    It's 6:30.

    I just walked in the door.

    I put on my pyjamas, and now I am eating Smarties and checking out the new posts on here.

    Not to worry, I finished them off with some popcorn :eek:. It was one of "those" days... not terrible, but long and filled with lots of different demands from the moment I woke up.

    I'm I the only one who can't hardly function without a two-hour nap? Boy don't I feel like an odd ball...

    You are not. I regularly take naps after school, but it's not the first thing I do. :)

    If I'm remembering correctly after only one cup of coffee, MissScrimmage is in Canada. "Smarties" here are similar to M&Ms--chocolate in a candy shell, so she has that covered.

    I'd LOVE to take a nap after school... but I'm like you - it's an epic nap or no nap at all. 20 minutes won't cut it, and if I take an epic nap, I won't be able to fall asleep at bedtime. So I save my epic naps for Friday and Saturday :)

    The first thing we always do is go down to the barn to feed the animals. When we get back to the house, I take off my boots and find my slippers and my robe. I am cold natured and wear my fleece robe pretty much all the time. Now I'm comfortable.

    Oho! Compared to the Smarties on this side of the border - chalky-tasting little things in a roll - your Smarties sound much, um... smarter!

    Yes, I'm in Canada, so my Smarties are candy covered chocolate, like MrsC described. It really was a great supper!

    Tonight I did better - covered some of the food groups on the food guide!

    I run up the stairs and hit the bathroom. Then, typically, I tell the girls to feed/water the dog and close the door from the house to the garage. After that, it depends on my schedule.

    I'm not faring much better with nutrition. It is noon and so far I've eaten a biscuit and some bacon followed by gummy bears and a bowl of banana pudding. I washed it down with soda.

    Remember when I told you I could eat a cheesecake in one sitting?

    It happened. I bought one of those variety ones at the grocery store and went to town. Take that Jillian Michaels!

    Speechy... I think we've found our common bond!

    Tell me... did you end up making the Not Yo' Momma's Banana Pudding?

    Not yet, but that's because I'm making it next Friday. I'm interested in a guy and rumor has it he likes banana pudding... I am going to try and win him over with that. That is, if I don't eat the entire thing first. As I'm sure you'll be shocked to learn (hehe) I have a sweet tooth...

    I made some peanut butter and chocolate chip banana nut bread for a holiday party I attended yesterday. I received two marriage proposals, one from a friend who is engaged. :lol: We all had a good laugh.

    I walk in the door and turn off my alarm systems. AKA: My dogs. They know my car alarm setting sound and are ALWAYS at the door barking and going crazy and as soon as I open the front door and they see it's me they are content and, usually, my Kaci grabs her ball and drop it at my feet to play... so I change clothes and I throw the ball for a few minutes for her.

    Ha! This was four years ago.

    I went ahead and turned one of the spare bedrooms in my home into a gym. I've got a treadmill, weights, medicine ball, wall mounted TV, etc.

    I usually let the pup out, pet the kitten, and then get ready to workout. I either go to the gym or workout at home. Depends on the class schedule at the gym. Sometimes it's later so I'll watch some Netflix for awhile :)

    Take my dog out. Then I change into something comfy, take out my contacts, set a timer for 15 minutes and clean something in my apartment. (15 minutes a day rotating around all the rooms each day keeps it clean all week long)

    I don't know if I responded to this thread in the past but lately I've been coming home, getting the mail, letting the dog out then making a cup of coffee! If I don't have some coffee right away I'm useless for the rest of the day!!!

    I head to the gym after work.

    When I get home, I take the dogs out and then jump in the shower and then into pjs.

    Turn on the fan, cuddle with the kitten until she's decided she's had enough, change into comfy clothes and relax before starting on dinner, laundry, etc.
