I'm surprised I still remember how to use Blogger

Sometimes when TheOldMan gets medical journals in the mail, I like to (try to) read them. He is a Clinical Laboratory Scientist. I was reading something about pharmacogenetics and realized after I couldn't get past the first paragraph, that I am happy that I'm not the smartest person in the house.
I grew up smart but didn't apply myself. I'm glad my kids have a parent who is smart and works hard to learn more and be his best.
I like it when he talks about lab stuff. I like to follow along for as long as possible.

Snickerdoodle has a good throwing arm. If he turns out to be good at sports, awesome. But I'm very glad he has a dad who is good at science. Hopefully, he'll be smart and good at sports. He'll be unstoppable ;) Plus he's cute.

That's all I have for now. Since I haven't blogged for awhile....Here you go

A blog about my shower curtain

Yes, about my shower curtain. Ridiculous excuse for a blog topic? Yes but it's my blog so I shall blog what I want to blog!
OK, here's the deal. I really like my shower curtain. It is clear at the top and doesn't have hooks.
It looks like this:


You can see through the top but still have privacy. That's nice for several reasons.
  1. Today I took a shower in the afternoon and because it was sunny outside, there was enough light coming through my shower curtain that I didn't have to turn on the lights. Yay for saving energy!
  2. You can see if there is someone hiding in the shower. That's just good to know when you're home alone.
  3. When you take a shower, you can know if someone is coming into the bathroom. No Psycho-like surprise attacks. It's just good common sense to have a see through shower curtain.
PLUS this shower curtain doesn't have hooks! How awesome is that?! I'm pretty sure I got our shower curtain at Walmart (boo) but I didn't see it at walmart.com so if you click on the picture, it should link you to bedbathstore.com. You could get it there.
So that is my blog about my shower curtain. I like mine and I'm not ashamed about that.

Being this awesome can be a burden



"The Gang" is all together this weekend so since the group includes some big guys and 3 preggos, I decided to make an indulgent dessert.
I borrowed my new friend Hilary's Pampered Chef Trifle Bowl (thanks Hil!) and concocted an easy but fancy dish.
I used a boxed devil's food cake mix and threw in some chocolate chips. To cut down on the fat and sugar (haha), I used ff/sf vanilla pudding and light whipped cream. So cake on the bottom layer then pudding then whipped cream. Then in the food processor I chopped up some Thin Mints that were in the freezer and then sprinkled that on top of the whipped cream. And then repeated the layers.
I only used 2/3rds of the cake because that was all the layers I could fit in there. I wish it was a little prettier but who cares what it looks like when it tastes that good.
So right now it is chilling in the fridge and in a few hours, hopefully, we will all be enjoying it.
We don't get together that often so we are celebrating and eating well.

Motivation makes me hungry

I'm counting points again.
I don't want to but I need to.
I've gained about 8 or 9lbs since November. I'm 6 over goal weight.
It was fun eating like Fat-Emily for the last few months but I have a pair of skinny jeans that don't fit and that bums me out.
I get 20 pts a day. I've been good so far today. Still have 9 left.
I stuck to my plan even at Cracker Barrel.
My problem hasn't been lack of self control. It's been an extreme case of not giving a crap.
For the last few months, I've eaten what I want, when I want it. Even when I knew I was doing it for the wrong reasons.
So I'm back on the program.
I also bought Dancing with the Stars Cardio Dance DVD....it kicked my butt.
I only made it through 10 minutes the first time. I need to do aerobic exercises more often. I have the lungs of a 65 year old smoker. Well probably not, it just feels like it. I was fat all through out puberty and my 20s, so my lungs are weak. very weak. It's very annoying.
So now it's time to fix that.

Eating is more fun.

Welch's Mixed Fruit


The Mixed Fruit snacks are awesome. I eat about 2-3 a day. I'm getting a lot of Vitamin C and fruit so it's not all bad. But I am seriously addicted. They're great.

Eating on Sunday part 2

I ate some more fruit gummies (I love them!)
and Weight Watchers Lemon Cake (just 1pt I think)
I need to eat less snacks. I've had such a sweet tooth lately.
TheOldMan is making grilled chicken and mashed potatoes. We're also gonna have some of those steamed veggies that you just have to throw in the microwave :)
Green beans and corn on the cob.
I'm gonna try and not eat anything else. I'm also going to try and NOT drink anymore soda today. I've had too much already.
I don't want to update this so I'm going to try and not eat anything else. We shall see.

Horizons

I've decided to expand mine. I'm trying to improve myself. I'm doing something just for me.
It's all very un-Emily.
I joined a Flickr group that gives out "missions" about once a week where you have to take a picture with a certain theme within 24 hours. I've also decided to take a picture everyday for 365 days. Hopefully, through these I can improve my skills in photography. I love taking pictures.

I don't have anything to blog about so let's see how much I can ramble on about nothing

I miss Lindsay. She's in Uganda. I know God is using her and blessing her journey but I still miss her a lot.
I'm excited LOST comes back in 2 1/2 weeks.
We put away Christmas decorations but forgot the outside lights and wreath.
I'm excited that my new perfume is coming in the mail tomorrow. I'm gonna smell pretty.
I get to see my family and celebrate Christmas again this weekend.
How I Met Your Mother is showing reruns on Lifetime now on Monday nights. That means 3 episodes every Monday! That is really awesome. We didn't watch the first season so it's like watching new episodes! That show is great.
I'm tired of the cold.
I haven't been to a weight watcher meeting since before Thanksgiving. I babysit every Tuesday so I can't go and it bums me out and I need to eat better.
I'm going to have pulmonary function tests on Wednesday so I can't have caffeine tomorrow and that bums me out.
I need to put a sweater on but there is a child sleeping in my room so I will stay in here and complain about the cold on my blog.
If I had $5000, I would have much nicer furniture.
I am excited for everyone to open their Christmas presents. I did a good job buying this year.
I haven't bought anything for Hermano or BlueEyes yet.
I haven't had spaghetti in a long time. That's weird because I love spaghetti. Maybe we'll have that for dinner.
Probably not though. TheOldMan works his second job tonight and if I fed Snickerdoodle spaghetti alone, then I'd be the one stuck cleaning it up.
I can't think of anything else to ramble on about so I guess this is the end.
