Today, I think I'll...
make a fruit smoothie for breakfast...
which by the way, my recipe is SO much better than Jamba Juice,
I'll work from 4-230, I'll do some laundry on my lunch and breaks,
take my kids to the library when I'm off,
make chicken tacos for dinner,
go to my monthly Bunco gathering this evening,
come home, wrap my arms around my hubby, read the kids their nightly story and
bask in this wonderful life I'm living!!

(now tomorrow may be a different story)

About a month and a half ago I started taking thyroid medication. The pharmacist AND the doctor both said there were no major side effects. Immediately I noticed that if I don't take it with a TON of water then my mouth gets really dry SO I take it with a ton of water. And then about 3 weeks later I noticed some swelling in my ankles and feet...nothing major but I could definitely notice. Called the doctor, she said it was nothing and to ease up on the sodium if it continues. But you tell me, is this nothing? Because it's a huge difference from this which was just two months ago. Can you say Cankles?!
Any solutions or suggestions would be gladly accepted.

Man vs. Food

A picture story...with a few words.

Man pulls watermelon out of fridge and prepares self for assumes the position (and tries not to laugh when he sees that we have the camera out). Man brings arm down at lightening speed and makes contact with the watermelon..and with much determination on his face...he splits the watermelon in one chop.
(This is actually right after he hit it as his hand was bouncing off of the watermelon)
Defeated, the watermelon lay there split in two...and man shows watermelon his respect.
