It's about time I offered a new post, don't you think? How about a hodgepodge of subjects with hopefully something of interest for everybody? (Or, nothing of interest to anybody?)
Subject #1: We'll be leaving soon for ten days on Siesta Key, FL. The challenge of packing is threatening to throw me into a tizzy, but so far I'm keeping my head above water. I've got piles of clothes, clothes on hangers-just hanging out, books, an audio book and portable CD player, a carry-on bag and an open suitcase awaiting my final decisions. I'm trying hard not to be overly concerned about the clothing I pack. That's what normally stresses me out the most. You see, what I'm wearing has a lot to do with how I feel. It's a pitiful state of affairs, but true.
Subject #2: I'm looking forward to kicking back this evening to watch the Academy Awards. (Yes, I'm already slipping into a vacation mode. Enduring the days before we head for Florida won't be pleasant for me and consequently won't be a picnic for my coworkers either, the poor dears).
Subject #3: I actually cooked something today that took more than five minutes to prepare, a tuna/macaroni casserole, to be exact, with sliced green olives to boot. Obviously, gourmet cooking isn't my thing! But, listen up. Miracle Whip mixed in with the other ingredients gives the casserole a better than average flavor and crushed potato chips on top are a sinful addition. We ate half today and the other half is in the refrigerator for dinner on Tuesday or Wednesday. Of course, it'll taste better after lounging there for a day or two.
Subject #4: I stuck to my rigid exercise plan and faithfully got in four workout sessions at NorthPointe this first week of March. When I joined in November, my weight was around 123 and now it hangs between 114 and 116. Yes!! (I'm sorry, Auntie Babe. I know you don't like my intense workouts but I can't seem to lighten up. It's in my blood you know. I'm another one of those stubborn Norwegians!)
That's the latest from Shaddy's world.
