Call me grace

I've been so proud of myself b/c we've been training for a 5K in February, and I've been running a good bit. Last week I decided to be super committed and get up before Kevin left for work to go for a run. So at 6:30 I headed out in the dark to run a couple of miles. It was dang cold outside so I was running faster than normal and decided to run right in front of Parkview High School because i knew there would be a long line of teenagers that would motivate me to keep running. So there I was running along at a great pace when the sidewalk jumped up and grabbed my foot forcing me to fall and not only make a total fool of myself, but twist my ankle in the process. Please realize that its about 7am at this point and every high schooler is sitting in their car watching the whole thing unfold. When I realized that there was no hole for me to crawl in and die, i picked myself up and proceeded to limp back home. To add insult to injury, I had three high school students pass me walking to school b/c i was going so slow. Needless to say, I haven't made it back out for the early am run.

I put Mason down to bed tonight which is rare b/c i usually deal with Kendall while Kev puts him to bed. After a day like today, he knew better than to leave me alone for one more minute with her. Anyway, I asked Mason if he wanted to say his prayers and he said no, so I went into a most likely useless discussion with him about how we need to take time out to talk to God even if we dont feel like it sometimes. So then i told him to say his prayers and this is what i got.. "Dear Heavenly Fodder, thank you for nuftin that i like and nuftin that i dont like. The End. In Jesus name I pray, Amen."

well i officially have a 3 year old and he is officially a pirate. his papa has taught him pirate language so I am called an "old landlubber" or told to walk the plank at least once a day. so i decided we would do a pirate themed bday. poor mason quite possibly has the worst birthday date on earth... Dec 26th. Its the last day of the entire year that anyone feels like buying gifts or doing anything remotely close to partying. To make things worse, i was making calls the morning of his birthday to warn everyone that Mason was running a fever. Last year we made the same call about a stomach virus- what is it with sick bdays? anyway, the party was fun, he got way more than he needed and he got to dress like a pirate. is it bad that i am so glad the holidays are over?? Packing, moving, unpacking, Christmas, Mason's Bday, New Years, my birthday all smooshed into 4 weeks-- not as fun as it sounds. Now if i could just get Kendall feeling better and figure out where my pajama pants are hidden I'll be great.  Posted by Picasa
