So two of the Dyed Divas did their second 5K this month. It was hard, it hurt, we wanted to quit. But we made it. Our time wasn't as good as the last one thanks to all the killer hills, but we finished...and we weren't last. If anythin... Read more

Yup, still in the land of the snow here. Don't get me wrong, I love snow days and being off and getting to sleep in some but even I'm getting bored and miss work. Plus, I know the kids have assessments coming up in March and now is crunch time... Read more
Snow, Snow, Go Away
Tuesday, January 28, 2014      1 comments

I'm gonna say it, I actually miss work/school. All these snow days are now giving me cabin fever (and since the only place I go is work since I can't really afford anywhere else,) it's starting to drive me batty. It's so easier to stick to my ... Read more

1) Be content; God has a plan, He will lead me where He wants me. 2) Be healthier-cut down on processed foods and bad sugars, especially soda and my love of Andy Capp's Hot Fries. 3) Train for and complete another 5K; if I do more than one... Read more
