    raising animals-we have whitetail deer, labs, cats, parrot, chickens, and turkeys
  1. My brother in law works there! He and my sister live in one of the dorms- he runs the dorm at night and is the activities director and does PE classses. He's awesome and so is the whole place!
  2. I would recommend the podcast Primal Potential by Elizabeth Benton. She delves into the psychology of eating/food choices etc and talks about changing our language and thoughts about food. She also does classes and other things and has a website primalpotenital yuo can check out.
  3. I have to stay strict Paleo for digestive reasons. I cook dinners differently for my very picky family. I rotate making freezer/simple meals for one and a more detailed meal for the other. So, if I want to try a new more involved or time intensive recipe for myself- they get something simple like hot dogs and mac and cheese. Or I make things that can be eaten by all of us- like I grill some chicken and I use Paleo bbq sauce and cauli-rice and they get regular sauce and white rice. I am finding a balance so that I dont feel like I am cooking two involved dinners every night. I batch cook paleo pancakes for myself and regular pancakes for them and we all do simple lunches.
  4. I love Juli Bauer's but my all time fave is Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Meals Made Simple. Best cookbook I own. I have loved everything I have made and they are simple and easy and have all turned out well!!
  5. I live in south Texas where its expensive to live per square foot and there are no basements. Most people use their garages for storage or an extended living space/mud room/home gym. Almost everyone in my neighborhood uses the garage door as their entry and exit door also. So I park in the driveway, hit the garage door button and go in the garage. I have never parked in it and won't even if there was a storm or whatever. But then again I drive a piece of crap and don't care if it gets damaged :lol:
  6. I had the same problem with Prime shipping. Call or chat with customer service and complain EVERYTIME. Each time I got one free month of Prime and after calling 6 times in a row on late shipments, they magically started coming on time. I argue with them that they are running a scam and false advertising shipping time. Its a game they play.
  7. the Office. I'll probably watch it 100 times all the way through in my life. I LOVE it
  8. Mine is freedom. Freedom from debt, freedom from food issues, freedom from stress. freedom to say no, I put the word up on my mirror and write it in my planner. Every decision I make, I ask myself if its taking me toward my goal.
  9. Mine is the exact same way. I'm 38. Went to the doc a bunch of times for this- they don't seem concerned and only offer Mirena or an ablation.
  10. My sisters best friend and her family were there. In the terminal :( Thankfully they got out to the tarmac and were then transported to a fire station and then to a safe place and hope to get to fly home soon. She was also in the same building as the shooter at Purdue in 2014. This world just sucks.
  11. moved from IL to south Texas with a lab, a 12 year old cat and a parrot. 17 hour ride. They all did fine. We put the cat in a carrier but left it open and she came out a few times but slept most of the way.
  12. I wouldn't go- I have the exact same issue right now ( I have asthma though) going on 3 weeks. I had 3 doc appts and she said my lungs are fine, the pain is probably from inflammation and to take Ibprofen.

  14. Home sick from work so I saw every single thing about it on the news all day for days. Watched the plane hit the second tower. Had family in NY and an uncle who worked near the towers- we didn't hear from him for hours and hours- that part was real scary.
  15. I quit coffee cold turkey after drinking it for over 20 years by replacing it with this tea. I love the vanilla nut. Tastes just like coffee to me.
