My kid tells folks I'm 24. You gotta swap those numbers, kiddo. :-)
We are looking forward to school starting in less than two weeks. It is really sneaking up fast! We've had our supply list checked off since the end of May. I've had so much fun picking out the Bug's backpack and lunchbox and pencil case and tow... Read more
This is a vent, pure and simple. It is *another* in a line of blogs that is simply me blowing off steam, which is exactly what I didn't want my blog to become. But I've got to get this out, and this seems to be the only place to do that. As alwa... Read more
Does anyone actually read anything anymore?
You all know and do this, too. I log my food. I try to keep track of everything I eat to keep sodium and cholesterol consumption down and protein and calcium consumption up. So whenever we eat out, I go online to find nutrition in... Read more
Moving my ticker... in the wrong direction.
So I weighed myself for the first time in quite a while this morning. Ugh. I knew I had put back a few pounds. I could tell in the way my clothes fit and by what I saw in the mirror. In fact, I can tell by comparing the top two pictures on my Sp... Read more
My apologies to my Spark family...
Hey folks. I've been MIA for a few months now and I owe you all an apology, especially my Birmingham Team, who I feel I have deserted at a time when you need someone to help get the team active again. A leader who disappears with only the occasi... Read more
Guess I won't be around much for a while....
As of 9-30-08, my computer is fighting a battle of its own. Bless it's hard drive, it can't stay up for more than a minute at a time before throwing digital static up on the screen and completely locking up. So, my presence online has been SEVER... Read more
Go, Designers, GO!
Hmmm.... seems like my blogs tend to come on days that start out kinda crappy and wind up pretty good. Today, I'll skip the crappy part and get right to the good stuff....

How to get your cardio while holding a tiny string.
For what started out as a seriously frustrating day, boy, was this afternoon fun! The day started badly because DHL delivered my package to the wrong address 4 days ago, and it's been slightly frustrating trying to get it back. And when I did, i... Read more
Holy Blouse Size, Batman!!
So yesterday, while Hubby and the Bug (sounds like a 70's cop show, doesn't it?) were napping, I ran to Walmart to pick up a few necessities. "I have time," I thought, "I'll just try on a couple of blouses to see what size I'm wearing now." So ... Read more
I am NOT obese!!
So just for fun, I looked up one of those BMI calculators and plugged in my numbers. Quite to my surprise, I am now under 30%. In fact I was SO surprised, I had to look up a couple more just to check that they all came out the same. They did, so... Read more
The surreal carnival ride that is my head.
I'm having kind of a hard time sleeping, so I thought I'd try to do something productive while I wait for the Benedryl to kick in. So this has been where my head has been since Sunday.
I was on eBay Monday night until about 3AM trying to find... Read more
Such a heartbreaking day.
I have had a heart-breaking day. Hubby and I went get some stuff from our old house. We haven't lived there in 2 years (found mold in the nursery and couldn't take DD in, so we had to get an apartment) and finally got rid of it, so we have to ge... Read more

ARRGH! Why can't I find info on Chinese food!!!!
Okay, it's time for me to vent. I don't do it often here. I'm generally a very positive and supportive person. But I have just spent the last 2 hours scouring the web trying to find out the numbers to plug in to the nutrition tracker for the pid... Read more
