Time For a Post? :)

I suppose it's about time for a post, perhaps? Lol. Wow, the xc season I mentioned in the last post has already gone. It was a FANTASTIC season. Personally, I didn't run as I'd like, but our girl's team was GOOD!! Let me mention the top five AMAZING girls who won so many meet for us- Julie, Danielle, Catherine, Martha, Kendra. They were all super fast to begin with, and they improved dramatically. Girls, ya'll are amazing. Another thing, Leslie? Shanda? WAY TO GO, beginners at the head of the pack! I'm so proud of ya'll.
So what's happening now? I am about to run the St. Jude. I am very excited that Mrs. Heather is coming. Oh, after the race I will end my carbonated fast. I have not had one drink of carbonation since around the beginning of the season. I plan to drink a big coke after I run. :)
I am still crocheting, knitting a bit, sewing, trying to finish Christmas presents!! My closet is full of presents. My room overfloweth with yarn. Yarn in rolls, yarn in a sack, yarn crocheted into animals, yarn scraps, ect. Guess what is on my Christmas list? Yarn, actually. lol. I do use it up quickly.
So Tiny, here is a post for you. All you people who check my blog and are always watching for a post, this is for you. lol. I'll try and start blogging a little more.

Finally Posting...

Yes, I am finally posting, and I'm warning you that this is going to be a random post! Mac and Me-C, I am sorry for not helping you with the award on your blog. Cassia, I'm sorry for not mailing you any patterns! I just read ya'll's comments.

As most of you know, xc is over for the summer. Very sad. But it is also a good thing, because we are going to be very busy! I'm still crocheting/knitting a LOT. Right now I am working on Rhino the hamster from the movie Bolt. I love that movie. Does anyone need a pattern for anything? Go to It has tons of patterns for EVERYTHING. Toys, hats, jackets, blankets, dog clothes, scarfs, flowers, dishrags, ect. Oh, and it's all free. It can teach you any new stitch-even how to knit or crochet!

Yesterday Julie and I babysat for the first time. I mean, we babysat someone who was not our brother or sister. We babysat a six month old baby named Sarah. She was a BUTTERBALL, and the best baby you could ever ask to babysit. We took care of her for three hours and she did not cry once. Julie and I have had a lot of experience with babies (Leah and Sam) but the last baby was four years ago! When we first got Sarah we weren't sure what to do...I mean, what do you do with a happy baby who simply sucks on a pacifier and stares around? Lol. We read her books, changed her diaper three times-and checked it twice (Mama found this very funny), we rocked her while she took a nap, and bounced her. This is what we did to "bounce" her. One of us would hold her on our laps and bounce her while she jumped on her chubby little legs. The other would sit on the floor and bounce themselves to make Sarah laugh. All while singing, "Bouncy Bouncy Bouncy!" to a catchy little tune. Sarah loved it, and our arms got a workout! Babysitting job number one went well.

Alright, now I need to go help Mac and Me-C, and send Cassia some patterns. Good-bye till next time..would could be a while...:)

Thank you for the award, Myriam! Here it is.

The rules for accepting this award are:
1. Post the award.
2. Thank and mention the person who gave you the award. Thank you again, Myriam. You are very creative. And I heard that you are doing the xc team? Hurray!
3. Pass the award on to seven bloggers whom you think embody the spirit of the Kreativ Blogger Award. Well, I think this award has circulated to just about everyone. Let's see, I'm going to award Courtney, Anna Beth, Mrs. Heather (if she cares to do this, lol), Margaret, Martha, Hannah D. and Sarah D. All of these people are very creative.
4. Name seven things about yourself that others don’t know. Scroll down for that.
5. Don’t forget to notify the seven Kreativ Bloggers about their award and post a link to their blog. I don't do links, but I will leave comments.

Okay, seven things about me that you didn't know. (most people who read my blog know a LOT about me, so I may have to come up with some strange things. lol)

1. I do not really like to play games. I rather be crocheting. As Clay says, "She's too old for
games" (this is not true, it's a joke. lol)
2. I do not like math
3. When I was little (4 or 5) I wanted long hair. I had short hair and bangs. I have not gotten a major haircut since, just trims.
4. I was (and still am) a TERRIBLE medicine taker. I am so happy pills were invented, although at first I was terrified to take one.
5. I once knitted dog hair. It didn't work very well.
6. I cannot sleep if there is any noise. I don't sleep with my fan, even in the summer, because it makes a very faint clicking noise.
7. I USED to like cheddar cheese. Now I cannot stand it.

Yay, I thought up seven things! That took a while. I have one more thing to say,
HURRAY HURRAY HURRAY XC IS ALMOST HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now about Tiny (Catherine)
We got to spend the night with her Friday night!!! It was a lot of fun. She showed us her room, her bow and her shoe polishing set. We went outside and climbed on her wonderful climbing tree, then played on hay bales. She also showed us her dog Tip, her running trail, and some albums of her when she was little!! We LOVED looking at them.
We got in bed pretty early and talked and giggled until about 11:00. (John David, whose room is right next to Catherine's, was not too happy about this) The next morning (we got up at around 7:00) we climbed the tree and hay bales again, then played card games. It wasn't really lunch time, but we packed up a picnic and ate on the hay bales. It was a BEAUTIFUL day. Thank you so much, Tiny.
Oh, and I must post something about Andrew! I gave him a crocheted monkey who he named Cookie. Cookie went everywhere Andrew went. Andrew got a Valentine's card with ten dollars with it. What did he do? He bought us all a cookie with the works at Vanese's! Thank you Mrs. Misty, for taking us there. They have some of the BEST pizza in the world.
We had a GREAT time. Thanks Catherine, this rare post is for you (lol), who faithfully checks my not-very-updated-blog. ♥ (by the way, press alt and three on the numbers only keyboard and you get a heart!) ♥

Long Run

Today I did my weekly long run for my half training. This week was twelve. I got through about ten minutes ago! Running on the treadmill for a long run is not too bad, since we have a TV and fan blowing on you. But at the end the bottom of my feet were burning and I was ready to be through! It took a one hour Duggar show and two and a half Full Houses. I finished at one hour and fifty-five minutes. Now I'm through with my long run for this week!! Next week is thirteen miles, then eight (to take a break before the race) then the RACE!
The race plan has slightly changed. We were not sure how big this race was going to be, or how well blocked off, so Julie and I were going to run with Daddy. I was not so sure about this. I wasn't so sure I could keep up with Daddy and Julie (not that we were going to run terribly fast). I knew Daddy would never leave me, but Daddy asked if I wanted to run with Mama, which meant running right under two hours (which I have done twice). It was finally decided that I get to run by myself, which is what I prefer. Not that I don't like running with Mama or Daddy, I just don't like having to "keep up" with anyone. In a race, that is. I love running with a group in cross-country practice! So there's my running plan, I hope that was not too boring. What time I am going for? Other than under two hours, I have no clue. I forgot to say that Daddy and Julie drove the course. Daddy said it was really hilly. He described them as San Fransisco hills!! Wow!!! So we'll see. Happy long running!
