13.1

 I'm so proud of Mr. Mayer. He started running in Aug. of last year. Seriously...who starts running in August in Oklahoma?! Oh, it's 210 outside....I think I'll go jog! I thought he had lost his mind. I am not a runner. I admire runners because I know it's hard. I have tried and it's just not a sport that is for me. He started running in August and ran his first 5K in September. Followed by a 15K in November. Holy balls that race was C-O-L-D!! Anyway, yesterday he did his first half marathon. He finished in 2hrs 24min. He has been doing the races with one of my best friends, Kristen. She did the half with him yesterday and finished in 2hrs 26min. I am so proud of both of them. Kristen's husband Brian isn't a runner either so he has become my finish line cheering partner. The kids LOVE it. Mr. Mayer's cousin has asked when he is doing the marathon. Brian and I have some opinions of where we would like the marathon to be. I mean, if we have to go we should be able to pick the location. We spent the weekend with Brian and Kristen. We had such a good time. On the way home a strange phenomenon happened....the Dudes slept~in a car!!! That rarely happens. They were some worn out kids.


 See! It really happened. For 2 hours they slept!! It was glorious. And, this morning they even slept in a little. Do you hear the choir of Angels singing?!

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs. Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven. Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine!  She came over today to make some pasta. While s

Potty Mouth

You would think I would be referring to myself or Mr. Mayer. But, no. I'm talking about the precocious little girl that lives in this house. "I cleaned my room damn good." Wait. What? That was the sentence Diva told me a few weeks ago when I asked her if she had cleaned her room. I was in shock. Mr. Mayer was stifling a laugh. Diva was dead serious. A few days after that she came downstairs and told me to "Tell those damn boys to leave my damn toys alone." Apparently her brother's were messing with her Barbies. We have also had the occasional "damn it" when she drops something or spills something. It was super embarrassing when we were at Target and she dropped a toy in the toy department and said "damn it." Thankfully there was no one around to hear her. Diva's um...creative (?) vocabulary started as soon as she started speaking. She has always used big words, whether she knew what they meant or not. Mr. Mayer and I are totally

So, Good News Is I Didn't Pee Myself...

Seriously, this is exciting news. I have had 3 kids. I have had 3 gigantic kids. Two of those giants were vaginal deliveries. #3 decided to be spontaneous and insist on a C-section. Yeah, that was fun. So, the exciting result of 3 kids that NO ONE EVER TALKS ABOUT?! You pee yourself. It's true. I leaked a little after I had Diva. After twins? I pee myself. What causes it? Laughing, coughing (bronchitis is a death sentence) , sneezing, jumping, running, hop scotch, jump rope and any other jarring activity. It's embarrassing. And, before anyone says "Oh, just do kegel's. It will stop that." I've been doing kegel's since 2007. It's not helping. I still pee.  So, what happened that I didn't pee myself? I would LOVE to tell you. I went to Body Pump before dawn this morning. Half way during class the instructor had us do a move that was terrifying and caused me to panic a little. Well, a lot. A whole lot. She expected the class to jump on and off of o
