My Favorite Quote-   "When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." -Harriet Beecher Stowe

I started running in May of 2006 while losing 85 lbs after my youngest was born.  I have 6 fantastic kids, 3 girls and 3 boys and a wonderful husband.  My oldest is in college and my baby is in pre-school. (Six kids in 5 schools ;)

early run.  Dr appt for anna.  Dr appt for me.  Lunch with mom for her birthday....but one of the cars died yesterday so I'm not sure I can make it, or any of it :p  Swim party tonight.  MUST try to get the spare car registered today so I can drive that one.  DAvid has been driving my car because it is an automatic.  TOO MUCH TO DO!  Oh, I have to clean the whole house.  We just moved all of the furniture but not all the little "crapola" that lives in each room ;)

fun run with Jennie :)  MUGGY and actually HOT at 6am :p 

Report.... Anna's Doc appt went well.  Got her prescription called into pharmacy near campus :(

My doc does not think the lumps in my breasts are a problem but will let the mamogram confim his.  He actually thinks they may be caused by my bras....

Cars STINK!  I bawled no less than three times over the cars yesterday.  One time infront of the owner of the garages son.  They did not charge me labor :)  I have never lost it before like that, but hey, car crap is David's job and I am at my wits end with managing the household on my own.  Turns out I can fake "holding it together" for about 2.5 months than WHAMIE...I turn into a heap of hysteria.

I have taken a few weeks off of work and I am really glad.  We had two weeks planed for vacation this summer, but with David's fall we had to cancel it all :(  I suppose that I could have managed work these past two weeks, but with everything going on, I am glad I took it off.  We have been able to do a few mini family trips around and that is nice.  I REALLY miss work, but taking some time off is as close to a vacation as I am getting this year.  My house is actually looking sort of clean... (that's a really LOSE definition of clean)

Sorry about the spelliing... Burt, could you please spell check for me.  Off to do more chores to get ready to Anna's good bye party this evening :)....... :p .........or better yet....
