Pictures of the clothes I got on my shopping trip.
I went shopping by myself on Wednesday. During that shopping trip, I picked up a yellow shirt, a red sweater and a pair of black capris - all on clearance. I also got a black sweater, 3/4 sleeve. It was on sale, but not clearance. Here are t... Read more
Finally did it....
Took the daughter on a run, that is. Knowing that she is taller than me (by about five inches) and younger than me (by more than two decades), I told her to go at her own pace. And sure enough, she slowly pulled ahead of me.
I will say ... Read more
Well, not quite.
Of course, ya gotta try before you can say you failed, right? Yesterday I blogged about running an 8-minute mile with my daughter. The plan was to get up at 8:00 this morning and head out. We would jog/run until someone had to stop (I was ass... Read more
8-minute mile? And not in a car either!
DD came home today and told me that for softball she needs to be able to run a mile in under eight minutes. ... Read more
Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Oh...and giraffes!!
Went to the zoo with the kids yesterday. First stop...African Exhibit! It was a new exhibit and we wanted to be sure to see it first.
There was a boat you could ride (for $1 per passenger) that would take you on a mini-African safari. ... Read more
Five sweet, blissful hours spent in solitude!
Well, solitude from the kids and responsibilities anyway. LOL!
Started the day by sleeping in almost to 8:00! Woo hoo! Left for the gym and got my workout in before doing anything else. Ate breakfast, gathered all the stuff I needed, cu... Read more
I can tell the boy is feeling better.
There are signs.
One - he has taken a lot fewer pills today than he has in the previous two days
Two - he had a friend over all day and they were able to find things to do
Three - no nap for him today
Four - he is insisting... Read more
I want to play too! :(
Water parks are for kids, right? Well, maybe. But I wanna play too!
As most of you know, I am on a ... Read more
Broken bones can change vacation plans
No, not mine. But I wish it were!
DD and DS wanted to go on a bike ride. DS had a flat tire, so they walked the bikes to the Chevron to pump up the tire. They rode their bikes home...or started to. They were racing, of course! You can'... Read more
Everyone gets a haircut tomorrow except me
Well...and Abby...our boxer. DH is going to take DS for a cut. I *get* to take DS. We are all taking Scooby, our Shihtzu/Papillion (sp?) for his grooming appointment...and then heading out to breakfast.
After breakfast, we'll all come ... Read more
The things you learn when you're not trying to
As many of you know, I read....a lot! And when I read, it is not to be educated. I purposely choose light-hearted, easy to read, fun books (if you can call murder-mysteries "fun").
Today I started Janet Evanovich's newest book, Sizzlin' S... Read more
Liquid calories? Dagnabit!!!
Every day that I drive to work, I take a 32oz bottle of water to drink on the way. When I get to work, I fill it back up and put it in the fridge. That way, it's ready for me to drink on the way home. Today, I was halfway to my truck when I r... Read more
If you're going to eat it, then savor it!
I'm sitting here, eating one bag of peanut butter M&M's. I am breaking the "Don't eat after 8:00 pm rule (another rule that I'm breaking!), but I am making sure that I am aware of every bite! I am eating them one at at time, breaking off the o... Read more
New thrills, chills and screams?
As most of you know, I took the kids to the water park (again) today. We've gone multiple times and the wildest ride I've gone on is the Wave Pool. It is a big pool that has large waves for 10 minutes at a time, then 10 minutes of relative cal... Read more
