9 2009 at 5 30 pm I love this post You have the cutest ideas and I smiled when I read all the other comments I don t have any notebooks currently but I should I seem to start notebooks but not finish them Greta Mom Living Healthy s last post Menu Plan Monday Mary R says November 9 2009 at 5 36 pm I have about three notebooks going at once I love them so much I try to keep the content separate for all of them one for getting my feelings out one for ideas of fun things I want to do restaurants to try books to read etc and one for inspirations I have during the day to capture that idea immediately lately I ve found that I just happen to grab whatever notebook is nearby so I have a sprinkling of everything all over the place It s a bit untidy but feels more natural somehow and I so enjoy reading over them after a little time has passed Mary R s last post How Has Travel Shaped You keishua says November 9 2009 at 5 37 pm LOL I am glad to know I am not the only person with a notebook love I can spend hours looking at them and I have many of them I use them for journalism drawing church poems whatever I love simple covers or very cushy covers There has to be a perfect cover paper relationship Currently I am in this graphical line phase I am using plain black notebooks A small moleskin and a bigger no name My journal is a brown suede number It does take me a while to finish them but I do mostly keishua s last post Noun Music Debbie Cheaper by the Bakers Dozen says November 9 2009 at 6 50 pm If I was to keep a journal of every time I ate chocolate I would need one of those fat 5 subject spiral notebooks But I do love the idea When my mom died several years ago I was especially sad when I realized that I did not really know many of the small details of her life that made her the woman she was What movie could she watch over and over again Did she have a favorite sweater Did she dust or vacuum first Paper or plastic One of the reasons I started blogging was so my children would know I have a fetish for beautiful paper napkins that the only fountain Coke I ll drink is from Chick Fil A and that I own 21 white shirts I think journals like you re suggesting will be a double treasure Once for us and once for those who read them after us I feel like I need to apologize in advance in case you end up going to my blog You ll notice I linked to you And if you re really observant you ll notice that I had a bad attitude the day I wrote it Nothing personal You were just the scapegoat Can I blame it on the fact that I have 11 children and too much homework Debbie Cheaper by the Bakers Dozen s last post At least someone has blog time Sandra Gonzales says November 11 2009 at 8 12 am Not nice Zom says November 9 2009 at 8 22 pm Well this couldn t

  • Eating Less, and Gaining More - Small Notebook
    dairy I am lactose intolerant I also stay away from beef and I recently stopped drinking soda and coffee as much as possible I would love to give up sugar but I m not sure that is possible I am trying to give up eating so many carbs too Ugh It s hard However when I do it I feel soooo much better and I have so much more energy You are right about just sitting around the table that is so important I make things for my family that they love and I usually have something different but we are all still sitting around the table talking about our day and eating together Michelle Traudt s last post Envisioning Greater Things hailey says November 2 2009 at 5 09 pm what a way to show love i know it will go a long long way hailey s last post Hopscotch Amy F says November 2 2009 at 6 42 pm what a wonderful post Thanks for sharing those thoughts Heather says November 2 2009 at 8 20 pm I had to give up those same foods while breastfeeding too It was hard at first but actually it wasn t hard because I knew I was doing it for my baby It helped him some but actually we later found out he was sensitive to many other foods too Like carrots green beans beef oranges etc The good thing about this was I lost tons of weight and looked and felt great It s more difficult to stop eating all the bad stuff when you really don t have a good reason to do it mrs e says November 2 2009 at 8 22 pm I remember a teacher from Africa who was part of a teaching exchange telling us that breaking and sharing bread and engaging in conversation together was truest form of friendship and love for our fellow man I have thought of those words many times and your post reminds me of them again mrs e s last post Ah November Alisha says November 2 2009 at 9 48 pm ugh i just had to give up dairy for the new babe too i never realized how present it was in our diet Holger says November 3 2009 at 12 04 am I can perfectly see what you mean with turning this situation of special nutritional needs into a family experience However some things you don t have to give up There s latose free milk and even though I have very limited experience with it in a breat feeding context it works very well for us Rachel says November 3 2009 at 7 29 am for us it s not a lactose issue it s the casein which is a protein in milk Holger says November 4 2009 at 4 10 am then there is no substitute you re right its boils down to a more basic questions why do we even eat dairy products Men is the only mammal consuming other mammals milk and consuming milk way beyong the childhood stages Juggling Motherhood says November 3 2009 at 3 50 am My parents have soda or fizzy as I call it not really a kiwi term but more a me term hehe whenever we have dinner at their place and I m sure I have sugar cravings for a few days after that I m so thankful I love water cheaper and healther gotta love that Juggling Motherhood s last post Socks socks socks cont Mandi Organizing Your Way says November 3 2009 at 5 49 am My little ones have all had dairy intolerances as well and although I ve given up dairy 3 times before it is still hard this time around I think the part I miss the most is enjoying favorite meals with my husband and kids since it doesn t seem fair to restrict their dairy consumption as well I need to do better at planning an alternative for myself because I ve skipped more than one dinner at the table because I didn t have anything ready to distract me from the main meal Mandi Organizing Your Way s last post Preparing for Thanksgiving Thinking Through Your Needs Hez says November 3 2009 at 6 42 am I gave up dairy and eggs after my body in no uncertain terms told me that it was hving trouble digesting those foods Hard Nah The torture I endured when I ate them was harder Carmella says November 3 2009 at 11 42 am Sometimes the best lessons come through some kind of loss of what may feel like loss though we d often times rather NOT have to experience that Thanks for the lovely post and great perspective Carmella s last post Photos in the Woods Sally Parrott Ashbrook says November 3 2009 at 2 30 pm Amen Juice says November 3 2009 at 2 58 pm I ve struggled with sensitivities myself and thankfully seem to have outgrown them I hope this is a short season for you Juice s last post I Could Never Have Predicted This angelvalerie says November 3 2009 at 5 03 pm I love this post
