Life Lately ... again
We've been working at
moving around rooms in the house. Is that normal? Or do we have too much space
and time on our hands? I could just be restless like that. I seem to torture my
husband continuously with moving things around. Anyways, our "front
room/dogs room" is now becoming space for books crafts and my computer. I
have to say it looks and feels great. You know how when you walk into a room
and the atmosphere is just, hell yeah! This room has got it going on! The kids have been really enjoying it, playing the board games and using crafts. I think it is just more welcoming to them.
One set back... We have to set up an appointment to get a new connection in the
room for our internet. Dish stole the line for our tv? Switched it outside at
the box as opposed to setting up their own... I'm not very amused.
My office is becoming a play room. We're going to try out not having toys in
kids rooms and see how it works out for them.
In continuing to work on donations/minimizing/liberating from our bursting at
the seams house we tackled our closet, my clothes and my husband's. Apparently
I "squirrel away" things in the closet. I found an unopened box of
contact lenses, which means the eye appointment I've needed all month is
getting pushed back. I also found long lost leggings, too many belts, and
multiple children's teeth. I'm not going to know who's teeth are whose... does
that stuff even matter? Do people keep kids teeth? My son has informed me that
he thought that I just threw them away. Maybe that's a sign?
With cleaning up, cleaning out, and moving around the house I have other plans
in mind as well. The girls room is getting a full make over. I'm excited to get
to it and I think they will love it. My son's room will be getting a lift as
well but his will come next.
After 9 months of embracing
a vegetarian diet and a few long conversations we've decided to include meat in
our diets again. I don't have excuses for such a decision. It really just
seemed like the best option for our needs, dietary and otherwise. I still fully
support vegetarian and vegan diets/lifestyles, no ifs ands or buts about it! I've
always played a fairly neutral role with these sorts of decisions because it is
so personal. We spent the last week enjoying the meals and meats that we had
missed. Rachel - the very worst aspiring vegan.
I have been reading about
the Whole30 and I believe I will be setting a start date in the near future. It
kind of eliminates all those extra terrible things(sugar, grains and legumes)
that have taken over my diet lately or made me feel awful.
That's life lately for us.
How are you? What have you been doing? Do you have any projects this year?Are you on a new diet in this new year?
