    Went to bed early, and I forgot to log in yesterday, so here it is, to the best of my memory!!

    Breakfast was a fiber bar. Lunch was some carrot chips with hummus and a piece of baguette with dipping oil. Dinner was approximately one cup of cherries. Two cups of coffee in the morning, as well.

    Drank my eight glasses of water and took my multi-vitamin.

    Exercise-wise, I was a flop. I did do my sit-ups, but didn't do push-ups or the treadmill. I was ...

    On Saturday, we attended a performance of The 25Th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. It was a good production. Last month we saw Mama Mia which was incredible. The fact I am writing about enjoying musical theater shows how much we change over our lives. In the past, culture to me was drinking beer from a bottle while attending a tractor pull. Now, I have developed an appreciation for wine. Myself twenty years ago would call my current self a derogatory anatomical term. I really enjoy live ...

    I was talking to a girl at work and we started to talk about bills and what we do to save on those bills, she said that her electric bill was 150ish for the last 3 months, she and her husband live in a large 3 bed house so i can sort of see why it was as big as it was, but then she told me the things she does to save power, she said that she turns most things of at the wall plug but leaves her energy saving microwave and toaster on all day and leaves both tvs on standby all day (one of which is ...
