The Healthier US Schools Challenge

Ahh yea, so I closed last time saying I’d go into the HUSSC, but never did so, didn’t I? It’s been in the news that the USDA, or rather the branch of the USDA that is the Food and Nutrition Services (aka FNS) developed new guidelines for school lunches.  The lunches are divided into calorie […]

That Still Small Voice

Last year, a dear friend of mine died of cancer.  Today would have been her birthday. In honor of her memory, I want to share a quote: “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.” ~Mary Anne Radmacher This was one […]

Clarification and Other Stuff

Rereading what I wrote last time, I meant that I laughed at the video because I could put myself in the place of the ones at the marriage ceremony that were getting attacked.  I was laughing at myself more than anyone else. I’ve been thinking about my father a lot today.  One of my cousins […]

Goals for the Year

Last year, I made a list of goals that I wanted to achieve before I turn 40.  Since I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, I kept everything general.  I seemed to somehow think that if I didn’t put pressure on myself, these goals would take care of themselves.  A year and some later, I don’t […]

The Simplest Things

“As beautiful as simplicity is, it can become a tradition that stands in the way of exploration.” ~ Laura Nyro Sometimes the simplest things can be the most meaningful.  The last couple of days, my younger kids have been sick.  Unlike their older brother, they prefer to cuddle with me when they’re sick.  He just […]

Diet and Exercise I had to laugh when I read this.  How long will it freaking take for people to realize that diet drugs don’t work???

So It Starts

I know it’s been a long time since I posted.  Mostly, I’ve been busy with the second paper route, and I’ve started MUDding. But I’ve also been trying to deal with the day-to-day stuff at work.  We are still hearing rumors.  You know, we have a job, we don’t have a job, they’re splitting up […]

The Still Small Voice

I forgot to add… the friend from eDiets that was dying of cancer… she died last Monday.  I miss her so much already, and it really hurts. I was reminded tonight of one of her favorite quotes: “Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the small, quiet voice at the end of the day […]

Ups and Downs

So obviously I haven’t been posting much lately.  We started a new paper route, a different paper route and it seems like I have less time than ever.  It’s honestly just that I’m poorly managing my time.  I’m working at getting better… starting with the extra coupons that we end up with from the new […]

Interesting Note

I’ve been doing a lot of extra writing lately.  It makes it difficult to keep up with the updates some weeks.  I’ve also been reading a weight loss blog on the NewsOK website (  It’s rather interesting to see someone else’s point of view on weight loss. I did find out today that a knitting […]
