This and That

I don't like posting without pictures. That is why I have not been saying much. I am saving for a new camera, but it will probably be quite awhile before I get one, as the one I want is quite expensive. But I am hoping to use it to make a little extra income. I am not sure how I will do at that, but I'll try.

I am getting close to running a full 3 miles. It is a little less than 9/10ths of a mile around the frontside of the property, and I ran it 3 times today. I am going for 4 full laps before the 5k on March 6th.  I have found that I must have weak ankles. I have never had a problem with them before, but I can hardly run without ankle braces right now. I am hoping keeping up running with strengthen them, but I'm not sure if it works that way with such things.

I have covered or turned around all the mirrors in the house except for the one in the bathroom where I can only see myself from the shoulders up. I was spending way too much time seeing if I was losing any weight with this running, and getting discouraged because if you check every 5 minutes, you can't tell.  Not to mention it made me feel conceited or something like that.  So they will stay covered until at least after March 6th. Even though I don't plan on quitting running then.

Tyrel and Kimber are doing great. Kimber is fast approaching 4 months. Which reminds me that I never wrote a 3 months post for her. She has rolled over 3 times. But they were days between, and it has been over a week since the last time she did. I am not in a hurry anyways. She is happy and healthy.
Tyrel is getting to be such a big boy. I know I always say that, but it amazes me all the time at how grown up he is getting. He looks so big, acts so big, and has been bossing the older kids around as if he was bigger than them....which we are working on letting him know he is not the boss of the big kids, or of Kyle either for that matter.

Well Kimber woke up from her nap, so whatever else I was going to say can wait. Just letting you know I am still here.

Have you ever tried a Needak Rebounder? I love mine. I can exercise in the house, or on the porch, and never have to leave the kids. It can be hard for me to leave the house! =) Click the link on the left side of my blog. Mentioning your ankles is what made me think of suggesting a Needak...=)
