Vacation Bound
Wednesday, November 14, 2012      1 comments

I'm so excited about my vacation. Each year my sister and I get away from it all. Well at least I do; she's usually doing a presentation at a conference and I get to tag along. This time tomorrow I will be coming in from working on my tan!... Read more

I gained 3 pounds this week and have no one to blame but myself. I know that I didn't follow the Simple Diet (not enough vegetables/fruits) and definitely not enough exercise. I also ate out twice last week. What's my plan? Start jour... Read more

Last night my mother and I were talking about our plans for Thanksgiving. I'm running the Turkey Trot (5k) in the morning and will go home afterwards. She said something about holding dinner until I get there. I jokingly suggested that she di... Read more
Candles in the Wind(ows)
Sunday, November 11, 2012      0 comments

I have my candles in the windows and have decorated the mantle with snowmen- stuffed, glass, ceramic... I'm burning my pine candle and the house smells of Christmas. All that's missing is the music. We had a beautiful service today. I'm ... Read more
Last Bike Ride
Saturday, November 10, 2012      3 comments

I rode my bike to the storage unit. I left the bike and walked back home with two boxes of Christmas decorations (its about 1/2 mile each way). I'm slowly working on putting up a few decorations. My sister and I are going on vacation n... Read more
Too Early for Christmas?

I really miss the pool. It's been closed for at least 2 weeks; no date for when the heater will be fixed! I went to Zumba this am and I guess I'm done with the gym for the weekend. I have to play at a service tomorrow morning for no Zumba. ... Read more
Needing air
Thursday, November 08, 2012      1 comments

I caught the tail end of an interview on CNN. A gentleman was talking about finding employment in this tough economy. He said, "You have to want it like you need air." I started to think how this applies to more than wanting the "'perfect" jo... Read more
No (Green) Coat
Wednesday, November 07, 2012      2 comments

If I have to explain to one more person why I'm not wearing a coat, I may explode. There's two parts to this story. When I was in middle school I needed a coat for winter. I couldn't find "the" coat so my dad took it upon himself to buy me a c... Read more

Tidaiy was weigh in day; No loss no gain. I can chalk this up to not exercising at my normal level and other stuff going on. But I'm back on track this week. I know I wasn't getting enough vegetables in but they don't seem to taste as good wh... Read more

We had our first "training" session for the Turkey Trot 5k. So far there are four members of my department who will be running. We walked/jogged for 2.8 miles today! Its quite different jogging with others; I couldn't keep up but I didn't sto... Read more
Fall Back

Somehow I managed to change every clock in my house EXCEPT the one in my bedroom. So the alarm went off at 4:45 and I laid in bed until 5:30. I got up, loaded the dishwasher and got dress to go to 8am service (an hour early)! When I realized ... Read more

I had a really successful day at the craft show. Unfortunately when you work alone you can't visit the other vendors; so I didn't get a chance to add to our economy! I did have a chance to walk/jog after I returned home. I'm worried about... Read more
Out of the Mouths of Teenagers

At the end of the block, one of my students and I are standing by my desk. I’ve known this young man for 3 years. He looks at my outfit (blue striped shirt and blue pants) and says “Miss Kain, you need some new clothes. You aint a Lane Bryant... Read more
Gym Visit
Thursday, November 01, 2012      3 comments

Today was the first day that I was able to go to the gym. I've been doing dvds at home, but there's nothing like getting your groove on at Zumba. My plan is to visit twice tomorrow (Zumba at 5:30 am and Aqua Zumba @ 6:30pm). I'm partici... Read more
No Tricks or Treats

I've made it through Halloween without eating ANY candy. I made gift "pumpkins" for my staff, fixed a basket for my secret pal and made gift bags for my student aides -- all with candy. I gave the leftover candy to my university students tonig... Read more
