in the past four weeks. I took a new head football coaching job in Marion, Arkansas (just outside of Memphis) and the job required me to leave my last high school and move immediately. I was hired on a Thursday night and we moved over 2 hours away and were completely moved in by Wednesday. I started the new job the following Monday. Not bad for 12 days! I’ll be starting my fourth week next week and the family and I are finally starting to get into a routine. It was weird to move so fast. We basically had 5 days to pack up and say goodbye to people. If you are ever visiting Memphis or need somewhere to stay before St Jude’s Marathon, just let me know we’d love to visit with ya!
Memphis zoo today was a blast! Enjoyed the day off from work with Sarah and the kiddos.
If you do and would like to share your thoughts about it, I’d greatly appreciate it.
that I don’t get yelled at enough by adults coaching high school football, so I’ve decided to coach Anderson’s 5 and under soccer team. 1 coach, 6 kids 5 and under. This should be entertaining.
Anderson can use the bathroom by himself but he needs help at the end. So today I am in the living room and hear him yell, “I’m done” which means come wipe my butt. So I go in and get some toilet paper to wipe him and as my hand is back there I feel his body tense up. As I feel his body tense, my brain processes this information and is confused. He just told me that he was done, but if his body is tensing up then he is probably about to poop some more. In the split second my brain was trying to resolve this dilemma and move my hand, I was greeted with a warm, soft sensation. As I let out a groan, my son lets out a deep belly laugh and says “I guess I’m not done.” Dude is lucky I love him.
and mixing bootcamp style workouts into my running. Today I did the Insanity fit test. Not the actual workout, just the fit test, and I almost puked. It felt good to really push it though.
breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next 5 days. I’m going to lose these last 1903287644 pounds!
Sarah and I took the kiddos to the Altitude Trampoline Park. It was awesome. I had as much fun as they did, if not more. There is something really cool about jumping super high and doing flips and landing in a huge foam pit.
What do you mean your headphones don’t look like this?
This is what happens when you forget your headphones and have to take whatever you can find in the office. Looking this cool is just a bonus.
It could be worse, you could live in Cooter, MO
the first run of the Novice HH marathon training plan.
It was awful and it was awesome all at the same time. Those 3 miles were slower than the last three miles of any marathon I’ve done, but when you are this out of shape, it is was it is. I’m excited to have a race to train for and I’m pumped to have 2013 in the rear view mirror.
NutriBullet for Sarah and I. It is pretty freakin cool.
This drum is the bane of my existence right now. A big thanks to Sarah’s parents for buying this.
A note on those cars we got for the kiddos. We bought them at garage sales back in the fall and it was so much better than buying them new. We spent $20 on the Barbie car and $25 on the four wheeler. The only thing we had to do was clean them and buy a $20 battery for one of them. Big props to Sarah for being smart and thrifty!
