Happy 2016!

2016Holy cow, y’all! The holidays kicked my butt this year!

Y’all know I got a KitchenAid stand mixer as an early gift and I used the crap out of it every week since I got it EXCEPT Christmas weekend.

I’ve made gingerbread, multiple loaves of pumpkin bread, banana bread for my middle son, pretzels most every weekend for the past four or five weekends, pie crusts, etc.

I’ve also been up to my eyeballs in soy candles and wax melts, which I gave to the girls in the office.

I’ve also been writing my butt off for /Slant.

My first article was about Star Wars Makeup.

The second was about how everyone showing up gets a trophy.

The third was about information overkill and too much sharing, which was from my blog on the same.

The fourth? About how the media cherry picks its battles. This came from another of my blog posts, but a not-so-popular one.

The fifth was about those insanely popular hover boards and my own experience with them. Mind you, I tried it again, did not break anything, but DID look fairly awkward on my dismount. (Thank you, Simone, for catching my @$$!)

The sixth was how there is TMI in the electronic age. This was based upon this blog.

And, finally? My weight loss for the new year article

Last summer I mentioned that I’d been interviewed for a webcast regarding fitness after forty. And because of that, I submit to you my horrendous interview from Forty Plus Fitness…(I was SO nervous; the whole thing sounds like the run on sentence from hell…)

All that said? My butt (which is considerably larger than it was 2 months ago) is back in the weight room and back on the dread mill…

I wish you all a happy and prosperous 2016!

    The problem I learned with a bread cooker is the loaves of bread are only really good when they are fresh. Nobody but me ate them after that. Now it’s just me, so you can figure out the problem. Lol. It does smell great when it’s cooking.
