Son learned a lesson and I'm not the one who learned him!
First, a little background. Ten years ago, my DH fell from a ladder while at work and landed (all of his weight) on one leg. His ankle was shattered (the 3-D xr-ray was flipping awesome!). Anyway, for about two years, he was not able to help ... Read more
If your spouse wanted to spend some time...
doing something on their own, what would you say? And by spouse, I mean spouse (obviously!) or boyfriend/girlfriend, significant other or even roommate. Someone important in your life who wants to do something that you probably don't like. Sa... Read more
Spark Wheel Theory Update
It is well established that I am a nerd/geek/whatever. A couple of weeks ago I blogged about a couple of theories I had on the Spark Wheel. One was that over time, your average will be three. The second was that the more points you got BEFORE... Read more
Selfish or just dig-dillyishly optimistic-arino?
Today, I got up and headed to work, same as any other work day. Except that I knew my son didn't feel good and would be staying home from school. I called the school from work to let them know he wouldn't be in and to arrange homework (he LOVE... Read more
The best laid plans...
can go to heck in a hand basket in the blink of an eye! (Do you think I get any more sayings in one sentence?)
I packed my breakfast, lunch and snack for work today and decided that I would do my workout after a dinner of chili and cornbre... Read more
No, not price tags for the skin, but it seems like they should be good for something like that. You have a skin tag on your arm, that means you are eating too much sugar. But, nope! Apparently, they are genetic. At least that's what my mom t... Read more
I tried, but didn't quite do it.
I had quite the ambitious to-do list for today. Grocery shopping, laundry, gym/30day Shred, library, make chocolates, clean myself up for bunco and bunco. Those are the things I did get done. I missed cleaning off the vanity and broken entert... Read more
I finally get to watch Week 7 of BL!!
I don't watch a lot of TV. Okay, let me rephrase that. I don't choose what is on the TV very often. The TV is, in fact, hardly ever off in my house (DH thing, maybe the topic of another blog on another day!). Even though the TV is on, i rare... Read more
New sign at work
I work at a mid-size semiconductor company and have for almost 17 years. (Dang! That's a really long time!!!) Earlier this week, there was a new sign by the door where everyone badges in (yes, Big Brother is watching!). It said something to t... Read more
I really need to dress better
I saw my silhouette in the window while I was doing my 30-Day Sadism...I mean Shred. i tuck my shirt in because a couple of the moves are in the plank pose and my shirt tends to move to my shoulders and over my head. Not real conducive to exer... Read more
I didn't gain it overnight. Can I expect to lose it overnight?
OF COURSE I CAN!!! I can also expect my children to do what I ask the first time I ask it. To clean up after themselves. To notice stuff that needs done without me asking. I can expect DH to be happy that I'm making healthy and dang tasty (i... Read more
What is butt dust?
Got this in an e-mail from my brother and had to share.
What, you ask, is 'Butt dust'? Read on and you'll discover the joy in it! These have to be original and genuine. No adult is this creative!!

Gargle your heart?
I'm doing the 30-Day Shred with Jillian Michaels. Today was the 4th day I did Level 2 and I noticed something that I hadn't heard before. During the second circuit, during the cardio part - doing jumping twists - she said that she wants us to ... Read more
Party all the time, party all the time, party all the tiiiiiime
That was an 80's song wasn't it? Sure hope it's stuck in your head now too, just like it's stuck in mine! LOL!
Anyway, today was my son's birthday party. I made the cake last night so at least that was off my list of to-do's today. AND, ... Read more

Kicking butt, close to goal, sabotage?
I have noticed a pattern in my lifestyle. Every time I seem to be making progress, I decide that I can relax a little and I'll still be okay. That means that I eat a couple thousand calories per day and maybe I'll go to the gym. Okay, I still... Read more
