THE FLUFFY FRIENDLY DIET and a call from Gabe.

There is yet another diet book in bookstores now. Its called 'The Bonus Years Diet'.  This isn't your standard 'get thin quick' book, no exercise regiments or recipes on 'how to cook appetite suppressing fat-free water in 20 minutes or less'.  This is a special diet.  Its a diet that allegedly can lengthen your life by 4 to 6 years.  In other words, you won't actually lose weight, you gain years.

The secret to this age enhancing diet is 7 very special foods:  fruits, vegetables, dark chocolate, red wine, nuts, fish and garlic.  What this diet does is to lessen your risk of  heart disease, stroke, and kidney problems.  By lessen we're talking 14 to 34%.  Live longer just by feasting on fruit, vegetables, garlic, CHOCOLATE!, fish, nuts and washing it all down with a glass of red wine... Yeah!  I can live with that.  In fact, I can live 4 to 6 years longer with that! Throw in some anti oxidant rich coffee with nutty hazelnut creamer and you have the perfect diet.

Here's to many MANY years of happy fluffiness!

Gabe called yesterday.  He's going to be a daddy again.  Do you know what that means?  That means that I'm going to be a 'grandma' again!  Woo Hoo!  No, its not the same girl (although his ex is still very much a part of his life), but I have spoken to her a couple of times and she sounds like a really wonderful young woman.  She already has 2 children from a previous relationship, and those little ones have adopted Gabe as a sort of 2nd father already.  I'm still waiting to meet Little Zachary, but I can't help but feel sooooooooo excited about this new little one.  Woo Hoo Hoo!

His deployment date is getting closer.  I try not to think of that, but he's ready to go out and get it behind him so he can finally get down to business of being a daddy.  (and maybe 'husband?'   hint hint Gabe!)

Congratulations at becoming a grandma.

My mom is a grandma now. My nephew has a weird name for her, and only one. I can't remember what it was though.

LOL @ "fat free water"
