Does stress mean I should eat myself into a sugar coma or...
go to the gym to beat something up and get my aggressions out? In a perfect world, I would be kicking somethings butt right now. But, I do not live in a perfect world. I left work a full hour late because I was spending time in the office of ... Read more
GF Pumpkin cake and my family adores me...
Who knew it could be so simple? LOL! So, for those of you who don't know, my son has celiac. That means he cannot have anything with gluten in it. The common sources of gluten are wheat, barley and rye, but that is not an all-inclusive list.... Read more
Girlie shopping is HORRIBLE for little boys!
Took my kids with me today for all of my errands (yeah, that's always fun!). Library, gas, ShopKo, GF Store and WinCo. ShopKo (in case you don't have one near) is a Wal-Mart type store, without the groceries and with nicer stuff and people. T... Read more

Parent Teacher Conference - UGH!
Man...I hate these things! And I don't hate them for the reason you might think. Every time I go in to talk to my kids' teachers, they have nothing but good things to say about my kids. They are smart, dependable, responsible, well-behaved, k... Read more

Four days with no Diet Pepsi and no deaths to report!
Let me start by saying, I like Diet Pepsi. I like the caffeine, I like the taste, I like the fizz. DP is my friend! LOL! I have ignored my friend for four days and it almost killed me! The cravings were strong (still are!), but I'm going to... Read more
Big plans for tomorrow!
Okay, not really. I am taking the day off to take my son to the doctor. I'm expecting to hear that he is also allergic (or at least sensitive to) corn in addition to his gluten allergy. Already mentally sorting my recipes to determine what he... Read more
Day 2 no Diet Pepsi
One of the teams I am on is having a weekly challenge. The challenge is to avoid white potatoes, white bread, white rice, etc. for two of the seven days. No problem there. The other is to avoid alcohol and soda for four out of the seven days.... Read more
Trade you a Now-N-Later for....
something chocolate! My kids each have a friend over and they all went trick-or-treating together. They went to EVERY house in our subdivision plus the one next to us (only if the light was on, of course!). They made a HAUL!!!

Have you ever been so tired...
that you were dizzy and slightly sick to your stomach? I felt that way at around midnight last night. I'm at that age that I cannot make it through the night without getting up at least once. (Okay, so I could stay in bed, but I'd be buying n... Read more
