Live Real. Eat Real.


It’s what happens when you’re making other plans, according to John Lennon.

Several things have conspired to delay my planned post on the cost, sustainability and practicality of a Real Food Diet – now The Official Designation For How I Eat – so I’m thinking Friday (tomorrow you get Tuna Casserole.  Or Rabbit in Mustard Sauce.  I’m not sure yet, and am open to any and all suggestions).

Things Conspiring Against Me:

Menopausal Brain Fuzz.  *sigh*

I am transitioning out of a position in our company that I have held for 8 years.  Yes, you can congratulate me – I never enjoyed it, and was never very good at it.  The person taking over the job is FAR more suited to it than I could ever be.  I could not be happier about this.

I am still trying to decide if I want to remain an “official” employee in our company and take over a new product/service we are offering, or if I want to contract myself for the job so I can pursue other side jobs, as well.  There are a lot of pros and cons to both sides, and a lot of things to take into consideration, so we’ll see.

I am trying to decide if I want to be killed by my husband spend $195 for a 4-week, online “photography for food bloggers” course by the Perfect Picture School of Photography.  It’s tempting…very, very tempting.

I am in the process of implementing a new feature here that will be quite beneficial for my readers.  Trust me, you’ll be the first to know when it is finished.

This college thing with The Young One.  All of the other kids spared us this by either not attending college, taking care of themselves or having another parent handle it all.  I had no idea how much it would consume not only my son, who is stressed to the max by his senior year in high school, but me as well.

Beloved is planning not one, not two, not three, but FOUR raised bed gardens in our back yard – he wants to move away from a CSA for the 2014 season (we’ve already committed ourselves this year).  Construction has begun, and my Home Depot credit card is already sending up little tendrils of smoke.

I know…my life is so exciting, isn’t it? I bet all you young’uns out there just can’t wait for middle age.

Anyhoo, that’s why I have no post today about the cost, sustainability and practicality of a Real Food Diet.  I’m still unsure about tomorrow’s recipe, so let me know what you’d like to see:  Tuna Casserole, or Rabbit in Mustard Sauce?

See you tomorrow!
