Where did 2014 go? I can’t believe it is December already! I am still posting daily on Celiac-Disease.com, the Gluten-Free is Life Facebook page and Twitter, but as you can see, I haven’t posted here since July. In a perfect world I would be able to keep up with everything, but we all know that is not how the real world is. So what have I been up to? Let’s see…
Jon went away to college and is almost done with his first semester at Ohio University. We thought we were fortunate to have a wonderful gluten-free program in place for him, but it didn’t turn out like we thought. Jon was getting sick on a regular basis and had to get an exemption from the meal plan. He made the difficult decision to transfer to The Ohio State University, which is much closer to home and will help him be able to manage his gluten-free diet better.
I completed marathon #2 on October 19, 2014. This marathon went much better than my first marathon in 2010, though I don’t see myself doing another 26.2 any time soon. I love the half marathon and will be focusing on that distance for the foreseeable future.
Both dogs had a rough month of October. They both ended up hospitalized for 3-4 days (at different times…a week apart). Pippy had gastroenteritis and Chewbacca hurt his back somehow. They both came home on meds that had to be given around the clock and Chewbacca is still on “crate rest”. Thank goodness they are both doing better now. It also helps that they are very cute!

Thanksgiving was done all gluten-free except for the Crescent Rolls. We used HEB Honey Cornbread Mix for our Cornbread Stuffing and it was out of this world! While we don’t have any HEB stores here in Ohio, my step mother was kind enough to send us all of their mixes for us to try.
The personal training business is going very well! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoy my “job”. Working with so many amazing women on a daily basis is so inspiring. I even have a few clients who are gluten-free!
Hope you have all been well and have a wonderful holiday season!
