I started jogging again!! YEAY!!!
I discovered a new Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
Might I remind you that this blog's mantra is "Life is uncertain....eat dessert first". That being said, the motto does imply that there is something following the indulgence. Eat dessert first (but then what?). Let me assure you that it is worth it....even knowing I'll need to tack on an extra mile later.
What am I thankful for just two days before Thanksgiving? Ben & Jerry's new Oatmeal Cookie Chunk....and the strength to run it off. :-)

So...remember the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"? Ok..honestly, it wasn't one of my all time favorites - I remember it was entertaining but not a lot of the details. Except for one. I remember that the father thought Windex was a "cure all".
My dad opted for the WD-40.
Mine is duct tape. What a marvelous invention. And today, I'm proud to say that my vacuum cleaner is sucking like new. Oh don't let the sight of me driving around in my sassy little European sports car fool you. I'm wearing my fake diamond earrings, designer jeans that I bought from TJ Maxx and some drop dead gorgeous Jessica Simpson red patent leather heels that I bought on clearance for....hold on - $5.00!! The sole was coming apart just a tiny little bit (hey...they were $5.00) but thanks to the magic of duct tape - we're good to go!
The moral to this story? If it ain't broke....don't fix it...but if it is - DUCT IT!
