Ooo Ahhh Dance in Smarty Pants

Monday, January 04, 2010

I'm just feeling saucy and snappy right now. I meant well today. I meant to log in and track everything today. But I didn't. I was extremely productive though. I made four bus stop trips today. grocery shopped. cooked a fabulous lunch. helped with homework. played games. Organized my family room and bedroom. Did some laundry (washed, dried, folded and put away! I might add). Finished an Alex Cross (James Patterson) novel. Oh yeah. I was on fire today. Tomorrow--I track! (oh and maybe tomorrow I'll use more capital letters while typing...)

    Sounds like you had a good day. Remember it's not about the tracking it's about the knowing what you should and shouldn't eat. If you make the right choices you don't NEED to track (but it sure is fun).

Waiting. Even though I know I "shouldn't".

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

I have been waiting for the new year to "get back into things". I'm enjoying my time away from (duhn, duhn, duhn) "the tracker". I have been squatting, stretching, walking, eating yogurt, etc. Just not tracking. I'm sure I've gained a couple of pounds (better than 10+). I am happy right now. I even found myself jonesin' for a good long walk--so I took one. It's nice to feel like I am doing well. I will just do better when I "get back into things".

I'm excited for a quite New Year's Eve with my boyfriend. We are going to rent movies and stay in all night. I got a bottle of champagne. Maybe I'll do a little 'shopping' too emoticon for some new 'evening wear'. What are your plans???

    Sounds like just what you need right now - enjoy. As for New Year's plans we usually have an evening at home. A nice dinner, some wine and movies too. Keeping it simple and romantic.
Happy New Year!

Funny

Sunday, December 27, 2009

So while at Christmas eve dinner with my boyfriends family this conversation was overheard from his parents: "Is Erma doing Harry tonight?" Much laughter ensued because Harry is Grandma Erma's boy friend; and what was meant was: "Is Erma with Harry's family this evening?"

Christmas morning brunch with my sister-in-laws parents brought a wonderful round of tickle fighting at the table. If you didn't "pass it on" you got double-teamed.

Day after Christmas was Christmas at my Mom's where "no rules, kamakze Ping Pong is the great sport! If you let the ball go dead (you must play it off of any surface) you loose! My brother played it off his head at one point and I laughed so hard I couldn't see the ball to return it.

Sunday was my boyfriend's birthday. I had great fun watching him unwrap the 6 "boxes within a box" that I wrapped his gift in. At one point he asked if the unwrapping was his gift. LOL!

    Glad you had a great time... sounds like fun.

Speaking of tickling... Christmas Eve at my sister's house, one of the boys ran up to me to tell on my daughter for tickling him, he tells me that Butter is trying to tickle him (yes, he calls my daughter Butter, still don't know why) and I hugged him and comforted him as I told him that I'm Butter's mom and where do you think she learned it from, followed by a thorough tickling. I love sharing the laughs.

Hope you have a great New Year!

Blessings

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

I'm a sap! I am so loving a Christmas filled with gifts that are paid for and plans that are casual. I am soooo looking forward to spending time with my BF's family, Christmas Eve and Day (I get to meet his Aunt from Utah this year). I am looking forward to spending time with my family (day after Christmas). I can't wait for all those hugs! And it's BF's b-day on Sunday! Extra family time!

My daughter and I went light looking last night. I love to do that! I think we are doing it again Christmas eve. I posted a facebook status asking where the best light displays are and there are a few good responses.

I can't wait to be able to sleep in! I have to work Christmas eve day, and may be up early Christmas day (but not as early as normal). What a joy!

I wish all of you blessings too numerous to keep track of this year for Christmas. Cherish the little things and all will fall into place!

Hugs, Jenn

Weekend Christmas-ing

Monday, December 21, 2009

Boy friend and I had a weekend sans my child. Friday night I went out with two of my longest known girlfriends. We celebrated my birthday (very belated) and Niki's birthday (very timely). We had so much fun! Tex-Mex restaurant, excellent Margaritas. I do recommend you get a friend like my friend Amy (the treat-er for this birthday extravaganza) who brings her own flask of tequila to "doctor-up" the "weak" drinks they serve there! I think it is so crazy that she is so like that!

Saturday was BF time! We had lunch at a restaurant where I knew exactly what to order (that is healthy and yummy). I order, get my order, and realize they have changed the menu! I HATE when they do that! They were very accommodating, and I ordered something else, that was surprisingly yummy. Yay for grilled fish taco's with pineapple salsa! Then we went to the Taft Museum downtown, where they had a display theme of Christmases past. I LOVED it! BF would have rather had a root canal. But he took me and that is what I love about him! Then we went to his Catholic services at the Cathedral downtown (I would rather have a root canal then endure organ music). But hen we decided that since we were already downtown, we should check out the festivities.

We walked around in the cold, slightly wet, atmosphere. We went up to the tallest rooftop in Cincinnati. I had never been up there at night. It was slightly misty, so the views weren't clear, but were really neat to see anyway. It was kinda surreal. Then, we got to the train display, 10 minutes after they shut the doors. Boo Hoo! Then went to Fountain Square just in time to hear the announcer say to "keep your eyes to the sky's for a surprise at 6:30". We had about 15 minutes, so we watched the skaters and checked out what else was around. Then some people asked us what was going on, and we were like, ah, clueless--just know to watch the sky's at 6:30. At 6:30, the Jumbo- Tron starts up with 2 elves wondering where in the world Santa could be. Then a spot light appears, swooping around the buildings nearby. It lands at the top of one, where Santa, Rudolph and one elf, rappel down the side of the building. Once they land (on the top of a smaller rooftop) Fireworks start up! It was really cool! What a great time! And romantic...
