So… good news, WordPress! My hubs surprised me this evening by taking me to Best Buy to get a new laptop for my early anniversary present!!! Yay!!!!! I am SUPER geeked about finally having a laptop and not having to type out my blog entries on my iPhone. It’s absolutely wonderful to be able to type on an actual keyboard. *Squee!!!!*
The reason why I have not updated recently is because these last couple of weeks have been insane. We spent all last week working on packing up the house to get ready for the move that we made this last Saturday. We have upgraded from a little over 1200 sq. ft. to over 2000 sq. ft. not counting the guest house out back. It is SO nice to have room to live in. We went from a bathroom that was about the size of a normal half bath, to one that is about 4 times that size PLUS a half bath in the master bedroom. This week, we have been working on unpacking as we go. There was a lot of cleaning to do here before we could unpack. Apparently, the previous tenants didn’t ever clean out their cabinets, or the kitty litter box that they had on the carpet in one of the back bedrooms (I will be shampooing that carpet several times this weekend in an attempt to not have to recarpet just yet).
Last week, I did make it to Crossfit a couple of times, but I didn’t make it at all this week. I will say that I do not feel the least bit guilty about that due to the fact that we have had plenty of manual labor that we have been doing since moving in. The WOD last Tuesday was a killer! It was 3 rounds for time of 21 wall balls, 15 ring push ups (PAIN!), 9 20″ box jumps, run 200m, 21 situps, 15 35# kettlebell swings, 9 65# clean & jerk/snatch, and run another 200m. By the end of round 1, I thought I was dying! Somehow, seeing everyone else struggle helped push me through. I eventually finished the entire workout in 45:33. I’m fairly certain that it took me the rest of the week to fully recover from that one alone…
In the nutrition realm, I have once again started enforcing gluten free in our household. Things have slowed down enough that I am able to take the time to have real food available for the family, even when I am not home. It took a bit to get back in the swing of things after recovering from surgery, and dealing with a move, but we’re on the right track again. Now, I just need to get the hubs and the mom in law on board. I know that the boy is getting less bad stuff overall, but I believe that it can’t really do much good on helping him deal with things unless gluten at the very least is pulled completely out. I personally would like to have him on full paleo (maybe even a ketogenic version) in order to help with his behavioral issues. We did get a notice that he has been moved from the 10 month waiting list to be evaluated for Asperger’s to the 6-9 month waiting list. I plan on meeting with a representative from the school district next week to see if there is any screening they could do to maybe go ahead and get him in a more appropriate class setting even though we do not have a diagnosis yet.
So, now that I have a laptop (by the way, so far Windows 8 sucks), I plan on blogging more. I still have quite a few things that I need to figure out on this thing in order to post pictures and stuff. Some of the prompts on this thing are confusing. I still can’t find how to add tags to the blog post, or how to look at them in a more normal way. The weird side scrolling that seems to be prominent is driving me nuts. If anyone has any tips on putting up with this stupid OS, please please PLEASE share! And on that note, I’m off to bed!
