My Mother’s Day Vacation

My husband is off to Vegas to spend time with his Mother and Aunt for Mother’s Day and Our Anniversary. It sort of sucks but it would be wrong to put myself through pain in a hotel room and have to deal with continuous lights and noise right now. I will spend Mother’s Day with my beautiful babies:


I don’t know if I will get the Mary Poppins motivation this time. I seem to always fill with good intentions but can’t seem to follow through.

Perhaps it will be a good wknd to get some writing done on my book, since I am alone with quiet.

Bad Packing, Bad Gluten

My frozen food arrived from The Gluten Free Mall (internet) but it was packed in Dry-Ice which was ridiculous.  I opened the bag and a piece of ice fell out which I had to move real quick because the animals were coming over to check it out and I almost frost bit my finger.  I’ve had frozen food delivered before and those blue ice packs work just fine.  Anyway, it’s great to have yummy Chicken Dumplings and Egg Rolls again.

My Chiropractor keeps telling me that if you even touch Gluten it can get in your system and you can get sick..not cross-contamination like eating it, but touching it with your hands/skin.  This is something that just sounds quite extreme to me and worth more research.   I think anything, that dangerous should be off the market if so many people get sick from it.

So, we were just informed that my husband will not be able to get off work for our 3 night vacation we were planning (good thing we did not plan a cruise) so we will only have two nights somewhere instead.  Originally, we were going to go to Vegas but I got to thinking about the drive and how much time we would have there and then I thought about Primm Valley, Nevada.  They actually have rides and shopping as well as gambling and I’ve never been there.  It looks like they have some good deals too.  So, I think we will try for that.  Plus, it is about a 45 minute distance closer to our house.
