Life has been crazy here. We got back from vacation and leapt back into daily life. December had deaths in the extended family, the holidays and my mama having a stroke. She seems to be doing better though.
We have pretty much mastered gluten free cooking now and I've been able to learn to bake gluten free breads. I am using the bread machine more often than not for ease, but with us eating less bread a loaf lasts long enough I usually end up curbing or crumbling the ends and freezing them. Restocking the pantry with gluten free flours, grains, etc was expensive, but I was able to give the other supplies away so all wasn't lost.
I've done a little reading, a little knitting, and general day to day stuff.
I've bee thrifty in some areas ..
Because of weightless I had to have a whole new winter wardrobe. I've used thrift stores whenever possible.
We've done this weird mix of frugal and not so frugal on hubby's gluten free diet.....frugal as in we rarely eat out because it is difficult, but the less frugal side the cost of gluten free products is higher. However, I consider it an investment in his health and he is doing soooo much better!
It's kind of odd to be able to sum up a month of posts that easily...lol.
