Mother of the Year

Well, I have to hurry. My son will be home in a few minutes and he has to go and cut the BF’s Mom’s grass…?? Anyway, since he has been working so hard cutting three lawns weekly and keeping up with school and basketball, and only complaining very minimally, I thought I would help him out today and cut our back grass.

Yes, very helpful. As I was cutting our grass, like I used to do all the time, I seem to have broken the automatic drive on the mower. That’s the part that spins the front wheels to make cutting a little easier. Moves the machine forward for you, and you just keep it straight.

Well, that part doesn’t work anymore, and I couldn’t fix it.

As a bonus, though, I got quite a workout, since that mower is extremely heavy and hard to push around our hilly lawn. Yay me.

And now my son will have a chance to work extra hard today because of me. I don’t know, maybe he can fix it. Maybe the BF can later.

At any rate, it doesn’t matter for the present moment because it don’t work NOW!

So, I thought I’d just post another running list while I wait for the wrath of my 11-year old dynamo.

I should have just went running for exercise like I planned and left the yard work to the boy. This is the Run Wild specific list. It’s long because I combined Wild and Crazy and the Jungle into one list. Wasn’t sure how many songs there would be. Turns out, ALOT.

Here it is: Running Wild & Crazy (Possibly in the Jungle)

On the road yesterday! Yes, I was driving and taking pictures with the camera on my phone. That’s why they’re not super-great. But who cares. Here’s another one. Enjoy!

Is It Just Me?

Or does this ad for Reebok seem a little…wrong??

This was in Glamour Magazine, and probably other ones, but it seems like the ad agency/Reebok might have been trying too hard to be…hip? relevant? finger-on-the-pulse of single ladies…or marrieds (whatever)…doing the “WALK OF SHAME” ??? Or was it a joke…slip it in and see if anyone notices?

I don’t know. It’s probably just me…but that line seems REALLY out of place.
