First Week Back

Well we managed to stay on the schedule for the most part. But the part that didn’t stay on the schedule was because we aren’t yet at a place where we can work out 7 days a week. The plan that I outlined in the last post worked out well and going to the gym […]

The Plan

So after lots of, “But wait, what about this” conversations I think I finally have a plan that will incorporate all the things that are important to us: Family, Work, Exercise. This is probably not that fascinating for most of you, but I’m just putting it down here to have it written down somewhere.This is […]


As I prepare to go back to work next week this was the conversation that we had last night:

Leah: Ok, so wait, if we run on Tuesday and Thursdays, then we can run Saturdays and Sundays and get 4 days in but only ever run two days in a row

Jason: So then, go […]

One Week

This is my final week of maternity leave. I cannot believe after all the waiting and counting down of pregnancy that we are already at this point. Seriously all that crazy happened 11 weeks ago. Because we live in a country that boasts “family values” and yet makes no attempt to join every other country […]

Quite Amazing

Last week if we would have chatted I would have probably broken down in tears and told you there is no way I can have another baby with the two year old that had become a little crank monster. From pushing me away and saying, “go away mommy,” to just days full of tears and […]


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 […]

Teething and Tantrums

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 […]

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 […]

Perfection in Scheduling

I have gone through my share of crazy schedules.

Bike to metra. Lock bike downtown. Train to Wheaton where the car was left. Drive to Fermilab Bike to metra. Take bike on train. Train to Rt. 59. Bike from metra station to Fermilab Take the CTA to metra. Train to Wheaton. Drive to Lab. Drive […]
