Thursday Thoughts: It’s Almost December Edition

Random Thursday Thoughts: Thank goodness I didn't run CIM.  Sounds like they are expecting nasty rain and wind. I hate seeing my kids struggle.  I wish I could ease the struggle for them and fix all the wrongs.  But I know that part of life is dealing with the struggles.  It just makes me hurt …

Thursday Thoughts: Blonde Moment Edition

Random Thursday Thoughts: Can a former-blonde-turned-brunette have Blonde Moments?  Cause I had a major one today with the morning's hill workout.  It's actually way too embarrassing to even publicly admit, so you'll just have to trust me when I say that I'm an idiot.  In the interest of full disclosure and trying to be a …
