Blog changes

Thanks to everyone who followed Training Because I Can! over the last nine years. This blog started with Addison's Disease, hypothyroidism and a crazy idea of doing an Ironman distance triathlon. My life has changed and so has this blog. I am using this blog strictly for Addison's Support topics from here on out. I hope to continue providing people with hints for living life well with adrenal insufficiency.

Idaho pictures

After over a decade of living here, I'm still surprised to see cattle drives going down the main highway's frontage road. I'm also surprised to see a horse pulled up at the front door of the grocery store with it's rider chatting away like there's nothing odd going on. My whining rant (totally unrelated to cows and horses) at the end of the pictures.

View from the highway. Big Hole Mountains in the background.

Another view from the highway.

Vancie, chatting from her horse, in front of the grocery store.

My whine: I think I'm a little depressed and badly in need of some goal setting an lots of running and riding. I've really slacked off in the exercise department because I have no goals at all. Not exercising makes me really tired and cranky but it's sure nice to have a break from being sweaty all the time. The migraines last week definitely have an impact on my mental state. They make me lethargic and depressed. Mostly I'm really going to miss Allison's companionship. I hate the thought of winter setting in and me being stuck in Teton Valley for the next 6 months all alone. It's a nice place and all but 6 months is a long time to be stuck somewhere. In addition, my son and husband don't seem to be getting along which makes things tough for me. Zane's being a challenge in his own right. My mom and her husband don't want us at her house for Thanksgiving unless we ditch the dog somewhere. We called around to kennels in the area and they're all BOOKED 3 MONTHS IN ADVANCE! So we've got a 20 pound, hypoallergenic, nonshedding dog that's well behaved and we're not alowed to visit because of her. She even sleeps locked in a kennel for 9 hours out of the day.

Calgon, take me away. I could use a vacation where I don't have to cook, clean or be responsible! Actually, that's a lot to ask and besides, I had one of those 4 years ago. Right now I'd like one good friend and a family that's nice to me.
