I'm so tired

I totally know that I am slacking in the posting department. And I just have no clue at all how working parents of more than two children get anything done. Seriously.

Amanda and I chatted on the phone tonight about aspartame. One of the many random things we chat about. Every day. Which is why I love her so. But maybe, just maybe, my Diet Dr. Pepper addiction has something to do with my CRASH AND BURN at 5PM every day? The aspartame and caffeine?

(include in addiction: vanilla Coke Zero, cherry Diet Pepsi, and Pepsi Max.)

Anywho, will try to cut back on diet soda.

I'm working like a fiend. But DO NOT MISS working on the floor. I really thought that I would. But I am diggin' working in the kitchen with the guys. I can curse freely. I can drag a conversation straight into the gutter and not offend. I can burp aloud.

Delicate flower, I am not. So I'm right at home back there.

OK. Will try to post more.

You would be SO proud of us...we've taken a HUGE step toward the organic world and cut (or course) partially hydrogenated oils, but also high-fructose corn syrup as well. We try to avoid aspartime too (but I do have a diet coke every now and again). I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the way you feel.

Hugs.
It'll get easier, somehow, soon.
And at least you happy..busy happy :)
It's probably the *gag* Pepsi. I drink a trillion cans of Coke Zero a day and I'm fine!
Who said that?

yeah, i was going to tell you about the aspartame experiment website as well - not for the weak stomached.

anyway, i've been staying away from it (artificial sweeteners and caffeine) for a few years now. i can't tell a difference either way (in energy level or weight). i just don't think it's good for me, so i don't drink it. plus i'm nursing, etc.

just my $.02. :)
