So, what does every soon-to-be-divorced-and-on-her-own-fending-for-herself-woman need?!?
How awesome are these, which showed up on my doorstep wrapped in a bow today? (Thanks, little brother!)
They are so pretty that they almost make me want to actually use them. The scissors I have figured out. Now who’s gonna show me what to do with the rest of them when something breaks around my house?! Fingers crossed that I don’t actually need to use these things any time soon!

In running news, I had an awesome 7 mile workout with the group this morning. 7 miles with 3 hill loops (1.25 miles each; pace goal was to stay aerobic at 85% of half marathon pace for first 2 loops, then on 3rd loop to push it to anaerobic during the last 1/2 mile or so). It went really well. We had done 2 of these same hill loops last week and I felt like I was going to die at the end of the 2nd loop, but this week I was ok on all 3 loops, even the anaerobic one. I LOVE when I can start feeling myself get in shape.
I also LOVE that it is December 14th and it was 37 degrees and ZERO snow when we ran today. You realize that there is no snow this year because we spent $1000 on cross country ski equipment for Meghan, right? Totally worth it. I’m gonna buy her new ski equipment every year if it keeps the snow away!
