Marathon Madness!!!!!

February 27, 2008

One week from today I leave for the Moab 1/2 Marathon.....WHAT WAS I THINKING????!!!! I ran 10 miles last week on the wonderful hills of Mata Ortiz and actually felt pretty great. But I do have to admit that the closer it gets to the actual event the more anxiety I feel. Kelly says that I am already commited and can do nothing about it sooooooooooooo settle in. Easy for him to say don't ya think! One of the friends I am running with came up with the best phrase for our husbands/bystanders to wear on their t-shirts while we are running..."I am living my dream through my wife" Pretty good huh?! With the exception of some sore knees I am sure I will survive. The book Marathoning for Mortals has been a great guide for training, don't think I could have done it without the book!

How Do I Love Thee???

Okay...yes, I do realize that Valentines Day has passed, but I am still in the moment! Daily I have little reminders (sometimes big ones!) of how very blessed I am to be married to Kell. What a great husband, great father, and most of all great friend. A day doesn't pass that we don't laugh (sometimes to avoid insanity) but sometimes just because! I love that man! Thanks for loving me for me and making life an adventure! I love you Kell!

I just read a quote that I really thought was great "Courage is being scared to death, and saddling up anyway." By John Wayne. The kids got horses for Christmas and we have all been enjoying them. Grandpa Skinner has helped the kids learn to care for the horses and has even ridden a few times with Jordan. These horses have become dear members of our family!

What have you done with our son???

Well the high school here is a church school and therefore the dances are treated as chruch dances and if you are 14 you an attend. Last night was the Jr. Prom and Jordan decided that he wanted to go with a group of friends and cousins. The group ended up being 4 boys and one darling girl (who is like a sister to Jordan.) They got all decked out for a night on the town. They went and had a "fancy" dinner and then to the dance. Another great thing about the school...the parents go the the big dances too! mostly to watch their kids. So you know that Kelly and I couldn't pass this one up! We drove to the school (in the snow) and really enjoyed watching Jordan have such a great time with his friends. It was a wonderful evening but a huge reminder that time is passing too fast, and the kids are really growing up. Oh....Victoria even told Jordan that he looked hot! That in alone was worth the price of the tux!!!
