This was me and Holly (or Marathon Bird to the bloggy land) last year! We had SO much fun running together. I love that girl. I could not have made it to the finish line without her. Can you tell how excited I was...I think the finish line was coming up. ha! I have been running the Houston Aramco Half Marathon for 3 years. This January would have been my 4th....did you notice I said "would have been??" I am a little bitter! Well, alot bitter. This year the half marathon sold out in LESS THAN 48 hours!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?? Of course, guess who didn't get signed up? Yep, you guessed it....ME!! (Oh, and my sweet hubby. He ran the half last year for the first time and yes, he beat me...bad. But that's another post.) :) In the past I never signed up until around October. I think they at least could have given us Houstonians a heads up, don't you?
I am so sad. I always look forward to the training, the sweat and tears, my super cool running shoes, my ever so cute running skirt, running with friends, coffee after our Saturday runs and of course the BIG day! It's so much fun! I really feel like I got jipped! I have contemplated emailing the half marathon big dogs and giving them a piece of my mind...like they care. But, it would make me feel better.
Now, I am trying to decide if I train just to keep up with my exercise or just give running a break for a bit. I am torn. I love running but when I trained I was doing it for not only my health but to run the race! That was the prize! Not to mention you get a really cool medal, shirt and the all fun water bottle. :)
I guess the old saying is true...."you snooze, you loose!"

Today we have done NOTHING and it feels oh so good!! I did take the kids to chick-fil-a and let me tell you...that place rakes in the money. Every time we go there, which is quite a bit, it is always crowded. I swear they could build another one right next door and it would do just as good. I think I might look into a franchise. :) So, other than an outing for Chick, we have been lazy. I love being home with my kids....I wouldn't rather be anywhere else. Well, the beach....but I want my kids with me. :)

Here's a shout out to my favorite fast food restaurant. :) Gotta love some Chick-fil-a. I love that my kids love eating there rather than McDonalds. Sometimes McDonalds makes me gag.
I have enjoyed eating there twice this week with the best company in the world.
And, BTW, this guy, Tim Hawkins is one of my favorite Christian comedians. He is so funny and has some really funny songs that he has made up to popular tunes. You can google him on You Tube or Tangle.com. And, thanks to Holly, I finally figured out how to put videos up. For some reason I could never get it to work. Thanks, Holly. Now, y'all might get tired of all the videos. HA!

Ever had one of those days when you feel you can't do anything right? Nothing you do seems good enough. Am I making a difference in my kids lives? Am I a good wife? Why did I say that to so-and-so today. yada yada yada....You know the drill. It has been a hard summer for me and my family....Today I was feeling a little blue and as I was checking blogs I found this precious little girl and cried and laughed and laughed some more...she is precious. She has the love of Jesus and it is contagious! It totally cheered me up...I hope it makes you happy, too! Have a great day....
"Faith is exactly what it takes to get through uncertainty. Faith is not necessary when you know how things are going to work out, - that's knowledge. It's in the time of unknowing that having faith is what sees you through to the other side. Faith is what gives you strength. Faith is that light in your heart that keeps on shining even when it's all darkness outside. Now is the time to keep that faith alive!"
