More Random Ramblings

Man, I have a hard time blogging these days. I really think it's the "new blogger." I hate it and I just don't feel inspired these days. Our summer has been terribly busy, which is good for the most part. Tons of birthday parties, barbeques, soccer things, school things, etc. We've only managed to get to the cabin once, which stinks. And it looks like we won't get back there until Labor Day weekend. Bummer.

Here are some random things I'm into right now:

1) Izze Sparkling Clementine drink: it's not pop, but juice mixed w/sparkling water. I just finished one. Deeeeelish! And only 135 calories for the whole bottle.

2) Brain Gyms: I don't completely understand them yet, but they're easy exercises/activities you can do to get your brain to work better. I just read "Smart Moves: Why Learning is Not All in Your Head" by Carla Hannaford and it was truly fascinating. The boys' school is really into Brain Gyms and they recommended that M start working one on one with their "expert" who studies with Hannaford. The idea is to help his brain and senses work better together to make up for his hearing loss. It's great for kids with learning disabilities, special needs, and anyone, whether they have issues or not. It helps you relax, focus, and learn better. I'm going to try to do more with boys and do them on my own, especially when I'm on the computer too much at work and feeling "brain dead." Check out

3) Golden City Brewery: Golden's SECOND largest brewery. 10 points to whoever gets what the largest is first. It's a little house that has been converted into a brewery. There are tables set up outside and they serve awesome beer. They close early (7 pm) due to the fact that it's in a residential neighborhood. The beer is awesome, there's a wooden train for the kiddos to play on, the setting is totaly relaxed and so Colorado, and best of all, before closing the beer slinger comes out and sings Irish drinking songs. It rules!

Okay, that's it for now. I need to blog about books sometime. I've been reading a lot. But now I'm off....
