Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Well I am back on the wagon again :) with hubby's health scare (insulin resistance diabetes and high cholesterol) we are both doing Atkins diet. I started last Thurs. a.m. and have lost almost 5 lbs already! Hubby's lost 4. So far so good, thanks Sharon for letting me back on board ;) Anyone have any low-carb hints/suggestions or recipes? I'd love to hear from you! Good luck everyone! xoxo melzie

Hi Melzie, so sorry to hear of the health problems. Losing extra weight is always a good idea, and my oh my, do I know that *VBS* And mostly fail at losing it. But I keep trying.
Hope you and yours are wintering well down there in Missouri. Take care, hugs, Finn

Congrats on the weight loss! When I did Atkins after I had my son, I ate hamburger patties, eggs, cheddar cheese, and beef jerky. And thats about it. I truly admire you, because I didn't last four days. :)

Hi there, first visit! That stupid wagon is so hard to keep up with, isn't it?!? :) ha... Got no tips, unfortunately, but I'm in a very similar boat, being spring and trying to get healthy and all. Hey your page says you've had 19,999 visitors... does that mean I'm number 20,000 I wonder? Do I get a balloon? LOL
