Ugh... Did I really do this? Friday night 6 of us went to a local winery for some wine and live music. I ended up drinking WAY too much wine (and probably not enough food - just cheese and crackers) and ended up drunk. Wine hits me so ... Read more
A night out on the town

My hubby and I are going out tonight. Since we had kids, this is a rare occasion. We don't have family close enough to babysit for free and I am way too cheap to pay a babysitter. We will be going to a winery to enjoy some wine and live... Read more

Old habits do not die, they will always be with me. I have been eating healthy and exercising for the past 10 weeks. I have worked very hard the past few months getting my mind and body used to these new things. I would think that after 10 ... Read more

We got back from our mini-vacation yesterday evening. I am back at work today and still trying to get back into my normal routine. I haven't worked out since Wednesday - Yikes! I have been on my feet most of the past few days, but nothing tha... Read more
Cleaning the closet
Thursday, March 12, 2009      2 comments

I have the day off work today so I went through my closet and clean everything out that either didn't fit me (too big - the too small stuff stayed) or that I didn't like. I have a huge good-will pile in my room now. It felt really good to get ... Read more

The biggest loser competition in our office ended today. To be honest, only about two of us took it seriously in our local office (the contest was with several offices accross the US). I am not going to judge or point fingers. That is their c... Read more
