The Sunday shift
Monday, August 27, 2012      12 comments

Yesterday was an interesting day. After church and coffee hour, DH decided he wanted a light lunch so he opted for fried eggs and toast. I wanted sauteed veggies and used summer squash, green peppers and onions. I looked around for protein... Read more
Excuses for Skipping Exercise
Sunday, August 26, 2012      16 comments

We all have those excuses~ I am too tired-I am too busy-It is too early/too late. And these are the excuses I have used in the past to let myself off the hook. But, thankfully, those excuses sit idle most days. Any excuse I can use to ge... Read more
Back to a more normal Saturday and SparkCoach

Long but satisfying day

A quiet day but very productive
Wednesday, August 22, 2012      14 comments

I am adjusting to the shift of just the 2 of us. The amount of laundry has shrunk by quite a bit. That is the most noticeable item since DS has gone to college. I am still cooking the same as DS2 is here every night for dinner. Tonight w... Read more
Getting settled in
Tuesday, August 21, 2012      16 comments

DS has a great attitude and has adjusted to his new "digs". Granted, more students will be moving in Saturday and it will get a lot noisier and hectic, but by then he will have had plenty of time to move things around to suit him. I had ... Read more
First day of school
Tuesday, August 21, 2012      11 comments

DS reminded me that "This is college, Mom, not kindergarten." I reminded him that is the next step into a new adventure and to just humor his mom. Guess that accounts for the big smile! Thanks for stopping by and I will blog more later. H... Read more
