All growed up

Jeff and I took a whack at a more refined Saturday night; holiday party at the always-elegant Brinks Lounge, complete with ballgowns, tuxes, bands and general merriment. It was lovely, had a blast (discovered Orange Chocolatinis, oh my hell) and...Miss Wisconsins!

No-nap Lola

That title pretty much sums it up, we are wearysville here tonight.

Today was a(nother) vicious cycle of non-productivity. There are moments I appreciate my job, feel I do it well, and enjoy the camaraderie of my co-workers. Other moments, gah, I'm just clearly not cut out for this.

What am I cut out for? Let's see...

Fitness stuff (lately), including health, nutrition, various diet and exercise regimes.

Parenting. 5 daughters'll do that to ya.

I guess the karaoke stuff, business management in general.

Cooking. Sometimes.

Fanatic experimentation with clothes, make-up, skincare. Am still hoping for the holy grail of looks and lines that work for short midwest Filipinas. Ha, to this.

I can event plan something to within an inch of its life, then emcee and host said event. This particular trifecta is renewed; I had the confidence years ago, got fat and lost it, and have worked my way back to that confidence level. Is good.


That was a fun exercise. In fact, more on this later.

better ones

Lola just told Jeff he should "come up with better stories, Daddy."

Oh, the tragedy of being 3.

First RBR (work).

Then coolness from Linda's Fitness blog.

It's interesting to read that now, I think I wrote it a couple months ago? Anyway, I'm in the 6-8 range now, with another 5ish lbs. to lose. The real take-away though was my idiot rambling, the post got away from me and I didn't self-edit.

Whereas, with the work piece - it's tight, concise, and well-received thus far. Good writing. Who knew?

More later, it's Monday, Madison's gonna get DUMPED on today, and we're off...
