I have had a few questions about our Tooth Healing Diet, so I decided to write a catch-up post clarifying some things and adding in some information that I sorta kinda… forgot. A friend was concerned that we weren’t eating whole grains anymore. We are still eating grains, whole grains even. What we are doing is transitioning from whole grains processed by factories that give little or no thought to the importance of preparation in this particular food group. Instead, I will b
First Snow Day
First Snow… The other week we had a pretty good snowfall and I decided to brave the wintry wonderland with Evangeline for the very first time. It only happened once. All she wanted to do when we got outside was eat the snow! I couldn’t get her to stop! Her face was soo red by the time we went back in. Poor thing… Look Mom! I’m ready to go! Should I be able to see in this thing? I can hold it in my hand!! It’s sooo cold but I can’t stop eating! Ok, I’m ready… let’s go b
So Much to Say...
So little time. Isn’t that how it always is? It’s very cold here… I don’t appreciate it too much. I have been lethargic for two days; I could lay in bed all day long and still be tired. I don’t appreciate that either. But some weeks are just like that I suppose. I have a lot I could talk about, there’s so much going on. I am working on Evie’s basic homeschool outline for the next two years, and I’m reading lots of children’s books to preview them for her. I realized las
Ecological Breastfeeding: Part V
This is my last official post in the Ecological Breastfeeding Series, although I will finish it all up with a Q&A Session. Start at Part I if you haven't read the rest of the series yet. We have two more standards to discuss today and these, very much like my last post, are closely related. As always I will discuss what these standards mean, and give you an overview of how it looks in our house, along with some commentary and bunny trails along the way. Ready? Let’s get to
Wait... What did you say?
So I wrote a post. And then WordPress meanly erased my hard work… so I have been depressed about it and haven’t been able to go back to that post yet. You know when you lose something you worked so hard to write and then it somehow just disappears, of course at no fault of your own, but regardless it is so depressing to think of the hundreds of letters that had poured out of your soul never to come back again… Yeah. So I’ve been away from blogging for a few days. I am sti
Boo Hoo Moo Moo
Have you ever felt like this? Good… I mean, misery loves company right? I had TWO SENTENCES left to finish on my latest blog post… and then WordPress very meanly pretended to save it and then didn’t and THEN logged me out of my account. Needless to say I have spent enough time blogging away into nothingness today… so perhaps you’ll get that new post tomorrow. Sorry folks, I’m disappointed too... *sniff*
Patricia Ann Mueller fell asleep in the Lord on January 8th of 2012. There are many things I would like to say about this dear Saint, in particular about her love for people and for me. As I was looking back at old pictures I found one from my bridal shower where Jake and I are standing with Grandma and Grandpa Mueller. It is a sweet memory I have. Living far away from home I wasn’t able to have a bridal shower with my side of the family, but Jake’s mom and sister put toget
Just so You Know...
Hi Everyone, I am sorry for the delay in posting. Jake’s grandmother fell asleep in the Lord last Sunday morning. We travelled to Missouri this week for the funeral and returned on Thursday. I have been trying to catch up on everything at the house so I haven’t had time to post yet. I think I will finally get my post up tomorrow so please bear with me. Thank you all for reading and for your patience. Love in Christ, Dalas
Baby Mueller #2
In deciding what to write about today I thought I would pick from one of my Old Years Resolutions and go into more detail, since I did promise that after all… and scrolling through I found my favorite one: Have A Baby!! So yup, this post is all about Baby Mueller #2. Yesterday I had my first prenatal appointment, and it went fabulously! When Jake and I were expecting our first, we talked extensively about care options. I knew I did NOT want a hospital birth; I wanted to avo
Why Whole Grains are Bad for You
A long… long time ago I posted about our new endeavor, the “tooth healing diet“. Well, I don’t think I called it that, but that’s what it is. We started, if you recall, with drinking lots of water. Now that we have a system in place for that, which we are loosely following… hmm… anyway now we are going to start on our next phase – grains. Grains have always been so confusing to me. They were on the bottom of the food pyramid… so that means we’re supposed to eat a lot of t
