I live on the second floor of a three-floor condo. We got a foot of snow last night and winds were around 65 km/h today as well. This afternoon, I heard a HORRIBLE noise in my laundry room (which is also my pantry). I was freaked out. ... Read more
Fast Food Fanatics
Wednesday, April 28, 2010      2 comments

I rarely, if ever, eat any type of fast food. Today I was supervising my class at the local college's food court, so I decided to splurge on some "pad thai" (and I use the term loosely). Rice noodles, scrambled eggs, tofu, vegetables... and of... Read more

I started exercising in August. At that point in time, after an hour-long class I was almost immobile the following day. I was literally using the elevator at work instead of going up and down a single flight of stairs... my quads hurt that mu... Read more

Eeeew... I'm getting sick! I've been volunteering in the makeup department of our community theatre lately and I've had my hands all over the faces of 300+ small children this week. I'm 100% positive that's what's making me feel so icky. I've... Read more
Question - Eating the Same Lunch & Dinner
Wednesday, April 21, 2010      4 comments

I went to a meeting today where they ordered in a catered lunch. It was a sandwich, coleslaw, an apple and cranberry cocktail. The sandwich was huge, so I ate half... and it seemed like a good idea to also save half of the coleslaw. At 5:30 t... Read more
