So Much Fun!

Yesterday I got to go watch the Junior High Cross Country Meet!
I was in heaven!
I had the time of my life!
I love watching people run!
Especially when you know them!

The kids did AWESOME!
I was so proud of them!

I have been known to tell my kids, that I would love them to run, but I want them to do what they want to do!
I will NOT be disappointed if they don't run!

I NEED my kids to run!
It is just so stinkin' fun!!!

I lost my keys on the course!
Not the smartest thing to do!
"Did you back track your steps?"
I was ALL over that whole golf course!
Lucky for me I have a SUPER BIG....OBNOXIOUS....key chain!
So someone found them and turned them in!

Lesson learned!
The BIGGER the BETTER!....when it comes to key chains and cross country meets!

A Little Foggy!

What a long drawn out illness!
It's been over two week and I still have a foggy head!
At least I am feeling somewhat better!

The main question I am getting is...
Are you pregnant?????
I can understand...since usually when I am ill, I am pregnant...especially when it drags on for days and weeks!

I am not!
Just clogged up!

I have been helping out with the Junior High Cross Country kids...unfortunately due to weather, we have had more canceled practices, than actual practices!
It is fun to encourage young kids to be all they can be...and to believe in themselves!
I enjoy their young spirits!

Home school is dreamy! My kids and I are enjoying every moment as we learn together!
They work hard...and they are self motivated...which in return, makes my job easier!

My patiently waiting for me to feel better! I love that seems to always be there!

I've been tagged!

The Flu Bug Caught me!

Seems early in the season...maybe I will be able to get it over with early!

This is one of those treats I don't wish to pass on...I will NOT be tagging any of you...just wishing you HEALTHY week!

I'm being STALKED!!!

I am 100% sure that I am being a rain cloud!
It can be beautiful outside...and then I decide to go for a run!
I check the sky...
everything looks absolutely PERFECT!
So I run...

not a little....

I have had quite a few people tell me they are surprised at my dedication!
I hate to disappoint them...but it has nothing to do with dedication...and everything to do with STALKING!
I feel like giving them the blog address of thousands of dedicated athletes!

Now before this post comes across as complaining...
I actually do not mind rain...even hard rain...
It peaceful really....
I rarely feel the pains of age...while running through small pieces of hail!

I just find it ironic...that every time I manage to make it out of the house for a run...the rain cloud is over head...watching out for me????

Flood Gates are Open!

Thanks to Giorgio and Genesis for this super fun award!

This rule comes with the rule that I have to tell about one time or thing in my life that I would go back and change if I could!

While running yesterday, I thought about this question....
and I realized this was going to be a Rambling Post!
It opened the Flood here we go!

What would I change?


I wish I would have accepted the full ride scholarship to University of Utah and finish my degree. I signed on....but backed out, due to extreme eating disorders.

If I had changed that part of my life I may not have met the man of my dreams...and I may not have experienced the last 14 years of Happy Marriage!

I would go back and change the way I stressed about not being able to have kids. We tried for 4-5 years to have a baby...NOTHING! I was so worried! I should have just fully embraced the time without kids....but I had NO idea....that I would soon be a rabbit!

If I changed the way I looked at it...maybe my heart would not have been open to have as many kids as the Lord would allow me. Maybe I wouldn't have my 5 blessings!

I would change some of the business decisions that put a strain on our family and ultimately caused me to have to go back to work for 6 years and work 40-70 hours a week. And miss out on so much of my childrens young lives.


Maybe I wouldn't grasp the amazing opportunity I have right now to be home with them. Maybe I wouldn't look at each moment as though it was made of gold. Maybe I wouldn't cherish each morning, mid day, and evening.

I came to the conclusion...

I am not sure I would change much....I would fear the effect that change would have on my life today!
