The littles are home again, this time from an ice storm rather than a snow storm. I love how beautiful ice makes everything look, but it is really destructive. I swear I have spent a good portion of the winter outside trying to get snow and ice off the bending bushes in our backyard. I […]

Today is the last day to place an order and have it arrive in time for Christmas. The USPS website says that the last day to ship a priority mail package and have it arrive is this Saturday 12/21/13. I have however noticed that some of the packages that have already gone out are taking […]

Treadmill

Every December my motivation to train starts to dwindle….. The temperatures outside dip and the treadmill does not seem like a necessary evil just yet.
