Deter me once, shame on you (work)....Deter me twice, shame on me (I will not be deterred)
So, today had all the potential makings of another 14 hour day at the office. I got in around 6:00 AM to get ready for tons of meetings, employee fee... Read more
Well I'd rather be lucky than good.
My damn good luck made me SWMBO's hero tonight....you see it's her birthday. Yeah, yeah #2 son and I took her out Saturday for an early birthday celebration, but today's her actual birthday and it just w... Read more
Well I easily admit I am a sometime slave to fashion. Lately the idea if High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) has been tempting me.
After December's hip surgery, one of the ortho docs I made friends with, a 40-something guy who had both ... Read more
Well we had a nice birthday dinner out for SWMBO....and I stayed within range for the day, even with dessert!
I took her to the Magnolia Grill here in Ft Walton Beach ( www.magnoliagrillfwb.com ) a place we both like and we kn... Read more
Well last day of my staycation....and I'm actually looking forward to going back to work!
It's been good....and I've actually ended up spending 2-4 hours a day in the office anyway, but it's been nice spending time with SWMBO, working out..... Read more
So day 4 of my staycation went very well. Still had to spend about 2 hours at work for a telecon, but, by riding my bike there, I made sure to go for a nice long ride afterwards. Finished up a few more honey-do's around the house, then made an ... Read more
Well I'm taking a few days off from work this week, we're not going anywhere, just spending some time with SWMBO, getting some honey-do's done, getting connected back and active on SP, and working out a lot.
I went out for an early morning ... Read more
Jif....creamy, sweet, savory, peanut buttery Jif.
It's my downfall
I don't know who decided it would be a good idea to crush peanuts and blend them up into a creamy concoction you pump into a jar, but it was sheer genius I tell you. T... Read more
So here's my danger zone; it's not that I can get too busy for Spark People....oh no....I enter the danger zone when I have too much free time and give myself permission to take it easy.
Here's the story of how I, by taking a week's vacatio... Read more
Ahh routines....home, work, gym....life is good!
We had an awesome family vacation....memories that we'll be talking about for years. But we're all glad to be back home too.
We found just the right balance between rest, adventure, tour... Read more
Well our Santa Fe adventure continues to be a blast (I leaned over to SWMBO during one of our walks and asked if she might consider moving here when/if I ever retire....quizzical, non-committal look and a grunt)
We're digging the cool, dry ... Read more
Well Spark friends, our first full day in Santa Fe was a blast!
We're a little tired, but we're making an early night of it so we can do some no-kidding sight-seeing tomorrow.
We started off by getting up at 4:00 AM so we could do our ... Read more
Well we finally made it to Santa Fe, at the tail end of one of my more hectic weeks.
I had planned to take Friday off, but my jaunt into the office to "knock out a little paperwork" turned into an 8:00-5:00 labor of love. Then I hit the gym... Read more
Well, my relaxing Sunday just got quickly filled up with activities.
SWMBO pulled a muscle in her neck yesterday (I sometimes call her "Grace" for the uncanny way she has of stumbling or doing odd things that result in injury. This one appa... Read more
It really is too easy to slack off from blogging. Like anything else good for us, it's only as good as our dedication to making it a part of our lives.
"Well what else have you been up to" you might ask?
