6 Thing Saturday

1. Race #1: I ran a 5K this morning. Sometimes it’s fun to run fast. But, then sometimes at mile 1.5 when you feel like you want to puke and die you remember that you don't like 5Ks very much.

The course was short by .1, but I got a 21:30 (7:12 mile/min pace), which is good for me. The last 2 miles I was running right behind a girl who I would guess was 10 years old. She was very speedy. I was impressed, but then got annoyed because every time I tried to pass her, she would deliberately cut me off. She did this about 90 times.  She was pretty cute and I liked her competitive spirit, so I let it slide.

2. Splurge: Ken and I went to the grocery store and farmer’s market afterwards for a splurge (Heidi loves donuts):

This was hands down the best almond croissant I’ve ever had (have I ever told you that almond croissants are my favorite pastry ever?). It was from a bakery called Izzios.

3. Stirrups: At the grocery store I ran into the doctor who delivered my babies. Kind of weird to have small talk with the one who has seen you screaming while in stirrups.

4. Kids: We got home and Ken asked why I threw away all the Oreos. What is he talking about? I looked in the trash and found this:

Yes, apparently in middle of the night one of my blessed children licked the white stuff out of the middle of many Oreos and threw the rest away. I don’t even know what to say. This has got to be the epitome of being spoiled and wasteful. And childish! (although it is something I might do. I would just hide the evidence a bit better).

5. Farts: Someone sent me a link to a new study that found that smelling farts may prevent cancer. This is very good news as we apparently do a lot of cancer prevention around here with the number of farts that are expelled. I want everyone to know that I fart because I am trying to save lives (I need that on a bumper sticker).

6. Race #2: I am on my way to Boulder to pick up my packet for the Boulder Peak Triathlon, which is tomorrow. Who is racing with me?

What is the most exasperating thing your kids did this week?

Favorite pastry?

  2. Favorite pastry: Cinnamon rolls. I have an EXCELLENT Cinnabon copycat that everyone LOVES!

    Exasperating kids: It's tough to narrow it down to just one. I'll go with taking EVERY stuffed animal they own and piling them up on one bed so they could be the "audience" for a story reading. Exasperating because...4 kids equals A LOT of stuffed animals but I couldn't very well complain since they were reading to them (and it was a series of stories that our Youngest Boy wrote) AND they (mostly) cleaned them up.

  3. Is it bad that I had to google exasperate? In my defense English is not my first language. Anyway... Probably telling me every 5 seconds "Mom, I am bored!"

    Favorite pastry: tiramisu or cream puffs

  4. I just read tha same article this morning. Told my husband about it. And that I would rather die than smell one of his farts again. LOL he was not impressed. If it has sugar, I will eat it. Unless it's a sugar covered fart. ;-)

  5. Exasperating kids: One of my kids refuses to go to a public pool because they are germy.

  6. I also love Izzio's Artisan Bakery. All of their baked goods are to die for. My family always buy their sprouted croissant. Lately, my wife's hooked on their new product. It's called Rocky Mountain Sourdough. It's good but I still like the croissant better.

    2. My name is David smith , my family and i live in UK .It was after seven years i got to discover that my wife was unfaithful to me.I didn't know what was going on at first but as she got deep in the affair with her new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks.I notice that she no longer light up when i touch her or kiss her in her neck and her chest cos she really liked it when i did that, she also usually get naked in front of me but when she started seeing that guy she stopped it.I remember asking her if i have done anything that makes her feel irritated when i am around her then she gives silly excuses that she has been feeling stressed up and that she need space for a while.I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy is going on.I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on.And in a week time he brought me prove that my wife that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with her high school lover.I had picture of her walking out a of a restaurant with him and many other photo of them kissing in public like she will never be caught by someone that knows she is my wife.I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together she could this to me.That same night i showed her the pictures that i got from my private investigator.She didn't look at it before saying, that she is seeing someone and she know that i just found out about it.Then she said that she is in love with him.At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill her but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me cos i was so much in love with her to even think of thinking to hurt her.As time when on she asked for a divorce and got it and even got custody of our daughter and i was all alone by myself.For a year i tried all i could to get her back with the help of my seven year old daughter.Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of her friend but turned out all bad.I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive.And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr Otiagbe really made my life much better cos he gave me my family back.He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and believe that he had the power to help me.Like he said, he was going to do something that will make her reset her love and affection for me just as it has always been.My wife told me she woke up and realized that she should have never left me that i am all she needs.To make thing clear, her life with her high school lover was great before Dr tatota castled the spell they had no disagreement on anything.The guy said it himself that why she broke up with him is unexplainable.Only Dr Otiagbe can do such a thing contact him to solve your problem with his email:drOtiagbe@outlook.comYou can contact him for any help, he is very powerful and can solve any kind of problem below.

  7. I find it really hard to create a good pacing. I enjoy running but my pacing isn't good. I often run faster as I planned and not noticing it. By the time I noticed it, I find myself so tired and weary! The solution to my problem is always have a running buddy to remind me if I'm going too fast or too slow. A friend of mine gave me a vivofit but I don't know how to use it. LOL

  8. Omg the oreo story.... You have to tell us which one did it and what their thought process was! My first (and only) 5k I ever ran, I was trying to run a sub 20. This was a very small town race, so my plan was to be on the starting line when the gun went off. Well, about 4 kids stood in front of me on the starting line, and when I say kids, I say 6-10 years old. I couldn't do anything about it though because they were the great grandkids of the man the race was in honor of lol. I ended up passing them on the grass within the first 10 seconds. Oh, I reached my goal, too! KIDS BE DAMNED!

  9. Okay. So I do that to Oreos. Or I used to. Here's the deal. I'm allergic to chocolate. And the Golden Oreo filling doesn't taste the same. We love Oreos so much in this house I bought my son a share of stock in it. We eat a LOT of Oreos. We don't have a cookie jar. We have an Oreo jar. I think I made my point. But I make little Oreo carcasses. I use a knife and scrape the white stuff off and put the carcasses back in the jar. No one likes me then. Hello! Still a good cookie!

    Whatever. You guys have no respect for the sufferers of the world.

    Also, I'm Celiac so I can't even do that anymore. I think it's the universes way of slapping me.

    1. Well, at least you use a knife and don't lick all of them and put them back!

  10. I get your kids. I've long wished that you could just buy a tub of Oreo filling and eat it with a spoon.

    1. crisco and powdered sugar makes it perfectly. Just keep whisking it in the mixer and add more sugar until you get the taste you want.

  11. Haha! I was just telling my husband last night that I was saving his life by farting all the time.

  12. Napoleons..yumm..all of that pastry cream and the flaky layers..Wegman's used to make them but I think the communists took over the bakery and now they are gone :(

  13. I do the same thing to Oreos (I make sure to buy the double stuf). Maybe Oreo should just consider packaging the white filling - I wonder what they would call it? My favorite pastry is an Ocean Roll from Sparrow Bakery here in Bend. To die for.

  16. I was out there in Boulder on Sunday! I was the one who yelled out, "Hi Beth" as you were heading to the turn-around. On that silly, narrow dirt trail. Who designed the run course, anyway? You passed me shortly after crossing back over the "don't jump in or you will die" bridge. I saw you after the race with a full plate of food but didn't feel like being a total stalker so I left you to your goodies. I hope you had a great race! It was a beautiful day for it!

  17. Exasperating kids: putting dishes on the counter ABOVE the dishwasher instead of IN the dishwasher (at 10 and 13 they are capable of doing this correctly - just don't!). Ugh!

    I participated in the Show Me State Games triathlon (sprint) this past Sunday. I saw one of your shirts on a girl named Tara! I told her that her shirt was super cool and that I loved your blog too. She actually recognized me from my blog which was a total hoot! She did the duathlon and medaled. I did the tri and medaled too! You have to love small races - especially since I was nearly last!
