Progress and Initial tests
So, I started the 200 squats challenge today. According to the chart, if I could do more than 31 (for my age group) I ranked "excellent". I did 70. That's excellent even for the young whipper snappers (under 30)! Woo Hoo! So, I'm starting o... Read more
Challenges and dinner - no, not related!
Okay, dinner first. DH made tacos. Yum! Even if he made stuff I hate (like Sour Patch Kids), I would have still said THANK YOU and eaten it. Read more
Griping can be effective
My status yesterday mentioned that I was tired of cooking. I mentioned it to my DH as well. He has agreed to cook dinner tomorrow night! Yippee!!! Every once in awhile, you just gotta let people know when you're done and they can pick up the... Read more
It's bad, but I laughed pretty hard...
The guy I car pool with is an avid cyclist. The road to and from work has a portion that is VERY windy with no shoulders. I personally would never ride my bike on that road. Drivers have difficulty seeing other people on the road and there is... Read more
8-minute mile and more
Okay, I was supposed to do an hour long DVD for my workout today. My heart just wasn't in it. So, I decided to go for a short two-mile run/jog instead. About two minutes into it I decided to see if I could run an eight minute mile (one of the... Read more
A nice lazy Sunday
Slept in until about 8:30 this morning. DH made breakfast (YUM!) and then I headed to the gym. Oh, did a load of laundry first. Only took a little over two hours to wash and dry the entire load! I LOVE having my dryer vent clear! I will def... Read more
Tired, but done good...and dryer news!
I slept in until 8:00 this morning. I didn't really want to get up, but I had things to do and only a few hours to do them (like every other day!). I got some laundry started and then told the kids I was going to the gym. The ONLY thing they ... Read more
So, we lost two out of three games, but we were still scheduled to play again. We got there and were told that we might not play until 7:15 (two hours later!). Luckily, the team that forfeited to us didn't show again so we took there spot in t... Read more
Day 2 of the tournament
We were scheduled to play today at 5:00 and we're playing one of the other teams from our home town. We got about 40 minutes into the game when we started seeing lightning strikes. Up until then, the girls had been playing very well. They wer... Read more
Results of tournament, day 1
Our first game started right at 5:00. Unfortunately, the other team only had seven girls. Need eight to play. We pitched to them. The deal was we would play until either an eighth girl showed or three outs. We got the three outs before thei... Read more
Ohhhhh...that's what I was thinking!
Tonight, we had a four hour practice scheduled. Yes, four hours with 10 teenage (or almost teenage) girls. There was a huge improvement in attitude, energy level, teamwork, you name it! We worked on everything we could think of and the girls ... Read more
What was I thinking?!?!?
OMG!!! Can you say AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH? Tonight was my first practice with my daughter's softball team. What a bunch of GIRLS! LOL!! They were jibber-jabbering the entire time. Sometimes, the jibber-jabber was mean-spirited, sometimes i... Read more
A laid back day
Slept in until 9:00. Made breakfast since today is DH's birthday. Took a nap. Went to a meeting for the softball tournament. Made dinner. Went to the gym. Will finish a book. Can't ask for much more than that!

Yard sale, softball, HPC, laundry...
A typical Saturday for me! Our subdivision had a community sale and, since my daughter's first game of the day was cancelled, we decided to set up for it. We did not have as much traffic as we did last weekend. Turns out it is graduation week... Read more
I didn't fall, I jumped...
off the wagon, that is. I had a coupon for buy one get one free - McDonald's Breakfast Sandwich. That is too great a bargain to pass up, so I bought two Sausage, Egg and Cheese Biscuits (for the price of one! Read more
