Friday Night Leftovers

  • Last night I made the most amazing dinner. Easy to prepare and only one dish. You must make it now. The Chew's Baked Artichoke Chicken. I served it over rice.
  • When making dinner last night, the recipe called for wine. I pawed through the wine rack and could only find champagne. 4 bottles. So I used that instead (and used white wine vinegar where the recipe called for red wine vinegar).
  • When I popped the cork, Cam came running in to ask what the noise was. As one of my friends says  'Happiness. That sound is happiness'.
  • As the recipe only called for a 1/4 cup of wine, I was forced to make champagne cocktails to go with our dinner. Champagne cocktails make everything seem better.
  • One of my girlfriends has strep throat, and I hung out with her two days before she was diagnosed. I'm super susceptible to strep, so I panicked when I had a little sore throat Wednesday night. I actually went and got tested on Thursday. The test came back negative. And now, my throat feels fine. Thank god.
  • I've been tracking my swimming mileage - I've swum 21.49 miles this year so far! That's 37,825 yards out of the total 330,000 yards I've committed to for the year (or 200 miles). This has been a really great way to get me to go to the pool on days that I'd like to bail.
  • I've come up with a plan for Aaron's 40th birthday. I'm making him plan something fun for himself during the day, and then we are going into Boston and have a nice dinner and stay in a hotel that night. We'll wake up and get nice brunch, and then go home. I've already got people to stay with the kids overnight. Low key yet special celebration.
  • I've started my new job at work, and I think I'm going to enjoy it.
  • I usually work from home 3 days a week, so when I go into the office it hits me what a big change I'm going to have when the re-location of the teams happens in July. Most of the people I interact with are in the list of people to go. It's sad.

I run and maintain a blog about blogging and WordPress at Recently, I have launched some inspirational
blogs about getting 6 packs ( and
losing weight post pregnancy (

I am also in the process of launching a similar blog that publishes
inspiring stories of people who have had trouble getting pregnant and
people who have succeeded in conceiving. You can see it at

I was searching the internet for blogs writing about getting pregnant, and
was impressed by your journey when I read about it on your blog.

I was wondering if you would be interested in an email interview telling
your story – we would discuss topics like your background, how you felt
when you realized getting pregnant was difficult, what you did to get
pregnant, the issues you faced, how you succeeded, etc. Your story would be
really inspiring and motivating to many people in a similar situation who
want to get pregnant but are facing issues. Therefore, I urge you to
positively consider this interview request.

I would of course be happy to provide a link back to your blog or Facebook
page. Please let me know if you would want to go ahead with this email
interview, and I would send out the questions to you.

Thanks in advance...

Warm regards,
How They Got Pregnant Team.

One interеsting aspect of meth addictiοn is that, despite

does аffect people of all social, religious, ethnic and fіnancial bаckgгoundѕ.
1% of hospital visits for prescription medication problems were attributed to recreational usage. June 26 is celebrated as International Day against drug abuse and Illicit Trafficking every year. The modern hospital-based rehab centers are equipped with the latest technology and are able to carry out research so that they can devise effective and efficient programs to curb this personal tragedy and social menace. t like being quoted statistics. The drug rehab centers offer hope, enthusiasm, and a renewed interest in other people and events. s Drug Consumption: According to DEA news, 398 people have died in the first half of 2007 alone due to the consumption of cocaine. I am grateful to report I have been alcohol and drug free ever since with life saving help from a 12 Step Program.
