Tuesday? Really...?

It's hard to believe that it is Tuesday..and by that I mean ONLY Tuesday. Ahh well..such is life...

The last week was a crazy one. We went back and forth with; Am I working? Am I not working? Am I working from home? Can I work from home? How much goo gone does it take to get that stuff off the wall? What is that stuff anyway?

Actually only the work questions were real...last week anyway. We have been having trouble with the entire Adams household turning upside down and someone...usually Moose but Bear has had his fair share of it too...getting injured whenever I GO into work. I am Big daddy's secretary. I make phone calls, set appointments, reschedule appointments for people he wasn't able to see because the car broke an axle, screw his head on straight at the beginning (and end) of each day and pray...allot. It's not a terribly demanding job, as I have said before...unless I am getting cryptic FB messages like "He burnt his hands, what do I do?" or "I think the dog has a concussion...what do I do." (Yes, these are REAL messages I have gotten when I am at work....sigh....)

Besides the work dilemma there was a MASS miscommunication issue with the major performers for our Diverse City exhibition. Someone (A Bubba who shall remain nameless for reasons of protection) overheard a conversation I was having with our Pastor about the date...turned around and..trying to be helpful, told the Dance teacher of the group who was supposed to come dance that the date for the exhibition had changed, then turned around and, after he was yelled at for "helping", told her the right date, but the wrong time...it was a mess. In the end, they pulled out. As did our Spanish guitarist. The guitarist was no big deal. 10 minutes...I can make up for 10 minutes. The dancers however were 30. In a show that is 1hr and 15 minutes it is nearly impossible to suddenly recover from a sudden loss of 40 minutes of performance time. So I canceled.

On the positive side...It was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL here the last week.

We took walks (2.5 miles to BK and NO ONE complained!)

, climbed trees,

Hung out in the yard

 had dinner outside

And basically behaved in true, randomly insane Adams fashion

Just fantabulous weather. It makes us all want to DO something.

That brings me to the fourth and final thing that happened last week; we, as a family (well the 4 older members anyway) decided to do the 2013 Mid-West Tough Mudder.

This I am excited about! It's a 10-12 mile run with a bunch of military style obstacles through it that you have to get over as a team. It's dangerous, it's dirty, it's tough as heck...it's totally my kind of challenge :)

 On top of that they raise money for the "wounded Warrior" project. An awesome cause that is just totally on track with who we are as a family (ie. VERY patriotic).

We chose the 2013 rather than the 2012 event because Big daddy and I are not remotely ready. There's allot of work that will have to be done to strengthen our bodies, especially our cardiovascular and musculature systems. We are mush balls...we admit it :)

Anyway...that's my week in review...how was yours?

(Is it really Tuesday? sigh)


  1. I would totally do that race.

    And that salad looks delicious.

  2. They have them all over the place. Check out Toughmudder.com everything is there including a very well put together motivational video that makes you want to stand up and shout "HOO AHH!" at the top of your lungs when it's over :) The salad was awesome...as only salad can be :)
