Moving and Shaking!

Things have been extremely busy around here, hence the long lapse in my posts lately.

I think that my family has signed up to be professional movers because we are moving AGAIN. This will be the second time that we have moved in the last seven months. I am getting pretty good at packing boxes, picking out paint colors, new carpet and remodeling. We have now remodeled 4 houses in the last 5 years and I know that this one will not be our last. Unlike our last move Kinley and Hadley are feeling pretty excited about moving this time. We have painted their new bedroom pink with a raspberry accent wall and their playroom is absolutely adorable. It has pink walls with a white chair rail, under the chair rail we painted chocolate brown on the walls with big pink polka dots, it is too cute! This house will be a good move for us. It has enough bedrooms for all of the kid’s and a large loft for them to hang out in. Once we get moved in I will post some photos of their playroom.

With the craziness of packing, painting and training for a marathon I have had very little energy left to do much else. I am pretty much wiped out right now. Last Saturday I ran 14 miles at Wilder and I struggled during the last 4 miles with some painful IT band issues. Right now I am trying to prepare for my next long run which will be 18 miles. The run is a week away and I am already having so much anxiety over the thought of it. Training six days a week has been a huge commitment and there are days when I feel like quiting but my wonderful new Team in Training friends inspire me to keep going! I am also very inspired by the cause and I often have to remember why I am doing this in the first place. When I cross that finish line I will have ran a marathon in memory of my loved ones who have lost their lives to cancer and I know that will be an amazing feeling!

So with everything going on right now I have been slow to post on my blog. I am exhausted daily but I am enjoying life to the fullest!
