I seem to have run in a great circle, and met myself again on the starting line.

My Goals:
I want a sexier driver's license photo to replace my decade-old one, and to lose the "baby weight" before my eldest starts high school in 2014.

I may sound vain, but I'm actually not vain enough, and I think that, by being moreso, I will also be healthier. ;-)


My Program:
Regular walks and hikes, indoor biking, rowing and yoga.

Personal Information:
I'm a brainy bibliophile lucky to have married a Geek with great hair. I have two kids and three formerly stray cats, and every one of us has our own computer. Or litter box.

My husband and I love to cook and eat good food---in fact, we'd often prefer to cook at home, rather than eat out.





Other Information:
Check out my Film Buffs group!

I'm only five foot ten.

No northern lights that I saw. It was cloudy one of the nights that there was to be some possible action. We are pretty far south for northern lights I find. When I was living in Winnipeg I saw them more often, even in the city! I hear some people from around here say they've seen them, so it is possible, but I haven't seen any auroras since moving here.

How come you gotta drive an hour?? Are they in a magnet school? Wow, I would home-school before I got up that early, lol! Google 'school bus" and tell the boys to wait by the curb until one chugs into view then get yourself back in the sack for some down time...

The sixties?! Bwahahahahaha!! I would be SO HAPPY if temps were in the 60's. I woke up to 5 C this morning. Not happy about that! But I have long johns on so I'm good. BTW, 20 C is 68 F. The high today is supposed to be 14 C. I'm relieved to know it will warm up some. :-D

Dear Fellow Sleep Fan: NIIICE!! Feels good, huh! I've increased my walking by about double these past few weeks, and I'm sure that's helping with the sleep. So, there's chronic sleep deprivation combined with couch-melding on the one hand, and righteous, near-Olympian level walking + good sleep on the other. Reminds me of that Zen saying, "Embrace the extremes.."
Here's to continued good sleep and more of the E word! Cheers!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your wallpaper.
I don't live in front of a mirror and, in fact, the only mirror in this house is a very small utilitarian one in the bathroom--just big enough for a man to shave.

Be well!
