I can't even imagine

how the ladies in the west (or south for that matter) cooked over an open flame. Here I sit in my lovely air conditioned kitchen cooking dinner. It's so stinkin hot in here. How did they cook over an open flame in the middle of 100* weather? Ugh.

On another note I'd like to give a shout out to my good friend Ang for keeping my kiddos for the day. Thanks Ang! I seem to be losing my mind alot lately. Being about to turn 40 I keep wondering about menopause. I know it's early but the symptoms started with my mom around this time. We leave for vacation in a few days and my lovely reading material will be "The Wisdom of Menopause". I have got to figure myself out. The mood swings alone are giving me and my dh whiplash. My friend recommended I go back on the pill (didn't we have surgery so we could stop taking that?) to level out my mood swings. I am seriously contemplating this. Sounds less expensive then those compounded hormones. Yikes. I'm not sure I can afford those so the pill might be the way. Hey, at least, then I'll be doubly sure I'm not going to be pregnant ever again. LOL No more kids in this house. Period! Done! The baby factory has shut down for the duration. Better go dish up that dinner I slaved over a hot stove for. More later.

EA Sports Wii Active

I am loving my new wii active game. It's keeping me busy and helping me get healthy. I have the wii fit too. But for some reason I love the EA Sports Active more. I guess it seems more adult than the wii fit. Anyway I've not lost weight on it but am doing a great job of toning up! If you're thinking about getting one, do it! It rocks. It comes with a elasticized band with handles and the game. You have tons of exercises to choose from. You can do the ones the game picks for you or customize your own workout. I'm about to use the customize for the first time tomorrow. Can't wait. I'll be back to tell you how it went tomorrow. :)
