slump de bump

My heroine, The Sock Fashion Expert "taken out the trash" with a no excuses attitude (the same one she uses on me when we're running together).

Ever heard the term "ran circles around"? Well that's what my daughter does to me, LITERALLY! Last year she was barely doing 3 miles before our 5K. She almost didn't do it because of joint pain. This year, she is running like a maniac, wishing she could drag me beyond 7 miles and bored enough to sigh, yes, run circles around her mother literally ;-) That doesn't do a lot for my running prowess. Luckily, none of the Bloomsday Runners will be focused on my turtle like jogging skills and will most likely abstain from such activities...... Despite my lack of motivation this spring, I think my upcoming Bloomsday Run will be just the thing to pull me out of that slump.

Its been super busy since we got back home from Minnesota. It was a wonderful trip - one we cherished with so many special times. Now we are back home and fighting to get into a routine of sorts. With only 2 1/2 weeks of home schooling our kids left, we are cracking those books hard along with a lot of spring cleaning. This week we went out for a special fire dept banquet. Fishing for compliments on my attire I told my husband "why don't you give me a compliment" as we were waiting for our fabulous, 5 star prime rib. He and our eldest graced me with a series of compliments, though they were not at all what I was fishing for.... Here are some of them :

"Baby you look better than a cut throat trout in a frying pan"

"You look better than a woodshed full of wood"

"You look better than a slobbering bull elk coming to my call"

"Better than a whole tub of bear fat rendering on the stove"

"Uh thanks...... I think"
