**The kids are getting back into the groove of school and everything is going great! Other than the fact that 60% of our household has a sore throat right now. Dumb! Averie is just loving middle school, as I knew she would, being the social creature she is. The whole locker-thing is kicking her ass, though.

**These early mornings are not kind to me. I may or not text my husband every day after the get-on-the-bus rush, “MORNINGS CAN BITE ME”. Coffee makes them a little more bearable.

**I’m taking the kids to a benefit concert in Minot this weekend, put on by The Black Eyed Peas. I am so, so excited to stare at Josh Duhamel see Ashton’s face when the band comes on stage. He kind of idolizes Will.I.Am and has some sweet white-boy moves and rap skillz.

**I have never watched the show, Toddlers and Tiaras, but a mother and her daughter just came on the Today Show while I was writing this, and the little girl was acting like a programmed robot-child doing her little dance and blowing kisses. How obnoxious. That mother should be slapped. Plus? The robot-child said she participates in the pageants for the TOYS. Not that I’m judging. Nope.

**The bugs in North Dakota are HORRENDOUS this year. The worst I have ever seen or experienced. I have massive, ginormous spiders {and webs} on my front porch, around the house, on the plants and trees, everywhere. Usually, I would freak the hell out and have nightmares and scream for my husband to get rid of them, but this year, if there is a chance that these spiders will eat some of the other bugs, I will leave them. Until I see one in my house, then the freaking out will commence.

**I am now on Week 2 of the Couch-to-5K program. It’s actually going pretty well. I am thinking I won’t be saying that in another week or two when it calls for me to run longer than 90 seconds at a time. If you haven’t registered for this race yet, you must. I think it’s pretty great. Not that I am biased or anything.

    What, you’re not a morning person? LOL! I need to register for that 5K. I will probably be walking, as “running” is not in my vocabulary lately. Love ya!
