Before I tell you my big news, would you believe me if I told you Lily cried for HOURS on Sunday night after Mr. Prevention left on a business trip for the week? Believe it. Baby girl paced the house in search of him and stood by every door to the house whimpering. Talk about breaking a mama’s heart – what a Daddy’s Girl!! Luckily, her friend Bailey and Bailey’s mommy, came over to visit during lunch while I was at work (thank you, Tiff!)…and today is a doggie camp day!! With all of Lily’s recent injuries and surgeries, she hasn’t been to camp in a few months. She’s going to be PUMPED! Girlfriend loves going to camp and hanging out with dog pals all day. 😀
So, big news is…
We’re moving to Columbus! It’s been a great 16 short months in Tulsa, but Mr. Prevention’s job is saying onward and upward, so we are off to Ohio! A few weeks back when I got the chance to hangout with Gina in Columbus, we were also house-hunting and I was job interviewing. I feel a job offer on the horizon and so I am asking for your bloggie vibes to bring me a good one! We also found a new house! The home inspections were completed yesterday and things are moving right along. Sooo um, yep! Major changes going on! I have not yet put in my resignation at work – I am dreading it. I love my job, co-workers, and most of all, my patients. Most of you well know, I love what I do. I have to put this move in the hands of God and know that it will all work itself out just the way our stint in Tulsa has worked out. But I’ll still take all the vibes from you I can get 😉
I debated “spilling the beans” on this news for some time. It’s been percolating for the past few weeks and I am so bad at keeping secrets!! But we are very excited to start this new chapter of our lives and careers and I just ask that you bear with me during this crazy time! I love catching up with you all each and every day, but forgive me if there’s a few days I just run short on time.
In light of being a single mommy last night and having an attention-needy fur-daughter, I made a very simple Buffalo Chicken Wrap. I’ve been in search of lighter fare for the summer months, and this fit right in. Plus, I was able to incorporate items from my garden:
Lettuce & tomatoes…
Buffalo Chicken Wrap
4 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast
3 Tbsp buffalo wing sauce
Lettuce and tomato
Flatout Light wrap
¼ cup 2% cheddar cheese, shredded
Cook chicken. Toss in wing sauce. Place all ingredients in Flatout and roll tight! Enjoy!
Nutrition Information (per wrap): 320 calories; 12 g. fat; 105 mg. cholesterol; 1322 mg. sodium; 23 g. carbohydrate; 11 g. fiber; 42 g. protein
If you’re now catching on, that means my beloved, thriving garden is going to be left behind at the height of its production season! Bummer! A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into that garden! But, I’ve learned a lot about gardening and how to build a garden from the ground up…literally! Ohio’s will be bigger and hopefully better 😉
Question: How do you deal with change? Do you embrace change, or resist it? What states have you lived in and which have you enjoyed most?
P.S. I was corrected yesterday on my Full House quote. Stephanie Tanner is famous for the, “How rude!” line…not Michelle. Sorry!
P.P.S. I received several great Q&A questions yesterday! Feel free to send any others over (can be non-nutrition related, too!)…PreventionRD@gmail.com!
