Kettlebells or kettle corn?

The desire to cook and bake vs. the desire to be healthy…
Can there be a happy union of these two nemeses in 2013?
Party dress or pajamas?
I think I need to start looking at my closet in terms of what is practical for me. How do I spend my time in clothes? I have calculated the time I am not nude in an average week:
45 hours in my work wardrobe.
56 hours in bed.
32 hours in weekend clothes…which could include wearing my “in bed” clothes
28 hours in relaxation clothes..which could include wearing my “in bed” clothes
Then, there is the very occasional need for wedding/party attire. But what do I find that I am lacking? Hanging out clothes ( which my husband would refer to as a half step up from pajamas…but then, he wouldn't mind seeing me in a dress and heels while we played Scrabble or did laundry)
And pajamas. I want to make pajamas! Nightgowns! Lounging robes!
I happen to have two fabrics...a silky and a knit...let's see what happens when I make the same pajamas with these two different fabrics!
Social or solitary?About once a month, JR and I talk about how we need to plan some parties. I have a million ideas in my mind, but I never seem to find the time or inclination to just settle down and make it happen. We have so many friends that we just don’t see. We’re all busy. But I started thinking that instead of just spending every weekend alone, with family and with our best friends (which, don’t get me wrong, is pretty cool) I’d love to plan about 4 occasions, send out about 20 invitations and then tell our potential guests to select one party or all of them and come on over for some socializing. It would be an interesting and different mix each time! Let’s see…we could have a euchre night, a spring brunch for girls only, summer cocktails and snacks on the patio, Halloween themed pot luck, a holiday ornament swap and wine tasting...the possibilities are endless! Would you like to be on included the guest list?
So, those are pretty simple goals, right? Let's just see what happens. I'll keep you posted....
