Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Wii extras, Wasabi Peas and the Olympics
It's my favorite time of the week. When I get to say Hell a lot and rant about all sorts of random stuff. Yep. It's What the Hell Wednesday. What the Hell have you been up to this past week? If you would like to rant about it and have a couple of What the Hell moments to share (and who doesn't) head over to Elle and Stacy's place and link up. Way fun.
I added 2.5 pound ankle weights to my Wii Fit workouts. I even did a weigh in with them on (by accident) and was pissed I had gained 1.8 pounds. What the Hell? I thought. Then I danced around realizing I had them on and had actually lost 3.2 pounds. Pretty sure I found it though. Those pounds never stay lost for long.
Then...because I'm determined to lose weight without giving up chocolate and chips, I decided to add an extra fat burner. I added the wii balance board riser and boy, have I mentioned how un-coordinated I am? I'm not sure why I can't get the rhythm right on the side to side, and I'm all the sudden really good at the purple steps. Practice makes Perfect. Perfect is my goal...with riser...and weights.
Boog had a Valentine's Snack-nic. What the Hell? He's 6. I also need to get a patent on that word fast. It's seems to be catching on. Remember you read it here first, kay?
I'm addicted to wasabi peas? Have I mentioned that yet. A guy brought them into work and I've been eating them everyday since. What the Hell? They are crunchy and spicy and I'll never be able to get enough. They surprisingly go well with wine too. Just saying.
Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics was a bust at our house. I was ready and excited. The kids were not as enthused. Hubster wanted to see it and kept getting distracted. I kept rewinding in hopes he's soon show up. At 8:30 (an hour after the start) he told me to go ahead and watch. He was with the kids in the den getting them settled but could tell my frustration watching the poor guy crash over and over. I'd start it when he came into the room and then he would walk back out. I started watching, hit record and fell asleep somewhere around 10:30. I went back to watch it the next day only to find that the delay in the actual torch lighting made the "show" go past scheduled time and I missed it. What the Hell? Trying to find it online is like giving away your first born. I'll assume it was cool.
Okay. I'll leave you with time to read more What the Hell post. Head over the Blue Monkey Butt and see who else is playing.
