Dang busy weekend...but aren't they all?

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?
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?
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
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)

One of the performing arts buildings:

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

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
