Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Run For a Reason 5K
Today I ran in a 5K "race" in support of SUDC. It was a good time- running puts me in a good mood. I was by no means fast. This last week I tried running in the mornings before the kids woke up. Wednesday was great, Thursday I didn't feel good so I walked, and Friday I put my hand on the door to leave and Jessie starts crying. I pick her up and soothe her, while mentally cursing the fact I had a baby up at 5:45am. I then have a brilliant idea: I'll take her with me in the baby back pack. It won't be as good as running, but will still be good for habits and a bit for health. Just as I go to find her some warm clothes, Ed gets up and cheerily says, "Hi, Mom!" Well, now it's ruined. Not only do I not get the only time of day I have to myself, I also have two kids up way before they need to be. That's the pits. I'm going to try again this next week. I might need to train myself to wake up before the alarm goes off so no one hears me. One of the bad things about Trailer Life- you hear what everyone is doing at all times. There is no light that can't be seen, no noise that can't be heard. Oh well, I'll do the best with what I have.
