Acupuncture + Setbacks + Beauty and the Beast + Work of Heart + Heart Melted

Well,

It’s been a BUSY week!  Hence the lack of daily posts.

Matt has been really busy writing, re-writing and practicing his speech and I’ve been helping/being a listening ear.

The Work of Heart 2019 is THIS WEEKEND!!!  Are you going?

You can check out her page on FB here

I sure am!  You can get tickets here

I know I’m biased, but I think Matt is so well- spoken and did a great job conveying his story and his points.  I hope everyone enjoys it.  I will be bringing kleenex….it’s not that sad, but reliving some of these things always makes me cry, especially when he’s telling it.  I don’t know why…it’s been 13 years!


I’ve been clocking lots of steps this week!

Just because I’ve been busy and running around.

Also, this past weekend I mentioned that the girls and I and my mom went to the movies but didn’t get to see it.  Well, we DID buy snacks and I had been looking forward to some popcorn, so I got some and ate it all.  WIthout thinking.

Then Matt told me I was a dummy because they put real butter on it- which I’m allergic too.

Then I made smoothies for the girls, but Lily didn’t like it, so I drank hers.  I usually make it with almond milk but had none, so I drank it and didn’t think that it had REGULAR milk in it- which I’m allergic too.

Well, let’s just say that the symptoms that I had FINALLY (JUST IN THE LAST FOUR WEEKS) recovered from and BACK and in FULL SWING!  Thankfully there is a bathroom near my classroom.  I think sometimes people think I’m making this up or don’t really believe in auto-immune diseases, but all I know is that I used to be totally fine (depends on who you ask) and all of a sudden, bam, I started getting all these brutal symptoms and was living with daily, excruciating pain, and then had FINALLY started to feel some relief and now because of a little tiny mis-step, I’m back to being in pain.

So, that SUCKS!  But the good news is, I KNOW now that eliminating dairy is working and that is my issue and I’m not doing this for nothing.

And I made an appointment to get some acupuncture today to speed the healing process up.  I got facial acupuncture (YAY!) and then she did stress release, headache and optimal digestive points.  It was relaxing and AMAZING!

I went to see Dr. Celine at EastND.  You can check them out here or on instagram @eastnd.ca

She was great!


Like I said- BUSY weekend.

Hair Appt Friday.

Work of Heart Saturday

AND my Mother in Law SURPRISED me with Beauty and the Beast tickets!!!!  We had tried to get them but weren’t able too, so when she called and told me she got some I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!!  So, we are doing that Sunday!

Busy weekend, but so fun and so worth it!

Also- random side notes:

Went to supper at my moms house this week and she made the MOST amazing supper.  Shrimp stir fry with a homemade yummy sauce.  And a gluten-free/dairy-free garlic bread.

And my mom scared the poop out of Leah, so Leah fake fought her.

AND last night I was on the treadmill when Lily came in and said “Mommy, I would really like a hug right now.” I jumped off and said “Of course, I would NEVER turn that down, what made you want a hug right now?”  To which she replied, “I just really wanted a hug because you were the first person I loved.”

OH MY GOSH- HEART MELTED- Please stay this age forever!!!!

Ok, Have a great one!

Namaste
