Yay, 5 miles!

I haven't been running very much in the last several months. I have not run over 4 miles since March 25th! So today I decided to run 5 miles and see how it felt. But as luck would have it, it snowed again last night so I had to go to the gym and run on the treadmill.

But I did it! 5 miles, very slow and tiring, miles!! Woohoo!

A bevy of monsters

Little man and his siblings got some modeling clay from their grandpa. I asked each of them what they were making. L was making people, M was trying to copy her ;) and Little man was making "a bevy of monsters" I said " a waht?" he said "a bevy of monsters."

I tried not to giggle and asked him where he learned about bevy. He said "it means a lot of monsters, mom" like I was a dumb adult :P. L said he learned it from the old McDonalds videos we have. Finally, all that tv/movie watching is paying off, lol.

I taught him that plethora means the same thing. He said this morning "dad, I have a bevy, plethora of monsters!" hehe.

Trans Siberian Orchestra

Stu and I were lucky enough to go to their concert and it was so much fun! Doba, the company that Stu works for, purchased enough tickets for the whole company to go if they wanted to. So we lined up a babysitter and ran out of the house as fast as we could. Ok, so we made sure the kids were fed and in pj's first and we did have a cell phone. But we were both so excited to go.

Here is one of their songs just incase you haven't heard of them before. I love listening to them while I workout.

Sorry, the video decided that it didn't want to work anymore. I'll put another one on here as soon as I find a good one.

We usually don't get that much snow at my house, atleast not at once. This pic was taken Sunday morning after two days of off and on snow.

And this is what happens when your 4 year old is so excited to play in the snow. He runs outside and falls down the cement steps. The goose egg is ginormous. The pic doesn't do it any justice. Poor kid.

Oh how sweet it is :)

To PASS your math 990 class when you are not smart when it comes to math and half your brain cells are gone since having children.

I needed 70% on the final to pass my math class (dumb rule by the math department) and I got a 70.83% hahaha. I don't care, I'm moving on, woohoo!!!

And I earned every point, especially after my morning. Which I'll post about later today or tomorrow.

Edit: I got a B+ in the class overall, fyi :)
