November Summary

During the month of November I:

- Lived the single life, as  Husband's stay in Japan was extended to 5 weeks
- Stacked 2 cord of firewood in the garage all by myself
- Hacked open a coconut all by myself (and ate it all by myself - I love coconut)
- Went to a live Zumba class - twice!
- Was mainly vegetarian, occaisionally pescatarian (had fish 4 times)
- Experimented with cutting out wheat  and dairy

The weather went from no snow, to 30 cm of snow in one day, and back to no snow within a week.

Being mainly vegetarian agreed with me. The conclusion on cutting out wheat and dairy is that it does indeed make a difference. I'm not sure what the optimum balance is at this point, and I suspect it  will be harder to stick to/play around with this once Husband comes home, but I hope I can be mindful; I hope I can pay attention to what I'm eating and how I'm feeling.

Speaking of Husband coming home...I only have two more nights of sleeping without ear plugs, 2 more days of blasting the 80's station on the car radio. Since it means I get my husband back, I'm okay with that. :)

ha! i'm a total ear plug aficionado, too (when the hubby is home). He's not a really bad snorer, but i'm a bad sleeper and any noise wakes me up. Love my pink ear plugs!

Leslie - I'm actually a pretty sound sleeper. My husband snores like a freight train. Mostly I would say that I don't have the temper that is supposed to come with my red hair, but the sound of snoring while I am trying to sleep just about sends me off the deep end.

Since I'm late to the party here, I'm assuming hubby is home and the ear plugs are firmly back in place!
I'm sure you're too happy to care, though.

We got winter yesterday. It snowed quite a bit. But hey, Christmas is almost here, and it just wouldn't feel right without some snow!
