Totally Random Nonsense

February 27, 2013

It is with regret that I announce that I shot my wad on the SLIMpossible diet today. While at the hospital for most of the day, I found myself with about six minutes to scarf down some “lunch”. I made a quick trip to the hospital snack bar and settled on a bag of Doritos […]

What I Learned This Week

February 26, 2013

It’s been a crazy, busy non-stop week. We had things on our calendar almost every evening and I’m afraid that I fell off the mission SLIMpossible wagon. I only exercised three of the required five days, and I was barely able to get in 100 ounces of water. I am hoping this week will be […]

A Title Goes Here

February 22, 2013

For years, my mother-in-law has left comments here on the blog encouraging me to write a book. That thought makes me giggle because seriously, who in the heck – besides the mother-in-law (and probably my parents) – would buy a book written by a loud-mouth crazy person. I can think of maybe three of you […]

I Hate This Story

February 19, 2013

It is a treat having two little boys. They are alike in some ways, but for the most part, the two of them are as different as night and day. At their well-visit a few weeks ago, their pediatrician informed me that at Stevie’s current rate of growth, he will be a 5’11″ / 180 pound adult. […]

What I Learned This Week

February 18, 2013

It has been a crazy, busy, yucky day. And that’s after a crazy, busy, yucky week. And now, here I sit two hours before bedtime with a headache from you-know-where. If I were a bettin’ woman, I’d bet the farm that this pain in my head is directly correlated to the stress in my heart. Because […]

Filled With Love

February 14, 2013

Well, because it is 12:04 AM EST, it is officially Valentine’s Day up in here. Normally, I am all about a special holiday, but I just can’t bring myself to get excited because my sweetheart isn’t here to share in the Valentine hoop-la with me, so yeah, there’s that. Still, I am counting on this day-of-love to be […]

Mission SLIMpossible Update

February 13, 2013

So, we just rounded the corner into week five (of eight) and I am so happy to report I am down nine pounds. NINE! As in, almost ten! I am so stinkin’ happy about that because, well, NINE POUNDS IN FOUR WEEKS AND TWO DAYS. The nine pound loss makes all the 45-minute exercise sessions worth it. The […]

What I Learned This Week

February 11, 2013

I had a glorious day. And by glorious, I mean there was no school today which means NO STUPID ALARM CLOCK FOR ME thankyouverymuch! And since there was no school, that also means I didn’t have to check any math homework. But, just in case you were wondering, Stevie did receive the requirements for yet another […]

Math Blaster – A Review

February 10, 2013

Recently, I received an e-mail asking if my boys (and I) would possibly want to check out the new features on the Math Blaster site. They were eager to get started because they really enjoyed the site the last time they were provided with a membership. Math Blaster is a fun arcade-style video game that incorporates math into its […]

Holding On

February 8, 2013

As I sit on the couch, I hear a thud. I am startled. I hear a whimper. And then footsteps. He stumbles through the hall holding his head. When I ask what happened, he mumbles something about hitting his head on the bed. In flannel Diary of a Wimpy Kid pajama pants, he climbs onto the […]
