Monday, March 12, 2012      0 comments

Last year, that was my word for the year. I decided it should actually be a word I strive for for a lifetime, not just one year, so I kept it for this year. I want what I do to be deliberate, thought out, consciously decided on. I don't think go... Read more

Saturday, February 18, 2012      0 comments

Now that school is back in session and I have hours semi-set there, I've decided that I need to get the rest of life somewhat scheduled, too. I think I can fit in exercise if I schedule it - 'cuz let's face it, it's not going to happen just by h... Read more

Is it progress if I'm not staying anywhere near the calorie range I should be at but I'm at least recording it all? LOL. I am having a bit of a problem because I am not planning out my meals ahead of time. Today I ate breakfast so early th... Read more

black friday near-miss
Friday, November 25, 2011      1 comments

I determined yesterday that I would not bother going out early for Black Friday sales. I don't have a lot of money, and there wasn't anything in the circulars that screamed out at me, "BUY ME!! I'M PERFECT FOR YOU-KNOW-WHO!!" I got up this mo... Read more

So yesterday we moved the desk from M's room to the livingroom. I've set it up here before, but never with the intention of using it as a desk. It was just here for storage, and because we had no place else to keep it. This time, I don't have to... Read more
