Feedback on the bake sale
What are your thoughts on the bake sale? If you didn't participate, what held you back from participating? I would love feedback to make it better if I do something like it again. The $20 minimum was to cover shipping for the bakers-it can be super expensive to ship!!
I *tried* to get up and run at 5am this morning for 2 hours. I didn't try hard, I just rolled over and went back to sleep. I ran for an hour in the morning then a half hour later on. I don't think I'm going to even try tomorrow to run in the morning. When I was running, and not into it AT ALL, the Tour was on. It was motivating and cool to watch and enabled me to finish. I think it is neat how the girls wear dresses the same color as the shirt that is being presented. I like the color thing. Lance - he can bike, he can run, can he swim? I wonder if an ironman is in his future...or past?
When I was dating Bill, I was a wacko. He is from CT and I was living at home in PA. We would see each other on some weekends throughout the summer when we were both living @ home. When he would leave I would be in my room crying - yes crying, because I missed him so much. When I was growing up, I would be head over heels in love (or so I thought) with a boy - and he would be all I could think about, I devoted all my time to the boy and memorized his personal info, and just thought about him all day long. One of them was eating mustard and I didn't like it but ate it anyway. I was insane. It is in my personality - ALL or nothing and I took it to the extreme.
What does this have to do with anything? Lately I feel like I am a little wacko with Nick. I don't want anyone else putting him to bed or watching him. I don't want to miss a moment with him. I already miss the middle of the night holding him and him falling asleep on my shoulder. I don't want him to grow up before my eyes and boom! he's going away to college. I've been all emotional and weird about it and need to let go a bit. I am starting to think going back to work may have been the healthy idea for my attachment issue. I cannot imagine leaving him to go work 5 days a week for a minute as you know. No way! Some days though I just feel like the old me ended when Nick was born and here I am with a totally different life. It is weird. I think it will be hard for me when school starts up in a month. I miss the fulfillment of teaching and haven't been able to find part-time positions @ college level.
Oatmeal Flax Whole Wheat Pancakes (w/ blueberries and almond butter)
Some pancakes from today - it is a mix that you can store, adapted from King Arthur
3.5 cups oats
1/2 c flaxseed
4.5 c flour
3 tbs sugar
2 tbs baking powder
1 tbs salt
1 tbs baking soda
1/2 c smart balance oil
1/2 c hemp oil
(or just use 1 cup oil of your choice)
Put all ingredients except oil in the mixer and mix together. Turn on the mixer and drizzle the oil in while the mixer is running. Squeeze a clump in your hand. If it sticks together, it is just right. if it does not, continue to add 1 tbsp oil at a time until it sticks.
Store in the fridge indefinitely. To use, add 1 egg, 1/2 c milk and 1/2 c yogurt (1 c milk also works) and cinnamon to taste. I also added blueberries to this one and almond butter!
