A Salt-Free, Dairy-Free, Chocolate-Free Par-tay!

It's Friday, and I'm celebrating. Why? Because I got a huge box of shiny new books today? No. Because I'm going out on a hot date with my husband? I wish. No, I'm celebrating because I got the results of my blood work back and my thyroid/iodine levels are low enough for my iodine radiation treatment. Woo hoo! I know, it may not seem like much to be celebrating, but it is. I've been on a low-iodine diet this week and it's seriously just about been the death of me. No iodized salt, no dairy, no CHOCOLATE. Can you imagine? It's been horrendous. By Tuesday, I should be locked away from the world-at-large, alone with my books, feasting on chocolate, and glowing like a firefly. Ahhh ... now that's worth celebrating, don't you think?

Okay, maybe you don't understand my enthusiasm, so chew on this: The Book Blogger Hop over at Crazy-For-Books.com is in full-swing. This fun, weekly meme encourages us to hop around and discover all the great book blogs out there (hint: there are TONS). Click on over to sign up. If you're here because of the hop, be sure to let me know. If you're here just because you love me, then thanks :)

I'm so excited I think I'll make myself a baked potato loaded with unsalted butter and non-iodized salt. I might even throw in some steamed unseasoned vegetables, just for fun. Do I know how to party, or what?

  5. Susan, I'm so glad that all your deprivation this week has had a good result. Well, good so you can take that glow-in-the-dark test. LOL You've definitely had a "yummy" diet. :-)

    I'm here as part of the Hope, but mostly as someone who's been concerned about you. Take care and at least you'll get to read a lot!

  9. Hello there Susan,
    I am so excited you found me and I found you. I took a quick peak through your blog and found so many similarities. First, I've really want to read the book you are currently reading, I've wanted to start the Middle School Reading challenge (just today I thought of it) and I love your Fluffy reading on your side bar. I am a fan of cozies and read the Leslie Meier murder cozies recently!.
    And I am a SAHM as well and I go a little crazy each day because of it. :)
    Take care. I look forward to following you.
    Michelle
