Sure signs of baby growing up....

First case of bed head....

and this was after brushing....

Cue Eye of the Tiger....

The girls have been taking this marathon training pretty seriously for awhile now.

Here is a picture taken awhile ago. (Thanks goodness we still don't have snow on the ground.)

I think they both weigh in the low single digits now. Something tells me I better start training more seriously if I am going to be able to keep up with them on this half marathon. BTW....we use favoriterun.com to plan routes. It's awesome.

Just so everyone knows Chase Bank's online bill payment guarantee is pretty much a fraud. I have been fighting with them for 3 months now over a $40 late fee for a payment that mysteriously was never received by the lender. What's hilarious is processing my email's over these months has probably cost them much more then $40 worth of their time.

I guess it wouldn't be that aggravating except I have received multiple contradictory statements from multiple individuals. Sorry family members who work for Chase but I guess I got to start shopping for a new bank.

Ok here is a picture.....

41 pounds!!!!

So I don't know how well this is going to work, but I just signed up with a company that is trying to save the environment by eliminating junk mail. It costs a little bit of money, but I figure it will pay for itself if it cuts down on impulse buys :).

Anyway here is there form letter, I thought some of you might be interested.

Help us save one million trees
Dear All,
We all know that physical junk mail that comes to your house is an annoyance and a huge waste of time. But did you know that 62 billion pieces of junk mail are produced yearly (an average of 41 Pounds per household)? And that 44% of this junk mail goes directly into our landfills unopened?
That is why I am asking you to join me in signing up with 41pounds.org. 41pounds.org is an organization dedicated to eliminating junk mail and helping the environment. For only $41.00, they can eliminate your household’s junk mail by 80%-95% for the next five years. They also donate half of the proceeds to nonprofit organizations, environmental groups and school districts.
41pounds.org’ goal is to save 1 million trees and donate 1 million dollars to various organizations, but they cannot do it without all of our help. Please visit 41pounds.org or call 866.417.4141 to find out more about this wonderful cause.
Thank You,
