Hi. How are you? I am fine.
That’s a big fat liiiiieeeee I ammmm insssssaaaaannnneeeee!!!
My Dearest Blog, I’m terribly sorry that I’ve been neglecting you in recent days – please know that I am here and still love you. We’ll be moving into a new house together in just a few days so please hold tight and know that I still love to run, eat healthy food, write crazy posts and return library books late. My daily insanity will return when real life insanity subsides – I promise.
So Blog, the very least I can do is fill you in on some of things I’ve been up to when I’m not packing, carrying all our worldly possessions out to the car in boxes or wiping cobwebs from the basement out of my eyebrows.
First, we’re still doing our homeschooling thing.
Yesterday we hit a park that just so happens to be right down the street from our house. This would be the same park where I ran trails this fall and found a big wad of cash on the ground. Remember that, Blog? Good times.
We had a lesson on gravity, potential energy, kinetic energy and selected a sacrifice to be an example and show the rest how a catapult works.
Another lie. Well, really – a joke. They just played. They’re kindergartners and preschoolers for crying out loud.
Maxine actually did pretty well at the start of our trail walk, but before long was cranky and into the sling she went. I considered signing her up to be the next catapult sacrifice but we moved on to other things before the sign up sheet came around to us.
Right after I took this picture she cried “Don’t take my picture! Did you take my picture??”
No honey, I definitely did not take your picture.
I’m up for mother of the year, did you hear?
Our trail walk ended with a little ice
skating booting in the woods – fun for kids and adults a like.
As far as food goes, all you’ve been missing out on Blog is lots of cinnamon raisin Ezekiel toast with almond butter and bananas and giant salads too. When the going gets tough, the tough make a salad.
I did buy a green Kombucha today though.
A 10 day course of antibiotics (thank you infected tooth) is my excuse to spend $3.49 on a bottle of this stuff thanks to it’s probiotic magic.
I also like the Multi-Green variety because of all the B vitamins it’s got from the blue green algae and other sea shrubbery. Given my quasi-vegan lifestyle I like to believe drinking seaweed helps out with some essential B vitamins I am otherwise missing out on.
I should probably be taking a supplement but I hate supplements. I’d rather get it from food. I’m happily living in the dark and hoping my b12 stores are holding strong. What can I say, Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt. Or wherever the hell the Nile river is.
That’s right I am HOMESKOOLING ! I am totaly kwalified to teatch these kids.
I can’t forget about the vegan-minded man in my life either! I had a little one-on-one time with my boyfriend Brendan today too.
This Whole Food Energy Bar came from Vega and was one of many that was sent a while ago. It’s been in hanging out in my stash of the bars and I snagged it as I ran out the door today to make my 174th trip to the new house in the last 13 days.
Sorry about the glare on your face, bro.
I do like these bars and they definitely do a good job of quelling hunger pangs on the run.
I’ve been eating a ton of oranges lately too (just one today though), much like the rest of the produce loving world. It is winter after all.
So Blog, that’s what’s been happening around here. We are slipping ever closer to the brink of insanity as our moving day continues to inch ever closer.
Wait, what do you mean Friday is CHRISTMAS?? All I’m thinking about is Saturday!
And to all my fellow blogs out there in blogland that I know and love – I miss you and will be around again soon.
