James and I are still plugging along!!

A little about James and I...James is going to start school again next week. The IRS is paying for him to take some classes, so that is what he will be doing, and working JUST ONE JOB!!! hip hooray to that!!! It has been so nice having him home more. We get to spend all morning and afternoon with him and then he goes to work at about 3:30. He is such a great husband and dad. I am so grateful for him.He's been doing a lot around the house, working hard in our yard, planting a garden, some beautiful trees and putting up a wooden fence in the front of our yard! It's so beautiful. He is a talented man.

I am keeping busy being a mommy. We also babysit two sisters (8 and 5 years old) they are good girls and it makes it nice to have some extra money. I am actually training to run a half marathon!!! I know...CRAZY!!! The marathon is in August.(13 miles) I ran 8.5 miles the other day with Tara, who is also running the half marathon for the second year in a row. It is crazy hard, but I am loving it and I love the feeling I get when I am done running. (besdies the throbbing of my shin-splints and burning thighs...) It has been a personal journey for me and I have done a lot of growing and strengthening (literally) in the process. I LOVE being a mom, LOVE being a wife, and I love all of you who took the time to read my blog!

when james told me about you running a half marathon, I said wow! I thought "how is she going to have the time to train for that with all the kids?" I know the saying where there's a will there's a way... I guess with James working only at the IRS makes it easier.
It's a lot easier to go long distances when running with somebody else, unless you get to a point where you can't stand the person you're with. Only time I ran that far was some 10 years ago when this girl asked if I wanted to go running. I had been running maybe up to 5 miles before that. Then I just jumped up to 13 miles... I never had been so're right it feels great too. Weird...
