Sweat Equity

It's been a while since I blogged. I guess I haven't really deemed anything {blog worthy}. Well, some new things in sniderland are that Jeff has bought a new truck. It is the smallest truck in the world. No, seriously. He said that when he went to work, he parked it in front of another guys truck and the top of his cab wasn't even as tall as the other guys hood. I love it. We decided to sell Jeff's mountaineer and opt for a cheap junker cuz we have some serious financial goals we want to meet. Like Dave ramsey says "live like no one else, so later you can live like NO ONE else!"
Also, yesterday we started "demo" on 509 Morton avenue. It wasnt "true demo" because the people who lived there before us left tons of junk and crap. We spent three hours loading up the dumpster with rotten clothes, fermenting dog poop, broken VHS tapes, christmas decorations, furniature, and one dead mouse that was sitting in a bowl of water. He was transparent because he was marinating for so long. Yulk! I can't believe that people could live like that. I think they must have just given up on life. It really is kind of sad.
We are really excited about starting the work on that house. We have decided to move forward with total remodel and moving in there when it is finished. We plan to sell the house we live in now when the work is done.
School is going great still. I absolutley love it. I had some ladies from my class over for a study session on sunday. I felt so encouraged because they didn't really understand some of the concepts and after our group they did! I love teaching! The time flew.
Running is still happening just not as consistent in the past week. I did run 6 miles on Saturday but I didn't do my long run on sunday and did nothing on monday. Ek! I think I will run today. It is really hard to stay motivated.
