Getting ready for NYE!

I just came back from the grocery store. Always fun (and more expensive) to shop with both kids. We bought a lot of not so healthy treats for our weekend of New Years fun! We'll be making smores & mountain pies on the fire! YUMMMMM! We are all looking forward to ringing in the New Year with friends at a great party!!

It's been really cold and windy, so I've been riding the stationary bike at home. I'm missing getting out to get my runs in. Riding the bike is just not the same...I miss the fresh air and rhythmic pounding of my shoes on the pavement. Plus, I take that dreaded blackberry with me on the stationary bike (my fault, I know). Running is my one total escape from the constant buzz of email!

Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2009 everyone!

Cleaning up from Christmas

My in-laws had the kids yesterday, so DH and I took down the tree, returned some gifts, and shopped some of the great sales. We also got to see Invictus. It was an awesome movie (But, isn't any movie with Morgan Freeman?)

This morning I ran a 5K...had to take advantage of this gorgeous weather! It was a great run and it felt good to get off the treadmill!

DD loves the new blog and wants to create her own. She's only 8, so I don't quite want her blogging yet. Her favorite gift was her Nintendo DS and my son loved his Bakugans.

Hope everyone's holiday was Merry!

Finding it hard to run in Winter

Yesterday, I went out for a run. I got dressed in my cold weather running gear and hit the road. The wind was so strong I felt like it was pushing me backwards at times. I did a pathetic mile and made the quickest turn I could to get back home.

Today, I opted for the treadmill. I HATE running on treadmills. It is so boring and I have a hard time staying straight. Ridiculous, I know...but I always end up on the sides of the belt. I did get 4 miles in today so I should be good to indulge a bit tomorrow!

I've hit the green level on Nike+! WOO HOO! I will be stuck at this level for a while now...I think you need to get to 650 miles to reach the next level.

Merry Christmas to all!

All Ready?

Wow....that holiday season sure flew by. Christmas is here...are you ready? We are! I'm hosting Christmas this year and looking forward to an enjoyable day. We're back to the tradition of turkey at our house. It just won't be the same though without my Dad.

Take time this holiday season to remember lost loved ones and rejoice in the memories you shared while they touched your lives.

Raising a cup of coffee to you Dad....thanks for being an awesome Dad!! I am so appreciative of all the time you gave up to take care of your grandkids and to help make both of our houses great. I miss you so much.

Business Plan Update

I'm in the final stages of my business plan. It's in my sister's capable hands for editing. I hope to have it to a lawyer during the holiday break and will start aggressively marketing to companies in Jan 2010.

Wish me luck!
