And so as usual in the evening my body really wants to EAT. I spread my food out today so that every couple of hours I had something nutritious to eat. My last test was a few minutes ago when I thought I wanted some popcorn. Given the choice between... Continue reading

love love love . I am going to get some joint tape and hexagons. You make me want to shop every week for new goodies. I tried foil. I think the page still needs something but it's "okay" going back to it today to see if I can finish it out. :)
