Update + Halloween Prep!

Happy Tuesday!  EEK!  Tomorrow is Halloween!  I’m so, so excited!  And tonight is the Highlander Harvest Knight- which is an evening full of Halloween activities at the school.  I am supervising and dressing up, so I’m super pumped.  Well, I find it hard as I will miss the spending time with the girls as I chaperone before they go to bed and I won’t see them at all this evening.  But, I’m chaperoning with a good friend, so I’m sure it will be fun.

Ok- so update on my “health” issues.  I had to increase my intake of gluten and dairy for two weeks before I got my blood tests done, and as I mentioned I found out I’m allergic to dairy and have an intolerance to gluten and eggs.  Dairy and eggs will be the hardest for me as I eat a lot of cheese and about six eggs a day, so it will be an adjustment.

However, I don’t know if it’s because I HAD increased my intake recently, or what…but this is my eczema right now.  It’s PAINFUL and NOT fun!  I’m hoping now that I’ve cut it out completely that it clears up QUICKLY!

As far as my iron levels go, they are at 8.3 when they are supposed to be between 50-60.  So, he put me on supplements to get me back to where I’m supposed to be.  I’ve been so exhausted, that a girlfriend whose husband was anemic recommended this to me.

It is a cast iron cooking tool in the shape of a fish.  You can boil water with the fish it in and cook with it or simply drink the water.  I am simply drinking the water after it cools down and so far I’ve noticed an increase in energy, but I’m not sure if it’s just placebo affect or if it is really working.  I get my iron blood levels tested again soon, so we will see.


The girls are so excited for Halloween and helped get the decorations ready.  These gravestones needed batteries, so they took off the backs and helped put the batteries in.

We will only fully decorate tonight as it’s been raining and quite windy out and these things will blow away quite easily.


And then the evening consisted of Breaking Bad and laundry.

I’m done Outlander (insert BAWLING face) until the next season comes out on NETFLIX, and it’s only just NOW coming out on cable….so it will be awhile.  I miss Jamie.

Alright, have a fabulous Tuesday!

Namaste
