Well, it’s Monday again. Granted, the rest of the
world US has the day off, I do not, but that is the bargain you take when you become a mom. Anyways…I’m feeling ambitious this morning in spite of it all. In the interest of becoming more healthy, my hubby and I are looking at just taking that extra step and going vegetarian. My husband wants to go vegan, but I’m not sure I’m ready for that yet (or ever.) I still like me some cheese, milk, eggs and BUTTER. (Yes, I’m aware that those are all full of saturated fat.) Plus, it’s difficult enough planning meals every week (especially for the kids) that are healthy with meat, it’s going to be a little bit more difficult to eliminate the meat (we pretty much only eat fish and poultry) and I don’t need the added difficulty of trying to figure out how to do my recipes without eggs, milk, cheese or butter… yet, anyways.
So this week, I will be educating myself about getting all the necessary nutrition whilst being a vegetarian. I will probably be sharing my findings here.
Also…last week, I looked up some info on MSG, just to educate myself on what it is, and why it’s bad for you, and boy did I find a scary article! Plus, I am shocked at how much of our food has some form of MSG in it. If you’re interested in the topic, I also recommend looking it up here, and click on the glutamic acid links and so forth. That way you can get a fairly good understanding of what it is. Anyways…all that to say, I’m trying to eliminate most of the free glutamic acids as possible from our diet.
Also, one of my goals for the week is to re-do my address system. I got some index cards and a box, and will be writing down all my contacts on index cards and organizing them alphabetically. (A bit cheaper than a Rolodex, too.) This way, I can also take all the business cards Kevin gets and organize them into our address system too.
Wednesday, both Drew and Selah have a well-child visit together, and my mom is going to be here to help out with that. (Thank goodness! I hate going to those on my own!) Then she is going to stay and hang out for the day and we’ll go play with some clay later on that night.
Friday, Kevin has a gig here in town, which I probably will be staying at home with the kids for.
And now I’m off to balance my checkbook,
and the weight of the world didn’t I tell you I was being ambitious?
