Spot Here! Spot There! Look! Spots Everywhere!

No, I'm not talking about chicken pox or the like. Thankfully! I'm talking about pimples. What the crap!

I'm thirty years old and the last three months have been nutty with my skin. This morning I woke up with not one, but FIVE new pimples. I feel like I'm in high school again. Maybe I need a facial or something. I don't know. My chemistry has completely changed since I had Nathan. Bleah! I don't like it!

Yesterday was the first official day of Fall. Rachael, I know you are looking forward to it. You and your teas and mulled spice. :) Me, I dread it. I dislike the fading daylight and chilly temps. I do, however, enjoy pumpkins and Fall decor. Perhaps I'll get on that this weekend. PERHAPS! I'm kinda busy you know. :) Cleaning up puke!

Nathan, poor baby, has had acid reflux since he was born. Sydney had it also, but grew out of it after she'd had solid foods for a while. My Nathan, a very healthy eater, is still dealing with it. We've recently tried switching his formula. I hope Mom is right! :)

Today is Tuesday and it is my brother's b-day! Happy Birthday, Wes! :) In fact, we've got lots of b-days this month...

Jim (Brother) 11th
Grandpa Stick 13th
Hannah Banana 21st
Sam (Nephew) 22nd
Wes (Brother) 23th
Grandpa Don 24th

WOW! That is quite a lot, don't you think? Happy Birthday all!

October is an even busier month!

I'm thrilled! I got the list for my second produce delivery and I see acorn squash on the list. I've never cooked it. Have no idea what to do with it, but I'm looking forward to trying it.

I'm still trying to get past the organic bugs. Seriously, I cleaned the corn last night and buggies again. ICK! ICK! ICK! You would not have known I was raised on a farm given the way I was scrunching up my face last night. I contemplated pitching it, but then I realized I was being idiotic. After all, what do people on a farm do? WASH IT! So, I'm still getting used to it. I've learned that I should probably clean the produce the day it is delivered. I'm used to just pitching my produce into the drawer. I think it will just take a little prep. That will keep bugs outta my fridge and save me some time when I am cooking. Hey! You can take the girl out of the the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl...at least I don't think so. Ew! :)

Have a great day!

LOL maybe it is a autumn thing, I have the breakouts too. Yes, I WILL figure out how to cook Acorn squash this week! :)

I will tell the bugs to stay away. :)

Acorn squash is delicious baked with butter and brown sugar. Just cut the squash in half and take the seeds out. Then put in a generous portion of butter and brown sugar. Instead of baking, we usually put ours in the microvwave and steam it. Then put the butter and brown sugar on each individual serving.

Gabriel is still throwing up too, a lot. Some days are better than others but the last two days have been brutal and I've even had to change clothes due to complete coverage - ick. I feel for you.

Second, my skin went nuts about 5 years ago and it took about a year for things to calm down. I remember how distressing it was! I hope your spots clear up soon.

Hey Jess! I'm right there with you when it comes to the bugs!!! We participate in a CSA and have the same problems. It really grosses me out, even though this is our second year doing it...you would think I'd be used to it.

I actually did a post on my blog about acorn squash with a very general and simple recipe for acorn squash - http://centimentalone.blogspot.com/2008/09/take-chance-wednesday.html

take care!
