Still Here, but Really Tired...
This is the 3rd week of 4th grade for my son. He seems to be enjoying it. He was really excited when his teacher allowed him to choose a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book for his book report!
I've never been good at logging on & doing everything I ... Read more
Back to School
A week from today, my son will be in the middle of his first day of 4th grade. His 9th birthday is Aug 26. I hope that his teacher lets us bring cupcakes for the class. I know its a bad eating habit influence, but since only about 1/2 the class ... Read more
My Plan Worked!
I got on the scale today, something I dread, only to find that it was going to be a good day. According to my scale, I've lost nearly 8 pounds. I was shocked!
About 2 weeks ago, I realized that I was not losing weight, even though I was e... Read more
Jogging is hard to do...
I went jogging today, again. I still don't like it, but have come to view it as part of my routine. I left at 9am and got back around 9:45. I ended up walking 3/4 of the way.
I have plantar fasciitis and some days it just simply hurts to s... Read more

Shining...or is that sweat?
On Saturday morning, my son and I went for our regular jog. We were on our way back home when we passed a lady walking with her kids. I smiled but didn't say anything. I don't talk much while jogging unless my son needs encouragement because I t... Read more
My son decided we were going to start a business.
Each summer since my son started school, I have required him to learn something new. It could be as simple as using a stove/oven or it could be more challenging like rollerblading. This year, ... Read more
Recently, I have looked for new and improved ways to relax and have fun. I don't have much down time with an 8 yr old and a 2 yr old.
When school ended last month, I asked my son if he wanted to do anything special or learn anything in partic... Read more
It's Olympic season and I'm seeing well-muscled athletes every time I turn on the tv. Yes, sometimes I'm a little jealous.
I read an article a long time ago about this. Gene Simmons (from KISS, yes, THAT one...) said in the article (I'm paraph... Read more
What have I taught my kids?!?!?!?!?
This past school year, my son and I typically walked home from school together. It's only a mile and it gives him a chance to unwind, talk about his day, and gives us both extra exercise. When the school year was over in early June, we decided t... Read more
