The post I wanted to write.

1. Tony and I ran the Lifetime Fitness Torchlight 5K last Wednesday. It was such an ordeal to finagle, as it is one of the few races that does not loop back to the beginning. This in and of itself might not be so terrible, if it weren't for the fact that it is hosted DT Minneapolis, with plenty of construction to boot! Once we got to the starting line it was all good, especially since my brother joined us!

Tony and I are very nostalgic about the Torchlight since it was the first 5K that we ever ran. Just 2 short years ago at Nadia's suggestion. I can't believe that we've been running for 2 years already!

We finished around 28:00, I'd say as it was a slow start and we were without a watch. Hah!

2. Work has kind of been turning around lately. I've been strapped with a rather large chunk of responsibility due to my results pre-leave and thankfully haven't buckled under the pressure yet . . . due to this, apparently I've been getting some attention. I'll take it.

3. A major development is brewing in the F household and I would welcome any and all prayers that our path be laid clear. I want welded doors or 1-mile wide ones. :)

4. Tony and I completed the Lumberjack Day's 10 mile run on Saturday. We wanted to do it last year, but our running completely fell to the way side following our half marathon. We were so excited to take it on this year! We finished in 1:43:40 and I'm very pleased with it. Right around mile 9 I wanted to walk, which Tony allowed for about 200 yards . . . and then he said he couldn't do it any longer. We were either going to walk the rest of it or run the rest of it lol, so we ran it out.

5. I'm sticking to my guns re: soccer. I can't agree to sub more than one game a week. The last couple of weeks were CRAZY.

6. Please see #2 and the fact that in turn, I'm working harder. I can't keep up with my Google Reader! I'm trying to stay abreast of my pregnant friends, but aside from that? Forget it, I'm just failing!

7. I have the utmost respect for mother's who are actually able to be modest about their children! I'm sorry, but I have the cutest baby in the world! Just as I say in my posted videos of Isaac lol . . . for the record, I do think there are multiple cutest babies in the world. :) Amazing how that can happen.

8. I'm looking forward to the weekend, although Tony will be working some pretty rough days at a local county fair. I plan on filling the time with friends and family! I can't wait to see you AJ and Abby!

9. Finally, I hope that I can recoup some cash at a garage sale this weekend! Between Tony and I we covered two 10 foot long tables . . .

And that's about all.
Aside from steadily trying to resist the urge to freak out. :)

For the record, yes, Tony will be looking for another job. He in no fewer words told his boss that. Thankfully the job will allow for flexibility, so he will definitely have the time to interview . . . it's just the search part that will be interesting. We have zero prospects right now. If it comes to it, I will take up waitressing again. We are able bodied people and God has given us great varied skills.
