Remember When.....

Remember when blogging was fun??? I do. It's just not anymore.

This page has been on a hiatus, and it's still taking a break...... till I can find my love of blogging again.

September 11

Image may contain: one or more people, sky, cloud, text and outdoor

I was a week in to my freshman year of college. I watched on live TV the second plane hit the tower. I waited on line to use the only pay phone in the student center to make sure my family was safe (my dad worked for NYC Transit and my mom had a class in northern NJ for work).

It still feels like yesterday.

Healthy Lifestyle


Okay, so I know I keep saying "diet this and diet that, healthy life changes and the like".... but I never followed through. This time, my husband is on board with me and we ARE doing it!!! Eating better, getting out more and working out.

My health issues are slowly creeping up to haunt me. I HAVE to change my lifestyle, or I'm gonna have a lot more problems than I already do!

I got a new FitBit (my old one got soaked on a water ride and died), so I set that all up.... as well as updated my MyFitnessPal app (which IS having issues syncing exercising and food intake with my FitBit so I am trying to figure that out). I will be using MapMyRun when I go out walking/running, too.

And I'm gonna work vitamins in to my life as well. #becausehealthy

Any other health apps you recommend?

Are We Kidding?

When the summer comes, I am rarely at the computer. So far this summer has been relaxing and crazy all at the same time. Is that even possible? LOL!!!

Been doing a lot of reading (hit my library's quota of five books last week!), a lot of watching TV and a lot of Pokemon Go. On top of getting the kids to summer camp and back. Busy bee indeed!

My parents moved in with us, until their house is ready in NC.... so they are here until the end of September. It's been........... challenging. That's a whole blog post it itself, haha!

Hope everyone's summer is going great. Catch ya on the flip side.

Summer Vacation 2017 Is Here!



I didn't have to go in to work today, and the kids have a half day of school (they are usually home by 12pm & 1pm). 

So how do I spend my first day of summer vacation? By cleaning the house for three hours this morning. I am wiped out!

Off to find some lunch..... and hopefully my motivation, lol!

Books!


This post is all about BOOKS, my friends. I've finally been on a reading kick!! Summer will do that, haha!!

I joined my library's summer reading challenge. All I have to do is read 5 books from June 1 - September 1 and log them in. Easy peazy lemon squeezy!

My library got up with the times and updated their online borrowing of digital books. It's much easier to navigate and I can borrow books through Kindle app (or Overdrive, which I have but don't prefer to use).  I'm on the wait list for a few there though.....

I borrowed my first audio book, Six of Crows, from my library. I can only listen to it on my way to work and on my way back home, aka when I am alone in the car and can hear haha! The book is just okay so far. I like the voice of the people speaking, but I feel like one should be just a narrator, one should be one character and one person another.... ya know. It's not set up that way, and sometimes I forget who is speaking lol.

I joined Book of The Month Club back in May. I joined because if you signed up at that time you got Into The Water by Paula Hawkins for free. So far, I am not impressed with the book selections. Yes, I could of just delayed my orders.... but I chose to just get the books and let the subscription run out. It's a three month subscription, so it ends after my July book arrives.
P.S. I really liked The Girl On The Train so that's why I signed up. I read 82 pages and cannot get in to it!!! I also have Since We Fell and The Sisters Chase in my possession.

I just finished I Belong To You by Lisa Renee Jones. Totally wasn't feeling it, but it was the last book in a series I started forever ago. It's in the erotica genre, but it wasn't really sexy enough..... I've read better, honestly.

I am currently reading (Confessions #2) The Private School Murders by James Patterson. I was on the fence with the first one, but I started the series so I gotta finish it up. That's how I do!

Of course, come follow me on GoodReads.... I use it pretty frequently.

One last thing.... I am always taking book recommends. What book has caught your attention lately? Share it with me. My virtual book shelf is NEVER full!

Blogging = Back Seat

Blogging has taken a MAJOR back seat lately. Ugh! I used to love blogging.... and now I feel like SUCH a chore. Bummmmmmmmmmmer!

It's the final push till summer vacation!


So blogging will most definitely be in a hiatus till after the school year is over.

Find me on Instagram & Facebook. That's where I normally hang out.
