I'm sooo exhausted, but it was so worth it.
Dd and I spent ALL day walking all over town. I estimate we covered about 10 - 12 miles. I was just going to take her to the library to get a card. We went to lunch first, a small detour. After the library, I remembered that I hadn't notified the district that new homeschoolers had moved in. We're past the legal deadline and I keep forgetting to send a letter. It was such a nice day, we just walked the couple miles to the district office just outside town. lol They were really sweet and didn't really care that we were late. As long as we were out there, there's that butcher we have been wanting to check out, so we hiked out to their shop. Totally worth it. All grass fed organic meats and if you buy it frozen in bulk, it's the same price (some is even cheaper) as the stuff from the supermarket that aggravates my medical issues so badly. I placed a bulk order to pick up tomorrow when dh is here with the car! I'm so very excited to get back to eating healthier! They also hooked me up with some local organic farms and a dairy that will sell us organic raw milk (for the dog, of course, because it's illegal to sell for human consumption in this state.) I'm beside myself about the prices, though. I was expecting organic, hormone free foods to be pretty much out of our budget in such a small rural area. So many of the local farmers are the huge sources for that kind of thing for this region of the US, though, that it's no more expensive to buy straight from them than to buy lower quality foods from the stores. Soooo loving living here!!!
THEN ds called because he was home from school and we weren't. lol He had forgotten some things at school, so we detoured out to the high school on the way home. It was like 5pm by the time we got home! I may never be able to run a marathon, but I'm trying to be as active as I can while the weather is still unusually nice.
