    Keeping it Real

    Hannah was playing around with my camera yesterday and took a picture of me while I was feeding the little boy that I watch. She asked if I was going to post the picture on my blog. Initially I was thinking that there was no way b/c I had no make up on. Then, I reconsidered. I thought that this would make a good post for showing that make up is not always necessary, especially when hanging out at home.

    So, there you have it – no make up and hair was left to air dry. :) This is for Hannah. :)

    Anyone care to join me and share how you are “Keeping it Real”?

    There was an article that I read yesterday that really ruffled my feathers. The article, “New Ways to Just Say No to Dessert” was on the Reader’s Digest website. The author suggests using Celiac Disease, among other ailments, as an excuse for passing up dessert. I was appalled, to say the least. Having Celiac Disease and following the gluten-free diet is not to be taken lightly. Celiac Disease awareness is growing day to day, but using it as an excuse to avoid dessert for fear of offending the host/hostess is not only careless, but is an insult to those that have to follow the diet. Not to mention how confusing it could be. What if the main course of the meal consisted of pasta or bread? Then the host/hostess is thinking that pasta, bread or whatever was served is gluten-free, but dessert is not. GRRR!!! I have a suggestion – how about putting on your big girl panties or manning up and simply saying “No, thank you” or “Thanks, but I am too full to even consider eating that fabulous looking dessert” or even “Thank you, but I am trying to watch what I eat these days”. Rant over.
