Hello Out There! aka "Honey, I'm Home!"

Yes, I have returned to the blogosphere. The quick fix of the computer was done quite painlessly and all is working just swell now. I actually had the computer back on Sunday, but I was busy entertaining a 5 yr. old, so posting wasn't really an option. Yesterday, was jam-packed with one "adventure" after another, so this is my first opportunity for a quick post.

As promised, the results of The Great Cardio Challenge Week 2. I have jumped into the lead, due in great part to the fact that the MediaCom repair guy ticked me off and I worked harder than planned. :) Hate it when that happens. Anyway, I am now cumulatively +2.982 points ahead of The Perfect Child after the second week. This week, we are neck and neck on time.

Granddaughter and I made "Kick the Can Ice Cream" this morning. She kinda pooped out midway through the process, but it was fun while it lasted. We are going golfing later today, so I'll be out and about walking and playing. We did have a lovely walk to the park yesterday, so the PC let me count the pedometer miles for my cardio. What a sweet child, I have. Bless her heart, cuz I don't know if I'll be able to get on the "dreadmill" or bike until after tomorrow.

Plenty on "our" agenda for today and tomorrow. Amazing what all interests a 5 yr. old. She will keep me moving, so that's a very good thing. No resting on my "laurels" (aka my big fat arse) while she's visiting. It's always fun to be out and about with her, so we have lots of little trips planned. She also loves to help cook, so we're planning out dining experiences as well. Tonight is "Build your own taco" night. I have a sneaking suspicion that this menu choice was a way to get extra avocados onto the shopping list. Last night she helped make angel hair pasta with pesto and shrimp. Yes, she loves pesto!!! I behaved, and went easy on the pasta, but enjoyed the shrimp.

Off to start the day. Good to be back. I'll have to wait to catch up with everyone's blog. No time to read right now.


  1. Welcome back!! But I think your Mediacom guy broke blogger or something because it looks like blog lists are not getting updated when someone makes a new post...I just started missing you real bad and checked your blog to see if you were back!! :-)

  2. Sounds like we both have been having a great time with grand kids. Mine are boys, but full of energy. Love ever minute with them. Good luck this week staying ahead of the PC.

  3. I shall heretofore refer to my butt as my laurels in future, lol!

    Glad to have you back!

  4. Welcome back! So glad to hear you are ahead in the race!

  5. Awesome job on the challenge. Keep making healthy choices!

  6. Glad to have you back and on track.
