Various and Sundry

Eating, like, four tablespoons of chocolate frosting and then a big scoop of peanut butter cup ice cream isn't conducive to losing weight. Is it?

RE battery disposal. I have looked into it a little bit and have determined that regular batteries (like the Coppertops, or a simple Energizer) are not recyclable. I can explain why I thought they were, but I won't bother.

However, cell phone batteries, button batteries, lithium (e.g. camera) batteries, rechargeable batteries, car batteries: they can all be recycled. And PLEASE DO. Some of them contain heavy metals that are toxic... we don't want that kind of stuff leaching into groundwater from your landfill, now do we? Find out if your batteries can be recycled by clicking here (scroll down to the bottom for an easy-to-read chart) or call 1-800-8BATTERY. Then find out where you can recycle them.

And just for the record, I don't like you all calling me out on that because it sorta takes away the whole feeling of getting the last word. THANKYOUVERYMUCH!

Casual mention:
I had windows open in my house all day long. SWEEEEEEEET.

Currently on my mind:
Motherhood and how, though I don't beat my kids, I surely have some areas that need improvement. Does improvment have two e's? So, I am going to ask you all if you have read any good books about mothering OR parenting in general that you'd like to recommend.

And now, I am going to bed.

The book that changed the way I parent: The Bonds That Make Us Free, by C. Terry Warner. It's terrific. I know there are others I've liked, but this is the one I recommend the most.

I feel so much better about the batteries. :) I guess I could have googled that myself.

Mmmmm! Chocolate frosting and peanut butter ice cream....! Heaven! You're on the weight loss plan I'm currently on. I can't seem to stop eating since Steven left. I must be stressed.

Parenting books? ha ha ha! Nope, can't say that I've read any lately.

I like your diet. It reminds me of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.


We sat outside last night... Gorgeous!

The Bible... the rest I just pray about - a lot! For both the children AND myself.

i read a book called 'liberated parents liberated child' that i liked very much. it deals more specifically about parenting emotionally healthy kids.

I'm going to read Grace Based Parenting by Tim Kimmel. I loved his Little House on the Freeway book, and this one has been on my TBR list for a while. I need to read it. I also have some "issues" that I wish would go away.

As for the diet, if it insured weight loss, I would be one skinny skinny gal.
