t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Boston...Slipped Away

Boston is full. Being the brainiac that I am, I thought I would wait until February to sign up...they would never fill 22,000 spots before that, right? Wrong. The Boston Marathon officially filled up January 26th, without me.

This has been such a part of my world for the last year...I can't believe I didn't sign up sooner. We have the plane tickets....

I guess now it will be an anniversary trip, with a much more comfortable plane ride home.

I signed up to run the Ogden Marathon this morning, May 16th. I will run with a vengeance now.

So sorry Rebecca. I know you were so excited about that. Well, just think, it will give you an extra year to train so next year when you go (and you totally will) you will rock it! Plus, now you can have a fun trip without the stress of the race.

I can't believe it! How incredibly disappointing!! Still, I'm jealous you get a fun anniversary trip. Boston is definitely on my list of places I want to visit one day!

P.S. I bought ingredients to make your muffins today... I'll let you know how they turn out!
