“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31.

A Little of This & That

I really don't have anything pressing or inspiring to post. Just a little of this and a little of that.
I had a great run today! I ran 5.2 miles at a 9:30 pace.  It was beautiful out, 60 degrees and sunny.  Feels like an early spring day. I've been taking it kind of easy this week and have kept my daily mileage under 4 miles everyday, though today I just did NOT want to stop.  I have a 10 miler planned for Saturday and I'm praying the weather stays nice.

It finally arrived!  Our new couch!
It took us almost 6 months to decide on a couch that we both liked and that could also withstand 3 rough and tumble boys.  Our old couches were so nasty that when we had company over we would keep the lights turned down low so that they couldn't see "dirty-nasty" in all it's glory.  A word of advice for anyone buying furniture B.C.(Before Children), do some research.  When we first brought Dirty-Nasty home, she was beautiful!  She was a  light, sage green with soft cotton fabric and big overstuffed cushions.  We loved her...... until Tyler was born.  The first time his projectile spit-up hit the back of her cushions we knew we were in trouble! No matter what we did the spot would not come out.  Flash forward a few years, I woke up one morning at 5am and found Tyler, then 3yrs old, sitting on the couch eating a stick of butter, his reward to himself for the lovely artwork he had created on the couch out of butter.  Two whole sticks of butter MASHED into the couch!  We started tying the fridge shut after that!  That was just two of the many incidents and accidents that have happened on that couch.  Oh we have had Dirty-Nasty professionally cleaned several times but she was never the same.  The last straw was 6months ago when Sebastian had the stomach bug....just use your imagination.....YUCK!!
So this time we went with leather.  Hubby called me at work today around lunch and the delivery guys had just dropped it off.  I can't wait to see it actually in the house.  Would it be wrong to make the kids sit on the floor from now on? LOL! Just kidding........but really?

Today is the end of my work week! I am going to take advantage of the spa g/c that Hubby and the boys gave me tomorrow.  I'm going in for a sugar scrub body polish and a one hour deep tissue massage. OOOOhhhh I can't wait!  Then tomorrow night is "Ladies Night In"!  This is a night when several of my girlfriends and I meet and one of the ladies' houses and eat, talk, play games and just hang out with no kids.  We do it once every month or two.  Will be a good day!

I am really enjoying reading all of your blogs!  I have found inspiration, encouragement, and great tips on running and life!  I hope you all are having a wonderful week!!

*Oh almost forgot! I have been reconstructing my blog. Do you like?  I love green!  I am working on a design for the header but have not had time to finish it yet....so stay tuned! ;)
I really don't know what I'm doing and am surprised I haven't messed anything up too bad.

Grace and peace,
