Calgon take me away..... wait, my tub is dirty


I wish my tub looked like this!

I am feeling a lil sickly right now. Allergies are kicking my a$$ but it's not in a "sneezy & watery eye" kinda way. Instead it's in a "feel run down and having off and on stopped up nose" kinda way. When I don't feel well I tend to want to soak in a nice hot bath. It is a magic cure for lots of ailments such as allergies, headaches, tummy aches, and "my hubby is stressing me out" aches.

However, it never fails that as soon as I pull back the shower curtain, I notice that the tub is not something I want to put my bare booty on. So I commence to scrubbing it down with my Green Work shower cleaner and tub brush. Then the problem becomes that I worry how well I have rinsed my eco friendly tub cleaner out because I don't want to put my bare booty on that either.

Then 95% of the time, I just take a shower instead.

Sharing a recipe

I love bread! This is the easiest biscuit recipe and I make them several times a month. They have a slightly sweet taste to them. Yummmmmy!

Random lunch time thoughts

As I sit here eating my cranberry walnut chicken salad sandwich on Oat Nut bread (thanks Hilary!)= and waffle fry potato chips, I felt the need to blog. Why? I don't even know. Some random thoughts.

D gave Andy (the dog) some beer the other day and made him drunk. He kept us up half the night howling and whining. He was rolling around on his pillow and was all lost and confused when I let him out to pee. He also peed on my living room floor which is something he never does.

I saw Wicked the other night. It was great. I am a big Wizard of Oz fan and it was cool to see the back story of the witches.

I also saw Rent a few weeks ago. A friend of mine from High School was playing the part of Benny (Taye Diggs played him in the movie).

I am drinking water out of a mug right now. D thinks that is weird that I like to do that.

I am very proud of one of the young ladies that I counsel. I have seen her grow and change. We went to parent/teacher conferences last night and her grades and behavior have improved a lot. I am excited about cheering for her at her awards assembly when she gets honor roll.

Where did February go?!

Hey ya'll.

I need to get better about updating this thing more often. So, lets see what has been happening lately... Things are going well at my job *knock on wood*. I managed to survive layoffs and I am coming up on my one year anniversary there this month.

I am using my slow cooker to help me with making dinner a little more easily. I got a good cookbook from the library from Sandra Lee with all slow cooker recipes.

I am not doing so well with changing my eating habits. But I have started working with a personal trainer so I am slowly developing a work out routine that works for me.

I guess that's about it for now. TTFN!
