Something my husband and I have been talking about for a while has been the ability to throw food away. When he grew up resources were scarce. He lived on a family dairy farm and with 7 children in a rural area there was not much of an opportuni... Read more

I woke up this morning as my husband was getting ready to leave for the day. Normally we wake up at the same time (5:15am) and he gets ready while I wake up slowly. Today he was out the door by 5:15 to get to work an hour early since our dog has... Read more

I weighed in yesterday and the scale said I gained 3 lbs. I know that is not the most it could have been and I have been trying to keep a good attitude, but sometimes it is so hard to do that. I am determined to go for a walk with the dog tonigh... Read more

My little girl turns two tomorrow (really at 1:16am) and I just love the little imp that she is becoming. Her grandmother says she sees so much of me in her, and then she starts to climb and test her boundaries (which I apparently never did). ... Read more

My little girl is not yet two and she has become my personal trainer over the past few weeks. It started because her brother (who is just shy of 4 months) lifts his legs in the air in an attempt to figure out how to roll over. One day I laid o... Read more
