MelW - Ugh! I remember trying to eliminate dairy for two weeks b/c it was recommended as a remedy for bed-wetting, and it was so hard I said screw it!, I'd rather change wet sheets. I hope you find an answer - how scary and frustrating
Jo - the energy coming from you is so light lately. I think the whole30 is having a metaphysical effect (or, you know, it's all just a coincidence). Either way, it's so nice to hear a lighter voice. The book sounds fun and provocative
Shanti - I hope they find a treatment that makes this easy to manage. I'm sorry the poop keeps coming, but you did manage to get so much done!
JG - I would be annoyed. I know people are busy, but really; 1?! Our school has 200 kids and we have 10 regulars at the PTO meetings
Rae - I never had that experience, but wouldnt your O2 eventually catch up to the increased blood volume? Maybe part of the winded-ness is that you are still early in the pregnancy and tired. Sometimes when I;m *just* tired I get winded doing things that dont make me winded otherwise?
RR: bike and running today. I always bike for an hour of mixed levels, and then run/walk for 20 min. Today the bike was hard, but at least I got it done, but then the run felt....good. I was going fast, and after my run-segment, I often just kept running for another 30 seconds. It got me thinking: maybe I should bike less and run more. I'm a little leary of looking a gift horse in the mouth, but I sure am tempted to go for a run tomorrow, like, outside
NRR: Storage locker - Woot. Took some boxes and our too-big dining room table, re-arranged the living-room to include the new table I just found at one of the antique stores nearby ... love at first sight. I had an idea in mind, and there it was. BUT (right!) it needed work, that Dh spent the day doing. It is sooo purty. We're in the home-stretch.
Yesterday I spent 2 1/2 hours scrubbing the shower (full tile) - first I did the grout with a tooth brush; that took about 45 minutes, then scrubbed one tile at a time. After two hours of that I was only 2/3 of the way done and my right arm was so pumped I couldnt do it anymore So I asked Dh to finish .... he figured out (genius!) that he could attach the green-scrubby to his power sander and just "sand" one tile at a time. He got it done in a jiffy, and didnt I feel like a doofus for working so hard
