Paper mâché and other experiments
Thursday, September 13, 2012      8 comments

So, my partner at work thought it would be a good idea to make dinosaur teeth out of paper mâché for today's art project. Well, she blew up two balloons so we could make two teeth with four kids working on each. She got right to work covering ... Read more
Gastric bypass
Tuesday, September 11, 2012      6 comments

I had a girl tell me today that she is getting gastric bypass done in December in hopes of getting a body like mine. What?! Yes, I am quite a bit smaller than she is and am nowhere near weighing enough to be a candidate myself, but wow. I hav... Read more
Quinoa and other discoveries
Sunday, September 09, 2012      4 comments

I tried quinoa today. I made a salad with quinoa, cauliflower, cucumbers, tomatoes, and black olives. I couldn't find the Italian dressing I wanted so I used a balsamic vinaigrette. Not bad. I was aiming for something similar to the Italian ... Read more
Change is in the air, I hope

I think (hope) I finally got through to my husband. I had to point blank tell him I didn't know how we would get through this without me hating him. That seems to have shook him up a bit. Harsh, yes, but honest. I have hope now, as long as h... Read more
A sighting of the old me
Tuesday, September 04, 2012      2 comments

I had to laugh at myself today. I just pulled into the parking lot of our apartment when I had to stop to wait for a guy switching the old dumpsters for bright shiny new ones. The new ones were already in place and he was moving the old ones a... Read more

So while I was grocery shopping today I saw something I never thought I would. I was at the checkout when the lady in the line next to mine started going on about some guy that just stole her wallet. She had her purse unzipped on her shoulder,... Read more
Making a comeback
Sunday, September 02, 2012      3 comments

I am slowly getting back to me. Last week I got at least a small walk in everyday. It hasn't helped my energy level. I still have less energy than I have in a long time, but I am forcing myself to get out and move instead of sitting around. ... Read more
I smiled today
Saturday, August 25, 2012      8 comments

It may not seem like much, but I smiled today. Maybe even laughed a bit. Haven't done much of that this past week. It has been taking everything I have to just make it through the day. Anything can get me to start crying. I am an emotional ... Read more
This is not good
Friday, August 17, 2012      4 comments

Oh fudge! I just had a very interesting conversation with one of my husband's friends. He told me things I've been suspecting for quite some time. Now what do I do with this knowledge. My husband would of course just tell me what he thinks I... Read more
Should I or shouldn't I?

So I have to go to a birthday party this Saturday for my husband's niece and nephew. My MIL asked me to bring brownies. Now, do I make brownies from scratch (all I would need to buy is flour, but what would I do with the rest of it?), make bro... Read more

Figured out another thing that may be effecting how I feel. Looked at the bottle of one of my vitamins today and saw that it contained wheat. I was trying to figure out why I felt better before taking it than after. The kids love having... Read more
Excited for tomorrow

I can't believe it! It's Sunday night and I am anxious to get to work tomorrow. I decided to get a bigger aquarium for my goldfish at work and have it all ready to go. When I get there I'll fill it with water and get the filter going. Then o... Read more
Back in the Game

The baked zucchini I tried yesterday wasn't what I expected, but still good. So today I thought I'd try another recipe. This one was for zucchini chips. The recipe said it was a healthy alternative to potato chips or French fries. I disagree... Read more
Getting Better
Friday, August 10, 2012      4 comments

I may have a clue about what keeps dragging me down. Coffee or artificial sweetener. Today was a much better day and I realized I the past two days I haven't had coffee or anything else with artificial sweeteners. I hadn't been drinking a lot... Read more
The Definition of Insanity
Wednesday, August 08, 2012      5 comments

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results. Well, that is what I am doing. I eat mostly fruits and veggies, usually raw, I exercise at least six days a week, I park away from the ... Read more
