Good morning!<br>
I had a nice easy 4 this morning. Now I'm doing my weights and crunches.<br>
How is everybody this fine morning?

Hi guys!<br><br>
I did my 4 on the DM last night. Then I did a short arm workout. Today is a rest day. I'm going to try and get a walk in. I'm sooooooo tired. DD had me up a lot last night. I don't know what her problem was. She kept crying, but the only thing she said was "I don't want to paint it that color."<br><br>
Hi Suds!<br><br>
Heather ~ Nice workout! My ds has a 2 hour delay too. More snow - lovely. <img alt="rolleyes.gif" src=""><br><br>
Lee ~ Good luck getting your 8 done!<br><br>
Willa ~ Good morning!<br><br>
Hi Kitkat!!!!!!!!!
I think I will do it this week or next. I'm nervous b/c being sick kind of messed up my training. I didn't do an lsd this past week, but I'm sure I can still pull it back together! I definitely want to race with you guys! And I need to sign up for VT too!
I'm so excited about VRAA starting up again! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
Andi ~ I HOPE your foot gets better!!!!!!<br><br>
Hi Myron, Monika and Chosha!
CHosha ~ What a nice, fun mommy you are! My ds6 keeps asking to have 2 of his friends over for a sleepover, but I am so not ready for more than 1 extra child at a time!
Lee ~ I watched AI last night! That kid is AMAZING! He's such a cutie - I love that big smile! There was another guy that I liked that Randy, Paula, and SImon all trashed. I couldn't believe it! I thought the guy had a much better voice than a lot of the other contestants. I forget his name though!
CHosha ~ I bet a housefull of girls would be easier than boys! I'm scared of it b/c my ds's friends are so rambunctious!! They are cute and sweet though. It's much quieter when dd4's friends are over to play. They just play dressup for hours!
Isn't he amazing??? When he's just talking on camera, I can't help but think how YOUNG he seems for his age (or maybe I am just getting really old!), but man when he sings he is so CONFIDENT and mature! I can't wait to see more from him!
I forgot about the cattiness - dd isn't there yet!!
Marine ~ That's a good way to handle the birthday party issue. In the past we have had ds6's entire class for his birthday, but this year we are limiting him to a few close friends.<br><br>
Moni ~You are funny with your grocery shopping love. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""> I hate putting everything away. But I'm just lazy. Plus, once I get all the new food in the house I always want to try a little of everything. <img alt="rolleyes.gif" src=""><br><br>
TY ~ I was just trying to explain that very same thing to dh last night (about slacking). If I let myself take an extra rest day here or there for no reason except not wanting to run, it would make it so much easier to slack even more. Making myself run no matter what (except for illness and injury!) keeps me disciplined. I don't want to be an occasional runner, I want to run consistently, but that takes mental work!
I remember a bit into my knee injury I would get so sad if I drove on one of my running routes. And if I saw somebody running I couldn't take my eyes off them. So for me being injured makes me anxious to run again. But yes, it is hard to get going again once you've been out for awhile. I just want to be a regular runner forevah!!!!!!!!!!! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
Exactly! Most of the time I make running a priority, even though there are plenty of other things I could be doing during that time. It is sooooooo good for us in such a variety of ways - health, happiness, fulfillment, and on and on.<br><br>
Okay, gotta get the kiddo to school!<br><br>
Edited to add: Hearing all about your biking last summer made me motivated to ride mine more often!
Trying to catch up on shoutouts:<br><br>
Hi SB, Jeans, Batmomm, KyKy, JB....
<div style="text-align:center;">Oh, TY, I'm sorry - what a horrible experience! Here is a great, big, ginormous hug for you. <span><span style="font-size:300%;">((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))</span></span></div>
Oh, when I was a teenager - late teens - I slept over at my friend's house alot b/c her parents were very lenient and we could go out, party, and come home whenever we wanted. My mom would not stand for any of that. But, she wasn't stupid either and she and I battled for awhile over my partying ways!!
I am soooo glad to read that my dh and I are not the only parents who are cautious about sending their kids to friends' houses. I swear, people around here seem to have no problem with it! Whenever we invite a child over who has never been here before (and especially if we don't know the parents well!) I always make it clear that the parents are welcome to come too! They usually just drop the kid anyway, which shocks me when it's somebody that I've never met before. I'm the opposite. Whenever our kids go to a friend's, unless we are very good friends with the parents, I make sure to tag along too. I hate to make people feel like I don't trust them, but really I don't and when it's my children, I'll do what needs to be done to keep them safe. I find that many of the parents we know are very lax about safety issues that are a concern to us!<br><br>
In a nutshell, mostly we stick to doing the playdate thing with kids whose parents we know well, and so far my kids have only had their cousins over for a sleepover.

Lee ~ I hope it turns out to be nothing. Let us know, ok?
DD4 had her 4 yearold checkup today - a month too late <img alt="surprised.gif" src="">ops:. Everything is fine, but she did have 2 vaccinations. I felt so badly for her. With the flu shot she didn't even flinch, but today was a different story! The second shot was especially painful and she looked so surprised and started to cry. I felt awful b/c it was obvious she wasn't expecting it to hurt so much.
