Too Busy To Breathe

HI everyone. I have been so busy I haven't been able to keep up with reading or writing. I am applying to go to a special program to get my reading specialist certification. The application process was time consuming but its in and now I have a minute to breathe.

I am struggling to parent my teenagers all by myself. No matter how much of myself I give to them, it never seems to be enough. And no one really has any answers except to buckle your seatbelt and hold on tight. What a freakin ride. It is scary actually. Enjoy your little kids cuz once they hit about 13 it is a slow decent to hell. I know it will get better but I am in the middle of it right now and it sucks.

I have been running at the gym and I can feel my body enjoying it again. I took a nice long break and my body needed it. I am signing up for the Chicago Marathon on Feb 1st. I am so psyched to run Chicago. I haven't been back there since I was 12. Running a marathon is such a great way to see a city!

Ya, teenagers... they make life interesting. Your job is to see them out of the house in one piece! :-)

I have a preteen.


Thank you for scaring me to death!


You hang in there, Beth. I'm hoping I will see you at New Haven in the fall.

Congratulations on going for the reading specialist certification. My oldest is 11 and it has already begun. Although, I don't have anything really to complain about. Good luck!
