I have seriously had a blog post rolling around in my head (with plenty of thumps, because it's a doozy) for 2 months now. I don't know why I haven't sat down to write it yet. Fear? Laziness? My guess is the fear. Because it will surely bring forth the sorrow I've tried desperately to bury for so long.
We are doing well. Tim's business has been taking a nosedive the past several months and the poor guy has been under TREMENDOUS stress. Owning a business is a faith tester, that's for sure. But a God is good, so so good. And I know we will find our way out of this labyrinth. In the meantime I wish my poor man could sleep and get a moment of peace. That seems impossible anymore.
The kids (10 & 8) are doing great. I love homeschooling them and this year had been a blast so far. I can't imagine not being home with them everyday. Mikey is playing soccer right now and while it's a lot more challenging to him than baseball (which comes as naturally as breathing), he loves it and it's so fun to watch him. He's also going to follow in Mama's running footsteps and run a 5K next month. He's so excited! He and I ran a couple miles the other night and the kid smoked me. He will have no problem running 3.1!
Ikey is no longer in dance. She wanted a change and I wanted to get away from the ill-run dance school we were part of. I miss watching her, but she'll be starting soccer with the local Christian sports league in our area. I can't wait to see her play! I was never too active as a kid and I think it's so important. I think if I had had better eating and exercise habits when I was younger, it maybe wouldn't have been so hard to discipline myself now that I'm older. But who knows. I just know it's so hard to have 2 kids and throw in the responsibilities of life while trying to completely change the way you've done things all your life.
I'm leading a Bible study group this year at our church. We are doing Beth Moore's study on James. SO good. I'm also trying to tackle memorizing the whole book of James, though I'm barely at the end of the 1st chapter. Rich stuff in there though.
I'm hoping to sign up for another half-Marathon to force myself to stay in training. The past 2.5 months since I ran the Half have been a downward spiral in terms of fitness. Starting a new school year is definitely a time sucker. So I'm hoping that if I at least sign up for another one I can start back up my training and not drop the ball again this time.
Okay enough about me. ;)
