morning run.....

So the kids are on their way to school!!! I'm going to get ready to go for a run, just a fun relaxing one. This morning was a little nuts it is spirit day and the kids dressed in black and red, one kid told me it was black and red and the other told me it was black and white. They both went with black and red, and I also painted a bobcat print on their cheek. Not long after it was on they smudged it already. Thats what kids do.

Tomorrow is my baby girls 8th birthday and this party was the one I was dreaming of having. She wants Dalmatians and black pink and white. I am so excited for it!!!! I love Dalmatians I have loved them since I was a teenager. Not to mention she wants pink and black and white. I am doing a mini cake with Dalmatian dog cupcakes around it and sugar cookies in the shape of dog bones. I will post pictures after Saturday. I'm hoping her friends come and she invited her librarian I thought that was a riot!!! She actually told her she was coming. After my run I have to get back to clean this place really good, Thursday I have school, and Friday I work than I have to get up for Trevors soccer game @ 9am than it's party time!!!!

study, study, study......

I have been going to school for almost 3 weeks and it is moving by very quickly, I am left with very little time to enjoy my family. So much has happened!!! Where should I start, My Grandma left for Florida this morning and earlier we celebrate Briannas Birthday so she could enjoy it too. She had an awesome time and got nice gifts from her family.

We went out and enjoyed a day at Wilcotts orchard.......well let correct that, it kinda wasn't the best. Apples were expensive, they didn't have any rides going and they didn't have their hay rides up and going. It really was a bummer:( but as the picture shows its not where we were its was who we were with.

This is the 4 generation, Phyllis the Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother also known as GG. Cheryl the Mother and Grand mother, Me of course Christyna just the mother for now and Brianna my little precious princess:

Only my second day of school and I went out to buy a rolling backpack, my books don't even fit in that!!! I think I need a suitcase, no kidding when I say I have spotted a few. It is a ton of work but I am ready....haha I hope:) I have to get out and run tomorrow morning, I think I am going to do my normal "almost" 6 miles. I love it and it is in an area where there are things going on all the time. I just feel like I cant anymore I am bummed I think it is age and I know for sure it is some what genetics as well, I'll never be fast but hey I'm doing it.

jumping into fall.....

We are getting closer to fall and that makes me, well not so excited however I do like the change of seasons in Michigan. The only problem I have with fall is the next season is winter and it seems to last forever. So I sent the kids to play out in the nice cooler days of late summers and I had to twist their arm to do it. Ultimately I won the battle. Plans were when the kids got off the bus I was going to play with them and unknown to me they invited their friends to play, they played outside, a little frustration with them in and out but I had to put a stop to that. We ended up leaving to go to the store and both neighbor kids had to go home, they were not happy but life as it is. We got back from the store ate dinner and made pumpkin oatmeal cookies. I had two. Ok so I tasted some of the batter, oh man they won't be around here for long. With the up coming days ahead I get excited because it gives me an excuse to bake. I love to bake, anything that is. I make a gazillion cookies every year, one for the post man the UPS driver the teachers at school get my point, lots of cookies. Earlier today I spent my time doing all the laundry and cleaning I also rented a movie "The Backup Plan" with Jennifer Lopez and the whole time I watched it I was on the elliptical 1hr. 40min. and over 1,000 calories burned I felt pretty good. Not so sure that thing tells the truth. Have a long day tomorrow I get up bright and early to take Trevor to his first soccer game @ 9:00am and than I have to go to work @ 2:30. I for sure am going to be tired. When I get home I'm going to need to read my school books. That's all for now.......

The first day of school......

This means I'll be back to school as well, RN clinicals. Nervous a little but I just want it over with. As for my kids the morning went by smoothly and Brianna was so excited however Trevor didn't show the same excitement. It was bitter sweet watching them get on the bus a leaving. I did forget to cry only because I didn't want to take away the happiness of them. I visited the porcelain goddess and read a small story then I headed out for a run. I was doing pretty good the first 4 miles 9:45 min/mile but because I decided to run my course backwards only thinking of that awful headwind, I got it ALL the way back home. It just about killed me!!! I'm still alive and getting ready to take a bath now. In the Peace and quiet.

Both kids getting on the bus.....
This is my beautiful Brianna she was so excited!!!
This is my handsome little guy Trevor.
Brianna hooked her lunch bag to her backpack it was so big I think she will do better if she just put her lunch inside her bag. Trevor has the same backpack but it is on back order I hope to get it this week sometime.
Thumbs up for an awesome day!!!!! I love you guys!!!!

rain, rain go away!!!!!

I thought the last day before we go back to school would have been a little better than rain:(( I got my beautiful Brianna her shoes and the rest of both kids supplies for tomorrow. This day came way too fast. Both are excited for school but I am not!!!!
Went for a run yesterday and had to cut it short, it was a rough one, average 9:58/mile. I only went 3.76 miles. What happened to my 8 flats???? Will I ever get back there? The last few years had been torture, oh well at least I'm still doing it and when I hit 40 I hope I can.(not very far away)

so tired.......

I feel like I have been on the go, go, go, go, go, for the last week I wish life would slow down and I am so sad to know that I consider myself no longer a SAHM(stay at home Mom) I have a job and I am a full time student. So nerve racking to start this Thursday. Tons of pressure on me and I'm so not ready for it, was as of how I feel now. I'm sure going to sleep good tonight, we had a yard sale this w/e and I had to work in the middle of it. Staying busy from 6:30am to 11:00pm gets pretty tiring. I did have help but still took a lot out of me. This is the last w/e I have before school starts I just want to relax and do nothing.......
