Catching Up

I had forgotten just how hectic this time of year is for us. It is great being back in Kentucky and we enjoy being back to work at Amazon, but between work and school and trying to get a little sleep from time to time, there is not a whole lot of time for anything else.

Things are in full swing, though. Rob is on his last work-hardening week and then he is on full 10-hour shifts, as I have been for the last couple of weeks. We are both picking, meaning we are getting a lot of exercise walking around the huge facility every night, picking items people have purchased. Last year we both left here a few pounds lighter, so we will have to see how that goes this year.

Back on the 13th of October, I ran my first official half-marathon in Midway, Kentucky. It was such a wonderful experience running the rolling hills of Kentucky horse country. Horses were running the fence lines with us and were just amazing to watch. After not running more than twice since my marathon three weeks prior, I wasn’t sure how it would go, but I was able to run the whole way and finished in 2:18:55. I even met Jeff Galloway! I followed his training plans for my marathon and it was neat being able to meet the person who made it possible.

We have gone fishing a couple of times. It is nice to be able to relax a little bit while the kids explore. The fish in the area are new to Rob, so he is still learning how to catch them. He can catch trout like a master, but the bass and catfish and crappie are a little different. He did catch his first Kentucky fish, but it was so small that he wasn’t too excited about a picture with it. Notice his “Please just take the darned picture so I can throw the darned fish back in the darned lake,” look. It still surprises me that he keeps me around…

I have already made reservations at an RV park down in Florida, so at least we know where we are going from here. Now we must make it through Peak season at Amazon while keeping up on the kids’ schooling. But today is already the 23rd, so we only have two more months here, and if it is anything like last year, it will fly by.

  1. My goodness , what a full life you are having…this year I shall not be using Amazon so it will not be my fault when you are tired and weary…Rob and his fish ..just pretend that the real biggun got away, and that this was just the bait.
    Two marathons…my gracious..when do you find the time. With full time job, a hubbie and three children to care for..you must be Wonder Woman!!!!!!!
    Have a great time over the next few weeks, and enjoy Flotidawhen you get there…but above all else..wherever you go, drive with care and stay safe..all of you xxxxxxxxx

  2. Glad you are all back together again and living your normal busy lives. The busy part makes time pass so quickly, you’ll be in Florida before you know it. You’ve all gotten to see so much since your journey began with still so much on the horizon. Count yourselves very lucky that you are able to live the life you are living. We love you all so much and enjoy following along on your travels and adventures. Enjoy Amazon. I’ll have to check for more quilting books! Wouldn’t it be something if either of you picked my order!? Love you guys so much!!!! 🙂

    • I always think of you when I pick quilting books and wonder if you have that particular one, or if you would like to add it to your collection. 🙂 We love and miss you both!!!
