Well, things have been rough. Mostly health issues for all of us, one after another. Josh was hurt at work (someone else cut his finger to the bone), so things got tight when he missed work. Plus he has to go all the way out to Rolla...as does Eden, who now visits the same doc after breaking her arm. 13 yrs before a break isn't too bad. She was learning to rollerblade. Unfortunately, it happened right after she had maybe one or two games in her last Little League season. So she missed out on that, and she's too old for camp this year. Ivy & Maya are going, and funds are always short during camp time of the year.
The garden is slowly starting to produce, and I'm working on my price matching + couponing skills again, and I'm going to give Whole30 another try. I have a friend or two who may do it with me. Anyone want to join us? I always see great health benefits when I do that, and I need to since I've been struggling with tons of illness lately. I've got some freezer meals planned out thanks to Once A Month Meals, and having easy-grab food made ahead seems to be the key to me sticking with it. I just get tired of cooking all the time, so I'm going to start making some meals ahead and maybe start in a week or two.
I'm supposed to be doing Camp NaNoWriMo and finally finishing my NaNo WonderSaga project, but I've been unable to write for the past couple of months. I'm not sure why it's so hard right now. I've been trying to read more and get more exercise, as that often helps when nothing will work/flow for me, but I'm still struggling.
I've fallen off the Habitica (formerly HabitRPG) wagon, and I'm working on that. It's been months since I was active, and I need to get back into the habit – any habit, really – again. I'm cleaning up my task lists and challenges and working on giving myself a fresh start there. The house is a wreck again, as it always gets when I struggle, but I'm going to take what I learned long ago from flylady and at least make a point to do 15 mins a day. If I can do that, it'll start to snowball. Hopefully. I've been doing pieces on the garden whenever I can, and I'm slowly (so, so slowly) reclaiming that, so I can do it with the house and rest of life too.
I have some other things going on that I don't want to jinx. They're pretty important to me though, so I'd appreciate any good thoughts, prayers, & vibes my way. I'll share more when I have something concrete and positive to share.
