Guess What I have Been Doing

This is really going to shock you, I know. I guess I am still pretty excited about it.


I have been running every chance I get. I realized last week that as long as I don’t run hills, my leg is fine. (No, really! Many of you know how much I used to hate hills and avoid them at all costs, but I got over that. My leg is just not ready for them yet.) So I am trying to talk the girls into going out as much as we can. I talked them into signing up for my favorite race so now they have to train with me!¬† Yay!!! ūüėȬ† April Fool’s Half, here we come. We are going to have the best time.


But if they can’t make it, I am learning to love running by myself again. It’s not as much fun as being with friends, but you get something totally different out of it. After running by myself my head is totally clear.


Running in the snow is so beautiful. Today was not runnable on the trail¬†without Trax though. I’m so glad I got them last winter!


I just went through my spring race calendar and I am getting really excited. :-)


Aidan made a ping pong ball launcher in Scouts. Thanks, Mr. Gatto!¬† Actually he loves it. He would like to bring it to his next Nerf War, but we decided that wouldn’t be fair.


We finally had a real snow day. Not nearly as much as we were expecting, but enough to cancel school. Good enough!


The girls and I snuck some girl time in too. Always a blast. Sushi and RumChata and lots of laughs.

So, I am wondering, do you like to talk while you run, or just listen?

Sledding! And Snow Blowing!

Today was a day of winter fun.¬† After sleeping in late (these days are coming to an end soon) I received a text from my dad offering to come over with his snow blower.¬† Now that is a good way to start a day with a fresh 4 –¬†6 inches of snow on the ground!¬† Of course I jumped at the offer.¬† How can you beat good company and a fast tool while cleaning off¬†your driveway!¬† We had fun doing it and decided to help some neighbors as well.

By the time we were done the boys could not wait to go sledding.  We met up with our good friends and headed to the local hill.

I thought we would be watching the boys, but LuAnn had other ideas.

It was so much fun!¬† Now I see why the boys couldn’t wait.

L & C

The boys rode their sleds until they were almost frozen.  It was seriously cold here today.  In fact tonight we are supposed to get into negative temperatures!


The cold did not stop them from having snowball fights though.  They are boys, after all.

We warmed up with hot chocolate and brownies while the boys plotted a sleepover.  LOL.  Wish me luck tomorrow!

So, I am wondering, when was the last time you went sledding?
