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
Yesterday, to celebrate my first day off school, I changed all the winter/summer clothes in all my kids' dressers, boxed up a vanload of stuff to take to Goodwill, moved a computer from the kitchen table to my daughter's room, and stripped the w... 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?
Last... Read more
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
The day is almost over, and tomorrow I will be ready to burn off the chocolate eggs.
This afternoon I went for a bike ride with my 1st grader. We went almost 7 miles, and we had a great time together. She is the epitomy of the "middle c... Read more
Yesterday I attended a funeral for my good friend Edna, who I used to x-stitch with for many years until I moved to Bloomington. She was actually sidelined from stitching once her Parkinson's got to be too much for her, but she still came to th... Read more
