Apr 2 -- Substitute teaching: it's not as easy as it looks!
Tuesday, April 02, 2013      5 comments

Well, I got up this morning with the 6:30a alarm and ate my nutritious breakfast. I got the kids up and getting ready for school then hit the treadmill. The plan was to do a mile or 2 this a.m. but while I was walking, school called needing me... Read more
Mar 29 -- Just because I didn't log it doesn't mean I didn't do it
Friday, March 29, 2013      3 comments

I'm thinking I got a bit of exercise today as we made our way through all of the Indianapolis Zoo. I forgot my pedometer so have no idea how many steps I took, but how can you walk for 4 hours and not get some mileage in???? Unfortunately I ha... Read more
Mar 26 -- 5 days to Easter and 5" of snow on the ground
Tuesday, March 26, 2013      2 comments

The weather is warming and we've seen some melting but there's still about 5 or 6 inches of snow on the ground. In some areas, it's over 8 or 9" which is kind of crazy for March. I kind of wish this were a late Easter year because the idea of ... Read more
Mar 22 -- Who knew work could be so fun?
Friday, March 22, 2013      1 comments

I just got in from my first night working as a DSP for my 18 year old son. It was a great night made only greater because I was getting paid to do it! He had volunteered to usher at our local theater group's production of "To Kill a Mockingbi... Read more
Mar 12 -- So tired, so busy, constantly on the move
Tuesday, March 12, 2013      1 comments

This day has been absolutely crazy! How can I possibly go and do all that I have been doing? I must be entering some time warp that allows 28 hrs to each day! This is the kind of days I've been having: 6:30a. Wake the boys and get them... Read more
Mar 8 -- One week of training down, another week to go
Friday, March 08, 2013      3 comments

My return to the workforce is well underway. I logged 14 hours for training this week but am thankful that we get tonight off. Last night I had my first test and got a 98%! Next week I have a test on Monday, hope to have Tuesday night off, th... Read more
Mar 2 -- Haven't done much right today :(
Saturday, March 02, 2013      4 comments

Do you ever have one of those days when you just feel "off" and really don't care? That's me today. Actually, that's been me for a few days now. All week long I've been running and chasing my tail trying to get a ton of stuff finished, and I ... Read more
Feb 26 -- 1st College Visit (he's growing up fast!)
Tuesday, February 26, 2013      3 comments

Tonight I took my son to visit a prospective college. They do not offer the course major that he wants, but I'm not sure he can make a living doing what he wants to unless he is willing to move out of state. He is considering Computer Aided Dr... Read more
Feb 25 -- Nothing but running, and not the fitness kind
Monday, February 25, 2013      1 comments

As soon as the boys left for school this a.m. I started with my day's tasks. I got a lot done, but sadly not all I wanted to accomplish. I did get several sets of "dice" made for our Good News groups, and though I didn't get them sealed, they... Read more
Feb 24 -- An eventful weekend
Sunday, February 24, 2013      1 comments

So much has happened that it's hard to believe it's only been 48 hours. Yesterday, my son took his written test for his beginner's license. He passed and is now legal to get behind the wheel. He drove for the first time this a.m. chauffeu... Read more
Feb 22 -- Ice, ice baby
Friday, February 22, 2013      3 comments

We're blanketed in a layer of ice. The temperature is warming but my car is still coated. My son and I were suppose to visit ITT Tech tonight but I felt the need to call off until the roads clear; wouldn't you know that our road is the worst i... Read more
Feb 21 -- A rocky couple of weeks
Thursday, February 21, 2013      3 comments

I mean to do well with my Spark plan, but lately I feel like I'm failing. Between being sick, crampy, and migrained, I don't seem to be going anywhere. I wanted to push for 6 workouts a week but for two weeks straight the best I can hope for i... Read more
Feb 12 -- Ash Wednesday approaches
Tuesday, February 12, 2013      5 comments

I converted to Catholicism back in college, but I admit that I'm a really bad (aka laxed) Catholic. In fact, I attend a Christian church regularly. There are aspects of the faith that I think are dead-on (no other faith educates and trains bel... Read more
Feb. 9 -- A moment to relax and unwind, then I'll go workout
Saturday, February 09, 2013      5 comments

It seems like for the last several days I've done nothing but go, go, go! School meetings, helping family, church functions, errands, etc....when does it all end? This morning we were in town around 10:30a trying to get things done. My el... Read more
Feb 2 -- Sleeping off another migraine
Saturday, February 02, 2013      2 comments

I went to bed last night with a migraine; it wasn't any better when I woke up this a.m. Hubby was kind enough to fix breakfast but food didn't take care of anything. Around 9 a.m. I gave up and took an injection which, of course, knocked me ou... Read more
