long time no see. I have totally been slacking in updating my blog...and I am not happy about it!
Seems like the only time when I have time for this is in the middle of the night when I actually should be sleeping.
Oh well, I hope you forgive me.
Let`s think what we have been up to.
We had a great Christmas .My Mom and brother came over to visit from Germany and it was just so wonderful to have them here. I also found out some great news: I will be an aunt in June...an aunt of twins...WOW!!!
It was very sad when they left again and on those days I don`t like living here.On those days I wished I was back in Germany..but those moments pass by quickly especially with my 2 crazy honeybugs buzzing around.
On January 14 I ran my FIRST half marathon.Well not really, I did relay and ran 8.6 miles. But I was very proud of myself and I did awesome time.
I think I can call myself a runner now.
Already signed up for the next...on March 27 in Tucson..this time I am doing the whole 13 miles!!
Me and my family after the race...Calan had a moment and didn`t want to be in the picture
My running buddy Joni and I
Just got in at the relay stop after 8.6 miles...WOW..what a feeling!!
I also started a new 8 week challenge right after New Year.
Tomorrow week 6 is starting and it is going well. Definitely slower than the firts time, but maybe there is less fat to lose now..ha ha
I am down another 9 pounds and a few inches and I am hoping for 5 more pounds in the next 3 weeks. I think I can do it.
The kids are doing good. Naiya still loves school even though she has her moments. She definitely doesn`t like to do homework , that is always a challenge. So I came up with a sticker chart and after 5 days of doing her homework without drama she can go to the dollarstore and pick something. That seems to work.Lately she actually rather wants the $1 in cash since she wants to save money to go back to the Build a Bear store and buy things for "Princess" (her pink dog) .
Calan also got a sticker chart for listening and cleaning up.Let`s just say we are still working on the success...
Time for me to go to bed.
Stay warm wherever you are. And come back to see me!
