As I get older, or maybe it's just as I get wiser (ha) I realize how much I don't like committing to multiple things for a really long time. Obviously I'm committed to my marriage, that's kind of a big deal, and I'm committed to Jesus, grad school, and a lifetime of fitness. But pretty … Continue reading The year of no resolutions
So, I kinda sorta thought I would run the New Mexico Texas Challenge Half or Full.. I think it's gonna be the half. I ran a couple times this week, but as soon as I stepped off to run yesterday morning, my right knee was hurting. Not a 10 on the infamous "pain scale", but … Continue reading A mild setback
We are in the fifth week of the semester already. This week has been crazy! It's not that things I do are particularly challenging; it's that every couple hours I'm starting something different. I practically live in Liberal Arts building. But I love this program. This week I taught a class in preparation to teach … Continue reading Busy.
My presence on my blog has been scant recently. I come to my laptop tonight from my sewing table. I always seem to think better when I'm sewing... my mind is free and it wanders while my hands are still busy. I'm so fidgety, just like my grandpa. I doubt I'll be posting much over … Continue reading The year of big girl panties: a recap.
July 8th will be a year since we moved to El Paso. I can't believe everything that's transpired in a year.... We rented our first house. It still doesn't feel 100% like home. Maybe it's because the furniture doesn't match, or that the carpet is an awful poop brown color. Maybe we're just still settling … Continue reading Almost a year
I'm thankful that today, the day after a fantastic weekend, was not a let-down like so many days after holiday weekends are. We had a FABULOUS weekend! For starters, we've been watching the first season of "Once Upon a Time", a show based on all the fairy tales we learned as children. I admit, I … Continue reading Fairy tales and four-days
You think I'm joking?? This was our project for today. A would "ride" the "horse" (aka wagon + cooler + saddle he was NOT supposed to be using for this), H would be the steer, and I got to drive the "tractor". Except I've never driven a tractor, unless you count me steering the little … Continue reading Ropin’ steers
I like to keep my cowgirl adventures separate from the rest of my blog... it's just more fun that way. This week was pretty uneventful, as I had the kids on Monday but we didn't get to do much. I forgot to tell y'all (seeeeee that?? y'all) that I met A's other two pigs. Remember Gibbs? … Continue reading Pink and silver cowboy hats
I have to say... I quite content right now as a stay-at-home wife/nanny/tutor/seamstress/entrepreneur????/short-term missionary/volunteer "Sunday school" teacher/dog trainer... I think some of the best jobs are ones whose titles you really can't pinpoint to a couple words. Even with Husband Man being gone for almost three weeks (he comes home in two days, wheeeee!!) I've … Continue reading A challenge for every day of the week
Seriously. I think I need to start a new blog just about the things that happen while I babysit. Yesterday on our way back to the house from school, we stopped by Grandma and Grandpa's to wet down the pig. 1) They have a pig. 2) They have to wet it down??? Okay. So. Anyway. … Continue reading Tales from the farm
