It seems that the end of April and even into the first week of May I wasn't eating very well. I felt sluggish and bloated and just not my "skinny" self. I had recently bought a new water cup for work ($1 area at Target) and have been using that instead of my old water bottle. I think the difference in size and having to drink through a straw had made me start drinking less water during the day. So I decided that I needed to increase my water again and I started keeping track on my cup.
I really think it was the stress of moving that hurt me at the end of last month. I was eating a lot of fast food and just plain crap because we didn't have much ability to cook (at least the last week of April and into the first days of May). April was just a hard month. Car problems, having to move, not completely sure I wanted to move to where we were moving to, just a lot of stuff going on all at once.
Right now I feel so much better. I really do love the house we landed in, even if the kitchen is tiny (I'll have to take a picture for you, it's seriously tiny.) But the rest of the house is very nice, and I love the neighborhood, and the deck outside. Plus, I never felt settled in the Burlington house, we moved there because we HAD to, and even though we loved the house, we always knew it was temporary, even if it was a year or 2 years, it was temporary, this house is somewhere I feel we can stay awhile. It doesn't have that "temporary feel." We are back in Mt. Vernon and I don't need to worry about Damian's school (we never did tell the school district we were in a different town, we just hoped they didn't find out).
Even the library was a worry to me. I didn't want to go to a new one, and I didn't want my old one to find out we were in a different town. Now I'm back in Mt. Vernon, I just feel less on edge and it's good.
