Ready, Set, GOAL!

So, as I am in my 2nd grade classroom teaching my little kiddos today I started day dreaming... I know, I know, I was supposed to be teaching, but hey it happens to all of us!  I came up with a game plan for my running.  I am trying to run for me and not anybody else (lately this has been extremely difficult for me!)  So I set a goal and put it into action today.  I CAN NOT do anything less than 6 miles.  This means:  I can run, treadmill (UGH, I HATE THAT WORD), elliptical, bike, or anything else that has to do with aerobics!  This does not mean: I come home from school and sit on the couch and stare at the wall.  As I am completing my goal tonight at the gym on the treadmill (UGH) it was miserable.  I just do not like to run inside, I don't mind the cold, but hate the wind!  So where I live and at this time of the year I guess I am S.O.L! Too bad, I don't have all day to do whatever I would like but I don't want to be one of these either...

I have three weeks left until Christmas break!! YEA!

So lets see if I keep my GOAL in action... I promise to keep you updated! :o)

YEA!! First Post Ever!

Ok, I am sooo new this blogging business!  After laying around this morning and getting a text from a running buddy that Baron Batch commented on her blog it hit me... That would be so neat to start blogging... nevermind the fact that I love reading Skinny Runners blog (like everyday, I mean every hour... Ooops!)  So since I am so new to this I will keep this first post short and simple. 

John and Me! :o) Love Him!

Tom, John and Me!

I just got back from Amarillo visiting my future-in-laws for Thanksgiving!  We had a great time!  John, Tom, and I woke up and ran The Turkey Trot in sub-freezing weather!  YES, IT WAS FREEZING, there was even black ice on one hill that we had to run up!  It was fun, cold, and fast!  We are back home and John spent the last 2 days putting up Christmas lights on the house! HAHAHA! I laugh out loud because it was soo funny!  He got all finished Friday night and we all gather outside like the Griswald's (spelling??) and plugs them in and only ONE measly old red light works!  It was sad and down right funny!  But, I give him props it was his first time putting up Christmas lights by himself! I decorated the house or semi-decorated the house and tree because my baby (Great Dane Puppy, Boss) would take everything down as soon as I got it up... UGH!  So I had to give a few things up this year due to him, but Oh Well!  My favorite day of the year is probably BLACK FRIDAY, not because of the deals but because it allows me to wake up EARLY just to go SHOP!  I mean come on, it doesn't get any better than shopping at 2:30 AM!

Still working on the lights :o)

Boss Man!

So tell me, what is your favorite time of this year?... Shopping, decorating, baking, eating, etc...
