Slept in...

Some of you wonder how I fit it all in...

The Answer: I stay up a little later and get up a little earlier

Well last night I was so busy writing and commenting on Blogs and uploading photos on Facebook that I lost track of time and stayed up way past my bedtime.. And this morning I SLEPT IN (Until 7AM, I usually get up at 5:05), which I can do because I work from home on Mondays.. So I don't have 3 minutes to rub together, BUT I do have some super posts lined up for this week :)

In the mean time there are some great reads in Blog Land.

Tall Mom Monday Favorites:

Aron's BQ Marathon Race Report HERE.

Marlene ran 33 Miles in 2 days to prepare for Goofy HERE.

Amanda's Giveaway and maybe Race Report?? HERE.

Erica's Wonderful Life Giveaway HERE.

Lacy who WON her race and 2 Coleman Grills (SO FUNNY) HERE

**Any other GREAT posts floating out there... Let me know.


  • FYI I posed with the Sippy Cup to see who would notice, you Bloggers are on it. Maybe I will Battle test a Sippy cup while running one of these days, it would be a fun experiment.. And I bet the neighbors would truly think I am a loon, like they don't already.
  • GUESS WHAT?? The Tall Mom Christmas Cards are ready to send. If you want one email me this week tallmomontherun (at) hotmail (dot) com..


HAPPY MONDAY!!

Mondays are always the hardest day to wake up. Especially when it is snowing out, and below 30*.

I don't know where I have been, but I have missed on several of your posts. All caught up now.

I saw the sippy cup, and thought, maybe it is some new running cup you are trying out. I slept in too, it felt so good.

Lacy said...

ah sleeping in. Every once in a while I do it, and then I can't recover from the snowball effect. Hope you enjoyed it!

April said...

So funny! I did notice that sippy cup!
Oh sleeping in....what's it like? I think there was a time long ago when I did that...
You are on it girl!! I haven't even made an attempt at Christmas cards yet.:( I better get on it or they may be New Year cards!

Lisa said...

Candice @ I Have Run said...

Your little guy is too cute!! Way to go with the sleeping in. That never happens around here.

I want a Christmas card!! I'm still waiting to get our family pictures back so I can get ours made!

Happy Monday! It must be the day because we slept in around here too.

I Run for Fun said...

Glad you got to sleep in. It must be a happy Monday, then!

Melanie Tait (Mel Tries to Run) said...

You're Superwoman Mello! A sleep in for you is 7am?! You usually get up at 5.05am? That's incredible.

As per usual, an inspiration.

lara said...

Gotta love sleepin once in a while. It's good for the soul.

Meg Runs said...

Mondays from home sound wonderful!!

Lisa said...

We wake up at the crack of dawn, too! I'd never get a workout in if I didn't! Definitely nice to sleep in every once in a while though!

Christina said...

I did notice the sippy cup and thought that was an interesting to pose with. I thought there was a story that should go with it.
