    Amy-Glad the surgery went well. Sorry you are in pain. Hope someone is taking care of you while you recover. Feel better soon!

    Lesli- 5k's are so fun. I try to do at least one per year. In college my roommate and I did them almost every weekend. I like them because they are the easiest 3 miles you will ever run. With so many people you are distracted from the fact that you are running. Plus they support a good cause.

    Get Well Soon Amy!!! Hopefully you have some help with your DDs. I had a CS, but didn't have kids running around so it was probably a lot easier for me.

    Eliann-We were not planning for a baby at this time. We're hoping to start trying for a fall 2012 baby. But a May baby wouldn't have been the end of the world. A sigh of relief with the BFN, but a little sad too.

    Leslie-I've ran a 5K before. You should do fine. My department does one every year and I'm thinking about running again this year. I had planned on running the Tunnel to Towers race in NYC this year, but 1-I was lazy all summer and haven't ran in months, and 2-when I thought I might be PG, I put off signing up for it and now it's too late. I'm a little remorseful about that (

    AFM-not to much to report. Had a pretty good weekend. Decided to clean out Erin's play area and upgrade it from baby to toddler status. Took away the gate and all the little rattles and such. Bought a table and chairs set and organized bins for coloring, puzzles etc.
    Tried to go outside for a little bit but the mosquitoes are just INSANE. I guess due to all the rain and flooding from the hurricane and last week's storms. Luckily I had some things to do downstate and it's not nearly as bad there. So Erin was able to enjoy the beautiful weather a little.

    Thumbs down **child death mentioned**

    I hope this doesn't upset anyone....give your children an extra snuggle and a kiss today.....


    we just found out that one of the babies that goes to the same daycare as my dd, died, he was only 4 months old, at this time it's labeled as SIDS. I never met the mother, but I have seen all 3 of her children pretty much everyday when I go to pick up my dd. DD absolutely LOVES babies, and she always helped my babysitter (Darci) with the babies (there were only 2 little babies) Darci is a good friend (and neighbor) of mine, she does in-home daycare so she is the only one there.....needless to say she is VERY close to the children in her care, she is having a rough time of this....

    it is just so sad, I don't know how a mother could get through something like this. I also just found out that the mother is actually dating my husband's cousin (we live in a really small town)

    anyway, say a prayer for the mother, and also for my friend Darci, to be able to make it through the viewing/funeral tomorrow for sweet baby Tyler.....like I said I can't even imagine the hurt

    I'm pretty excited! I'm definitely going to keep doing them, and hopefully work up to a 10K or a half marathon! My friend and I go running quite a bit and we are getting so much better at it! We ran 3 miles last night and I was pushing my 35 pound dd in a stroller....NOT a jogging stroller, so I got quite the arm workout LOL

    and yes it is for a GREAT cause, they are doing a whole weekend of it http://roperapplefest.blogspot.com/ including a dutch oven dinner with Switchfoot doing live music, then a breakfast after the 5K, hot air balloon rides, zip line, apple pressing, etc.....and all the proceeds go to Primary Childrens Hospital here in Utah, for a family here in town who lost their little girl to a heart condition http://www.katerosenvall.blogspot.com/

    anyway, I'm super excited!

    Leslie-what a terrible sad story. I'm keeping them in my T&P's

    I just heard a Switchfoot song on my ride in to work. Dark Horses I think it's called. Really good. Should be a really fun day!

    AFM-Erin had another tough day in Daycare. But we had a parent/teacher conference last night and everyone there says she is improving and it WILL get better. So we just hang on I guess.

    Have you ever seen the movie A Walk to Remember? One of my absolute FAVORITE movies, most of the music on that movie is Switchfoot I absolutely LOVE them! I am so super duper excited....now I just have to talk my dh into going with me (he gets back from TX tomorrow afternoon)

    it WILL get better for her at daycare! What kind of problems are they/she having? It's a great sign that she's improving, but so so hard on the parents!

    AFM-I've started a new vitamin regimen that is supposed to give you more energy and help you to tone up and lose fat, not muscle. I just started today, and I already feel absolutely AMAZING! And the great thing is that they have products you can take while pregnant and/or nursing! I became a distributor of it to get a discount on products lol

    and last night at Zumba was AMAZING! I don't know if I ever told you, but I took over from my original Zumba teacher (she moved out of town) so up to this point I was doing all the same routines from when she taught and I was getting super bored with them (not sure if the class was, but I was) and last night I taught 2 BRAND NEW routines....I was so scared to teach them but I did great on both of them! I was concentrating so much on the new moves though that I wasn't really able to cue everyone very good, but that will come once I get more familiar with it. My friend (who is running the 5K with me) and I ran/walked to Zumba (about 1.5 miles) then did Zumba, then ran back home.....whew I was tired but it felt GREAT! I am so excited for my 5K

    something funny too, the other night while we were running I was telling my friend about this 10K they do up in SLC called the "dirty dash" http://www.facebook.com/#!/video/vid...50384090425088 that I wanted to try next year....and then the next day realized I would be huge pregnant this time next year lol, so that won't happen ha ha

    Hey gals!

    Lesli~ How terrible for your friend and childcare provider! I'm so sorry. So heartbreaking.

    Can I just say, your activity level amazes me! I wish I did a quarter of what you do!

    Deidre~ I'm sorry Erin is having a tough time adjusting to childcare. I'm glad to hear she's improving, but I know how hard it is to watch your child struggle. It'll get better!

    AFM~ I'm pretty much completely off pain meds (yay!) except for the occasional ibuprofen. Now I just notice that I get tired quickly. While being in the hospital and having surgery wasn't fun and I wouldn't wish it on anyone, it has been kind of nice to HAVE to stop and rest. I feel like before this happened, I was running in about 20 different directions at the same time.
    ~Amy~

    Can I have a bite?

    believe me I haven't always been this active....before Savanna I was pretty active, but I never really enjoyed running before until recently and I really do believe that it is Zumba that got me excited to work out again

    YAY so glad you are feeling better, although you are still tired, you kinda have to expect that after having surgery! I hope dh has been helping out that is great that you are feeling good about having to stop and rest, sometimes you need that

    Leslie - Tell me about these vitamins??? By any chance is it Shaklee brand? My MIL and SIL are distributors and I take there multivitamin, but I'll admit I'm not consistant. Which reminds me......

    Amy-Glad you are feeling better. And, please, for all of us momma who can't....Take advantage of the rest time!!!

    I tend to get lazy during the summer, plus I like cold wheat beers in the evening so summer is my gain weight period. Now that fall is coming, I tend to run more often and switch to wine if I choose to have a drink at night.

    Erin's been struggling with separation anxienty. Big time. She cries at the sight of the school, and was not her happy little self the first week. She's still crying, but does settle down after a while and even napped there yesterday. She also seems to be happier at home, but still wants to not be left alone at bed time. We've had to sit with her in her room until she falls asleep a few times.

    nope it's Advocare....here is my linky if you want to look at it https://www.advocare.com/11094545/default.aspx the girl who started me on it is actually a girl I "met" from this site, we both have daughters on our Jan 2009 board.....I am trying out the MNS MAX E vitamins, Catalyst, Spark, and Slam

    poor Erin and poor mommy my dd has been having separation anxiety also, but my babysitter tells me before I have even left the driveway she has forgotten and goes back to her normal self, but it really is so hard to leave your child when they cry and scream for you when you leave she has just started doing this recently, she was in daycare from 7 weeks old until 9 months old when I got laid off from my previous job....I stayed home with her for 7 months while I was out of work, then last year in May I started this job I'm currently at and the first week was bad, but then she was just fine, until recently I don't know why all of a sudden she has a hard time when I leave.

    sorry for that long story, I just want you to know I know how hard it is to leave, but I also know it will get better! hopefully she will make some new friends and she will be excited to go and see them!
