Hi Karen,Just a lot of stuff in general have got me stressed! I am homeschooling, which I KNOW is my own choice, but it is quite stressful!!! Also, being a pastor's wife is NOT easy!!!  And a few other things as well...no marital problems! No worries there! LOL! My parents are doing ok. They were just down here for Thanksgiving. My dad seems to be doing a whole lot better, but my mom said he was doing worse when he got here!!! Guess it was cuz he wasn't keeping busy, & then he just sits around & THINKS!!! NOT GOOD!!! Anyhow, he'll just be sitting there talking about something, & then all-of-a-sudden, outta the clear blue, he'll get teary-eyed. It's just been so hard on him cuz they were soooooo close & saw each other all the time! I'm sure he feels like one of his best friends has died, which, Aaron was, indeed, one of his best friends!!! [:-'(] He'll be alright though...it's just gonna take time! Thanks for asking though! I had a really hard time w/ it lately...about 2 months ago, it seemed to just surface anew for me, & I struggled w/ depression & LOTS of sad days for about 4 weeks. It was tough, but I am better now.I still don't understand why he was taken from us so sudden & so young, but I know I never will understand it either!!! Hope you're feeling better today Karen! Hope everybody else is doing ok too! Where has everybody been lately???

Hi ladies!Loretta: Kids are doing great........hope you are too!
Lo: Your sons are cutie pies!! lol..One of them looks about my age and I love his little mohawk 'do in one of the pictures!I have another question for you wonderful ladies: Has anyone here tryed to make homemade falafel or hummus? When I went to Europe, i was really surprised at how food and nutrition is handled over there ie., cheese in france was kept outside on a counter because it is considered to be "alive" (but it only lasts a few days) and meat in rome is almost never processed so it must be eaten within a few hours of purchase...It kind of made me double think about the amount of hormones and crap that gets put into our meats..and it sort of freaked me out! So ive been taking small steps to consume smaller amounts of meats and poultry and substitute it with vegtables. Many of the vegeterians that I know eat falafel and hummus almost daily but i think its boxed. Id like to try and make it myself. Im guessing chickpeas is the staple...any other ideas??
