New Week

So yesterday we were invited over to the Evans house for dinner and to congratulate Holly and Tyler... (FINALLY)!  None the less, I was talking to Cheryl and they are looking for someone to work in their office.  Long story short, I gave Tom my resume this time and will phone them tonight to find out what is going to happen.  The reason for the phone call to them tonight is... this morning the job that I interviewed for downtown called me and asked if I could come in for a second interview tomorrow.  HECK YES!!!  But, it is only part time and is downtown.  We'll see how it all goes.  I dropped Shane off at school at 1 and went out and dropped AVON books in a community one of my ladies recommended.  We'll see how it goes.  I ordered WAY too many books and need to get rid of them anyways.  I also went and dropped books to my ladies.  I am trying to shy away from dropping them off at church and what not.  Today has been a good day.  I am headed up to do some more avon.  What a day!

Back to Calgary with a new diet :(

So I am still trying to recover from my trip to Utah. It was pretty draining and really emotional (enough said there). I have been sleeping quite a bit. While I was down there I went to an herbalist. It was really neat all of the things that she was able to teach me. I was really impressed with her knowledge and just how screwed up my body really is. None the less, I am taking a bunch of supplements and also on 2 diets that allow me to have just about NOTHING :( I am on the Epstein-Barr, and Candida/Yeast cleansing diets. Basically this is what they say I can't have: no food high in fats: red meats (pork is a red meat); deep-fried foods such as chips, french fries, donuts; thick fatty icing made from shortening or lard; high-fat dairy food like ice cream, cheese, and whole milk; Ranch, French, Blue Cheese-type dressings (use canola or olive oil, vinegar and spices); chocolate. No potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers (hot peppers are Ok) and eggplant. No foods with bakers yeast such as breads, donuts, and pastries. No foods that are aged which iclude cheese, wines, liquors, sour cream, blue cheese-type dressings, etc. No refined sugars. Substitute raw honey, pure maple syrup, blackstrap molasses, or pineapple juice. No foods that are "moldy" or "fungus-y"; mushrooms, peanuts, peanut butter, leftovers more than 2 days old. No fruits that have a skin, high in fiber content, and or are very sweet to the taste such as apples, grapes, blueberries, pears, watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe, etc. Citrus fruits and pineapple are acceptable if you do no test allergic to them. I can also have grapefruit. Does ANYONE feel bad for me??!!! I DO!!! It is pretty tough to find foods that fit under this criteria. :( I will let you know what my total weight loss is when I am done. The intent of these diets is NOT weight loss and that is NOT the reason that I am on them. My body just reacts to these things :( Anyways, Shane and I are happy to be home together and are headed to the grocery store for my special diets.

Conference Weekend

So... I LOVE GENERAL CONFERENCE!!!  Having moved to Canada I thought that we would have to make the trip to the Stake Center to watch it.  I was completely wrong!  Having a computer genius husband, and the internet, and modern technology, we participated on the internet.  So we watched some serious conference.  After conference on Saturday, we fed the missionaries.  The funny part about this was that we were supposed to feed them Sunday and we screwed up... anyways, the food was good and they got a ride to priesthood out of it.  I went with Ali to the LDS bookstore to the womens night there.  It was fun, Shane had told me not to buy anything useless, and since I have no job as of Tuesday, I didn't get anything.  I did however really want the Jessie Clark Funk cd, but it was 22 dollars and I was NOT paying that kind of money.  I leave for Utah and can get it way cheaper down there.  I got home and threw some bags together full of AVON brochures and off to the neighbors house I went... dropping bags.  I can't believe how many neighbors that I have.  I am going to make up for that in my next order and get them all a book.  Anyways, that wrapped up Saturday.  So today we woke up and I threw some blueberry muffins in the oven for Shane and headed in to watch conference.  After the first session I got really bored and irritated and we decided we should go for a walk.  We ended up taking the recycling over to the bins and then saw the GIANT lake in our back alley.  We decided to dig a trench and let the river of water flow out of it.  The best part was when the second session of Sunday conference was over, Shane went out to take pictures to see what had happened.  It was cool because the lake was gone.  Our landlady went out and got stuck in our trench!!!  HA HA HA HA HA!!  We boobey trapped her!  JK, but she has put us through alot so it was kinda funny.  She called AMA (it's like AAA for those in the US of A).  It was great some guys just pushed her out.  What a waste of a call and time.  Oh well, it serves her right for going out on Sunday to shop.  Good times.  We had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner YUMM YUMM, my favourite!  It was great! Life is good!  I am married to the most wonderful man in the world!  Utah in 2 days!  I can't wait!
