Get over it OPRAH!

Surely I can't be the only one who is extremely annoyed by Oprah's latest commercials? It seems she has acquired 10% ownership of Weight Watchers. How long has she been making public that she is insecure about her weight? Oh, I don't know maybe 40 years or so??? Well her latest ad for WW's shows her repeating that she (wait for it) eats BREAD EVERYDAY!!! Earth shattering news. And exactly why would this work for everyone? I would think that by now she would have her act together and decide what is newsworthy to her followers and what isn't. I can hear my parents and ALL wise people. "Everything in moderation!"

Everyone's Upstairs Neighbors

If you've ever lived in an apartment, you WILL relate to this! They should have added a very large, barking canine! And be doing the boot scootin' boogie which is what I have happening above me at this very moment. And since I don't know who is currently living above me, I am now going to think this couple in the vid. is them! Ughhhhhh. Faces and bodies to go with my imagination. Tricky.

Chicago is a toddlin' town!

I had a most excellent Christmas and New Year's! Especially New Year's. I went on a fun road trip for the 1st time in a very long time. Now that I have a reliable mini van, I hope to do this more often! Our destination was Chicago, Illinois. It was me, my daughter, son and Nurse Jen. I enjoyed all aspects of it. I had been there once before back in the 90's to visit the Oprah Show. (as an audience member) This was different because I was with my kids and there were no definite plans and we could just run around and do what we wanted. The most fun for me was being in a piano bar with my daughter on the first night. We happened upon it as it was just downstairs in the hotel we stayed at. It is a local hangout where people get up and sing and the piano man plays for them. There was a diverse little crowd and the people watching was the best. We stayed at the Hotel Felix which is a classy and totally "green" Hotel made entirely of sustainable, recycled materials. We were located in a good location and ran between restaurants at night. The fact that it was New Year's attracted a lot of crowds, traffic and HORNS! The horns and celebrating were going on until 3 a.m on New Year's Eve. We were all quite exhausted when we got home, but I was so happy for the time with my kids. It was such a unique experience for me to be able to travel with my young adult children and start the year off right! Glad they want to do more of it too!
