I should really start using this regularly again. I need to. Even if it's just for me...

A friend of mine randomly called me this dreary, rainy morning as I sat on my couch playing Sudoku on my phone. We each ran to the elementary school and met up for a nice run. When we split up again so we could each run back to our homes I thought I was going to be miserable, instead I was able to run almost the entire way without stopping. I just mapped the route and am satisfied with the 5.5 mile total :) I loved getting caught in a little shower on the run back too!

Who is the biggest bully in your life? One response chosen at random will win an Amazon Kindle. [contest details] (sponsored by )

I was bullied throughout elementary school but people who said they were my friends... if there had been some of the anti-bullying programs that there are today maybe I would have known what to do, but instead I internalized this and just accepted that it was the way things were. It followed me through jr high and high school to some extent where I almost let it beat me, but I survived. Being in the professional world now, as a "grown-up" I still see and sometimes experience bullying, also known as lateral violence. I have the courage to speak up now, and I owe that to my experiences... it's not right and nobody should have to go through it but nobody should get away with it either. So I guess I'd have to say that some of my co-workers are the biggest bullies in my life right now.

If you had to eat the same breakfast everyday for a year (and it would be prepared and served to you), what would you choose?

Waffles with real maple syrup and butter with a side of crispy local bacon, glass of oj or a strawberry yogurt smoothie :) any fruit really...

* 1 cup steel cut oats
* 1 cup dried cranberries
* 1 cup dried figs
* 4 cups water
* 1/2 cup half-and-half


In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients and set to low heat. Cover and let cook for 8 to 9 hours.

Stir and remove to serving bowls. This method works best if started before you go to bed. This way your oatmeal will be finished by morning.
