Day 29 - Parmesan Garlic Turtle Chex Mix

I'm cranky. I'm tired and my stomach feels like a balloon that needs to pop, yet I cannot stop myself from finishing a bag of Stacy's Parmesan Garlic & Herb Pita Chips. And I'm thinking about the bag of Turtle Chex Mix sitting in the pantry (2 of my most favorite snacks and grouchy comfort foods). I think it was very appropriate that Evan chose 'Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, no Good, Very Bad Day' to read at bedtime. Emily, does Aubrey read this book? Might explain the 16 part of this blog!

Speaking of Evan, he is doing better and enjoyed a day at home with Grandma taking it easy. I did not worry about him in the least because I knew he was in good hands. But when I got home, he immediately burst into tears and said "I had a hard time taking a nap because you weren't here and I missed you." I realized after a few minutes that this is the first time in a looong time that we have left him with someone else when he was sick, since he rarely gets sick. That helped the guilt. A little. My heart did not entirely break into 2, I think it is still connected at the very bottom. He'll stay home again tomorrow and then probably back to daycare on Thursday, even if just for part of a day.

Seriously can't stop eating the pita chips and am very grateful Costco quit selling them (and the Turtle Chex Mix).

So I attempted to randomly choose today's picture, and it didn't really work. But I did randomly choose a folder and thankfully there were only about 10 pictures in there, and this is one of my favorites.

(although I was about 6 months pregnant with Eric at the time)


  1. Glad things are on the mend...and I feel your pain about the munching. I took a bag of Chex Mix to school today so that I wouldn't eat it!!

  2. Are you pregnant? Odd combination of foods...

    I am surprised your heart isn't shattered into 700 pieces on the floor! How do they do that without meaning to?!?!?

    Aunt Erica got that book for Aubrey for Christmas and I read it to her for the first time all the way through 2 nights ago and TOTALLY thought of that :) Nice catch :)

  3. I doubt it and I hope not for the sake of the glass(es) of wine I've been drinking the past couple of nights :-)

    Technically I haven't broken out the chex mix yet...but it's calling me.

  4. How is it possible that you were 6 months pregnant in that picture? By the time I was 6 months - my face was F-A-T.
    And I am super happy that Tommy doesn't have that book, yet. He keeps making me read "Snuggle Puppy" AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN. Thanks, EM

  5. Lydia beat me to the punch, because I think I looked that good when I was....oh, 18?

    And I may be too late for this, but


    You can't parmesan turtle ANYthing. I'm sure at least two cultures have that rule.
