Talk to Us Tuesday--On a Wednesday

I promised Impulsive that I'd link up to her new linky dealy. Her linky is on is Wednesday. So, as always I'm a day late. That's my life.

Impulsive's linky is Talk to Us Tuesday where you basically just chat about whatever you want. So I'm going to give it a try--and try not to bore you. Here goes:

(Patrick after he scored a goal! Yay!! His back is to the camera, that other little cutie is his best friend. They are so cute together...little boys, LOVE THEM!)
-I'm officially a soccer mom--but NO mini van! Patrick is playing soccer this fall. He loves it, it's super cute and we're having fun. Is there anything cuter than little 5/6 year old boys and girls running around in their too big chin guards. And really, you know why they play...for the after game snacks.

-My heart was so sad and heartbroken for the past two weeks. A friend of mine lost her 4 month old baby. It's the first time that a child of one of my friends died. I struggled with the right words to say, when to act and when to back off. I couldn't make sense of it, this precious family who has gone through so much heartbreak already. Why is this happening to them? They are the strongest, most faithful family I've ever seen. God is with them everyday. But won't you please say a prayer for my friend (God will know who you're talking about, I don't want to put her name out in public without her permission), for continued healing of her heart, peace, understanding and for them to help their other children grieve while she's grieving herself. And give your children one more hug and tell them you love them, life is precious and unpredictable.

-I'm obsessed with my hair. It's ridiculously out of control and ugly right now! I need to get my highlights done, but I don't know what to do. I'm in need of a serious hair cut, but I don't know what I want. Ugh, my hair has always caused me great disdain (except when I was preggers with Patrick, I had awesome hair then).

-Visit Comment, put something in the forum. Stop by and say 'hi'! We'd love to see you over there. There's big plans coming down the pick for, can't wait to tell you about it when I know more. But stop by!

(seriously, why'd I put this ridiculous photo of me on here? It's the only pic I have of myself running...gag). knew I was going to go there. I've had some serious setbacks lately. Nothing physical. It's all mental. My motivation is gone. I need to get my running mojo back! Help! I used to run at least 4 times a week, but now I struggle to get out twice a week. I just don't feel like going. And I actually kind of like running (well, I don't like it when I'm doing it, but I love the way I feel afterwards--weird, I know). If anyone would like to give me some words of motivation, that would be great.

So there you have, my "Talk" for Talk to Us Tuesday (on a Wednesday). Sorry I wasn't too boring.

Love the soccer pic! I hope to have a boy someday. Boys are so fun!

I was so sad to read that your friend lost her baby. This is always sad news. Why is it more sad when a baby is involved? It's hard for us to understand why but he/her is safe now. =(

You have great hair! What are you talking about?

I need to visit ttownmoms. I wish Tulsa was closer. My town (HELL) doesn't have anything for moms or children. It's pathetic.

LOVE the running picture! No need to gag silly! Look how toned your arms are!!! I've slacked on my running too. I really think it was the weather. GET BACK OUT THERE!!! Set mini goals for yourself. You can do it! Maybe get some new music? I don't know. I'm not great at advice. Good thing my friends know this about me.

THANK YOU THANK YOU for linking up with us!

Better late than never!

I remember the days of every player on each team running in a pack after the ball, now it's super cut throat. Our high school girls team took state and I think 3rd in Nationals! Sadly, that will come sooner than you would like.

The lose of a child i one thing I will never understand. I ma so sorry for both you and your sweet friend!

My hair only looks good lately tucked inside a hat. This reminds me to call and move my appointment up!

All I can hear is Dory, from Finding Nemo, and she's telling you to "just keep running, running, running". Lame I know but it;s all I got!

Thanks for linking up with us!
