Today was our first day of school! Woo hoo! We had a crazy, busy summer with graduating one child and marrying off another. We took a little extended break the last three weeks to recharge and gear up for another fantastic school year. It is so hard to beli...

Ketogenic - Becoming My Norm
I have been on a full Ketogenic diet for a week now. I am not sure I can call my version of the diet truly Ketogenic. I am not sure my carb levels are low enough to actually be kicking me into ketosis. And I am not going to be one that checks my ketosis lev...

Why I am Thinking of a Ketogenic Diet
I am just not one who has ever gotten on a bandwagon when it comes to diet. I try to have a good balance of foods and nutrients and have relied on some of the science behind  Trim Healthy Mama . It has treated me pretty well in relation to keeping my weight...

Wednesday Hodgepodge
It's hard to believe but next week's Hodgepodge will find us in the month of September. What's one thing you want, need, or hope to do still before summer officially ends? I honestly can't think of a thing. Summer is my least favorite season of the year so ...

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!
Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat. The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the gluco...

Story
Introduction
I am a 40ish year old wife and mom who recently moved back to her childhood hometown to simplify her life. I homeschool my two younger children, have one who is a junior in high school, and one who just graduated and is moving on to cosmetology school. I spend my days teaching, blogging, reading, gardening, and getting in an occasional power nap in between cleaning, cooking, and taking care of our four dogs. I am a homebody extraordinaire who loves nothing better than a comfy pair of pjs and an evening glass of wine, or a cup of hot green tea if it's cold.
