Caleb's Water Boy Mini Marathon

My Cutie

Got my number, I am ready to GO!

Caleb is the 2nd from the left, bright blonde cutie ;o)

Come on little man, you are almost there! Caleb's in the back.

Swimming the 50. No prob. Swimming is my life!

Mom, you always embarass me, but I am holding back I LOVE MY MEDAL!!

My 7 year old ran for the first time the Hometown Realty Waterboy Challenge. He had to run 1/3 mile, swim 50yds, and then run again 1/3 mile. The running was mostly through the woods too. I walked the route when we got there just to see where they were going.

Wow, I just wanted to share that Caleb did awesome! He did it in something like 12 min. and was the best for the seven year old group. It was funny because the next day he could hardly move. He just sat on the couch and moaned every move he made. He actually came up to me and said he thought something was wrong with him. It was funny seeing him hurt like I would.

What Does Your Handbag Say About You?

What your Purse says About You:

The contents of a woman's purse can certainly reveal a lot about her personality -- is she organized and always prepared for the unexpected, or is she a disorganized free spirit?
According to Allyson Waterman, Lucky magazine special projects editor, a purse can say a great deal about a person. She put "Good Morning America's" studio audience to the test to see whether they could determine which of the four purses belonged to anchor Diane Sawyer.
Below is a description of the bags that were presented to the audience:

Straw bag that stands by itself

This bag is very structured with lots of compartments. It is easy to peer inside. The purse contains:
Wallet, Stamps, Treo, Compartmentalized makeup case, Purell, Photo album, Peppermint gum, Photo iPod, Toilet-seat covers, Wet Ones, Face blotter, Pat & go lipstick OR Gloss on a key ring, Brush-ups, Pill case.

Waterman: This bag owner is organized and detail-oriented, with a place and purpose for everything. This over-organized person has probably updated to the technology age, which helps cut down on the clutter and allows your bag to be more streamlined. Consider it a timesaver -- you never need to spend a night digging through a month's worth of bills and candy wrappers to make sure that your bag has only what you need.

The hobo bag

This bag has no structure; it falls flat when placed on the ground or a table. It is a bottomless pit because it has no pockets, and everything is swimming inside. The purse contains:
Overstuffed Filofax, Papers and bills (more than a month's worth of receipts), Overstuffed wallet, Gum wrappers, Fruit gum, Makeup scattered all over -- lipsticks, compacts, Pens, Post-it notes, Nail file, Palm Pilot, Cell phone, iPod with loose earphones, Loose photos, Sunglasses, Rabbit's foot, Lottery tickets, Kleenex, Train schedule, Toothpaste and toothbrush, Catalogs.

Waterman: An oversize, pocketless bag can easily turn into a bottomless pit with an unsuspecting owner not even knowing what lurks in its depths. To an outsider, this bag is a disaster area. To the owner, it is probably organized chaos. The person who carries this bag perhaps has a hippie-vagabond self-image. She may think she's rebelling against conformity. But is carrying the "in" bag of the moment perhaps trying too hard?
Anybody who chews a fruit gum is a great friend and eager to please.
Lucky charms and a profusion of lottery tickets indicate a feeling that luck needs a helping hand. Men hardly ever have these things because many of them believe that they make their own.
She's a woman who wants to do it all. She's working on a system of organization but hasn't quite mastered it. But you can't judge a book by its cover. Disorganization can be a sign of creativity. I would never recommend redoing someone's purse -- it's far too personal -- but a few binder clips, rubber bands and Ziploc bags could open up a whole new world to someone whose handbag is in such a state.

Small, gold, metallic clutch:

This bag is not too small of a clutch but small enough to fit inside another bag for an easy "day to night" transition. This bag contains:
Small credit card case with key fob, Lip stain/gloss all in one, Compact, Business card case with cards, Cell phone, Breath mints .

Waterman: This bag is for the party pro. She knows how to consolidate and be minimal, and she is always on the run. This is definitely not the bag of a girl with a 9-to-5 job. Her needs are pared down, and she doesn't feel compelled to carry around a lot of useless junk. The emptier the bag, the more confident the girl.

The "grab and go" bag

This bag has everything a woman needs to go anywhere in the world at a moment's notice. It contains:
Passport, Perfume, Cinnamon gum, Usually a Ziploc bag of lunch, "mini pharmacy" , The mouth to mouth "condom" (CPR device) .

Waterman: Those who have very large bags filled with things like magazines, sweets, headache tablets and so on are catering for an enormous number of possible events during the day. They're thinking about whether they might get hungry, bored or ill. It indicates a more methodical personality.
Cinnamon gum is for the person who is interested in adventure, somebody who is outgoing and looking for new and novel activities.
The "grab and go" bag belongs to Sawyer.
