I don't know

 I haven't blogged in forever. 
Pretty sure it doesn't bother anyone, I just needed a little break. 
Plus my kids had last week off of school, we get Rodeo vacation here in southern Arizona.
We go and watch the Tucson Rodeo Parade every year, we have done this since I was a little kid.
I think it is the largest or one of the largest non-motorized parades in the country.
The kids I love seeing all of the beautiful horses and carriages.
The marching bands are also a favorite. 
My husband took a million kids my older two kids and both of my nephews camping the last part of the week. 
I am sure that they had a great time but the prep work involved for me is exhausting. 
I had to drive to phoenix and back (2 hours each way) to pick up one of my nephews.
Then after the camping trip I made the trip again to drop him off.
But he had a great time and my kids got to spend some time with their cousins so it was worth it.
I just felt like the break from having to get up and get everyone ready for school wasn't actually a break.
I plan on doing absolutely nothing over spring break, no driving.
Oh, also, it SNOWED here last week.
That is just crazy to me, I watched it and played in it and I still feel like it didn't actually happen.
I have lived here my entire life and can count the times it has snowed on one hand. 
And it wasn't a little bit of snow, it was a good amount that stuck and was still on the ground when we woke up the next morning.
Pretty exciting.
On my fitness front I am doing a 30 day Jillian Michaels challenge with a bunch of other bloggers and IG'ers.
So far so good, we are on day 3.
I was really sore yesterday but not so bad today. 
I haven't been running as much as I should, I don't like cold weather.
Plus my new Asics that I thought that I liked, I don't like. 
My toes go numb while running, it is a really weird feeling and I get occasional shin pain when running in them. 
I like them for JM though, and zumba just not running.
So I am keeping them for other workouts.
I went to Fleet Feet and got fitted today for a different pair of running shoes.
I had gone to a different store for this but runners I know here in town told me that I should go to Fleet Feet, that they trusted them more then the other place. 
So I went there and they measured so much more things then the other store had and I felt like they actually new what they were talking about.
So I ended up buying Brooks Ghost 5. 
I think a few of you use these and said you like them in that shoe link up from a while ago.
Hopefully I will love them too. 
All right, I think I bored you enough for today. 
Thanks for reading!
