If I could, I would

create a time machine.  It would be a multifunctional piece of engineering goodness.  Not only would it allow me to go back in time (perhaps one of the unwritten rules of blogging, so my apologies if I have committed the utmost blogging crime!), but it would also manufacture time.

Sounds great, huh? 

Yeah, it would collect all those little bits of time that don’t really allow for anything productive to take place, and store them all together into a big batch of time.  It’s sorta like the defragment feature on your computer.

Sadly, or ironically, it would take too much time to create this fancy-schmancy do-job, so I guess I’ll just take the few minutes I have here and give a quick update.  Anyway…I’m still here.  We’ve been having lots of fun and I hope to post some pictures soon.  And I do have to commit the timestamp treachery again because I really want to post my hubby’s birthday wishes on his actual birthday….which was last Thursday! 😦  I’m sure he appreciates the time I’ve spent with him much more than time I’d have spent finishing my writing about him!

On the fitness front, I did weigh in this week, and was very pleased with my 4.2lb loss!  I’ve gotten out running about 3 times this week, which isn’t saying much because I can’t go very far just yet.  But I did register for the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day, so now I’ve got me some motivation.

And just an FYI, not that I anticipate my absence will cause major trauma in the lives of many, but I know that in a few short weeks I will be quite fickle in my posts.  Between preparing for our presentation in San Antonio at the National Writing Project annual meeting, and getting things around for heading back into the classroom, I’m sure my plate will be heaping.  Which means, if I am here…it’s probably because I’m putting off completing something else and would rather share pictures and write about the fun stuff going on in my life! 🙂

I’ll leave you with a little shot of one of our recent outings.  There’s a new indoor playground at one of the local churches.  Calder had a great time and we’re hoping to get back there again before too long!


Since I don’t have much today, head over to Stacy’s to see what others have created this week!

  1. Oh, I would hop on that time machine with you in a second! Or a machine that just creates more time in each day…that would also be good.

    Wishing you luck in the upcoming weeks and heading back to school! We’ll look for you when you can get a free minute!

  2. Hang in there…it really gets a lot easier once the kiddos get a little older. As busy as I am right now (which is REALLY busy), I feel like I’m in a pretty good state with the boys right now…Everyone I know who has kids around 17 mos apart says that first year is the hardest and I can attest to that and see why it will get better!

    AWESOME loss!!! Good for you! You are doing great…especially with the busy schedule you’ve got! And, I just looked up the Turkey Trot for our area and I think I may join you! What a way to get in a bunch of activity points for Turkey Day! Our “race” is 8 miles…not that I will be expecting to even place…the winner of the women’s group last year did it in 45 minutes!!! Yikes! Um, it will probably take me at least twice that long!

  3. Oh, I so wish I had a time machine, too. It would be so nice! That looks like one fun indoor playground. I bet Calder was having the time of his life. 🙂

    Great job on your weight loss, too. Way to go!
