The kids are away and the mom will play!
My kids are visiting their grandparents for one week. And let me tell ya...it is weird. No mid-afternoon texts asking me what to eat for breakfast. No requests to go buy sno-cones and candy. No chores left undone. Nobody ta... Read more
My HRM beeps!
I have had my heart rate monitor (HRM) for about a year now. Maybe longer. I've used it almost every time I've worked out since I got it. In other words, it is not new.
So imagine my surprise when I heard it beep on Saturday. ... Read more
I've been wearing the same swimsuit now for about ten years. Maybe twelve. In that time, my weight has fluctuated up and down sixty pounds. The inner lining is still in great shape! However, the outside part can easily be stretched over a fo... Read more
Pictures of my new table and chairs
The table we had had been hanging around for awhile. I think we got it about the same time as we got my DD (almost 15 years ago). It had an L-shaped bench for seats and was made of pine. It was too big for the space and it was time for a new ... Read more
My Perfect Day
At least in my fantasy world, this would be my perfect day. Well...fantasy world with a little reality thrown in.
First and foremost, the kids will be in school and DH will be at work. Don't get me wrong, I love my family. However, I als... Read more

I took time for myself today
DD had a doctor's appointment (sport's physical) at 4:00. I decided that I needed to leave work at noon so that I had plenty of time to drive home (25 minutes) get her and drive back to the doctor (25 minutes). If you are too tired to do that ... Read more
I'm a reader, aren't I?
So why is it taking me so long to read this book? I got "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" from the library last Saturday. I am now on page 285 out of 563. So just over half way through. I used to read a book like this in under a week! ... Read more
Busy, busy everywhere!
And not a minute to think! Dang!
Work is busy and looking to get busier. My department works with subcons and the products I work with are being shipped to the subcons at an alarmingly fast rate! Although, not as fast as the powers-that-... Read more
I did it! But I don't have to do it again...
A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about a menu item at one of our local restaurants. It was a Peanut Butter Burger. A hamburger patty with hickory smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, mayo and, of course, peanut butter.

How long does one week take?
Holy moly! This week is taking forever. And I'm not the only one who feels this way. All week, it has seemed like the week should be over, or almost over, and it hasn't been! ... Read more
Peanut Butter Burger??
For lunch today, I went with some co-workers to a restaurant called "The Ram." It is one of those restaurants that I don't go to with my family because DS can't eat anything there, DD won't eat anything there and DH isn't interested. Whatever.... Read more
Kitchen cures for gorgeous skin???
I have a magazine (Woman's World) that I read. It is a weekly periodical and every week they have new ways to keep your hair shiny or your nails perfectly manicured or whatever. (BTW...I'm about six months behind, so this was a June issue) ... Read more
Lower body exercises
I have decided that I need to restart my lifting routine. Lifting upper body, for me, is easy. By that, I mean that I know lots of different exercises for each muscle group. I can vary the routine fairly easily using free weights, machines or... Read more
