But, did you listen to it? It crackles! Just like a campfire! Come on...! It doesn't get better than that!

Of course, then we'll all be roasting marshmallows over our stoves, wondering where that darn craving is coming from!

SERIOUSLY?! How does one burn boiled carrots?

I'll tell you how. You only put a bit of water in the pot so they will cook faster and while waiting jump on the forum (aka your addiction, obession..you choose) to check on Gracie, C, Rowan etc and get pulled into the abyss and totally forget your very clean carrots cooking away until you smell your pot burning!!!!!!!!!

I hope while you are laughing at me you are also very impressed I am eating carrots with my lunch!

Crohnsinct-
If the carrots got burned can they still be considered clean?

You city folks and cooking veggies.
Me and my clan we run out to the garden over yonder and pull our carrots out and eat them by the time we get back home. No mess for me to clean up!

Crohnsinct, I am blaming you! In my quest to search the forum to find out the story behind the burnt carrots, I burned my sugar cookies!

Farmwife, I like them raw too, but it's a no go for Ryan on the raw stuff. Definitely not clean, but the best is carrots with butter and brown sugar! (copper carrots, yum!)

Yeah well the worst part is I was cleaning the peeler after lunch and managed to slice my finger. WHO does that?

Hubby says all the restaurants and take out places in town are going under since I started cooking and they must have little voodoo dolls of me or are praying to the culinary gods to get me to stop this nonsense!!! I am tempted!


SUGAR COOKIES???!!!! made with whole wheat flour and sucanat I am sure....

Having an 18 and 19 year old, I've been through the baby stage, toddler, elementary, pre-teen and the 14-16 year old stages... but, sometimes, in some ways I feel like NOW is more demanding than ever!

The independence and desire to do normal things (clubs/bars, dates, staying over at friends' homes who are 'new' friends, alcohol, driving, living or travelling on their own, etc.) and the accompanying worries (ie, Stephen's best friend was just robbed and beaten up last week when walking home from a concert, spent the last week in the hospital and had to have a number of surgeries! )

The stresses and worries (theirs and, then, ours) about schools, jobs, their futures.

And it seems I have more medical concerns now then I ever had - of course Stephen's crohns but even my daughter seems to be having more random issues...

Ugghh... I keep hearing it gets easier but am not seeing it! The 'work' is easier but I seem to worry about them more now than ever before! (Farmwife, you may be drinking pop right now but, give it a few more years... forget the dairy farm, you'll be making and drinking your own grappa like a pro! )

Tesscorm, I agree completely on the difficulty of having teens. I feel like I was alot less worried about J obtaining her drivers license and taking to the road than C.

The stresses are greater to me too in alot of respects and the ones you have mentioned are definitely at the top of my list. I've been able to let go and allow J more independence and freedoms than I have C. But on top of having CD, it is like the crazy and unexplained always land on him. Plus, being a boy I swear his feelings of invincibility far out weigh any I experienced with J. I mean, c'mon using a large plastic container as a sled pulled behind a golf cart downhill!!!! And when you call him on it he's like "what it's really durable plastic, they drop food from airplanes in these containers, they are that sturdy"...sheesh where does common sense go in the teenage years!!! And I'm going to give him permission to get behind the wheel of a vehichle...insanity!

That is so funny!! So typically 'boy'!! Although, I think because my daughter's always been very athletic and is now doing competitive tai kwon do, she's the one with that 'invincibility' factor which worries me even more!! As strong/athletic as she is, she'd be no match for any guy who really wants to do harm... but, feeling invincible, I worry that she doesn't 'worry'. Ugghh!

Sad to say but I think what happened to Stephen's friend really opened his eyes to what can happen! All of a sudden, he realized 'if it could happen to him, it can happen to me'! (Thank god his friend will be okay but he now needs physio and has had to leave school and postpone his course until January!)

That is so sad that something like that happened, I preach to J about awareness of her surroundings and enviroment but like you said her size compared to an attacker would make for no match. I'm glad he is healing well and will be okay.

Oh my gosh that poor boy and his poor family! I am so hope he is going to be O.K. enotionally as well as physically.

Geez! I remember the things my gal pals and I used to do in college. It is amazing we made it out alive. Scary what goes through a kids head!

As for C and the sledding....sounds like fun to me too! I love boys! I wanted three boys...got three girls...when I delivered the first and they said it's a girl I said, "what am I supposed to do with a girl"...hahaha the doc said "pretty much the same thing you do with a boy"...maybe that is why I have three self declared tom boys. Someone is seriously laughing at me up there!

Oh dear Clash and other parents.

You know I'm telling the truth because we did them too.
When I have time I'll have to share how we won the down hill slope winter mattress race.
That's right. Off the face of a mountain.
Ya BABY! So stupid.
Now I still here popping pain pills to help me function.

You're right, Crohnsinct... when I think back to when we were young, I'm not sure how we made it! I don't know if it was actually safer years ago or if, as parents, we're just so much more aware of everything???

And, so you've got the best of both worlds - the adventures of tomboys and the worries of girls! X 3!!! No wonder you need those mommy supplements!

Oh yeah if it comes back ten fold I'm in serious trouble, since as a teenager I fell out of a car window as the car was moving(only about 15 mph) while yelling at the kids in the car behind me(the driver pop the clutch and I lost my balance, I remember nothing of this my last memory was my friend and I deciding to skip school that day)!!! I was in ICU for 3 weeks and a coma for 2 weeks!!! Everyone says that is what accounts for my slight unhingedness today! Needless to say my kids have gotten the don't hang out of car windows, ride in back of pickup, stand up through sunroofs lecture a dozen times!!!

No way, finger in the blender?!? Yes, the days of my youth are filled with miss steps vacant of rational thought or common sense!! I am truly horrified by my actions at this point and my poor parents bore the brunt of worry and frustration for most of my teenage/college years. When this incident occurred I was staying with family friends as my parents were on a trip overseas, poor things that was their last trip out of country, I think I did them in on worldly travel.

Hmmm...maybe I should give that safety lecture one more time this evening!

Wow, those are some good stories of our misspent youth. Seems to me that I was quite lucky to get away with the stuff I did without serious injury!
I remember a friend and I following a car (filled with cute guys) all the way into downtown Johannesburg (scary place ) and ending up in some random club. Made it out in one piece thankfully!
I'm afraid the scare factor was all too real in good old SA to really get up to any major mischief.

Well while Clash's daughter was texting about a great pair of boots (did you get them for her btw) Gaby texted me to tell me she is sick. She said they think just a bad cold but doc isn't at the school again till Tuesday. Quick strep test came back negative. O has infusion on Monday and we pass by the exit for her school. She asked me to bring her something to help her feel better. I am dying! I want to run up there and get my baby girl and nurse her back to health right now. I love that she is being all independent and staying at school but it is killing me. Maybe another glass of wine will help.....
