I count on you guys for accountability.

Whether you know it or not, you have kept me accountable for my workouts.

You kept me accountable for running one 5K per month last year.

You keep me accountable on clean eating.

You keep me from drinking pop.

You even keep me from breaking a rule in public restrooms.

I need you to keep me accountable tomorrow.

I need to get my ass out of bed.  REALLY EARLY.

It's for a really great reason.  I will be really glad that I got up REALLY EARLY.

I am going to release turtles.

Every time my kids hear "Releasing the Turtles" they giggle.  Because that's what they say when they have to poop.  Their dad started it. 

Tomorrow at 6:45 AM,Kemp's Ridley turtle hatchlings will be released at the Padre Island National Seashore.  These events are open to the public.  According to posts I've read on Facebook, attending a hatchling release is one of the coolest things ever

But it's at 6:45 in the morning.  And it's about 30 minutes away, so we're talking a 5:30 am wake up call. 

I hate waking up at 5:30.

I hate waking up at 7:30 if you wanna know the truth.

That's why I need you.

Keep me accountable, willya?

Will post my own photo of amazing turtles.  After my nap.



  1. What a great way to celebrate Independence Day. I can't wait to see your photos. There aren't many things that would get me out of bed that early, but that might be one of them. Enjoy!

  2. Oh GOSH, UGH UGH UGH UGH... I HATE waking up early too. So by now you're up, and there... ...I bet you wish you were in my time zone right now, it's almost eleven here.

    Happy fourth! Much love to you and your bunch!

  3. DID YOU GO? Of course you did! It's like being Facebook official. You made it blog official. That's even more important than Facebook Official. Can't wait to hear how it went!


I LOVE to read comments. Seriously. I check them every day. Insecure? Maybe.
