hello again.

Life gets busy.  And certain things get put on the back burner – like this blog.  🙂 

So to catch up…

Life mostly consists of three things – school, work, and family – mostly kitchen management.  Drake and I officially manage dinner and keeping the kitchen clean, and I do much of the meal planning and making of the main dish, while Drake often helps with sides.  It keeps me busy!

I think I have mentioned before that I was blessed with a job at a small salon in town.  I recently passed my one year anniversary there, and I have really been enjoying it.  I clean, answer the phone, and do other secretarial work.  Sometimes there’s time to study or read, which I always enjoy.  Often there are fun people I get to meet.  Today there was this ADORABLE four year old that helped me for a little while.  She was so sweet.

School.  School.  School.  That’s the other one.  So my midwifery school is going well. I am hoping to have it done in about a year, and then I can figure out where I want to go from there.  At this time, I am pretty sure that I don’t want to continue with midwifery, but I still want to stay in the alternative health world.  I am currently thinking about naturopathy, but we’ll see where I am in a year.  Who knows what will change!

So those are the big three.  I haven’t been doing much trying of knew recipes, or creative cooking, just because I have been so busy.  Mostly I am just trying to get a dinner that works with my food restrictions onto the table. 

Oh, and food restrictions…so I think I have written about not being Primal/Paleo anymore.  I started incorporating more grains into my diet earlier this year, and helped me feel better. Now I am avoiding red meats, dairy, and caffeine, which my doctor has me doing to speed healing.  It has pushed me to try new things.

A few weekends ago, my cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents came and visited.  We all had too much fun.  Love all of you – I am so blessed to have you all!

Aaaand last night we started dance lessons!  Drake and I danced together. So much fun. Looking forward to more dancing.  😛

Well, that is all for now.  See you around!

    1. Couples dances, like swing, cha cha, waltz, Texas two step, and more. Really fun! Looking forward to some fancier stuff, like turns. 🙂

  1. Hey, Allison!! I wondered what had happened to you! 😀 (In fact, I have intended on writing you a letter a couple of times, but never got around to it…)

    Sounds like you are busy as a bee…it’s good to be busy, isn’t it? 🙂


    1. Yes, I have been so busy. As a whole it is good to be busy, but sometimes I would like life to return to normal. Not that I have any idea of what normal is.

      I think it is my turn to write you, right? I haven’t been the speediest at responding – I need to work on that. 🙂

      1. Good question, “What is normal?” 😀 😀 In our house, I say we live in a state of “normal unnormalicy” (isn’t just how it is with three grandparents).

        Probably is your turn to write, but I could always write again… 😉

    1. They are TONS of fun! Drake’s a good dancer (well, we are both at the same level, but he’s a quick learner), so we have fun together. 🙂
