Scheduled eating days
Yep, I have them. There are a few more this time of year, but I schedule days to eat whatever I want throughout the year. They tend to be about once a week, usually Saturdays.
The goal is to write down any cravings I have throughout the... Read more
Snow day for me is a little different than for kids
We had a little over 6" of snow fall on my little valley overnight. This means that the roads were snow covered, slick and extremely slow going. I know how to drive on snow and I know I could have made it to work. However, it would have been ... Read more
Perfect Christmas tree?
It is tradition in my home, and probably many of yours, to put the Christmas decorations, especially the tree, up the weekend after Thanksgiving. This year is no different (except it's too cold and too windy to put up the outside lights).

Snow held off, for the most part
It has been snowing off and on all day here in my neck of the woods. Luckily, it's been warm enough that the snow didn't stick on any of the roads. Made my shopping excursion more enjoyable, that's for sure!
Picked up the ornaments I... Read more
Love the combat shopping!
Started much later than Betsy, but I did start early. Got up at 2:30 (yes, that's am) and met my friend at her house at 3:45 (ish). Straight to Target. The Targets in my area do NOT have line control figured out. Stood in line longer than I ... Read more
Got up early, went to the gym and then ate my way through the rest of the day! Then, poured (pored?) over the ads and made a game plan for combat shopping tomorrow. Can you say perfect day?
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
Taipei 101 plus Nay-one (probably spelled that wrong)
Taipei 101 is (or at least once was) the tallest building in the world.

After the National Museum
After the National Museum, our little party went to the Chang Kai Shek Memorial (cks from here out). There were folks outside practicing dance routines and a flea market in the mall.

Taiwan Trip - Part One
As you know (or you SHOULD know, LOL!), I was in Taiwan last week. I'm going to give a summary and hopefully post some pics in this blog and probably at least one more. It was a week long trip and if I told you about all of it in one blog, you... Read more
I'm sorry, did you say twelve courses?
For one meal? Really? My first night in Hsinchu, the company I was there to audit took us out to dinner. There were 17 of us sitting around a huge round table with an almost as large lazy susan in the middle of it. There were three menus on ... Read more
This is it!!
Laundry is done. Clothes are packed. Morning items are going to be packed as soon as I'm done using them in the morning. Passport is in the folder. Laptop is checked out and charged up. I am ready to go! Read more
Time change, eleven hours sleep, still tired?
I went to bed at 11:00 last night and woke up at 10:00 (according to the clock that had not been changed for daylight savings ending). That's eleven hours of sleep! Read more
Is it too early to pack?
Okay, so I confess. I did pack for my trip to Taiwan last weekend! But I HAD to! I had to pack to make ... Read more
Okay, so what if they don't miss me?
What if, while I am in Taiwan, my family doesn't miss me? And by that, I mean what if they don't miss all of the things that I do for them that seem to go unnoticed.
What if they don't notice the sink is cleaned out?
What if they don't... Read more
Thanksgiving is when???
Today at work, I sat with a few of the guys that I work with. Somehow we started talking about the holidays and the plans that everyone had for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. Sometime during that conversation, I realized that I come bac... Read more
