~ I have decided to become a vegetarian, which will happen about the first of the month, if not before.

~ I accidentally slept until 11:15 this morning, which conflicts with school as my last class ends at 11. Oops. In my defense, I could NOT fall asleep until almost 5 a.m., though I went to bed around 10:30 or so. Ugh, frustrating. Now I'm up and feel like I have an impending caffeine headache for waiting so long to get some in me. That's what I get for starting to drink coffee again. Grr.

~ Will be visiting mom today in the hospital. This is ending up a giant rigamarole which has left me quite grumpy. Maybe I need more caffeine. Everyone is all ready to go, there's a lot of walking involved, I still need to finish my breakfast, get my contacts in, put shoes on, deal with this AFRO. Ugh. Thankful to faetal for making it possible, though, I'm sure mom will appreciate it.

~ Mom is thinking about nixing the idea of the nursing home until she's better - because she misses her cat. I asked if she would get better if she went home, or if she would fall into the same routines. "Well, I could work really hard." .... "....." is all I really have to say to that.

~ Wow, I'm a Negative Nancy today, and for that, I apologize. A serious case of the Mondays, apparently.

aw! do it!
i've been a vegetarian since...5th grade?..and i think it's been the best decision of my life.
it's far healthier...veg. burgers are delicious (i highly recommend morningstar) and it's really not as hard as you may think it is. i've forgotten what real meat tastes like and i do not even miss it.
but after a while the questions get annoying..like the "OMG WHY?! CHICKEN IS SO GOOD!" is a hard one to deal with after the millionth time.
but i wish you luck, and if you need any tips (or delicious tofu stir fry recipes =] ) feel free to ask!

We all have negative times don't be sorry. I could bitch about my last 2 weeks!

Be careful on changing to a vegetarian some of those food products can be ew and if you don't know how to cook them OMG!

Like when I ate raw tofu my first time!

There are lots of wonderful sites with recipes for vegetarian as well. I am an Octo-Lacto Vegetarian also known as Ovo-Lacto)
Vegetarians. I eat no red meat, poultry, fish, or products that have ingredients which are animal-based such as Gelatine. They do eat organic cheese, yoghurt, milk, eggs, honey etc. They also don't wear leather or fur.

I am thinking about going vegan.

PETA also has a free booklet on how to go vegetarian. http://www.goveg.com/order.asp

If you need tips or want links just let me know.

Good luck with the veg stuff. We're pescetarian, so only fish, but even then it's only 1-2 nights a week.

The worst part is eating out. It's easy to find some non-meat things on menus, but do they have decent protein? Most likely not.

At some point last week (i forget exactly), I'd been vegetarian for 1 year. Good luck! It's a lot of fun! :)

I'm trying to eat healthier too! I bought some organic cabbage, chicken, and chicken broth, and I'll probably make some kind of soup or stew out of that tonight!

good luck with the vegi thing. I couldn't do it but I have been thinking more and more on the healthy side of things.
Are you giving up cheese? No meat isn't really the issue for me...lots of vegies cut out pruducts made by animals too(milk :) ) and no cheese is like saying, Liz stop breathing.

It's OK Mondays can do that to you.

I will wind up transitioning to a mostly vegan diet as well, but for a different reason, having to do with the upcoming visit to Dancing Rabbit. Essentially, I can either transition gradually or just surprise my digestive system for three weeks when I get to DR. Obviously, the latter seems to me to be a bad idea...
