Friday Adventures

I overslept this morning. And when I woke up, Lil Man's diaper had leaked. And I don't mean just a little dribble. I mean a full on, soaked his clothes from knees to chest, all of his blankets, his sheet,and his protective mattress cover. So I began my day with already running late, plus having to strip him off and change everything on the bed.

That being done, I'm was at this point 15 minutes later than what I should be. (Hubby was giving me time to run before he went to work. Thankfully, it still worked out that that I could get my run in).

I got home just in time as Hubby was getting ready to walk out the door. But I just wasn't in the mood to stay home all day. We had to cancel a playdate earlier in the week because Lil Man was sick. And it seems like lately when I have plans I have to cancel or reschedule or something. And I'm feeling just a wee bit lonely. I knew that if I sat in this house all day that I would be stir crazy. So I told Lil Man that we were going shopping and out to lunch. He seemed pleased with that idea.

So Lil Man and I went to Target. :) Then we headed over to Five Guys. Lil Man thought it was 'too loud'. And I will admit the music was a tad bit on the loud side. And he wasn't a fan of the peanuts. But when he saw the fries, and the abundance of them, his eyes lit up. And he dug in. He alone ate a little over half of a large container. And if you've ever been there, you know how many fries I'm talking about. In addition to the fries, he ate half his cheeseburger. He followed all of that with an M&M candy bar in the car for dessert on the way home.

Is he my kid or what? :) He's currently sleeping it off, while I take a few minutes to recharge for the rest of the afternoon.

Hubby and I are so truly blessed. I have to keep reminding myself to slow down, cherish the moments, in the blink of an eye they will be gone. I'm glad that I took today and took some time to just be in the present moment.


  1. I believe we should really enjoy our kids now because it won't be long they'll be teens and then grown ups. Time flies so fast.

  2. These are the times when you just feel like screaming your head off :)

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

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


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
