First of all, I would like to say THANK YOU to all of my blogger friends for reading the letters to my children and giving me your support. It meant a whole lot :) I did make a decision to read the letters to my kids and of course they were horrified and defensive. lol But then after their initial shock that they aren't perfect angels (in their own minds), we did sit down and talk and I'm happy to say things have been much better these past few days. I'm seeing some action with them and that's a major start. :) I just had to kick some much needed MOM BUTT!! lol
I've also decided to go back to living my life as a vegetarian. It's a two fold reason....they do such scary things to our food these days from feeding cattle hormone growth induced corn to forcing chickens to grow to adulthood in a month and a half! I have chickens and I know it takes at least 4 months for them to reach adulthood. Beef recalls every other week, people dying from e-coli, it's not "if" you get cancer, it's "when". Anyway...I could go on and on but we all know what has happened to our food...it's all about big money and big corporations and they don't give a shit if we get sick or die from it, as long as we buy it. So I've decided to not give them one more penny of our hard earned money for their hormone induced processed "food".
And the other reason is...I just feel better. I feel healthier, thinner and I have a whole lot more energy. I'm not and never have been fanatical about it...in fact I rarely even talk about being vegetarian, but I just felt the need to this morning. lol
