Why Mishaps???

This was my view this morning, dropping J and A to school. Every morning when I come around this lake I think about how pretty it looks when the sun rises. I was able to (mildly) capture what I see….

Everyone’s morning should start out this beautiful!!

I was thinking this morning about this blog…
It has been fun being a part of this world and I hope I have some part in the fun. When I was trying to figure out a name, I wanted to think of things that screamed “ME”!!! Mom, Miles, and Mishaps (3M as I sometimes call it) seemed like a perfect fit.

As many of you know…I am a “MOM”

20140228-211157.jpg</a to my almost teenager ( in T-minus 10 days to be specific!!)…

..my MVP….

…my new running buddy, “J”.
I also have

…my “camera” shy…

…who most of the time is doing something like this…

…younger son, “A”…


Although not part of the name, I’m also a wife to my love, “M”…


I love running and don’t really consider myself a “runner” (I’m working on that!). My many “MILES” are well documented here, either actual runs..

…CrossFit WODs

…or the “miles” I walk in the shoes of a mother, wife, and Physician Assistant.

But the “MISHAPS” is probably the part you most don’t know about.
Exhibit A:

There is a stretch of I-75 in Florida that run through the Everglades, dubbed “Alligator Alley”. I forgot to get gas, figured I’d get it after a while on the road. Hubby reminded me, as I’m driving PAST the sign for the national park..”you know that this stretch is 100 miles?? You won’t make it…”
Ok…freak.the. EFF. OUT!! I go into panic mode! Who does this stuff?? Oh…me! Fortunately God was in my side, about half way down the stretch…the LAST stop for gas sign showed up!!! Thank YOU!!
Exhibit B:

Only I would do something like this (potentially become stranded in the swamp..and NOT my University of Florida Football Stadium!!) and some how, land on my feet. My mother always said I have nine lives!

I hope to document and share all my (and my family’s) mishaps here on 3M. Hope you enjoy them and laugh a little too!
