Wednesday, March 24, 2010      4 comments

My guardian angel must really love me. We bought a space heater at the beginning of the cold season. It was one of those neat things with several heat settings, a timer, auto on/off, etc. It worked great as we spend most of our time in... Read more

Monday, March 15, 2010      13 comments

I grew up hating spinach. I mean, couldn't even smell it. My mom loves spinach and tried to get us kids to eat it over and over. Now I'm eating spinach salad, stuffing spinach into chicken breasts, putting it into sandwiches, and layerin... Read more
Recovering from the Rodeo
Sunday, March 14, 2010      6 comments

We had a blast at the rodeo. Didn't watch half of it and left during Toby Keith's 4th song because we got tired (and the box was getting a little rowdy). The tickets I'd been given were to a private box. My boss gave them to me. Worked out g... Read more

Two hours until kick off. I am so excited. Would have loved to be in the Quarter for this but watching it at home with DH will be great. I just can't believe we are actually in the Super Bowl. No matter what happens, I'm going to enjoy the e... Read more

Where's our Houston sunshine?
Friday, January 08, 2010      3 comments

It is really, really cold today. Highly unusual for Houston. I only made a mile with the dog after work, and the last five minutes were really hard. I'm convinced it's easier to walk in 95 degree heat and 100% humidity than it is in 33 degree... Read more

Saturday, December 19, 2009      8 comments

I'm not depressed about it right this minute but I'm disappointed in myself. Yesterday I'd have been fine even with the peanut M&Ms but then I had to split a Krispy Kreme with my nephew. Today DH and I were really bad and got Sonic Blasts. We... Read more
