Wind in the Valley is nasty. Jeff and I were determined to run outside today, we bundled up in layers and figured we would make it. Sometimes the smartest people can be idiots. Again we got about half a block from home and the wind was ... Read more

Jeff and I started the couch to 5K this week, I loved it and Jeff hated it. This is normal, I should mention that Jeff and I have NOTHING in common. I mean nothing, we don't like the same music, movies, foods, politics, activities. I can't im... Read more

The wind howled as I stepped outside, trees threw branches as warning to turn back. A dog howled in the darkness. Ok, maybe it wasn't quite that dramatic but it was one heck of a windstorm and I did start the first day of couch to 5K. ... Read more

I'm home again after running away and hiding for a couple of days, but spent most of the day yesterday playing couch slug. It's a lot like couch potato but even less energy. Last night I decided I needed to change things up, my moods ha... Read more

Yesterday I bragged about my Shelby, the princess that she is. Last night I got one of the most terrifying calls a mother could get. I live in a small town, more cows than people. The type of town where my kids could get on their bikes ... Read more

This is one of the phrases I remind myself when I'm struggling with so many different personalities. Often someone is going to tick you off, no way to avoid that and it's easy to deal with. However when I constantly say this person is annoying, ... Read more

The email I got yesterday asking me to come to Oregon wasn't a joke, they wanted me there next week but my boss stepped in and said no, she's grounded. Such wonderful words to hear. Of course I know that means that he has a ton of work to ... Read more

Back home again and enjoyed a wonderful weekend curled up with my daughter watching movies. I found it easy to switch back to North American time, it is amazing how flying business class can make all the difference. I was able to use one o... Read more
