My race is tomorrow morning at 8am. I am nervous and excited and hopeful. I am nervous because I've never done this before. I am excited because I have been working hard and want to see myself accomplish this goal. I am hopeful because I want to run the entire race--no walking--and I want to keep a steady pace.

Today is a restful day. I'm not doing much, and per Marla's advice, I'm staying off my feet. I intend to drink a lot of water and rest. I hope Dave has a quiet weekend of call. I hope hope hope so.

As for my hair, I am still holding out. I think it is getting better. :)

This is a busy week coming up. Today is my Grandma's birthday. I haven't been able to get cards out for Mother's Day or her birthday. I can't look at cards with my kids. It takes too long, and the kids all fight and pull the cards off the shelf. So, it looks like they will be late. I hate that, but that is how it goes sometimes.

Maryn had an axillary (under the arm) temp of 103 yesterday. She had no other symptoms. I got a little worried about her last night. She's completely fine today. Weird.

Maryn will be four on Monday.

That is hard to believe.

We will be having her birthday party the following Saturday with our family. She is looking forward to it. It is a Tinkerbell birthday. :)

This is a boring post, so I think I'll stop. Blah blah blah. :)


  1. Have fun at your race tommorow :). I'm proud of you!

  2. I hope your race goes great tomorrow. I have complete faith that you can do it. Be proud of yourself; I'm proud of you already!

  3. Manda, you are going to be awesome! Good luck and I wish I was going to make it like I hoped. I'm cheering for you and the rest of the 1200 or so ladies that are supposed to run tomorrow. Yes, women can run! ;)This is totally Amanda by the way but I don't want to log out & back in and lose what I wrote.


Let me know you stopped by! I love reading your comments!
