Lessons Learned

Wednesday, November 11, 2009      0 comments

It has been a VERY tough week. I haven't made the best choices in this arena. But, to my credit (very little), I haven't completely failed either. 1.) Grades were due on Monday. I worked my tail off all weekend to get accurate grades in th... Read more

Not a single piece...

Yep... two people brought BIG ol' bags of left-over Halloween candy in to work and left them there. And I haven't had a single piece! None of my kids' candy either. (We're trying to find somewhere to take it to send to the troops, actually.) ... Read more

Fall break is over. I go back to work tomorrow. I am nervous. Not about my job, per se... I know what I'm doing. I just stress eat. And school is a low-grade, constantly stressful situation. And there is ALWAYS something lurking about. I kn... Read more

My day was interesting... my husband took us all out for ice cream. So much for clean eating! But, we went to a local, home-made place that doesn't use HFCS or other nasty stuff. It's still bad bad bad for you, but not AS bad as, say, Dairy Q... Read more

What's a "spookable?"

Friday, October 30, 2009      1 comments

I forgot to set the timer/alarm last night, so slept in. Which means my 5yo was up before me (at 5:30am mind you!) which means exercise didn't happen. Oh well... I guess I'll call this my rest day. Right now dh took the kiddos out for sleddin... Read more
