This and That

Let's finish up from yesterday first. The dress to the left is the new bridesmaid dress. Gorgeous, huh?

This is a cute piture of Nate wearing his daddy's hat and striking a pose in his swimming trunks.

Now, I didn't get any knitting done last night and I will tell you why (for those who are only looking for knitting come back tomorrow or so). I have fibromyalgia. I don't usually let it affect my life to much. By this I mean I am stubborn and keep doing things I shouldn't necessarily do. I am trying to listen to my body more, but sometimes life happens and well I suffer the aftereffects. So, 4 days of funerals + travel + no willpower = sick girl. I went off my diet which is not for weight loss (cause I think it is pretty obvious from the above picture that I really don't need to lose a whole lot of weight) but to make me feel better.

I have sensitivities. Specifically I am sensitive to yeast and yeast by-products. So I completely caved on my normal diet and had all kinds of things I shouldn't. I am now trying to clear my body of these toxins which is why I feel horrible. My muscles ache (similar to the day after you have excerised for the first time in ages) and I can barely think.

On the whole, I have it a lot better than many people with fibro. I can work and function day-to-day without many problems. There are many out there who can not.
