Small Town Fun-Run

Jakob enjoys running. He has SO MUCH energy! I heard about our Small Town Fun Run and I knew Jakob would enjoy participating.

Jakob is Very lucky to have a dad who is willing to run along side him in the race. They ran the 5K. I thought for sure with it being 3 miles Jakob would insist on walking some of it. He proved me completely wrong. Apparently he and Leif ran the whole way, no walking. Jakob was the first to cross the finish line in his age group (8 years old and younger.) I was VERY proud of he and Leif. They made it in 37 minutes and 6 seconds. Awesome!

I waited at the finish line and had a good time cheering everyone on as they crossed the line. Grandma Baron walked with Caleb along the running route and watched the runners come along the way. I was so grateful for her help!!

It was a great experience! We look forward to next year. We went out to dinner today and used the gift certificate that they won. Fun Indeed!

On a More Positive Note

Sorry about that last post. Guess I needed to vent. But I have more pain meds today and I can see things more clearly.

Thank you sweet ladies for your Love and Encouragement! I have many things to be grateful for and I haven't been abandoned! In fact, yesterday Leif's mom had the kids off and on all day. Leif is constantly doing one thing or another to help me. If he does anything for himself it's just taking a minute to take care of the chickens or check his email. Other then that he's constantly at my beck n' call. I know I couldn't be more spoiled.

I even got new glasses yesterday!! I now have two pair of glasses. Not necessary, but very appreciated! I wanted a more light weight, blend-in, style of glasses. I have had the stand out style for 4 years and I wanted a change. Fun huh!?

So I've been craving chocolate chip coconut cookies. But I haven't the energy to make them, let alone wash the dishes after them. But I found the EASIEST recipe. And it had exactly what I wanted in them. You ready?

1 cake mix
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs

1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup nuts
1 cup coconut

Scoop on pan, bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes. Mix-In's can be anything.

So, today we had pictures taken. Originally it was a sitting for JJ's Newborn Photos. But we got the boys in there as well as Leif and I and a family photo. I am SO THRILLED! I can't wait to see them!!!

We also went out for a yummy lunch afterwards, took a great nap, AND walked to the library to register Leif and Jakob for the local Fun Run this weekend. Very Exciting!

And it was all made possible by Lortab! Bless You!

Mama's Update

I have a moment where I can try to sleep again, or blog. I guess I'll blog. I don't feel like falling asleep just in time for the crew to come in the house and unintentionally wake me up. I decided to help JJ find a better appreciation for his swing today. He let me shower. Now he's making sounds like a built in count down clock, 10, 9, 8, okay... Moving on.

So, what to write about? Um, you know how in the last post things sounded a bit blissful? Well, lets just say that everyone has moved on from the mama isn't feeling well stage... except me. I think I better get back on the "Life is Good" band wagon. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE snuggling with my baby all day long. In fact, that's pretty much ALL I feel up to doing... I knew this part of having a C-section would be the hardest part. (BTW: Don't read this if complaining upsets you, because I don't feel like refraining, sorry.) I've run out of my pain meds last night, and now I feel like I've been hit by a truck ALL the time, instead of the half hour until the next pill kicks in. I'm not just talking about my incision either, my WHOLE body hurts. The other day I had a fever of 102 degrees. Yes, I am taking antibiotics. But the pain was around before the fever.

So anyway, I'm very tired, and very sore! And I'm trying not to get depressed about the fact that Leif goes back to work and a horribly intense schedule for school soon. Trying is the key word. ... Well, there it is. My update. And JJ's hit lift off.

No Worries, Life is still Good!
