-I'm feeling loads better with each day. So much so, I'm toying with the idea of working out again. I've been on an "I feel like junk" hiatus. The medication mixed with the no gluten no dairy diet is finally helping. My bruising is gone, and my hair is growing back and sticking straight up (think little red troll from the 90's after being shook). The best part is that my joint pain is remarkably better after a couple months. Now that the doctors have the ulcers under control I am very hopeful.
-I tried Quinoa for the first time yesterday. It's a gluten free grain and I made a custard with it (think rice pudding or bread pudding). Drizzled with a touch of syrup it's pretty tasty! I'm getting better by the day coming up with options. I seriously tweaked the recipe make it dairy free too and was concerned it wouldn't come out but it did. YAY!
-Ever heard of carpet squares? I know you're probably thinking of doctors offices or business settings. There's a new product at Home Depot called Simply Seamless and it's a twist carpet square with the padding attached. When we bought our home we purchased it at a ridiculous price, in part, because the flooring needed replaced. We chose to have it cleaned professionally twice to buy us some time. Obviously it's a large financial investment, but it's also a lot of work. We are going to have to remove the current carpet and then bleach and seal the sub-flooring before installing something new. Needless to say, it's a tad overwhelming. So when my mom and I were wandering Home Depot the other day and saw this:
|I prefer the color on the left|
|That's 4 tiles|
|lay the tile down and it is virtually seamless!|

-After having a week off of school, I am having a hard time getting back to the grind. Monday morning Jared got up with the kids and did school with them giving me another day. Reason number 982838477586386287346 he's my favorite.
