    It’s the mulch lifestyle for you, Kristy! And for me, too. But I’ve already adjusted, so it seems pretty good from this end. Of course, I don’t have to drink sludge twice a day… On the up sida, I found a brand of emulsified fish oil that tastes like a lemon drop smoothie. No kidding, it is goooooood. Let me know if you want details. XO

      Details, girl, details! I like lemon. And I laughed about the sludge thing. I’ve just been sucking it down with a straw, only the other night I guess I did something wrong because that last little bit…was REALLY sludge. I don’t think I’ve ever opened a bottle of water that fast in my life. All I could think of was that icky green stuff floating on top of a swamp was now sitting on my tongue.

      Shh about the mulch lifestyle though. I’m still getting used to the powdered greens…I’ll worry about adding the Compost Toasties at a later date. 🙂

        Compost Toasties–eeks!

        Lemon Drop flavored OmegAvail by Designs for Health. I buy it from my chiro/nutrionist. You could eat it like dessert. In fact, coming out of the refrigerator, a couple teaspoons of this tastes just like dessert.
        More info here:

        Definitely one source of dense nutrition that will NOT leave dust (or paste or sludge) on your tongue.

    Got a good laugh over your clips today! Love the parody!
    I feel the same way about going to the pool in the winter. Such a challenge. 🙂

    Great job finishing with chapter 6! It sounds like great progress!

      Hi, Heather. I love Tim Hawkins (and spend entirely too much time on YouTube watching his videos!). I’m glad I’m not the only one who isn’t into freezing after a trip to the pool in the winter. Kim doesn’t like it either.

      And thanks! I’m very pleased with the progress, though I’d hoped to have all 19 chapters done by February first. Probably NOT going to happen, but it shouldn’t be too much longer. And then it will be time for the second trip through… 🙂

    Good work on the editing you did get done. Sometimes your mind just needs a break, so maybe that’s what’s going on these last few days?

    I keep wanting to take swimming lessons, but having to go out in the cold after being in the pool always stops me, so I really understand your problem. Hope you find a good way around it!

      Thanks, Kim. I think I did need a break, just didn’t expect to need it quite so soon. 🙂

      As far as the swimming… There is no good way around it. I just have to ‘man up’ like my mom suggested. It’s just too bad the engine in the van doesn’t stay warm while I’m in the aquatic center. It’s making me cold just thinking about it.

    I sure did. I need to pace myself more from now on. Whether that happens or not is another story though. I’ve never been good at spreading the work out (for anything) over time. I dive in head first and determine to ‘get ‘er done.’ (hope my daughter reads this…she HATES that saying, lol)

    Having read about all the things you do, I’m guessing you are a little burned out, too…in addition to being more sleep deprived than I am. I would kick you in the butt, but someone would first have to kick me to get me going enough to actually do it. I will check around for a volunteer though. I want to read about Damon!!! Get busy, girl!!! 🙂

    Did you burn yourself out after the editing? I have been putzing my way through drafting my Row post. It took way longer than it should have. 🙁 Why is that? No particular reason. Maybe the same reason you didn’t do anything after you edited the 5 chapters. I plan to do better. Kick me in the butt will you? Now I need to go write about Damon.
