8 years ago today I married the love of my life. I was 22, young and silly and I had no idea how much work a marriage was. We both admitted that we thought about running away that morning. I could hardly plan out the next week of life let alone forever. And with divorce rates so high I’m sure a lot of people who knew us expected that.
I’m not sure how we made it, and I’m not sure what advice to give couples that ask us “how!” All i know is in a marriage there are really amazing times and really hard times – and sometimes it feels like the hard times are forever and will never end. But they always do. When i look at a mental timeline of our life; Continue reading “Happy anniversary to us!”→
One thing i started noticing as soon as the stay at home orders started was that we go through a TON of trash. I try to consider myself pretty conscious of waste and we do cloth diaper, but we were still getting like a bag of trash A DAY!
So I was so happy when Aunt K reached out to share some of her reusable items with me! Here’s what I got in my care package:
When we moved in this house it was really beige. I always knew we would paint, but I was working full time and LB was a baby and I was adjusting to a whole new state. Life was hectic. And we never got around to painting.
So right before covid-19 close the gym we had someone give us an estimate to paint. But then we were suddenly unemployed and unsure so we decided to wait. But anxiety and boredum don’t go well, so we bought the paint and did it ourselves!
Well, I have a lot of thoughts about the state of the world but some of them are heavy. I don’t want to be heavy now, I want to be lighthearted. So if you’re home with bored young kids, here’s some fun educational activities you can do!
I didn’t write a MLK day post yesterday. It’s a hard day for me – because it’s one of those days when it is SO in your face that black men are very seldom heroes to anyone but us until they’re murdered.
haha, not really – but we did hop on a flight for a trip last week.
It’s cold in Kentucky, and the days are short, and I spend most of my time inside. My mood has been up and down since having Viv and lately, I’ve felt really overwhelmed. It seems like anytime I’m doing something to help Viv, LB feels neglected or needs my undivided attention and vise versa. Continue reading “We got flewed out.”→
I did it. I ran my race. That’s why I’ve been spotty with blogging and posting, and a big part of the reason I wasn’t coaching the past few months.
First I want to go over the race weekend, then how it differed from last year, then how I trained.
Soooo race weekend. The race this year was on 11/3, and 11/4 is LB’s birthday. (Last year race day WAS his birthday). So the day before the race he had a birthday party. That meant I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off the week prior and stressing that he had a good time. The party was a success saturday morning, and after going home to pack we started off to Huntington WV.
Logistically, I booked 2 hotel rooms in Huntington side by side so my parents could stay nextdoor. They kept the kids while we raced. We hit the hotel when we got into town and my parents and sister watched the kids while we went to pick up our race bibs.
