The four of us, today

It was a nice day, so after Sam’s scouting trip to the library, we stayed out a bit. Found a model train show at a local museum, and we spent some time there, enjoying our leisure. It’s been an easy, casual day – very laid-back and relaxed. 🙂 (Despite, naturally, the fact that only Sam …

Pssst…

I’m racing for breast cancer again. 🙂 The race isn’t until late September, but I’m taking pledges now. Spread the word! The Komen Race for the Cure is probably one of the most powerful things in which I’ve ever been blessed to be involved, and I’ve promised myself that I’ll be doing it every year …

Here’s the funny part

When I’m sick, I feel better while exercising. I don’t know whether it’s the adrenaline pumping, or the distraction, or that my brain can then easily interpret elevated body temperature as normal instead of as a fever. Whatever it is, I feel good now. I’ll crash again in an hour, perhaps, but for now, all’s …

Explains that

I’m sick. My throat hurts, and my nose is running. So of course I’m getting ready to go to the gym. 🙄 Hey, it’s above the neck; if I was feeling sickness in my chest and lungs, I’d lay off the running, I swear! But since it’s confined to my head, I see no reason …

Yuck

In the past ten minutes, I have been suddenly overcome by a roaring case of augh. I just want to put my head on my desk and moan for a bit – no reason, just augh. Seriously. I don’t hurt – no headache or anything like that – and nothing has gone wrong specifically, other …

Pack meeting

Sam got his Tiger badge last night. I have no idea what that means. Well, I know it means that we did a lot of activities and signed a whole bunch of things in his handbook, but as to what the badge itself stands for, I’m at a loss. Is he still a Tiger Cub, …

Party decisions

Situation: a birthday party for a turning-seven-year-old. Magic-themed; a very friendly, inexpensive local magician has already been booked (and has sold me a life insurance policy, but that’s probably beside the point). We’re not sure how many guests, though it will probably be a smallish group. Location? Keep in mind that the host’s house is …

Mmmmm…

Good wedding anniversary, if a bit low-key. 🙂 We went down to the big outlet-type mall across the Illinois border from us and spent the day there, browsing and relaxing. Sort of reminded me of our honeymoon, shopping the outlet stores at Myrtle Beach, only with a lot more screaming from one little man who …

Deliciously wiped

I got it in my head that I wanted to run someplace pretty today. I knew there was a park to the south of us that has a nice, woody loop, and I was pretty sure it wasn’t too far away. Turns out that it was a perfect distance: about three miles away. The loop …

You might be a runner…

This was once a very, very, very long list, so I took out the most irrelevant ones, as they related to me. ‘Cause I can do that. 😉 For anyone who is crazy and obsessed with running, or whoever just loves the sport… Read more… or Read more right here… » …you can use “easy” …
