Fruit Pizza

I've started baking again. Isn't it funny how when you're feeling kind of down how all of the things you usually enjoy doing all of a sudden seem to be too much of a bother. I started with my Fruit Pizza recipe. It's one of my favorites so I figured it was a good place to start. Boy am I glad I did. Yum! I'm not sure if it's the shortbread crust, the cream cheese layer or the fresh fruit, but whatever it is I can't get enough of it. YUM YUM YUM

Another Birthday

Tomorrow I get to notch another birthday onto my belt. That will make my 55th notch. Geez, 55 years. Where did they all go? I've been thinking a lot about my present life and I can honestly say that I am not feeling overly excited about it. And the sad part is, I don't know what to do to get myself out of this rut. I need to make some changes but what and how? They are the big questions bouncing around my head 24/7. I'm open for suggestions.

Holiday Season is Officially Over

It's official, my son goes back to school tomorrow, so the holiday season is over. Today I put the last of the Christmas decorations in the attic; and boy does it feel good to put that last box up there and fold up the stairs. Tomorrow we drop my son and all of his belongings off at college. And you know what that means, Monday I can get back into a normal routine again. Sure I will miss my son. He's fun to talk to and always keeps me on my toes. But it will be nice not having to make three meals a day and cutting down on the loads laundry. Boy, am I getting lazy in my old age or what.
Yep, Monday is just a day away and I can't wait.

Won a Tassimo Coffeemaker-How Cool is that

I just found out that I won a Tassimo coffeemaker. I am so excited. I can't wait to get it and give it a spin around my coffee cup.

I won it from a blog called xiaolinmama. It's a great read so give it a try. I think you'll like it.

Happy New Year!

Made it Thru Another Holiday

Got through another holiday. Yea! I am always so excited when the Christmas season is approaching. I love all of the decorations and shopping for my family and friends. But then about a week before Christmas arrives I get so stressed out I don't enjoy it at all. Why do I do this to myself every year? Heck, it's just family and friends that I hangout with, and they don't care if everything is perfect or not. I really need to learn how to relax. Anybody have any ideas?
