True Confessions: Welcome to the 2011-2012 School Year

Today is the first day of school for students in my district (Michigan starts late, I know many of your kids have been in school for a week or more already).  My own are now officially high school freshman excuse me while I go sob in the corner. I spent the majority of the morning helping out in one of our kindergarten classrooms and I can't believe my own children used to be that small. 

Anyhoo, I really don't have time to blog today, which is unfortunate since I'm sure there is much that I could be confessing um very little water today, lots of diet coke, lots of rum (but not today yet), candy bars, yada yada yada.  Between all that and swearing at my computer for all the tech glitches today (including the district computers thinking I was a student for about an hour and not letting me get to any of my usual sites) it's a wonder it isn't worse.  I have no idea what my plans are for after school today.  I'm either going to a diving meet (if my daughter gets on the roster) or doing a group Grand Rapids Marathon Beer Run.  I'll let you guess which one I'm hoping for :-)

Instead, I leave you with what you may have missed over the holiday weekend:
On Monday, I introduced you to my latest 26.2 sponsor, my dear friend Kirsten (@girlsworld to all of you on twitter). 
Sunday, I reviewed my week in pictures.
And back on Friday I complained about wrote about fitting in all in.

Besides a little writing, I spent Labor Day with the hubby's family and even managed to get to the beach for a few cold, windy minutes.  How was your holiday weekend?

Would you like to join my sponsors Ben, Erin, Andrea, Lisa, Ann, the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans, Melissa and now Kirsten in supporting me as I train to finish my first full marathon, the Grand Rapids Marathon? I have set up a sponsorship page in which you can help me reach my goal of crossing the finish line (sponsorship will help pay for race fees, nutrition/hydration, shoes, etc). You can click HERE, or click on the tab above. I would love and appreciate any support you can give me. Bloggy and linky love will follow, as well as the ability to sponsor individual miles and run "with" me on October 16th. I cherish all the love and support my readers have given me this year. I wouldn't be attempting this race without you.
