I ran across this info today. Here's a way to keep good jobs in the US. Eurofresh's pesticide-free tomatoes have been named "America's Best Tasting Tomato" by the Culinary Institute of America for more than 10 years. They've shown that you... Read more

Well, it's been a stressful week and I'm glad it's over. DH was hospitalized on Tuesday with extremely painful pancreatitis. I think I nearly killed him with the high fat Atkins diet. It probably wasn't a good choice for someone who doesn't h... Read more

My son-in-law's brother died Tuesday night by asphyxiation during a seizure. He was unemployed and had no medical insurance, so his sister did not take him to the ER. If he'd had medical treatment, he most likely would not have died. It makes... Read more

Our grandson stayed up until 2:30 am this morning! He loved watching his grandfather dance to the Boogie game on the Wii. So I got up rather bleary-eyed this morning. I made whole grain pancakes and grandson devoured them to my surprise. Af... Read more

What a day! Stayed up late last night and had to get up early to pick up our grandson. Took him to his first toy store and he loved Grand Rabbit. I had to bribe him with trucks to get him out of the store after an hour. We had brunch and wen... Read more

I'm blogging tonight to complete today's bootcamp challenge and to keep my resolution to blog daily during the bootcamp. I also did the video and rode my exercise bike for 50 minutes. Compared to last year's bootcamp, I'm doing much better... Read more

Missed blogging yesterday because I waited until the last minute and the website was having problems. So guess what, it's 11:53 pm and here I am again at the last minute. So why do I find it so difficult to work out earlier in the day? ... Read more

Starting week 3 of the bootcamp challenge and feel like I'm burning out! This was definitely a needed rest day. I cooked a meatloaf to eat in the coming week and barbecued an extra meal of chicken to satisfy today's challenge. Yesterday I coo... Read more

Went for a short walk for today's challenge. Then Wii bowled to warm up for circuit training. Focused on upper body since the bootcamp video covered core. By the time I finished, my knees were burning. I was able to complete the video though... Read more

Tired today. So took it easy and spent 20 minutes free stepping on the Wii and then 15 minutes bowling to warm up for the bootcamp video. Did that and hopefully will complete the challenge with a good night's sleep.... Read more

Our sick DGS is no longer sick. It seemed like he had to make up for lost time today. We spent 30 minutes chasing a very fascinating trash truck with an articulated arm. We might have actually caught up to it, but each time it stopped to pick... Read more

DGS has strep so spent the day with us and will tomorrow as well. Poor little guy only drank apple juice all day and between the doctor's office and the pharmacy, he didn't get the antibiotics until 3:45 this afternoon. He was diagnosed at 9:3... Read more

Beautiful weather here in Colorado today. My knees kept me from getting out for a walk so I was glad to see an upper body workout in the bootcamp video. I did the video, the challenge and did 31 minutes of circuit training all while watching t... Read more

I can barely keep my eyes open tonight. Walked almost 4 miles today, cooked dinner, warmed up on the Wii for 10 minutes, did the bootcamp video and then the challenge. My legs feel like jelly and I'm heading off to get horizontal! Temps are s... Read more
