Back in the saddle again...

A lot has happened since my last post in July! Sorry to keep you all waiting in suspense for my next post! All 2 of you!!!

Ok, you all (and by all I mean 2) know that I signed up for my second event with Team Challenge. The next race is in December in VEGAS BABY! As a side note ~ it's my second TC (Team Challenge) event and the second time I will be going to a brand new place! I know, shocker, I've never been to Las Vegas. I also applied to be a mentor for this event and I GOT IT! WooHoo. I told Matt that I would be pretty busy last weekend. He asked, "For the rest of the day?' My reply was, "NO, THE REST OF THE YEAR!"
I'm really looking forward to being a mentor. I've sent my first official email introducing myself to my "metees". And training and conference calling starts on August 29th. This time I want to run at least 6 miles. Then maybe by my third event I'll be running the entire 13.1 miles. By the end of the year (when I reach my fundraising goal) I will have raised almost $10,000 for the CCFA. That thought blows my mind.

Please consider making a donation to the CCFA. Someone you know probably suffers from one of these diseases and you don't even know about it. If you know of a company looking for a tax deduction for the end of the year, send them my way! 100% of your Team Challenge donation is Tax Deductible. What's not to like about that?

Even MORE exciting than that...

wait for it...

My youngest daughter, Baylee, is home for the school year. There isn't a large enough font in this program to express my happiness! So I've been doing the mom thing again: Registering her for school, tracking down the girl's coach to find out the scoop on the sports available at her Jr. High, school shopping, and staying up waaaaay later that I'm used to, just so I can spend as much time with her as possible! For those of you that don't know, I have 2 daughters. Their dad and I share custody of them and sometimes they live with me and visit him - and sometimes they live with him and visit me. Being away from them is one of the hardest things I'll ever do, but we are both their parents and they need us both equally. I wish more divorced parents would realize that.

Anyway, back to me, me, ME! I've also been kicking around the idea of catering again and actually done a few events. So much fun, but so time consuming - especially because I work full time too. I think I'll submit a request to officially extend the number of hours in a day...
