Return of the Sorta-Single Mom!

September is always hard. To have a firefighter as a husband is almost a full time job just waiting for him to be home these scorching hot months then add to it a hunting season and it's like I'm putting our marriage on hold for an Archery deer tag. Sept and October should be better but the FFP has an onslaught of classes he would like to take that will take him out of town and re-arranging his schedule even more. I have a feeling that I'm going to be spending money on sitters left and right this fall.

School starts on Wed and I have to go get school supplies and food for the kids for their lunches. Luckily I'm dropping them off at Grandpa Camp for the day. Hopefully I can talk dad into bringing the kiddos down about the time Chris gets home so they can get settled into bed before their first day. Although I'm sure they will want to be at school scouting out their classes and classmates at 5pm with everyone else.

Marathon training starts tomorrow. I'll be living and breathing and eating my way to Decembers CIM starting line. My hope is to train for a 4 hour marathon. Not sure if that is realistic or a pipe dream. We will see.

I'll upload first day of school pics if I can get them. I will be manning the coffee and cookie table for PTA Wed. morning at 7:30am until 8:30am encouraging new parents to get involved!

Hi Darling! Just catching up. You can soooooooo do a 4 hour marathon. I'm so bummed about my injury, but will try the tennis ball thing tonight. I've done it with my back (and bum) before.

I didn't know your hubs was a FF. My grandfather and father were (now both retired).

I need to add you to my side bar. Don't know why I didn't before.
