the workout, month two

March 29, 2010

See that tagline up top?  ”The Ambitious Procrastinator”?  Ever wondered what that’s really all about? Here’s your answer. Last month, I posted a day by day account of my attempts at getting in shape.  How?  Why?  Well, I kept a daily log (for the most part) that was rather lengthy- and I pared that down [...]

why rush?

March 26, 2010

Ever notice when you hear a word that is new to you and suddenly it seems everyone you talk to is way smarter because they’re constantly using that word?  Or when you see a car make/model that you haven’t noticed before and then it’s the one that is in all the accidents you see along the [...]

cringe-worthy

March 13, 2010

Cringe verb 1 she cringed as he bellowed in her ear: cower, shrink, recoil, shy away,flinch, blench, draw back; shake, tremble, quiver, quail, quake. 2 it makes me cringe when I think of it: wince, shudder, squirm, feel embarrassed, feel mortified. The second entry is our focus today.  None of those other words seem to properly convey what cringe does so succinctly.  (Mortification is a good one as well, but it doesn’t have the same physical [...]

spoon donations welcome

March 12, 2010

We have a very limited amount of spoons in the house.  Why do I not go out and purchase additional spoons?  This one’s not chalked up to being lazy… it’s more that when I’m at Target I’m in a happy place, not thinking about bad things at home like my Least Favorite Household Chore List. [...]
