I don’t know why, but I just am not thinking to come here and write. Well, I do know why:
- vacation- went south for a week and enjoyed a bit of time away from the daily to-do
- homeschool- for every day of school the girls do, I have at least one hours worth of administrative time that is related to that
- house- it still isn’t a self-cleaning model…dang economy
- food- still cooking, fermenting, canning, and freezing
- family- we are blessed to have a big family that is mostly local…but it takes up a bit of time being close to all these lovely folks
- campaigning- my husband is running for city council and our budget is beyond slim…so we are sticking to what resources are free and that is pretty much just our time
- sprots- we are in those 2 weeks where soccer and swim overlap so Mon./Wed. we head to the field and Tues./Thur. we head to the pool. Last Soccer game is next week, first swim meet is the following Sat. I love that my girls are active…it keeps me active.
- everything else- church, yardwork, the poor dog (she acts neglected most days), my working a shift here and there, and on and on it goes
It’s no wonder I am exhausted by the time my head hits the pillow and it’s no wonder that there are no posts on this blog as of late.
Just to prove I am still cooking and so everyone can chuckle at my mistakes:
I made a pumpkin dish the other day that involved pumpkin puree, eggs, spices, pecans, and a maple syrup glaze! After it was in the oven for about 15 minutes I finally saw the little bowl with two beaten eggs sitting on the counter. Darn thing never did raise any 🙂 It tasted okay, but not great. It is in the fridge and might find a second life as ice cream.
Finally, running. I miss it. I have a hard time talking about it as it really came to be something I looked forward to and enjoyed in an odd sort of way. I am still having a very hard time with my foot and am thinking of heading to a sports medicine type specialist. The family doctor and foot doctor have done little to nothing to improve my condition and I refuse to be told that at age 30 I can no longer run. My thoughts are to find what keeps it recurring, fix it, and get back on track. My sister is still running (my last good run was with her.) She is on week 6 of the C25K program and I am so happy for her. 25 mninutes straight running is a huge for us and I am glad she has attained it…she’s my hero sometimes 🙂 I would love to get this taken care of and run a race with her in the spring.
