Just a few days away...

Thanksgiving is just a few days away. A day of giving thanks for all that the Lord has blessed us with this year. I haven't said anything here but I suppose I should...I signed up for a 2 mile race that day. I am rather nervous yet excited. My family is proud of me and will be waiting for me at the end with camera in hand. The weather report, however, is not looking too friendly. It is saying low 40's with possible flurries. I am praying that the weather forecasters are wrong.

School is going okay. Doing great in my Sociology class but struggling with the advanced A&P. Semester is almost over and I am very happy about that.

I hope you all are doing well and that the Lord has blessed you with good health.

Busy, busy, busy!

Busy is the word of the day. I haven't updated because I have been busy as a bee.

Running 1 mile now...yay me! I have a new goal of running a 5k this spring with a friend of mine. Never thought running would become addictive for me, but it has. I am thoroughly enjoying it. I just wish the weather would cooperate more. It has not been the fall I am used to. Rain and chilly make for a skip from Summer (which I am still waiting for) and straight to the beginning of Winter. Where did fall go? The leaves are supposed to crunch beneath my feet when I run, not be soggy and floppy.

Week 1 finished!

I finished week one of my running regime. It got easier but now I have come down with a bug of some sort and my lungs are feeling weird. Tomorrow I start week two and I am optimistic.

Day 1

So I have decided to take up running. I tried it once before but let my ambitious self get ahead of my body and my knees let me know it. So in an effort to get myself down to a healthy weight I am trying again. This time with the help of my mp3 player and a download I got from Amazon. The download was cheap and is exactly what I wanted. I don't want to be constantly checking a watch, pedometer or whatever to see when to walk or run. So this is perfect. Some guy is telling me when to start and stop and the running doesn't seem as long as when I did it myself (but I know it is).

So Day far so good. I think I can handle this 3 days a week as suggested. It says by the end of week 4 I will be able to run 1 mile. One mile?! That seems so far right now but someday that will seem easy. I'm all set. I am ready. Now I will just wait to tell my hubby that I am really running instead of walking (I usually walk 6 miles about 3x a week). I want to surprise him with my accomplishment.

Other than that I would say life in general is also good. I started my fall semester last week. I am taking Advanced A&P as well as Sociology. I think my Soc class will be a hoot! My A&P will be a bit more time consuming and require a bit more mind power. I can do it! I have a friend in class with me and I am sure we can help each other with our strengths and weakness in this course.

Well I have to run (not literally) so I will see you all next post! Have a great day!

Time flies by...

Oh boy have I neglected this. April? Are you kidding me?! Okay this means I must catch up on all the stuff that has happened since my last post. Here goes...

My professor graded my paper (finally) and I received an A! My final grades for the semester were a B in Anatomy and a B in Developmental Psych. I am pleased. Next semester is going to be Advanced Anatomy and Sociology. I will once again strive for A's.

I made an attempt to go to church. Again it was the preplanned series thing. Where's the fire? Where is the conviction? Where is the being led by the Spirit? Don't get me wrong. This is not a "dead" church. There is speaking in tongues w/translations which shows me the Spirit is there. But why be so scripted in your sermons? Why let man dictate what is said instead of God?

Since I am not taking classes this Summer I have been spending a lot of time with the kids and doing some yardwork. Now the most yardwork I have done in years is walk through it. Now I have taken on the task of mowing, watering, fertilizing and all that fun stuff. I have also planted some ornamental grasses alongside the house. There is more planned for me to plant. Hubby has some ideas of other things that could be planted. I also dug 4 tree rings and mulched them.

That is all for the moment. I need to get back to housekeeping.
