Hi chicks, and Happy Tuesday. It's a beautiful sunny day here and I am trying to get at least two loads of wash hung out this morning. I've got to alter DD's dance costumes for her dress rehearsal tomorrow, and still need to finish that dang bridesmaid's dress for my niece. I am determined to get that off my to-do list by the end of the week. And then of course there's work, sigh. At least I think I will be at home all week, although I was warned I may get called in for a brief late in the week.
I had a clean Ph1 day yesterday, and made a yummy savory zucchini ricotta cheesecake. DH loved it, but I think I'll experiment a bit more - I'd prefer it a little creamier. I'll post the recipe when I get it right. Tonight is deep dish spaghetti squash Italian pie.

We had a lovely Mother's Day. We went hiking at Cunningham Falls and the kids had a blast climbing on the rocks under the waterfall and I got some good pix. Very relaxing!
Heather, I hung a string in my office and I'm stringing a bead for each clean day as motivation. I'm a very visual person and I like to see progress. One day at a time!
Hey Jen, I would have to get rid of those oreos. Yesterday was my day 1 (again). I always dread day 3, but at least I know what's coming.
Hi rikki, good luck getting through that list today!
Hello, Steph, I am in the same boat, yesterday was not a great day all round.
That's great Pearl! I love being detoxed from sugar, I feel like superwoman around sweets when I'm in the groove. It's a great feeling (which I haven't felt for a while now).
cottage, springtime is salad time! And strawberry time... And asparagus time... And rhubarb time... I love the spring!
I'll see you on facebook later Cyndi. I must have missed it but what are your vacation plans? birds and camping?
Thanks for the reassurance Ruth, and have a great digging, dogging day! I can't see that banner either, by the way.

Family crap is getting me down, it's amazing the ripples a divorce can send through the family dynamic. As it turns out, I am the only one everyone feels comfortable talking to, including future ex-SIL, brother, parents, grandmother, so I get the calls every time someone needs to vent or worry, and I spend too much energy trying to not to end up in the middle. I am not a blabbermouth by any means, but I hope they don't all expect me to keep track of what lies we are supposed to be telling and to whom!
Life's a journey, not a destination.
It's easier to stay on plan than to get back on plan.
