grad school · illness

Been Busy.

I have to apologize to all of you.
I have been so busy with grad school and illness. At the moment I am fighting a sinus infection and crazy allergies. I’m on penicillin and steroids, and allergy medicine and a inhaler. Last week both kids ran a fever of 103F and I think M has a sinus infection now as well.
My knitting is sort of on hold and my quilt is as well. My house looks like a tornado went through it and I don’t have the energy to even think about picking up. My deal with myself is that I can’t take out the sewing machine unless the house is clean. I do have a few things on the needles but they are all sort of long term projects. I will post photos later.
During this illness I have been able to watch quite a bit of TV since I don’t have to look down to see it and I can watch the kids play while laying on the couch and I have watched the whole first season of Army Wivesand I have started on Season 2 while eating way too much candy. I’m totally addicted to the show now.

I have decided to shed 30 pounds and my first baby step is to quit while flour. I have done really well in that department and not had any white flour in 2 weeks. I also was going to quit white sugar but haven’t been as good on that front. My next step is to get a routine going with exercise. I’ve been really bad about sitting around on the couch lately since I had M. I don’t know what it is about child number 2 but I’ve been a lot less active. But to get me started I got myself a nice pair of Reebok Women’s Runtone Running Shoe and they are super comfortable. But in all the illness and studying I have been doing I have only ran 3 times since I bought them and I can’t wait to feel better again so that I can run on my treadmill.
Here is a good video if you would like to start running with me.

Here is to health and happiness and the fact that grad school will be over in December and then no more school for me for a while.

Tell me what are you up to.
