Oh My….

I don't know what I was thinking taking five classes this semester. I have been so busy, it's insane. I have three papers due next week and so I decided to get out of town for a couple days this weekend! I tend to work better under pressure anyways, so what the heck.

I definitely think I am going to take a break this summer with only two classes. We shall see.

On another note. I am obsessed with this website. I have been begging for tools and to clear the garage out so I can begin my new business. Not really. But I do have dreams that I am going at it with a hammer and nails and building stuff like this for my house!

That shows you how much I know about building things. I suppose it would be more like a drill and screws.

My late Grandmother's crock. Marcus broke the lid the day after I took this picture. 
I cannot tell you how many times I have passed this by in the grocery store. I can honestly say it is not because of the Weight Watchers, but because of the three temporary crowns I have in my  mouth. One I just take out when I eat because it keeps falling out and my appt. isn't until Thursday. I am so done with all my teeth problems. 
Made a yummy side with my soup for lunch. No green because only the red, orange, and yellow peppers were on sale! HA!

What are you doing?

This morning was so cold. It was 36 degrees. I know some of you are laughing at me right now. "HA HA, only 36 degrees? You are lucky." I know some of you are thinking that, Jen on the Edge!

While I am not sure what the wind chill was, it was very windy and of course, that made it feel a lot colder.

We had an eight mile run with our Team in Training group. I can honestly say I would not have run eight miles, outside, this morning without this group. They keep me accountable and keep the encouragement coming.

I had a great time. I know while I am running, I am thinking how bad it sucks, and I just want it to be over. But, I love the feeling of what I've accomplished after I am done and get back to my car! I am starting to feel it is almost sinful to not take care of my body when I am totally capable of doing so. I am not saying everybody has to run. I am saying I hope you are all doing something to exercise your body.

I was reminded a couple of months ago, after several months of treatments for my voice, that if you don't use  something God gives you, He may take it away.

I certainly don't want to take for granted the things my body is capable of accomplishing.

In my future I see a mini-triathalon. What do you see in your future to stretch your mind and body?

PS> Kellie (sis) and Aunna (SIL), having a baby counts too. I guess.
