I have been such a slacker. I should be gardening or cleaning or exercising or folding the laundry, but I think I will actually post today. I keep thinking about Marquee telling me how badly I need to, so okay I will.

Ben is still running and loving it. He will be doing another 100 miler this year. He got into the Wasatch 100. I am excited because this one is in Utah. It will make crewing him much easier. But I did love our experience in Leadville last year.

Check out Isabel's blog. I posted an update there. This link is on the top right.

Kya is a little handful. I have a difficult time keeping my patience with her. She has a habit of getting into everything she is not supposed to and making enormous messes. But she is also very loving (which is what saves her from permanent time out). She tells me at least two dozens times a day she loves me.

Sophi is just fun, what can I say? The other day after she woke up, I was still tired so I brought her into my bed. I layed her down and said, "We have a blankie, a binki, and a mommy" and I gave her a big hug. Her reply was "HAPPY!"

Well I have been busy working and taking care of the kids. BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. The story of my life and everyone else's, right? So enough of the same old crap. Let's discuss something very serious. How in the world am I going to drop this last 25lbs that have been hanging onto my ass for way too long? I think what I need is someone to go walking with.

Any volunteers?

I really want to start walking up Maple canyon. I used to do this with some friends and I loved it.

I have been obsessed with books lately. I just finished reading the Hunger Games, and loved it. Has anyone read this? I am going to have a difficult time waiting for the next book to come out, but the wait will be worth it. I am thinking about joining a book club. But I worry that doing this will make reading seem like a chore instead of enjoyment. Does anyone belong to one, and if so do you like it? Ben recently splurged and bought a big screen TV. When he is not home I will not get turned on for days. I guess the TV will last forever with it's lack of use.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a good book? I need a new one.

Okay here are some random pictures?

Oh by the way I need to have my tonsils out and will probably do it in the next couple of months (both me and Isabel). Has anyone had them out as an adult? I hear it really sucks. But the doctor said most adults lose 10-15 pounds. I am not sure, but maybe it will be worth it.

I joined a book club last year with the idea I may find time to read 1 or 2 books. I actually read about 10 books last year and I thought it was great. It gets you to read books that you may not actually choose yourself but turn out to be really good. You should try it. We just finished "The prize winner of defiance, ohio." It was good. And I really liked "little britches".

The pictures of your kids on the side of you blog are so cute. Who took them for you?

hey heather! i had my tonsils out at 21 and it was by far the WORST thing EVER.... worse than labor in my book and with labor there is an end result unlike a tonsil surgery... i was down and out for 3 weeks... NO LIE so plan for a good long recovery!
i wish i had some advice for weight loss... but i dont :(. losing weight is just such an annoying thing isnt it!!
im glad things are well with you and your family. i havent seen you in years... maybe one day i'll swing by cuc and see you. :)
take care!

Hi!!! Had my tonsils out at age 24 and it was the worst experience of my life. But I did loose 15 pounds!!! And I have NEVER been sick since so it was worth it but really painful and long to get over. SO good luck!!!! Be patient - you will need a few weeks to recover. Miss talking to you. Your girls are darling!!! I don't get turned on very often either:)Just like your new TV:) I feel your pain:)
