Sick of being sick....

This marks the 6th day of me being sick and I'm not loving it. I haven't felt this bad in many years. I finally went to the dr. yesterday and was told I've got bronchitis. I was prescribed an inhaler and cough syrup with codine. I'm pretty sure it's just nasty bitter water though, as it's done nothing so far. I'm happy I got it when I did though, and not a few days earlier as I was still able to bout last Saturday. The sad thing is, I've now missed two scrimmages, 2 endurance's and 1 1/2 team practices. I feel weak and tired, and every time I get up and try to do something as little as a load of laundry I break out in a sweat. Not good. It's also completely stopped production of my bags, I haven't sewn since last Friday at our team bonding night (derby) and even then it wasn't much. We're supposed to be going to the drive in tomorrow night, here's hoping I'm up for it! XOXOXOXO

Opening my eyes to what's around me and embracing my life!

I've been cleaning most of the day, throwing SO much away and it feels absolutely wonderful. I can't explain the funk I've been in the last year. The foggyness and clouds that have seemed to surround my head has lifted and I can see so much clearer. Ironically...I just started wearing my glasses again this last weekend and that's around the same time I noticed I was focusing more. So many puns there, lol. In just two days I've been able to rid our living space of about 1/4 of our stuff. Stuff we don't need. I'm about 1/3 of the way done, then the deep cleaning starts. With 2 cats and a ferret, there's so much dust in the air. Cat hair is one thing I cannot stand..and it's probably one of the things that will take the longest to rid this place of. The black mold on our bedroom windows, the scum in every corner of our shower...the hair around the sink (thanks sweetie) and the dusty *everything in our living room*... Spring cleaning has started, the sun has been out for a couple days and I feel like every part of me has woken up. I feel as if I'm living for the first time in well over a year..two years maybe. On a side note, I'm on day 5 of my raw vegan adventure. While 100% raw-vegan is my goal, I've been about 98% on a daily basis and I'm so proud of myself! I've used my dehydrator twice this week, which is a huge change for me! Hello world - what do you have in store for me today?! <3 Kara

My head is spinning..

I recently decided to re-start my raw food journey and I'm on day 4. I haven't been 100% raw, it's been more like 90..but it's still a major change. I feel better every day, my head is clearer and I'm more focused. In a strange way, I feel more at peace. I think I'm a hippie at heart...I'd have dreadlocks and drive a Volkswagen van if it made sense with the rest of my life. I think now, I'd just get strange looks. I'm in a purging phase at home. My apartment has been so extremely cluttered the last year/two and I'm in the mood to just get rid of everything. So, yesterday that's what I started doing. I'm interested in seeing the changes I'm able to make today. I don't really need to leave the house, except to run to the grocery store for more produce so it should be a good day to clean.

*CCDG* Home Sweet New Home

As of yesterday, I am now a part of CCDG, Salem's roller derby league. I'm so excited, the girls are so welcoming and I can already tell it's an amazing fit. I posted back in December about leaving FM...blah blah blah. My reasons are still valid, but I've proven time and time again...and again a few more times that Roller Derby isn't something I can give up. With CCDG's attendance requirements, my Saturday's are free to continue working towards my dream of owning my own business. So here's to some amazing new adventures and new friends!
