Setting myself up for some public humiliation

I’ve been wanting to do this for some time… but am too afraid no one will have anything to ask me, so, I’ve put it off. But I see it making the rounds on blogs again, and I find it fascinating.

What do you want to know about me? Or about anything I’ve written on my blog.

Please ask in comments. And don’t make me have to create a bunch of fake profiles to ask questions of myself. That would just be sad.


So ask. And I promise I will answer. Unless it is none of your business.

Handy Dandy Wipes

After Abbie was born I learned quick time saving cleaners. I usually keep containers of baby wipes sprinkled throughout the house for those impending diaper catastrophes. But they are also perfect for quick cleaning around the house – wiping counters, shining faucets, buffing dirty sneakers… I’m sure you’d be hard pressed to find a spot in my home that hasn’t been cleaned by one of these handy things.

I also keep them in my car to wipe it down while waiting to pick up my daughter or at a stop light.

The winner was Lalena at Finding Freedom. She is a California Girl with a new blog (just this year). And the recipes! Oh, the recipes… strawberry bread anyone?

Too tired.

You’ll cry.

Another Muffin update – The fitness quest revisited

Remember this post? The one where I vowed before all of mankind, via the internet, to make some fitness changes so that I could get healthier and evict the muffin-top family that has taken over my waist and hips and chin and arms and thighs?

Let review and update, shall we?
