Well, I know, I am blogging 2 days in a row. I have to catch up from all the time I missed. Well, I just finished running on the treadmill. I have been running 3 times per week and do a 30 min run which includes a warm up and cool down. I have been doing the glute toner and waist reducer profile on it and it has been good. Today I did the glute toner and it just about killed me when I first did it because it goes to a 12.5 incline. But I finished it. Today I stayed on the Level 8 and I did not go down a notch. I am very proud of myself. I listen to the radio that is down there. I do have a ipod shuffle that Neil got me, for some reason all the songs are off of it and I don't know how to put them on. (I do have a finger and thumb shaped as an "L" on my forhead). I HATE figuring things out like that. computer stuff, camera stuff, ipod stuff. Anyway, I turned on the radio and "So What" by Pink (I think that is who sings it) was on. That is a song that really gets me pumped up (as they say in the cheer leading world) JOKES. It really does get me pumped up and makes me want to run hard. Next they played "More than words" by Extreme which is slow and a good song that I really like but does not get me pumped up. I figured I needed to get my i-pod going and get all they songs that make me move fast and put them on. The Island Getaway song that Weazer sings is also another one I like. Anwyay, it was a good run and It makes me happy. I tell Neil that my glutes are already showing signs of being toned and my waist is being reduced and he just laughs. Because I have only been doing it for a few weeks, he says it can't happen that quick. I can tell. I can't wait until the spring and we can run together. He likes early morning though. Now me. We will see. Now I am off to get on with the rest of the day.

Here I am.

I know it has been quite a while since I blogged. I do think of great, funny things to say, but then I get to the computer and go blank but also I have not had time to get on and blog. I hear Reece starting to get upset, but I have a few minutes. I really enjoy facebook. I have gotten in contact with friends from high school and relatives. Neil's relatives and I think it is absolutely great. I love family and love being able to keep in touch.

Well, we got through last week. It was Monday, Early dismissal because of a storm; Tuesday, Late start because of said storm; Wednesday, No school because of cold and snow; Thursday, no school because of cold; Friday, NO SCHOOL BECAUSE OF COLD! We got to monday and it was a half day (yesterday). Well, my kids are still alive. No it was okay but after Christmas break not being that long ago I was getting tired of it. We got through and all is well. Today they are back in school. There is a lot of snow out and if there are any more snow days will be going to school for half the summer. Not really but we are already going to June 11th.

Well, things are good here. Reece is growing and no I still have no pictures off my camera (SORRY, SORRY). I know. He is smiling and starting to laugh and is really a good baby. He sleeps good at night also. Well, he is really starting to cry now.

Anyway, I just wanted to check in and let everyone know I am still here. I love to read peoples blogs and don't like it when there are large gaps. So now I am doing that. Anyway, the inaguration (however you spell it) is today and it makes me very emotional to see everything that happens with that. The leaving of the current President and then the coming of the new President. What a great planned out system it is. I really enjoy watching it. I am recording it and sharing with Regan. He watches some Dora and then I watch some of the things on today. Take Care. Everyone enjoy your day and this beautiful country that we live in. (Canada is also beautiful). We just are lucky to be here and have the opportunities that we have here. HAVE A GREAT DAY!
