The Day That May Save The World.

Can it be February 7th already please.

I know I ask for a lot for myself mostly since I am selfish and all but please for the safety of my home and family can February 7th hurry up and get here.

For those of you that don't know on February 7th this much anticipated and anxiously awaited feature film is hitting theaters ....

Yes. The Lego Movie.  My kids are so stoked to see this. Have been since the very first day they heard about it.  They have the poster.  They have the minifigures.  They have the remote in hand and rewinding the dvr every time a commercial comes on for the movie.

They are excited to see this but to be completely honest, I AM TOO. 

You can go here Everything Is Awesome Song and listen to the great little catchy tune that is in the movie. 

Watch the previews and get excited along with us.

or this one..

February 7th does need to hurry. I am scared for my life that if the kids do not get to this movie soon that they are going to take over the house.  Now, I am not just scared for myself but also for T.  We are loving parents that try and do what is best for our kids but when the C's get crazy...THEY GET NUTS!  The C's are lego freaks.  Lego's in the bedrooms, in the playrooms, in the kitchen, in the living room, in the bathroom, everywhere.  We are in a lego house.  I am not home during the day, I have no idea if the kids are plotting against T and I.  They say they go to sleep at night but are they really planning something to take us down.

The News and Papers and CNN and so on can say video games are ruining our kids minds and brainwashing them.  Reports from doctors can claim that too much tv and not enough reading and exercise will make your kids rot away but I have done my own research.  I have proof and factual evidence that LEGOS are making the kids crazy.  LEGOS are making the kids turn against parents and authorities and that is why all the madness is happening in the WORLD.

That is why I ask.  Please let February 7th come faster.  It will not only save the lives of T and I along with our home, but it may also save the World. 

Everything is Awesome

2014 CrossFit Games Open.....Setting The Record Straight

Well it is that time of year again.  The CrossFit Games Open 2014 has begun with the registration process starting. So grab your $20 head on over to the wonderful site that CrossFit has set up. (CrossFit Games Open)  It's easy to do, anyone can do it and you don't want to be left of of the party.  Just ask Lisbeth Darsh who wrote this piece The Party We All Get To Crash.

I am in constant conversations with my CrossFit brothers and sisters of the Community about everything that is CrossFit.  So it was all but natural when Open Registration went live on 1-15-2014 that the topics of conversations went to "Did you sign up?" or "Are you going to sign up?" and throw in the "You are going to sign up!" and I have even had a few "Sign your bitch ass up loser!" but it just isn't going to happen for me. 

Let me tell you why.

The single main reason is that as of Tuesday the 21st of January after 6:30 a.m. I will no longer be a athlete of CrossFit Boiler Room.  My six months are up and at this point and time I am just not in the place to renew my dues.  Not a life or death thing, I have equipment at home that I will still wod with.  I will still get up early and knock out my workouts, it just won't be with my usual 5 a.m. crew.  Other things need to be taken care of right now.  So being that I will not be at the box, it is just not ideal for me to take part in the Open.  What I will be doing is trying to lend support and motivation to all of those I know that are doing the Open.  

I wanted to write this and get it out there for everyone so all of you knew that I wasn't simply a bitch or chickening out or scared.  I mean I am a bitch and I would be scared but I would still do it and bust my ass and have fun doing it.  I love a challenge.  Hell, just this morning after taking nearly 20 minutes to finish a wod and failing on 175# Clean and Jerk attempt, I stepped back, took my time and then got that 10# PR on that Clean and Jerk of the 175#.  So I would give it my all and try not to come in last and even if I did, I would embrace being LAST.  Seeing my name of that leaderboard even if it was in the last spot...Shit, someone has to hold all the other names up. 

So there.  Hope you all understand and if you don't, have someone read this over for you.

What defines your family?

Is there something that kind of defines your family?

Well maybe that was not the best way to put it.  Maybe not DEFINE your family but rather grabs a hold and digs into your family, makes you stop and say "That is us!"?

I think for us it is the letter C.  We went on vacation somewhere a while back and T and I saw photos and portraits of different letters.  They literally had so many different styles of each letter in the alphabet.  We of course started looking at the letter C.  We love the letter C. (If you couldn't tell)

From that point on whenever we are in public and we spot a letter C we always take notice.

And someone who I will not name just bought a big massive letter S that is on the fireplace mantle.

Me, I love representing the letter C.  I have many hats that have a C on the front.  Some of teams that I don't even like or have never even cared about but the C looks so cool, so I wear the hat.

Is there something that defines your family that you see in everyday life?

My 2014 Goal Song

I am a musical person.  I have no musical talent except for making up my own rhymes and lyrics to songs that usually make no sense.  So all in all, I really don't have any musical talent.  But music does something to me. I find it easy to use music in a variety of ways.

One thing about the goal I set for myself for 2014, (which you can read here GOAL FOR 2014) is that I used to feel down and discouraged by the door that didn't open, the door that would shut in my face or even the door that just wont seem to open enough for me to escape the room I'm in NOW.

Have to change that.

So, I heard this song for the first time in Despicable Me 2.  Didn't think about much then but the more and more I heard this song over the past couple days, something inside of me clicked on and said "YES".  This song is my 2014 Goals Songs.  With this song in my head I can and will remember that I am what this song says.

Check it out. Turn it up loud.  Watch the video and love it.

Because I'm Happy

Cutest Thing Said To Me.............Maybe EVER!

So, I get home last night and one of the kids had heard about a call I had for a job.

He was asking me if I was taking the job.  Asking me if we were moving and getting a new house.

Had to explain to him that it wasn't enough money to switch jobs and that I was going to keep looking.  I was telling him that I had to make a certain amount to be able to provide for everyone.  It was a good chance and it was nice to have some interaction with someone about a job, but it just wasn't enough.

"I will give you the pennies out of my piggy bank"

It warms my heart to know that my 4 year old son would offer me the pennies from 
his piggy bank in order for me to have a new job.

Thanks C4.

Goal for 2014

OK. I hate "New Years Resolutions".  Why would a person wait until a set date to make a change that is meant to change you for the better.  You are doing if for your body, mind, spirit or maybe all of the above.  Maybe you don't like something about yourself and you want to change.  Maybe you want to help others and offer them a change.


I love making GOALS.  Making GOALS sounds so much better.  GOALS can also change or be adapted and increased or decreased.  Increasing your GOAL will make you feel great.  You have accomplished something.  Decreasing your GOAL is OK too.  You are not failing at something by making a slight adjustment to your GOAL.  You will hit that adjusted GOAL and then you will feel better and then you can make the change and enlarge that GOAL.

Small, medIUM, and LARGE GOALS can be set.  Try it.

Throw the word "Resolution" in the garbage. Make yourself some GOALS.

I have one GOAL for 2014.  I am starting small.  Just one.  But what is great is that this one small GOAL if met, rather WHEN this small GOAL is met it will lead me into a future that will allow me to make medIUM and LARGER GOALS.

This one GOAL is to............
