So, creative post titles may not be my forte….

Things of note about today. My oldest child refused to go to school again. The stress caused me to go shopping, again. Also, I am fairly certain I am gluten intolerant.

The oldest child not going to school is a new thing. It was always my younger child who had refused to go. I fear he may have set a bad example. The old one is suffering this year though and I’m not sure how to help her.

Shopping is my go to for stress relief. It used to be nothing. I wasn’t really stressed but life piles up and it needs an outlet, so I shop. Today I bought a new pair of trainers, justified by their blackness. I also bought way too many groceries, again. Apparently, I just love throwing out food. I’m always throwing out food. Meal planning is one of my 2015 goals. (The other person who lives in my head just cackled wildly as I typed that she doesn’t think it will happen.)

As for the gluten thing. I almost hate to even write it down. Its such a hot topic right now. However, I am noticing a lot of digestion problems directly related to what i just ate so……heres my plan. I’m going to do another whole 30. I did one last January/February and afterwards I felt pretty good. This time I will do it as an elimination diet and see about adding things back in way more slowly. The main issue is that I hate meat. Seriously, I don’t like the taste, the texture, but more importantly the idea of eating my friends. I don’t really eat mammals already, except on very rare occasions. It makes a whole 30 is somewhat tricky for me. Lots of fish, eggs, fruit and veg on the menu I guess.

This is the little truant, in case you wanted a face for the story. She looks innocent doesn’t she?



A true tale four years in the making.

So, the funny thing is that I just noticed I made this home page and chose this blog name in 2010. January 2010. It seems that constantly thinking about something is not the same as actually doing it. Who knew? The world of blogging seems to have blown up in the mean time, and I am forced to ask myself this, why did I want to start a blog to begin with. The main answer is that I thought it would be funny. Do I mean I thought I would be funny? Do I mean that the idea of having a blog is funny? Short answer to that is the second. Who am I to have a blog? Do I have anything to even add to the world of snacks that hasn’t been said yet? Do I still care about snacks? It’s been four years after all. The answer to that is that yes I do love snacks. no, I don’t love them enough to blog about them all the time. So where does that leave us in this long rambling first post of things? Apparently, it leaves us with a lot of questions, which is how I find myself every minute of every day anyway. So I think that what this blog is going to try and be about is making steps forward to answer some of those questions and in fact making steps forward to make steps forward. Also, there will probably be snacks, I have a long way to go after all.
