Wordy Wednesday

Ok, well....this week has sucked ROYALLY.  I've had a borderline-to-full blown migraine every day this week (now, I've also had a lot of caffeine because I've fallen off the paleo wagon, and I'm starting to think that might be the culprit, truly.)  I'm beyond over it.  I've spent the bulk of two full days in bed, just because I don't want to do ANYTHING.  Tomorrow is my FAVORITE day of the year.  I must snap out of this bullshit.

I need to get up, and go bake, and do stuff.  My family is having thanksgiving together this year.  We haven't celebrated this holiday together in a 3 years.  I started a new tradition for just the family that lives in my house (we celebrate with The Bestie and her family...who have adopted me.)  I LOVE it, it's just the way I want Thanksgiving to be.  This year, I get both.  My family is pulling together because of a tragedy that is upon us, but we're not going to focus on that, we're going to just enjoy one more GREAT holiday together.  And, then, I'll head over to The Bestie's parents place for a lot of laughter and more food.

It's supposed to be CLEAR tomorrow, which means there will be sunshine (it's been completely overcast for the last 5 days..no joke) and I shall bundle up and BASK in it and hopefully RUN.  If I don't chicken out because of the cold.

The Punk and I went to the store this morning, alone.  It was good to be alone, but I'm so grumpy I don't even want to be around myself.  SO, his opinion may vary.

On the 'falling off the paleo wagon' front, I'm going to go back to full on paleo as of Friday.  I'm waiting until then because I want to drink tomorrow.  Truth.  Alcohol isn't really paleo, so I will wait that out.  The family has been pretty paleo with our meals too, because I'm the one who cooks.  But, as of Friday, Three is going full on paleo with me.  He has some serious skin issues going on and we thought it was triggered by food dyes, but now I'm thinking it's something more.  We've been really tight with the food dye for almost a month, and I've been slathering him twice a day with an insanely expensive eczema treatment lotion for a couple weeks and his skin still looks horrible.  Sigh.  As a result, we're going to give paleo diet a two week trial for him to see if it will help clear up the skin issue so we can try to pinpoint what it is that's causing it.  If that just bombs, then we'll be seeing a dermatologist before the new year.

Now, I'm off to bake some sweet potatoes, make some pumpkin cookies and muffins, and blast some music to make myself happy!  And, GO!
