Has anyone seen these amusing cartoons scattered across Facebook?
I thought it was pretty fitting this year – especially with the rollercoaster weather we’ve gotten. After the snow a few days ago, it rained all day yesterday. I am not sure I can ever recall a January where we had this much rain. Growing up, I lived further north and you would NEVER see rain until the end of March so this is a little crazy for me. But if it means the temps are warmer – I’ll take it!
I have a back-up camera in my new car. It’s probably one of the smartest and most innovative safety features a car can have. However, having not ever used one before, I was telling Ben that I really never remember to “look” at the backup camera anyway, I just turn around and back up.
So I laughed pretty hard when I ran out to hit the bank last night and actually remembered to look at my camera:
Our local Green Bay TV station did a really nice piece on Alex back in December before he went to the Games and they called up yesterday afternoon to do a follow-up piece! You can check it out on the link below:
I’ve still got to admit, it’s super weird to see your family on TV. Ben and I were waiting patiently for the news article when we spotted his name scrolling along the bottom of the screen: “Alex Guild brings home 2 medals in the Special Olympics World Winter Games”. Super, super, crazy cool.
Ben and I cooked a roast last night. When my classes are in swing we tend to pick two things for dinner and make enough to last the entire week. That way we’re not stuck cooking meals every night when I’m in a hurry to pack up and get to class.
I can’t quite figure out why, but I’ve got to admit I’m a bit of a failure when it comes to making roasts.
The last time I made one, it was really chewy and dry. So this time I tried searing the sides, adding some veggie broth, and covering with aluminum foil. I’m careful to use a meat thermometer so I know it’s not getting overcooked…
The taste is always wonderful and we made some yukon gold potatoes to go along – they were creamy and so flavorful – but my meat was dry and chewy.
Any roasters out there with tips to share? I’m about ready to throw in the roast towel!
All set for BodyPump tonight. I’m trying to get back into twice a week Pump classes. My back always feels amazing after the classes but if I only go once a week, I’m not really gaining any ground to be able to increase weights – and I definitely want to!
