    Run, Jenn, run! I won't be thinking of you on your race day since I'll be busy with Hulky, but I'll send some thoughts ahead of time

    Bow chicka bow wow! lol

    So my next educational endeavor has been decided. There is a program here on the Island called Journey to Leadership. A former boss highly suggested I go through the program and told me to see him for a letter of recommendation when I sign up. Unfortunately, there are no upcoming sessions yet, but the training office will send out info on it when it is available. Anyhow, I asked my current boss (Boss #2) if that is a program that would be worth my time given I already have a master's degree in the same topic. She said yes and no. She said a lot of it will be repetition of what I learned at St. Ambrose, but she said the experience that comes from the job shadowing and the 30 day training portion will be greatly beneficial to my future on the Island. She said I need to go.

    So... that's what I plan to do... It's all done "on Island" so I won't have to travel and it's done during duty hours, so I won't have to lose any time with family, which is awesome. I guess it contains masters level course work, so it'll be challenging too. It'd be so cool to add it to my resume.

    Thinking about signing up for another half marathon - on October 20th. I'll be running anyway to keep my endurance up for the December race, so why not. It'll be a $35 donation to the school system (it's a fundraiser for a local school district). There's also a fundraiser in November that I might do. It's on trails - technical trails - and for the most part, gets walked b/c it's so steep. A buddy puts this one on to raise money for a playground at a local state park. It's an out and back course with one lap being 6.2 miles. You do as many laps as you want to get whatever distance you want, log your time, and make a donation (however much you want) to the charity. It's not an official race and there's no medal or anything like that, but it's still fun to do. I did it in 2010 and enjoyed it. So, I may do that one too. It's November 10th.

    I'll wait to sign up for them though.

    regarding the pee mess that little boys like to leave...............

    put a container of the those Clorox disinfecting wipes by the toilet and teach him how to wipe up the mess Or a spray bottle of something more natural - vinegar and water?

    Does he respond to things like sticker charts with a "prize" after 10 stickers? Make it a game that will grow into a habit as he grows up.

    Dude, I want a sticker.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Tristan is talking about doing her first half marathon next year. She absolutely loves running and the friends she has made while in cross country. She's trying to talk me into doing it with her and I'm scared to run. With all the issues I've had with my knee the past month, I think I may have a legitimate reason not to run.

    That's the kind of stickers we had when I was a kid.
