May this New Year bring much happiness and many blessings into your lives! <BR> <BR> Wed, 13 Jan 2010 01:54:46 EST Makin' Bread :) Today I'm feeling better, but tired for some reason! Went to bed early around 9:30pm last night, and was awake early this morning, yet I'm still sleepy when I should be filled with vim and vigor! Going to do a bunch of cleaning today and try out a Breadman Ultra Breadmaker I got at a thrift store yesterday. It looks like it's almost new so I'm excited and am hoping it works well! I used to have one and the piece that turns the paddle on the bread machine itself broke, so I haven't baked b... Mon, 2 Nov 2009 12:56:06 EST 2 Lbs I got on the scale last night and for some reason I keep losing and gaining the same 2 lbs. I wish I could get out of this Yo-Yo-Yoing!

Maybe I'll lose it before the Wednesday for our BLC Weigh-In...I hope I hope... :) Tue, 27 Oct 2009 05:48:11 EST Feeling a tad better ? Been feeling pretty sicky with this junk.

I'm just not ready for winter, but i think it's trying to get ahead of Fall...hahaha! I'd like at least a couple more camping trips before it really starts flying and sticking.

I can't believe that one day can make such a difference in taking him from a Kid to an! Not sure what we're going to do to celebrate it with him. Actually we're not even sure what to get him. He's a gamer but he has enough of that stuff and we want to get him something totally different that he'd like but he'd totally not expect. Hopefully we can come up with something really good to shock and surprise him! But at 18....lo... Sun, 3 May 2009 05:22:03 EST New Biggest Loser Challenge 10 Starting Today Wed.
