Where to start?


I am still a knitter, cook, student and now a runner. I now have 2 dogs who are the focus of a lot of my spare time. In May I will run my first half marathon. The next May I’ll complete my business degree. Running, working out and trying to have a healthier diet (and still enjoying my beer) have become more of a focus. So, back to trying to blog. Let’s see how that goes.


St. Patrick’s Weekend


This is a big thing in Buffalo.  Huge even.  The corned beef has been flying out of Weggie’s and the beer is freely flowing.  Parade is tomorrow and a Keg’s and Eggs party at a few friends houses. Should prove to be interesting.

I had my annual review at work this week and it was bad.  My boss and I have never had a very great relationship and it appears to have gotten much worse over the last year.  Now that I have had a chance to calm down, I have to admit he is right on a lot of things and I shouldn’t be angry about the things he was wrong about.

I do need to become more organized.  I have let a lot of things slide in the last year or so and this one is HUGE.  It is a fact that I function better with routines.  I need a sort of ritual to keep me in place.  I need to start with some sort of daily schedule and try it out, tweaking it in places were it rubs the wrong way.  I think I will start from home tomorrow on my day off.  Spring is coming and it feels like I should take a step towards rebirth.

This does not mean that I’ll be frittering my time away in the yarn room organizing cleaning playing.

Maybe the luck of the Irish will wear off on me!

Springtime in February


48 degrees today.  The snow is gone and I’m twitching.  The pneumonia is lingering, I can work but I am exhausted in a matter of hours.  So off to the office I go.

Facebook is freaking me out.  There, I said it.  I don’t know about you, but I never felt well known or liked in High School.  Now people keep popping up and “friend-ing” me.   I always accept because I don’t want to be snobbish or aloof, but another part says who are these people and where have they been for the last x years.  Whatever.  I’m grumpy today.

Hello February, when did you show up?


Hey folks!  Wow, I haven’t been here in a while…so long, in fact, I forgot my password.  Yikes!  Lots of neato stuff has been going on, but I completely forgot to blog.  Well, that and I haven’t got a camera at the moment.  My Cannon Elph, circa 2003 is having battery issues.  A replacement battery for this dinosaur of a camera (2 mega pixels!) is about $50.  A new camera is around $150.  The point is moot anyway because I don’t have a spare $50 these days.  So You, my dear reader, will have to deal with pictureless posts for sideways pictures from the iPhone.

Superbowl Sunday.  An excuse to pig out and lay on the couch in a stupor.  Mr. Bunny and I are staying home tonight.  We have cooked up a feast, you would think there were people coming over.  Sloppy Joe Sliders courtsey of Martha, Potato Skins from Simply Recipes and Cream Cheese Taco Dip from my wee little brain. Yummy.

Haven’t gotten around to joing the gym yet, but to have my 22 weeks to train for the Musselman I need to start training next Monday.  I told my family about my goal of the Sprint Tri before my 30th birthday and they laughed.  I’ll do it, if for nothing else than the satisfaction of telling Mumsey dear she had better stop crushing my dreams.

Hello 2009, nice to meet you.


New Year’s day has been a quiet one around here.  I’m grateful for that.  We had a peaceful night in, slept in this morning, watched the Rose Bowl Parade, shopped for groceries, napped, cooked, lazed about.

Tomorrow I will have my upper attachments removed from my Invisalign’s and will only be working on straightening my lower teeth.  I also need to go on a massive cleaning spree as I was too busy to get to it before now.  The house is a wreck.
