Summer is coming!
Things have been very busy for the last few months at my house. My daughters are finishing up school and I'm preparing for the few months that they will be home all day. I enjoy having the kids home, but we despise the incredibly hot heat. So we've been enjoying going to the park and getting outside while we still can. I had forgotten how relaxing it can be to go to the park and lay on the grass for a while. Back in May I got some not fun news from my doctor that my liver has decided it doesn't want to function properly anymore. So we've been doing tests and put me on new medications to try to help. We are still not sure what is causing it to be a sad enlarged liver of grumpiness, but I've not given up on us finding out the cause and working on getting it back to a happier healthier liver. Until we know what the cause is I'm concentrating on putting good things in my body, so I'm not over working my liver trying to get rid of junk that I don't need. So lots of healthy food, juices, milk, and water. I've cut back my coffee a ton as it really seems to bother my digestive system now and it doesn't taste the same. I often have this strange taste in my mouth now, so certain foods just don't appeal to me. I like to think it's just God's way of helping me not eat things I don't need. It's so true that if you put garbage in your body you're going to get garbage out. I am hoping that by putting good things in I'll have more energy and be able to be a bit happier. During all of this time I've still been painting and knitting up a storm. Just because life throws you a curve doesn't mean you have to stop chugging along the road. Sometimes you have to just slow down a bit to deal with the curve.
