Hi, guys! Happy Monday! 🙂
So, we’ve had fairly the rollercoaster journey within the Haupert family recently, particularly with regard to our well being. I’ll offer you all the highs and lows in a second, however, first, I needed to share some enjoyable stuff from our weekend!
HIGH: Running with Quinn! Quinn and I took Murphy for a stroll on Sunday morning. I used to be carrying pajama pants, a fleece pullover, and flip-flops. Quinn was decked out head-to-toe in operating gear. He stated he’d run whereas I walked Murphy, and issues went as deliberate for about 5 minutes.
Running alone was enjoyable, however operating with Mumma could be a lot extra enjoyable! So, Quinn began to ask me repeatedly to run with him. I couldn’t run with Murphy (particulars beneath), and I wasn’t actually dressed to run, which Quinn observed, after all. He mainly instructed me to get into exercise gear and placed on my operating sneakers. He even stated he’d “come with me” (apparently to verify I obtained the job accomplished). Long story quick, we dropped Murphy off at dwelling. I become my operating apparel, and Quinn and I ran a couple of mile collectively across the neighborhood. If you discover from the picture beneath, he’s carrying sweatbands (headband + wristbands), which he used ceaselessly to wipe his forehead. Haha!
On the run, we talked about triathlons since Quinn’s favourite actions proper now are swimming, biking, and operating, and he was undoubtedly . I’m wondering if the little dude is a future triathlete?
HIGH: Eating Pixie Dust rooster wings and watching the Patriots recreation. Ooook, who am I kidding… I didn’t care in any respect in regards to the recreation, however the wings had been wonderful! A buddy instructed me about them at a get-together on Saturday night time, so we took a particular journey to Whole Foods to purchase a bag. (FYI: They’re within the ready meat part.) And, my goodness, these wings are unimaginable!! So, so, sooo tasty and really easy to make! I’ve heard Whole Foods additionally makes Pixie Dust rooster breast and a Pixie Dust seasoning, which I’m ALL OVER! Definitely preserve a glance out for them the following time you’re at Whole Foods! SO. GOOD.
Speaking of Whole Foods…
HIGH: I lastly obtained to make use of my mesh produce luggage! I’ve been procuring at Trader Joe’s recently, however shopping for little or no produce since discovering that not all plastic might be recycled. I do know… perhaps I reside underneath a rock, however I assumed it may till just lately. Know higher, do higher, proper? Anyway, I purchased new mesh produce luggage and stocked up on recent produce at Whole Foods yesterday.
Ok, now onto a few of the “lows” with life recently. Whomp whomp. Of course, I’ll throw in some “highs” as properly as a result of we don’t want all of that negativity on a Monday morning. 😉
LOW: Mr. Murphy has been coping with some painful neck and again points. A few weeks in the past, he began to behave actually bizarre after which yelped in ache after we tried to select him up. We took him to the vet the place he was evaluated after which prescribed ache meds. Murphy is slowly, however certainly getting higher, and *hopefully* the ache will not be one thing he has to take care of long-term. The vet thinks he probably damage his neck and/or slipped a disk in his mid-back. It’s arduous to know for certain with out an MRI, however we’re hoping numerous R&R and not leaping off our mattress and sofa will assist him heal. Right now, the pug is quarantined in the course of the day (mainly, blocked off from the lounge). And, at night time, he’s allowed to sleep in mattress with us, however we supply him up and down the steps. Even although he’s not feeling 100%, Murphy nonetheless does what he needs, like sleeping in freshly cleaned laundry. Pug glitter all over the place!!
LOW: I’m nonetheless coping with a flare and my gross mucus-y cough is again. Ugh, it’s been a “fun” few weeks to say the least, particularly attempting to get the data and meds that I must get higher. The video beneath explains a few of my “wtf moments” I’ve had with docs and medical insurance recently. Blah.
HIGH: The LDN arrived on Saturday! Thanks to an superior Instagram follower, I discovered a neighborhood compounding pharmacy, who crammed my prescription for a fraction of the value. Woohoo! I began taking it instantly and haven’t seen any modifications but, however it will possibly take as much as three weeks to see if it has any have an effect on. I’ve truly heard LDN can take months to totally work, so we’ll see. I’m attempting to not get my hopes up, however I haven’t been in a position to kick this flare since May (post-colonoscopy). FYI: I’m giving LDN a attempt to see if it helps get me out of this flare as it will possibly assist regulate the immune system. The analysis is definitely very promising, so I hope it really works for me!
And I’ll go away you with another excessive! 🙂
HIGH: I found this Fly-By Hoodie from Brooks, and I’m in love!
