This past weekend I ran the Dam to Dam, America’s largest 20K, which I signed up for back in March. This was the first race other than a 5K that I have ever competed in, and it was such a blast. The adrenaline was pumping as the 7,000 runners gathered for the start. It have never experienced anything like it.
I feel like I’m barely getting by right now.
It’s not that dramatic, probably, but “normal” is not what I’m feeling lately.
I’m trying to function at a high level all day long, but it’s hard.
I guess this is what it means to be a mom. For me, a working mom. And a wife.
Happy June! We’re excited to introduce you to our new friend, Brianna, today. When I first saw her illustrations on Facebook, I thought, “We HAVE to tell people about her!” She does amazing work and we’re silly giddy to see the set of prints she’s currently creating for our family! So pleased that she is a WoW fan and will be advertising on our sidebar this month.

UPDATE (8/13/12): Paul Haydock, CEO of myParcelDelivery, has contacted us and assured us that his company is a legitimate and well-known parcel delivery site in the UK. I do not doubt him, but we are choosing to keep this post live because a Google search was the only reason we knew our situation was a scam.
Here’s an embarrassing story that we hope you can learn from…a story we hate to write because it still makes us sick to our stomachs.
About a month ago we started looking for a new-to-us MacBook. The one we have is about five years old, and, while it’s served us well, it’s going downhill fast.
Hating to pay full price for a MacBook, we searched Craigslist, hoping to score a deal on slightly used machine. There were lots available, but many seemed overpriced and older than we would have liked.
There was one that stuck out to us, however. It was $600 and nearly brand new. It also had a few upgrades. The lady claimed to have recently gotten it for her birthday, but didn’t need it.
