Tomorrow, I start a new school year at Georgia College & State University. While I'm very sad that Randy headed home today for his own school year, I am happy to be beginning my 12th year here. If I can't be there with him, this is the next best place for me to be right now.
Admittedly, it will be wonderful to see my students again. I feel so much better now, and I hope I can be a positivie, effective teacher to them.
But I also have a whole new attitude in life. And for that, I'm thankful.
I've been exploring the GF options in downtown MillyVegas since I've been back to school, and I feel pretty good about things right now. I love sushi, and we have a booming new Japanese restaurant. They even said I could bring in my own bottle of LaChoy Soy Sauce! And there's fine Tex-Mex on the corner with chips, guac and cheese available. I don't know that I'll try much else there. We also have another Mexican place.
But mostly, I have to get organized and bring in my food for lunch. Today I brought in my stash of Larabars, nuts, fruit, and cheese; tomorrow I need to bring in some crackers I forgot.
On a sweet note, I ordered some baked goods from Bread of Life today. I read about them on the Celiac Chicks website, and when I visited their site, I was so impressed. I had an email exchange with Amy Middleton there, and she was delightful -- I could sense a sweet spirit in her. I can't wait to get my brownies, muffins, and mixes from there! I will report back, but for now, I've posted their address on the side.
And a big shout out to Joy Peterson, who has been scoping out the peanut butter aisle for me. Thanks, Joy. You ARE a JOY!
Much love and happy Tuesday,
