However, having said all this, there is one thing that I can't quit collecting and that is feedsacks. Yep, I love them. My collection really slowed down due to the prices. My husband laughs and says, "I remember when you would only pay $1 each or $2 if it was special." Well, in the Midwest those days are long - and I mean long - gone. But recently I found a really good deal on them in an antique store and wound up with 41 of them. Whoever originally squirreled them away was someone who really intended to use them, as she had 5 of one pattern, 4 of another, and 3 of some and 2 of some. I was thrilled to find them.
Speaking of being ill, I just got over a bad cold and am still getting over pancreatitis. It was not fun. I have autoimmune diseases and there is a form of pancreatitis that is caused from your immune system running amok. Oh, goodie, another one! I have been following a special diet for a long time and it is restrictive. I have decided to go with the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol for now. The first 30 days are pure torture, but I am hoping this is the right path. I pretty much bottomed out mentally when I was sick and thought that it would be impossible to give up even more foods, but other people do it, so it must be do-able. It is frustrating to try so many things to get healthy and then wind up being sick. But you have to pick yourself up in order to go down the right path when you find it. I would ask that all of you in blogland keep a good thought for me and say a prayer that this path is the correct one. Thank you,
