a not so exciting Friday update

Life has been chugging along and as I predicted my time to leave Ohio would soon be here. I still have the rest of the month but I am going to Chicago over Memorial Day weekend so there goes a big chunk of my time. I am headed there for a friend's wedding and of course to see many more friends before I leave the midwest. Can't wait! After my visit I will come back to Ohio and pack up the car and leave around the 1st of June. 

I have been sick the past couple of days so trying to get over this. I am not sure if it's allergies or a cold or perhaps I am just allergic to Ohio. I laid around for one WHOLE day which is essentially like torture to me. I am still trying to keep it low key so I can kick this thing for real and don't have to be a sicky mess when I head to Chi-town. It's always a challenge for me to slow down but it's imperative when trying to heal. One good thing of the whole sickness is that I discovered the Neti Pot. Yes it looks and sounds scary but it works for me and it could work for you too! I was able to use it properly on the first try so it can't be that hard? Just check out the online videos of how to do it here... . And to avoid amoebas (don't ask), use distilled water not from the tap. 

My sickness also coincided with the last day of my cleanse. I tried to stick it out but I was hungry for Nanny's famous homemade toast and the thought of making more kitcheree made me more ill. This particular cleanse was not for me. I was eating rice porridge ( for breakfast and then kitcheree ( for lunch and dinner. I was allowed snacks of apples and sesame seeds during the day. There was also a digestive tea ( I drank and was allowed as much room temp water as I wanted (don't be jealous). Again this wasn't the right cleanse for me but it works for a lot of people and has for thousands of years, not sure what my deal is. Maybe my body is saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
