Mindless Rambling Monday

~I went to the bookstore today. My favorite bookstore. A.K.A Heaven on Earth. The girls and I had a great time.
~I started reading a new book today that is wonderful and amazing. It's realling making me think.
~I have had a Grouchy Pouch today. This means that everything I put into my Pouch (my new, small stomach), did not please my pouch and it let me know that quite rudely. I didn't throw up, I've only thrown up twice since surgery, I'm lucky. But it kicked my butt!
~Good things are coming our way! No doubt about it!
~My sister is also losing weight. She's diabetic and is FINALLY no longer in denial, and following a diabetic diet. She's lost 26 lbs!
~T-bone is visiting my brother, his wife, and their son in Pensacola this week. He's having a great time!
~We had our first Meatless Monday. We decided that at least one night per week, we'll have a meat-free meal. Since Meatless Monday sounds so catchy, we chose Monday. Now the Princess has decided we should have Fruit Friday and eat only fruit, and Thirsty Thursday and only have drinks! Meatless Monday went very well and is definitely a tradition we'll keep. So if you have any good vegetarian recipes, send them my way!
~We had the most relaxing weekend. We did nothing. And we enjoyed every minute of it.
~We're getting a new foster Wednesday night. Pictures will be posted!
~I recently got props from THREE wonderful blogging friends. My Fantastic Firecracker & Sweet Beany shouted out, and Amazing Alison gave me an award! I will be sharing it soon, and I am also in the process of making an award of my own to pass out.
Wow! I feel special, I should disappear for a few days more often. :grin:

I may just steal your Meatless Monday idea... especially since I finally got my boy to eat salads. Good for your sister! I can't wait to see pix of your new foster. How's Suzie doing?

Melissa said...

I'll get back to you on some recipes. Is it really hot where you are? I have some great soup recipes that I don't use during the summer because it's like a million degrees where I am....

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Melissa, it's hotter than heck here!
Tara, please steal my idea! Suzie is doing wonderful, I need to post pics. She has put on weight and looks SO much healthier. She runs around now and I'm so proud of my girl!

Found your blog on all mediocre. Meatless Monday sounds pretty cool. I had to giggle at Princess's suggestions also! Oh and I wanted to say that its cool you raise funds for MOD. We have a family team. We didn't have any preemies but when my son was born a friend of mine gave birth at 24 weeks and the baby passed away. Anyway, nice to meet you!

I just found your blog from Word for the Wise. I actually have a blog that I should post to more often called Meatless Munchies and there are some recipes up there if you want to go check it out.

I'm off to peruse your blog further.

I love the Meatless Monday idea! And Fruit Fridays, while I'm thinking about it. How about Tofu Tuesdays? Okay. Maybe that's taking it too far!

It was good to hear from you Doll!

We have Brinner (breakfast for dinner) every Monday because everyone loves it and it's easy. But a meatless meal sounds like a good idea once a week. I'll have to try to work that into my weekly menu.
