Update to the one day - no stimulants decision
First, thank you to one and all for the suggestions to taper off instead of cold-turkeying it (is that a word?). I appreciate your concern and took your comments to heart.
I did get lots of sleep. I was in bed and asleep before 11:00. ... Read more

Is it rude/wrong of me to make my daughter stay home...

I'm getting to be very picky about certain foods.
For example, I worked in a bakery during my junior and senior years of high school. Yes, I tasted every single one of those doughnuts! Had to!! You can't recommend a good donut if you have not personally tasted every variety, right?
Any... Read more
I need to leave room for a snack
I plan my food for the next day fairly religiously. If I have relatively high calorie foods, I will be at the upper end of my calorie range. That generally includes three meals and two snacks. But what about my last snack of the day?
I... Read more
88 Books on the wall, 88 books...
Yes, you need to read the title to the tune of 99 bottles of Beer on the Wall. Not that they have anything to do with each other, but it may give you a peek into how my mind works. On second thought...
Anyway, my local library has a readi... Read more
Mojo sucking force field?
Traveled to a nearby town for my daughter's softball game. This town runs their softball program a little differently than my town does. They start the girls on one team when they are fairly young and keep them on that same team throughout the... Read more
Sunshine, glorious sunshine!
The last two days have been absolutely beautiful! Temps in the 70's, sun shining, light breeze! Gorgeous. And what did I do? I actually enjoyed it! Saturday morning, after DD had her pictures taken for softball, I came home and started some... Read more

I need two bottles...
I will fill one bottle with the way I am feeling now. Lethargic, a little sick to my stomach, tired, and fully disappointed with myself. Okay, maybe not disappointed. I made choices today and the majority of them were poor choices. I think w... Read more
It's all YOUR fault!!!
Today started out the normal way. Not anywhere near enough sleep, stumbling around, getting ready for work. But, had a DDS appointment at 8:00, so I left home about 30 minutes later than normal and got to work two and one-half hours later than... Read more
Plans, plans, everywhere and not a thing accomplished!
Okay, so it wasn't really *that* bad, but I did not complete my to-do list and I'm a little annoyed. But just a little.
Here are the deets: Stayed at work late for a meeting (same one every Wednesday). Came home and made spaghetti sauce... Read more
Sometimes I CAN be a good mommy!
And I even do it! My son finished his book two days ago. He is required to read for 20 minutes every day for school. Last night he read a book of poems, which is fine. It is "Where the Sidewalk Ends" by A.A. Milne. Great poems, great book. ... Read more
It is only a moment, not the rest of your life
I'm reading the November issue of O magazine (yeah, I'm a little behind) and there is an interview with Julianne Marguiles (sp?). She said that growing up, her mother used to say that to her all of the time. "It is only a moment, not the rest ... Read more
Does it count?
If I do the jumping lunges really ugly? Hands a'flailin', breathing ragged, form...well, what form? Doing the third level of this dang 30-Day Shred, I had two goals (well, three, if you count actually doing it as a goal...and I do!).
One ... Read more
