On a Happy Note

c25k free app for iPhone (couch to 5k training program)

I just finished Week 4
I'm enjoying the armband option for phone. If you're playing it aloud, be sure to face the bottom up towards your face so you can hear it. And if it rains, put a Ziplock bag over it! Voila. Dry phone!

There's almost nothing that makes me happier than pool time on the weekend! Especially before my big work project ramps up!

Silly kids!

Watching 7 kids in a pool can be a little tricky, but its worth every second!
Finally- clean house makes me really happy!

Thanks for listening! Talk to you soon!
