Diary of a Reluctant Half-Marathoner: Managing Goals and Gators

Today begins my 2nd week of pre-training for the St. Jude half-marathon in December. The first week had some interesting twists and turns, but overall I’m happy with how things went.

The Weekly Recap: R.I.P. Wonder Woman Mug

Sunday morning trip to Memphis Last weekend, May Lee and I took an impromptu trip to Memphis to buy a birthday present for my dad. It turned out to be a lovely little day trip.

Who I Am as a School Parent This week as I was cleaning and going through a stack of papers, I came across May Lee’s final report card for the 1st time.

The Second Week of School, Oreos, and Rapunzel

We are two weeks into the school year, and I’ve come to accept some things about my daughter and myself. We are not highly structured women. Our free-spirited, gypsy souls thrive in the loose structure of summer days where schedules are flexible and planned activities are minimal.
