A Good Laugh

Here’s a good laugh for all of you…Guess when the last time I went to the gym was? April 3rd! No joke. That is funny, isn’t it?! Kinda makes me wonder if the membership fee is even worth it. That one visit cost me quite a bit of moolah! But watch out – with single … Continue reading

Lazy Weekend

Lazy Weekend

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. We were pretty lazy. Partly because we just didn’t do anything, and partly because I wasn’t feeling top-notch.

It was so great to see so many runner’s … Continue reading

Forecast calls for mostly cloudy with highs … Continue reading

And we’re back

Two cups of black coffee today was probably not a good idea. I think I have the “Coffee sweats.” Yuck! Holy, what a fast holiday break, eh?! I feel like we were busy – but manageable. But yet still had time to get very accustomed to sleeping in everyday – ah, the joys of no … Continue reading

Goodbye 2009, Hello 2010

Oh the year is ending and a new one is beginning. And that means it’s time to examine how I would like to start off this new year and new decade. In no particular order or significance, here are a list of a few things that we will call ‘small aspirations.’ Not sure I want … Continue reading
