Sorry Fans...

I've been MIA the last few days -- it was that dreaded, "Holy Crap! I have so much stuff to do and no time to do it" moment that I had on the Friday before I went down to school.

Friday's Exercise Recap - Did the Shred, Level 2 as promised. Not all my kids were napping, so one toddled along and tried to do it with me. I was once again able to get through the whole thing, so that's a good sign.

Friday in my life recap - my Mother In Law was in the hospital. She'd had a bloody nose that just wouldn't quit, by the time I saw her, she was pale and weak and shaking and cold. The doctors don't know why or how and for whatever hair-brained reason, they decided NOT to do an X-ray or CAT scan. Stupid. The woman is complaining about stabbing pains in her skull and says she can feel her heartbeat in the nerves of her nose. That is not normal! So -- prayers are asked for and will be much appreciated.

Friday night - had to make some Tabouleh for school. I was to choose a simple, healthy, unique recipe which children would eat. Since we were visiting with the Inlaws, I didn't get home until about 1030 before I started sending the kids to bed and getting everything ready for school. By the time I started making the salad, it was closer to eleven, finished everything by 1130, then washing up -- yeah, it was about midnight when I finally got to bed.

For the people in my class that had asked, the book that I used, I'd bought in Saudi Arabia, but I was able to find a newer version of it at Amazon. I highly recommend this book, it is absolutely filled with delicious recipes from all over the Middle East/Mediterranean. There hasn't been one recipe that I've tried that I haven't enjoyed.

Then, my alarm rang at 530. I voted to sleep over exercise -- becuase I had a long drive ahead of me. 6 am I got up, got my stuff together and printed off as much stuff as I could before class. Left for school and had a fun ride down with my school-mate (and I didn't even miss the turnoff! Yay!!)

School went fabulous. I had a monster of an instructor last round, so I'm so glad to be back to a great instructor who makes learning a fun and enjoyable experience, rather than just brow beating you.

During class we were to share our recipes. 40 of us. 40 snacks to go around. I was SO FULL by the end of the day that I had to unbutton my slacks! I got home, hubby had dinner made and I couldn't even look at the food, let alone eat. It's now noon the next day, and I'm just starting to feel that I can eat again!

Because I was so full yesterday, i ended up not exercising at all. I kinda feel bad, but in another way, I'm just tired. Tired of it all...the exercise, the school, the kids...I just need a little break, and I'm using that day off of exercise as one. I'm currently waiting for my toddler to wind down enough to take a nap and then I'll be doing my Yoga Meltdown.

Anyhow -- no wit and humor for today....yet...I need to keep my mind on track to finish my readings and exam, need to keep on the straight course so that I can decided whether do to a Power Point or a Brochure for homework (and choose a topic)...perhaps after dinner tonight, I'll be in the mood. We'll have to see.

That's it, that's all folks!

Alhumdullilah. The mail has been so slow so I was worried.

Oh and you're welcome, just don't cook the recipe I made, lol.

Please comment, please. It makes me feel good, and well -- a woman just likes to feel good every now and then. I may not agree with your comment, it may even tick me off and make me want to delete it...but comment anyway and make my day.
