Last night Brad and I had another couple over for pizza and wine. Too much wine, not enough pizza. Uuurrrrgggh. Spent yesterday cooking. I had been away the past two weekends and didn't get to fill up the freezer with anything. We now h... Read more

Today Was a Good Day...

And not the kind that Ice Cube rapped about... Woke up for a run, got the heart pumping on some hills. Phew! Honey and I went grocery shopping at BJ's for some cheese and short ribs. Got a mega-big package of dental floss, too. I love ... Read more

Not a plan in the world.

Today I was awake at 4:30. And not in an "oh shoot it's only 4:30" kind of way, but in a "hooray it's Friday! I want to get this day started!" kind of way. For April, I planned not to plan. I have been trying to focus on a million thin... Read more

As lots of you know, Brad (my honey) is a chef and he works crazy hours. The very nice thing is that he cooks at home (when I came home from school today I had some bread dough all ready to go in the oven for dinner) but the not so nice thing i... Read more

I know this is cliche, but I really *don't* know how the days got away from me and I haven't blogged! Last night was my final meditation class. This class has helped me in more ways than I know... I'm sure I will be reaping the benefits fo... Read more

Since I did the 5K, I don't have a very long race report. Wake up after less than five hours of sleep following a late flight into Pittsburgh. Break my no-coffee-for-Lent thing. (But I went back to tea today.) Bundle up. "Warm up" at... Read more

Snow Day, Snow Day, Number Nine...

Wednesday, March 23, 2011      1 comments

You know the rhyme "Engine, Engine, Number Nine"? Today was Snow Day #9. We will be having school on Flag Day. Brad and I had pizza for lunch and I got to be lazy (again). Cleaned a bathroom and did some laundry. Got almost everythin... Read more

Snow Day #8! Yes, 8!

It's hard for me to believe that yesterday afternoon I went for a run and today I was off for a snow day! The phone call was a total surprise. The best kind! I indulged in a snow day waffle with homemade whipped cream. The last two snow ... Read more

Happy Spring!

I woke up with every intention of keeping it lazy today. But that just wasn't in the cards. I re-organized the upstairs and moved some furniture around... did tons of laundry! Made some bread dough... I LOVE fresh baked bread. It's so nice ... Read more

Sleep, glorious sleep

This is the second day in a row where I have come home from work/errands/shopping and crashed on the couch. I slept for about two hours tonight when I came home, and I did the same thing last night. I don't know if I'm fighting something off o... Read more

Fast and Furious

So after a couple glasses of wine, my thoughts are coming rapidly and in list form. - This meditation class I've been taking has been wonderful. I feel much more calm in general, and I have been even MORE positive. A few colleagues and my... Read more

The Man Side of the Gym

Thursday, March 17, 2011      6 comments

I can't even believe it. Yesterday I made it to the gym right after school. One of the busiest times of the day and I went. I left IMMEDIATELY after bus duty - didn't stop to talk to anyone - and that seems to be the key. Nobody saying "wow ... Read more

Keep calm and carry on.

What a great line. And it's been popping up everywhere... like it's a sign for me. I'm glad I have all of you. Really, truly, I am. I am just about over my muffins sticking to the liners, and I'm ready for the day. Tonight is medita... Read more
