My week in a nutshell..........

And nutty it was!!  My week started off with a bang.  Wade's head banging on the ground that is.  Monday I'm on the dreadmill and Kohl comes up and says Wade needs me downstairs.  I'm instantly pissed cause I know that once I get off that thing I'll never want to get back on.   I haul my ass downstairs cussing as I go and ask what the hell he wants......  Then I feel somewhat bad because he's sitting in the chair with blood on his face cause he's had a horse fall down with him.  Ooops......  I can instantly tell that he's broken his nose.  No one else will be able to tell, but I can.  I ask him if he wants to go to the doctor cause he's also hurt his wrist and to me it looks broken.  Of course he doesn't want to go to the Dr..  Only wimps go to the doctor.  I head back up to the dreadmill cause I'm annoyed that he won't go to the Dr..  Thirty minutes later here he comes and says he thinks he should go to the clinic.  REALLY????  NO SHIT!!  I was not impressed that he waited till I was dripping sweat to decide he wanted to go.  Pretty sure I even asked if I had time for a shower.  :)  Totally not sympathetic at that point.

Long story short.  Cat scan showed a fractured wrist, fractured nose, and fractured eye socket.  In which none of these are getting fixed cause the nose you can't tell, the eye socket might have been an old injury but we'll wait and see if his vision starts to go, and the wrist could be an old injury cause it's not bothering him much anymore.    While I am thankful that he's not hurting I am still leary about the eye socket and the muscle and tissue that has seaped into his sinus cavity.  I guess time will tell if he will have to get that fixed.  I guess I'll know when he starts to resemble a cyclopse.

It only went downhill from there......
Thursday Kohl comes in the kitchen and tells me I HAVE to come look at something.  I figure it's another of his brilliant corral designs that he's come up with so I tell him to wait a minute.  Five minutes later he comes back and tells me that I REALLY need to look out the window at something.  This is what he was talking about:

Wade's feed sled was on fire across the meadow.  I quickly explained to Kohl that next time if he just yelled "FIRE" it would help me greatly.  :) 

We hauled ass over there and ended up having to call the fire department to come put it out.  We were really lucky that it didn't burn any pasture up because the wind was blowing so hard that day.  Wade was none too happy though.  Shane remined us that bad things happen in 3's so I'm silenty sitting back waiting for the final blow.  My mom was quick to point out that if we were going somewhere that I should NOT let Wade drive.

And to finish off the horrible joyous week, I had to put on a swimming suit yesterday.  NOT FUN!!!!  Well, we did have fun, it just wasn't fun to squeeze myself into a bathing suit.  Jamie and I took Knight, Payton and some friends to the rec center for swimming for their birthdays.  They had a great time and I realized in order to look good in one of those damn things I should step away from the fridge.  :)

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 …
