A Little Celebration

Today I was afforded the chance to take a step back, something I haven’t been able to do in a very long time.  Yesterday was my nursing final, and I was really worried about it.  It was challenging and I didn’t do particularly great on it, but overall I will end up with a B. […]

Running Favorites

So my buddy Sarah tagged me in her post about running favorites, and honestly I forgot about it for a while!  I don’t have many runner friends with blogs that I can tag, but maybe I’ll work on finding some more blogs that I love and possibly making some friends. Location:  Trail, Road, or Indoors? […]

The Love Run – Philly Half Marathon

Today I woke up a different person.  I am now part of this elite club of runners that has pushed their body and done the seemingly impossible!  But this is only part of my journey.  I will continue after this, especially because I feel so empowered. This weekend went by in a blur.  Friday I […]

Trying to Hang on to that Wave

Some times things happen when you’re least expecting them.  I’ve been so distracted lately with visitors, traveling, and preparing for the end of my semester/getting ready for preceptorship, graduation, and moving on to my BSN.  Monday morning was catch up from traveling because I worked on Sunday, but Harry and I still had to go […]

Taking a Michi-gander

Our next adventure for spring break week was a trip to Michigan.  Josh is from there and moved to Jersey about eight years ago.  Between school and life and figuring everything out with Harry, we haven’t been out there much.  In fact, Harry had only met his Grandma Roni and Uncle Ben once when they […]

The Australians Come to Visit

Sorry for the delay in posting, but it’s been quite crazy around here!  We are on the road right now on the way back from Michigan, and before that we had our Australian friends visiting for a couple of days!  They have come out to visit us a couple of times now, and we are […]

Finally, a Good Snow Day!

Finally! We had a snow day today that I didn’t miss anything for!!  Every other snow day this semester has screwed me out of a lecture at school.  Today, we missed clinical, but that’s not too terrible as we had it last night.  I did, however, miss out on the gym, but I used my […]

30 Miles and I’m Officially Crazy!

This past week I ran 30 miles.  30.   In one week.  What’s wrong with me?  This running bug is like nothing else I’ve ever experienced in my life.  My buddy Kristen told me she read a quote that said something like “I ran and ran and then found myself”.  I couldn’t agree more with that […]

Hope, Help, and Healing

Yesterday, Harry and I had our weekly visit with our amazing chiropractor, Dr. Tyler Richards.  We always have the nicest conversations, and I always feel physically and mentally better when I leave.  I would highly recommend him, especially for pediatric patients.  He’s got a great bedside manner.  We talked about a lot of things that […]

Chugging Along

So we’re a couple of days in to hubby’s recovery, and so far so good.  He’s having a hard time slowing down and accepting help, but realizes how important it is.  Thankfully my parents live close and are basically saving us.  Thank goodness for grandparents!  Harry sure is enjoying the extra visitors! As you know, […]
