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

As most of you know, I am on a ... Read more
