Wondered where I’ve been?
I’ve been painting. That usually takes any extra time from my life for a awhile. And in this case…well…I’m going to definitely juggle things. This is a big project.
I spent the weekend prepping the house.
I LOVE paint. It gives a home a completely new look for very little cost.
or in my case…a lot of cost because I have a lot to paint.
This is what happens when I get a wild hair to change things.
It’s been far too long, we were long overdue for a fix up into a new year.
I spent a lot of time on Houzz looking for good ideas and great paint colors. In the end I think it definitely helped but I have to go onto the site with my eyes wide open. I can easily get overwhelmed AND disheartened. Who lives in these homes?
Sunday I painted most of the day but ended early enough to throw one little mile on the treadmill. 🙂
Monday came and hit me like a brick wall.
It was just a really hard day and at the end of the day I got practically nothing done and held mostly nothing in.
That would be a Celiac thing for me. When I accidentally ingest gluten, my stomach rebels for a little while and I’m still dealing with it from our Boulder weekend.
So I threw everything to the side and decided painting would be my zen. I also called it exercise.
Does that count? I’m making it count.
also…I have a pretty great husband. But I won’t brag. Anymore. Today.
Today my plan is little meals all day to see if my stomach can start to like me again.
Then I will try and finish the kitchen tonight and hopefully run to the gym for a little elliptical.
And maybe just reset my brain for joy.
I did watch most of the Oscars, by the way…did you?
I LOVE Neil Patrick Harris and still thought…Dude. Must be a lot of pressure because you do not seem relaxed. Even in your underwear.
However, the after party resulted in THIS:
And now I (the photographer in me) am very very happy.
Thank you Mark Seliger.
Oh…one more thing before I leave you with some zen for the day.
Gluten Dude, who is not my favorite person but he is a wealth of information and he’s coming from a good place, is an incredible resource for Celiacs and gluten sensitivity patients. He posted a ridiculous poem today on his blog/Pinterest/FB that basically said…~hey check this out. I feel BETTER on Probiotics and Vitamin B-Complex~. It’s hard to discuss bodily functions. It just really is. But when there are no resources for it, you really are grateful to find anything. So I guess we’ll take the ridiculous poem if that’s the way to get the info.
And anyone with these issues…it’s worth the try for sure. Stop at the drugstore.
Get your zen on…yoga today.
Health and happiness to you…and of course…joy~
