Happy Hump Day

Life sure does get busy fast, doesn't it! First and foremost I'm a wife but secondly I'm a mama to four kids, all of whom are teens, whew! One (my oldest son G) lives on his own and works full time at our family owned big convenience store and is learning to run the place! The other 3 live at home and keep me pretty busy!

Thirdly, I volunteer Mon-Thur every week at our small family owned convenience store.  I make burritos, tacos, nachos and handmade sandwiches for the HS kids that come in for lunch.  With all that going on I still have to find time to fit in my runs or workouts...clean, fix dinner and grocery shop etc...I'm tired just thinking about all I need to do this week.  

I said that to say this...I just find that I don't have a lot of time to blog every day let alone once a week and I hope that I have not lost any blogging friends because of it. I do read your blogs and try to comment when I have some time, and I do truly think y'all are the best. I honestly want to blog but just find that maybe once a week is better for me than every other day, at least right now.  Summer is here in a few days and the kids will be home every day, Oy Vey...and I will be even busier! I'm not going away, I just wanted to let you know I'm here, alive...just busy. I'm not leaving or quitting the blog, I'm just not going to be on as much as I was a month or so ago. 

Y'all are the best and I thank you for your friendship and support, keep coming around, I get all your comments in my email and when I open it up, I always get a big smile to see that you came by.

Okay now for what I've done in the exercise department lately...

  • Rest Day
  • Cleaning my friends 2 story house for 2+ hours
  • 94 minutes of running 8.1 miles
  • AMT 30 minutes
  • Gardening 45 minutes
  • 49 minutes of running 4 miles slowly
  • Rest Day

I will be going to the gym today but I'm gonna take a few days off from running on the road...I'm feeling a bit of soreness where I broke my pelvis and want to see if a few day rest will make the pain disappear. It only hurts a little when I press on the sit bone so I'm only taking precautions just in case.  It doesn't hurt to stand, jump on one leg, or run..but having broke it before I'm not gonna take any chances.

Have a great week y'all, blessings and hugs.

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.

  1. I'm tired after reading all of that! 4 teens. WOW.. I have just 1 and all my hair is turning completely grey!

  2. Does it scare you how much a teenager can eat?
    If you can't blog every day, that's cool. I don't every day because I know I couldn't keep up.

  3. WoW...I wish I could run as much as you have :)
    Keep up the good work mom...those teens won't be around for too long...they grow up...and you will still not have time! I don't!


I'm so happy you stopped by...can't wait to hear all you've got to say! Blessings and hugs!
