Burning the Midnight Oil

in All Posts

I am up (and posting) way later than usual but… drumroll, please… the final draft of my book proposal has been sent to my agent!  Woo hoo!  It was a lot of hard work, but hopefully she’ll like it… and hopefully some big-wig publisher will like it, too!  🙂


What’s something you’ve always dreamed of accomplishing?


Here are the afternoon and evening eats:


Costco Raisin Bran Organic Cereal + Twitter:


Two juicy apricots:


A stress-induced bar of chocolate.  Eaten in rainy traffic — so good.


And dinner was cous-cous with a glob of Oikos yogurt, grilled eggplant, and broc:


Last but not least, here’s a little weiner to wish you GOODNIGHT!


Sorry, but I have the… cutest… dog… on the planet.  Seriously.  Maggie wins.

    quick question – how do you (you personally) calculate calories burned in a run? any tricks? i've googled it, but it seems a bit confusing and inexact. thanks!
