Just subbing and wanted to tell you guys a funny. Anyone ever read "The Clan of the Cave Bear"? I read them a long time ago and just picked up the first one again recently. In the first one the magician/medicine man guy is named Creb - only, now, I can't read it that way. Every time I see the word my brain automatically goes "c-reb" as in "c-reb-run"! I've read over a hundred pages and I'm still doing it in my head every time I read the name!

subbing, even though i am on a running hiatus [for no good reason, just finding it hard to stay motivated]

one of my students came up to me after class and said she was working on a project for a different class where she needs to profile a noteworthy/noteable/famous living female scientist. she asked if i could think of any and sadly, i could not. you guys know i operate in the arts/design world, so science is not my forte but i was starting to get MAD [at myself] that i couldn't think of a single one of the top of my head.

that said...i know geo, or kerc, or any of you smart women would surely have some examples for me... the 'noteworthy' part means they need to have invented something or made some newsworthy strides in their area of expertise, etc

ok - i hope all is well with everyone. i am reading along, waiting to jump back into training once i feel better and get motivated. soon, i hope.

Gosh, Proudmom! Your comment surprised me so much! I feel like such a newbie/wannabe still. It made me realize that, like I used to say when I was first getting into running, we are all runners no matter our mileage or speed. Not joggers, which conjures up a plodding, slow image. We are runners!

Aw, Megs I believe it's totally okay to let your kids see you cry and struggle. It makes it more acceptable for them to learn to express their feelings. It's really okay. I just read what Monica said...she said what I meant to say!! Glad you're feeling better today!

Monica Dh needs some better listening skills! I'll have to check out that Alive.

Wow, LuLu! We have such an international board here! I love it!

WTG, Schatz!!!

MissBliss I so related to this, "What my schooling did for me, was to install a lifelong distrust of teachers, schools, and administrators." That's why I'm so intense about making sure my kids grow up loving to learn in a positive environment. I still can't stand school at 37! Everytime I take a class in some subject I love, I become disinterested and don't do the work like I think I should. I still do fine, but I feel antsy and never connect with the instructors. I keep thinking I'd like to go back to school and then panic sets in!

In bigger cities, I think that public schools are often wonderful. We just live in a tiny town with few resources and everything is getting cut for the WASSL. You can't even take physics anymore and most of the foreign languages have been cut or are only offered occasionally, so if you didn't catch it the first time around, you can't continue on. Kids aren't getting enough high level credits to go to major universities because those classes are cut for WASSL prep. It's insane! There is no art or drama and very little music. They have this whole "Afters" program to try to meet those needs. I teach knitting one session a year for that, and this session starts today! There is no gifted program. The best we can hope for is sending our kids an hour away during their Junior and Senior years for the Running Start program at the community college.

Patti Ann, what a wondeful idea! I skipped my run today and plan to make it up tomorrow. That's perfect! I look forward to running for Wendy and Penelope.

RM, thanks for the new thread!! You used the name!

hi everyone! i'm in the airport in San Diego. had a wonderful day yesterday hanging out with friends, not having any responsibility for a day, and enjoying a little bit of warm weather. I ran for an hour, from my friends house to my old surf spot and back and it felt really good. also, i've been diligent about doing abs and pushups while I'm here. trying to start a new routine.

looking forward to being done with traveling. dh sounds really tired and overworked so it's about time I return to being a mommy.

talk to you guys tomorrow!

jaygee - yep, i'm definitely on the spinning bandwagon. and swimming too, since i can't run these days. yay on your long swim!

mandy - glad you're enjoying ca. hope your return home is ok. my kids have been wearing me out since i got back from my conference sunday. next time i need to plan some kid time after returning before going back to work (though i'm not sure how to do so, given conference schedules).

cherylann - nightmare school scenario! my fingers are crossed that my kids can get into the wonderful elementary a few blocks from us, and after that, who knows.

monikita - you asked about challenger schools. i have no personal experience, but checked out the website. i came away with a mixed impression from a psychological motivation perspective:

good
- teaching kids that learning comes from effort rather than innate ability
- providing each kid with constant challenges that are hard enough to be interesting but not ovewhelming

bad
- teaching kids to focus on academic "achievement" rather than learning
- encouraging kids to base self-esteem on academic achievement

since i study the motivational costs of basing self-esteem on performance, the last thing is a big negative for me that would probably keep me from choosing such a school. also, gobs of evidence shows that focusing on learning is better than on achievement, so that is also a concern. then again, it's hard to tell how these philosophical points translate into day-to-day practices at the challenger schools. there are likely other schools that have the bad of the challenger schools without the good, so i don't know how they compare to other options. however, compared to my son's montessori school, which really focuses on learning being driven by curiosity, the challenger schools seem problematic. i'm interested to hear perspectives of anyone with direct challenger school experience.

gotta run prep for my second class

Starting February at the Dingo Cafe is the way to go!!!

Thanks for starting the thread RM!

Eks - I'm contemplating signing up for an event in April, but haven't gotten motivated yet...

Poppy - that sounds like a great assignment... here are some that popped into my head - Lynn Margulis (endosymbiotic theory - that our mitochondria evolved from bacteria that were engulfed by early cells, same w/ chloroplasts in plants, incidentally she was married to Carl Sagan), Jane Goodall (the primatologist), Hunter Lovins (natural capatalist, sustainability), Eileen Collins (first woman to command space flight - recent - although I have to admit I had to look up her name I just remembered the news about her). That is tough to think of, but then it is also hard to think of men that are alive and famous for science....

HBM and BBM, this is belated, but I loved the pics that yall posted! They are all so sweet!

MissBliss - I Mrs. Piggle Wiggle!!! What a great blast from the past!

PattiAnn- that is a great idea - Plady - your family will be with me on my run tomorrow!

Megs - glad you are feeling better

Monikita - I am sorry about your tough time with DH

CherylAnn - loved what you said about being runners. Sometimes i catch myself saying that I like to run and then brush it off no, I mean jog, but I am going to try to say runner, that sounds strong!!

Shanti - can I be in on the secret sprinter thing too : I am new but love doing stuff like this... what do we need to pm you?

Mandy - I'd love to hear more about San Diego, we're thinking about heading that way for a weekend soon...

Callie, mom to Nora (12/7/05)

subbing...
The girls came home with a note from school today that one of the boys in 5th grade died yesterday. They didn't know him and neither did I, but my heart is breaking for that family.
Go hug your sweet kiddies extra tight.

Subbing. showed her nasty head last night, maybe if I blame her for my torpor this last week I can get past it?

Must do the run that got pushed off the plate yesterday just as soon as DH comes home from the dentist.

When ABD came up in the old thread, I meant to sarcastically quote our nasty-ass schedule to illustrate. This is before DH told me he basically has to have his first chapter revised and the draft of #2 done by the end of the month. Thank you life for kicking me for my thoughts even though I did not even articulate them. :

that's just so awful, HBM.

plady, I will be honored to dedicate my run to you and Wendy, if that's okay. I have been trying to do "intentions" on my run for people and I will lift her and you up, and your new little babe as well. :

puts my "problems" in perspective today, which is a good thing.

love y'all.

Thank you Patti and all of you mamas. It is so sweet for you all to be thinking of us, I just feel all warm and loved.

I ran today! I wondered if maybe running would stave off the puking so I took my dog out for a couple miles. It seemed to work, I felt good while running and the nausea never came back afterward. Now if only I could have that same hole in the morning schedule every day!

HBM - That is so sad. Any idea what happened?I hope that family has the support they'll need.

Megs - Glad you are feeling better. I clearly remember a time or two when I was watching C crawl around and I'd just burst into tears. She'd come over, looking confused and that made me cry even harder. Those hormones can be cruel but I agree with Monica and others who said that there is value in children learning that grown-ups can be super sad and that it goes away and it's okay.

Dr.Jen - That is so funny, I'm sure I'd see exactly the same thing.

CherylAnn- Definitely time for you to face the fact. You are a Runner. Wannabes do not train for marathons the way you are.

OMG I just noticed that some toilet paper from our roof bathroom has caught the wind and is papering our house! I wish I knew a good way to post a picture, the tp is just streaming out of the window. I'd better go try to reel it in before it's too late!

Dingo Cafe sounds like a great place to be!

Dr. Jen..that is so funny.

HBM...heartwrenching news.

SallyZ..you are "sounding" good

grnmtnmama..It's fun hearing from you on your trips

eksmom.. I think I'm doing the fun run at my kids school..I'll pm it to you..it's 5k

Yesterday at my daughters dance one of the Mom's I always talk to just had a lump removed from her breast and it's malignant. She's my age and has a 5,3 and 9 month old dd's.

I'm doing non cardio workout this evening. Weights and pilates.

Plady - I found in the early months when I was running was the only time I wasn't sick... I can't recall when you said you were due?

Oh Mommabelle what a horrible experience for your friend. I hope she can take care of it easily.

Jo - I am LOVING your blog. I stalk it regularly and it gives me hopes of doing something on a much smaller scale. Think chickens and garden.

Sally - when you settle in your new digs, pm me your addy and I'll send you a little care package. I loved the dipes...but my chunka chunka love already blasts out of them. Sigh. I just retired all of his 0-3 month clothes. He's six weeks old.

HBM - Loving my babies.

I am not running. I am not going to run. It is too freakin' cold. I will run once it is out of the teens. I'm sorry I'm being such a wuss. Once upon a time I was hard core. Now...I'm a milky mess.

mamabeth-the motto worked. Just back from 2.4 miles in the dark.

BBM-I don't blame you. E is only 6 weeks, I wouldn't expect you to be hardcore. Do some baby snuggling instead. That has to burn some calories, right?

HBM-how awful for that family.

Must go shower, but wanted to check in. I think I really need the accountability.

my kids don't even really know what grades are. I just want them to enjoy learning and know it is alright to make mistakes. Some great discoveries are made that way. I check their work and know they are doing fine, but don't want them to be stuck on a letter grade. How many 7 year olds do you know that are so excited when their new grammar books come in the mail. I don't want to extinguish that love of learning they have. I'm probably not making any sense right now, but just wanted to chime in on the subject.

I don't know exactly what happened with the little boy, but the note said he was in a wheelchair and had been sick for quite a while. It was a really sweet note with a picture of him at the bottom. They encouraged all of the children that knew him to write/draw about him and bring those to a box in the office to give to his parents. I thought that was really sweet of the school to do and hopefully with help his parents through this in a small way.

Plady-I will decide whatever exercise I do to you and Wendy tomorrow. I couldn't help that maybe she was somehow behind the flowing TP. Sounds exactly like something a little one would do. Just like she's saying "Hi".

While we're talking of dedicating runs...During rough spots on my last few runs I've though of Pumpkinseed and her dad a lot and also of Moonshine and the yucky stuff she's got going on. Just want you two to know you're thought about and loved.

Got another Mrs. piggle-wiggle fan up in here! Holla!

I've heard Hunter Lovins speak. She looks very much the part of the Environmental Capitalist... straight out of a butch Sundance catalog ;-) It was very inspirational. And mad props to Eileen Collins -- gotta give love to my Air Force sistahs.

Oh whyyyyyy must babies zero in on the one thing in the room that is not safe for them to play with?

I can't believe it's 4pm already. Nevie and I have been nursing/snuggling/sleeping in bed for at least 2 hours. We went up there shortly after our return from the library & grocery store, so it might be closer to 3 hours. LOVELY!

I only got 15 minutes in on the rower this morning during a brief nap she took. Maybe more when Dan gets home in an hour.

Oh... and I forgot to add that I'd be honored to do a run tomorrow in honor of Wendy. I will try not to cry through the whole darn thing. I'll either try and get it in before we leave for PDX in the morning, or after we arrive. good way to shake off the driving.

Plady -- big hugs. Wendy -- sweet girl, you are remembered and loved.

HBM - You are so right! I was just talking to a friend of mine who had babysat for Chiara when she was only about 10 months old. Chiara was crying and crying until finally my friend handed her a whole roll of tp and showed her how to pull on it. I'm sure things like that run in families.

Megs - Thank you too. I will be thinking of all of you tomorrow too.

BBM - My official due date is Sept. 20 but I am preparing myself to push for an induction at 36 weeks if any signs of the liver problem come back. At first I thought Sept 20 sounded soon and then I counted back to 36 weeks, Aug 23! That sounds really soon! Grow baby grow!

Mommabelle - for your mama friend. That is so scary, it just takes my breath away to think of it.

Mandy - Hope you are having a nice relaxing flight home.

Anyone heard anything from Loftmama? I've sent an email or two but no replies and no action on her blog (not that I'm stalking or anything
Just curious, I know this is probably a pretty stressful time for her.

Also, where's Janessa? Hey J! If you're lurking around it's time to start posting, my mom asked me about those shoes!!!

Okay mamas, time to look in the fridge blankly while I pretend I'm thinking of making something real and not just reheating last night's soup.

Forgot to say my run tonight is dedicated to Wendy and Plady. I will think of her beautiful pictures and picture her rolling in a field of flowers and giggling about the toilet paper. Tomorrow I just won't have time to run, but tonight will be dedicated to you guys.

SECRET SPRINTERS

For all of you who want to join in the fun - please PM me with your real name and address. Next week I wil put all of our names in a hat and draw them and PM everyone I have heard from with another Dingo-mama's name and address. Send along litle Secret Sprinter notes or gifts throughout the month and then reveal yourselves with one last gift or note at the end of the month - we can pick the date.

This isn't something that requires a lot of spending, except postage maybe. If you want to buy something, great, but homemade things, favourite recipes, friendly notes, etc work too. The idea is to have fun opening the mail each week during this dreary part of the year.

Several people have already sent me their info - if you haven't yet, do it soon!

subbing. Ran 2.5 tonight, was very slippery out yuck

Plady--I haven't been doing so hot, at best 2 runs a week. Shiah's having a rough time right now with school so been a bit overwhelmed. I shamefully haven't tried the shoes yet. Will get to that asap to see if they will work and if not pass them on
