After dinner last night (I made yummy homemade pesto with whole grain pasta and sundried tomatoes - YUM!), Andrew and I took Hannah up to the Newark Reservoir for a nice evening walk.
I cannot believe I've never done this before - and I use... Read more
To do work.
Not work out, mind you...
If I can manage this, I should be able to manage getting up early to exercise.... Read more
Easy come, easy go -
Yeah, my joy at payday last Friday has been rapidly quelled by bill-paying.
I don't know why I get so jubilant on payday; all of my money's already spoken for and owed to other people.
Andrew and I went to Rehobo... Read more
No, not the delicious candy bar.
PAYDAY, as in MONEY IN THE BANK. Thank G_d.
So excited - Andrew and I are going to the beach with the family tomorrow! I'm feeling poochy and blah (PMS, I hate you), but I am determined t... Read more
GORGEOUS day today. All the humidity has blown out, and this morning was lovely... maybe even a bit chilly.
For as much as I love summer, I have to confess that after the disgustingly hot summer we've had here in the northeast, I'm sort ... Read more
Why do people lie?
Seriously, what is so horrible about the truth? What, you're going to say or do something someone's not going to like or agree with, so rather than do that, you're going to lie about it and risk whatever happens when the... Read more
I have not been sleeping right... and have been having really strange dreams for the past few nights. The result has me feeling under-rested. Which sucks, because I was all gung-ho to get to bed early (wasn't feeling great, anyway) and get up ... Read more
Oatmeal is a super food
Really am convinced of this.
For example, take Better Oats Oat Revolution Cinnamon & Spice's stats:
-Just 170 calories (only 25 of which come from fat)
-NO cholesterol (in fact, oatmeal and other whole grains help LOWER cholesterol) ... Read more
Even Babe Ruth didn't hit 'em ALL out of the park.
So we have this thing at work the first Friday of every month called "Breakfast is Served," whereupon we take turns signing up to bring breakfast goodies to share.
I sign up a lot, mostly because it's the only way I can eat something hot wi... Read more
Finally, some cooler weather! I opened up all the windows last night to get some fresh air and, although it was humid, the air was cool. It was nice to listen to the rain and smell the damp earth as we fell asleep last night.
I'm supposed... Read more
Yay, new stuff!
I learned a new choreography last night... yeah!!
It's amazing how learning something new from someone new can energize and motivate.
Feeling kind of overall sleepy and fighting a little headache, but that's nothing some hot coffee and... Read more
Yesterday was colossally rotten. Truly, the worst day in a while. Work was insane. At least I got to have a peaceful evening, cook a great, healthy dinner for Andrew and I, and relax and decompress.
But - today is a new day! Going to le... Read more
There was a huge fire in my row of townhomes this week. I live in the end unit, but about twelve houses down from me, a huge fire erupted at 1:30 a.m. on Friday night/Saturday morning. I awoke to smoke and flashing lights, and I freaked RIGHT ... Read more
Feel pretty great!
Had a great dance rehearsal yesterday - I always feel better after dancing. We're currently rehearsing for the Peach Festival down in Middletown, and we have approximately an hour of material to learn - wow! Plus - I have to come up with a sol... Read more
Buddy, can you spare a dime?
I'm not one to wish time away, but boy will I be glad when this week is over.
My employer - with whom I am very happy working - has a really DUMB semi-monthly pay system, where we get paid on the second and fourth Friday of each month.
