Two WHOLE days!!!!.........

My kids were angels.  Well.....except for the occasional "butt" comments from Kohl.  We left on Friday morning for Knight's checkup in Denver.  First we had to stop in OG at the chiro so I could get adjusted.  Before we went in I gave the kids the what for in the car about sitting there quietly while I got worked on.  I mean let's face it.  If you know the little red head you all know that when he gets around anyone besides Wade and I he completely loses it.  He shows off.  And that's usually in the form of saying things that he probably shouldn't.  And completely embarassing me.  :)  He was great though which made me wonder what the hell he was trying to get me to do for him. 

Next stop.  Denver.  Again, we went to Knight's hour long appt. and neither of them whined or complained that we weren't done yet.  Knight let them take his blood like a trooper and we were on our way.  I was doing a happy dance because his seizures are under control now and he doesn't have to go back for 6 months.  The kids were excited because we could now head to Grandma's in Fort Collins. 

We went swimming at the rec center, visited a train museum and went to a Barnes & Noble without any major meltdowns.  I always say a little prayer before going in a large store.  It usually includes the following, "Lord please let me get through this shopping experience without the store throwing us out or calling the cops for a major disturbance."  :)  But again, NOTHING.  Well, unless you count Kohl getting super sad when we left cause he thought Grandma had bought him a Spongebob book and we both thought he didn't want the Spongebob book.  Needless to say, Grandma went back in and got the book and everything was great again. 

I went shopping at the outlets and discovered I have a major problem.  All I want to buy is running gear.  It's sad really.  My wardrobe right now consists of shorts, dri fit anything, and running shoes.  Running shoes that I have 5 pair of right now but have 2 favorites so should really sell those "extra" 3 pair.  But I got some really great deals at Nike and Under Armour that I should have couldn't pass up!!

Decided to leave early Sunday morning to head home because we all know how kids are after you've been gone for a weekend and then they have to go back to school on Monday.  GROUCHY!!  It only took about 2 hours of traveling for the MONSTERS to return to my life.  I got a good 2 days out of them though so that's a good start!!  We had a great little getaway and now I could use a getaway with myself.  :)  Or maybe a drink.


  1. Glad you had a great weekend and Knight's appt went so well. If you sold those 3 extra shoes your only kinda sorta love you could get 3 more pair you really totoally love. Just sayin'

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 …
