    Look what arrived at my house this afternoon!! OpenSky sent me some Get Well flowers, which instantly brightened up my day. Thank you, OpenSky! I can’t even explain how much these flowers cheered me up. I still feel pretty crappy (haha), so I haven’t left the couch much since Thursday. (My DVR is now empty.) […]

    Want to know why I eat vegetables? The short and simple answer is nutrients. Most vegetables taste pretty good to me, especially if they’re roasted, but knowing that the nutrients are good for my mind, body, and soul encourages me to eat them frequently. When I’m loading up my diet with veggies, I notice a positive […]

    Good morning! I woke up craving carbs and coffee. Don’t you think Carbs ‘N’ Coffee would make a great blog name? Imagine what you could do with it! I still love Bagels ‘N’ Gnocchi the best though. 😉 Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was a plate-o-carbs: toasted Lender’s bagel with plain cream cheese and a Pumpkin-Quinoa […]


    My (Second) Most Hated Chore

    February 10, 2011


    Yesterday afternoon, I tweeted this: I must have received at least 50 replies agreeing that unloading the dishwasher is one of the worst household chores ever. Actually, for me, cleaning the bathtub is the worst chore ever, but unloading the dishwasher is a close second. I still haven’t unloaded the dishwasher from yesterday, so now the kitchen sink […]

    A Lot of Nothing

    April 17, 2010


    Since breakfast, I’ve done a whole lot of nothing. Ok, well, that’s a total lie. I actually cleaned the entire house (including the floors), did 3 loads of laundry, and took Murphy for an hour-long walk. So, it was a productive day, but on my own time, ya know? 😉 Mid-morning, Murphy parked his little […]


    Pancake Disaster

    April 7, 2010


    Wahhh. My pumpkin oatmeal pancake completely bombed this morning. 🙁 I have no idea what happened. I’ve made a zillion oatmeal pancakes in my lifetime, but for some reason, mine totally stuck to the pan this morning. My pumpkin oatmeal pancake ended up looking like this: It’s not the worst looking breakfast ever– and it […]
