A week in San Diego

My kids are great. They really are! I am so blessed . . .

We spent last week together in San Diego. I worked, and they kept themselves busy!

This past week I was doing double duty--I worked for the Army during the day and BSC in the evenings. It worked (kind of), but I was exhausted at the end of each day, and I didn't get to spend much time with my kids.

And I apologize to those of you who were the recipients of my . . . snippishness (mostly BSC SMEs--is snippishness even a word?).

However, the monsters did a GREAT job of entertaining themselves while I worked! They played in the pool (or bathed in the sun beside it), explored Coronado, and visited the Midway.

And they planned a wonderful birthday for me!
Thank you Rachel and Tyler--I love you!

They bought me flowers . . .
 And joined me for dinner . . .

Twice . . . (OK, more than twice . . .)

And we fed the ducks . . . many times! I wish I could have spent more time with my kids!

It was a productive week though--I completed some important tasks both for the Army and BSC, so it was worth the effort.

We are back in EDH now, so watch out (after all, Rachel is driving!)!

The Trail Run

I've been slacking off (I know). It's hard to run when I travel, although I did run in San Diego . . . OK, I ran one day while I was down there, but I did run! It is hard to make time for running when I'm so busy! (Excuses, excuses . . . I know . . .)

I ran tonight though! I love running with the team--it's so motivating! Today, our workout was a trail run--a hilly trail run. A six mile, hilly trail run. And it felt great . . . While I was running, I remembered SFC Duggan telling me to use the hills when I was at Ft. Benning last fall . . . so I used the hills!

But I'm not running for the Army this time--I'm running for a cure. And I want to thank those of you who have supported me by donating. I've also raised $48 by selling chocolate, and will be hosting a Pampered Chef fundraiser in another week (check back for details!). I need to reach my goal by August 5--will you help me?

Thank you!
