Honesty

How do you teach it? So far, I feel like nothing I’m doing is working with Sam. I praise him on the rare occasions that he tells the truth in hard situations, but most of the time, lately, he tries lying to cover his butt. 🙄 It does not help that Gabe is in the …

All right, where are my glasses?!

Hmph! Anyway… I feel completely listless at the moment. I have no desire to get up and do anything at all. Finished the grocery shopping online, did some work for the family club site…just poking around, accomplishing things virtually, but not moving toward getting out of this darn chair and doing anything in the real …

Sigh

Why do I even bother trying to make delicious, creative meals? All they really want is chicken nuggets and pretzels, or perhaps pizza. 😡 Tonight I made Mini Greek Meatballs, Stuffed Tomatoes, and Baked Sweet Potato Fries, all from the Quick and Easy South Beach Cookbook. I knew better than to try to offer stuffed …

Runs I’m Considering

Hank Aaron State Trail 5k Run / Walk Root River Run Brigg’s and Al’s Run and Walk Joe’s Roll, Walk, and Run Grape Lakes 5K Lakefront Discovery Run Obviously don’t think I’ll do all of them, but this is what I’m debating now. 🙂

Woot!

I did it! 😀 That course was hard. I wound up walking far, far more than I did on my first 5K run, especially at the end; there was one point in that last mile where a hill appeared in front of me that looked more like a wall than anything I could climb (probably …

Muggy Day

Run was not good this morning. I only went two miles. 🙁 We had thunderstorms last night, and it felt like it might storm again the whole time I was out, but it never did – just felt hot and sticky. I felt like panting with my tongue hanging out, trying to get a cool …

Too few calories

I need to start some sort of food log. I realized yesterday at dinner time that, once again, I was way under the amount of calories I should have had for the day – to the tune of not even breaking 1000. 🙄 So I had extra helpings of dinner, but then I was full …

South Beach Chili = Not a hit

Eh, it’s okay. My usual chili recipe, as you can see, is verböten due to the brown sugar and ketchup, so I opted for a recipe out of the Quick and Easy Cookbook, which has so far been nothing but hits. And maybe this one, too, would have been embraced…but my boys are used to …

Yum!

Just made these, only without meat or carrots. They are so good! I’ll be freezing some and eating them for breakfast. I really can’t say emphatically enough how good they are; Gabe stole a bite and agrees. One odd thing, though: I was pressing out the excess moisture from the thawed spinach, using paper towels, …

Fun times

Gabe is shrieking and howling in his room right now. He told me to “GO ‘WAY!” when I tried to talk to him, so he’s up there alone, raging at the world in which he has to suffer the indignities of being two years old. His current source of anger: he wasn’t allowed to bash …
