Post Ideas

I've had two ideas for blog posts in the last week, and I've forgotten both of them...
Ugh! Life is fast! So fast, I forget myself half the time.

Just to keep you up-to-date, I ran my seventh 5K last night. Ran is debatable, but still, ran a good bit of 5K last night. This whole diabetes thing is a real pain in the you-know-what, if you know what I mean. Lows, highs, balance, energy, etc. I have to admit, I was a little frustrated as I walked most of the 5K, if only to make sure my sugar didn't drop too low. And I think I hate eating. I mean, I want to just NOT eat... especially before I run. But alas, I end up eating. And the worst??? Eating while I run. [hahaha] I know marathoners have to do it because you have to build the energy stores. And a full marathon... gotta down some kind of energy source. But this is just 5K! 3ish miles. I was really frustrated when my calves started hurting by the half mile. All these people running with me and by me... aren't they sore? aren't they tired? Am I the only one who still feels like I'm out of shape? When I feel like I should be in better shape.*eyeroll*


Anyway...enough about that. I'm taking the kids tonight to do another 5K, and we are DEFINITELY walking it. Strolling even...with a stop or two to smell the flowers, right? :D

Army Life:
Today, I'm taking the kids to our first Change of Command ceremony. What?!
Yes, I know. I've been in the Army--haha, I mean my husband's been in the Army for 2.5 years, and I've never been to one. So, we're going. Maybe I'll get a few pics. It's not really that big a deal... the turnover rate around here seems so high, I can't imagine they aren't doing these things at least once or twice a month. But still, there are times, I feel the kids don't get the whole picture of what being in the military or being a military family is...except for their dad is gone alot more, works longer hours, etc. This is a little special, and I've bribed them with ice cream to sit through the speeches. Ice cream and oreos, actually.

Revisions on One Heartbeat are in full swing again. After recieving interest in the story from an editor who suggested a few changes, I'm going through it to see if I can't tighten up the story and make it better. Two major[ish] changes, though, and I hope I don't completely LOSE the editor over them, but they do fix the problem she had with the story in the first place. So we'll see. I'm actually excited about the changes, so even if she doesn't like them... by the end of the year, I'll be putting this story out for sale even if I have to self-publish it.

That's all around here.
Have a great week.
With Love,

Well, it's over. Settled. What a crock. Obviously, I'm not over it completely because if you wanted I could sit with you and rant over the injustice of the system for a good bit of time. But, I have other things to do. I have life to live [no thanks to that stupid girl who doesn't know how to drive and is probably still on the road today]. hahaha. :D

Next stop?

My husband's graduation and GEORGIA!
I'm moving to Georgia! ACK! What do I do?!?!

I know. Get rid of my winter coat. What an awesome break that's going to be. I've been living up North so long, a year down south is something to look forward to. Of course, I think I'll always end up back North. I'm a Northern girl at heart. Four seasons. Colorful autumns. Cold winters. Coffee. Lots of blankets. Snuggling down with my lover... and warm bodies. *cough*  Um... well, you get the idea. I do love my jeans!!! :D LOL

For now, the Army has me heading south. I go there excited and enthusiastic because that's where my man is. It is about time for us to be together as a family again. :D Yippee!!
