So today was supposed to be a productive day of cleaning. Until my poor son was up all night with nightmares. :( It started at 11:30. We all went to bed at 5am. It was horrible. No one slept well except in my 8 mo old. So we spent the day... Read more

The results were not pretty. Last time I did them was Thanksgiving. And I have done "just this once"pretty much since. I am ashamed of myself. I know what to do. I just don't seem to be able to do it. I do well for a day or two, then I scre... Read more

Finally relaxing

Friday, December 11, 2015      2 comments

My husband is home. Not sick, not worn out, and finally taking care of the boys. I am so glad to just rest. The rule between us is whoever ISN"T sick takes the kids. Or if we both are, the less sick one gets the kids. But can wake the other... Read more

How is it, at 34 years of age, this is a surprising statement? This is hard to wrap my head around, which is REALLY silly. Chris and I decided to begin a gluten-free diet. I was worried about what my inlaws would think. Ya know what? It doe... Read more

Gluten Free and epilepsy

Tuesday, December 01, 2015      1 comments

Some of you may know that I have epilepsy. The meds only do so much to control it. So I've been doing some research on other ways to control it, and have come up with 2 ideas - the ketogenic diet, and living gluten-free. They both would be a ... Read more

Wow, I haven't written since the end of September? I knew it had been a while, but not THAT long! So I am stuck at 230. I can't seem to move from there. And I know the problem. I've let myself get sucked in by the junk at the house. Most... Read more

I am so mortified and humiliated. I was, at McDonald's in Navy Pier today. I know, not healthy, but it was fast and cheap. I went to sit at one of those tables where the damn chairs are bolted to the floor (who the hell invented those, anywa... Read more
