Blog: And just where have you been, young lady?

Me: Um, err… I was out.

Blog: out? OUT!? Where exactly is OUT?

Me: Well, let me start at the beginning.

A long, long time ago, on a Sassy Saturday afternoon…

I ate a salad.

Saturday Salad

A salad filled with red leaf lettuce, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, sprouts, cucumbers and green peppers. It was a lovely salad indeed.

After lunch I packed my bags for an old fashioned, get out your dancing shoes, life before kids, girls night out and sleepover to boot.

Bags Packed

Friday Funk

I don’t know whose brilliant idea it was that I get up 5am this morning but I have been walking around feeling like a zombie all day today. I. Am. Tired. I’d love to take a nap but I think at this point I’ve crossed the line from “taking a nap” to just “going to bed”. Do I know how to have a rockin’ good time on a Friday night or what?

For lunch I reheated some lasagna. That’s it. No salad, no side of steamed veggies. Just lasagna.

Just Lasagna

If you pay close attention, you can pretty much figure out exactly when I figured out the title to any given post. Sometimes it’s at the beginning. Sometimes it’s at the end. Sometimes I pull random crap out of the air and slap it into the title. Nonetheless, you should at least be able to determine WHEN I pulled crap out of the air.

Anyway. I’m not so sure about this “vegetable” thing. I mean how good can they be for you? Really now.

Worth a Thousand Words

Today’s meals and snacks have been pretty random. I don’t know what’s up, maybe I’m getting my period or something.

I had some

veggies and hummus

late morning. Then I started looking around at all the house work to be done and feeling like I’m never going to


I said


this and I put it all on the

back burner

and let the


fall where they may. We met up with my dad at the yacht


for a little

pool time.

Maxine must have been pretty

It’s been one of those days.


What exactly does that sign mean you ask? No yelling.

Now don’t get me wrong, I try not to yell. But you might say that I’ve been known to raise my voice. Sometimes I yell more than or louder than I’d like to admit. But I promise that I DO TRY not to yell. Some days I’m more successful than others.
