randomy random part ???...



Hmmm, not much to open with on this one so I will just let the photos and brief descriotions speak for themselves!

Ben was on the treadmill at the gym while I was working out and when I told him I was checking him out the whole time he gave me this smirk...


Well, my sis and lil bro girlfriend took me on my first 5 mile run outside! It has been awhile since I have ran outside but since we are running in a 5 miler (ok they are trying to get me to say yes to the half...) the end of May I needed to get outside! It went well but somewhere between then and 2 days later my foot has been out of wack. I rested it for about a week and last week tried it out again. I can spin until I am blue in the face but cannot run that long! :( Hopefully getting it checked this week...uhg! In spite of that I decided that I needed some new running shoes and after Ben's blessing I have some on their way!



Ben has been doing more chores...


The day before Easter my lil bro came over to help Ben and I clean up the front yard! Holy batman all day workage! We started at 9am, my lil bro had to leave for work at 1230 and Ben and I came inside at 330! All this time was spent in the front yard and most of it was clean up from that snow.ice.flood storm! I really didn't think that it would take that long! We had 11 bags of leaves and two truck loads of branches to burn! I wish I had before and after photos because it looks so much better! Yup, and I got stuck in the back seat while the boys took the front...







Ben was pooped after his therapy session and he opted to just lay on his tummy for a nap...


One day this last week I was out of it...i just sat for like a whole two minutes...


Spring in our backyard...


Last Tuesday we took Diesel to a trainer for 3 weeks...yes he is going to be gone that long and we already miss him! On the way there he decided to jump out the back of the truck while I was going like 55 mph! I saw the whole thing and my heart was beating for a few good days! He has never done this before and has been on several rides. He regretted that jump. I put him in the cab part in the back of the truck and the next thing I knew he was on Ben's lap and then mine. He settled on mine and tucked his head under my arm. Needless to say when we showed up at the trainers there was blood and mud all over the truck and us. We looked like a hot mess! Diesel is fine, we did a full exam on him. He came out with a few scrapes on his legs. Ben has been wanting to call and see how he is doing but were going to put it off for a few days. This patch we cannot get out of the seats...i will try again soon!


We both started on this nasty, dirt tasting fiber...


New recipe! Balsamic roasted veggies and chicken. Lil vinegary but good...


getting my sweat on the spin bike...


Beautiful sunset the other night...


Sometimes how I feel...


Maybe you would like to memorize this verse with Ben. It is one of his new speech assignments...
"But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint."


***Please be praying for Ben and his family. His grandpa passed away last Tuesday morning and they will be having a memorial tomorrow. We were not able to go but will be going down to meet up with the rest of his family in July to spend some time together.

So sorry to hear about Ben's grandpa. Death is so hard... Wish it were easier to handle. I can't believe that about your dog, and the irony that you were driving to training! Yard work is a huge pain and I can't believe how much you make me jealous with those hit body workouts you do! ;)

YUP, I think you have joined the "drink grass tasting stuff" club. While our drink is a different brand, it deffenatly tastes like grass. I will be trusting for Ben and his family, especially Ben, since you guys couldn't make the service. I love you, Marion

You don't know me, I don't know you, but I follow your blog because someone I know does...

Anyhow, try hydrogen pyroxide on the stain. Try dish soap too. I have two kids who get messy nosebleeds and those two items have helped me a lot.

May God bless your growth every day.

I wanted to commment, but I see MBee already has. Hydrogen peroxide is great at getting out blood stains. Good luck with everything!

Cassie beat me to it! Hyrogen peroxide on the blood stains. Dab some on, or pour it on and work it into the fabric. Let it bubble the stain up and out. It will probably take a little work, but I bet you'll barely be able to see the stain when you're done, if at all! Glad Mr. Pup is ok! Silly dog!
