Stubborn Cats

Well, I've had a good morning so far, just gave my son a small lecture about his grades, AGAIN, but everyone was ready early & got to school at 8 am....perfect!!

I came back home to get my workout out of the way, LOL!! Punched the bag downstairs for a bit...that worked out my arms, then jumped on the treadmill for an hour-walked mostly but jogged for the last 4 minutes. My legs are still a bit sore from yesterday's workout! Then I grabbed my mat & weights! First, worked my arms out with the weights & then down to the floor for ab work.....this is where my cats get annoying!

Each and every time my cat, Andy, sees the mat, he's there! He lies on it, tries to scratch it and stretches, rolls and rubs himself all over it....I mean, really? Doesn't he have other places to do that?  I've given both him and my other cat, Mia, plenty of other toys, blankets and beds of their own. 

Well, Andy insists on beating me to the mat.  I keep getting myself situated and eventually push him out of the way....he has no choice unless he wants to get squished!  So then, you would think he'd just go, not my Andy....he then continues to attack my hair!! Yes, everytime I go up for a crunch, he is there trying to claw my pony tail.

Now I'm finished, and go to the kitchen to clean up the dishes.  Now I have both, Andy and Mia, stalking me!! Don't get me wrong, I love my cats, but I hate when they are on my kitchen  counter and table!! I do clean both constantly, but I just wish they'd stop!! I tap them off, then when I turn around, up the go again!!  Why don't they learn!?! I feel like a broken record with husband says they are stupid, but I beg to differ!  They are just stubborn!! Totally Stubborn!!!

Here are my spoiled, stubborn babies!! Ay....sleeping on my bed instead of theirs......

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
