I have a confession.

See that?  It’s a Sims 3 household.  It was only a matter of time before it happened.  First it starts with needing to update your iPod using iTunes, and then you wind up checking to see if one of your video games will boot…next thing you know, it’s a week later, you’ve figured out the current patch’s bugs, and you’re somewhere into the second generation of your little Sim lives, waiting for the first generation to shuffle off their particular digital (mortal?) coil.

To say I can be easily distracted by shiny things like The Sims is an understatement.  However, it’s impacted my blogging and podcasting schedule.  Something to work on!

Knitting is ticking along.  With the increased gaming, the knitting productivity has slowed, but there is still some progress.  More on that tomorrow for WIP Wednesday.

Today, however, is Tuesday.  Hm.  Wonder if there’s a “Trimmer Tuesday” or some such meme?  At any rate, we’re trying to get the fooding back under control, and it’s not being easy this time around.  There are way too many pitfalls.  Just to head off any questions about activity, I’ll just say that I’m concentrating focus mainly on diet because as the quality of the food I take in improves, the more I tend to move around and get exercise…so that’s not really an issue – at least, not at this time.  After Yule, our diet has been rather erratic, to say the least.  We’ll eat well for a period of days, and then sabotage everything with a junk food binge on the weekend.  Seems that once the daily rituals of the work week are suspended, so are our better intentions.  Definitely something to recognize and work on, because the flip side to that good food = activity rule I was talking about?  Bad food (or rather, poor choices = body aches, pains, and numerous other things you don’t want to hear about.

Today’s dinner choice was a little different for us.  We went somewhat vegetarian in choice and had a big salad.  Come to think of it, it was a downright vegan meal – not something I would normally choose.  Lovely green lettuce with red cherry tomatoes and zesty radishes.

However…that’s not the picture you’re going to get.  That, folks, is one of Robin’s wonderfully improvised steak stir-fries.  Yes, those are light saber chopsticks (Yoda!), and yes, I was allowed to read at the table.

It doesn’t get much better than that.

(ps: I definitely recommend the book.  I’ve gotten through the first 3 stories and I suggest taking your time to really digest what they say about the member of the Endless that they’re focusing on)
