Do the ChaCha!

I haven't been spending much time blogging lately because I just started working for ChaCha. I took the test to become a guide (someone who receives texts online and researches and answers questions) on Monday and got my acceptance on Wednesday. It's a fun job, and perfect for my schedule since I can work whenever I want to and if something comes up (like, I don't know, a 3 year old dumping out an entire box of Cheerios into the shoe box) I can go take care of it and come right back and keep working. The pay varies a lot depending on how fast you can answer questions, and I'm still pretty slow so I'm not making much yet, but I'm hoping it will become a nice source of a little extra cash. Mostly to fund my soap habit. And my book habit. And all my other habits. So far I'm having a good time with it and learning a lot of (mostly useless) information at the same time. People ask some bizarre things. Stay tuned for reports of crazy questions and answers!

Welcome baby Wes!

While I'm giving out congratulations...I just realized I forgot to officially congratulate Andrea and Rick. Their little boy, Wesley Charles was born in August. Congratulations, Andrea and Rick! He's a cutie and they have the pictures to prove it!

Congratulations Samm and Spencer!

Last weekend we traveled to Harrisonburg, Virginia to see Eric's brother Spencer get married. We had a great time visiting with family and sharing in the happy event. Sawyer did really well during the ceremony - although he did poop in his diaper 5 minutes before it started, when I didn't have time to run out to the car to get a diaper and change him. I'm more motivated than ever to get him potty trained! Here are some pictures from the weekend.

Marketing FAIL

This is what came in the box from Amazon.

Looks like they should have read the book first!

The best-laid plans...

Remember how I was talking about stepping up my workouts? Like a week ago? Well, it hasn't happened. Between several days of rain and Sawyer and me both being sick, it's been the worst workout week ever. Yesterday morning I was determined to get my five miles in, come hell or high water, and I did it. I felt like I was going to die after two miles and just about had to crawl the last mile (OK, I'm exaggerating, but it was a lot harder than normal.) So today I'm home and resting on the couch. Am I being smart to listen to my body, or should I just power through? I don't know. But I do know it feels really, really good to lie down.

I've been bumped down to #6 on Fitify, and the #5 person is 12 miles ahead of me. Crap. (The #1 person has 214 miles! That's 7 miles a day, 7 days a week! How cool is that?) Here's hoping next week will be better...
