A New Experience…

So, this weekend I am in Bar Harbor Maine. I will be partaking in the Mount Desert Island Marathon. I have never been much of a runner, (I’ve never really seen the point of running for hours)  however,  if you give me a basketball I can play for hours.
My mother originally signed up a three person relay team to run the event. Unfortunately, my mother contracted Lyme’s disease and was unable to train or run her portion of the marathon. I received a phone call at the end of August, she asked me if I would consider replacing her. I didn’t really commit until until the beginning of September. Since then I have been jogging/walking 7-9 miles about 2 to 3 times a week. It has been the most I have EVER run in my LIFE. I have to say that I have enjoyed the solitude of the treadmill in the late evening and early morning. So, when the run is over. I just my continue this trend I have started.


Small Town Life – Vegetables… Huh? What are they good for?

I don’t like vegetables. I’m really not that picky but I have to say that I like unhealthy stuff so I kinda don’t love vegetables. I mean, really!

I eat artichokes but lets be honest. they kinda look like a vegetable that you need to eat or you might be eaten. It’s a dang thistle!!! For me, it’s really just a catalyst for mayonnaise. Mmmmm… I love mayonnaise. However, I can’t be seen eating mayo out of the jar. It would just be… gross… for whoever was looking at me. So God made artichokes to be a little spoon for mayo. I believe it.

I eat carrots but let’s be honest: they aren’t always the go to for a snack even though someone had the genius idea to peel them, cut them and basically make them prep free right out of a bag from the grocery store. And yet, I open the fridge and all I want is cheese. Carrots are really just something to dress up in ranch. Oh, hello little boring carrot. How about a lovely ranch dressing suit? Yessss… that’s nice. Now you are worth eating. I can’t be seen drinking ranch out of the bottle but dip a carrot in ranch and suddenly I am healthyish again.

I eat tomatoes but let’s be honest: they aren’t awesome. They are seedy and acidy and just not fun to eat. I plain old don’t like them. Tomatoes are just a reason to eat bacon. Slap some bacon and mayo on bread and hide a few tomatoes in there and well, I’m healthfully eating fat and carbs.

How do you hide vegetables?

Emma Watson Is Right—Don’t Take Potshots at Fathers

Originally posted on TIME:

“I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society despite my needing his presence as a child as much as my mother’s. We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence.”- Emma Watson

The famous actress and Ivy League graduate uttered those spectacular words in an address to the United Nations last week. Watson, a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador, gave an impassioned speech calling on men to join women in the battle for gender equality. But in the process, she spoke about the importance of dads, the gender stereotypes that exist for men, and the reasons both sexes have to speak up for one another.

And her timing couldn’t have been better.

This weekend, I waded into unexpected controversy regarding this very…
