January 30, 2015
This year, January came with a few self-inflicted challenges. I kind of enjoy a good challenge, it gives the brain something to think about.
Whole30. I've been tossing the idea around for awhile now and I finally jumped in. And you know what? It was great! Sure, I was miserable the first week mostly because I was really foggy headed. But, I've discovered that no sugar is better for me than a little sugar. I've also had very little heartburn or stomach aches. I've suspected that maybe dairy is an issue for me. I've discovered that mushrooms are a no-no. At least in large quantities. Ahem.
I'm taking a break for Carrie's birthday weekend starting tomorrow then I plan on jumping back into another Whole30. Crazy? Maybe.
14 Week Home Organizing Challenge over at A Bowl Full of Lemons.
I've also been working on the pantry (also much needed) which I won't post pics of because...boring. Pantry. Boring. The laundry room is done except I'm waiting on my husband to hang a shelf for me. If I remember I might post pics of that one. Only it probably won't be clean any more. And then I'd have to clean it first. So...might.
Makerfarm 3D printer. They've been contemplating and saving for this for a long time. It has been really exciting to see it print! I am in total amazement at these kids...they are so smart and they did a great job putting in hours to put the printer together.
The rest of January was just enjoying being together whenever we could! We did have a burst of lovely 50 degree weather and sunshine and we certainly soaked that all up.
