What the scale can't measure.

Sunday, August 30, 2015      10 comments

Another good one to keep in mind. A scale can't measure our greatness and a number doesn't define us. We all have talents, beauty and greatness with... Read more

Anniversary dinner

Saturday, August 29, 2015      12 comments

Yesterday was my 22nd anniversary. Not bad for a guy that didn't want to get married or have kids. Not only did he get married, he has four kids. (Plus many that come in and out and call us their second parents.) Yes, I am a blessed woman! ... Read more

Sad, disappointing news.

My younger daughter is a Godmother to a 6 month old little girl. We were fortunate to watch her being born and have helped take care of her since she was a newborn. Not only does my daughter and I love this little girl, but all of the kids adore... Read more

A night time run.

Monday, August 24, 2015      9 comments

I went out for a "short" run last night. It was the perfect weather with temps in the 60's and a light cool breeze. I started out nice and easy and thought to myself how much I've come to love running. I ended up running 8.45 miles! It wa... Read more

This is so true. There will always be someone thinner, more athletic, smarter, richer, etc. than me. However, I am thinner, more athletic, smarter, rich... Read more

Saturday and an update.

Saturday, August 22, 2015      5 comments

I went to watch my oldest daughter's first scrimmage of the season. Most of the new recruits played, so she sat the bench a lot. She is not used to that! However, she understands the politics of the game and knows that the coach will play his re... Read more

Look what I found on my run tonight!

I was running a short 2 1/2 miles with my "nonrunning" daughter when this little thing caught my eye. He was only a sidewalk away from a very busy s... Read more

I signed up for my first trail 1/2 marathon.

Thursday, August 20, 2015      11 comments

I signed up for my first 1/2 marathon trail style. I am running it with a friend. She hasn't run much this year, but we are doing it solely for fun. I can't wait. It's in November, so the weather should be perfect! Nice and cool, but hopefully... Read more

Moving so much, I'm losing weight.

Tuesday, August 18, 2015      11 comments

I struggled with three pounds all summer. No matter how much I exercised and watched what I ate, I couldn't get to the low end of my weight range. Not so anymore! My class is a challenge, and I still have two more coming that will be just ... Read more

Surrounded by kids and I love it.

This is my 24th year of teaching. I was asked what kind of school I teach in. I teach in a public school, but in a self-contained special education classroom. I will have nine students this year. I have had students that range from "mild intelle... Read more

BUSY with all caps!

I don't think I have ever gone this long without blogging! I am back in school, can you tell? emoticon I ha... Read more

Getting rid of sparkpoints!

Tuesday, August 04, 2015      18 comments

I am on a new quest to give away all my sparkpoints. I love giving goodies and I'm trying to "spread the spark" to my sparkfriends. I hope to be under 100 soon. (It may take a while!) Read more

Really?! Ok, changing goals!

As most of you know, we just got home from a five day vacation in the upper peninsula of Michigan where my husband is from. I ate Mackinac Island Fudge ice cream everyday and yes, even a large on some days. Pasties and pizza once. So I didn't de... Read more

Home again.

We made it home in record time, 12 1/2 hours. We were quite happy with six of us and the dog packed into my Mazda. We all fit four years ago when I bought it. Darn kids have to grow up! Read more
