lol, that too.

I was raised in a large Italian on one side, Irish on the other family. You could say they may attend church here and there.

I haven't been to church in a dogs age but they ain't lying when they say it sticks with you forever. I was brainwashed damnit!!!

Good morning....

Looking in the pantry this morning for trashy but yummy cereal. Best I could come up with was Special K with strawberries...and even that was the generic version. It was a treat compared to the shredded wheat or grape nuts that I usually have. But is sure wasn't Cap'n Crunch or Lucky Charms...sigh.

What's on everyone's agenda today?

FR - strawberry ice cream sounds yummy!

Grape Nut Flakes was my favorite cereal as a kid. (I was the only one out of my siblings that didn't like sugar cereal.) I don't like it now as an adult, too soggy.

I haven't tried acutaly Grape Nuts for a while. They were too hard. But I should try it again. It might be a nice change from Smart Start Strong Heart Antioxidants, which actually tastes very good.

All this talk about Lucky Charms is giving me a craving. I might pick up a box this week. LOL

I'm off to work shortly.....and will work on stuff I've been delaying all week (so that I have something to actually do today)....I do much better when I'm busy than when I'm not (like most people I'd imagine)....

I actually don't mind grocery shopping...

Planning my Easter menu....DD is coming home and will bring one or two friends....one is "kind of" a vegetarian..DD says she is more just picky and doesn't generally eat meat but sometimes will....After a couple of phone calls with DD so that the child has more to eat than green bean cassarole and dinner rolls.... it turns out ham is something she will eat - if there is mustard available...oookay.

Good morning all!

2 years ago my cousin's 16 year-old son suffered a devastating brain injury in a car accident. He has been back and forth between ICU and rehab for 2 years. He has had countless episodes of pneumonia, and now is in renal failure. They have decided not to treat him, but to finally let him be in peace. I just can't imagine what it must be like to be in their shoes. Parenting is not for sissies.

Oh Zimbo....I am so sorry to hear that. How awful that must be. My thoughts go out to your family....

Indeed - parenting is not for sissies.
