Back to It

Posted by nattya61 on April 14, 2010

Last week I was terribly sick. Food poisoning I’m pretty sure.  I lost 16 pounds between Wednesday afternoon and Friday evening. The irony is I think I got sick from a salad. Read the rest of this entry »

Food, Inc.

Posted by nattya61 on February 8, 2010

I like food. It’s no secret. I love to eat. It’s amazing I ever became this way because while growing up, meal time was not fun time. Momma had serious food issues. Read the rest of this entry »

Food Talk

Posted by nattya61 on January 13, 2010

I’ve been trying to eat better. Not diet. If I believed in a devil I’d say he invented diets. I’m just trying to eat better  in an effort to be healthier this year. Read the rest of this entry »

Why Sometimes Slowing Down Is Good

Posted by nattya61 on December 17, 2009

When I’m home by myself with Nick I try to stay in the same room with him as much as possible, but let’s be realistic, sometimes, a girl’s gotta pee. Read the rest of this entry »

Feeling Better!

Posted by nattya61 on November 25, 2009

So, after being on iron pills for three days and trying to eat better…ok, trying to actually eat more than cereal and spinach dip, I am feeling much better. Yay!

Nick’s first tooth came in yesterday! So exciting! Well, it’s exciting to me. He won’t let us see it, yet. We can feel it, though. He’s also babbling “Mama” incessantly now, and not just when he’s mad. He’s going to be the cutest little thing at Thanksgiving this year!

Today starts my countdown to Thanksgiving break! In 23 hours Nick, Bryan, and I will be on the road to Salem and heading towards food and family! 

On a side note (pun intended), am I the only one who considers turkey more of the afterthought of the Thanksgiving meal. I always seem to put it on my plate first, but it’s the one thing I least enjoy eating. I love all the side dishes – the dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce (if it’s homemade), sweet potatoes, and even the corn and green beans, but the turkey is something I always doctor up with the cranberry sauce and potatoes so I can actually enjoy it. Now, I know turkey is probably the healthiest thing on the plate and eating it probably keeps me from eating too much pie after the meal since the protein is more filling and such, but still. If the turkey was absent, I’d probably be just as happy with the Thanksgiving meal.

Well, it’s time for me to sign off for now. Today there is still work to do, and I need to write up my packing list so packing will go much quicker tonight. I’m all about lists, for those of you who don’t know.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Life Lessons

Posted by nattya61 on November 17, 2009

I’ve realized that through all the recent hassles, scares, annoyances, and just plain messes lately that each and every life experience is a learning experience that makes us not only more knowledgeable, but they also make us learn to trust ourselves and our instincts.

Restaurants on a Roll: I Give a Big “Eww!” to Yahoo

Posted by nattya61 on November 9, 2009

Yahoo posted an article about restaurants who have “gotten it right” in this economy. Here’s my problem, of the restaurants on the list that I’ve been to, they are places I’d rather not waste my money. Let’s look at the list. Read the rest of this entry »
