new protection

This is one of those entries you should NOT read if you are a guy. So, that said, I tried a new type of maxi. For quite a while, I've been using kotex overnights. This month, I tried a free sample of always infinity overnight. Same protection, lighter, more comfortable. I really like them. When I went to buy more, I saw that Always has a stronger pad! So in addition to the infinities for daytime, I bought Some extra long super overnights. I had 0 leeks this month! Normally, I throw away 3-5 pair of undies a month and this month, I got to keep the whole package! I'm soo stoked! lol I know, its a weird thing to get excited about, but I have gone my whole life without adiquit protection for my heavy cycles. FINALLY having something heavy enough totally rocks!

My idol picks

So far, my picks are::
lil Rounds!! Her story is the whole tornado thing, but who cares about stories when she can sing like THAT? I was in awe!
The oil rig worker!! I believe his name was Michael Sarver. I got chills!

game and good company

I watched a UT game tonight with my sons. Made me miss my Dad and brothers. Was such a close game I had to release the breath I had been holding when it was all over. TEXAS kicked bottom. On Christmas, I called my brothers and while talking to them, realized I had not talked to them in a couple of years. That's way weird for me. I love my brothers. How did we fall out of touch that badly? When I'm over this bug altogether, I'll invote them over. My house isn't much, but its home and I've been learning how to cook. I also have fingernails again. Last few weeks, I've been forcing myself not to bite them. It's really hard! I'm reading the doomspell trilogy by Cliff mcNish. It's a really good book. I got it for Billy for christmas and borrowed it as soon as he was done reading it. I am sooo glad he's finally taking an interest in reading. With as much trouble as he had learning to read and as much as he used to hate it, its a relief to finally be able to share books with him.
Other than that, we've just been renovating our house and working and looking for another job. It would be nice to pull our heads out of the water again. :)

Good news: only the occasional migraine lately and usually associated with being a woman. One was food, but we quickly ided the culprit (recipe below for non migraine sufferers)

It's a classic: Chicken Ittaliano. Fill pan with ittalian dressing. Put in chicken. Let sit in over 2 hours. Put in over at 325ish and cook 15 minutes per pound. It's soo delish...ALMOST worth the 3 day migraine it gave me.
