It finally happened!  Last night we watched Rocky!  It was pretty good too.  I can see why it won awards and has become a classic.  The one shocking thing is that he never actually ran through the snow carrying fallen trees like I had been visualizing during my late night runs out back.  Jeff thinks that might happen in part two or three and I am not committed enough to searching through multiple movies trying to find it. I've heard the others are not as good anyways so I am happy just to have seen Rocky and to have the visual picture of him running through snow with trees over his back in my mind even if they are fabricated images that I have created on my own.  It still motivates me to run when it's cold and snowy and that is what matters most.  His training outfits were very similar to what I run in when I go out back too so that cracked me up.  That I run in clothes that look like they are straight out of the 70's is pretty funny to me.

Other than that we had an action packed weekend. Jeff and I celebrated our 8th anniversary at Hearthstone in Muskegon Friday.  The kids and I went to visit my sister and her family saturday and Sunday we brought my nephew home with us for a super cool sleepover.  Now we are making the most of our time left together.  He goes home this afternoon and then we head directly to our nightly MOPS meeting from the rendezvous location in Grand Rapids!  Other than Rocky and the MSU basketball game I had a television free weekend.  I still say GO GREEN even though they didn't look so good yesterday.  I guess they are saving their best ball for March Madness and the Big Ten Tournament this week!
