Ah, a very nice journal indeed. I will have to up my word count in order to fit in I see. Dark chocolate can be part of a primal way of eating. Many people here eat it daily. As long as it is not derailing your goals or hurting you in other ways then why stress it? Soda, yeah, that is a different animal, but given my coffee consumption, I will be the last to cast a stone. You've figured out that it isn't good for you, and that is great. I salute your resolve.
Third's riding school sounds awesome. Do the other Crabbcake the youngers ride as well? Reading here and elsewhere it sounds as if you have a great grip on what the younglings enjoy. Was it two bookcases of library stuff? That is crazy sauce. That said, I imagine it blends well with the homeschooling. Kids that read are awesome as are their parents. Speaking of parents, I am totally stealing "Ratfarts." Thank your husband for me.
Good luck with your liver fest
somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug
What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony
