We'll start with last week. A while ago I posted that my parents were going to be losing all their trees. There is a project called Capx2020 that effected my parents. Basically they lost a big chunk of their land to eminent domain. Power lines are being put up on their property. My parents have lived in their home for 40+ years and planted tons of trees. All the ones in their front yard got cut down during the last two weeks. All their shade and privacy is gone.
This is my parents front yard before. All these trees were cut down.
On Saturday I participated in The Dirty Girl Mud Run 5K! It was soooo much fun! If you have not done a mud run, I would highly recommend it!!!

My girfriends that I ran with! They kept me going!

Me and Kate. Kate was my son's third grade teacher last year. She is a great friend and co-worker. I have never seen someone with the amount of energy that she had! Wow!!!

This week has been busy too. Our house was struck by lightening on Monday morning. Luckily nothing was damaged (that we know of). In addition to that, on the way to my son's class Monday morning, the brakes started to go out on my car. I was happy that it happened now instead of when school starts at the end of August. Just when I thought things couldn't get worse, I ended up taking my sister to the ER on Monday night. She's been dealing with a pesky kidney stone. She was in so much pain and was admitted to spend the night. I have never seen her sweat so much! They say the pain is comparable to having a baby. After seeing her suffer through the pain, I believe it!
