Seven Quick Takes Volume 30

— 1 —

If I did Quick Takes every day, I would have been blogging for a month now. Woo! Not very impressive.

My lovely aunt and uncle drew our names for the Christmas gift exchange and gave us two big boxes of food. Most of it was stuff I wouldn’t usually buy because it is packaged, processed, etc., but I hate to see it go to waste, so we have eaten most of it.


Not really the box they gave us

What we won’t eat: canned vegetables.
What we usually don’t eat but found a use for: Italian sandwich bread (French toast)
What I’m secretly happy to have even though it is terrible for me (and Brett won’t eat it): Marshmallow crème and processed peanut butter

Out of that food-gift came a nice sized chunk of ham, a city-ham end, I guess. I decided to make it on a weekday. That was a bad choice. At 6:00, it was still 90 degrees F inside. At 6:15 I was crying and apologizing, and we finally ate at 6:30. That means that we ate quickly and rushed out without cleaning up the kitchen or ourselves. I strolled in to Bible study 20 minutes late as if I had no idea. I’m not sure if it is better to act that way when you’re late. I certainly didn’t want to draw attention to myself by apologizing.

(Mild TMI alert) I found out that giving up wheat (and maybe all grains) might be helpful for my reproductive/cycle issues. It seems like a great idea, because I don’t like living with the symptoms I have, and I would like to get pregnant some day soon, but life without bread and baked goods sounds scary. I am planning on trying it. I just have to psych myself up… and learn what to eat. Maybe Lent would be a good time to start.

Brett’s interview seems to have gone well. They said they would follow up next week. I hope he gets it. Please keep praying!

I’m not so sure about Turbo Fire. It’s a little too jumpy for me. I’d like to be able to walk or jog. I just can’t do it in the winter because if I’m home, it’s dark out.

Has anyone else read The Hunger Games and then felt jumpy around the house at night? I walked into my basement and I seriously had a thought of “Is there someone behind that box?” Thank goodness I’m not actually being forced to fight for my life.

Have a great weekend and GOD BLESS YOU!

  1. I’ve heard mixed things about going gluten free with PCOS. I feel like I owe it to myself to try it, but like you, it’s very daunting! I do like your idea of trying ot over lent. If I do, that would give me plenty of time between now and then to figure out recipes/meal plans so I don’t freak out last minute. Hmmm…. you’ve given me something to think about! Let me know if you end up doing it!

    • I’ll let you know. I don’t have PCOS, it’s *probably* endometriosis… we don’t know yet. That’s what I was thinking too, about waiting until Lent: It gives me time to figure out recipes and meal plans. My hardest plan is going to be breakfast, which is a no-brainer for me now (oatmeal).
