Night terrors.......:(

Our oldest child has ALWAYS been terrified of the dark.  Ever since he was a baby and we'd walk out of a building at night and he'd cry till we got to the car and could turn on a light.  :(  I thought maybe we were getting out of that stage but lately it's getting worse.  To the point where last summer he decided he and his little brother should get bunk beds and share a room.  That's when I knew it was bad.  Who the hell wants to share a room with the red headed devil!!  Lately, Kohl has been falling asleep either in the chair before bed or immediately when his head hits the pillow.  For some reason, this freaks Knight out.  He wants to be the first to fall asleep. 

This week has been particularly bad with the night/dark terrors.  I've tried everything short of sleeping meds to try and get him to sleep soundly.  I feel terrible for him.  He decided last night he should try sleeping in his old room.  It worked for a few hours but this morning he was on our floor sleeping.  When he was 3 I redecorated his room with his favorite cartoon character and he loved it.  Eventually slept great!  So, I figure it's time for the army to take over.  His room is getting a military makeover.  I mean really, what night creatures are going to get past this:

Product Details  What kid wouldn't want an army tank on their wall to protect them?

I also ordered him camo bedding, some army posters, and this badass toy chest.

Product Details  And......I'm going to paint one of his walls camo.  He requested the whole room being camo but I thought that might be a little too much.  :)  I should get him a sign for his door.  Something to keep out "night things".  I'm thinking this would NOT be appropriate.

Funny???  YES!  Appropriate??  NO!!

Wish me luck.  And if anyone has a desire to help paint a wall camo......come on over!!

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 …
