I probably won't blog as much about ET until I get going strong. This cold this is the pits and daily walks will be off to a slow start until I can stop making it snow tissues in my house. At least I am fever-less for 24 hours. Meanwhile I ... Read more

I noticed some sliding yesterday. It comes together in my "season of grumpiness". I failed a test. I had a bacon meltdown. I got the "as seen on TV" bacon bowls. I thought, heck, I can have turkey bacon and my eggbeaters. It'll be cute and... Read more

The good stuff: We sat on babies yesterday (family joke). I played Fisher-Price golf, pushed a tricycle full of 3 year old who hasn't got peddling down, scoped out every crocus in the yard, kissed boo-boos, made up stories about how sad the t... Read more
