I am a slacker

Yes, you saw it here first - I am a slacker. 

I have totally neglected my blog and I feel rotten. 
I tried to come up with some great excuses, but I. have. none. *sigh* 

I was especially bummed when McMommy had a POW and I missed it!  

So I've decided to do a quick potpourri of random thoughts so I can pull this blog back into shape!

**I am training for a half marathon and it is kicking me in the behind.  I've done every single run, but I am exhausted by 8:00.  This week my long run is at it's highest (12 miles) and then it is downhill until the race.  There are only 3 1/2 weeks left and I am feeling pretty confident that I can reach my personal goal of finishing in under 2 hours and 15 minutes.  :)

**All kids really need, to have a great hour (or more) of fun, is a big box!

**I'm really getting tired of this wishy washy weather.  One day the kids are playing in shorts and t-shirts and the next day it is snowing. It is so annoying trying to uncover winter coats after I just unpacked spring clothes. Seriously, pick a temperature and stay with it.

**Reese has gotten attached to one of Olivia's baby dolls.  This can be a problem since all of a sudden, it is Olivia's favorite baby doll. We are trying to convince Olivia to pick out a new baby doll at the store and give Reese the old baby doll.  So far, she can't find one good enough to replace the old one! Here she is holding the infamous baby doll!  (Will decided to get into the picture with her as well!)

**Last week we went to the zoo and I captured this great shot of Olivia. She loved wearing the flower in her hair - even though it wasn't supposed to be picked!

**I just found out that I won a second giveaway at McMommy and Me!  Dare I say I'm feeling pretty lucky right now!! 

**So I signed up on twitter.  Not exactly sure why since I have no idea what I am doing! 

I think that is enough for now.  It is time for me to call it a night.  I have to get up early tomorrow morning to run!  Night all.

Join the slacking club. I have been totally off the radar.

I need to get me one of those really big boxes. (Or even better a few!)

How sweet is it that Olivia is even willing to look for a new doll! What a great big sister she is.
