  1. Thanks for sharing! I work until 8pm and really do not like eating so late, I am going to find these bars and caring a couple with me to work! This could be the beginning of a wonderful relationship!!! lol:jump_jack
  2. You look awesome! What an inspiration you are to us!
  3. This is so correct! I shared this with my 2 sons and hubby, they just looked at me with a blank stare.
  4. Alright, someone is reading my mind! I was thinking of how much I love the shamrock shake, but wouldn't get it this year as I don't want to waste my points! Thanks so much for the recipe! I am going to try it this week!
  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for these recipes! I love good tasting and easy to make desserts and other food items! I am going to make the cherry chocolate Angelfood cake this weekend!!
  6. A woman, renewing her driver's license at the County Clerk's office was asked by the woman recorder to state her occupation. She hesitated, uncertain how to classify herself. "What I mean is," explained the recorder, "do you have a job or are you just a...?" "Of course I have a job," snapped the woman. "I'm a Mom." "We don't list 'Mom' as an occupation, "housewife covers it," said the recorder emphatically. I forgot all about her story until one day..I found myself in the same situation, this time at our own Town Hall. The Clerk was obviously a career woman, poised, efficient and possessed of a high sounding title like, "Official Interrogator" or "Town Registrar." "What is your occupation?" she probed. What made me say it? I do not know. The words simply popped out. "I'm a Research Associate in the field of Child Development and Human Relations." The clerk paused, ball-point pen frozen in midair and looked up as though she had not heard right. I repeated the title slowly emphasizing the most significant words. "I'm a Research Associate in the field of Child Development and Human Relations." Then I stared with wonder as my pronouncement was written in bold, black ink on the official questionnaire. "Might I ask," said the clerk with new interest, "just what you do in your field?" Coolly, without any trace of fluster in my voice, I heard myself reply, "I have a continuing program of research, (what mother doesn't) in the laboratory and in the field, (normally I would have said indoors and out.) I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already have four credits (all daughters). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities, (any mother care to disagree?) and I often work 14 hours a day, (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers and the rewards are more of a satisfaction rather than just money." There was an increasing note of respect in the clerk's voice as she completed the form, stood up and personally ushered me to the door. As I drove into our driveway, buoyed up by my glamorous new career, I was greeted by my lab assistants -- ages 13, 7, and 3. Upstairs I could hear our new experimental model, (a 6 month old baby) in the child development program, testing out a new vocal pattern. I felt I had scored a beat on bureaucracy! And I had gone on the official records as someone more distinguished and indispensable to mankind than "just another Mom." Motherhood! What a glorious career! Especially when there's a title on the door. Does this make grandmothers "Senior Research associates in the field of Child Development and Human Relations" and great grandmothers Executive Senior Research Associates"? I think so!!! I also think it makes Aunts "Associate Research Assistants. May your troubles be less, your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door!

    That sounds yummy with the Cream soda! I like using the Diet A&W Root Beer for the standard Float, or course I use the FF ice cream in vanilla unless I can get my hands on the french vanilla...yum!
  12. CONGRATS BARB!!!! I needed to read this post! Thank you for taking the time to write it all down!!! I started then stumbled, now I am back on track. I am going to come back to read this post often as encouragement, I also look forward to hearing more from you in the future as you get closer to goal!
  13. I began using splenda years before you could get it in the states (God bless my family in Canada for supplying me). Of course I did have a period of time I was not taking good care of myself and gained a bundle of weight, but I am now doing something about it and using splenda!! I do have a question for you though, do you drink water? Did you know that they chlorinate the water? They do. I worked for a water company and found that they all chlorinate the water. So, even if you don't drink your water from the tap, everytime you wash your hands or shower/bathe you are absorbing chlorine. Thought you might like to know.
