Hi Kristen, Sorry it's been awhile. Life was extra crazy around here with Cole's bday. Sounds like a good idea with the extra night. I would be worried about leaving the boys as well but as you said it would't be good to wake them at 4 a.m. I'm sure you will do great in the race and I'm so happy for you that you will be doing it. I wish I had that kind of motivationI'm doing good enough just to be excercising 5 days a week. About the real estate thing: I would love to get into that as well. Jerry has always told me he thinks that is my calling because I love seeing the inside of houses and such. I just wasn't sure what all it entailed in order to do it. If you could give me any info on what it takes to get into it I would be really appreciative. I was just worried all the paperwork and such would be too much. I'm not overly organized so a lot of paperwork isn't my friend,lol. That is really neat that you have your mom to help you. Like you said, I am not going to work until Cole goes to school but it would be nice to get a head start checking on it and deciding for sure if that's what I want to do. Ok, I will let you go now. Sorry for rambling. I need to get over to my TR and do an update on Cole's bday. We'll see, hopefully I can.
