I need a break!

We had a couple slow drains in the new house. During the Thanksgiving clean up the kitchen sink wouldn't drain. It finally did. Then, I was doing laundry and we had water poring through the garage. It was coming from under the laundry room floo... Read more

I am a competitive person by nature. It's just who I am. I've learned to turn it into a positive thing, at times. emoticonRead more

I could fill this page with the list of everything that I'm thankful for. Here are two of them! The first is the official sign that was put up Tuesday night! They will close on December 18th. Read more

Getting "it" back!

I have used my elliptical twice since we moved into our current house. I've ran about the same, maybe a little more. What I've discovered is, I am out of shape! I can really tell that I'm not in the same shape as I once was. The elliptical ... Read more

My dog's first 5K.

Sunday, November 15, 2015      14 comments

Since I really haven't ran a lot in the past 6 weeks, I decided it was a great time to get my dog into running condition. I figured we could get into running shape together. We went out and I paced so that he could stay at a trot. We ended... Read more

We sold our house last night!! It was on the lower end of our "range," but we are extremely happy and thankful. We agreed to paying for radon mitigation, if it's needed, but that's all they asked for. No closing costs!! Read more

My first trail half marathon.

Saturday, November 07, 2015      16 comments

I haven't run for about a month. Today I was "crazy" and ran a half marathon trail run. It's my first 1/2 since I did my 12 runs in 12 months last year. I completely forgot some of the important things. I didn't take anything to eat while runnin... Read more

Yes Lord, I am listening!

For those of you that aren't spiritual, you may want to skip this one! However, I need to share. Here is a story of how I feel the Lord has worked in my life lately. Many of you know that my family has purchased a "new" house. It's actually... Read more

I have been pretty busy lately. Moving and setting up the "new" house has been a lot of work, but fun. We have downsized and are planning a big garage sale in the spring. I've been eating when I'm hungry and what I want. Last night I had a ... Read more

All moved in!

I haven't ran in a couple of weeks, but I am getting my workout in. We have completely moved into our "new" home. We started on Friday and and finished up on Sunday. I was so hopeful! While we were moving on Sunday we got a call that there... Read more

A good tired.

I haven't been "working out" per say. However, I have put in hours of cleaning and yard work so I am definitely getting enough exercise. I am three pounds below my goal weight so I know I'm still maintaining. I appreciate all the prayers, p... Read more

Signed papers

Friday, October 16, 2015      18 comments

Yesterday we signed papers on the "new" house. I felt really bad for my husband. I cried on the way there, made it through the signing, but cried on the way home. I am stressed about owning two houses. I am a little sad as our "old" house ... Read more

I won't lose the spark.

It's been a rough couple of days. I found out that a friend, that I had stuck by when no one else was, had lied and betrayed me. My daughter and I were there when she had her baby and have helped take care of the little girl. (I've posted about ... Read more

I'm taking the phrase "life is good" and running with it!

We have another open house tomorrow and we've had three showings. No offers, but I feel that we just aren't "there" yet for the family this house is meant for. The sellers of our house are getting bids from several companies so it looks like the... Read more

Postponed our closing.

Thursday, October 08, 2015      15 comments

We have postponed the closing on "our new house." There is a radon "issue" that needs to be fixed before we commit to this house. I really love this house, but if they can't fix it so that the mitigation system will actually take the radon out, ... Read more
