    You can pick your mate and you can pick your friends......... but you can't pick your family. Sometimes families suck.

    I went for a run in the forest park up by my parents' house and felt a lot better. Well, I felt lots better once I was out of work. Then I got my mind set on running and went for it. It was really fun and a great change of scenery. The new intervals were a bit trickier, I felt sore during them, but I knew the end was in sight so I kept going. I'm actually tempted to run again on Sunday! I'd take my parents' dog, but she isn't very active and I'd worry about wearing her out .

    I watched a bit of Harry Potter 3 with my family & ate dinner with me. Zucchini w/ onions, plain grilled chicken thighs (nice & juicy), and some grilled asparagus. Not filling enough. I had an apple afterwards and might make some applesauce now. I forgot to eat my hardboiled eggs today and they stayed behind in the fridge at work. Guess I have breakfast on Monday!

    You are doing great. You have a lot on your plate now and are handling it beautifully on your own.

    Maybe you could post on FB in a few weeks saying that you guys are planning your honeymoon thanks to wedding fund donations and if you still plan to donate here is the info.

    P, your encouraging posts always "read" to me. I can see you in a novel, being the supportive mother figure, soothing a figure in tears and offering them tea and hugs. It's very comforting to me . I guess my time reading as a child translates into feelings now.

    Good idea on the FB post. A kind of passive way to get the info out there without being pushy... Very appealing to me .

    All of my parents (in-laws & bio) helped move stuff this morning. I got a bit burnt out. This introvert does not like being in charge of moving things. It went fine. C is coming over soon to help me load up his van with some bigger stuff. I hope we can move the queen sized bed too. I'll spend tomorrow tinkering at the new place and the rest of the week unpacking a little at a time and LOTS of cleaning all around.

    I am hella sore from running yesterday and moving today. There are so many things I want to do but I HAVE TIME and I really need to rest!

    Time for some tea & waching something on Netflix.

    Last night was a Power Rangers evening at Crabbcakes Manor, care of Netflix. Don't hurt yourself laughing, now...

    I have a habit of mining the past for shows and never having really watched PR outside of one-half of an episode once, I didn't realize that there are like, twenty seasons, and just as many PR crews, and how ridiculous the whole thing is. Funny from me, because I watched Kung Fu Theater on TV growing up and loved it when the soundtrack and folks mouths got out of sync, and Godzilla and the kitchiness and all that. But my girls are hooked, and will be until every available episode is watched. Ugh.

    Power Rangers is a crazy franchise. I remember watching the original series! I didn't know it was still going for many years, until Hulky's nephew was watching it. Not nearly as awesome now, IMO. Keep it simple!

    I'm sore today, but it's not as intense as yesterday thank goodness. I took a bath with some epsom salts, listened to the second Game of Thrones book on my phone, drank tea, and then watch Alphas until I was ready to pass out (SyFy original TV show, kind of X-men lite). GoT is my running "music". It's going to take a while to get through these . Maybe I'll listen while I clean, pack, and un-pack too.

    My allergies are nasty today, but I think it's just from dust. Haha, my bandana is at the new apartment.

    Hardware store list
    -felt pads for furniture feet
    -sponge mop
    -bucket
    -small brush
    -(check my parents' house for polyurethane to fix the scratches in the floor from tearing up the couch)

    Grocery list
    -Eggs
    -butternut squash (at least 2)
    -breakfast sausages

    I admitted to Hulky's mom yesterday that I've never cleaned our hardwood floors. Growing up, we had carpet. Hulky did not clean floors until he had to Comet his laminate floors in the Army. We've just been sweeping and vacuuming here. We keep our shoes off inside. I have no idea what a clean vs. dirty hardwood floor looks like, but I'm planning on cleaning them all here before we leave with hot water & white vinegar.

    For wood floors and cabinets(ect.) a bottle of Murphy's Oil Soap is the stuff.
    But... follow the directions. A tiny bit is all that is needed. It's not a "more is better" kind of product at all.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Hulky's mom likes that stuff. I just finished cleaning the empty bedroom with hot water & vinegar. I had to towel dry after mopping to get rid of the streaks (ahem, so it got cleaned twice). Will the oil soap restore some shine to the polyurethane? It's of my unprofessional opinion that some of these rooms could use a fresh coat, but I'd like to do what I can to make them nice. Our landlady was good to us and I want to leave the place in nice shape (and we want our security deposit back in full!).

    Yaayyyy Hulky gets home on Saturdaaaayyyyy

    It's no wonder that I couldn't sleep last night. I have a lot to do this week. I was going to take everything we have in the basement over to the apartment tonight. I need to ask Coach about painting a portion of wall in one of the bedrooms, as I noticed some spill marks on it. Looks like someone splashed tea. It's a matte finish so I don't think it's going to clean off, but I may try some baking soda & a damp sponge. The 409 spray did not work. The spots I polyurethaned on the floor of the old apartment, well, whatever, it went fine. There are just a few shiny spots on the floor now =P. Okay, I need to make a To Do list.

    I downloaded the audio from this video last night to try and help me fall asleep. It was very soothing and I felt like my thoughts calmed down while I listened to it. I think I did doze off before the end of it, but I woke up around 1:30 AM after it was over. I fell back asleep fairly easily after that. I was too tired to run and it's drizzly today. Perhaps I can get out tomorrow. Tonight, I may try a guided meditation before bed. I really need to be sleeping well this week.

    Sigh, I got so stressed out this weekend that I started spotting. Not sure yet if this is going to be a full-blown period. It brought cramps along with it. I'm assuming it was the stress anyway. I haven't taken Vitex for almost two weeks, I think. I stopped taking it at the start of this current cycle after tapering off the week prior.

    I have not had the great gut improvement again like I did during the first few days of the SCD. I think it's because I have not had enough days of strict compliance. I think even if I stick with the SCD, but don't go back to the intro of just chicken soup, I will see improvements, it just might take longer. The mag citrate is more effective now, at least. I think I only need 400 mg daily. I think once I get some L-Glutamine, I will see more improvements too.
