Long Time No See

Hello everyone!  How is life?  I know, I know.  It's been a very long time since I last posted.  So, let me fill you in. 

-Last Thursday (the 13th) was my birthday.  I love the timing of my birthday.  The fall leaves are in full color and I feel like there's a celebration just for me.  This year there were thunderstorms, so I figure God was playing on the drums as part of my party.

-There are MAJOR things happening with the business.  I'm doing some mild restructuring of things, and I'm looking for a kennel to work out of.  Still, though, there are other more exciting things.  Which reminds me, I need to call some family members!

-Running is still going really well.  I've had a couple of setbacks, though.  The biggest one happened this past Monday.  I suppose I slept funny, but when I woke up I couldn't even turn my head to the side my neck hurt so bad.  I ended up canceling all my appointments, putting on the neck brace, and popping some Valium in an attempt to make the pain go away.  Still, though, I was in tears.  Five days, a chiropractic adjustment, and a massage later I'm feeling much better.  I'm still icing in the evenings just to keep inflammation down, but I will probably resume running in full by next Monday.

-Speaking of health issues, Hans and I have decided to try something new.  One of the blogs I read, Skinny Emmie, has mentioned that she is doing the Paleo diet.  At first I just wondered what on Earth the Paleo diet was, so I did some research.  The basic rules are no gluten, no processed sugars, and no dairy.  In other words, NO PROCESSED SUGARS.  After reading up some more and searching through the book store, I found a book that I really like: Everyday Paleo.  Anyway, there's a whole 30 day meal plan in there.  I'm worried, because I'm pretty sure that Hans won't like most of it, but he's a trooper and he's willing to give it a shot.  After 30 days, if we don't like it, we'll stop, but for now I'm excited.  We're going shopping and preparing food on Saturday.  Monday is the big start day.  Woot!

Well, that's pretty much all the big news for now.  I'll keep y'all updated as things progress!
