We are all finally feeling better (well, mostly) and now we are on spring break! While I like the kids being home and not having to get up at the crack of dawn to make lunches, fix hair, and send them to school, I’m definitely ready to get back into a routine. I haven’t been to work or kept any kind of schedule since before our ski trip which was as least a month ago! And since our schedules are still all messed up this week due to spring break we are going out to eat twice again this week 🙂
I am still working really hard to heal Lance’s – and my – gut! After this bout of sickness even though we don’t have the virus anymore we are both struggling to feel good. I think Lance got all messed up from taking antibiotics and I switched thyroid medications which was NOT a good idea and now I’m all messed up too. Needless to say I’m switching back to my original medication and am working really hard to eat and feed my family only nourishing food and take out any inflammatory or reactive foods such as dairy and eggs until we start coming around. I still have lots of snacks, desserts, and some comfort foods this week though – just health-ified – to keep me and the fam happy 🙂
