March Madness

Hello Internet remember me? Yup, I'm the one that really was going to blog more this year. umm, well you know how that goes. As I've always been one to make lots of attempts before I get it right I'm going to try to be better at this. You know I'm a big fan of bullet points when I haven't posted for awhile so here we go.

  • Sydnee has been home this week for her spring break. Like always it has been great having her home.

  • Natalie and I joined the local gym right up the road. She had been bugging Dave and I for awhile to get her a gym membership and since she needed an adult to be on the membership with her I signed up too. It's been something we do together and wait for it I have really liked doing this with her. I needed to do something anyway because I committed to Sydnee that I would do the Disney princess 1/2 marathon with her next February. So it has begun. I was a little troubled last week when I was bragging to Dave how quickly I have gone from a 2.5 on the treadmill to a 3.2. I have figured out that I have to get to a 3.8 pace on the treadmill to maintain the 16 minute mile rule that Disney has for their marathons (or they throw you off the course embarrassing ) so I was expressing that I was moving up pretty quickly since at the time I had only been going to the gym about two weeks. Of course he comes back with "well you know that you will have to maintain that for 3 hours and 28 minutes." WHAT, REALLY? You're kidding right? No, he wasn't so that was kind of a reality check. But you know what? Oh well, I'm doing it. I'm up to 45 minutes now so you know, only 165 more to go. Good thing I have got a year!!!

  • I'm watching what I eat again too and it's amazing how much better you feel when you are eating right. Who knew??? LOL

  • Little League softball has started back up for McKenlee (Natalie decided not to play this year much to my disappointment) so between travel ball and rec ball we are spending the weekends and many week nights at the ball fields.

  • Natalie has a boyfriend. (She's going to kill me for that one) but I can't help it my shy girl has a boyfriend. His name is Thor and he seems like a great kid. Any kid who plays and talks to my little guys always score's brownie points with me. My little Elijah thinks he is awesome.

  • We are heading to the mountains of North Carolina at the end of this month for spring break. We can't wait, we are very excited. I never thought I would say this but we are hoping it will be cold. (not freezing mind you, we are after all from Florida) But we would like some cooler weather so we can wear some cozy sweaters and boots and hike those gorgeous mountains without sweating our booties off. We have had such a warm winter (my air has been on and off almost all winter) that we would love a little climate change.

  • I guess that kind of sums everything up. Have a wonderful weekend.......
