while I was on my walk/run this afternoon. I left work early because I had a TON of things to get done tonight. Student-led conference with my daughter, make and eat dinner, softball meeting (I hear baseball is included, but I don't pay attention to them! LOL!), and my workout. Oh, and needed to wrap presents for the boy's birthday tomorrow (3/3). He gets to open one tomorrow...the rest are for his party on Saturday.
Since the weather was really nice (50+), I decided to head outside after I did my JM workout. (Did my first day at level 2! That woman is a sadist! LOL!). Anyway, as I was in the middle of part of my run, I had a really great idea about what I should blog about tonight. I mulled it around a little, refined it and then put it aside to come back to when I was ready to type.
Do you think I can find where I set it aside to? Of course not! I'm sure it was brilliant (as I so often think I am!), but I couldn't tell you even the general topic now. I can picture where I was along the path when I was mulling, but not what the mulling was about. I'm hoping that the forgetfulness is due to being really busy, not to old age. Probably it's due to being so busy getting old! LOL!
I'll let you know if I find the thought! Nite all!

NBC has a new show called The Marriage Ref. I saw part of it on Sunday (it's premiere) and then a little more tonight on Oprah. For those who haven't seen it, it is not meant to save (or break up!) marriages. It is a spoof-like show where celebrity "judges" hear an argument (or maybe disagreement is a better term) that a couple has. They hear both sides, discuss their opinions and then the Ref makes the final judgement on who wins.
One of the disagreements on Sunday involved a man who wanted a stripper pole in the bedroom and the wife did not. It was hilarious to listen to them discuss and all of the excuses he came up with to have it (our friends will think it's a fishing pole...you can use if for an exercise pole, etc.) The Ref decided that since both partners use the bedroom, both partners must agree on what goes in there and since the wife didn't want it, no stripper pole. Very funny and I happened to agree with that. Not that there is anything wrong with a stripper pole in the bedroom, mind you. As long as you both want one! LOL!
Well...here's where the REF messed up! Tonight, the husband would never finish anything he started (not projects). If there was a carton of OJ with a little bit left and a new carton, he would open the new carton without finishing off the old one. Same thing with peanut butter, milk, toilet paper, you name it! He would NOT finish the last of something. His reason? "Why should I use something a month old when there's some fresh stuff right there?" That burns my butt!!! If he doesn't use the last of something, either his wife has to use it or it goes to waste. The way I interpret it (and you know I am ALWAYS right in interpretations!) is that he is too good to use the last of something, but it is fine for her to use it. Really?!?!?!? What makes you so special that you don't need to be part of this team to keep waste down, save money and use the last of something???? AAARRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!! And the Marriage Ref agreed with him that he didn't have to use the last of stuff!!!!! Okay, TP, who cares. TP is TP. But if there's an inch of OJ left, pour it first, put the carton in the recycling and THEN open the new container, you little prima donna! Okay, done ranting. Just had to get that out there.
On a positive note, DH and I went shopping tonight for boy's birthday. Got him some presents, goodies for the goodie bag (only one kind of candy...the rest are little toys!), and me some new workout shoes!! After we got home, I even used them! The shoes that is.
Off to get some stuff done before I head to bed. Morning comes awfully darn early, doncha know! Nite my Sparkly Friends!

I finally updated my Spark Page! Not a lot, but some. I rewrote my introduction and defined some of my goals. Hope this gives me the kick that I need to get that last four pounds gone! I need to have someone take some pictures of me that I like so I can add those to my page as well. Good thing we've gone digital...it may take a very long time to get a picture that I like! LOL!
In June, I will celebrate both my two-year Spark-iversary and my 20-year anniversary. I'm trying to decide how to celebrate them both. Any ideaas?

Kids are watching Titanic. I wish they weren't. I bawled like a little baby when the mommy put her two little kids to bed while the boat was sinking. I do NOT need to see that again!
DH took me out to dinner. Buffalo Wild Wings. Tried the boneless wings...not impressed. Don't have to have those again. Think of all of the calories I'm saving!
Need some new workout shoes. Keep hoping that I can get the time to go buy some, but it hasn't worked out.
My baby is turning 11 on Wednesday. So far, I've bought pumpkin and frosting for his birthday. He is very excited! No...it's not what you're thinking! (Dirty birds! LOL!) Since he cannot have gluten and is not a big fan of chocolate, I am making a pumpkin cake for his birthday. It is really very tasty even without frosting. But, he likes the frosting, so he gets frosting. Really need to buy some gifts, send out invites, generally plan the whole darn thing! LOL!
Making potato soup tomorrow. If I don't, have of my lunches for this next week will be air. Air is not very filling, in case you were wondering.
Taxes have been filed and we are getting a refund. A new dishwasher is in my future!!! Dish machine...not new kid to hand wash.
Did my fifth day of JM's 30-Day Shred. Good thing it's only 20 minutes! Dang that sucked! But I felt so much better after I did it. I even did full (boy) push ups for the whole first 30-second interval and then four more in the second one before I had to switch to modified. Yay me!
Really should start some more auctions for DH but I don't wanna. I have so many things I should do and I just don't wanna. And I'm a grown up so I don't have to so there. Ppffftttttt!
Okay, that's enough for now. Brain is less full now. Not of anything important, mind you. But I'm sure we'll all sleep better now for my sharing. tee hee

Does anyone else hate that saying? I realize that it is supposed to be motivating, but to me it just isn't! I figure there are two ways to interpret it.
First, I did it so that means you should be able to. If you can't, you must be the biggest loser ever! Well, I happen to love geometery, especially the logic problems (yeah, I know NERD!). So, to me logic problems make sense and some of them are easy. If I can do them, anyone can! NOT!! LOL!! I have a very good friend who is very intelligent. She just isn't a math person. She can write very well. Very descriptive, very well worded and she'd probably tell me that I used the word very too many times in this sentence. Just cos she can do something doesn't mean I can. And vice versa!!! Ugh!
Okay, second intepretation. I am such a total loser that I can't do anything at all. I did manage to do this one thing. Since I can't do anything and I did this, anyone else can do it, so I'm still not special. WHATEVER!!!! You should never downplay your achievements! Everything you have worth having, you worked for and earned! Don't put yourself down by saying anyone could have done it. You did it and you should be proud!
What put me up on my little soap box? I was watching the Dr. Oz Show at the gym and he started some neighborhood weight loss challenge. The leader of the team was some guy named Rocco (or Rocko or Rock Oh, I don't know how to spell it!). Apparently, this guy has lost about 45 pounds in 6 or 7 months. That is amazing! It is hard to lose weight. If you lose weight because you worked at it, be proud. Rocco is the one who said that if he could do it, anyone can. Grrr.....No, I'm not starting my rant again! LOL!!
Okay, on that note, I'm going to finish my sparking fun, finish my book (only 30 pages left!), and then go to bed. If I can do it, anyone can! LOL!
