Ya'll, my thoughts are a bit discombobulated at the mo'. I'm trying to siphon it all down into comprehesible drivel rather than ridiculous drivel.
You know how that goes, right?
ANYWAY! Want to hear about my NYR? (New Year's Resolutions, get the with the program!) No? Too bad.
So, I read these articles. (Sidenote: ANYONE who knows me knows that I read things, I commit them to gospel-truth and then my life is changed. Seriously, my poor grandmother begged me to STOP reading and START parenting when Henry was a baby. I can't help myself. The written word is truth to me. Like I said, it's crazy.)
The articles discussed two points that are basically the same: FOOD vs CRAP and EDIBLE vs FOOD.
The dealio is (the Reader's Digest versions for you all) is just because something is edible does NOT make it food.
Margarine= Edible crap.
Cheddar Cheese= FOOD
American Cheese= Edible crap.
So, for our New Year, we have banned ALL (okay, fine, MOST) EDIBLE CRAP from our home. It's going pretty well too.
The main downfall is (and will forever be, worlds without end, amen)
Don't judge me, I'm only human.
But, it's nice. We're cooking more, we're eating healthy, the boys are learning about healthy vs not so much vs occasional treat. I'm actually really enjoying it.
So, there ya go. Our NYR. The rest of them are things like, "Exercise" and "Get un-fat" and they are going okay as well. But I will not bore you with the details.
And in closing, an "ONLY IN VEGAS" tidbit for you:
Please, imagine a man, a woman and chimpanze coming out of Sam's Club with a cart full of bananas.
I am not making this up.
