I'm not pregnant...

Tonight a commercial came on TV for some antidepressant. The narrator listed signs of depression....


weight gain

mood swings

inability to focus

change in eating habits

aches and pains


Its then that I realized I must be depressed!

2 + 1 = ?

Please tell me about going from two to three children.

What was easy that you expected to be hard?

What did you not expect?

What was most shocking?

From Sunday


She's bubbling with excitement

Anti-vegan Father's Day Dinner

We started with a vegan favorite of mine actually. Grilled portabella mushrooms. Drizzle both sides with olive oil and sprinkle generously with kosher salt. Grill both sides until tender.

I didn't get a picture though.

Then we had a Caesar Salad with homemade dressing which I'll hone and try again

It was 1 egg yolk beaten, 2-3 T olive oil, 2 T lemon juice and a few drops of Worcestershire sauce. Once I salted the salad it was really good. I'll add garlic next time and more Worcestershire along with the salt.

Then we had sirloin

Which was covered in shrimp with parmesan sauce

Looks good!

This was preceded by playing outside.

This was all Saturday though.

Sunday we got up while dad slept in. I made a cherry streusel pie, also not photographed, and then when daddy got up we had apple pancakes and bacon. Sis and dad also sampled the pie.

Then we headed out for a bit.

After getting over how loud it was there, Grey had a good time.

She really liked it when one machine payed out 75 tickets

Afterwards we went to grandma and grandpa's for dinner.

No pictures but I gorged on watermelon and pasta salad (filled with broccoli and zucchini!) along with another nice steak.

We actually have steak leftover that I'll broil to reheat tonight. Steak 3 nights in a row! Very un-vegan. We don't normally eat like this so its been a special treat for Shawn who's favorite meals generally include big chunks of meat and dark green salads.

Choke, sputter.....

I have one tattoo. I got it when I was 19.

Its small and in the middle of my upper back.

I'd like another. The main question is where to put it. Once I've decided that then I'll decide on a design.

I love these:

Random Thursday

-I got a haircut and I like it.

-I'm back on coffee after being mostly off it for 4 months

-I cleaned out a box of stuff I've ignored for the last year, since we moved in

-I want to devour books and wish I could spend my whole day reading

-I'm starving all the time now but rarely can come up with the inspiration to cook

-I'm exhausted and have insomnia

-I'm pissed off that the 5 largest oil companies made $36 Billion in profits the first quarter of this year. Just 8 years ago they made $18 Billion per year in profits. Interesting coincidence?

-I'm thrilled that my 2 3/4 yr old is nearly toilet trained

My brave little toaster

Its very interesting to watch your children become themselves and make choices about their appearances.
