Update on Me

I have another "thing" to add to the list of things about my body that are changing with age - possibly allergic reactions to food that have come out of no where.

Twice now, immediately after eating popcorn my face flushed and was radiating heat for HOURS. Episode one was from popcorn popped at a local candy store store in the city. Episode two was from popcorn at a movie theater.  I seem to be okay with corn itself so maybe it's what the popcorn was popped in?

Now add almonds to the list. The last two mornings I've had cheerios for breakfast - no problem there. But this morning I had a handful of almonds about an hour after eating the cereal and within a few minutes - flushed hot face. What the ???  Almonds are not new to my diet and I've been eating them pretty consistently so why all of a sudden?!?

Am I crazy?  Guess it's time for a doctor's appointment. Meanwhile, I'll be avoiding popcorn (so odd) and almonds.

Facebook Vacation

Oh, Internet ... I can't take any more of this. November 9th can't come soon enough.  Regardless of what "side" you are on this election year, it's terrible. SO terrible.  The number of people I've seen fighting with friends and family and strangers is overwhelming. It's stupid and pointless.  Name one time anyone changed their opinion after you had a political argument with them. You can't because it has never happened.

The media is making it worse. It's like high school on steroids.  Go ahead, attack Trump for all his womanizing ways. Bill is no different. WHO CARES. Seriously. It doesn't matter. It's all a smoke screen to distract the public from the important issues. You dig deep enough into anyone's background and you will find questionable things they have done. They are rich and they are politicians so that equals sketchy in my book. Not one of them - ever - has shown to be anything different.

My two cents:

I'm worried about this country and who is the best person to actually create change. I think Hilary would put her own daughter in jail to save her own neck and will be an Obama 2.0 and that scares the shit out of me.  I think Trump is a lose cannon and flies by the seat of his pants and that scares the shit out of me.

I'm leaning toward Trump ONLY because he wants to close our borders and I think that is one of our greatest threats right now. I'm tired of hearing from the other side about how it's not an issue - it is.  You want to come to this country, come legally. Pay taxes. Contribute. No more free rides!

Twelve

So my Boo turned twelve years old this week. It's say to say he's officially a tween, given  how the school year is going so far.  He's doing fine, I guess, but adjusting to Middle School (7th Grade) and having 7 teachers has been a bit rough.  He's lost his lunchbox, accidentally threw out lunch money, lost pencils and pens by the dozens already to the point I'm considering duct-taping them to his arm, forgot to bring home homework, forgot to complete a Spanish assignment, and the list goes on.  I'm utterly floored he hasn't lost his gym clothes yet!  Boys, right?  God I hope so lol

In honor of his computer obsession, I made this Control-Alt-Delete Birthday Cake:



He laughed when he saw it!

Happy Birthday, Boo!
