I haven't quite fallen off the face of the earth yet, I just don't find my life all that interesting. Well, that's not exactly true because anyone that really knows me or lives with me knows that there is always some drama in my life, it's just usually not anything that I should share. I could bore you all with the lame assignment I've been working on for the last week in my master's program, but you would all be asleep. Or I could tell you about the various things my kids are doing (Jane's dance recital is coming up in two weeks! and Kate did make student council for next year in school. Both big accomplishments in the kid world) and that Sammy is learning how to say NO with much enthusiasm! He also could teach me a few things on a running slap, a nasty habit that I'm trying to break him of! But, when it comes down to it, my life is filled with the same things that yours are, and who wants to read about that. I do the laundry, make the bed, ignore the pig-stye my daughters call bedrooms, get talked back to on a more than regular basis, wonder where the day went and why I haven't showered quite yet, make dinner, hear complaints about the dinner I prepared, and tell myself that tomorrow is a new day and I can always do better! Then tomorrow comes and it's just the same old thing.

Yesterday I did it! I ran the Race For The Cure 5K in Salt Lake. Okay, so I didn't finish first, not even in great time for that matter, but the point is that I finished. I would post a picture, but have a new computer that doesn't have the software to download and upload pictures! I have to admit that after 6 weeks of training for this, I really thought that it would be easier. I thought that after a few weeks a training I wouldn't become winded after 2 minutes. I thought I would get to the point where every step wasn't loathed, but lo and behold, not much changed. I became winded and couldn't talk after 2 minutes and did hate every single step. I guess that some people just run and others don't. I fit into the second category. I guess that I will continue to train because I'm supposed to do another one in a couple of weeks. I'm really hoping that by that time, I will be able to actually go more than 2 minutes before wanting to put a gun to my head! Everyone says that it gets easier - I think it's a ploy to torture the unbelievers! I'm having a hard time believing that it will EVER get easier.
