Going to Over Do It?

It has been great getting back into a running routine. I used to say it takes about 2 weeks to get into a routine and I still think that holds. Although with two kids I think it will be more like 3 or 4 weeks. I know when I start things I tend to over […]

The Napping House

Why…Hello there! Yes you, you that still somehow has a feed to my blog that I haven’t updated in oh much much too long. Especially considering last time I was here I was talking about being pregnant, and the new house that we were going to close on. We have lived in the house for […]


I read this the other day: http://www.mamapedia.com/voices/an-open-letter-to-time

And then my eyes got a little watery at work.

I look at Lucy these days and I want to ask her where she came from. This goofy, chattering, tall, hilarious girl. She can’t be my daughter, because my daughter is a little baby girl. Of course she […]

Running in the Rain

There is nothing quite like running in the rain in my opinion. If the temperature isn’t too low, and the wind is low it’s probably one of the most enjoyable running sessions for me. That wasn’t quite what the weather was last night, but I’m on a mission to run 3 times a week. Our […]

How many of you watch Modern Family? Well I know I should watch it more than I do because every time we catch an episode I laugh so hard that I just about pee my pants. Seriously last time I watched an episode I was laughing so hard my stomach muscles ached.

Anyways there was […]

Motivation? Where Did You Go?

Seriously, it doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that I was pumped to run and was running 8:whatever minute miles.

I know, I know I just said on the last post that I’m just happy to be running at all. That’s a Lie.

I want to run far again and I just can’t […]

Been Awhile….To Say the Least

Looking back, it looks like my last post with some actual content was just about two months ago. I have to say that’s pretty lame and as such I can already tell my writing is going to suffer here. Because you know what, practice makes perfect (or at least better) and so when there is […]

18 Months & A Comment on Parents

Well, where I have been. Busy! Where am I now? Princeton, New Jersey for the D0 Collaboration meeting. I’m up early and so I have some time.

Do you know that the little miss Lucille has turned 18 months old. This is what she looks like:

Wait….whose’s kid is that? Can’t be mine, I […]
