Ripple Effect

The Barrish vs CrossFit/Sky’s Limit Fitness case is closed, and hopefully for us the worst parts are over: the waiting and financial stress. The bomb was dropped on my husband nearly 3 and a half years ago, and the sinking feeling of betrayal hit immediately,  and never really let up, even as court date after court date was postponed, …

Where Did I Come From?

Anyone reading this who knows my usual posts probably think this is about one of those tricky parenting conversations. It’s actually not, at all. We’ve had those, though, and they are tricky! And funny. And Ronnie and I tend to explain very differently so Skyler is pretty thoroughly confused at this point, but nevertheless, that’s …

100 Things

My head is swimming, mostly good things. I could probably write a post for each of them, but I don’t have time. So tonight is one of those disjointed glimpses of my reality. Bullet points & all: – I am a darn good cook. I didn’t know that until recently, but it’s true. I’m having …

Wow, 2011.

I can confidently say I nailed this year! In so many ways, it could’ve nailed me. But I got the best of it. I’ve done these recaps on my blog for the last few years (2010, 2009, 2008), and this is by far the most fun year to answer the same questions. 1. What did …

31 Heroes

What makes the natural awesomeness of a three-day-weekend even more awesome? When the highlight is a really cool fundraiser. On Saturday, Ronnie and I had the honor of participating in our local Kansas City 31 Heroes workout, hosted by CrossFit Lee’s Summit, a memorial fundraiser taking place nationwide and even overseas, to raise money and …

Out with the Old…

Labor Day is next weekend already! That means my favorite season is coming to a close, and it’s a little disappointing because I don’t feel like we’ve done nearly enough summery things this year. Other than hanging at the pool, we only made it out on a boat one time, and that was at the …

Fulfilled

Sometimes I step outside my little world and try to look in on it objectively. And when I do, I look upon it and see a life that is very blessed. It’s easy to get caught up on the hard stuff and let it put a damper on all the other good stuff, when we …

Something Much Bigger Than Myself

Have I mentioned I am really enjoying the group workout dynamic of CrossFit? Having that community of people, working toward the same goal, cheering and supporting each other through hard workouts; it’s a really nice benefit that I haven’t ever experienced in my previous solitary workouts. Seeing someone else struggling through another round of push-ups, …

Labor of Love

It’s finally here! The thing I haven’t been able to write about, I am writing about! Today, all the planning and scheming that Ronnie has been doing for well over a year, took shape in it’s physical form. We got the keys and set foot for the first time in the space that is quickly …
