Losing Fat Loving Food, Friday May 31st

     (Wed afternoon) I'm starting this post a bit early this week, knowing which way the scale is going to move.  I am a stress eater and let me tell you this week was stress-packed.  Started off great with celebrating Hubby's birthday, then he spent 3 days in the hospital, as if that wasn't enough while he was in there our son thought he was unexpectedly shipping out with the Marines.  Subs, pastries and packs of cookies were my comfort.

The Marines are playing with our lives like a yo-yo

     I completely understand that my son's decision to join the military is his and his alone.  I understand that the phrase on his ID card "property of the United States Marine" actually refers to him and not the card.  I know it is a recruiter's job to simply find bodies to fill slots.  What I do not appreciate is this game they are playing with our lives.

We Now Return You to the Regularly Scheduled Program

     Well I guess you can't describe me as consistent. Yet if you've been visiting for a while you know there are times I just disappear ~ but I always come back.  My last post wasn't even really a me post ~ though I do love sharing what I'm reading.  Life is well life and sometimes it just gets in the way and sometimes is just rolls right over you.  These past few weeks have been a bit of a combination.  Hell these past 9 months have felt that way.

April and March's Update 2013 Book Challenge

     Here it is almost two weeks into May so I thought it would be time to post my April (and March) Book Challenge updates.  As you'll see I've been quite the book reading beaver.

Not All Flowers and Kisses

     I originally posted this for Mother's Day 2 years ago. I felt an overhwhelming need to share it again. Not sure if it is me who needs to re-read it or maybe someone else needs to know they're not alone..I debated whether or not to write this blog.  How would it be received? Does it sound like a pity party?  Are there maybe others out there with similar situations that this might help?
     Simply put Mother's Day is two sided.  It is a day when we celebrate the woman who was a mother to us and if you're blessed you are being celebrated by those you are a mother to.   What side do you fall on?  What side is more important?

Losing Fat Loving Food Friday, May 10

     So sorry I missed last week.  I was completely under the weather and didn't even make it to WW to weigh in.  These past two weeks have held a bit of self-realization moments so let's get right into it.

We've Got Worms II

     I was so busy educating you about our worms yesterday that I didn't share any of their squirmy gloriousness with you!  How Rude was that? So without further ado for your viewing enjoyment I present the first Royal Colony of Worms.

We've got Worms!

    That's right we have worms and we're proud!  How often do you hear that sentiment?  First let me lay your worries to rest neither of the puppies have worms, they're healthy as always.  As far as I know chickens don't get worms, they do eat them but they don't get sick with worms.  Guess how many worms we have?
