It's hard to sleep when you can't breathe
Sunday, January 02, 2011      8 comments

I have a cold or a sinus something going on. It's not too bad as long as I don't change elevation. Or lay down. Or try to breathe. Actually, while I'm awake and moving around, I really feel fine. However, laying down last night proved to be ... Read more
Look at me go!

I have a rule that Christmas decorations MUST be down (at my house, anyway) by January 6th. Since I have this week off, I decided to get the tree and decorations done today. I "let" the kids help. I even recruited my DD's friend to assist. ... Read more

When I am shopping for someone for a gift, whether it's for Christmas or a birthday or whatever, I like to have a list. Please tell me what you want and I will do what I can to find it for you. Please don't make me guess. I *want* to get you ... Read more
Not the Christmas trip I was expecting
Sunday, December 26, 2010      8 comments

Most every Christmas, my family and I go visit my in-laws in the mountains. They live right on the Big Lost River, right up in the mountains and they always have snow at Christmas. This year, we were about an hour from home when the gaug... Read more
Boise State beats Utah!!
Thursday, December 23, 2010      4 comments

Or should it read "Boise State wins despite their best efforts"? Man it was an ugly first quarter. I swear that both teams had dropsies and weren't really ready to play this bowl. BSU pulled it together for the win, but it was a stressful gam... Read more
I like heels
Tuesday, December 21, 2010      6 comments

The shoe variety, not the people-who-are-jerks variety. Much of my short, young life (I might exaggerate a bit, but you can ignore that) I have been a tomboy. I grew up on a farm with two brothers. When my mom got "dressed up" to go out... Read more

If you do not want to know how to make meat candy, stop reading now. If you do not want to know how to make the most delicious, bad for you dessert ever, stop reading now. If you don't like meat or sugar, stop reading now. I got ... Read more
Ham and bean soup...such memories!
Friday, December 17, 2010      8 comments

My department at work had our Christmas potluck yesterday. We had smoked turkey and ham. The ham was spiral cut and on a huge bone. Guess who got to bring the bone home? Yep! This gal! Growing up, I can remember my mom making ham and b... Read more
Not my greatest week to date
Wednesday, December 15, 2010      9 comments

Sunday started my week and it was pretty good. Exercised, made PB balls, wrapped presents, stayed in calorie range. All in all a good day. Monday started pretty good. Exercised, in calorie range, 5+ freggies, got stuff done at work. An... Read more
Dang busy weekend...but aren't they all?
Sunday, December 12, 2010      5 comments

Saturday - up at 8:00 (yep, I slept in). Gym. Moxie Java for a gift card. Home for breakfast and start laundry. Take the boxer (Abby) in for shots so she can be boarded over Christmas. Poor puppy has an ear infection, so we got me... Read more
Two servings of cookies and STILL don't hit the carbs range?
Tuesday, December 07, 2010      13 comments

Most of my meals today were fairly low in calories. So, I needed some snacks to make up my calories for the day. First snack was an apple and string cheese. The next snack was a Fiber One bar. Third was two ham and egg cups with broccoli and... Read more
Form letter in the Christmas card?
Sunday, December 05, 2010      16 comments

I know that most people do not like the form letters that come in Christmas letters. All of that bragging and who has time to read four pages, printed on both sides in size 8 font? I have better things to do, right? Well, you wouldn't say... Read more
Scheduled eating days
Friday, December 03, 2010      8 comments

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
Wednesday, December 01, 2010      10 comments

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?
Sunday, November 28, 2010      10 comments

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). ... Read more
