January 2014

This marked my first week back to real life after the holidays. The holidays were wonderful, fun and even restful! I ended up having a lot of unscheduled time off the week before. I left work at noon on Tuesday (New Year’s Eve) and did not go back to work until Monday of this week!…… Continue reading January 2014

The Curse of The World Series..

Do you know what the Curse of the World Series is when your favorite team is in the series? I will tell you. It’s sleep deprivation. By one o’clock this afternoon I did not think I was going to make it through my day – and I didn’t even stay up for the whole game…… Continue reading The Curse of The World Series..

Breakfast · Dinner · Lunch · Running


Hello there blog readers. Today is the second day of Mega August. I didn’t start the day off to psyched about training after work, but as the day progressed my attitude improved. I slept well last night, and I thank my 4 + mile run after work yesterday for that. I woke up feeling pretty…… Continue reading Thursday

Froyo for Dinner…

Hi there blog readers. I hope you have all had a good Tuesday. Personally, I cannot believe that tomorrow is Wednesday (ok, I just typed Friday for some reason – would it not be amazing if tomorrow was Friday and we already had another weekend?) – but really, Monday and Tuesday were good days, I…… Continue reading Froyo for Dinner…

How is it Monday already?

Hey Bloggies: So, the funniest thing happened this weekend. I never turned on my computer! It was sort of crazy – and kinda cool, too. 🙂 But I did miss you (of course). On Friday after work I had to get a small coffee on my drive home because I was so tired. I got…… Continue reading How is it Monday already?


2012 – Day 30: A Case of the Mondays

Congratulations in getting through day one of the work week (at least for most of us – some of my blog readers start their work week on Tuesdays). Do you ever just want to pat yourself on the back for getting through a day? I sort of want to today. But I’m resisting 🙂 I…… Continue reading 2012 – Day 30: A Case of the Mondays

North End Coffee

The other day I was lucky enough to walk around the North End with my good friend Jenny. While it was pretty cold out, it was at least sunny as we walked around. We popped into a few of our favorite places – Modern was the first place we went into. We bought a few…… Continue reading North End Coffee

Pain, pain, go away.

Seriously, WTF? Ugh. Ok, for the record – today was a pretty good day. Besides the fact that I was so exhausted when my alarm went off this morning I simply could NOT get up and get going to save my life. Nope, I just could not do it. Even though I went to bed…… Continue reading Pain, pain, go away.

Post Race Recovery

Hi All: Sorry I have been away for a couple of days. Not too much to report, but I have survived the last couple of days since the half marathon. I took Monday off from work to recover. My knees were sore, and my quads were not exactly thrilled with me on Monday. But all…… Continue reading Post Race Recovery

Return of Stove Top Oats

You know it is really cold out in the morning when I start making stove top oats again.  It was almost frigid when I woke up this morning at 7:30. I threw on a robe, went downstairs, poured some coffee and watched Morning Joe for a few minutes. Then I got up and went into…… Continue reading Return of Stove Top Oats
