One can close the bathroom door, but regardless of your efforts, the sounds and smells, resulting from your “other efforts,” tend to permeate and escape through the walls and under the door. You can turn on the faucet while squatting and taking care of business; this will sometimes stifle the noise. You can light a match while doing one’s daily duty (or is it doodie?); this wil... Sun, 28 Sep 2008 21:50:30 EST Am I Bringing Up The Rear~Or Is It Sagging?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1137652 I’ve reached the point where I want to target and tone some areas~mainly my butt, gut, and thighs. A friend mentioned the Butt Blaster Video, led by Coach Nicole. With the buttocks being the largest muscle in the body, I’m all for anything that will assist in its reduction! Supposedly, doing this 5 minute routine for 6 weeks will magically make 3 inches vanish from my gluteus maximus. Wow! How awesome if my gluteus maximus could look more like a gluteus minimus!! <BR> <BR> My printer ... Sat, 12 Apr 2008 13:10:25 EST Did the Chicken Cross the Road?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=963683 Hubby and I work for an international construction company. We live the life of nomads, moving from project to project, working from the ground up, coordinating the process of building a building, handing the keys over, then moving on to the next assignment. James is the project superintendent, coordinating all the subcontractors on the jobsite. I am the project engineer, claiming the onsite construction trailer as my domain, coordinating all the paperwork and communication that it takes t... Sun, 27 Jan 2008 16:00:19 EST Is Your Man Potty-Trained? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=933291 Knowing the importance of drinking lots of water, I’d planned in advance for the day. Upon waking, I’d started chugging down my water, so that hopefully by the time we boarded the plane, I’d have had ample time to let the water “run its course,” before we embarked on the two-hour flight. (Using airplane toilets is worse than creating idle chatter with the passenger next to you!) I was in the middle of second-guessing my bladder capacity, when I locked eyes with a guy walking down the aisl... Wed, 16 Jan 2008 23:49:12 EST My Neighbor…Stalker or Saboteur? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=827339 Living in a camper and traveling from one state to another, for construction assignments has been an interesting lifestyle. We’ve made a lot of great friends along the way, while living in various parks and campgrounds. <BR> <BR> A few weeks back, James and I headed out for an extended weekend road trip. Upon our return, we discovered a dilapidated motor home parked in the lot at the north side of us. I scrutinized the set-up…What I found peculiar was the signage placed on the camper…“Cau... Wed, 14 Nov 2007 17:43:21 EST More Than My Gut Is Mushy…. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=818261 Hello my Fantastic Friends! <BR> <BR> This note of thanks is about a week old in being sent out, and for that I apologize. Many of you have noticed and congratulated me on being chosen as a SparkPeople Motivator. When I was first alerted to the fact, it was like winning the crown for Homecoming Queen or being listed in the class yearbook as “Most Likely to Succeed.” (Two honors I’ve never been given, by the way.) I was torn between wanting to send out an immediate email of thanks and wan... Wed, 7 Nov 2007 14:42:50 EST Are my cats sabotaging my diet? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=804014 Blog Warning: The following blog contains graphic descriptions. <BR> <BR> Blog Preface: My husband (James) and I work construction, moving from one project to the next—usually every 8-12 months. For ease with these frequent relocations, we’ve opted to live in a camper trailer. The trailer is large, in regards to comparing against your average camper; the trailer is small (especially the bathroom), in regards to comparing against your average house. We are accompanied by our 2 cats, Bobb... Sat, 27 Oct 2007 20:53:34 EST
