Here is post season run down of what has been going on in this house.
Hockey StuffAs I mentioned, the hockey season is almost over. This season was pretty tough for all of the kids. Our hockey association is in one of the country's toughest districts. We are small and have a very small talent pool playing against very large, power house associations. The wins were very few and far between but the kids had lots of fun and that is all that truly matters.
My oldest just finished his final PeeWee season and will be moving to Bantams next year. My middle has one more playoff game and will be rounding out his Squirt Career. And then there is my Hockey Diva, she finished her girls season and has three games left with her boys team (Yes, our 8 year old is on 2 teams. It didn't sound crazy until I typed it).
House StuffWe bought one! Or I should say we committed to buying one as the ink is not yet dry. Chubby Hubby reminded me that 8 days ago we were only passively looking. A chain of was set into motion because I shared a news story on my Facebook timeline regarding the lowest available housing stock in 10 years. I had a few comments from friends saying they would keep their eyes open for us. Then I received a text message from two different friends saying that a mutual friend was selling their house soon. The seller contacted me through Facebook, I asked to see it before they listed it, and the rest was history. Long story short, social media is more than just funny memes and political banter.
So now that we bought a house, we need to sell a house. I wasn't overly stressed out about it until I just found out today that I need to replace my furnace. It had to be the most expensive thing in the house! Nothing like having a major thing die at the worst possible time. I am praying I don't need to sell one of my children to pay for house repairs before we get out of here.
Running StuffThe image below is my confirmation that I need to be locked away. I should not be allowed to access a computer or credit card to sign up for things. October 2016, I will be running Twin Cities Marathon! It makes perfect sense to add training for an endurance event while we try to move, juggle multiple sports schedules for 3 kids, and work full time. Well it made sense to me and several of my buddies are just as crazy as I am. It may not be pretty but I will get it done!
Training started this past Saturday by doing the Couch to 5K Program-day 1, week 1. I hope to be laughing soon at how hard ONE MINUTE of running is.
I personally have been wanting to adopt a clean (er) eating lifestyle but I have been very resistant to making the change for absolutely no good reason. This change needs to happen, as I am fighting to get my health back on a positive track and it is critical as I watch my husband's mobility decline.
We are starting small and working toward this way of living and I think if I slowly adopt it, I will be more inclined to make permanent changes. With that said, I am on day 7 no candy, sweets, or pop. I think I can come out of hiding now, I was crazy for the first few days with out sugar!
Stay tuned for a review of this book and updates as we try to implement the changes.
That is all I have for now! Off to go pack boxes!!
