We're off to Walmart for school supplies! They just opened up a super Walmart (yesterday!) a few miles from my house, and the kids and I are excited to go.

Thing Four (who is three) really really really really REALLY wants a pet, so I promised him a beta fish. Sadly, our two Betas, Paulie and Blueberry, passed away a few years ago, but I happen to still have their bowls.

He's already decided he wants to name his fish "Sushi." Let me tell you, there's a lot of excitement in the casa today over Sushi's impending arrival! Thing One is all in a snit because she wants a fish too, but I told her to wait a few days, because today is "Thing Four's Fishy Day." She is pouting. Typical twelve-year old. ;-)

Good friend and I did two miles and weights this morning. We are following my personal trainer's structured workouts and we are both S-O-R-E!!! Next week I'm starting up the Yoga again (I haven't done it for two weeks and I miss it!) and frankly I have no idea why I'm on a health kick but maybe it's my pre-emptive strike since the Holidays are near. And I love Holiday Baking. The pumpkin cakes, pies, cookies, you name it. Holiday baking is the BEST. Marzipan, Aplets and Cotlets, Stollen, all the rich yummy foods we don't eat except the months of November and December. I know, some of you don't eat them AT ALL, but let me enjoy my moment of Food Fantasy. ;-)

We were supposed to go swimming today, but rain trumped those plans. So, I opted to GET STUFF DONE. How popular do you think I am with my kids right now?

Heh heh.

It's good to enjoy fitness fun. And that makes it easier to enjoy the foods you want.

I love the fact that there are certain foods we only eat during the fall/winter/holiday times. If we ate them all year, they wouldn't be so special, right?
