Ha, when I feel like slipping off the straight and narrow I go for gluten-free too! :) In fact, I just had gluten-free flatbread from Trader Joe's. It isn't LC but it does not feel as toxic as wheat in my system.
I have been on the go since about 7:00 this morning - dog walk, fast chores, and then to a client's workplace. He was kind of sick which means he's not a lot of fun, but he started feeling better after he ate something and then we got a lot done and laughed too. He's about to build a new building next door to his rented space and had a guy there today to mow the lot so he could stake it. The guy accidentally ran over a water service stub (which was poking up and not in use) and the water shot up about 30 feet in the air! Awesome... We had to call the water company (my former toxic place of employment) to shut it off and I still had the phone number memorized. Nice... LOL
So the excitement for the rest of my Saturday?? Errands, planned meals for next week, made a grocery list, paid bills, and I'm going to bed early! Yeehaw!

i wonder why i have to log in each time now. for the past week or so, i have had to. before that i did not....hmmm???
having my usual lazy saturday. i did a bit of filing in my office, backed up a couple things on the computer and that may be about it. watched the preakness.
hopefully i can find a good movie or two to watch on tv. my dh is working tonight, driving taxi. a 3:30pm till the bars close shift. but, he's still home at 6;30pm. since he's the boss, he doesn't actually have to be out there til it gets busy. it works for the other drivers cuz they will make more money with one less driver out there, but, the business will still flow smoothly since my dh can pop out during the busy times. he's kind of sick of working nights, but, a man's got to do, what a man's got to do....right?
it's a long weekend here in canada, i work sundays, so, i hope that i will get to enjoy a quiet monday.
last night, had to be a bit of a junk food night. had smokies and gluten free hot dog buns. the gluten free breads just don't cut it though. always is a bit dry, no matter what. i've tried several now. they're not low carb of course, but, sometimes you just want to have a bit of junk. so, my first priority is wheat free, then low carb, when i am choosing to be bad.
after you haven't eaten wheat for awhile, if you have wheat, i think it hits you extra hard. which is why i choose the gluten free crap when i want to cheat. ultimately, i would like to choose a great loaf of fresh bread or buns, but, the wheat just doesn't sit well these days. so, it's a choice, dryer bread or awesome bread, but, unpleasant side effects like, heartburn, stomach cramps, diarrhea, tiredness.
it's too bad. i certainly would like to enjoy an awesome bit of fresh bread or baked goods sometimes, but, i don't think it will happen.
It's been raining here off and on today. Right this minute the sun is shining.
I went to lunch with a group from our park and had a nice time - then ended up taking a nap this afternoon, just seemed like the thing to do - it was rainy and windy and I just fell asleep.. Hope I can sleep tonight, I slept almost an hour.
Otherwise, it's been a quiet day.
EWEFLUFFY IS NOW KICK-SS

Been running most of the day and just want to quit. Tomorrow is more of the same. Bah. Next thing you know it'll be Monday morning again. Double Bah!
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
I was on my way out the door, but James had a melt down. So, we came back inside for a nap instead! Nothing like a baby to change your plans. Dh and drew are doing a yard sale this morning. I hope we can get rid of some of this junk!
