Haha, "keep talking talky person" I loved that! I did take the Myers Briggs test and I'm an ISTJ. I have a feeling that the S means I easily experience sensory overload, which would explain why I hate crowds and close spaces so much. The T is definitely logical and the J means I like to have rules, or at least some organized plan, to follow.
I can deal with chatty clients. One on one I'm not too bad and I've had lots of practice at getting people to cut to the chase without completely insulting them. The schmoozing at events is a problem. I've been trying to confine my schmoozing to small events with specialized agendas, ie, particular topics being discussed at a section meeting at the local bar office. That way I already know what the conversation will consist of and there's not much need for small talk. It's the big gala type stuff that I really can't stand and will avoid as much as possible. I always want to collapse after stuff like that too. 1127 days ago
Thanks for the blog comment last week. I do love my natural peanut butter! I like almond butter too. No costco though. However, when I started grinding my own almond flour in a coffee grinder, I was told that if you grind it too long, it starts to turn to butter. Maybe I should try that sometime! 1137 days ago
Here's someone else who is making maple syrup! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j ournal.asp?id=PUDLECRAZY (The blog is called "My Fitbit Broke" but her second topic is about making syrup :-) ) 1169 days ago
Thanks for your comment. I learned yesterday that the only strokes where you are supposed to exhale the whole time is breast and back, because you can breathe in any time. Made sense to me. My freestyle was a lot better today, although the new rhythm is taking a while to get used to. I have to make sure I exhale in time so my inhale is not too late. 1273 days ago
Hi Kelly, thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm still really confused about all this cholesterol stuff. I did check out the links you put up. I'm not sure I'm ready to wrap my head around the westonaprice.org site, but finding a low carb doctor is probably not a bad idea. My insurance sucks and makes you jump through hoops to be able to see the docs you want.
I really do not get the whole dietary cholesterol argument. If it's saturated fat that causes cholesterol problems, then why does everyone insist that you shouldn't eat more than 300 mg of cholesterol a day? 1315 days ago
