T-minus 11 days and counting!

In 11 days, we make one of the biggest changes of the year. We are moving into a bigger apartment and gaining a roommate. I'm still really looking forward to it.

I'm excited about the kitchen. I'm going to start working on my cookbook again - PCOS friendly recipes that are also allergen free. I've got my entire support group coming up with dishes they want to see. My goal is to have it out and purchasable before Thanksgiving. We'll see if I can pull that off. I have taste testers and photographers set up, so I really just need to create the recipes!

I'm also happy that I will have a dedicated space for my laptop, so I can start working from home. This'll allow me to do more for my PCOS support group, work on side projects for extra cash, and blog more. But... I'm also going to have trouble getting around to working because I'll be living in a house with two guys that love playing video games. Ones that are really excited when I play as well. I'll make it work.

I had an appt with my psychiatrist last week. I told him that I was concerned that the fun I've been having lately was related to a manic episode. I haven't felt normal in such a long time that I don't know what the difference between normal and manic is anymore. I'm not having any of the classic manic issues, like hyperactivity, racing thoughts, etc. But I do feel that I've been impulsive. It's really hard to learn to "live in the moment" and be bipolar. I never know if it's the start of mania or just being spontaneous. This move idea has all gone down in the last month, so that's pretty impulsive. But doc says that as long as I don't get to the point where I'm so focused on a video game that I skip sleep or work, or I'm not impulse spending away my paycheck, or getting violent, I should be ok. And I can always call him if I think something is wrong. And I've got Hubs to help watch. The new roomie is learning about my crazy side lately, because I was out of meds for a few days and I started acting a little different. One of the things I really like about the roomie is that if Hubs is being a pain, the roomie backs me up without my need to ask. I'm hoping that the meds I'm on will work for a long while and I can really enjoy myself this year. Here's to hoping.

I've been eating pretty well, and so have the guys. I just have to watch and make sure that their scrawny asses don't lose any weight! So far they are ok. Roomie is glad that I'll have lots of room to bake, so I'll fatten them up with sweets :)

I've got so much more to talk about but not enough time to type. I'll definitely have a new apartment update as soon as we move!
