Lessons learned from tax time

April 16, 2014


Nobody likes taxes, well except for accountants and CPAs, since this time of year is their bread and butter. As the eternal optimists, I always try to find the positive in every experience, no matter how good or bad the experience is. I am super organized when it comes to my finances. I know to […]

Starting over and over and over

April 2, 2014


One of my favorite quotes from yoga class is: “It’s not how many times you fall, but how many times you get back up again.” We all fall in life; that is part of being human. I try to live a healthy lifestyle, exercising and eating right. That being said, I do love my sugar. […]

Stop and think

March 26, 2014


This week’s blog post was going to be about eating cookies, or rather my lack of willpower when it comes to cookies, but something happened that I just have to get off my chest. They say patience is a virtue. Unfortunately, it is not one of my virtues. I am a hyper person who can’t […]

The tale of green sneakers

March 19, 2014


I don’t know about you, but I tend to get too wrapped up in what is wrong in my life. I try to practice gratitude on a daily basis, but sometimes it gets away from me. I admit it; I envy people who have good jobs; I envy people who can take nice vacations; I […]

A day in Nancy’s life

March 12, 2014


Not that my life is that interesting, but I thought you all might enjoying spending the day with me. 1. Wake up. Yes, you read that correctly, it’s 4:30 am. I guess you could say that I’m most definitely a morning person! 2. Eat a (healthy) breakfast. I need lots of fuel to get me […]

Another Facebook rant

March 5, 2014


I still have mixed feelings about social media. On one hand, I love it because I’ve met so many wonderful people from all over the world. On the other hand, it seems much easier for people to be annoying. Or is that I let them be annoying? Is this a chicken and egg conundrum? Enough […]

From snow to spring!

February 26, 2014


We still have lots of snow on the ground, in spite of temps in the 50′s. But there is hope. Here is a picture of one of our ‘pet’ chipmunks, who has awakened from his big winter sleep. He dug a hole in the snow to come out and gather food. In case you are […]

More snow!

February 19, 2014


Here is a picture of our backyard during the latest weekly snowstorm. . .No deep thoughts this week, just thinking about snow. Nothing else to say, but snow, snow and more snow! :) Photo is thanks to Mr. Ken, photographer extraordinaire.

Doing the opposite

February 12, 2014


So can you go from this: to this? The answer is yes! How so you may wonder? It’s all in how you workout. I love lifting heavy weights because I feel so strong. In an effort to mix things up, I am now doing a Barre rotation. What the heck is barre? Think graceful ballerina […]

How to watch the Super Bowl

February 5, 2014


So the quintessential American past time is upon us. I am not sure how I feel about the fact that Americans are most associated with sports, but I’ll let that go for now. I don’t like football. There I said it. What is the purpose of giant men (can we say 300 pounds of muscle?) […]
