So Melanie wanted a new post. Here goes.

I'm training for the Bolder Boulder (Memorial Day Monday), and it's going okay. I have a training plan, and I'm still doing step class and abs class on Fridays. I am less than pleased with my body, so I need this to make me feel better. My goal is to lose some weight and shrink my waistline. I am hoping that 6 months of abs class will strengthen my core muscles and make the summer clothes look cuter on me. :)

I have to work this training in around Geoff's training for his marathon (May 3). I'm excited to see him run again, and the bonus is getting see someplace new in Colorado. His race is in Ft Collins (which the Stanleys & Gustafsons saw), but we're only staying a night. It's a good town for beer lovers (which is not me), and it's supposed to be beautiful.

The night hours seem shorter to me. With trips to the gym, and bible study, I feel like I'm not at home at night much. A lot of my shows I watch have wrapped up, so I'm left watching Lost and House. Fringe will be back in April, then nothing until summer (Burn Notice & Psych). This is allowing me to watch some of the DVDs I got for my birthday (Psych Season 2, Angel, X-Files).

I'm also trying to read, right now I'm almost done People Are Idiots & I Can Prove It (Larry Winget). Reading Larry's books feel like conviction. Essentially he says stop saying you'll do something or you want something and do it already!

The kids are good. Healthy, but driving me nuts! Thankfully our winter has been tame, so we have a lot of opportunities to get outside, but last week was a wash because the kids took turns running a fever. Friday though we got out to Berry Park and what a gem that place was. The boys loved it. Amy & Caley met us, so I was thrilled to have an adult to talk to.

I had a hankering to watch The Prestige, and to my luck it came on tv the other night. (Yeah I own it, but I didn't want to put it in) So I'll close with a quote from that.

Cutter: Now you're looking for the secret. But you won’t find it because of course, you're not really looking. You don't really want to work it out. You want to be fooled.
