Football practice is forcing me out of my rut!
Football practice for my son started this week. Even though he is not released to play/hit/block/tackle/etc., he can do most of the warm ups and running. His practice is every night (for the first two weeks) from 6 to 8. I prefer to stay at h... Read more
Sat in the sun
for about an hour today. Maybe longer. It was really cold (to me) in my house and it is my weekend so I decided to take it easy. I could have cleaned, but I didn't. I could have done laundry, but I didn't. Could have organized, but I didn't... Read more
Burnt semi - coulda been so much worse
In my status, I mentioned that the neighbors at the end of the cul-de-sac had a fire early this morning. I wanted to go see how they were, offer my assistance and (of course!) find out what happened. But I also didn't want to be a nosy neighbo... Read more
The value of tiny goals, and I do mean tiny!
Last night, DH and I went to the gym. I decided that I really need to vary my workouts, so I got on the treadmill instead of my beloved elliptical. I started with a walk to warm up and after two minutes started running/jogging. To me it was r... Read more
Fancy cut does not equal fancy sliced :o(
I am not a big fan of green beans. The flavor is okay, but, meh, I could do without them. When I was a kid, I used to put ketchup on them so I couldn't taste the green beans. I could eat heaps of them then! LOL!
Now i eat green beans ... Read more
More rules that one MUST live by
Since the last time I blogged about rules that I could (or couldn't) break, I've been keeping a running list of other rules that MUST be followed. No, really! Or ELSE!
When I fold clothes (on laundry day), my clothes go on the left of th... Read more
Starting back over again redoing once more
How many ways can I say it? I have recommitted (again! LOL!) to losing that last five pounds. I would then be in a healthy BMI range (instead of just at the bottom of overweight) and my clothes would/should fit better...or at least still fit! ... Read more
I LOVE playing softball!!!
Yesterday afternoon, one of the ladies I work with came and asked me if I could sub on a softball team that night. I had to get some details (where, when, etc.) and call DH to make sure that he didn't have plans I didn't know about. He didn't ... Read more
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

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
