First Day of Preschool!

I can’t believe this day is finally here!!  I have been dreading the first day of school for quite some time, and it really snuck up on me.  Of course I couldn’t sleep the night before, then in the morning instead of pressing snooze I turned my alarm off, so we had to hustle a […]

Breathe in that Mountain Air

Oh, friends.  If I had written this blog post this morning, how different (and by different, I mean aggressive) it would be.  I don’t know how much I should get in to it, this being a public “place” and all, so I’ll just give you an overview.  We are continuing our preschool evaluations and I […]

Happy 4th my Friends!

Dear friends (and family), I hope you had a great 4th of July!  I wrote this blog in my head on my 5 mile race this morning with some great friends.  I really have some amazing friends that allow my life to continue happily and I don’t thank them enough.  I have friends who come […]

Missing the Save

I’ll just come right out and say it, sometimes I feel strong and amazing and superhero like, like I can do it all.  I have these days where I feel like I’ve got it all under control, and I like it that way.  I make lists and follow schedules and it’s all a way of […]

Harry’s First Summer Camp

The Great Eval

My anxiety level has just peaked this evening due to our impending preschool evaluation tomorrow.  We have a meeting with our town’s special education program, and they plan to evaluate Harry for the upcoming school year.  Hold on, let me sip my wine and I’ll explain my two reasons for freaking out this evening, in […]

My Best 5 Miles, and Harry’s New Backyard

Saturday I ran the Spring Lake 5, which I have run every year for the past few.  It’s a tradition for me, and signifies the beginning of the summer.  It’s always on the Saturday before Memorial Day, and it’s the largest 5 mile race in the country.  This year the entries sold out in 9 […]

Love the Run

Hey, beginner runners!  I have some great news for you, a little secret I want to share.  Everyone hates their run at some point.  Sure, once in a blue moon we go out and the whole thing rocks.  There are probably also runners who love every second, and they can kiss my ass for all […]

I’ve Got the Feels!

Okay so I have a legitimate excuse for my week of silence.  This week my sister was in to visit, it was both my mom’s and my birthdays, and I finally graduated from nursing school! I feel overwhelmed with all of the emotion from the past few days.  It’s been quite the ride. When I […]
