That was scary...
Took my girls out for sushi last night, which is one of my favorite foods in the whole world. But as we were driving back home, my throat began to feel sore and tight and the inside of my mouth to burn, and I realized that something in the sushi... Read more
I'm walkin', yes indeed....
I am currently writing this from high atop my treadmill, using the TrekDesk treadmill desk that hubby ordered and I finally got put together. So far I've been walking for 45 minutes while working and Sparking. The idea isn't that it replaces a w... Read more
Working out while broken
I have managed to put on 15 pounds in about 5 days--quite shocking, but I know that it's water weight from eating too many salty things in my frustration at getting injured. I've already dropped 6 of those pounds, so I'm not panicking.

Shake my tail feathers
The pain level on this is making no sense to me. Yesterday I had almost no pain, but in the night I was really sore. Today I started sore, but got enough better that I went for a short bike ride--it was almost 70 degrees out, so I could hardly N... Read more

Can we get a triple? Maybe a home run!
He's in surgery now. They aren't ruling out triple or quadruple bypass. I have friends here, but it's going to be hours and hours.

Go our team! Beat those guys!
I don't generally watch much sports anymore, even though I grew up with a sports-crazed mom. But tonight is the BCS champion game and Notre Dame is playing, so football is the order of the day! My daughter is a huge fan--her dad went to ND. Poor... Read more
