Happy New Year

Ok Here we GO...

   A new year and some new commitments. First I am and have been in the process of uncluttering our lives.
we have streamlined out electronics by getting down to an iphone each instead of an electronic organizer(old smart phone) and a cell phone to call and text. It also streamlined some of our bills and we did it on a budget by looking for used phones from people that were upgrading.

 I have gone through everyone's clothing and stored away what the little one could grow into and am giving away or consigning the other stuff. I still need to make a list of the kids clothing Needs like jeans with no holes and a proper coat for one of them and another needs new socks and so forth.

 We super cleaned the bedrooms by moving furniture and dusted and vacuumed. then we sorted the toys and removed the ones they no longer wanted or needed.

 We are now having the roof replaced and ripping out the skylights that have leaked and molded and YUCK I am going to miss the sunlight but not the mess and the sickness the mold causes. We will all be healthier for it! I still need to finish painting the kitchen cabinets that needed the face lift and finish the walls that were left unpainted so the insurance inspector could see where there was damage from the leaky roof.

 So as soon as those major things are completed we will finish what we started with the flooring and replace the now ripped up linoleum with some snack together laminate stuff. We will also finish building shelving over the deep freeze and install the water filter for the whole house so we can stop lugging water home in those giant bottles.

As far as Isaac and all his medical stuff is going we are attempting to get in with a couple new neurologists because his current Dr is just not working with us and I honestly get the feeling that he doesn't want us as patients. We have been doing an electrical acupuncture treatment that is similar to the NAET therapy for all of Isaac's food allergies and some outdoor allergies as well and he seems to be making good progress. He is not as sensitive to many of the foods that would cause his tummy to bloat and be rock hard or would just give him diarrhea. Right now our biggest problem is with gluten so please continue praying as we stumble through this mess and try to get the seizures and growth problems under control.
He has speech and Occupational therapy twice a week and he is loving it and learning soooo much he now speaks whole sentences (somewhat understandable) and he recognizes most letters and can count to 20. colors he is not so good at but we are working on that one.

 I have personally decided to commit to P90X again doing workouts at least 3 times a week to stay lean and tone up a little more. Over the last year I lost 6 inches in my waist and went from a size 14/16 down to an 8/10 just by cutting out most gluten and fake sugars. I have been eating more raw foods and really only eating meat with dinner. Oh and making sure I stay hydrated by drinking AT LEAST a GALLON of water a day.

  So here's to a new year full of opportunity.
