Exciting News ...

According to my gynecologist, I "don't look my age. And she should know since she sees lots of women every day."

Nice. I really like her.

I didn't like having an extra pair of eyes in the examination room for my annual exam, but I guess that's what "observations" are for. That observer got to hear about all my 40-year-old issues. When you add the nurse in there, that's 3 people ... count 'em ... 3 people observing me. Really observing me. Getting quite an eyeful, if you know what I mean.

Anyways ... By the end of the visit, I walked out with free medication, an order for blood-work, and the highly-anticipated mammogram appointment.

In other news (good news), it only took me an entire year to lose 8 pounds. I'm thankful it wasn't a gain.

But the most exciting part of the day was definitely not the exam, it was my Bible study, where I discovered I am definitely more wicked than any one of my friends and my personality-type description (choleric-melancholy) makes me sound like a crazy control freak who doesn't care about anyone.

That's totally wrong.

Seriously? Cholerics are totally misunderstood. Pretty much the story of my life.

I think this calls for another view of my friend, Ouiser ... pretty sure she was a choleric too.
(And just as pleasant as all cholerics!)

I love her.

I'm gonna try and work on bringing my "melancholy" numbers up above my "choleric" status. I like them more.

And, let me not forget what else made Bible study so exciting! 

CARNITAS!!
Yep. I made this. Super easy & delicious!! Just put it all in the crock pot and you're done.


Here's the recipe I got from The Girl Who Ate Everything:

Easy Crockpot Pork Carnitas
2 pork tenderloins (about 1 pound each)
1 (15-18 ounce) jar of your favorite salsa verde
1 (10 ounce) can Rotel tomatoes
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies
1 white onion, chopped in large pieces
1/2 teaspoon cumin

Place all of the ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until pork easily forks apart. Serve buffet-style with flour tortillas, cheese, cilantro, avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream and a squeeze of lime. Make sure to get some of that yummy sauce the pork is in inside your tortilla.


Enjoy!

I'm choleric melancholy, too. I actually like the choleric part, bc it means we're not pushovers. I don't like the melancholy part, bc it makes us sound like whiners.

And I'm pretty sure my eldest is choleric melancholy, too, so that explains all the drama in my house. ugh!
