Simple quick note as I sit here at the computer.
I am trying to drink Tazo Zen Tea in place of my regular coffee. Not quite at the no caffeine at all, or just warm water and lemon stage yet. I had such a headache yesterday I took 3 Advil, and drank a few sips of a chai tea with nothing added (no sugar, no cream). I needed the caffeine and the warmth. Headache eventually stayed away for a few hours. That was a relief. I was actually getting waves of nausea. I didn’t realize my 1-2 cups a day would be that powerful. But I do occasionally drink caffeinated soda too. So, overall I am not that surprised.
For my own clarity…this isn’t a true detox. It is: 30 days of juice/smoothies and 4 weeks of vegan. And technically my 4 weeks of vegan hasn’t even started yet. Even though I am trying my damnedest to out do myself, I am more realistic. I am a mother of four girls, one is 4 months old. I imagine I may taste a heated meal and it may contain meat or more likely, cheese. Cheese is the devil in my house. It’s overly abundant and it is always requested.
The flu: I think I am getting it or something like it. I have those body aches, headaches, sore throat, etc. Its not terrible, but its not normal and its not from one day of no coffee/cheese/meat/creamer. We shall see, I dislike being ill. (Who does?)
Today I am going to create a ton of garbage, clean up and start organizing the house. I think we will be moving in July/August. This rental house is just too small. I need more space, especially in the kitchen. I will show you pics. Its incredible how small our living space is. I am not one of those crazy bloggers who lives in a 500 sq foot home with 4 kids and loves to say she lives – SIMPLY. Simply my ass. No one wants to raise kids in a cracker jack box. We need room to stretch, eat without bumping elbows and have a little privacy. A little. I have had bigger living rooms in an apartment. This house has NO dining area and it is not a true eat in kitchen. Imagine that….a family of 6 living in a house with no eating area. AND we eat at the table for almost every meal. We don’t eat on the couch. So a new rental is – inevitable.
I hear my adorable baby coughing. Time to go. Not all my posts are going to be long, well designed or purposeful. But it’s a journal, more than a blog. Going to work on a Wix blog next week. I am really not digging wordpress. By the way, how do you post on Wix? I saw how to design a page, but not how to post if its a blog….but I need time to go sit and learn on my own, I suppose.
Have a nice wintery day. 🙂 It’s cold, white and pretty outside. But I am jealous of Connie living in Arizona….
