Another Day 4
It has been a long, long time. Too long. This year has been super stressful and eventful but there is a light at the end of the tunnel and I can see it!
In the last several months we have remodeled our kitchen, been jerked around by my hubbys job over where we were being transferred to the point of extreme frustration. Originally we were told that we were going to one place, got that all set in my mind, then they changed their mind, no you are going here, then that got put on hold, then they said we were going to go someplace that I really wanted to go, then no we will send you to this other place after all. And then we had less than 30 days to find a house and get all moved in. Nice. So we went on a house hunting trip with all 6 children, found a house, packed up and fixed up the old house, moved over 1000 miles away from anyone that we know, lived in a hotel for a few days with 6 children and 2 Great Danes while waiting for our house to close and finally moved in a couple weeks ago. Then we had no phone and no internet service for 10 days, hubby left on a business trip and we had to unpack and get settled in. Plus I had to find a homebirth midwife in a state where it is illegal for a midwife to attend a women at home. Seriously, what kind of idiot makes that sort of a law! No wonder I had a hard time focusing on my health and diet!
Now, I have a little over 2 weeks until this baby is due and things have finally settled down. And I can focus again on getting and staying healthy. Yay! We are in a whole new place where we do not know anyone. It is good in a way because I can reinvent myself. And I choose to reinvent myself as a healthy and happy raw vegan!
The stress is not over yet. We still need to sell our old house in this awful market and have some other issues to deal with, but there is an end in sight. I have no control over the real estate market but I can control what I put into my mouth.
Today is my birthday and I will make myself a yummy raw treat. Time to get going!
