Dingos chasing the March hare - Page 26

Undies - I go commando, baby!  Since doing that, I have had no chafing issues.  This is why I dread long runs while on AF. 

 

Veggie party food - fruit and fresh veggies is what I do in a pinch.  Some cheese cubes and grapes are always a hit (you could put a cube and a grape on a toothpick, if you wanted to get fancy.  Carrots and bell peppers with some ranch dip is always good.  A cracker with some cream cheese and a little jam is another tasty finger food.

Cheese cubes are great. So are finger veggies. Popcorn.

 

So I am purging my plastics from the house, those cheapy ones that are not BPA-free. Past time.

 

DD1 has decided she wants to be a (lacto ovo) vegetarian. I want to support her in this. We do a lot of beans, etc...need some other protein ideas. Peanut butter, check. What else?

Nic - Does that mean no dairy, no eggs?  If so, I would look at quinoa for your main grain.  It is the only vegetable based complete protein, so can fit the bill of both grain and protein.  nuts, beans, tofu?

She will eat dairy and eggs. Also tuna fish (in salad form, not plain tuna). That's about it. She likes veggie burgers, etc. but straight tofu (even fried etc.) she rejects unless I hide it somehow.

 

bec did you get a package this week? i'm outing myself but i'm worried it got lost in the mail...

melw~Soaking! That's genius! I will definitely give that a try next time!

Yay, mel and poppy!!! Have an awesome race and dingo meet-up tomorrow! joy.gif

nd~I go commando, too. One reason why I stillheart.gif my skirtsports skirts so much...they have comfy unders that don't ride up and don't chafe!


No run for me again today. I was supposed to run with a friend after our student council meeting, but our meeting took longer than anticipated, so we, um...bagged the run and went out to meet our friends at the bar. bag.gif I'm not entirely sure how it worked out that I ended up out with friends at bars THREE days in a row. During front-loading! redface.gif Wasn't spring break last week? orngbiggrin.gif

I WILL get out for a run in the morning. I'm planning on heading to the group run from the local running store that I was doing quite a bit before my marathon last fall. Hopefully 10 miles, to help burn off all the food I've eaten the past three days!

From the person who has enjoyed this year's SS from the side lines.

Back on page 21!  I wore my awesome tech shirt and used my fancy schmancy water bottle at tri class this week!love.gif  I've been having to fight the kids off of the tea and the towel.  I have been very clear with them that they are not to touch my secret sprinter goodies.  They're MINE!!!  lol.gif

 

If your DD will eat dairy, eggs and tuna (any other fish?), then I would work to get those into her diet every day.  Another idea is flax seed in salads and stuff.

Evening mamas!  I've been having all sorts of weirdness with MDC today.  It kept crashing my browser and/or logging me out.  But whatevs, I'm on now.

 

Thank you JAYGEE!  Your package came yesterday and it's terrific!  I'm so looking forward to checking out the book and I had to hide the goodies from small nibblers.  And I'm wearing the socks (even though I didn't run in them). luxlove.gif

 

Okay, at some point I had all these things multi-quoted but now I'm just dizzy.gif and Ali G is acting like she's been sent to the gallows because I told her to pick up her Princess Monopoly all. on. her. own.  eyesroll.gif

Poppy--great race report!

JayGee--On the internet issue: I too spend more time on the computer than I did 15 years ago, but so much of it is stress relief. Quite frankly, I think most of us change a lot when we have kids, especially young ones, and we do what we can to cope. I used to be stressed pre-kids, but now my stress has quadrupled and my stress relief often takes the form of surfing the web while J nurses. I'd prefer to read, except that half the time J will reach back and whack the book repeatedly until I give up. I figure surfing the web is better than drinking, gambling, shopping, going postal.... wink1.gif

1jooj--ugh on the neighbor/well issue, though I'm glad to hear he's finally responding.

Mel--glad to hear there's a plan in place for your DH's asthma (and how crazy that it dates back to 2009!). It's nice to have a solution to those difficult medical issues.

DrJen--hope the anemia turns out to be from something easy and not something scary. So sorry to hear about your patients, and as far as the school situation: at my high school, everyone involved in the incident received the same punishment and even though the punishments were pretty harsh (detentions came in pairs, even for things like chewing gum), they weren't suspension + no activities + no graduation attendance kinds of things for one incident. Also, I find it really odd that some violence is tolerated and other violence isn't, especially when one deliberately provokes and the other is merely a reaction. So, antagonizing people is ok, but responding isn't? Wow. I hope you are able to work out a solution.

Mel--perhaps you can ask the student what message God might be sending if she earned a failing grade? Perhaps God is telling her that she needs to work harder, get a tutor, or otherwise put more work into it? wink1.gif Also yes, I always emphasize that they "earned" the grade. I don't "give" anything.

Here's my April Fool's story: my sister brought over her double bike trailer last weekend so I can borrow it for the girls. It's a Schwinn, so it has a little thingy that gets permanently attached to the bike and I spent a few days fighting for the 10 minutes I needed just to do that (it finally got done by pulling out the playpen, setting it up in the yard, dumping J into it, and letting her scream bloody murder while I attached the thingy to my bike. Also, because it was so hard to think straight during the screaming and R's prattling on about whatever she was doing in the sandbox, I managed to clamp down my quick-release so hard that the brakes were constantly on. It took me another 24 hours to figure out what had happened and fix it.) I wanted to go riding that day, but I think I needed to teach and/or there were 40mph gusts so the ride was tabled.

Today I decided that we were going on a bike ride today, come what may. Well, the universe took that challenge and awarded with me a very flat tire on the trailer when we were trying to leave for the library. The tire was completely flat within 3 minutes of inflating it, so I couldn't even bike to the nearby bike store and get it fixed. greensad.gif Since the morning had been spent with one child or the other crying and it was now 11:40, I gave up, threw the tire and kids into the car and we drove to the library and then stopped and got the tire fixed. After lunch we were finally able to go for a ride. I can't believe it was that hard.

The ride went ok, and the trailer wasn't quite as heavy as I'd expected. Also, we managed to get a few dresses for both girls and even a Nike running skirt for R at the consignment shop. I think J really liked having her sister in the trailer too. Now I just need to get my legs in shape because I plan to use it for a lot of our short errands this summer.

Not sure how I missed that, Bec. Sorry. I'm glad you liked the box! I have a collection of water bottles...I keep getting infatuated with new ones. It's a thing. I also have a thing with tote bags. (Not nice purses...tote bags). Sigh.

 

Flaxseed is an excellent idea. She loves smoothies so I can probably figure out a way to work some good nutrition in there.

 

Just did a fast 4 miles...dh had to go round at the hospital and I am planning 10 for tomorrow. But af.gif is here and I seem to be having a hormone headache or something, just feeling kid of draggy.

 

It's a gorgeous day here..maybe some beach time.

Have a great day Dingo Mamas! flowersforyou.gifblowkiss.gif
