Diet-to-Go Meal Reviews: Day 5

Ok, I lied yesterday. I did decide to eat one of my meals today after all (it’s 4pm, husband is at the gym, I’ve had my blood test and I’m *starving*). Breakfast: Cranapple Muffin, Cran-Orange Cream Cheese, Pineapple (280 Calories) Ok so this was meant to be a breakfast meal, but I ate it in the…

Diet-to-Go Meal Reviews: Day 4

Today my husband and I opted to have brunch out, so I will only report on the lunch and dinner portions I ate today. Lunch: Waldorf Chicken Sandwich, with Snack Pack and V-8 (350 Calories) Overall this was a good meal. The Waldorf Chicken in the sandwich was tasty and tasted like a Waldorf Chicken…

Diet-to-Go Daily Reviews

I started last week trying out a service called Diet-to-Go. They prepare meals, freeze and ship them to your home. I thought I would start a daily blog series where I review the meals I’ve eaten that day. I currently have a 5 day/week meal plan, with breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ll summarize all the…

Looking Back at 2014

As the year comes to a close, I am one again reflecting upon this past year, and thinking ahead to the next. For me, 2014 started out with a lot of promise. I landed a couple of new clients and was working on some promising new projects at the beginning of the year.  I was…

Geek Central

I’ve decided to try my hand at something new – managing a forum and a subreddit, both tied together and called Geek Central. For years I’ve spent time on various forums, each one dedicated to a single topic, and off-topic discussions were often discouraged. I’ve wanted a central place where folks like myself, with a…

What is with people…

An Ode to the Soaker Tub

Many of you may not know of my deep and abiding love for hot baths. I grew up in an old house, with old plumbing and wiring.  In our tiny bathroom was an equally ancient bear claw tub.  The kind that had separate taps for hot and cold water, and no shower fixtures. I remember…

Why Father’s Day is Painful to me …

So recently I blogged about why I hate mother’s day. For me Father’s day is also painful, but for very different reasons. I was never really allowed to know my father. It should be common knowledge now that I was the product of a “one-night-stand.” Months later my mother discovered she was pregnant and she…

Happiness is a Front Porch

Now that the warm weather is upon us again, I’ve found that working on the front porch of our new house makes for a very pleasant way to get through my work day, especially for the more tedious parts of my work. We’ve been in this house for a year now, but we didn’t make…
