Timing....all about Timing

Blogging after midnight......probably a bad idea.....I mean, really, shouldn't all good Mommies be in bed? Not this Mommy......I have a horrible habit of staying up later and enjoying my alone time....totally not what I was going to bang out on my keyboard when I logged in.....


A few milestones have come and gone this summer:

~Oldest son turned 13  **sniff sniff** I look at him, and I just can't wrap my head around it. He was a baby a second ago, I swear. I know, most Moms feel like this at some point, so at least I'm in good company.

~Youngest son turned 9....not yet 13, but, inching closer.

~ the 3 year anniversary of us moving here has come and gone. It's feeling like a real home, and that's a good feeling. Even more exciting for me personally....I HAVE LIVED IN THIS ONE HOUSE FOR OVER 3 YEARS!  It's the longest I've resided in one home in my adult life.

~In a few short days, we will mark the 3rd anniversary of the loss of a friend....my friend's husband, father of her girls. He died in Afghanistan, and he is missed

~ I have started C25K again....in fact, tomorrow is Day 2 of Week 4. I've never made it past this point. The difference this time is that I am doing it with a fantastic buddy, and we' registered to run our first race (4K) on September 10th! (Very exciting).

Time has marched along, sometimes so slowly I could have screamed in frustration, sometime so quickly things are a blur.

However, at this moment, I think we're heading in the right direction.
