Merry Christmas!

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

I had a nice Christmas Day with my husband, kids, mom, sister, niece and nephew. I made a big ole messy lasagne. I would love to learn the secret to making it in a way that comes out of the pan. I will try other techniques than the seat-of-your-pants method I used for this one. it used a lot of sauce and was pretty messy. People thought it tasted good though and that's the most important thing!

Hubby bought me a used Ipad for Christmas and I like it. It's an upgrade from my netbook as far as reliability goes. Not so great for blogging though since I'm a typing machine. I could probably benefit from a keyboard, but probably won't get one any time soon. Kids seemed satisfied with their gifts although son's XBox was used too. Even though our new electronics were used, they are top of the line of when they were new with huge memories so that's pretty cool. And they are operational!

I skipped my Wii workout yesterday since I was busy getting ready for today and went to a party, but managed to get 30 minutes today. The party was fun, but several of the guests were hammered by the time we arrived. Our kids aren't used to seeing drunk people. They weren't bad drunks, just loud and used foul language. We left after about 2 hours. It's nice to do social things.

I knew I'd be off the wagon with eating and all my routines with Christmas, but I am getting back on the saddle tomorrow. I even abandoned my water! I have a few things to do but I'm not going to make my fitness and health come in second place. My dad gave me some cash. I'm thinking about investing in some fitness equipment like a ball and some stretchy bands as well as a mat. I do not like to do fitness that requires me to get on the floor because it's hardwood. I have a time getting ON the floor and then OFF! That alone is a pretty strenuous activity for me! I think I'd like to get the fitness pack here on Spark that's been out of stock lately. Maybe it'll be IN stock soon.

I've meandered through my immediate thoughts enough. I hope we all have a great rest of the holiday week and live strong in 2013!

    Yep, a mat is a must if you have hardwood floors! Good luck and have fun spending your Christmas cash!

I got my wish of a Wii fit plus for Christmas, but haven't had a chance to hook it up and learn how to use it yet. Hopefully today or tomorrow!

Glad you had a nice holiday....but now....back on the wagon!

    T o get lasagne out of the pan easily line it with wide aluminum foil twice, make it a foot longer than the pan on both end and curl them tightly together to form handles for lifting it out of your dish, but your will need either a bigger pan or a large platter as lasagne produces a lot of oils that may run off.

Ipad- You could get dragon naturally speaking 11 for it, it is an app that types what you say (no keyboard needed- I love the program and I do not lose my thought while typing.

You will do well have a Happy New Year emoticon

PS I noticed you end lasagne with an e, this is usually done in europe and England. If I may ask have you traveled or live outside the US. I myself have traveled the world when I was in the military and found the other cultures fun and exciting.

    emoticon Sounds like a great time! I'm freezing any goodies and getting them out of sight at midnight. Then, back in the saddle tomorrow also. It's good that you are teaching your kids great habits especially about buying things that are second hand. That's a skill they can take with them out into the real world for sure.
