Thursday, I had to miss my workout because there aren’t enough hours in the day and something else more pressing took that time slot. I felt guilty about it, but, I owned up to it. Every day, after I finish my workout, I post it on my social media pages for accountability. Today, I was… Continue reading Pushing Through – a note
Two weeks ago, I made the decision to sign up as a Beachbody Coach. This was a decision I had NEVER imagined that I might take. Five years ago, I left my toxic, failing marriage. I was a full time graduate student living in my mom’s house. A friend of mine asked me to sign up with… Continue reading Out of the Coaching Closet
I love September! As you might possibly imagine, being a Nerdy Girl and all, I always loved going back to school: *cue grandpa voice* “Back in my day, we didn’t start school until the day after Labor Day.” Also, September heralds a return to cooler weather, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin spice EVERYTHING. This September is my first in… Continue reading Happy September, y’all!
This morning, ok, let’s be honest – this afternoon – I was making breakfast. I don’t have much to choose from in my larder – I need to go grocery shopping in a bad way. The only thing on the menu this morning was an Egg Sandwich. I scrounged together my last two slices of… Continue reading Always Look at the Bright Side of Life *whistle whistle*
Howdy y’all! As ever, I’m behind and have so much to catch up on – but I’ve not forgotten! I’m always asked about the school lunch. They got boring and repetitive, so I stopped posting. I also didn’t have anything nice to say about them. But, for those die hard lunch plate fans, here are… Continue reading 1 cook, 2 lunches; radically different.

There, I saw: Equestrian Arts demonstrations (sorry for the photo quality – the throng was quite great!) Tightrope walking? Silk… Continue reading Korean Folk Village
Every once in a while, we teachers are treated to a special snack or small meal by the parents. Usually by 4 or so in the afternoon, we’re pretty hungry and will descend on anything like a college frosh in the cafeteria. Today, we received some pizza from Pizza Hut. I bet you’re thinking, what’s so… Continue reading Korean Pizza!

Best kimchi so far! and then this afternoon, there was an extra steamed bun glutinous rice thing! It was filled with red bean… Continue reading Quickie: Monday Lunch (Snack Bonus!)
Friday, I got my long awaited for hand phone! A Galaxy SIII. I’m not too fond of white cars or electronics, but with this lime green case thing, it’s ok. 🙂 I’m still working on setting this baby up – such a laborious process. Many of you know that I tend to name my electronics,… Continue reading The electronic umbilical cord returns!
Some sort of bone-in chicken, cabbage kimchi, salad (apple, lettuce, cucumber & mayo dressing), steamed rice and a sprout soup (into which I accidentally dropped a piece of lettuce!)
