Blink and You'll Miss It

When I was a kid, the adults always talked about how time was moving so fast.  I never understood that.  It seemed like forever, waiting for a holiday or the first snow or school to let out for the summer.  The days were long and deep, and I didn't appreciate it.  I do now, but now it's rare that I have those long, lazy days.

It was another one of those manic weeks where I went in to the office early, stayed late, and did very little else.  By the time Friday rolled around I was wiped out, but it still didn't feel like a whole week was in the can already. The weekends go just as fast, leaving me shaking my head in disbelief once again come Monday.

I did my taxes a couple weeks ago, but I couldn't finalize them because I needed a stock form that wasn't ready until mid February.  When I logged back into Turbo Tax and added the info from that ONE form, something went wonky and now my taxes show half a dozen errors.  I've been through them literally a dozen times, but I can't figure out what happened, and I can't file them like this.  Sigh.  Nothing comes easy, that's for sure.  I'm seriously thinking I'll have to go back to paper and pen.

Walker and Diva went out for breakfast Saturday morning so I could sleep in.  They followed breakfast with some errands, including grocery shopping.  I'm trying to "lighten" some of our favorite treat recipes, so Diva and I experimented with a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe using yogurt instead of shortening and whole wheat flour.  They turned out okay, less sweet than regular cookies, with more of a "granola bar" type flavor.  We also made a pizza, with turkey pepperoni, part skim mozzarella, and lots of veggies.  Turkey pepperoni has been around for a long time, and it tastes really good, but I don't know of any pizza places around here that use it.  I wish they would - it's much less greasy that regular pepperoni, but honestly tastes just as good.  I don't mind making pizza homemade, but once in a while it would be nice to order it in and still get a "lighter" version.


  1. I know what you mean about time going so fast now, not so when we were kids, especially sitting in a
    We eat "light" have a knack to go too light for others taste buds!

  2. The past couple days here have gone by slow as molasses. Do not know why. Funny how one minute, you wonder where the week went, the next you think will it never end. Sounds like a little R&R would do you good. The cookies sound good. For years I have made my pies without sugar. People love them. Take care.

  3. Like your ideas for healthy food. I don't know why they put so much sugar in bought products.

  4. we've been using
    turkey pepperoni
    for a long time
    on our homemade pizzas
    I know what you mean
    about takeaway pizzas
    we usually order ground beef
    because, we don't eat pork anymore

  5. You are brave trying different things in recipes. I do once in a while and not always successful.

  6. Wow I have never had that problem with Turbo Tax but then again, I have never used the online version - only the software download version. I was going to use the online version this year, but now you've scared me!!!

  7. It's a stock sale that's messing me up. I normally get great results from Turbo Tax. I think I'm going to delete the entire entry and add it back in. Cross your fingers for me!
