    I hope your trip to Sicily is going well. I look forward to seeing an update from you soon. I get the same way with reading the journals - hence the reason it has taken me 2 weeks to come back to yours. I can't get it all done in a day and have learned to accept that and let things fall where they may. Take whatever time you need and know we'll welcome you back here with open arms when you return.

    I've been on a 2 week holiday in Sicily and it has done miracles for stress reduction .
    I've eaten (gluten free) pasta once (it was ok, but not more than that), I've eaten ice cream every other day, but was able to keep it primal for the rest. Starting every day with a barefoot walk on the beach, with my feet in the cold water (very primal!), lots of slow movement, lots of lovely time spent with my husband and children, lots of vitamin 3 (sun, finally!!!). I got hives (I had hoped primal/paleo would have solved that, but unfortunately it didn't - I get it from change in temperature, from cold to warm) but didn't let that influence my state of mind. It was the best holiday we had since our Easter holiday to Brittany (France) 3 years ago. And now it's back to everyday routine. I'll have to find some time to go through more than 700 pictures and post some on FB and my blog.

    I know I NEED a sugar detox, but my mind is still in holiday mode . I think I'll start one next Monday, so I have a week to get prepared. But Wineandcandy's dragon is with me right now .

    I am so glad you are back! Your holiday sounds wonderful, and I am sure it will be a lovely shared memory for your family. The sugar dragon will go away, or die. They are actually quite fragile.

    Ah, I found out that my lack of sex drive is for a big part caused by stress. I did not experience any stress during the second week of our holidays .

    Looks wonderful! I so miss walking barefoot on the beach. Maybe I can start again soon - I'm pretty cold-resistant.

    So, a lot is happening over here . After thinking about a career switch (again) I'm going to see if this is really what I want. It would mean going back to school (3 years). So I'll be a kindergarten teacher for one day on Thursday . And I'll be visiting the school on Wednesday afternoon. And then I think I can decide if this is "what I want to be when I grow up".
    Anyhow I realized more than ever after our holiday that my current job does NOT make me happy . I'm bored and stressed and this is not what I want to do the rest of my life.

    I have found the same with my job. Good luck with your 'tests'. Hopefully you find you love it and can commit to the change. I wish it was that easy for our family.
