Naturally I got myself into a hole when I decided to participate in one of the days of Red Ribbon week. The kids couldn't handle the thought of not doing the next day as well. I am spent! but I did grab a few pairs of socks at the store. I couldn't find anything in the boys department so Dallin's socks are from the womens department. Shhh dont tell him he will freak out. By the time he cares enough to read this post he will be a teenager and hate me any ways. Its our little secret until then. Don't want to ruin his day... they were all soo happy. It makes me feel bad that I have not tried harder in the past. Not bad enough to do this crap next year.

good to see the reflector patch on Livvy's backpack works
Just another damn thing to do. Seriously I feel like every other day one of my kids has a paper requiring me to do something for their class or for the school fundraiser or the book fair, or collect box tops,or walk them to school for national walk to school day etc. I usually never make it a point to do these things cause I can never keep up. I am sure my kids have missed their fair share of wear your pajamas to school day. I feel bad about it cause this stuff is fun for them but mostly I am pissed at these damn cutesy PTA bitches that come up with this crap! Last night after teaching a class and making dinner and I was ready for a Hot steamy bath when my kids spring the whole "its crazy hair day tomorrow" thing on me. I decide to go to the store and buy a bunch of spray paint and hair clips and rubber bands and make the best of it. This morning I woke up and got as creative as a non morning person can get. They were so excited for school so I am happy about my efforts. But as I sent them away on their bikes the thought occurred to me that I hope it really is crazy hair day! I never saw a paper or announcement about it and my kids are notorious for mixing things up like that. Now I am crossing my fingers till they get home.

I feel like so many people have cool places to go and people to see on the weekends. All my gym friends seem to have BIG plans every weekend. I always feel lame cause outside of a netflix movie I don't have much to get excited about. Last night though I was outside with my kids and realized it beats going to a bar and doing the single thing and watching a movie at home is the bomb cause you can pause it plus eat and cuddle up with a blanket on the couch. Before the sun went down we took the kids outside to play with them and had a real good time. Riding bikes, practicing tennis, teaching Dallin some basketball skills and just doing family time. I realized I actually prefer to be at home chillaxin and thats why I never have plans. I dont make them!

This weekend was Homecoming for Dallin and Olivia. You would think no big deal right? I mean they are young. But not in Texas. It was a big deal. The whole week was full of preparation for this one day. I was going to miss it for my race but I had Andrew take some pics. Here in Texas the big thing is a mum for the girls. The bigger the better and a garter for the boys. The cheer leaders got to escort the boys onto the field as they called out their names. Olivia escorted several boys. Which she loved doing but I guess her old man wasn't too pleased with it.. cause he stopped taking pics after the third one. Dallin ran away from his little cheerleader thinking that was the cool thing to do. That so would NOT have happened if I was there! All the football players had a poster that needed to be put on the fence for them. I just did what I could do and he was happy with it.

By far the most difficult race I have ever done hands down. I loved the challenge and was glad to push my boundaries. When they say its the toughest event on the planet. That's pretty much spot on. I am so tired and sore. 12 miles and 29 obstacles. Crazy. I actually blacked out with the electro shock at the end. And my whole body was throbbing. I can't describe how much energy and camaraderie there was amongst the other racers. Its the most amazing thing to experience that is indescribable. Only if you can run 12 miles and are willing to throw 170 lb people over a wall would you get it. To all the people that ran with me I say Good Job and thanks for your help.
