We go through a lot of cherry tomatoes- my son LOVES them so we buy a lot and use those on our salads rather than large tomatoes. This is perfect for us. Thanks!

If she's friend enough to let you stay at her place, she's friend enough to be honest about her bathroom. I'd be casual, empathetic, and offer an out to blame it on someone else. "Thanks again for letting me stay with you. That really was so kind. I did notice while I was there that your bathroom seemed to have a lot of mold. I know how hard that can be to clean/treat! Is that something your landlord is working on?"

Wow at all the judgmental people in this post. People who get a tattoo are doing it for you so you can stop fretting about what you think about them.

It's all about the prep work. Before I leave for a long trip I clean my house, eat all the perishables, pay my bills, water my plants, run the garbage disposal, freeze 1 breakfast meal and one dinner, take out the trash, adjust the thermostat and unplug all that can be unplugged.

I'm fortunate enough to have a teenage sister who I can pay a bit to clean up any morning-of mess or do anything I didn't have time to do as well.

Chocolate chips. We had some in a trail mix that spilled all over the car and they melted in the sun. Ugh.

I'm a Paleo eater and it is more of a lifestyle than a diet.

It helped me identify allergies I have from wheat gluten and helped eliminate the excess xeno-estrogens in my system. I'm happier and healthier than I've ever been- not just on a weight loss level but also because my brain and my emotions feel cleaner and sharper.

THAT BEING SAID- what you eat or do not eat is none of my business. I'm not your food police and you're not mine. This is just another "I have an opinion about your business" only with a food twist and it has to stop on an individual level before it'll stop on a larger one.

Agreed. I've LOVE to find a high backed (affordable!) modern couch.

Wish I could find one that's also a recliner. Finding a stylish, patterned recliner has been such an effort.

I used to meal plan every week and it really helped. Now though I just grab what's in season at the farmer's market and pick meats to match that. Works just as well.
