Cooking, Tired, Busy, Trouble


So lately I have been trying to cook new things. I got a cook book from my mom when I got married. It is a collection from the Taste of Home magazine. It is one of those books that tells the how to and gives you ideas for substitutes and measurements, just stuff like that. I really like it because it is all divided up by ingredient. So if I had chicken, all I have to do is look up chicken and POW I have multiple good recipes. Yeah!!! I have decided that I am going to be better at cooking for Mike. Man I don't know how he survived with a wife that only made the same 3 things over and over.


I am so tired of my job. I don't know what it is about doing the same thing over and over day after day. I just gets boring. It is sad when you are excited to pick out a new color of post it pad because your other one ran out.


It is amazing how training a new puppy makes your life so much busier. Now on top of all the chores, laundry, young womens activities, lessons, etc. I get to take a puppy on walks, play with her, watch her so she doesn't destroy anything. It is crazy how I feel busier. A side note, and I know that no one would believe me if I said this, but I actually like to clean my house. Probably because it is MINE.!! Yeah for your own things.


I have decided to participate in the red riding hood bike tour to help breast cancer research, etc. It is one of the tours where you can ride as miles as you want from 15 to 100. My friend Tia and I are going to shoot for the 60 something mile one. I have got to start training but the stupid snow is making me not want to go outside and ride my bike. I am way excited to participate in this though. My mom and aunt are also participating. I am excited and really scared that I am going to drop over and die on the side of the road.
