At the end of January, Kirk and I decided to try the gluten free way of eating. Kirk has had many moderate issues with his health lately. One night I was researching "stuff" and came across a long list of symptoms of which Kirk had about 15 of the 20. These were all related to Gluten intolerance. Generally, Kirk will argue with me about trying new "health" things. However, this time he was more than willing to try it. Within days his symptoms were starting to alleviate. He loves how he feels with the gluten free, but, he sure does miss his bread, and flour tortillas. I also decided to go gluten free with Kirk as it makes meal planning a whole lot easier, and have found that it actually has helped me with feeling better also. Apparently, gluten can do some nasty stuff to one's body. Okay, with all that being said, when we are on the road, we do tend to "cheat" sometimes. But, we are trying to improve on this.
On January 31, we FINALLY had a beautiful day! We could actually sit outside. It's the little things!
That weekend, 2/4 our RV park hosted a car show. This turned out to be a pretty big deal, with lots of people attending. The local Lions Club was selling raffle tickets, which we bought. I always try to support the Lions Club as they provided me with glasses when I was growing up. Our family was pretty poor, and could not afford the glasses, and the Lions Club stepped right up. A wonderful organization. I won 3 prizes with the raffle drawings, YAY me! Movie tickets, a tank top, and some kind of metal sign. I love winning stuff!
I'm embarrassed to even admit this, but here goes. Because of the crazy windy days, Kirk and I decided to go to the workout room at our park to get some kind of exercise. I was on the treadmill, and to make a long story short, wasn't paying attention, and "flipped" off to the side. OUCH! Other than a few bruises, and abrasions, and my pride depleted, I was fine. Thank God, Kirk was there to rescue me. Never went back there again.
