Checking In!

Hey everyone, yes I am still kickin'! I disappeared for a while; I kinda imploded. Not a pretty picture. I was burned out big time with blogging and I had to take a step back and take care of me a bit. My food allergies had become so intense I was getting desperate for help, life was miserable! I knew I would have to get serious and come up with some kind of a plan to get better and quick. 

I did just that, and I hope to have the time to write about it all one day because perhaps my story would help someone else. I started with the AIP diet, bone broth, gelatin, fermented foods and Kombucha just to let you know that much for now.

And yes, I did get better! I still have food allergies and other issues but they are not as bad and I feel so much better now. But I have a lot on my plate still too, I had 6 to 9 kids everyday this summer. I have a sweet little grand baby who I call our little overachiever. He's just about 10 months old and already able to climb out of his pac n play, I expect him to be walking in the next week or so. 

He's the busiest happiest, most energetic child I have ever seen! He keeps me on my toes, er uh feet, all day long; literally! I stand by him most of the time because he moves so fast and is into everything, plus I am also protecting him against being hurt by the other kids as they come running around a corner or something. 

So, today is the first day of school and that's why I took some time to get this written. I survived another summer with the kids and I feel like having a party! Over at Hill House I am going to be posting a recipe soon for Prickly Pear Jam.

How are you all doing anyway? Your kidos back in school yet? Let me know whats going on with you ok?

  1. So glad to see you posting, Connie ! I am so sorry you had and still have health problems, but am glad to hear you are taking care of yourself. Your grandson is adorable and I think once he starts to walk, the other kids will need to be careful ;-)

  2. School does not start til the end of August around here. You certainly have had a time, but I am glad to hear you feel better. That little guy is a cutie. I got a little tired just looking at his pictures. The energy bounces!

  3. What an adorable child! So sorry you have been fighting food allergies. My husband and I have been fighting a series of minor health issues for a couple of years now, and it's no fun.


Thank you SO much for taking the time to leave a comment!
