In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb

Today's breakfast: Oatmeal with fresh strawberries

Is that the saying for March? I'm not sure. Living in Florida makes you a little less aware of the seasons, although the weather has been beautiful here. Hotrod and I call this our "Hawaii season" because the temperature is so nice we just open all the doors and windows and let the breezes fill the house.

Speaking of Hawaii, Hotrod and I are headed back there in about six weeks, which means I am diet panic mode. Maybe not full on, but I've gotten my butt on the elliptical pretty regularly lately and I'm slowly taking longer looks at what I'm eating. Not that I eat that bad, but everything counts. And it doesn't get any easier as the years roll past.

My To Do list is so long and so overwhelming this month, I won't share it because it would probably make you weep. I know it does me. Suffice it to say, there is little time for fun this month. Starting right after Wednesday, when we're off to Universal Studios to enjoy it while the weather is delicious and the crowds are light.

My mini-goal for the day: write 2 pages. Easy to achieve and I often do more. It's my way of tricking myself into writing. What's on your plate today?


  1. I am so very jealous that you're going to Hawaii...sigh...


  2. 1)Mailing PRO application (done)
    2)Elliptical (in a minute, I swear)
    4)Changing my plane and hotel reservations for an extra night in NY this weekend! YAY!

  3. Oh the weather sounds just wonderful. I'm so jealous. And Universal too! I so want to go there.
    On my to-do list today is laundry and more laundry and think on a new proposal. I'm in wait mode to hear about my other one.

  4. I'm supposed to be taking it easy, but my dh made it clear that this past weekend was about all the rest I was going to get. So the usual. Running kids around, baking banana bread for tomorrow's breakfast, laundry, straightening up the house and oh, yeah, that little thing called writing.

  5. Laundry and the gym. Oh the fun never stops at Chez Mayson. I also want to get some writing done. The two page thing sounds good.

    I was born in Hawaii and lived there until I was about 7. It is a magical place! Can you put me in your suitcase?

  6. Ha!

    OK-I lost 13 pounds in one week but you DO NOT want to do it my way.

    Dr oz had some people on Oprah that lost 10 pounds in one week and 25 points off their cholesterol by eating 35 pounds of raw veggies a day for ten days.

    I don't think your septic could take that one.
