on your PR. Yay for feeling better.
What's up with all the food talk? I think I need to copy the entire page today to a doc.
Plady, I didn't know your dad wrote a book and put you in it? Wow! I can't even imagine how that felt as a kid. Your dad is so much the non-plussed kind. I imagine he was very non-plussed about it.
Had a really great TKD class tonight. It was challenging in a good way and the boys did great but all I could think about was how horrible my toenails look.
Must do something about them this weekend. I guess pretty soon, the hair that hasn't been shaved all winter might start to bother me, too. Spring is actually peeking through. The trees or whatever. Dang dangling preposition.
Granola: I love to use Virgin Coconut Oil. It is so good for you and gives it such a nice flavor. The brown sugar sounds scrumptious. Mine is only with honey or syrup or molasses but mentioning brown sugar is making me crave cinnamon toast with brown sugar and I almost never have cravings any more.
Speaking of no cravings, I can't recommend highly enough total elimination of white sugar in the house and, most importantly, white processed flour. I know it sounds extreme but it must work or at least something works b/c the cravings I used to always have (former bulimic raising her hand) are, for the most part, gone. I also think good fat (coconut oil or coconut butter if your vegetarian) keeps cravings away.
But maybe it is the time of the year, b/c all these recipes just sound so scrumptious.
Okay, this is a FM thread, right? So I moved forward today in TKD. And it was good. Hopefully, I'll get my weekly run in tomorrow, but chances are slim since my mom will be here so I have the opportunity to accomplish bigger project-sized... projects and can't afford to not take advantage of the help. Goal: Cutting bamboo to make a curtain/door for the outhouse and perhaps enough to make walls for outdoor shower/bath.
Eaglesvoice, sorry I've been no help. I do like to be helpful but I think the icing suggestions and giving it some time all sounded great. Hang in there.
Bec, Yay!!! Go, Bec, Go.
Mamabeth, enjoy solo parenting, movie night, and 2 buck chuck.
Nickarolaberry, ... and that scenario is exactly why I have my own private, personal, nobody else's business, credit card. That scenario has happened too many times to me and I was the one that had to suffer, not him, for not having an emergency card. Sigh. It's just non-negotiable. I didn't actually mean to get one; it was an accident and there it was. When he discovered one day I had it, we started into the usual - we argue our reasons and nobody gets it - when I realized in the middle of my argument that I actually didn't care if he agreed with me or not. It was my situation and I wasn't going to get into it again. So. That was it. I have it. I deal with it. I take care of it. He never sees it. He had the nerve recently to hint at maybe needing to use it for something this summer.
I don't think so. Sorry, I can be mean, but geez, being nice just didn't seem to work for me all the time. If last year was my year for getting to know my inner b***h, then this is the year for balancing and dealing with crises before she has to surface. So... that's my rather convoluted and long-winded story.
Zub? How are you feeling?
Tjsmom, Whoah! 100-miler!!! Wow. I hope your friend does well. Let us know how it goes. Curious minds want to know.
G'night peeps. I
