How are you making out with your ROW80 goals?



  1. OMG…Vagina Monologues…seriously?! You crack (ha) me up! Good progress on your goals. I hear ya on the exercise machine – ugh. Woot, Natalie!

  2. You are hilarious Natalie! “Death by Swimming!” I thought you gave that up. But good for you. Swimming is a great form of exercise! And I hear ya on the bow flex girl. I can’t seem to hop on my elliiptical either. But as this week is rolling along swiftly, so far so good! Keep it up! Oh, and I think you won something? See you soon! 🙂

  3. Natalie, it all looks good to me. I’m so grateful to you for all you have done for our wana group. It takes a real special person to spend her time like you have for us. Thanks.

  4. Being busy is okay, we all get a lot busy every now and then.
    And, yesterday was V-Day … nobody expected you to do more than spending some quality time with your man 😉
    At least you’ll try to catch up on the weekend. And, even if you don’t, it’s okay … TRYING is halfway there 😉

  5. I’m just surprised you got anything done after a night with Mr. Sparkles. lol. Natalie you rock. Hope you and your mom have a fantastic time tonight. ♥

  6. Enjoy the Monologues with your Mom. Be thankful you have each other!

    • Thank you Patricia. Ever so thankful to have Mom!! 🙂 And we had a wonderful time. I had no idea really what to expect and I LOVED them. Fahhhbulousness! I can’t wait to see a more professional production sometime. Really quite spectacular!!

  7. Enjoy the show, Natalie! Great job with the social media and reading. You’ll get to the word count. Have a fabulous week!

  8. id love to see the vagina monologues. let us know what you think. should be a hoot.

  9. I adored the Vagina Monologues. I saw them in L.A. with Tia Carrera and they rocked. 🙂 That, Late Night Catechism and Menopause the Musical are all Must-Sees.

    And of course we must see Sister Myotis whenever she’s in town, wearing our Christian panties.

    • It was a university production so it wasn’t professional…a lot of the girls read from the script etc but it was still amazing and wonderful!!! I would love to see a professional production sometime and of course, ALL of the above!! I am sooo jealous you get to see all those fahhhbulous shows…incredible!!

  10. I would love to see the Vagina Monologues. Unfortunately nothing like that ever comes around here. And jealous of your death by swimming. I need to rejoin the gym so I can get in the pool. That’s one form of exercise I love.

    Keep pushing through the busy schedule. You’re doing great!

  11. What a fabulous week! I hope it’s loosened you up for the writing weekend to come. 😉 May your Muse stick close by your side until you grant her her leave.

Don't be shy...tell me what you think
