Swing Your Partner Round And Round!!!

Well hello everyone! As you can see, my blogging has been more sporadic then usual, and for that I apologize; But what have I been up to? HA, not much, other then running, playing with my dog, spending time with my bread winner and working:p But I just realized I told the entire blogger world about, possibly, getting fired weeks ago then just left y'all hanging! Not cool, and I'm sorry. Things have settled down a lot with that. I'm not really sure whats different but my numbers have been way more attractive so I'm not as worried which is equaling less stress in my life:p So, thank you all for your kind words and thoughts! I think they helped:) For my new followers, if you haven't read my little "job" scare, you can find that post here.

But onto some BIG news! Last post I was really down on my running, however I have since been REALLY encouraged! Yesterday I got out there with my freshly charged Ipod, comfy shorts and familiar shoes and just ran and ran...I finished my two miles flawlessly and I felt great...I stopped, for no more then 1 minute, to drink a bit of water, then thought to myself...Ya know, I think I could at least do another mile...So that's just what I did! However, I finished that third mile without even a pit stop and just kept on trucking until I completed another mile...I AM SMILING FROM EAR TO EAR AFTER TYPING THAT! That totals 4 freakin miles outdoors ladies with only one break for some water...BUT WAIT, here is the best part...I went from running 12 minute miles to 10 minute miles the whole darn way....AHHHHHHHH! Excuse me while I scream into a pillow then proceed to swing my (imaginable) partner round and round...I honesly feel like a 5k is in my near future?????

Robert is on CQ tonight so I am all alone minus our two furry kids...For those of you who have a cat and dog, do they play with one another and if so, is it rough play? Bella is so aggressive with Peanut but then Peanut gets his jabs in there too...I would think if one or the other is getting hurt then they would just quit, but they both come back for more....Robert is getting concerned that Bella is hurting Peanut, but Bella is the one who's always being left with big bloody scratches. I even think Peanut pulled one of her wiskers out because she has a nice little scab where one should have been...Thoughts? Suggestions? We're trying to teach them the word "easy" but its just not sinking in...Sigh...Maybe they'll grow out of it???


  1. I know this is the most random comment ever...but are you from Alaska?!?!?!? :)

  2. I'm glad that work has got better for you. That's awesome that your doing so well on running!

  3. That's so great that you had such a good run! I love the feeling of knowing you got this, that you can do another mile no problem. I *definitely* see a 5k in your future! Start looking around, if you haven't already, and find a good one.
    As for your pets. I have two cats and they 'play' fight. I hear them hissing at times and wonder if they get to rough but they seem to enjoy it. They've never drawn blood as far as I know though. Well, actually I think there has been a scratches before (it's hard to tell with all that fur). So I don't have any good advice about whether your furballs are playing too rough or what you can do.

  4. Mine never play fought... they just didn't get along at all, so I have really no advice on that.

    Sorry he is in CQ, I know how that sucks- you could bring him dinner in, I know that I was allowed to do that with Zak on his.

    Good to hear about your job and running, congrats!

  5. Congrats on your running! You are doing so well! I definitely think you should do a 5K! What's stopping you?? You've already done 4 miles!

    You rock my world...
