Family Couch to 5K
I started back with "couch to 5K" on Saturday. I bought heel cushions to help my feet, and I've been walking to keep in shape since I started having heel pain. My daughter Mary (10) tried to come with me. She had a hard time since she didn't ... Read more
June 8th, Birthday Blog
A week ago, the kids made a big deal about Daddy's birthday. We had a perfect day with a bike ride up in Sioux City. Yesterday, the kids came in to wake me up and were surprised when I mentioned it was my birthday. I had orders to stay in bed... Read more
We were hoping to go on a family adventure this weekend, up to Sioux City to do some bicycling and shopping. Storms hit our area Friday night. This was after some pretty bad storms already hit earlier in the week and temporarily flooded our li... Read more
Okay, I'm bummed. My heel started bugging me this week, it may have been Tuesday when I noticed. It still bothered me some on Wednesday, but I thought not so bad. That was until I had done 2 miles of walking/jogging (C25K week 2, day 2) and s... Read more

Daily Spark Inspired Me
Yesterday I read the Daily Spark Blogs, "Think You're Too Big to Run..." parts one and two. These have inspired me to step it up a little with my walks. I've been wondering if I'm burning enough energy with my walks. Already, I've tried some ... Read more
Our Brains Finally Started Working!
Brian's home safe and sound from his trip to Phoenix. We spent his first day back shopping for a dresser for my oldest daughter. We've spent the last couple of years rearranging where the kids sleep. We finally got our third bunk bed in the f... Read more
Brian made it home safe and sound late last night. I think it was around midnight. I stayed up for him, watching too much TV. It kept me awake, though. His trip went well and he made some good business contacts. He also brought us some pres... Read more
Feeling Better, But Lonely
I know that sounds crazy, me lonely. I have six kids. How on Earth can I be lonely?
I'm feeling much better. I was actually feeling better from the stomach bug yesterday. The weather is beautiful, so I went for a walk (2.2 miles), an... Read more
I'm Too Busy to be Sick!!!
This weekend wasn't so bad. I worked Friday through Sunday, but really enjoyed the people I worked with. It got busy at times and slow at times. The usual strange orders that pop up (I'm a hospital pharmacist), but nothing to overwhelm me. I... Read more
A New Activity: Twin Aerobics
Yesterday, I was reading Spark articles, getting as many points as I could while eating my lunch. I read advice on selecting workout DVDs. One thing suggested was to use Netflix and try out DVDs before putting any real money toward them.

May Showers Bring June Flowers?
I haven't blogged since last Thursday, so I thought I'd give an update. The kids did great this weekend. Stevie had his First Communion, and Mary and Pat had their Confirmation. We had a fun party afterward to celebrate. Boy! Can Brian smoke... Read more
Thank you everyone who posted comments on my "Bummed" blog. You've inspired me to keep at it. It's been a stressful week too, but I'm making it through. The house is presentable now for our party on Sunday. There's still some work for tomorr... Read more
I was anxious for yesterday to arrive. It's May, time to weigh again. I knew I would be right by my doc's office, so I used the same scale as the previous few months. The good news is that it went down. The kind of depressing news is that I'... Read more
