I'm still alive!

Whew, life has been so busy, but I love it!  I've felt at a loss for topics to write about lately, this blog is really my journal and a place for me to vent, explore emotions and release....but with all the running (more like jogging) I've been doing I've been able to explore emotions and release while getting my sweat on, so I've been a bit MIA here, sorry.

Things are good, it's very Spring in MT....which doesn't mean a ton yet, it's a little chilly and we've had some rain but Summer is a coming, things are starting to green up!  Liam and I are itching to start hiking (I scored a framed pack to wear Liam in and already used it once!).  I day dream of taking the day off work to take Liam to a local water park (more like park with water feature, same diff).

Liam is amazing, he now has two teeth (bottom center), scoots, loves his Johnny Jump Up and the dog more each day.  He can say Mom-mom and Dadda but mostly uses Da-da-da when not babbling in general.  He eats anything you put in front of him food wise, except carrots....he hates carrots.  He loves feeding himself! One of the meals I often make for him is pureed turkey breast with whole wheat spiral noodles with a little basic marinara and a veggie (butternut squash is his fav), he loves to feed himself the noodles.  He's also a pro with his sippy cup.  I think he's right on the verge of crawling and waving.  Where has time gone?!?!?

My heath is good, another month until my next scheduled appt with  Dr T and I'm feeling good.  Some days I worry and over think this whole crazy thing so I'm learning to just breath and use critical thinking skills to handle the hard moments.  The hardest times are when I start to think long term/big picture since my autoimmune disease is pretty unpredictable, while all of our futures are uncertain to some extent, mine is more so...this is no bueno for the planner in me....but I'll get there.  One day at a time.

V and I are fine, we've hit a bit of a rough patch as all marriages do.  Hmmm... since I'm writing from work I think that is all I'll say about that.

Work is great, all three of us are training for the marathon in July (including the new girl, who is amazing)...this has helped the over all attitude of our office.  There is a lot to be said about exercise increasing happiness.  Work is also busy which makes the days go buy, that coupled with the raises I've gotten in the last year make it all worth while.

The only other thing bouncing around my mind today is my 10 year reunion is coming up.  I didn't have the most enjoyable childhood, to say the least....I'm uncertain if I'll attend any of the events.  It doesn't help that the reunion it's self is the day before the marathon (minimum of two hours away).  I'll probably decide at the last minute if I'll attend.

So there you have it, all the goings on of my little world.  I hope each of you are well, including all the preggos out there!  Summer is going to be amazing and by the end there will be LOTS of new babies in our lives!

March 16, 2012's still Spring

Somewhere in the back of my mind I was trying to will it to be full blown summer, day dreams of warm evening walks and cook-outs ran wild.....then I checked the forecast, back to reality, Spring it is. Fair enough, at least it's no longer winter.  After taking a second look there is only one day with a forecast of snow and everyday is predicted to be above freezing (during the day), I'll take it!

Much Love,

I'm becoming a Runner {Bucket List}

Hey Peeps,
Just sneaking on my work computer so you all don't think I've died!  Shhhh don't tell the bosslady!  My computer should be repaired in a few more days, husband is no longer allowed to touch!

So, little known fact: running a marathon has been on my bucket list for a while.  Last year I watched bosslady train and accomplish checking it off her bucket list, it was incredible to see her transformation!  Considering I just (9 months ago) had a baby I feel like I'm in great shape so I figured, Why not this summer?  There are various 5k, 10k, 1/2 marathons and marathons in my area....I could surely accomplish this, right?  Well at least I could try!

On Saturday we had glorious weather, it was the perfect weather to be outside!  Sunday it got chilly but I tried my hardest, Monday I did cross training and last night I went "running" again.  I won't lie to you, it's hard and I'm not doing at well as I would like but I've had asthma for 20 years and it's cold out, I'm doing my best!  Husband has been pretty supportive, with the daylight savings change Liam is asleep before it's dark out so I pretty much hit the pavement immediately after Liam is asleep.  So far I've been able to make the time to train.  I know it's going to get more difficult fitting it in ~5 times a week, especially as the mileage increases and it takes me longer....but I so look forward to it!  Even though it's hard, it's cold and I've already put in a long day at work's just the little "me" time I need, and the sense of accomplishment (not to mention the endorphins!) just feels so great, even when I can't run as far as I want.  I caught myself actually bummed that I have a rest day on Friday (yes rest is necessary!)...and that made me smile, that while I am still in the beginning stages I already look forward to my runs....I'm becoming a runner, something I've always wanted to be!
As always, Thanks Google Images

So just a fun little story for you all on a Wednesday afternoon.  Hopefully I'll be back on my own computer soon.....

Much Love,

RIP Computer

Hey Peeps,
Just a quick message from work, my darling husband fried my computer earlier this week so you won't be hearing much from me for a week or so until I can wrap my head around either repairing or replacing it....oy.
Happy Friday,
