Can you tell the kids are out of school?

My kids are off the entire week of school. We call it winter break, but everyone knows it's because of Mardi Gras. I mean, come on ... an entire week! My kids are going stir-crazy already, although, my oldest daughter has been sick with fever and a cough. So she is happy right now to just lay around and watch TV. My younger one on the other hand is about to lose her mind. "Mommy, will you play with me?" So, we actually did a crafty thing today. We made sun catchers and played Disney's "Scene It."  I would show you a picture of the sun catchers, but I'm too lazy to walk downstairs and take a picture of her masterpiece. I'm actually upstairs in bed writing this blog and listening to Super Tuesday results and all the candidates' speeches. Wow, my man Huckabee pulled a fast one on everyone! Love him! But, I digress .... you can tell my kids are out of school because I watched another Oprah show today. I don't normally get to do this because I'm at work. And sometimes I like what she says and other times she gets on her "The Secret," new-age soap box and I turn her off. This show was an amazing show with Dr. Oz. Here's the things I learned today that will make me feel and look 10-20 years younger:

1. Eat 5 servings of foods rich in antioxidants every
 day. Best ones are - blueberries, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and broccoli.
2. Drink up to 4 c. of white or green tea every day.
3. Eat 25 g of fiber found in 100% whole grains foods every day.
4. Drink 1 glass of red wine or concord grape juice every day.
5. Eat foods rich in Omega 3 fatty acids - flax seeds, salmon, walnuts.
6. Use olive oil daily - Don't heat it in the pan because it loses its nutrients.
7. Of course, daily exercise and "meditation," which I call prayer.
8. Sleep 7-8 hours a night.
9. Sex 2-3 times a week.
10. Take Vitamin D, DHA Omega-3, Calcium with Magnesium, Baby Aspirin, and multi-vitamin every day.
I can handle this. Watch out world ... I'm determined to look younger than I am. Check out the website here to get all the specifics. How old do you think I am? Here's the most recent decent pics I have. (By the way, the hot dog is not on Dr. Oz's eating plan. I was in Chicago and wanted to get a genuine Chicago-style hot dog. Must say it is the best hot dog I ever had.)

 Oh, and go to this website - Real Age - to take the test to see what your "real age" is. I'll tell you my age and "real age" tomorrow. I will be very upset if you say I'm older than I am, so lie if you need to.

My grandmother taught me that everyone woman with (at least) school-aged children is always and forever 28. I'm 28. She's 28. You're 28.


That's my answer. forever and always. amen.

Then again, in today's world, that might offend some of the young mamas. LOL!
