Tony was right. Went home early Thursday, thought I could make it Friday, nope. Today is a massive headache which I think is caffeine withdrawals, but no need for a barf bucket, but still need a bathroom close.

Sara, so glad Your son is home safe and sound! Will he have to go back again?

Tony, I think the word fiber turns Chris green. Lol

Tony, good luck with the new tenant!
No Abigale, his contract is up on June 8 so he took what they call terminal leave. Basically it is the same as PTO/Vacation time he has built up.

Since we are camping across country, and I have been so so so bad with my carb intake, I have spent today making low carb foods to take with us. I made egg muffins with bacon, cheese and bellpepper for me and the same except sausage for the DH. I bought some bars from Aldi and have cheese sticks, pepperoni and olives. Lots of water and I am gonna make us mini cheesecakes to have as a dessert. I think I will boil some eggs too just for a quick grab snack. I do bullet proof coffee and found on pinback interest where people make up the stuff and freeze it making it easier to make in the morning. If I have time I will do some fat bombs too. We will be gone 3 weeks so I am hoping to get back on the low carb train. It has gotten so hard for me at work. I try to bring my own food but by midafternoon I am finding myself at the gift shop buying MnM's.

Abi, what a lovely family picture, and Tony's right, you look so skinny!!!

Chris, I hope you're feeling better!

Sara, From one Military Mom to another, Congratulations and THANK YOU for your family's service....it's very hard to be a military parent!!

FF, You can NOT bid farewell....you simply must stay with us....I'm sure Tony can help get you set up....we need you in this group!!

Tony, Some of our best family memories are camping with the kids in the RV, it's a great way to spend time together as a family!

Things are good here, 1 federal inspection down this week and 1 more to go on Thursday.....today's went well (as expected) and so will Thursday's. Saturday was kind of rough....we were out running errands with the kids and Sarah and I got SO SICK....It was AWFUL! Out of no where, I thought I was going to end up in the ER....they got me home and once things calmed down I was talking to my sister the Nurse....she told me it sounded like a gallbladder attack! I did some research and chatted with her, and yup....classic Gallbladder symptoms. Turns out she had her Gallbladder removed last year after she got so ill, and apparently we have a little bit of family history with it. I really do not want to go the surgery route, I figure God put it there for a reason, so I should try to keep it! I'm now working on a gallbladder flush....and let me tell you, I suddenly got SUPER SERIOUS about my diet....I don't ever want another of those attacks again! It ought to be interesting to see how this helps my weight loss!

wow, tammy, so sorry you felt so sick...sounds like you are on the right track now...at first i thought you were saying that sarah and you got sick!

abs, welcome back...i'm sure it's bittersweet, but i hope you had a good trip...sounds like you did!...it wasn't just the dark clothes - you look good!

chris, what did you eat to satisfy that hunger?...are you feeling better?

i'm the worst tech person among us, but i'd be happy to try to help ff...ff, pm me your email address and i will try to register you on that site...i'll make up a password and you can change it later...

emmy got released so no more reporting for jury duty...i'm gonna miss having those kids every week...

Feeling much better, had the munchies all day yesterday but managed to stay on track. Thank goodness for sf seeds!

Today is the last day of school for the kids since they don't have to take exams. Get all A's and B's and miss less than 2 days of school and you don't have to take them. Thing 1 has a 3.58 GPA this round and Thing 2 has a 4.02. Apparently you get a 4.047 for every A+ and he had 3! Not my kid, especially with the 101% in his biology class.

Baseball sectional tonight, we really sucked this year, I'll be shocked if we advance.

PS - last night at the band concert, I'd give it a C-, it wasn't the usual good concert. But the girl singing a solo, OMG she is so good. And to top it off, when I got in the truck, the radio was playing the only song I ever learned on the drums, the complete drum set, and even left handed. Thing 2 thought I was nuts just sitting their playing on my air drums until it was over. I seriously doubt I could actually play it any more. I won't mention it was Holy Diver by Dio, that will just show my age!

Tammy, so sorry about the gall bladder attack. Hoping the flush works for you!

Chris, your boys are so smart and talented! So great they don't have to take their exams! Would love to see you play the drums!

Best Breakfast EVER!!! The Old Man's birthday was yesterday, we had the pizza place we love. I managed to avoid eating any yesterday but scraped the top off of the leftover and made little mini crustless pizzas. That was to be lunch, but I got hungry so had some of it now.

Can't believe next Friday this will be no longer. I've been here longer than I've had children!

Game 2 of the baseball sectional was a snooze fest, down 3-1 after the 4th. Lots of bonehead plays, and Thing 1 had a very off game, like he had never played before. The Wheaties must have kicked in, at the end of the 5th, it was 3-7 and we kept them there.

Yesterday's weigh-in at work was ok, broke even from when it started. I don't expect to win any money this round, but I'll keep on trucking.

I need to make a shopping list, lasagna sounds good to eat at work next week. I need to put Linda Sue's spinach lasagna on an actual recipe card.

Have a great weekend!
