Have you met Gus?

Usually, posts about pets top the charts if boring. must meet Gus or your life will be incomplete (or so Gus says.).

Gus believes he should be on our Christmas card.

He also believes that the dog wants to share her bed. And her toys.

And now he is demanding that I stop writing. Of course, he is the boss. Right?

Getting Healthy

2012 was an....interesting year. I spent the year getting healthy. Which means quitting all of the 42 bajillion meds I was on for whatever I have (take your pick... Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or the brand new name we just found out about--ankylosing spondylitis.). I've been going to acupuncture almost every week for the year and it has done amazing things for me. I also changed my diet--no gluten, no sugar and no dairy. Did I mention how much I miss BREAD??? But it has totally been worth it. Very little joint pain and I've lost 50 pounds! I'm going to be sharing recipes soon!
