little bit of everything

Wow! The weather has been soooooo nice here lately...mid 70's and sunny! It is suppose to get a little chilly this week, which is normal for Central Oregon in May...soon, though, it will be blue skies and sunshine ever single day!! I can hardly wait...I love it when I can throw on a sun dress and a pair of flip flops and head out on my cruiser bike to work or play!

In other news, I believe that the hubby is on board with the whole vegetarian idea. Actually, he just came up to me one day and was like "I don't wanna eat meat anymore.". It was really odd! He still wants to eat fish, which is fine by me because I don't really eat too much fish anyway so on those nights I will just eat the salad and sides! So, we are gonna give the vegetarian-thing a whirl. I don't wanna put any pressure or stress on us about it. I am going to make a conscience effort to not eat meat but I won't get upset or anything if we aren't toooooo strict with ourselves.

To me, eating is fun...cooking is fun. I like to eat healthy, mostly organic food. I steer clear of most processed foods and hardly ever eat fried foods. I mean, I am not a saint by any means. Like I said, eating is fun to me so if I am at a party or back home in the Mississippi Delta, I indulge! I will say that for the most part though I eat pretty well and I feel good about most of the choices I make so I will not be too hard on myself if I give in here and there with treats and now, meat!

Anyway, in other news...summer is almost here which means I really need to get my you-know-what in gear about the whole "new career thing"! I am really leaning towards dental assisting. I have done A LOT of research and I just think this will be a good fit for me. So, I am starting to talk to dentists in the area about a few things....I have a few questions about school, etc. and also would like to see about interning or shadowing at an office. SO CRAZY!

I always thought I would be a grant writer...my passion in college. My degree is in Social Sciences and my favorite classes were always the grant writing ones. I love researching and developing ideas! Anyway, that is a hard job to land...not too many of them out there!

I probably won't ever go full-out vegetarian...but I do have leanings in that direction! Ever since I started eating "whole foods," I can tell that I feel better and have more energy. I hate processed foods!

That really is exactly how I feel! Better food just makes your body feel better and really that is all I want! I don't wanna stress out about food everytime we go out to eat...turkey sandwiches may just be my downfall with the whole vegetarian thing!
