Last night I sat with my computer and was too tired to post. I started thinking how my blog has gotten better, evolved you could say, but recently it has seemed to devolved. It has changed from a place to record my WW progress and personal thoughts to a quote and history blog. Don’t get me wrong, I like sharing little tidbits from the New York Times here and I am not going to stop. I am just going to try to get back to doing more personal posts. That means more drivel about my commute and the weather and the kids and life. Like for instance . . .

This morning, I woke up with a bad taste in my mouth, couldn’t figure what it was or where it came from, I tried to remember the last thing I put in my mouth, lets see, oh, I brushed my teeth. But this didn’t taste like toothpaste. It so distracted me I forgot to take my Oracea, I think I remember to put on my cream, but I am not sure, I remembered to bring my makeup, but not my foundation and I haven’t gotten around to putting it on yet, and looks like I won’t get to, my boss just walked in, so gotta run!
