    Well, I think you explained your funk. But at least you got it out in the open. Here's hoping it helps with the situation. Great news about your son's house.

    Sorry about the step kids being such PIAs! Yeah on son and finding a great deal. I'm currently reading Making Shift Happen. You might see if the library has it. I'm finding it very helpful and the writer follows a Paleo diet!

    I have Make Shi(f)t Happen on my Amazon Wish List! The author is Dean Dwyer. He has a facebook page and a website all dedicated to the Paleo diet and all that jazz we stand for.

    Kudos to son for finding a house! YAY! Hopefully he doesn't get into an offer war with the sellers and can just buy and move out. Good deal for him!! (and you)

    I hear ya about hubby being all grabby and less lovey. I feel like mine is extra grabby - especially since he's started getting those damned testosterone shots. Those really bug me. Hopefully the maca comes soon so I can desire for his grabbiness... lol

    Yup - my delivery date was about the same for the Maca. Oh well - whats another 2 weeks?

    Sleep last night totally SUCKED!!!! went to bed at 9:30 - fell right to sleep!!! woke up at 10:30, hot and hearing my hubby snoring! grrrr....... woke up again at 11:30, dang it! Got up and came downstairs in the wee hours of the night - wrote on here for a bit - my stomach was yucky from that yummy chili - achy and bloated. Finally got into a deep sleep around 3:30 - hubby woke me to say goodbye at 6:30 - slept until 9:00. I feel drug out and sluggish today.

    So final count for Thanksgiving is 26 - with 11 coming from ONE house. If those 5 un-invited guests weren't coming we would have a nice comfortable 21. Our house can handle that number without being too crowded. We're moving some furniture and setting up tables in 2 rooms. Hopefully we can make this work. I want to decorate the tables nicely this year instead of just throw some chairs under the plastic folding tables and call it good. Not sure what I'll do - but I'll figure it out. I'll hit the dollar store and see what I can find. Throw away table covers and some simple table decorations is all I want. Maybe I'll go there today. I could even walk since its only about a mile away. A backpack would work for carrying it all home. A destination walk with a purpose of more than just to walk.

    Hubby was extra tender and loving yesterday. It was so nice to be "cherished" as opposed to "lusted after"! Not that the "lusting" doesn't have its time and place but when thats all there is it gets old really fast!!! Jenn......... I would guess our hubby's would be great buddies!

    Our 5th wheel is still at the fix-it shop. This guy and hubby barter for work on the each others "toys". He fixes and details our 5th wheel, hubby fixes his boat. He's had our 5th wheel for a month now and I don't think he's touched it. GRRRR. I still need to get it put back together! The chairs for the dining table have been sitting in my livingroom for a month! The cat thinks they are her personal sleeping platform. And the valances are all in the garage - piled up on top of the 5 tons of wood pellets (our home heating source) --- the fabric to finish the side curtains and the new wallpaper border has been sitting on my diningroom table for 2 weeks - having to move everytime we have guests for dinner! I want to get this project done!!! I can understand his need to work on "paying" jobs instead of bartering jobs........ but he's had it for a month for heaven's sake! All he is doing is washing the outside - and checking all the seals --- and finding out why the furnace and a small section of ceiling lights isn't working. It shouldn't be taking so long. GRRRR..........

    BORING WARNING............. random thoughts about stuff.........

    Boatshop changes coming........ we're laying off Kevin for the winter months. He said when we hired Joe that he would be willing to take the winters off in order to bring Joe on. Kevin is 27 years old - he lives with his parents still. Joe is also 27 years old, married with 3 children. Kevin has been with us for about 7 years now. Joe was hired in the spring of 2010. I love Kevin, he's a sweet kid, reliable, responsible and trust worthy ............... but SLOW!!!! and very socially "strange". Kevin is a farmers son. And he runs on ONE speed........ slow. I honestly don't think he has EVER been productive enough to cover his own wages and benefits. Hubby agrees now that he see's what Joe is doing. I'm HOPING hubby agree's with me and does not bring Kevin back in the spring. Hubby and Joe can easily handle the load - and I want to be able to add Joe's wife to the medical insurance, or give him a raise and the option of paying for Katie out of his paycheck. I believe the kids are all covered under the Oregon Health Plan. This would all translate into a savings of about $$2200 a month for the business. Between payroll changes, tax savings, uniform savings and bennies (vacation, end of year bonuses, lunches...) HOLY COW -- thats a savings of $26,400 a year!! And honestly I think thats a bit conservative - but its close.

    If all that translates into that kind of a profit for the boatshop........ maybe we could do some home remodeling in a couple years? Boatshop profits are all personal income as far as Uncle Sam is concerned. As long as we pay the taxes we can use the profits for whatever we want! I mean - we either pay the taxes and leave the money in the business account - or we pay the taxes and use it for something personal. Either way - Uncle Sam gets his 30%. SUCKS! The downstairs bathroom needs to be gutted and completely rebuilt. The kitchen needs updating and a few little structural changes. I think we're giving the fridge to my son for his new house - so we'll be getting a new one soon - but we also want to upgrade the stove to a gas range and move it over so the walkway through the kitchen is more direct instead of the current corner to corner path. Right now its an electric cooktop with all a wall oven. And I hate them both! The oven is about 3/4 normal size, and the cooktop sags in the center so none of our pans will cook evenly - and electric cooking just sucks! We want to change the arrangement just a tiny bit so the traffic flow through the kitchen is better - and that means new flooring through the kitchen and dining areas. It needs new counter tops - and I have resigned myself to keeping the current cabinets - I'll just strip them down and give them a new stain and sealer, and new hardware. If I can convince hubby I will also remove the wood from the ceiling and walls and have sheetrock installed. It would sure brighten up the space. If I had my way totally I would vault the ceiling so it matches the living/dining ceiling and put in a skylight. That would be AWESOME! But............ I'm dreaming too big here. I don't want to invest $50K into the kitchen!

    Blah Blah Blah............... I'm rambling. Sorry.

    I didn't weigh again this morning. I decided I might need to just relax a bit about the whole thing. I will eat sensibly and primally - move daily with my 2-3 miles of walking - and hope for the best. A little break from the hyper-vigilance might do me some good. So, no calorie/macro tracking either. But I will still keep track of my basic goals. I'm only 11 miles away from hitting 300 miles of walking/biking for 2012. Thats pretty exciting considering a year ago I could barely walk a block!

    Hubby just said we are on for the boat delivery to southern oregon - so, its time to prepare for a road trip. Cave Junction is a bit of a drive. Mapquest says 240 miles and about 4 hours. Well have to spend the night someplace. I will see if there is someplace cool we can go on a short hike tomorrow!

    I suppose I should get myself moving for the day - I never did take care of the leaves yesterday - and unfortunately we haven't had much wind to blow them away and make them someone elses problem! Have a good day all!

    Tomi-
    I've decided thanks to MSH book to not get on the scale for a bit. I may measure my waist (the problem spot) or not. I've not decided, but I do know I'm going to go by how my clothes fit. weighing gets me depressed especially when others (who see me about every other month) keep saying I'm loosing and the new clothes I bought in August are loose in the waist.

    Friday afternoon...... I ate 3 eggs for breakfast and took all my supplements like a good girl! had a little snack of almond butter just a minute ago.

    Lazied for most of the morning - okay ALL of the morning. I walked a mile, then loaded on the backpack blower and conquered the mountains of leaves in my driveway and front yard --- I ran out of gas and didn't finish the backyard. Hubby gets gas at a station that sells non-ethenol fuel for farm equipment - keeps the tools in better running condition. So I will have to wait until he fills up the cans to finish the back yard -- OR, us a rake (eeeewww)!

    We are going on a road trip - leaving after hubby gets home from work - maybe 6:30ish. I made reservations for tonight at the 1/2 way point. We're going to Cave Junction - its nearly to the California border - so maybe down in the old growth area? maybe we'll have time for a some site seeing before we head north in the afternoon. I should have something ready to eat as soon as he gets home so we don't have to stop and eat on the way.......... He can eat chili and the last bit of cornbread - I'm going to have some salmon. My tummy will like that much better!

    I suppose I'd feel better if I took a shower and made myself look nice for my husband........ Better get moving.

    You know, the achy tummy could have been from the corn bread and not the chili. Corn is second only to wheat in the problems it causes. Like, it isn't primal at all. I hate to see you making yourself sick, if that is what caused the problem. Have you tried the Brazilian cheese bread yet? It could be a new tradition with chili.

    Judg - I never thought about the cornbread causing the tummy issues.......... You may be right. Although, tomato based dishes consistantly give me trouble so I know for sure that is what causes the burning sensation. But the bloat and basic blech feeling was probably from the corn. Dang.......... I love cornbread! I'll go back through your thread and get that recipe for the brazilian cheese bread and give that a try next time I'm needing bread. I'm all out of almond meal/flour now though - so I will have to be VERY needy of a bread type item before I will spend $10 on a tiny little bag again. Besides, I imagine the calorie content of almond meal is very high! I knew corn was not primal - but didn't know it was that terribly bad. I've got to read more I guess.

    Its 3:40 AM.......... I'm trapped in a tiny hotel room with a very loudly snoring husband. I've slept about 15 minutes all night. I should have brought my ear plugs, but honestly, when he's really going at it, even the ear plugs don't block the noise. I've seen an infomercial for a thing called zquiet for snorers. I'm going to do some research and see if I think I should order it for him. It was made by an ENT I think......... and its only $70 or something like that.

    Continental breakfast looks like pastries and waffles - so we may end up going across to the restaurant for breakfast - I hate to do that when breakfast is free at the hotel, but what am I going to do? I'm not going to eat yucky donuts or a waffle so I have no choice. I'm hoping there will at least be some fruit. I'm already hungry so I would love to see this night end and get on with it! I don't expect I will be getting any sleep until I get home tomorrow........... maybe on the drive home I will be able to crash in the backseat of the truck or something?

    I was watching "say yes to the dress" at about 2 AM. Wow....... there are some real bitches in this world! This mother of the bride was being so horrible to the best friend of the bride....... she made her cry. I wanted to slap her!

    Oh my gosh .............. I wish my computer could record this man snoring!!! I wonder if my webcam could make a video of him??? I'm going to see.............. it will give me something to do for the rest of the night. I should have brought my sweats - I could be down on the treadmill or something.
