day four

well, its day four, and I was fine all day long....i had energy. I was fine without food. was dinner time. yeah. So, last night, my hubby grilled bbq chicken and I made the kids some mashed potatos...well, chicken did not get finished in time to feed the kids before church, so I ended up giving them some hot dogs and mashed potatos real quick. I know...healthy, right? Well, sorry. I was in a hurry. oldest ate a piece of chicken after church. Then hubby and youngest had some for lunch, theeeennnnn......he had to heat everything up and feed the kids, because, I can forgive the first two times I had to smell the decliciousness that was the bbq chicken completely filling my entire house, but, when it came to dinner and I had not eaten for four days....well, I wanted to crack. So....instead of cracking, he took care of dinner from start to finish and I locked myself in my bedroom and folded laundry. Let me tell you...I got a LOT of laundry done. Sheets washed and beds remade....everyone has plenty of clean underware, socks, shirts, and pants. ~sigh~ now its 8:30 and I am still hungry. But...after I come off this fast correctly (you have to do it slowly and carefully) my sister in law and I are going to cantino laredo for some especially yummy portabella mushroom and goat cheese enchiladas. Oh, dont wrinkle your nose! They are sooooooo goooood! Rolled up with some kind of spicy sauce on a bed of baby spinich and some crispy veggies on the side.
No...I do not intend to eat like that all the time, but come meat....and some very yummy stuff wrapped in a corn tortillia....who could ask for more. Now, I am going to drink some water because my mouth is WATERING!!!!!

day 3

I am now on day three of my cleanse/fast. I must say that I did not believe I would make it even this far, but I am just two days away from half way!!! That I made it through the first day was amazing. The only things that have been an issue for me thus far (besides the desire to shove every kind of food in my mouth) that I have experienced is that I am really sleepy. I have to sit down alot more than normal, but I am thinking that will pass after the first several days...I had a major headache, due to the lack of caffeine I am sure, but that passed and basically, the only other thing is, I am getting very familiar with all the things in my bathroom....well, that is to be expected. It is a cleanse, after all!
So, I am happy I have made it this far, and I am excited to accomplish this 10 day thing. My hubby commented on how proud he was of me and how good I was doing and that was nice. My daughter even offered to do it with me to give me support, but I told her no. I dont think it would be a good idea for her. She is only 13 and very, very thin.
On the other might fly out the window! I made a yummy (smelling) chicken and pasta dish for dinner last night for the fam. It smelled soooooo good in my house, I almost had to leave=/
Stay tuned for more.....

i've lost my mind.....

So, I meant to get a post up here yesterday for the big "DAY ONE!!!", however....I (at first) was too busy, then I was just too tired. So, here I am today for the big, "DAY TWO!!"

Whatever are you rambling about?, you ask....well....I (and two, possibly four) of my friends have started a 10 day cleanse/fast. Have you heard of The Master Cleanse? Well, a few members of my family did this a while back, and in conversing with them about it, and having one too many discussions with some other friends about parasites and worms, several of us have decided to give it a shot.
I am ashamed to say that I have never fasted before. Our church has been thru some church wide fasts, but I have not participated. I'm not too sure why, other than the fact that I never really believed I could make it through. But.....I am determined to do this. Yesterday, I failed miserably at what I planned to do as far as getting through the tough part. I planned to get my bible and my notebook out and read and write when it got tough.....yesterday, i failed at that. Instead, I curled up on the couch and watched tv and dozed off.....I was really tired! I am sure that the combo of no coffee, no soda, no food is what made me so sleepy...and this morning, wow...I was up for about an hour and I hit a wall of sleepy-ness!! I could
I have read all the "symptoms" and I think I am prepared for them....we shall see. In any event, it is my goal today to spend some time reading my bible and praying and writing a bit. I know that the only way I will make it 10 days with not food, while still having to prepare meals for the rest of my family, is to pray, pray, pray. And it helps to do this with someone else. My two girls are rooting for me, and I for them....
So, for one down! Bring on day two!!!

So....I rarely use my blog to vent about other people.....honestly, I really dont have that much to say about what other people do to me because I usually just blow it off and dont dwell on it. is another story. I've been sitting here wondering if I should respond, how to respond if I do and also, how to find out who to punch in the face. So, just to give you a general idea.....if you are a reader of my blog, you know that I usually write about funny or gross things that happen around here....and really...I just write for myself. Not for anyone in particular, though it does make me happy that other people read. And, I have never, no not once, gotten an ugly comment. Until the other day. I wrote my funny little poop water post, and then another silly thing that my daughter said, and I log into my account a day or two later and lo and behold, I have a comment to moderate. Usually, this makes me giddy. Not this time. Someone, and I have an idea of who it was, but am not 100% sure because the coward left the message as anonymous...yes, I just called you a coward.....anyway, left a very personal comment on my blog....and it was. not. nice. top it off, it wasnt even about me, or my was about something that is personal, and something that I dont want advertised.....and the comment was very obviously left as a jab at my family. And, I was going to just forget about it. I deleted it and said to myself....what a jerk, and left it at that. But I logged onto my account again, I wondered if I would see another jab.....I did not. But it pissed me off altogether again. is me...putting it out there. You can be a coward if you like and jab, jab, jab at my family all you want....but guess what....whoop-de-do. Are you perfect? Have you ever made mistakes? Oh, and by the call yourself a christian.....yep...that was reeeeaaaallllll Jesus-like. Got any guts? Say something to my face. But I bet you wont. I bet you wont ever say anything. Cuz that's how cowards roll. How sad for you to be a coward....How sad.
Well, that's all I got! Back to happy for me. I will let the coward roll around in their own kind of poo.....I'd rather deal with the kind I can wash off!

for corrie......

ok interesting that I should read your comment at the precise moment I am currently laughing at something and signed into my blog because I "have GOT to blog this!"

Tonight, we are sitting here in the living room. We don't have any cable, so we are very limited in what we are watching these days...*side note: not a bad thing:)...and Luke, Jordan, and Peyton are sitting here watching Ace Ventura 2 while I am working on the computer. Well...I was working! So....its the beginning of the movie, and if you have not seen this movie, I will give you a very brief synopsis because it pertains to the story.
Ace, while trying to rescue a raccoon from a mountain top, loses his grip on the animal and it falls to its death, therefore leading him to go live with monks due to his grief and guilt. Someone comes to get him from the monastery for a job and while on the plane to the job, the stewardess says to him, "Nuts?" His reply is something close to, "no thanks, I have one...." and she says to him, "NO...Nuts?" while holding out a bag of peanuts. .....the movie goes to commercial and Jordan climbs on Luke's lap and asks a few questions about what happened to the raccoon...while explaining, Luke also explained about the monastery and why he went to live there....her reply....."is that what happened to him then? because he was really smart and then something happened because he forgot what nuts are"
Maybe you had to be there, but it took me a good long time to stop laughing under my breath.
Luke just picked her up and said, "oh, my sweet sweet, innocent little baby girl"
I love having is never, ever boring!
