The drama of the teenage years
My daughter asked me a question tonight that took a little bit of deciphering. She asked "What does it mean when someone has nothing on me?" After some digging, it turns out that a boy told her that the star of the Twilight movies, Kristen som... Read more
Didn't think it was possible...
but I did it! At lunch, I made myself a sandwich and put some baked Cheetos with it. Before I ate all of the Cheetos, I was full. The odd thing...the part that I didn't think was possible...I didn't finish off the Cheetos anyway!! I actually... Read more
Got it done!
Busy Saturday for me. Work out, took the dog for shots, started laundry, finished my book, Pampered Chef party, shuttled kids to and from friends and watched my game (Boise State did some whoopin' on U of Idaho!). The best part is...I got a na... Read more
Tired of conversations...
revolving around shopping and GF eating/woes! My MIL is in town and that seems to be the only two things she wants to talk to me about. Every time she is here, she has "gotten into" some gluten somewhere and feels terrible. I feel for her, I ... Read more
Maintenance and Nutritionist
No...they're not related. They are just the things on my mind.
Yesterday I logged onto Spark People to say hi to all my friends and what did I find? A site under construction! ... Read more
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
Lowest pay grade = most action items
Man, what a fun (read NOT FUN) couple of days at work. My department is responsible for packaging silicon to make computer chips for various applications...from cell phones to servers. We work with other areas to communicate when certain packa... 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
Day 5 with no Diet Pepsi?
Heck no!! LOL! I had one for breakfast, just cos I could! LOL!
Okay, okay. I did have three cans of DP today. Before this four-day hiatus, I would have had the three cans (maybe four) PLUS a liter of DP with lunch. So I count today ... 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!!!
DH and I... Read more
