Please Join Me At My New Site

Hi guys! While there aren’t many of you, I have enjoyed writing for my few, but dedicated, wordpress.com followers for the past month. So much so that today I’m moving from WordPress.com to WordPress.org. This is primarily because I wanted to be able to have more control over my site. It’s nothing fancy but it … Continue reading

Please Don’t Mind the Construction

Please Don’t Mind the Construction

Not that you can actually see my construction but I’m not really in blogging mode today. Soooo…in the meantime I thought I’d share some fun things about myself. Or some not fun things about myself. I think bloggers try to emphasize the good, which is important but we’ve all got bad qualities too and sometimes … Continue reading

Life is Beautiful

Life is Beautiful

Those – contrary to what I thought when I first saw them – are not rats or furry lizards. They are kittens who have only been alive for a matter of days. Will called me at 4:30 today in awe/panic to tell me that he had found three abandoned kittens in our driveway. Now Will is terribly … Continue reading

Working Girl

While there are a lot of difficulties about maintaining a blog while also holding down a separate full time job, the most frustrating to me is that I feel like my blog has a big hole in it. I spend the majority of my day doing something I can’t (and often wouldn’t even want to) … Continue reading

Wings Two Ways

Wings Two Ways

Happy Monday, friends! I spent most of yesterday being a grumpy grouch and then, for no real reason, as I was folding a mountain of laundry at the end of the day, my mood lifted! It’s the darnedest thing how my mood changes so quickly for no reason but I’m happy to be happy today. … Continue reading

Easter Baking: Carrot Lemon Muffins

Happy Easter everyone! I’m not very traditional about Easter but I’m as happy as the next person to have a holiday to celebrate. Especially since most holidays are food oriented. Yesterday, despite feeling a little drained from my run, I decided to experiment with a new spring feeling muffin. Since we weren’t going to be … Continue reading

Nine Miles Down

Nine Miles Down

Like many Saturdays, today began with preparations for my long run. Oatmeal and coffee. It works. No reason to mess with a good thing. This is my last week of the single digits. Next weekend I break 10 miles and a new personal record. Way back in the day, my mom and I completed our … Continue reading

Sack Lunch: Part V

We’ve made it to Friday! It’s been a week, let me tell you friends. Unrelenting headache, work deadlines. But we’ve also had a fun time here looking at various tips and tricks for bringing your lunch to work. No sooner had I hit publish on this post than I heard the announcement that chocolate rum … Continue reading

Man Down (Sack Lunch: Part IV)

Man Down (Sack Lunch: Part IV)

Here’s the downside to packing your lunch the night before – you end up eating what night-before-you thought would be good, not what you actually want to eat. Sometimes this results in too much food (if lunch was packed when I was hungry). Today’s lunch is the result of packing when I had absolutely no … Continue reading

Sack Lunch: Part III

Sack Lunch: Part III

More fun lunch adventures today! By far the best tip for creating a healthy lunch the night before without spending your whole evening in the kitchen is leftovers. Often this just means making a larger portion of what you plan to eat for dinner. Doesn’t get more simple than that. Sometimes, however, I don’t portion … Continue reading
