The First Day of Spring

Image
(take 2 - Windows Live Writer ate my nearly complete post Monday morning!)

....  and I think I have gained back a few pounds. I went to Lost Wages this past weekend to spend time with family. My dad offered to cook for me, so of course I asked for turkey mole. And rice, salad, corn tortillas, mexican cheese ... my tummy is rumbling as I think about it. We also ate breakfast at Denny's both mornings, the Mad Greek for lunch on Sunday, and a snack stop at Alien Jerky.

For breakfast I made the healthiest choice I could and still get full. They have a new Blueberry Slam - whole wheat pancakes with blueberries, fruit on the side (or hashbrown), turkey bacon, and eggs (with or without cheese). To be honest, I got my eggs with cheese. They taste less powdery that way.

I still haven't found my scale. Or my measuring tape. It makes it hard to determine if I have lost or gained in the last week. Pretty sure I have gained since I am dehydrated and retaining water (it still baffles me how …

Tor.com - A reading of George R.R. Martin's "Ice and Fire"

Image

We're very excited to announce that, beginning Friday March 18th, our resident Wheel of Time re-reader Leigh Butler will begin A Read of Ice and Fire! Not only that, but Leigh will be tackling the books as someone brand new to the series. We can't wait to see where her entertaining perspective of A Song of Ice and Fire brings us.

That's not all! Theresa DeLucci and Ellen B. Wright have started an anticipation thread for HBO's upcoming Game of Thrones series and will be recapping the show as it begins airing this April.


As  A Dance of Dragonsnears, we'll have even more Song of Ice and Fire surprises in store on Tor.com. Stay tuned!

In her post, Leigh asks commenters to avoid spoilers as best as possible since it's her first read through the series (I know, right????)
One possible way around this would be for commenters to white-text spoilery comments, so that they are only visible when highlighted. This is a little cumbersome, I know, but if we could all be on…

Mamavation Monday - Back on the Bandwagon

Image
Sort of. I have been completely off for about a month while we packed and moved. It was the easiest and least stressful item to let go of on my ever-growing to do list.

But I'm back. My new place is slowly coming under control, though there is still a lot of organization, downsizing, and freecycling that needs to be done. I'm thinking that by the end of the month we can have close friends over. Wouldn't that be nice?

In the meantime I've balanced high calorie pizza slices and meals from Dennys with LOTS of walking. I get between 5000 and 11000 steps per day now. Most from walking to and from the train station, walking the dogs more frequently, and climbing three stories of stairs repeatedly throughout the day.

The Hunk and I will be starting P90x soon.  We finally have enough room in the living room. Now I just need to find my scale. The last time I weighed in, I was 188lbs. You have never seen someone so happy to FINALLY be under 190lbs.

Some of the things I've …

Try Roku and help me get a free month of Netflix

I love my Roku box. I've had one for about two years now. It's the simplest way to stream Netflix (and hulu plus , Pandora, TWiT.tv, etc.) on my TV.

How we finally we got to Burbank (Part 1)

Adventures abound in my life ... also known as a comedy of errors. Take for example the following "adventure" (tortuous experience).
We all know my time management skills aren't the best, but for me I was ahead of schedule. Not so much The Hunk. According to him I was about two days behind schedule. I still thought we could pull it off.
