Wednesday's Wrandom Wrambling

This is kind of how I feel lately with my running and training.  GAH!  I really, REALLY have to get back on track.  If only the winter would go away.  Makes it so much easier.

I decided I really need to keep my pantry door shut.  My human target hangs there, and when it's open, it scares me every time.  I catch it out of the corner of my eye and think some dude is standing there. 

Three more sleeps until Splenda and I get on a plane, head to CA - board a great big ship and cruise the sea for 5 days.  A couple of stops in Cabo San Lucas and then back to CA.  Got an rx for the patch just in case.  Pulling out summer clothes, and getting giddy about the new adventure.  Both first time cruisers.  And I have to give a HUGE shout out to my Debbi.  She is the most experienced cruiser I've ever known, and she has given us so much information that I feel like we are completely prepared.  Now, just to have FUN and relax!

Love that my kids will come and stay at the house.  No worries about our home being secure and the dogs taken care of.  Actually since Jack and Jace are bff's, it's a win-win for everyone.

May Susan Powell and her boys enjoy a glorious reunion and rest in peace. 
And that is ALL I am going to say about it.  Done.  Over.  Judgement will come to Josh and I am grateful that I am not the one to dispense it.
The end of that.

Splenda Daddy has me hooked on a new series.  Justified.  Airs on FX.  Certainly not for everyone, but I am digging it.  And it gives me something to watch until Breaking Bad starts up again.

Love me the Wasatch Running.  Not much more to say about that.  Love it. 

Came across this song on a friends blog and instantly fell in love with it.  As you enjoy it, listen to the words.  Thanks Desert Hen

Don't you just love that?

I'm awfully proud of the men my sons have become.  I love the fact that I get a text, call, or fb message from at least one of them every day.  Between them and my daughter-in-love's, I am a lucky, lucky woman!

And Chloee?  The icing, whip cream and cherry on the cake!

Do you ever have people in your life that you see some extremely great things happening in their lives and know that they deserve every bit of it?  Yeah, I do too.  Makes me happy for them.

Do you ever have people in your life that have been dealt a crappy happy and yet, they still move forward, strong, determined and a positive attitude? Yeah, I do too.  I admire them

Did I mention that I only have 3 more sleeps?!?!?!

Uhh! I am so jealous of you but so happy for you! I love vacays! I love planning and anticipating a really fun vacay... in fact I think I need to plan one because it really helps me focus and plan for something. Doesn't it you? Take some sweet pictures and share when you get back. This is a great Christmas gift - he did good. Have fun!!! xoxo

just call me jo said...

I hope you enjoy the cruise. Your random post was very entertaining. The weather should be lovely. Arriba! Vaya con dios! Adios, amiga! Rock on!

America's Next Top Mommy said...

Totally love The Frey! A cruise? I'm so jealous! Despite the weather being nice, I still feel like I have cabin fever. A vacation is desperately needed around these parts!

tammy said...

As a former Utahan, I am SO excited for you to leave that crappy Feb. weather and go on your cruise!

Maybe I need a human target in my pantry to keep me from going in there so often.

Mom of 12 said...

I am SO done with the Powell thing! I can't even stand to read the paper. I have just been throwing it away since Sunday...ok, I did take a second to snatch the Kohl's coupons out first.

Sue said...

So excited for you to embark on your first ever cruise..You will love it. The only way to travel.

Take lots of photos so we can all enjoy your trip with you.

You so deserve this get away♥

gigi said...

Random is great!
Have fun and get a start on that tan!

DesertHen said...

I'm so happy that I posted that song...cause I almost didn't. I'm glad you love it, cause I do too!

Have a blast on that cruise!! Soak up some rays, relax and enjoy every moment! Can't wait to hear all about it!

I want to take an Alaskan cruise, but the hubs won't get on board with it. He doesn't like big ships and I hate to fly...we make such a great pair! LOL!

Now I must go watch your latest cooking episode....

Pedaling said...

this is the time to get out of town...for sure.
why didn't i plan something so fun?

wendy said...

So how many sleeps do you have again???
I am just sick sick sick, about the whole Susan Powell case. Sickenly sad.
It is a wonderful feeling when we are happy proud of and for our kids. Mine just have me busting for joy most of the time.
They did well...despite me.
I just wish Matt could still be around to truly SEE and Experience his FULL POTENTIAL. But he's ok. I talk to him everyday.
It is the best thing ever when you go away, and someone can come and stay over at your house. Love that.

Ok, I'm jealous and all that you get to go on this fun trip, but super excited for you. It'll be like a little honeymoon, but without the awkwardness and jitters (tee,hee)

I've never been cruising! I hope you have so much fun!

Love the song. My oldest son became paralyzed at the age of 28 for no apparent reason. He went into the hospital on a Sunday night. I went to the temple early Monday morning and as soon as I pulled in the parking lot, the scripture, "Be Still and Know that I am God", came to my mind and I felt peace.

I need some motivation to get out and run. Ran on the treadmill today. Not the same.

Jamie said...

Don't get me started on the Susan Powell case. dang parental rights....nuff said.
3 more sleeps you are a lucky lady
Have Fun!!!!

Amy said...

I am a little late. So happy cruising.

I am done with the Powell thing. In my humble opinion, the boys are with their Mommy and the sperm donor is being roasted in hell. Nuff said.

It is great that you are so happy about your boys successes.

I need a target like yours. We should expend some ammunition together sometime.
