Boring Stuff

A woman saved her 5 children from an apartment fire, including 4 week old twins. I thought this was a great story of courage and bravery. And I hope I would be as level headed in an emergency. But I especially liked how her son discribed her:

"She was never really that brave before,” 10-year-old Umar Naseer said about his mother. “Before she was always worried about stuff like nutrition and all this boring stuff. Now she was saving our lives.”

I love that kid.

My computer time is up, and I need to get on with all that boring stuff!


I have been getting up before the sun and wearing earmuffs and mittens to keep me from getting frostbite (actually, this week was warmer than I expected.) And so far I have run 31 of my 75 miles. I still have 44 miles to go. I think I can. I think I can.

Way to go on your running!! That is so awesome.

I loved that story, thanks for sharing.

Speaking of Supermom, how was your Luau (did I spell that right)? It sounded like a lot of fun!

Wow-- I'm so proud of that mom! And I bet her son brought her to tears. And the running-- you go girl!!! :) Sorry I've not been here in awhile... life...

What a great story! You could tell her mothering instincts kicked in right away and she just went into action. I hope that I could be that levelheaded during an emergency, but I'm sad to admit that I'm kind of a spaz. You're so dedicated to run in the cold. Way to go! :)

What a funny quote from that story - said only like an 8 year old can.

p.s. I see blogger is calling me "M" again. Isn't that the name of a character on James Bond movies?

What an uplifting story. Supermom disguised as an ordinary-boring mom :)

I'm never going to catch up to you at this rate. You go ahead my short buddy, may the force be with you.
And yes, you can.
