The Bad

I ended up not going to work today. I have been having a burning sensation in both my hips for the past two weeks and, since when I woke up today I could hardly get out of bed, I decided to go get it checked out (FINALLY). The doctor said that it was most likely due to inflammation of the bursa (aka Trochanteric Bursitis) and that I needed to take it easy for a week or so, and stock up on pain relievers. So here starts the week of being a couch potato. I will most likely catch up on some reading.

The Good

So my parents are the best!!!!!

Mom && Dad

That’s them. Aren’t they the cutest?

Anyway, where I was going with this?! Oh yeah … . For Christmas (yes, yes I know Christmas was like a month ago, but mom just bought it and sent it to me) mom & dad  bought me a crock pot. =) We have named it Crocky.


There you go, that’s the new addition to our family. Now I don’t have to worry about the kitchen not being done and I can start the Paleo diet. Mom said that she was going to also send a recipe book, but she ended up sending me a list of online sites. Hopefully tomorrow I can put them all up on a blog to share with all of you. I will make sure I differentiate betwen Paleo and non-Paleo crock pot recipe sites.

I will be using Crocky this weekend and most likely will start by doing one of Holly Woodcock’s crock recipes. Go ahead and check them out.

That’s it for today.

Have a wonderful rest of the week.
