Okay, Okay

Bec did it. The Quarterly post. I suppose I could scrape up a post out of the noise from the daily ditherings...

First off, if I would've known kids were so much fun, I truly would have done it so much earlier. The older they get, the more I like them. And my children ARE the best children on the planet. Their newest addiction is Pokemon. I like Pokemon. In fact, I love Pokemon. Ryan is able to communicate fully with any children also interested in Pokemon, which gives him confidence. I could go on and on about feeding addictions to encourage communications, from Thomas the Tank Engine, to Star Wars, to Webkinz, to Pokemon. I have no idea what the next frenzy will be. If you know, please don't tell me.
Winter here has been rather story book - most of the snow is falling in the mountains. We have actually been getting out and enjoying ourselves with all that Colorado has to offer. We took the Ski Train one Sunday. The club car we were in offered breakfast, snacks, drinks and a light supper on the way home! Yo - that's my idea of a train ride!
Ken continues to travel 2 weeks out of every month. Which translates to hiring house cleaners again and also eating out more. Both of which are nice necessities when you single parent for long periods of time. Instead of cleaning, I'm organizing. Well, in theory. I'm actually reading more. But, I have plans to start organizing. And that counts for something. These things have to start in one's head and travel down to the hands.
On the health front, Ryan has been found to be infested with Candida, necessitating a diet change for the entire household. Gone are sugar, vinegar and yeasted food items, which comprises a huge amount of our former daily offerings. Barbeque sauce? GONE. Bread? Of course GONE. Today while the house cleaners are here, we are running a marathon of errands, one of which is to take the entire family trolling down the aisles of Whole Foods to select some new foods. This may not be a fun trip. Finding things without any sugar seems to be the biggest challenge. Ah, the love humans have for the sweet things.
Next post will have photos. Check back quarterly...

About time. Hmmmph.

And I say it's the quality that counts, sweetie.

Oh no, I sympathize on the diet thing. Happy hunting, is all I can say! My girl child is allergic to soy, most nuts, and we're beginning to fear she might have a gluten allergy as well. Just TRY finding gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free prepared crackers or breads or granola bars or anything like that. Go on, TRY. If you find any, let me know, because I'm having no luck at all.

Reading more - yep, that sounds very familiar!

Poor Ryan. I had to check for additives when A was a baby and holy heck, it nearly drove me insane. I can imagine it would be harder with kids who can actually ask for the things they want.

Photos of the storybook winter, please.

And as for this quarterly posting business - I'm not sure we can REALLY call ourselves bloggers. Maybe blog-flitterers would be more appropriate!!

Hey a post! I have a recipe for yeast-free bread in one of my Hagman cookbooks. It's also gluten-free. I'm not sure if it's sugar-free but I can dig it out if you like.

I think we have candida going on too. I have to call a Dan dr. Think I'll haul out my wallet now. LOL

I knew you were getting ready to post again!

Please don't wait another three months though, however, it seems like I'm heading in that direction myself.

I wondered how you were out in the Colorado wonderland!
