"Project" Update

Many of you have been asking how the 5K Training is going. It has been going good so far. Every workout is a challenge for me and I thought it might get easier as I go, but that has not been the case so far. I just started week 4 of the training. My sister and I decided to do week 3 twice because it was so difficult. I ran for 12 minutes straight tonight--the longest time yet! I realize that for some this might not be a big deal, but for me it is huge. I run really slow--more of a jog really--but I went a little over a mile tonight. I am very proud because 4 weeks ago, I wasn't sure if I could run for one minute much less one mile. Maybe there is still hope that I can actually do 5K in the end. Wish me luck!

In other news, we had Bobby's Christmas party on Saturday night in San Marcos at the new Embassy Suites convention center. It was fun! We spent the night at the hotel and finished up on our Christmas shopping on Sunday.

Yesterday was the funeral for my friends husband. His name is Timothy Kostelnik. The rosary and funeral were even harder than I imagined and my heart just aches for my friend Jennifer and her two precious little girls. Please continue to pray for them. They will need to be covered in prayer during this difficult time and season.

The week will be busy for us...getting presents wrapped and beginning our many Christmas celebrations. Thursday night, Bobby and I are having his Dad and Mil over and his Brother, Jason and his family over for dinner and to exchange our gifts. With all the places we have to go on Christmas Eve/ Christmas, we always end up missing them and have to get together later to exchange gifts. Friday, I am having my Christmas outing with the ladies from work. We are going to New Braunfels for some pottery painting, lunch, then off to Fiesta Texas for the evening. Hopefully it won't be too cold. Sunday, we are having our Christmas with Bobby's mom and family. Monday, another get together with the ladies from work with our spouses for dinner and a gift exchange. Tuesday, we are having Christmas at my Mom's. Wednesday, with the Billimek's. Thursday with the Schumacher's for lunch and Chumchal's for dinner! Wow..that really sounds like alot when you put it all on paper! Hopefully I will get some pictures put up soon of all of these events and I know I owe you all an update on our FINISHED dining room--Bobby did a great job!

I hope that all of you have a SAFE and BLESSED Christmas.

Please Pray

The husband of one of my dear friends died late last night in a car accident. He was 30 years old. Please pray for her and their two little girls as they deal with this tragedy. I know she is surrounded by family and friends. Please also pray for his family in this difficult time. He was a good man and husband and father and will be missed dearly. Please pray that my friend will be covered with a peace that surpasses all understanding and that the hand of God be over her and their families as they cope.
