I did day 2 of my couch to 5 k program (see coolrunnings.com).
It's cold. and snowy. E wants to go play outside. I will have to bundle us up for a walk outside this afternoon when (hopefully!) it is a little warmer.
I was looking though photos, and I realized that I have a bunch of photos I took for the purpose of posting to the blog, that I have totally neglected. Anyone want to see photos of my grape juice process, now that all the grapes are gone, and we're drinking up the results?
I realized I have 8 months of receipts to enter into quicken. That's probably 10 hours of work. Ouch. That tells you how long it has been since I reconciled my credit card statement. Thankfully, my check book is only 2(!) months behind. I am grateful that we aren't on a tight budget. I suppose if we were, though, I might keep on top of my finances a little better.
I'm a glad that my brother in law is currently playing with my kids while I am lazy, sweaty, typing, and in need of a shower.
I have more cookies to make today. I made about 6 cups of frosting yesterday for the purpose of decorating "shapes" cookies, which have not been baked yet. However, I succeeded in baking a batch of chocolate chip cookies and white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. I have been using my homemade vanilla extract!
I need to run about 10 more miles today to make up for yesterday.
Did you know if feels good to be sore? Hello Yoga.
I saw a picture of myself at my brother in law's wedding last year (different BIL. Jude has 4 brothers. And 6 sisters. Yes, his mother birthed all of them. At home. She rocks.) Anyway, back to the picture. I looked heavier. It's nice to see a picture from a year ago, and know that I am 10 pounds lighter, and that it is noticeable, even if the past 3 months have seemed fruitless!
Did I mention I love snow? My husband will write me out of the will if I keep saying things like that. I was disappointed that Wal-Mart didn't have the snowflake cookie cutter I was looking for. Because, you know I need more cookies, right?
I should go back to the treadmill....
