Thirditis

One of the things that bugs me the most is when a blogger I really enjoy suddenly stops posting.  For days, weeks, months, years (?) there is just... nothing.  And I always wonder, what happened?  Why?  I'm so sorry that I became that person. 

I really thought I would never stop blogging.  I love doing it.  But then I got "Thirditis". 

"Thirditis" is a disease that I made up.  Here are the symptoms: I'm in my thirties and I had my third child, and I moved for the third time in three years.

But in all seriousness, my life has had some drastic changes in the past year and a half.  

Life with 3 Littles is wonderful and exhausting and I feel like it is a constant juggling act.  But God has been gracious, especially by blessing us with the most precious, joyful little GIRL!!!

When our baby girl was only 6 weeks old, we bought a house!  In the country!  We love it and could not be happier.  We are so blessed to have a home of our own where we have been planting fruit trees and raised garden beds.

BUT -
We have (almost) no internet!  We live in such a remotely populated area that we can only get dial up internet or limited internet through our phones.  Needless to say, it makes blogging difficult... especially since I have to upload pictures at the local library.

And lastly, I'm learning to live with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. 
(Unlike Thirditis, this is a real disease.)  It is an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid gland.  I'm working on healing my body and hope to restore my thyroid function, but this is a very slow process.  And in the meantime...

If you thought I was a health nut before...
I've been making a lot of diet changes to help with my thyroid and immune problems.  It is making a big difference, but I spend a lot more time in the kitchen.

What has not changed?
We are blessed beyond measure.  God is good.  God is faithful.  I thank God for His mercy and grace!

I can't commit to updating further, but at least this way, you won't be left wondering.
Blessings to you, my readers.  And thank you, with all my heart.

  1. So glad you updated even if only to explain why you haven't been posting. I expect poor internet connectivity is a mixed blessing -- at least there are days when I think I would be more productive without it. ;)

  3. Congratulations on your little girl and your house - and all the blessings that go with them :)

    I totally understand the dial-up issue. We had it for many years when it seemed like *everyone* had high-speed internet. The most frustrating part was that we didn't have cell phones, so we tied-up our landline for hours when trying to do research for homeschooling... because it was just so slow. But now I spend more time online than I should... which is a reminder to myself that I've got to get going :)

    If you get a chance, could you share how you're using diet to deal with Hashimoto's? I have a friend who is dealing with it along with some other issues & maybe your experience would help. thanks.
