I had an enjoyable day yesterday with HG. We went to West Virginia to drop off our wedding rings to get them sized. I knew that I would miss not having my ring. What I didn’t realize was HOW much I would miss not wearing my engagement/wedding rings. But I had fun yesterday.

We went and dropped our rings off, and I picked out a birthstone ring that I liked. (HG partially contributed to the cost…. part of my birthday present) HG let me bypass Waffle house, and we ate at Hardees for breakfast, hot dogs (my fav) for lunch and Cracker Barrel for supper. We spent about 8 hours on the road in the car. It was fun.

I have to say that HG went out of his way yesterday to be thoughtful. We laughed most of the day. We also compromised on a headboard…. NO Texas stars (woo hoo).

This weekend has zoomed by. Today I’m washing clothes and trying to get things prepared for next week. I cooked HG a pumpkin pie after cooking breakfast. Supper tonight will be leftovers though. I have a very busy week ahead of me, and I want to get some ‘down time’ in today. So after getting clothes into wash, and HG’s pie in the oven, I’ve been playing around on my laptop while HG reads the paper and Tula snoozes on my feet. Shorty and Sally are snuggling in their outside kennels.

It’s a gloomy day here, but I don’t mind since I’m inside and didn’t really have any plans to run today. I’m not sure how I’ll get my runs in this week because I have so much going on. But hopefully I’ll be able to find some time to get some runs in.

Well clothes are ready to be switched around… guess I’d better get to it…

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss
