Here's just a snapshot of what's been going on: I have been to California and back...twice Work is busy but rewarding as ever … Continue reading August In Review
Time is a funny thing. Sometimes it creeps by (like when you're on the cusp of something really exciting happening), and other times you really cannot fathom how it has disappeared. I distinctly remember sitting around thinking "Wow, Charles' July 3rd Birthday is just two months away." Now I'm not quite sure how it's come, … Continue reading Last time I checked, it was June?

I was so pumped to go to the track … Continue reading Gear Review: The RooSport

So I am excited to welcome a new addition to our home: Yes, we finally bit the bullet and bought a treadmill. The Unexpected Circumstances Leading to Purchase So who would have guess that my husband who is "not a runner" (according to his constant mantra) was shockingly the impetus for the purchase.
