I had bright purple streaks added to my hair today. Curious how long it will take the kids to notice (“Mom and her wild ideas…”) and then to ask for some of their own.
Well hey there!
The last month has flown past while I’ve been busy writing, designing, coding, and, oh yeah – loving on my babies and my husband.
Here is some of what I’ve been up to:
Fighting the flu. The reports aren’t exaggerating — this strain is stubborn.
Finally answering (nearly) every imaginable question about going (and staying) shampoo free: Shampoo Free FAQ. If you have any additional questions, please ask! Not kidding – I’m happy to help anyone considering this.
Trying out other uses for baking soda (since I knew it had to be for more than just baking, hair care and cleaning counter tops).
Watching Alabama’s victory over Notre Dame (Roll Tide!!)
Helping Abbie finalize her application to ASFA.
Inviting y’all to come visit us in Birmingham. Seriously. It’s on Jetsetter.com’s list of the 6 places to visit in 2013.
Continuing to update on the latest Resources and News for parents and educators of gifted and twice exceptional children.
Creating some logos, web designs and graphics that I’m super proud of. I can’t wait for them to go live.
Taking the kids to Tuscaloosa for the first time, so they could watch the BCS Championship parade.
And, starting today, this:
I happened to catch a post from Missy, at Almost Naptime, where she mentioned the book and that she was going to start on it. She mentioned that it is an anti-inflammatory diet, and that even foods that are healthy can cause inflammatory reactions. That caught my attention, so I sought out more information. I had a lot of questions and have watched her go through the first week and half (I’ve messaged her a lot… bless her heart…)
(Even though I do not have a Kindle, I downloaded the Kindle app and purchased the Kindle version, and HELLO! I love the Kindle app on my iPhone/iMac/Macbook Air! Highlighting, bookmarking… heaven…)
By the time you read this, I will have already weighed myself and drunk/drank/drinken (heh) 16 ounces of water with lemon juice (after weighing myself, thank you…), had a cup of dandelion tea for liver support, and eaten some flax seed granola with blueberries.
Because despite the fact that for the last 3 years I’ve been eating healthier than ever, I have struggled with chronic pain/autoimmune issues and, though I run 4 days a week, a slight weight gain. I want to find out if I’m reactive to any of the healthy foods I am eating, and I don’t want ‘slight’ to turn into ‘major’.
Speaking of my chronic pain, several people have asked and I still plan on having my IUD removed. Because I’m a new patient, I had to wait for an appointment, so I will keep updating here as I figure things out. It will hopefully be removed next month.
What are y’all up to? Do tell.
