You Remember Me, Right?!

Time gets away from me faster then I realize sometimes....well, I guess I realize it when I sit down to write and it's been weeks since the last time I wrote, but maybe some of you know what that's like. :) Normally, I'd be in bed right now, but I got a late start on washing Jacob's work clothes, so now I'm having to wait for them to get done so he has clothes to wear in the morning. Of course, it'll probably rain a lot and he won't be able to work, but at least all his work clothes will be ready for him next week. He has Friday off, which works out wonderfully well as he was either going to have to take off the whole day or at least half a day so we could head up to Kansas City for my half marathon I'm doing on Saturday with my mom and two of my sisters! Yes, it's this weekend!!! I can't hardly believe seems like I've been training for a long time and even though I knew I was training for this half marathon now that it's almost here it's like WOW am I really ready to do this!? I'm actually really excited and I probably should be more nervous about it, but I'm not....I mean I am when I think about it a bunch and the fact that I want my finish time to be good (I really don't want to be last!) and I worry about not being ready for the hills. Ok, I'm still excited even when I think about those things! It'll be even more fun since I'll be doing it with my mom and sisters and we all have matching outfits, which it totally awesome! I will definitely be posting pictures of our "race day"...of course, I'll be a little reluctant to post pictures of us after we've finished the race! I mean I don't know about my mom and sisters, but after running 13+ miles I look a lot like a red lobster soaked in water (sweat)....but, I suppose I'll post them any way because we will all have our medals and we'll definitely want to be showing them off! :) Ohhh, I'm getting more and more excited just talking about it! Not that part of being as red as a lobster soaked in sweat, but I think you know what I mean!

So, I should move onto something besides running, because there are those that don't find that interesting....which I understand since I used to be one of them, but I've been bitten by the "running bug" and when I get together with my mom and sisters that's a big portion of what we talk about and we love it!

Well, since last time I posted Bethany had her 1st birthday! My little baby is now a 1-year old and thinking she's big stuff...she runs around doing everything Abigail does, whether good or bad (usually it's bad, trust me!). Her personality is really starting to show and she is such a clown; she will purposely do anything and everything she can think of to make you laugh and it usually works even when you try not to laugh! She's definitely a joy to be around....except at night....we're working on the sleeping though the night.....she's not there, I wish she was.....maybe soon............maybe.
I will try to post some pictures of their birthdays next week sometime...I have a full camera again and it'll be even more full after this weekend! Oh, and I have a kitchen now!!! It's now fully functional and I was able to unpack all of my dishes....oh, how I missed them! My kitchen is and looks amazing and I love it, but not as much as I love my Jacob who did a lot of hard work to make it look and be nice for me. He is so good to me! But, yes, I'll be posting pictures of my kitchen, lots to look forward to!

I'll talk to y'all next week sometime....don't forget about me!
