tonight i had my first training class at the running room in kanata. we did a 3 km tempo run. i've joined the group that plans on finishing the race in 2 hours and 15 minutes. i think it's attainable.
i hope it's attainable. this is something that i want to do for myself. i want to say that i can do this. i want to be a better, fitter person. a good role model for my girls.

Summer’s over and the kids go back to school. Thank god.. because I think the boredom was really starting to get to them! Rebekah starts college this year, Meghan grade 7 and Emma grade 5.
Back to school also means… lunches… I really hate prepacked, overpriced and over processed items and so today we’re busy making some snacks. On the menu for school is some toffee brownies and some smores granola bars. Also making some peanut butter oatmeal cookies for an afterschool snack since they can’t have pb at school.
These turned out great . I found these Peanut Butter Coconut Oatmeal cookies at Daily Unadventures in Cooking blog.
These Chocolate Toffee Brownies were in my American Heart Association Healthy Family Meals cookbook- I definitely recommend it.
SMORES Granola Bars! What is not to love about this? Find this recipe at Sweet Peas Kitchen blog.
I also made a delicious Zucchini Spice Bread
I think the kids are set for food this week Desserts anyways…

i came to this decision today as i was trying to (unsuccessfully) rearrange the photos on our on blank wall. nothing was working and now i have an empty wall full of holes.....
it's much harder creating a random design then i thought!
anyways i'd like to repaint now and also do something with the fireplace. anyone got any ideas or advice?
