        • It's ready, Tomi. I've posted our story, a few recipes, Brady's 1st quarter Kindergarten evaluation, and his behavior color chart. I think this is going to be an interesting project.

          • Found a guy at work who is Paleo. I was shocked! We were talking about Greatest Grains and how it's a vegan store and that I have to have meat and they don't sell meat (not that I've noticed anyway) so I don't shop there. He chimed in with "I'm Paleo". I was floored! I love finding people of our kind!! He offered to share recipes if I was interested. Think I might add him on Facebook.

            Been working on the blog. I've linked a few articles, a few websites, mentioned a few books, reviewed on article (well, kind of - gave my opinion on the subject matter and linked the article), posted a few recipes, etc. Hopefully it'll take off before too long. Already have one "member" - our dear friend Nameless Wonder. If you go to the blog, do me a favor and click on an ad or two... I try to make it a point to do this for both Nameless and Naiadknight. It doesn't generate much money, but some is better than none.

            Food yesterday was swell. I did very well. Same with today. Still trying to decide what I want to make for dinner - spaghetti or chicken scampy... leaning toward the scampy b/c it just sounds divine.

            I really really REALLY need to get back on track with movement. I think today I'll run - without a pace in mind. I will just run around the track for 15 minutes. Who cares how far I go, right? Pace doesn't matter, distance doesn't matter. Just moving is what matters. I need to make a better effort to lift weights too. Need to reimplement the Body For Life strength program. Badly. Gotta shrink those arms!!

            • Dude, probably thanks to you, I finally made over $100 in ads (it took a few years haha, but I've only started actively blogging this year), which means I get a payout! I don't know how long it'll take, but it could not be better timing. My work machine is blocking the ads, but I shall clicky-clicky when I get home.

              • My work machine blocks them too. I clicked 3x I think. I'm glad you're getting a pay out. I know you need it.

                • Thanks, Jen. As soon as I remember how to turn adblocker off in Chrome, I'll clickyclicky.

                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                  • Thanks, Naiad. I'm not sure I'm completely happy with it, but I'm getting there. I'm sure it'll receive a facelift or two before I'm completely satisfied with the layout and the features available.

                      More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.

                      • Judg, I'm also working on a project for school to "fix" the sponsorship program at work (when a new soldier comes to the island, he/she is given a sponsor who will help them get used to the area, get certain administrative things done and basically be their friend until they're settled and ready to fly on their own) because the people who sign up tend to fail at the job (they just don't do it) and that leaves soldiers floundering...

                        I'm also working the company Christmas party... So far, I've gotten two possible venues, one which is preferred...

                        The blog is my only "outside work or school" thing... and I'm enjoying it. Becoming a bit too evangelical with my studies though... you should see the number of articles I've posted to Facebook today that didn't necessarily pertain to my blog, but most definitely push for the Paleo lifestyle.

                        • Great job on the blog! I'm sure you'll have fun tweaking things to get it just right! I've thought of starting one for people with fibromyalgia. Not sure I have enough to say though........... eat this --- feel better!

                          As for moving --- yes, you will feel better - remember those endorphines? Run, walk, dance like Judg! Just MOVE I'm starting to think about what I will do this winter - its supposed to be a harsh winter in the Pac. NW this year. I don't do well in the cold - makes me hurt! So I will need to move indoors. I would like to buy a treadmill - but don't want to spend the money! I have several DVD's I could do -- a couple belly dancing kind, and my Tae Bo (love that one, but its a tough one!) I also have some Pilates. I guess I'll just have to do that.

                          I put your blog on my fav's --- I'll click on some ad's next visit

                          • Researching oppositional defiance disorder today. that's more in-line with what I think is going on with my little man. He was very defiant and annoying this morning. He kept doing things I told him to stop doing simply to annoy me, and I know this is what he was doing b/c he'd quit making one noise and start making another similar noise. Instead of clicking his tongue, he switched to slurping... then to flicking paper... annoying, repetitive noises. And intentially doing things to annoy people is a sign of ODD. ODD can be fixed with diet - namely, gluten-free, but also color free, casein/lactose freepreservative free, etc. We'll concentrate on gluten for a month, see if there's a difference. If there's not, we'll work on the next thing... probably dairy... a life without dairy is going to be SO hard for us. I mean, come on! I just discovered the wonder of Kerrygold butter! And cheese... we eat a lot of cheese.

                            This morning he started acting up after having breakfast. Makes me wonder if he's sensitive to eggs... Good lord, eggs are in EVERYTHING too! Anything baked has eggs... I really hope eggs aren't a problem for him, but I suppose we'll have to see if things don't improve.

                            My butt hurts today. I ran yesterday (15 minutes) and my butt muscles are sore. This is unusual. This makes me think that the strengthening stuff I've been doing is helping to improve my form and that the correct butt muscles are FINALLY doing the work when I run. Will have to email Dr. Lake and ask.

                            I was stressed last night after having a fight with Brady. You can read all about it on the blog. I don't want to write it all out again. Anyhow, afterward, when things settled down and I was the only one out of bed (Brad was working), I got into the unopened box of Chex... I felt like crap after. Not sure if it was the cereal or the milk. Probably the the milk, likely both (or the mixture of both).

                            Slept like a rock, though! I don't think I woke even once. Both kids slept through the night, which is really helpful.

                            I'm gonna head to the gym now. Need to do some strengthening. I want my arms to look nice.

                            • ODD can be a really hard thing to manage and life with - you're doing the right thing by tackling the food issues! You're a good mom, Jenn! Lots of moms would just medicate their kids and not even try to go about it the way you are. I'm wondering if it might be helpful to have him evaluated by a child psychologist - just so you know you're working on the right issue. ????

                              • I am reading up on parenting for an ODD child. Seriously, Tomi, I don't think an child psychologist is necessary for this instance. He exhibits EVERY. SINGLE. SYMPTOM of ODD. Every single one - as according to the Mayo Clinic. There are something like 15 signs/symptoms and he exhibits each one. Maybe if I don't get anywhere with diet and parenting techiques, I'll consider a psychologist.
