The best part about procrastination is that you are never bored, because you have all kinds of things that you should be doing. ~ Anonymous

A picture and a quote...clearly procrastination is on my mind.  I keep putting off posting on my blog.  Oh I am faithfully reading YOUR blogs but not wanting to write myself.

WHY?  (you might ask...I am sure all 30 of you are sitting on pins and needles waiting for this thought- provoking response.)

Well, I don't feel like I have much to say.  I am not witty like some of you.  I haven't had some amazing weight loss numbers to report.  I am not a veteran bandster or blogger.  What do I have to report???

1.  My kids are good.  Tonight my oldest is having his first "sleep over" with his two cousins here at my house.  My cousin has the girl cousins at her house.  Let's hope everyone is able to fall asleep and make it through the night.  Right now the boys are in "Wii heaven" playing their hearts out!!!

2.  Back on track with my least 80% back on track but I should be back in line by tomorrow.  Apparently, I gained 1.5 lbs on my pre-Christmas and Christmas eating and drinking extravaganza.  I am owning it and vowing to get back down to 161.2 in the next 8 days.  I am taking a 5 day break from CHOCOLATE.  That may not sound like much to you, but if I cut it out for a few days it stops "calling" to me and I can try and make wise chocolate choices.  I am on day 3 of my 7 day break from wine...definitely easier for me than chocolate.

3. Quick rant here:

WHY DOES MY HUSBAND INSIST on keeping ALL of the cookies that neighbors and friends bring over?????!!!!  I am sick of seeing them in tu*pperwa*re containers all over the kitchen.  He's killing me.  I have thrown out a few loads while he was a work today but he has no idea how much they are "calling" to me.  YES, I have told him. (I think I feel guilty tossing them all b/c he is Mr. Fit-n-Slim and has NEVER had to worry a day in his life about his weight.  Who really needs them though????)

Ok, done yelling.  I feel better.


  1. Whew, I thought I was the only one who could actually hear the chocolate calling my name out loud :) My husband has been keeping all the cookies too...we currently have 5 different kinds on the kitchen table. I swear I am throwing them out tonight before I go to bed...the trash man comes first thing in the morning.

    I don't ever feel like I have anything witty or meaningful to say either...but I figure if people don't wanna read about my boring life they can just skip over it :)

  2. ugh, let me try to leave this comment again. My computer is having problems today!
    Tell hubby to either take those cookies to work with him, or you're tossing them all. His choice.
    I cannot have them in the house either because I'll eat them. I have no control over the power of the cookie! Even if I freeze them, doesn't matter, I'll eat them frozen. Sad but true.

  3. Why does it seem easier for men to eat whatever they want and not get heavy??? Seriously, I got one of them too. Ugh.
    I agree, tellhim to get them out of here or they are garbage!

  4. You have permission to throw away any and all cookies from my kitchen. I threw away three quarters of a rum cake the day after Christmas...still sad but I know it's for the best.
