Random Ramblings....

Whewww..............This week has been packed full of crap to do and I feel like none of it has gotten accomplished.  Monday was tax work which is almost done and I'm thankful for that.

 Tuesday I went to the big "city".  We're 100 miles from the closest Walmart. Which to some would be horrific but for us it's a blessing.  I took one kid to school and the other to daycare for their Valentine's party.  I was making an entire day of it because that evening the high school had a District bball game close by.  NEVER leave me unattended in the "city" without proper supervision!!  Especially after a weekend of finding fabulous organization ideas on Pinterest.  Ughhh.....that website is bad news for someone that has felt like they have way too much crap in the house or they just need a way to organize that crap.  Needless to say, I have ALOT of projects I can do for the next few weeks.  One will involve numerous pics of my kids that will result in them not smiling and generally being pissed off at mom for shoving a camera in their face.  I did refrain from purchasing paint.  I'm saving that for a weekend when my husband is gone and I can "surprise" him.  Mainly due to the fact that he said we are NOT painting again.  I'm still looking for that other person in the "we" he's talking about.  If I ever find the asshole "we" he's getting an ass kicking for his lack of help!!

Wednesday turned into a "hurry and get some of the projects done day so that your husband doesn't see how much shit you really bought during your 8 hours in the city".   Snuck in a 4 mile run outside which really felt great and washed a million loads of laundry. 

Today is another "get this house in order" day before we have elementary bball practice later.  I tell ya what, if you live anywhere near me one might want to go dumpster diving cause I'm getting rid of shit.  Which to some might not seem like shit.  Either way, it's gone.  Except the really good stuff, it's going on Ebay!!  Really, I'm not gonna throw something out that I could make a buck on.  I'm cheap.  And I might need that money to go buy some more shit!  :)

A few of my favorite running quotes........

I love motivational quotes, pictures, sayings.  They're good for the soul and make me feel like I can accomplish what I set out to do.  I used some when the volleyball season started this year and it really helped the girls see they can accomplish what they set out to do.  Here are some of my favorites!!

I love this one!!  People constantly tell me they have no time for exercise.  They assume since I am a stay at home mom that I sit around all day with hours of free time.  NOT.  I know alot of people who are really busy that still find time to exercise!!

Just found this one today!  Love it and it will be on my fridge soon!

Or a bigger one.......which I think is happening to me.  :(

The "for the rest of your life" kinda scared me at first.  :)  But it's the truth.  If you want it you have to work for it!

I tell myself this when I want to quit.

I've started and now I know that I won't quit!  I love running and I love how it makes me feel!

Ode to the running shoe.......

Size 11.  And I'm not referring to my pant size.  That's my ginormous shoe size.  Who cares, you say!  I care.  I'm 5'3".  Yeah, you read that right.  I wear a size 11 shoe have a head the size of a watermelon and nothing in between stretched far enough to be called tall.  When my husband and I were dating, my future MIL asked me why I was wearing his shoes.  And she wasn't joking.  Not only are my feet huge, they are flat as a pancake.  I'm also bow legged and pigeon toed.  Major problem.  I was so bow legged when I was little my parents had to put Forest Gump braces on my legs at night to sleep.  Seriously.  And "f" off for laughing!!!!!   I have a hell of a time finding the right shoes.  Nothing was different when I began the search for the "perfect" running shoe.

We live on a ranch 21 miles from the closest town and 100 miles from a Walmart.  I rarely run on pavement.  This is my running "track" most days and while I love …

Taking a run on the dreadmill.........

This is sorta how I feel when I have to run on the treadmill.   I've come to dread it!!  I would much rather run outside, but there are days when I just have enough time to run upstairs and start up the treadmill.  I try to watch mindless reality tv that requires no deep thought or concentration.  What I usually end up doing though is watching my mileage and at the EXACT moment I hit my target for the day, I hurtle myself from that damn machine.  Literally, I cannot get off fast enough. 

A few weeks ago we spent the night at my MIL's house.  She just got her home gym all set up and so I used her treadmill for a quick workout while I was there.  I despise her...............because she has a BITCHIN treadmill.  Seriously, felt like I was floating on a cloud instead of pounding the concrete like mine now feels like after experiencing HEAVEN on hers.  This is how I felt while on the BITCHIN treadmill.
No REALLY!!!!!!!!  It was like I was outside cause it has one of those monitors …
