C25K Update

I took a 2 week break from my Couch to 5k program, but I'm back on track! Since I was lazy for so long, I'm going to do a couple days of Week 2 before moving on to Week 3. I was a little nervous about how I would feel after not running for so long, but it felt great! I'm excited to run today.

My new shoes still rock.

I think the stickers are getting meaner.

Not excited about running when it gets cold. I hate the burning lungs feeling.

I apologize for my absence (I've always hated that word. I wrote so in my 4th grade journal after missing it on a spelling test). (I had to spell check it and spelled it wrong. Sigh..)

This past week has been fun and busy. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law came into town for my other sister-in-law's baby shower (is that confusing enough?). There was a lot of shopping, eating, playing, and talking involved. I had a great time and so did my little boy.

We had to put our cat, Myrtle, down. She was acting weird and not eating so we took her to the vet. $600 later we learned nothing and couldn't afford anymore. We had her for four years. She was anti-social but loved to sit on your lap while you were going to the bathroom. Our other cat, Princess, misses her and so do we, but I'm glad she isn't suffering anymore.

Then Jon had to go to Omaha for work so Nate and I went to my parents' for a few days. Nate LOVES his Bumpa (and Grammy Pie). I love that they are such great friends. Nate is Bumpa's little farmer. He loves the moos, the red car, the toys, the choo-choo that goes by their house.

Now Jon is on his way home from Texas after a La Rue gun show with his uncle. Nate is asleep after waking up late and not taking a nap. Princess is sitting on my lap, giving herself a bath. I'm so excited to FINALLY have a desktop with Internet after two years of mostly just using a Blackberry and laptop.

I promise to write more often.

There is two of us....

Do you remember Homestar Runner? What? You mean to tell me you didn't spend the majority of your college years staying up for hours with your roommate watching online videos, writing on Xanga, and playing Sims (probably at the same time)? You actually studied? And had a regular sleeping pattern? What's wrong with you....

Anyway, this is the best Strong Bad email ever. I had all but forgotten old Homestar and Strong Bad until I was thinking of a title for my entry and all that came to mind was "Come back Ali...Come back Ali's seeester..." Which has NOTHING to do with what my topic.

The more I blog, the more I'm pretty sure the only people who will be interested in reading anything I have to say are my college roommates. Which is good, because they think I'm cool.

On to the real reason I'm here...


I entered a giveaway over at Loralee's Looney Tunes Review. AND WON! I get a six month supply of soy milk and $100! And all I had to do was tell the blogging world how I'm a not so super mom.

While taking the trash out, I locked myself out of my house and my 2 year old son in the garage. Alone. I had no keys, no phone, and didn't know my neighbors. I finally had to go introduce myself. "Hi. We just moved in next door. Can I use your phone? My son is locked inside." Of course they were in a hurry and my husband didn't answer. After 30 mins of calling my son through the door to make sure he was okay, the neighbors came back with my husband on the phone.

My son was fine and my husband was laughing in hysterics. Mom of the year, I know.

I enter a lot of giveaways on blogs and this is the second (and biggest) prize I've won. The first was an
awesome coffee cozy at Moments with Love. I LOVE GIVEAWAYS!

Do you enter giveaways? Have you won?
