I didn't exercise yesterday, but I think I ate ok, maybe a little high on sodium since we had Panda Express for dinner (string bean chicken breast, mixed veggies, 1/4 order chow mein, honey walnut shrimp). Need to enter f... Read more
A moldy collapsing floor...
2 weeks ago we noticed that the floor in part of our kitchen/utility room was uneven. It was a small section that we don't walk on because the clothes hamper sits there, and the bin of dog food. We also put our window a/c units in 2 weeks ago,... Read more
It's a boy...and other life-changing events!
When things change in my life, it's never just one or two little things. It's HUGE changes, wether I initiate them, or someone else does. Here are some of the things that have been going on in my life the last 2 weeks (caution, some explicit f... Read more
Wow. This past weekend and the beginning of this week have been quite exciting and emotional. Suddenly both of Jim's daughters are in our lives, he's back to work, I'm getting sleep (finally) and things seem to be going very well.

2 Daughters in 6 months...
Some of you know that my boyfriend Jim has recently become a part of his 15 year old daughter's life (Kiersten). Last September, he finally got to see her again after a 5 year absence. He was over the moon, but sad that he still didn't have an... Read more
Life changes so fast sometimes...
A while back I blogged about the possibility of joining a gym and going in the early mornings before work. At the time, Jim was working 5am-2:30pm, and was getting up at 4am. So I checked out the gym I was interested in, and it just didn't app... Read more

Trying to change my schedule
Lately I've had a tough time getting my exercise done in the evenings. It seems that there is always something else to do - grocery shopping, dishes, laundry, watch a movie, go out for karaoke with my peeps, or just go to bed early. I know tha... Read more

This is my dog Zeus - he does this after he eats, 90% of the time. When he doesn't do his little "happy dog" routine, he barks at the kitchen window, the one that is up too high for him to see out of.... Read more
On Monday, 8/3/09, my 13-year old niece saved the life of her dad, my baby brother. He is highly allergic to bee & wasp stings, and has a couple of incidents in the past where he had to be rushed to the hospital by helicopter because he was stu... Read more
Recent (sad) events...
When I was 2 years old, my mom remarried a man she had gone to school with. He was head-over-heels for her, and was a wonderful daddy to me. My first memories are of he and I playing together, riding a tricycle in the kitchen of our home in 19... Read more
Getting back in the groove...
OK. So I said I was going to get off to a great start in 2009. And I did. For about 2 days. I broke my 12 week exercise streak, and couldn't seem to go more than 3 days on a new streak. I started snacking on M&M's (gasp) and cheese nips (sha... Read more
Getting into the groove for 2009
So I didn't start off the year with a bang...
Things got kinda crazy when the snow hit (we've had between 74"-78" since December 15th). I could no longer drive my car to work because it doesn't have a high enough ground clearance to drive... Read more
