I've had post ideas...meant to find time to sit down and write them...and just haven't been able to.
I have no idea. It doesn't seem like we're that busy, but the days seem to fly. It's been three months today since we left Florida, and that's just hard to believe. A few things that have been filling our days...
- We've been spending lots and lots of time at the Little League park, and those bleachers up there are just about killing my backside! We've only got one game this next week and then the following week off for Spring Break before May rolls around and we've got two games a week plus practices. Caleb still absolutely loves it and is already talking about next season. I'm going to have to invest in some bleacher seats!
- The past week has been wrapped around Caleb being sick - first with the croup (and two pointless doctor's visits) and finally with pneumonia and a trip to the Children's Hospital an hour from us. He played baseball Monday night, while we thought he was improving. Not quite. He's on two antibiotics at the moment and is starting to get well. He needs to get into an allergist, but attempting to navigate insurance and a new pediatrician isn't making that easy.
- Lots of gym time for me. I decided I hit the limit of what I could do on the elliptical this week and
decided to add in a little running once or twice a week while on the treadmill.
I could barely walk for 3 days.
It's good to have something new to beat, though - I need some sort of competition to keep me motivated. I'm at just over 16 pounds and about a dozen inches lost in the not quite 3 months since
I started at the gym in late January, and the weightloss just keeps getting more consistent.
- I read Eat to Live last week, and it really made me think. I'm always looking for new food inspiration, and while I don't agree with everything...I did agree with a lot of what the author said. I'm hoping to share soon in one of those posts I want to get written soon. Very much in line with The China Study, but more on the practical side of things.
- Still vegetarian.
Still don't miss meat.
In almost two months, I've had a few bites of shrimp and a few bites of lamb stew at my favorite Basque restaurant. My stomach is still happier with me and my energy levels are great (protein - another post I want to get written in the next few weeks!).
And it's beginning to look like God's plan for us is taking shape. I'm so anxious to be able to share, but there's so much we're still waiting on. I'm reminded often of these quotes from Jim Elliot:
God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with him.
Lord, make my way prosperous not that I achieve high station, but that my life be an exhibit to the value of knowing God.
Exciting days are coming...and more posts, too!
