Today I rested all morning. Sean stayed home sick today, so I hugged him up. I also didn't sleep well all weekend. I rarely do when I'm working. So at 2pm today I rushed to get my workout in before the rest of the kids came home from school.... Read more

Well, I've been exhausted today. I didn't sleep well. Politics always bothers me, and last night was our caucus night. I know I need to get involved, I just have to stop obsessing over it. I stayed up way too late to see the results, and th... Read more

Today I swam for 30 minutes, including 1000 backstrokes (2 sets of 500). It feels great to have such a streak going. It definitely makes me more motivated to keep up with it. I'm trying to get my motivation back for eating better. So far,... Read more

Christmas Cookies

Wednesday, December 21, 2011      7 comments

I thought I'd explain a little about my Christmas cookie tradition. The thing I remember most about Christmas as a kid was that my dad would bake cookies, lots and lots of cookies. He counted one year. He had made over 3000 (yes, three thousa... Read more
