First, I hit 50,000 words on Sunday, November 27th!!! I won my first year of NaNoWriMo and I feel an awesome sense of accomplishment! However, I feel like November was totally lost in a haze of Microsoft Word and sleepless nights (thanks Puca baby!). Can you believe how Christmas is creeping up on us? It feels like just a couple days ago it was so far away. Now Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas is less than four weeks away! I am really looking forward to getting our Christmas tree this weekend and figuring out how to keep a very willful almost-two-year old from destroying it and eating ornament hooks. I am also trying to figure out how to keep the spiders out of the house. Last year they took over and just the thought of it gives me the willies!
I am back on gluten and seem to be doing fine. I have not noticed an increase in headaches or upset stomach, so hopefully whatever was going on was a fluke and it will stay away! I am still eschewing cherries and walnuts though.
Here is my first back-to-normal meal plan =)
