The great thing about forgiveness, to me is the more I receive, the more I want to share it with others. I am sorry that it has taken me the greatest amount of time and effort to learn to forgive myself, but I am thankful that it is possible and becoming easier with time.


garfieldsleepLast night I was up really late and I’m not one of those people who that works for. Even when I was in high school and college, I needed my sleep. I did one or two all-night parties and one or two all-night study sessions, decided it was not a big deal (definitely not worth the crash that came afterward) and went back to going to bed early. I did getting up early way better than I did staying up late. I still do.  I’ve managed to keep up with everything pretty well today but I’ve seen one or two things slip, like while I was trying to get the kids’ breakfast and when I almost forgot to eat something myself. Now I’m really starting to feel like it is going to be an early night. Yawn. Stretch. Good Night.

Product Review. Lunchbots

Lunchbots are transformers, but they are not robots. They have changed my cabinets into a much neater place. because where I had several plastic containers for snacks and lunches, I now have a few stainless-steel boxes. I’ve had my Lunchbots for a few months and they are bpa free, durable, easy to clean, keep snacks in and are much better for my family than the containers they replaced.

12.26 miles: The Breakthrough

It’s been a tough week for Little A. She has been struggling through some kind of funky bug that has gone around at school. She’s at home with me today, which means I couldn’t go for my walk and I didn’t meet my mileage goal, but that’s ok. There’s enough to do around the house (and on my to do list) to keep me occupied and even burn a few calories 🙂 . I almost completely forgot that next week is Spring Break. I think we’re going to have a good week and get a lot done. I’m firming up Easter plans now.

At the beginning of the week, I got caught in a storm and really discouraged. If there would have been any way that I could have just quit and gone home, I would have. I kept going. Thursday I refused to get slowed down and everything went better. I was jogging in the rain and the wind. I can’t wait to get back out there and get better and better times.
