    :( It is official.

    My veins are too small to give plasma.

    No $60 per week for me.

    Honey did it again, but it was a comedy of errors, and took FOREVER. I don't know if he will go back. He has a low frustration point right now.

    Understandably. We got back home to another rejection. Both of us were very down for the afternoon.

    I have a new prospect for dumpster diving: a little semi-Farmer's Market. I might be able to score some veg! You know by now that I am rather timid about this whole enterprise, so don't expect a stellar report, but I've checked their hours of operation, and where their trash cans are. Next step: walking by the cans and getting comfortable with looking in. Maybe by the end of next week I'll feel brave enough to reach in and grab something.

    Today I will be making FUDGE! (To bring along to the craft fair tomorrow. I asked Middlest if she thought it would be okay to try and sell fudge, or if people would think fudge is inappropriate at a CRAFT fair. She said fudge is NEVER inappropriate! So I'm going for it.) Regular, dark chocolate, peppermint, maple pecan, and pumpkin fudge. Any leftovers will go to Middlest's teachers and counselor as thank-yous for their recommendation letters.

    Okay, who am I kidding? Any leftovers that make it past US. I mean, FUDGE!

    Oh, did I mention that I have been carefully drinking at least a gallon of water per day these past five days, trying to 'plump up' for the plasma extraction. Didn't help with that, but it got me back in the habit. I'm feeling better being properly (for me) hydrated.

    Coll, I usually try new recipes on Saturdays. That way, if it's a flop, no one has to be in bed by any particular time and I can order a pizza. lol Of course, that's a bit more difficult now that we don't EAT pizza, but you know what I mean.

    Sabine, you must be one busy lady since you didn't post much yesterday... unlike you. I hope all is well.

    I wish I had been busier yesterday. Too much time to sit and feel glum. But today I am running around like a busy bee, indeed. One of the fun things I will be doing is making tags for my bags with some of my scrapbooking supplies. Could have done it yesterday, but I was involved in moping.

    I'm sure the craft fair will be lots of fun and will probably be a sell out for the fudge...... cuz come one! FUDGE! who doesn't LOVE fudge?

    Good luck on the Saturday "after" market too

    Fudge - I had a very intense affair with fudge for a long time. I DAREN'T let one bite pass my lips or I will be bingeing for another month or two!! I thought for a moment of making fudge to take to the craft fair that I am preparing for. But, lets not kid myself, I would probably eat more fudge than I sold!! Talk about dancing on the edge - not going there! Hope you sell the whole lot and have fun to boot!

    So sorry to hear that the latest job fell through. Dang, it is time that something came together for you guys!! I can relate so well, though our situation was different of course! Trusting that you guys will be able to make lemonade during these times when lemons are coming your way. We will keep you in our prayers. Keep us posted on the latest - we are with you as best we can through the ether!!! Hugs {{}}

    It's cold enough for a hot bath here!

    This is what I would like MY success story to include:

    I'm not obsessed with food any more. My past life where I would be planning what to have next, checking how much money was in my purse, so I could see if I could drive thru for a quick snack while I was doing errands, sneaking food, not knowing what I wanted, but eating, eating, eating, anyways...is gone! I forget to eat, I don't worry about getting hungry, I stop when I'm full.

    I eat to live, not live to eat.

    I've switched my family over, and they love it.

    My allergies are gone.

    I think nothing of walking to do my errands.

    Once I got back into the groove after my last slip, the weight just came off steadily. Now I have no trouble getting back to it after I eat something questionable. Or feeling alert when I have to stay awake longer.

    I'm so rested from my good sleeping habits.

    I had to buy all new clothes, and I look GOOD in them.

    And good out of them, too!

    Two friends of mine have asked me what I did- and started primal themselves!

    My new friends find it hard to imagine I was ever over-weight.

    I'm using my new energy to tackle projects I've been afraid of for years. I feel like I can do anything!
    What a lovely, lovely list!

    A lot. Get thee to an Indian restaurant and find out. Or try the Tikka Masala recipe on MDA.

    Sabine, sorry you're still going through a rough time. Did you ever apply at the business of that fellow you met at the fast food place?
