We went to see War Horse. She confessed after seeing the movie that she'd seen it the week earlier but she still cried for the last 20 minutes of the movie and tearfully declared, "I think it was better than Secretariat."
If you are looking for inspiration on getting things done look no further than my mom. She is committed to fitness and wanted to get her workout in. This isn't a new thing, she did a triathlon with me last year and wants to stay in shape for this year's triathlon. I had to work in the evening so she was going to go to my gym and pay for a guest pass. Parking is crazy at my gym at 6 p.m. so she went to my house and googled the location of the nearest YMCA (she's a member at the YMCA in Iowa so she can go to a YMCA for free). She found her way there even though I'd gotten lost earlier that day trying to show her where it was. I thought it was impressive that she went to a gym she'd never been to in a city that is not her own and got her work out in, no excuses. Go Mom. What will you do to complete your goals today?
I'm busy getting caught up and responding to birthday comments and blog comments. I also signed up for the Comment Challenge 2012 , a challenge to comment on 5 kid lit blogs a day for the next 21 days.
