An amazing thing happened on the way home from the teacher store....

I didn't stop at Wendy's. I always used to stop at Wendy's on the way home from the teacher store. It's right there....on the corner where I turn to go home. I always got the same thing every time: Junior cheeseburger, Fries, and a Choc... Read more

Well, there's an upside to big batch cooking...and a few downsides. My freezer isn't huge. I'm single. This means that what doesn't fit in the freezer needs to be eaten. And so I am still enjoying the spoils of last week's cook-f... Read more
This week...

Well, other than the good news yesterday afternoon and the engine light stress, the week went fairly well. I cooked most of Sunday and had leftovers all week, allowing me to eat fairly well. Then on Friday, when I made Weeknight Spaghetti ... Read more

So every morning (most of the time) we start our school day with sharing good things that happened the day or night before. Here are mine for today: 1. My engine light in my Jeep went off all by itself and I didn't have to spend any money!... Read more

Tubular Tuesday to you all! Since 2012 began, I've been cooking at home almost all the time. I don't go out much during the week anyway, but I'm not stopping for fast food anymore. Here's the weird part. I don't want it. I'm not... Read more

Sunday was very productive! I moved all of my bedroom furniture around because the feng shui was just not...right. The problem with my bedroom is that I have sliding glass doors where a wall ought to be which makes proper feng shui impossible.... Read more

I flat forgot to blog on Thursday...and yesterday I fell asleep before I got much of anything done! Last two days have been pretty good--hectic, but good. I didn't get back to the gym on Friday like I'd planned for spin--was running on 3 h... Read more

I made SP Cookbook's Three Cheese Macaroni. SO FREAKIN' GOOD. It's not dripping with cheese, but it is REALLY good. I'm curious how leftovers will taste! I'm usually not a leftover mac and cheese girl...but I have a feeling that th... Read more

A friend of mine who is a marathoner had taken some time off from running and recently started up again. She posted the following the other night on FB after going for her first run: "My kid called me a runner!! It's good to be back!" ... Read more

So I got up this morning and went to spin. I had to tell myself over and over that I would have plenty of time to get copies and stuff made when I got to school. After I got there, I was good about just focusing on me, being in the moment,... Read more

Ok...maybe not the iron chef, but I can cook a darn fine meal. I meal planned this morning and decided that I'd use up the last of my chicken and make rosemary chicken in the crock pot from the SP cookbook. To make it a meal, I added cousc... Read more

Despite the meh of yesterday, I dragged myself out of bed this morning and did the 30 minute part of the 28 day bootcamp video. It took a LOT of self-prodding. Self - But the bed is warm...and I can't disturb the cat. Self - But you're f... Read more
Conference Day....
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      6 comments

Well, today was conference day. The way that ours work is a little odd. Conferences are held on one day. Each family has 25 minutes, and there is a five minute "break" in between. I have 23 students, and to get through all of them in one day... Read more
