This is the best time of the year to run, because the lilacs are blooming. The air is filled with the scent of them, and I love that so many of my neighbors have them. My husband just planted my Mother's Day lilacs on the side of the house, an... Read more
For the 2nd time in a row while exercising, I found a quarter on the ground. This morning, it came in handy because I borrowed from my anniversary jar to get a banana, so afterward when I found the quarter, I was able to pay it back. Also bana... Read more
Tonight I learned something very important about me and running: Never go after eating dinner. I thought I was gonna barf! :(
Also factor in the fact that I'm still choking on mucus from a cold I had 3 weeks ago. It was a rough 2.5 mile... Read more
I'm writing again, because I've decided that if I put this goal in front of me, I will try harder to get there. I've been wanting to go out for a run for about the past week, and I haven't brought myself to actually do it yet. I have 2 voices ... Read more
Last night I was excited to get Dan out on his bike after dinner, and our oldest watched all the little ones for us. I gave up my Friday night ride with the ladies' group, so I could go with him. We went 6 miles, with me in the lead and coasti... Read more

Good morning! The sun is coming up and I am eating my healthy b-fast before getting everyone moving for school/work. It's a good week so far. An awesome week, actually.
My classes are winding down, and I put together a to-do list for mys... Read more
I've been dreading this morning for about a month, and it wasn't bad. I gained about 10 lbs. less than I thought. Whew. Now, to get to work. ;)
After church today, I'm going riding. I have to take a couple kids with me, but that's okay... Read more
Best ride of 2011 was tonight. The best so far, that is. ;)
Tonight I met a few new friends in the ladies group I ride in, and I discovered I'm a faster rider than I was last year. And I decided I want muscular calves like my friend Suzy... Read more
I don't usually do these but it's a nice break from my homework. :)
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
No, but I was almost "Barbara Ann" after the Beach Boys song, then my parents nixed it.
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?

I think I'm finally ready to own one. Not the kind my husband has gotten shipped from Hong Kong for $1.50, I mean a good one with no shorts in the wires. This week I've been catching up on housework and unearthed a pile of old CD's from back b... Read more
I can see dawn on the horizon, the semester is almost over. I just finished doing a bunch of homework. Today I have to have a 10 minute conversation in Spanish, with my Spanish professor. I just want this semester to be OVER so I can concentr... Read more
You know it's spring when you are dodging earthworms on the pavement while riding your bike. :D
This morning I rode 12.8 miles, and it was a lovely (wet) ride. It's amazing to me, how many people drive in from the country early in the mor... Read more
The day after a holiday is very hard, because grocery stores sell chocolate for CHEAP. This morning, I had to go to Kroger because I was out of bread, and I got out of there with a loaf of bread and 2 bananas. I'm so proud of myself!
I ... Read more
