So I called out company's emergency line this morning and it said that all the offices in CT are closed!!  Woohoo!!   Now I don't have to feel guilty for not going out and trying to see my patients.  Although I'm sure they will understand.  I will still take a ride to the office to hand in my time slips.  No one will be there, but they have a drop box.  I just want to do it now so I don't have to worry about it later.  The weather is still OK...they are talking about an increase in wind between 8-9.

Karen...I hope your MIL is safe.  They are talking about crazy storm surge, higher than we've ever seen!!  We are about 12 miles from the coast so we are fine, but we are supposed to get high winds.

Awww...sorry Lily is sick. I hope she feels better soon! Maybe she will rally tomorrow...Addison never stays sick for long. Where did you buy the glow sticks? They are so expensive from what I've seen. I found some at Big Lots for $.60 for a two pack so I bought a bunch...but with how crazy my kids get with them they won't last the week. I've seen people handing out the necklaces and bracelets like they were candy at Halloween though so I'm thinking there is a secret source of them that I am just not aware of...

I'm not doing Paleo 100%...allowing myself some cheats...so more like a cross between Paleo and South Beach. Like this morning I had one piece of while grain toast and at dinner I ate the crust of Addison's sourdough dinner bread. Oh, and I'm letting myself have dairy, of course!

Awww, sorry you are getting sick! I am trying to start working out too, even though this is the busiest time of the year. I downloaded 30 Day Shred and bought a mat and weights...wish me luck! I actually downloaded it about 6 weeks ago but DH had to reconfigure our electronic setup downstairs so we could play it, since one of our HDMI cables failed.

Speaking of 72 hour kits (we should have one, i woke up to an earthquake this morning), i told dh we should get mil a wind up radio, light, cel charger combo for xmas. she is keeping her cel phone off in case she looses power and can not charge it. we told her to call us once a day so we know everything is okay. i think i will order a couple of those radios...

We had the big halloween party last night. i was so much fun. i made all the decorations for our giant patio that we she with the neighbor. i was all candles, jars with lights and glowsticks... looked really cool. red beans and rice, brownies and pound cake from scratch on the menu, lots of friends and drinks. lily started getting sick on friday. i feel bad, but i doped her up with cough meds so she would have fun because i was not cancelling (she was not that bad). of course today she is much more sick (thanks to the bad mom) and now i have a sore throat and am run down, headachy, and exhausted... it is my payback i guess. she is staying home from school, but i have to go in because i have a huge week.

Sorry, I just checked. It's called Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo.
