Camping this past weekend was pretty great. Got there a bit late on Friday, but the new tent was fairly easy to set up, so no harm. And there was freshly warmed cider after we were done. It was beautiful weather, and everyone was relaxed and happy. Dutch oven bread and apple cobbler were amazing as always, as was the rest of the food. Enjoyed playing with both puppies who were out for the weekend, and sitting around a nice toasty campfire.

Back to the grind this week. Another library job did not come through, asked for feedback this time, but haven’t received any. This week’s tech homework is on search engines. Apparently, not many sites link to Denison.edu. 😦 But thanks to friends posting links, I got my current news article post done for my foundations class.

This is a Homecoming weekend in Columbus, before the Halloween madness begins. Four parties in two weeks after that. With my tech class ending in the middle of all that. Wee fun!

And just so we’re clear, still horribly terrified of snakes, thanks Pete.

B&N is alternating between 4 and 8 hours a week for me now. Bookup stays fairly steady at one full day and two half days. We have two people working on our forum integration. I got the help desk set up yesterday, but there are two problems to overcome there as well.  I am moving forward in learning the Traffic Ultimatum system. I have not had much luck finding good options to play lately. I will check IBD again soon.

My health continues to be good, though I’ve been fighting the beginnings of a sore throat with fresh OJ, hot cider and Alkaselzter Cold and Cough. Yoga has been a great addition to my life, increased flexibility is already present, though I don’t get to go to the full class very often. This morning I didn’t groan at a single “take a vinyasa” as was my habit previously.

I am currently off all medications, though I do now have health insurance cards for the newest policy Rich’s company has adopted. I’m not sure I mentioned this, but I have a new GP-OB/GYN here in town, instead of having to run to Newark, and a clean bill of health from her as well. I see my RA doc soon, and need to make a Dentist appointment as well, they’ve been calling again.

Rich had a couple setbacks this week. Some trouble with possible hernias that he is getting checked out today. And a slight mishap in a parking lot between his car and an SUV.  All is well and being taken care of, insurance is a wonderful thing.

Coming soon: Cedar Point and MarCon

Had half a zag day for the Halloween party this past weekend in Cleveland. Lots of No Bake cookies, a few drinks, some bread and then Bacon Waffles and Bacon for breakfast. Mmmm bacon!  I’m feeling better about the whole thing. I’m sticking with it for the most part, but I’m not denying myself quite so much, or guilting myself for slips. I want to be as healthy as I can, but I also want to live my life happily. A little bread with my salad is okay, even if it’s not yeast-free or spelt. Some hot cider is not great for me, but it makes my throat feel so much better. Fruit and fresh juice is far healthier than chocolate or other candy or soda. I like vegetables and my tummy likes almond butter far better than peanuts. Need to work on some soup recipes(haven’t I said this before?) with the cold weather coming on. All in all, I’m feeling better about things.
