So we have two winners for the ‘Next to Godliness’ soap! I used a random number generator and it spat out the number “2” who is Linda W.! So Linda I will contact you about your shipping address and what scent of soap you would like. Also from the facebook portion of this Linds M-W. was the only commentor on the facebook site, so congratulations!
Originally I was going to write all the numbers down on little pieces of paper and let foster baby girl pick one out at random. But then last week I was getting the mail with her and I let her “help” by giving her a piece of junk mail to hold. In 0.2 seconds flat she had that thing in her mouth and used her two little teeth to shred it. So I was just imaging how I would explain to DCS why my foster child was pooping pieces of paper with numbers written on them.
‘It was a contest you see…’
Yeah, so we went with the high tech internet solution of the random number generator.
Today also marked our first full week of Lent. Now I have to be honest, we did cheat once. Last night, Tuesday, we had a church event and they ALWAYS serve salad or a vegetable it seems, so I thought I would be ok. Nope. It was grilled cheese and taco soup. I was stuck and I was starving. So I ate a grilled cheese and tried to avoid the meat in the soup. Shame, shame, shame, I know. I’ll bring a back up option from here on out.
I actually haven’t found this whole vegan thing that hard. I don’t even miss bacon that much. Wait, no, I do. I love bacon. But in all honesty, as much as I wax poetic about it, we eat bacon maybe 5 times a year at most. I just like to talk about bacon and think about bacon. I think the hardest part for both of us is the dairy. We are cheese
B.V., before vegan, we ate meat about 3-4 times a week. Now we just have to plan more. You have to really think ahead, I feel, or you end up eating pasta or PB&J all the time.
And now for our first weigh in. I weighed in at 136.5 this week, down half a pound. Which could just as easily be water weight. Jacob weighed in at 247, down two pounds!
So far so good, only 5 1/2 more weeks left!
PS~stay tuned for an infertility update.
