Everyday Happenings

*In my attempt to be more purposeful I have actually seen and felt results.  Going to bed earlier, drinking lots of water, and eating wisely have made me feel much better.  I've almost finished my January book.  (my goal was to read one book a month....sounds kind of pathetic, but that's a lot for me).  I still have two days and only a few chapters left.

*If the Special K diet promises you you'll lose 6 lbs in 2 weeks, can I expect to lose 12 lbs in 4 weeks?

And, can I substitute the two healthy snacks for one can of Pringles?

**I played two of my favorite games this week.  The first was Scrabble with Billy.  We had to play quickly because we were heading out the door for an appointment; otherwise I'm sure the words would have been much more impressive. (that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.)

The other game I played is called the Time Life game.  Have you ever seen those infomercials from Time- Life selling CD's of different kinds of music?  Well, whenever I see that's on TV I make Bill stop his channel surfing and indulge me in the game.  I close my eyes and guess the song and artist when the snippet of the song comes on and he tells me if I'm right or not.  I LOVE it.  I know, I'm weird.  Then I make him promise that if he's ever on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and there is a trivia question about music,  I MUST be his Phone-A-Friend Lifeline.  I'm THAT good.

**A couple of weeks ago I entered a giveaway contest on Elizabeth Ester's blog and I WON!!  How exciting.  It was for Votre Vu lip balm and hand cream combo.  The top part of the lid flips open and holds the lip balm and a mirror; the bottom part of the lid is the hand lotion.

Isn't that fun?  It smells really good too, like almonds.  The lotion works great on my dry hands.

**I have spent the last five days obsessing about what to do in the powder room.  I am the most indecisive person I know.  At least I think I am.


  1. I probably am, actually. We could discuss it and try to decide. ;-)

    Maybe we could let Eileen decide.

  2. Good morning, Kathleen...I love that cereal...that and Kashi are my favorites. Water is my issue. I love it...I just don't drink enough of it! Think I will join you, ok?

    Love love love Scrabble here. And you are not weird at all! We like to watch old game shows here. My favorite is the $25,000 Pyramid. I always close my eyes and try to guess from the clues!

    And congrats on your contest win! That is soo neat! : )

    Ok...sorry for rambling...have a wonderful Wednesday!
