Cutting Cherry Tomatoes the Easy Way

An awesomeLift the top and.. Volia.  That easy. blogger friend Mommy Lives Clean wrote a great article about homemade tomato soup (which I normally don’t care for either) and was mentioning how long it took for her to cut the cherry tomatoes and I remembered somewhere a trick I learned once. I tried to describe it in a reply but it was hard… so today per her response, I’m posting these pics. I hope this is a better explanation chick.

Sunday Bloody Sunday ~ a little liquid motivation

Hmmm, do you think I’d put back all the calories I just burned on my long run with this one drink? Well, I’ll burn them off tomorrow.  Get out there and do something you wouldn’t normally today, okay?  And have fun.  Every little bit gets you closer.

Happy Sunday.

Guess what was waiting for me when I got home today?

No not him, well yes he was but that’s not what I meant.  Got a package in the mail today!  One of the best parts about your kids growing up and moving away is the extra money you find yourself left with at the end of the month.  No more “allowance”, gas money or lunch money.  No one else is eating all the food out of your fridge, laundry costs are cheaper and even utility bills drop.  It is a  whole new world for me to be able to buy things I might want for myself and not feel selfish about it.

When you are an early bird, getting up late can really throw you off.

I ditched church in favor of a long run today, I’m not proud of it but I’m usually so time crunched in the morning it is nice to be able to fool around once in a while.  Sadly I fooled around until 11 am, then went running with Max until 1 PM, and then began my day.
