Back on the Wii Fit, again

OK, I'm trying it again, and at the worst time of the year, too. But I got back on the Wii on Sunday. Weighed in higher than I thought I would. So far I've missed my first two goals that I set on the Wii, so I set a more reachable goal and gave me plenty of time to do it. But the challenge is keeping it up with the holidays. But I know we can do it. (Wii can do it ... )


Thanksgiving visit

We made it up to Richmond to visit with Nanny for Thanksgiving. It was a wonderful trip, and so nice to see her doing so well. Aside from using a walker, you'd never imagine that she was 92. She still has her wits and her sense of humor, and she is always such a joy to be around.

Mom, Dad and Kelly came down from Cincinnati as well, so we got to see a good bunch of the family. I got to go in a joy ride in Uncle Steven's 911. No -- didn't drive it. But wow! That car really corners like they say.

We've got some pictures that I'll try to upload soon. We got home Saturday evening and Sunday was a pretty lazy day. Between the travel and finishing the play it was just nice to have a down day. The problem with that is now it's crunch time to get the house put back together and get the Christmas decorations up. But it will all happen in good time, as it always does.

Photo light tent

Jeni likes taking pictures of the food she cooks. She was posting it all on her food blog before she started at the theatre and her time disappeared. But we've often talked about making a photo light tent/box. This DYI looks so easy and practical. I think this is something we can actually do fairly easily, with a lot of items we already have. Now ... just to find some time.

McDonald's follow-up

So after writing to McDonald's to tell them how incredibly disappointed I was in their food, they sent me a coupon for a free Extra Value Meal. I think they missed the point.
