Random Acts of Kindness

Am I the only one who is upset at the fact that is takes a MASS FLIPPING KILLING for people to do random acts of kindness?  Why can't people just pay it forward on a daily basis... ALL THE TIME?  I mean, yes... it is great and wonderful and all and any act of kindness is surely a start, but I am just bother that is took the death of so many babies and wonderful people to light a fire under the asses of so many selfish people in this world.  Make's me sick to my stomach.  Hug your children a little tighter EVERY night.

And trying to get your kid on the news or noticed by a famous person  because you are using them to do a random act of kindness ... That is just messed up.

Anyhow,  my vent for the day.

HAPPY NEW YEARS everyone.  Here's to a 2013 filled with HOPE,  LOVE,  KINDNESS and HAPPINESS.

I leave you with a pic of our fabulous snow day yesterday.

Merry Christmas

Quick, very quick recap.

I have not worked out in a LONG time.  I am sure I have gained back 1/2 my 25lb loss.
I am a very busy mom with 3 lovely daughters who keep me on my toes with their smarts and activities.
Halle... Decided BAND was not for her.
Audrie... a Kindergartner reading at a high 2-3 grade level and doing 1st grade math.
Katlynn... Sweet as pie and loved by everyone.
Dave...busy bee... working all the time, but tries to play when he can.
Me... applying for jobs (I actually did my first interview in over 8 years and was offered the job today), but declined it because the schedule didn't fit my needs to provide for the kids.  I will probably be put on the sub list though,  so it's a foot in the door at a district that is hard to get into.  Taking classes again come January and also thinking of applying PT to 24 hour fitness.

Still getting out house in order, paying off things we had to pay to renovate the house before we moved in, and just living day to day.

I'm busy... that's the only thing I can say.  Still planning on doing the half marathon, although I am certain, I will only be running a small fraction of it.

But I am content.  Do I wish I hadn't gained back some weight.  If course, but I am not unhappy... just busy.

Here's a couple pics from our last trip to the Happiest Place on Earth for 2012.  We've deceived not to renew for 2013.  The kids are busy with school and sports or activities and we prefer to save that money for family travel.  The cost of passes for our family could pay for a lot of a really nice cruise or a trip back East.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year friends.  See you in 2013.
