Exercise and not

So I shoveled snow this weekend. At home and at church. I think I can count it as exercise. I am not fooling myself. i know I need to find the time to walk and be healthy. I am glad it is getting lighter each night. But the days are creeping up for the 10k and I am determined to walk it. So I need to plan and to exercise.

My health needs are to eat well, rest, exercise and drink lots of fluids. It is unfortunate that one of my favorite foods during this time of gestation has been ramen noodles. I have managed to quell it at times, but then I had it with some organic veg the other day and it was so good. My favorite is to get them all noodly and stringy and slurp them, but that would not be good. And yet, the rice noodles in the bowls at the vietnamese restaurants do not excite me. Ramen. yum.

The other one is ice cream. I love ice cream. It is a great thing. Especially Ben and Jerry's. But I do not eat the whole pint. I eat usually a serving. Sometimes it is just a spoonful or two. I just had heath bar crunch. Now i have cherry garcia, peach cobbler, and oatmeal cookie chunk. I was looking for chunky monkey and more heath bar. i do not think I would want to make it, i just want to eat it.

Now I need to get my items into my planner. I really understand the helpfulness of having it in one place and perhaps I will try that next year. I have a weekly planner and I have to try and use it. i wish I could find things I am missing. The table is a mess and I need to work on that. I guess that will be my project once I finish this here. Actually, I just want to go back to bed. Went to bed at 10:30 and awoke at 3 at 4 and at 5. I think I need a nap.

I left for work before the sun rose. I am at work, sipping coffee and tackling the TPS reports. They are in critical mode and so I am here without the distractions of other to work... And yet I am blogging. So this is a short post. I will be back later to tell you more about what is going on.

Silly Cat

My cat loves milk products... Right now I am eating ice cream and she keeps poking her head up above the table for a taste. Usually I give her one. But today it is not for her. Coffee Toffee Heath bar crunch... cannot have it, not yours.

I do not get involved with communities online. We used to have a discussion group until one person just kept going off the deep end and making it miserable. So we stopped. Sad really. I read because it is funny, but I rarely contribute. On facebook I keep up with most of my friends and their status, but I stopped the games, because they were pointless. I was seriously logging in twice a day just to do zynga games. Now I have one that I do occasionally based on the educational aspect of it (the Everything game) but it is not an everyday thing.

The cat is now on my knee as I type this. She really wants me to go in and lay down so she can sit on me. My husband is waiting for me to come and sit down because we have not had a true conversation today.

So I will finish this up, put the rest of the ice cream back in the freezer and do as the cat wishes me to do... well, what she really wants me to do is give her some ice cream... but I think I will instead just go sit for her... and make a list of things I need to do and have for the weekend.

good toys

One of the best things I have ever purchased was a wipe off dry erase Dora the Explorer book for MM to work in. She has used it all weekend and has been enjoying the being able to wipe it off and do it again and again.

Of course, I am still trying to figure out how she got a mark all the way across her forehead. Luckily, it worked out well and it comes right off.

There are lots of good toys out there and this is one of them. I am getting to despise ones that make noise. I do not think they help in development and learning.

But then, I am a snob about her development, and I really hate some of the crap on the Disney channel and I don't want her to watch it. I cannot control what she watches at daycare or at a friend's house. But I can control what is on here at home. With another baby coming, it is important to make sure I have age appropriate item on. We like to watch sports and I get concerned more about that, as they are not geared toward family friendly commercials but the 18-39 male category and it is horrid.

New system today and there is a lot to do... off we go.
