|last night, in the middle of the storm|
On a positive note, I'm continuing to feel better and better after having given up gluten at the tail end of the summer. It was hard and awful at first, but I'm learning how to eat in a way that is healing to my body and finding ways to bake using ingredients that aren't harmful and while every once in a while I find myself having a little pity party, the benefits far outweigh the sorrow and I quickly move past it. I wish that we had figured it out back during the winter when we started the elimination diet and hadn't been so quick to determine that it wasn't the issue. It would've saved so much trouble in the meantime. But, live and learn.
Marching season has ended, rehearsals for the Holiday show have started and school is going well. I've started my holiday shopping, we are saving to chaperone the band's trip to Disney in March and my family is in a good place right now. I have much to be thankful for. November is coming and I plan to spend the month really focusing on my blessings. It's time to turn this ship around.
