Thanks To Fellow Sparkers!
The BEST "fast-food" tips I got : pre-sliced/packaged fruits and veggies. (My daughter kept getting into the pre-sliced apples today, I think she ate about four packs, which is SO AWESOME) We LOVE THOSE! SO convenient! And the lean cuisine/smart... Read more
So, I can't think of a title?
Tomorrow I am starting fresh. So, I probably didn't pick the best day to do so considering; I have to fast, and skip breakfast for blood-work in the morning; I am staying up all night so that I will make it to said appointment in the morning (he... Read more

Good things at the Farmer's Market.
I went to the Farmer's Market today and got some good fresh tomatoes and red potatoes from the local Mennonites. Talked to the representative of the local fruit farm to see when would be a good time to take Trinity there to pick our own apples. ... Read more
