I had signed up for my second ever 5-K about a month ago...BEFORE we had received #1 and #2's soccer game schedule. #1's first game: 9:00 a.m., 5-K start time: 9:30 a.m., #2's first game: 11:00 a.m. How the crap was I going to pull this one off? Well, I probably shouldn't have gone to the 5-K, but it was already paid for and I'm too
We woke up Saturday morning to...RAIN...again with the rain. So I thought the soccer games would be cancelled and I wouldn't have to deal with the
Me: OK, let me just go in and grab my pants, and I'll follow you there and watch for a while. (I didn't know where the park was-we have a ton in our town and I don't know the names of them all)....I run in, run back out...they left WITHOUT ME!!!!!!
Me: FURIOUS and mumbling some not-very-nice things under my breath at my husband who had ditched me.
Phone rings: (It's hubby): Just go to your run...Jake's fine.
Me: AAARRRGGGHHH!!! hung up on him, after I think I told him to shut-up or something equally mature.

On to #2's soccer game,(no I didn't have time to shower, and probably looked a bit frightening). It was freezing cold and very wet. Is it wrong I was counting down the minutes until the game was over and I could warm up? And then she scored a goal!! THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE (by me anyway).
Onto our next adventure...a surprise 40th birthday party for my older
|No, her cake isn't on fire, but that's A LOT of candles!|
And finally, Mondays. There are exactly 4 more school Mondays left until summer vacation. Yes, I'm counting down...apparently my kids turn into monsters on Monday mornings. I won't go into details, just know this: there was crying, there was screaming(not by me, I had to bite my tongue), there was candy-begging and there was wrestling. I. CAN"T. WAIT. FOR. SUMMER VACATION.!!!!!!!!
