It's been one of those mornings where nothing has gone right.  But, while the server was down, I did get in a walk and some healthy breakfast, so I suppose it's not all bad today.  We've been trying to be healthier at our house the last few weeks — and I feel all the better for it.

This is going to be an abbreviated post, to get you all something fresh on the page.  But I'm wondering what you have been doing for yourself lately to make your world a bit better.  Healthier food?  Yep.  Little more exercise?  Yep.  Trying to work in a bit more play time with The Peanut?  Yep.  A little more relaxation time with a good book or some great music?  Yep. 

At the moment, life is good here at my house.  How are things at yours?  Pull up a chair…
