Is it time for school to start back up?
My kids started summer vacation on Friday (half day). They did okay this weekend. But then again, they each had a friend spend the night and I was home.
Yesterday wasn't too bad. I left them with enough chores and things to do that the... Read more
Denny's on a diet
DH, DD and I went to Denny's for breakfast this morning. (DS was spending the night with a friend.) We hadn't been to Denny's in quite some time as our last experience there was wretched (poor service, bad food). DH had a craving for a Grand ... Read more
Billy Joel, Polly Anna and Justin Beiber
What do these three people have in common? I know who they all are. I love Billy Joel's music. In fact, the first time through college, I used to listen to his tapes. Yes, tapes. Not CD's but not 8-tracks either! LOL! And yes, I know what... Read more
Do Challenges really work?
In my case, tonight, the answer is yes! I had dinner and then headed to the gym. While there, I was thinking about what I could snack on when I got home. I had a really good list going too!
Then I remembered that I joined a "No Snackin... Read more
To be fair...
My status currently says "CARTOONB is the only one who ate the roast beef, potatoes and carrots that CartoonB slaved over!" And it was some darn good roast beef, potatoes and carrots, I tell ya!
Couple of things I should probably point o... Read more
Shouldn't it be the weekend by now?
The last two nights have been late nights due to softball. Therefore, this morning and tomorrow morning will be early mornings. It feels like I've put in a full week's worth of work and I still have two days left!
One of the other moms ... Read more
Keeping book at softball
I have coached and/or managed softball for a few years. I have played softball for more than that. I have never learned how to keep the book. Tonight, at DD's softball game, coach gave me the book and said "Here. I need you to keep." "Oh, a... Read more
Power yoga - meh!
I checked out the DVD Power Yoga Total Body with Rodney Yee. It is an hour long yoga workout and this is the first time I've done yoga. I really liked how well the poses were explained and demonstrated. I was familiar with maybe three of the ... Read more
Not by the hair on my chinny-chin-chin!
One would think by looking at me and my gorgeosity (yeah, I know, not a word) that I couldn't possibly have chin hairs. And, for years and years and years, I didn't. But I swear, when I hit 40 I started getting extra hair on my chin! Read more
Dining out secret...
DH and I went out to dinner last night with DS. We were seated and ordered our drinks and dinners. The waitress tried to tell us that we couldn't order a certain gluten-free item (from the gluten-free menu!!) and we had to set her straight...n... Read more
Biggest Loser for the Wii, etc.
I got to "play" my Biggest Loser game for the Wii. I started with the workout. It was a good workout with warm-up and cool-down. I'll go up a level the next time I do it, tho. After I was done, DS decided he wanted to play. He did some of t... Read more
I will be running tomorrow!
Big, big, big plans for tomorrow! First, get up at 4:00 (yes, that's AM) to work out before coming home to shower and dress for work. Go to work and kick butt until 10:30. Fly back home/DS's school to watch his choir performance. (Side note:... Read more
Seventeen years in one place?
Okay, not really one place, but one company. I started at "my" company seventeen years ago today. I worked nights (7pm to 7am) and weekends and I was pretty happy to do it! I had more regular hours, having just come from fast food, better pay... Read more
For all of my non-math nerds out there
Here is an example of a stem and leaf plot.
1| 2, 3, 3, 4
2| 0, 4
3| 1, 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9
4| 9, 9, 9
The numbers are 12, 13, 13, 14, 20, 24...anyway, you get the idea. I'm not completely sure why anyone would want to want to ev... Read more
Stem and leaf plots will not defeat me!
DD had a softball game tonight. I had a meeting after work, so I got home late, of course. I had time to make myself a sandwich to take to the game and scooch out the door. Oh...and to ask DH to check DS's homework to make sure he did it AND ... Read more
