Does anyone else find emailing their husbands/children a rather useful way to capture their attention?
Perhaps it is the excitement of receiving mail, perhaps it is because in an effort to communicate well I have to be succinct. Whatever the reason I find it a useful medium as I remember quick thoughts to share or minor details throughout the day, and a great way to capture the attention of our teens.
All of our children, with the exception of one have been rather independent. Jem at only 2 though, takes it to ridiculous lengths; he insists on dressing himself, uncliping himself from his carseat (which he can’t manage so we play an elaborate pretend game) he has to exit the van without any help, carry his own plate, pour his own food and milk, get his own water, peel his own banana, etc. He also must help with everything; setting the table, carrying the washing basket, moving furniture etc.
I’ve just finished reading Gluten Free Girl, Shauna Ahern is soo passionate. She received freedom by being diagnosed as having Celiac’s Disease, a whole new world was opened to her which she embraced. Her recipes are so achievable and scrumptious. We aren’t Celiac’s although do wonder if we may have a Gluten Sensitivity.
As we may be looking at a need go wheat or gluten free I’ve been contemplating grain mills. The most economical choice would be to purchase an attachment for our juicer. A decision to make further along in our dietary change.
I cut all the children’s hair yesterday. As I looked at the pile of hair I contemplated on the varied hues within one family; blondie brown, dark brown, auburn, blond, and snowy white.
I was tested for gestational diabetes this week. No one mentioned anything about fasting beforehand, so I blithely ate a handful of sultanas and almonds prior to waking in. My levels prior to glucose and after were too high. Therefore this morning I had to undergo a two hour test, fasting from last night. My results – normal.
Meanwhile I researched and spoke with my dear friend Margaret whose son has Type 1 Diabetes. She assured my that dried fruit would spike me and almonds, being a slow release would keep my levels way up. So why don’t they save our time and theirs and instruct us not to eat the first time around!?
