Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure:
Sweet Gherkin Pickles

Non-food Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure:

Reading.  An actual book.
Which Outfit did I Wear the Most:


What We Are Watching:
With the Kiddos:

Guess which kiddo is picking the cartoon shows?

My Viewing:

On the mill, Once Upon a time.  S'ghetti girl made the suggestion.  I actually enjoyed it!
When I get to control the tv, its Survivor.

Funniest/Best Kid Quote:

I was folding laundry on the couch while LBM sat in front of the tv.
He says, without even looking up from the handheld game he is playing, "Mommy I want that."
I simply agree and continue with my laundry folding.
LBM continues and says, "Yeah if I turn into a zombie I'll just take one of them and it will turn me back to a human."
That got my attention in time to see he had overheard a tv commercial for a product called MidNite.
LBM is pretty smart.

Their ad execs really hit the mark if they were aiming at the preschool market.  LBM is convinced we need to have that on hand just in case of a zombie attack.

Current Triumph:
Not to be a Debbie downer but I don't feel triumphant much right now.  Not making time goals has nothing to do with it.  I let myself down in my own behavior on the trails during FOTM.
Proverbs 16 16 - 23
16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul. 18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. 19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. 20 He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he. 21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning. 22 Understanding isis folly. 23 The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.

Current Goals
To better balance the responsibilities I hold.
To rest.
Current Blessing:
I am thankful for every single day and every person in my life.
Current Excitement:
VP of our newly formed PTO

Stone Mill 50 Miler

Current Concern:
My BIL had Leukemia.  It's back.

Getting over my current stomach issues so I can run long
...really long.
