Good day Thursday, Jan 8 2009 

I had a simple but a good day today. Rachel had swim lessons , so I bought a swim pass and did some laps before and after her lessons. Swimming is awesome! I felt so alive. I had lunch with a good friend and after lunch I saw the most glorious rainbow. Simple, but good day.. you can’t ask for much more.


Vienetta Sunday, Jan 4 2009 

I recently bought some Vienetta ice cream, yummy!! Does anyone remember it? It is ice cream in a mini-cake form with thin layers of crispy chocolate and ice cream. I believe it was discontinued and they brought it back for a limited time only. I have to restrain myself from stockpiling this stuff. Natalie and Rachel were so impressed, they couldn’t stop talking about how good it was.

Free Calories Thursday, Oct 16 2008 

I was reading Ashley’s blog and she said,” calories don’t count if it was eaten during a hurricane”,so I started to think when else do calories don’t count..???

1. When eaten off a child’s plate

2. When eaten off spouse’s plate

3. The free samples you get when walking around Sam’s or BJ’s

4. After a couple of beers or cocktails

5. ok Beth mentioned crumbs, crumbs definitely don’t count.

6. Also, I thought the calories consumed “while cooking” the tasting that is done to make sure your meal is just right..

If anyone else has some “rules of when calories don’t count ” let me know and I’ll add them in..

Rachel said her room would be much cooler if she had her own mini-fridge. Why is my four year old asking for a fridge?

Rachel Quotes Monday, Feb 11 2008 

The other week at church babies were getting baptized. I whispered to the girls, look the babies are getting baptized. Isn’t that cool.
After it is was over Rachel says, ” Those babies are hypnotized now?” Oh that Rocks! Way to funny.

Is it going to Snow here?

New years.. Sunday, Jan 13 2008 

I always have the same new years resolutions. Get healthy… (aka lose a few pounds) , Be a nicer mom, and actually try to keep my house somewhat tidy.

Since the girls went back to school I’ve done pretty good about working out. I’m one of those crazy people who like working out. I’m always in a better mood if I get to exercise. Its so bad Rachel says,” lets go to the happy gym because it makes momma happy. ” I never really see any physical results but I know its good for me.

Now the tidy house is another story. I hate cleaning. Can I say that again I H-A-T-E cleaning! Although, I know if I keep the house somewhat straight and tidy that it makes life for my family so much more peaceful..

So wish me luck with all this stuff…

I washed my cellphone Sunday, Jan 13 2008 

I washed and “dried” my cellphone the other day.. The poor thing went through a complete cycle of laundry and SURVIVED!! Although I think it sounds like I’m talking into a tunnel. I’m still amazed it made it.
