It's a beautiful, warm (67) day today! A nice change from the cool weather we've been having...
Last night when Philip got home, Keenan and I had just about had enough of each other, (and Philip had the car with both strollers in it). When we got home we all went for a walk in the dark to "cool off", literally and figuratively. It was nice, and it was just what I needed. =)
Philip started a rotation at the hospital in Fort Walton Beach today. He had to be there at 6:15! Yuck! That made for an early start for us! =0/
Today we picked up Wendi (who we hadn't seen since New Year's Eve!) and went to the lunch at Jodi's house. Jodi made us Delicious omelets, and we had biscuits, fruit and dessert as well. I came home, fully intending to tackle the bathroom again, but was so exhausted, that I went to bed while Keenan napped. I think I'm going to have to start staying up late to work on it or something, because I really need to try and get the scraping done before the weekend, so Philip can fix the holes so it can be painted next week.
I'm doing a lot of thinking about healthy eating these days... My friend, Laura, down the street is part of an organic food co-op, that I'm thinking about joining. (She says it's actually cheaper to get produce that way than in the store, and it's better for you, so it seems like a smart deal). I'm also thinking about baking our own bread. It seems like it would be cheaper, And we'd be able to avoid all the extra preservatives, etc. that's in store bought bread.
High fructose corn syrup... lots of hype about that these days, and it seems to be in everything! I'm trying to decide whether we should totally try and avoid it, or if it's not a "killer" in moderation. An article by Mayo Clinic didn't seem to indicate that they thought it was "the worst thing you could put in the human body", like I heard a health nut on the radio say the other day. It seems like avoiding pop, and concentrated fruit juices, etc... is the best thing to do. Any thoughts or opinions on this whole healthy eating thing? It can get pretty overwhelming, and I've pretty much decided that I can't completely cut out Everything that's bad for me, or I would just be drinking water, so I guess I just have to "choose my battles".
