June 16, 2014

At 5:30 am, Doug and I were woken up to a very sleepy Michael standing in our doorway saying “my ear hurts.”  I looked at Doug and said “you have to stay home tomorrow.”  I had already taken the day off but I had a very important thing to do that is not up for […]

Because You Hated the Presidential Fitness Challenge Too

May 20, 2014

Somehow, this weekend, my husband and I stumbled upon the topic of the Presidential Physical Fitness Challenge.  If you were a child of the 80′s, or a child of the 70′s, you remember this.  You had to run a mile, do a bunch of pull ups, sit ups, push ups, and I think maybe they […]
