This one is growing up….oh my.
I’m fixated for the moment on making crochet blankets. I haven’t finished a one, but I have several blankets started. I have this fantasy of giving them as Christmas presents, but we’re awful close to the end of the year to be making full blankets with that particular goal in mind. Stay tuned for what happens.
I’m finally losing weight again. I lost thirty pounds relatively quickly after Oliver was born, but I gained ten pounds back relatively quickly a few weeks ago. I upped my salt intake dramatically– I salt everything nowadays– and that seems to help. I’ve also started wearing my compression stockings religiously again. My blood pressure has been insanely low, but that seems to happen on the days that I haven’t gotten enough salt. The salt intake helps the swelling all over go down, too, thank goodness. I never thought salt deficiency would ever be something I’d need to worry about, but salt seems to help the postural tachycardia like none other.
We’re on day 2 with some weird rash on the big boys. They’re home from school because we’re just not certain it’s not contagious. They went on a hike in the woods on Monday, but the rash is still spreading even as I type this. They are covered from head to toe in calamine lotion! I hope for more answers later today, as I suspect we’ll make a second trip to the doctor’s office in as many days.
We’re on the cusp of a gigantic home overhaul, both belongings and organization-wise. I can’t wait for it to be done, but wait I shall.
That’s all I have for today.
