My sister sent me a meme a few days ago: "Only a woman who has given birth without an epidural can understand a man with a cold." Right now my Petie Boo is upstairs with what I call a "boy cold." It's just like a man cold, except the patheticism is much more endearing. Honestly, … Continue reading Some Sick Days Are Good Days
I only decided to post this recipe after discovering that all three of my kids, two of whom normally spit out "fruit chunks" in their cookies, devoured them. (Consequently, I took no pictures while making them.) I made them on Saturday to replace the store-bought granola bars we've been relying a little too much on … Continue reading Granola Bar Cookies
Photo by a befendo on Unsplash Whole 30 Day 26 for me. For Dr. Awesome, today was simultaneously Whole30 Day 19, and Day "Over." And now our Mama is all alone. I admit, I enabled my darling husband's farewell to this anti-inflammatory diet. I delivered him an inflammatory double quarter pounder with cheese, fries, and … Continue reading A Truly Happy Meal

Day 13. And to call it Friday the 13th is fitting, because this is the first day I just want to say THIS SUCKS! Well, maybe not entirely. But pretty much. So I haven't posted any recaps in the last week of my Whole30, and it's just because I've been too busy with momlife and … Continue reading Friday the (Whole30) 13th
Whole30 Day 6. This is the first day so far this week that I am scratching my head and asking myself, "What's for dinner?" Yes, usually Thursday is Leftover Night in our house, but since Doc has been out of town I pulled a single mom survival tip and made Tuesday Leftover Night instead. Which … Continue reading So, What’s for Dinner?
If it weren't for Tessamae's Creamy Ranch Dip, I would be as off the Whole30 wagon right now as my husband. Seriously. Dr. Awesome Inhaler of Cake and Pizza didn't last five minutes around the party food. I'm not sure what did it: the fact that he could see those cheesy, tempting pizzas, that fact … Continue reading Tessamae, You Saved My Day
