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?!

Adulting is Hard

It's no secret that being an adult is hard. Being a parent is really hard, especially with the bombardment of social media and other outlets. Everyone has an opinion of what you should or should not be doing, saying, eating, etc. It's exhausting when you have average "normal" by society standards children. Throw in a little boy who is viewed as a little different and things get 10x harder.

A few weeks ago my favorite musician, P!nk, accepted the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music awards. Her speech that evening struck a cord with me. At the time I could not place my finger on why it affected me so much, but this morning something happened, and I understood.

I have made no secret that #3 is different than other kids. He is loving, affectionate, empathetic, and will stand up for anyone he thinks has been wronged. He loves Minecraft, his laser guns, Five Nights at Freddy's, and the color blue. He also loves Queen Elsa, having his fingernails painted and we…

7 Year Itch...

Things are changing y'all.... About six weeks ago I applied for a part time therapist job, on a whim. A month went by and I had not heard anything about the job, I assumed it wasn't going to happen and carried on with life. Then I got a phone call asking me to come in for an interview! Over the course of the month between applying for the job and the interview I had talked myself out of wanting to do it. Cause, that's what I do. I went into the interview thinking it would just be good practice and I had zero intentions of pursuing the position.  Last year I applied for a job I really wanted. It was somewhere I had always wanted to work and was so excited about the prospect. I was told that the job was mine, then I was emailed and told that a former employee had emailed and said she might be moving back to Tulsa and they were going to give the position to her. I was devastated. Then a few weeks later I was emailed again offering me the job again. Needless to say I declined b…

Just Keep Swimming...

Somewhere around my third phone conversation with my insurance company today I hit my wall, hard. I'm not fit for human contact today. I have cried with my dog, I have cried in the lobby of my kids school, through doctors appointments, and in the car. I will probably cry again before I go to bed tonight. My coping mechanisms are crying and chocolate. We are currently out of chocolate.
This weekend was epically bad. #1 and went to a cheer competition in Dallas, Texas for the weekend. We were just there last month, staying in the same hotel. Saturday was day one of the competition and a long day. We left our hotel early and came back around 8:30. We were exhausted and showers and bed were needed. #1 and I were both in bed asleep by 9:30. Around 11:40 a cheer mom calls my cell phone and asks me to come down to the lobby. I get a sweatshirt and pants on and start making my way downstairs before I even thought about it. It was an automatic response. Halfway down I decided to look at my…
