Had the best day back to school shopping with my DS. It still does not seem possible that he is entering 10th grade. How did that happen!?! Eight stores, two bags of office/school supplies, four bags of clothes, one pair of shoes, BAS for lunch and a walk around the University where I will be taking a class beginning next week filled our day.
We managed to make it home in time to start thinking dinner, grilled pork chops, salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette, some rice (for the boys) and cantaloup for dessert. My husband and son have not given up the SAD entirely. While I do the cooking and shopping, which I thoroughly enjoy, bread and crackers are still in my pantry and ice cream/Popsicles in the freezer. This can be trying at times for me, but for the most part, I have been able to walk away. Fortunately, I feel like I have been run over by a truck when I ingest anything with gluten. So it is just a matter of asking myself before I eat something if I really want it and the consequences that follow and I have been pretty successful with this approach.
Today will offer up some challenges as we will be heading out to the in-laws. My MIL is very sweet, but still has some trouble wrapping were brain around my WOE. The day will be filled with many questions about what foods are primal and what have I been feeding her son and grandson. Gotta love family!
