Tanning: My Real Concerns

When it comes to tanning beds, I have only one real concern. The first tan of the season. Yeah, I’m not real concerned with the health issues because, let’s be honest, what CAN’T be bad for you these days?

I’m all about natural sun. But I’m not about showing my ashy white “coming out of hibernation” skin tone my first time in a swimsuit. I like to be prepared with at least a slight golden tone. And I’m not just thinking of me, I’m also thinking of you. You don’t want to see these legs right out of winter.

Facebook – What You Can Learn

Facebook is the largest social network. I mean, is there really any others out there? And we all wonder what we did before it. Some of us update our status, some people pretend not to look at Facebook and won’t admit that they really do, all the time... stalking. And some us are actually using it as a tool to keep up to date with folks we wouldn’t otherwise have time to chat with on the phone as often as we’d like.

We will all admit we learn things about others. Sometimes, it's things we didn’t really want to know.

Kids Say (And Do) The Darnedest Things

As a mom, you love your kids unconditionally, but they sure can embarrass you sometimes! Just the other day, standing in line at the checkout at HEB, my Bowen, who is 2, pointed to a bearded man standing behind us and YELLED, “That man looks like a billy goat! That billy goat STINKS!”

Talk about wanting to run away! I was so embarrassed and couldn’t even turn and walk in the other direction because I had all my groceries laid out on the belt and was ready to check out. To add salt to the mortified wound, Bowen then asked to have a chocolate bunny at the checkout. I told him no and that too much candy would put holes in his teeth. He pointed to the checker and said, rather loudly, “She has holes in her teeth!” I couldn’t get out of there fast enough! To the man with the beard and the checker, I am so sorry that my 2 year old has not learned better manners!

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner on the Cheap in Victoria

One day, three meals, and a 20 dollar bill
Breakfast:
I live 10 minutes from work. This typically means that on any given day I roll out of bed about 20 minutes before it’s time to be at work. My breakfast generally consists of a cup of coffee with a side of coffee. I’m just not a breakfast/morning person.

However, for the sake of journalism and for you, dear reader, I made the sacrifice of getting up a whole 15 minutes early.

To paraphrase that beer swilling, most interesting man guy, I don’t always eat breakfast but when I do, it’s a breakfast taco. With the goal of cheap *and* tasty in mind, I jumped in my car and headed for Taqueria El Rodeo.

A Bet, a BBQ, a Bunch of Bald Heads

A bet is a bet, right?

The Nasty Cookers BBQ Team entered a BBQ cook off at Colet Inn this past weekend. The cook off benefited LJ Chumchal, who is battling Hodgkins Lymphoma. The bet was that if the Nasty Cookers won, they would allow LJ to shave their heads.

Housework, The Never Ending Battle

My least favorite aspect of being a mom and wife is HOUSEWORK. Yuck! I don’t know if you’ve ever heard the quote, ‘cleaning house while you still have children is like shoveling the drive while it’s still snowing’ but that is exactly how it is!

If I clean while the kids are at school, it’s much easier to get it done, but as soon as the walk in the door, it looks like an explosion of backpacks, shoes and homework. If I clean while they are here, it’s even more pointless. As soon as I have one spot clean, they swarm to it like angry bees. Needless to say my house is never clean for very long.
Luckily my kids are getting old enough to help out. My daughter has dish washing duty (loading the dishwasher). Is it wrong that I assigned her one of my least favorite things to do? My 5 year old clears the table and wipes it down after dinner and they all help out picking up their toys.

The Week in Geek: My Kindle Dilemma

Every time I bring up the subject of wanting a Kindle, someone inevitably mentions, “There’s an app for that.” They’re right, of course. It’s a small download, minimal fuss to get it set up the way I want it on my Android phone, and I could be off and reading.

Therein lies the problem.
