Where Did It Go?

Has it really been a month since I last posted?  That holiday hangover obviously lasted a lot longer than expected.

I'm coming to the realization that with my current workload, not to mention theatre and, well, life, I probably am not going to be posting that often for the foreseeable future.  One of the things I considered was just hanging it up and not blogging anymore, but I realized that I would miss certain things like Foodie Penpals and the Cake Slice group, not to mention all the terrific feedback I've received over the past eighteen months.

So.  I'm going to try to be better about this.  It may be twice a month, but it certainly won't be every week.  I am also going to post photos of the other things I'm working on, such as the two shows I directed in the past four months.

And on to Foodie Penpals....

I received a box this month from Kyndra at Peace Love and Low Carb.  I'm excited to have my first penpal from the West Coast (just outside Seattle), and also to have lots of low-carb and low-calorie goodies in the first month of the new year.  While I think I managed to escape holiday weight gain, I still have about five pounds to lose from where I was at prior to gaining my thyroid-disease-related weight.

As a total aside, one of my pet peeves: When I was diagnosed in 2009, lots of people said "Oh, you get to go on thyroid medication and the weight will just fall off!  Lucky you!  I want to be diagnosed with it so I can go on Synthroid."  Uh, no it doesn't and no you don't.  End of rant.

But I digress, and back to the box:  it contained a delicious salsa, protein bars, dark chocolate, supplements and other goodies for a health January.  I apologize for the horrendous photo, but I was on my way out the door to catch a plane to St. Louis to see my parents and David snapped it with his iPhone.

That is bacon-flavored dental floss you see sitting on top
of the book.  It gave me a laugh.

Thanks Kyndra for the terrific healthy goodies!  If you are interested in participating in Foodie Penpals, go here.  Back soon with a great bundt cake recipe (definitely not low carb) and Golden Pond photos.
