I hope all goes well for him
Sounds like you had a happy and productive day yesterday - good for you! Your "kid cave" sounds like a great use of the space. Your son sounds sweet - put please don't tell him that . Its great to have a child - especially a teen - who actually communicates with his family. Hope he has a heavenly time!
I feel like I ought to be wearing a bumper sticker that says: "Don't follow me I am lost." I am just a seeker like everyone else.

My husband just dropped Billy off and met Becca & Mom. He liked them both. They live just a few miles down the road.
This morning we went to the verizon store, got my husband a smart phone then got a new number for his flip phone and gave it to Billy. So in one week Billy got a new girlfriend and a cell phone. Teenage boy heaven?
Today I have my first facial peel and lightbox therapy appointment. I know, not very Primal. I'll let you guys know how it goes and if I suddenly look years younger.
Let me know abt the lightbox therapy especially. I've been curious on that for a while.

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!"

It's a miracle!
OK maybe not, but my face feels good. The glycolic peel was only three minutes long. I was expecting an hour of torture.
The light therapy took 30-45 min. She used a blue light to kill the bacteria in my pores, then a red light to build collagen. She is worried that If I continue to lose weight, I will lose all the subcutaneous fat on my face and look old. She was amazed that I had lost 60 lbs and still looked young. I told her how I eat, but did not push the belief that by eating all good fats while losing weight, I won't get that over dieted haggard look.
She eats basically paleo herself due to being celiac, so she is open to hearing my story. She is very easy to talk to, almost like a therapist that works on your face while you tell her your troubles. lol It was very relaxing.
*Insider info - 1)She said puffy eyes are usually a result of allergies or sinus congestion. The best treatment is teabags for 20 min. Take a caffeinated tea, run two teabags under warm water, then cool, squeeze out excess water. Lay down in bed with your head slightly elevated on a pillow. Place a teabag on each eye. Sadly, though the old Preparation H trick will work, it is harsh and will age your under eye skin faster.
2) For foundation, she prefers Bare Minerals or Clinique. Bye Bye Maybelline and other drug store friends.

Thanks for the recipe, Pebbles.
I hope your son had a smashing time on his date and has more to come. Sounds like a high school sweetheart into marriage start!
Lucky kid. I didn't get a cell phone until I turned 20 and had to pay for it myself! lol

It's funny, Turbotax was going through my dependents and asked me if Billy had gotten married in 2011. I guess 16 is the legal age in NY. So of course I went to his room and told him that he could get married now. I got a lovely eye roll for my efforts. The best part is due to the bridal shows, I have Mother of the Groom dress ideas. :P
