Well, not really the British, but our Princess is coming from the UK on Tuesday. All the volcano activity had us on pins and needles, but it looks like air travel is getting back to normal, so I will be at PDX Tuesday night with bells on. Well, maybe not bells...that would be weird, but this is Portland and there are lots of bumper stickers that extol our pride in "Keep Portland Weird" I think I really need to go to bed. The super secret projects will be revealed soon. BOLO for maternity sewing ahead!

Just a quick update. This blog is a diary of sorts (really??? couldn't tell...sorry, I love a little sarcasm in the morning!) Important sewing project finished yesterday...more later. Working the P90X fitness program...did plyometrics and stretching last night! Totally kicked my butt, however I feel stronger today and am excited to be doing something physical and healthy with my Hunny. I didn't feel sore today like last time I worked out. Probably the soak in the hot tub before bed had something to do with that! Have another super secret sewing project to start tomorrow...sorry to be so cryptic, but all will be revealed soon...with pictures! 11 days til the marathon...whoo-hoo. Just praying that the Iceland volcano settles down enough for Sara to make it out of the UK...tomorrow brings a little work, a little doctor visit, a little play...life is fun at warp speed!

Seems like every minute is spoken for these days! I lacked motivation yesterday on my day off, but once I forced myself to get moving, I got alot accomplished (even a little sewing). Went in early to the firehouse and worked out with the crew. That was fun (and good for me). I broke a tooth in the middle of the night. Don't know how that happens, but it woke me up. No pain, thank goodness! I have a double shift today and just a single tomorrow. Hopefully the dentist can get me in this week. Hmmm...life...always something!!!

Well, actually it's more walking fast with a little running thrown in when a rocking song comes on the ipod. I have been concentrating on my half marathon training this week, plus trying to keep up with my housekeeping chores, so there hasn't been a lot of creating going on. I did a really long walk (approximately 10 miles...my Nike+ sensor was is the pair of shoes I didn't wear that day. In my defense, I was in a hurry to get out there and didn't think to check which pair of Nike+ shoes had the dealy-bob in it. I will check next time I go on that route to get an accurate accounting of my mileage. In other health related news, we are modifying our diet because the doctor encouraged Tom to lose 20 pounds. I'm sure he would give me the same encouragement if I went...and the colonoscopy speech! Ugh!!! Why do I find the most decadent recipes when we're supposed to be watching our weight? Asparagus, wrapped in bacon with a brown sugar glaze? Mmmm...I'm making it!!! I have several projects in the works, but no pictures to share. I really need to straighten up the guest room, which becomes my overflow studio if I let it. Need to spiff it up for the princess who is coming home soon...Yay!!!! Maybe I'll get on that this afternoon...that and search for some yummy low calorie recipes!

Shameless rip off of a title...I apologize. I have been radio silent, but I have been busy. Back from our little mini vacay, I worked mad shifts, had laser eye surgery and managed to do quite a bit of sewing on yet to be disclosed items...okay, everyone hates a vague blogger...it's baby items. I do have a shirt started on Valentine and will resume work on it soon, but my sewing time has been in bits and pieces and baby items fit that bill. I have been watching Food Network too. Alot. I have been inspired to cook some new things. Last night I made a new recipe called grilled chicken with sesame noodles that was fantabulous!!! I ate way too much and had to drink a gallon of water to counteract all the sodium in the sauce, but it was yummy! Definitely going in the rotation. Next up is Philly cheesesteak sandwiches that I'm making for the firehouse tomorrow. Sure to be another hit! Anything with cheese and steak in it has to be good...and carmelized onions...yum! At this rate, I will need to sew a whole new wardrobe for my new (larger) body! Tomorrow I plan to do 10 miles, so that should balance out the intake. Only the scale knows...
