A taste of my new reality?
Friday, June 29, 2012      6 comments

I talked to my mom last night for the first time after writing her the letter explaining that I may have celiac or a related condition. It went a lot better than the last time I tried telling her I thought I had trouble with gluten. She wanted... Read more

I walked in the door after work and my husband did the happy dance. On July 9th he starts training for Pitney Bowes. The first three months I think are full time for training, then three months of part to 3/4 time and after that it should go t... Read more
Water day and peanuts

Today I'm functioning much better than yesterday so I'm back to blogging. When I was little I had reactive tonsils, where any little thing would make them swell and I'd get tonsillitis. I seem to have outgrown that and still have my tonsils. ... Read more

The pit bulls who killed the cat are on the vicious animal list and the owner has until Friday to get rid of them. My supervisor is devastated and afraid to let her boys play outside. Now it looks like we're going rafting this weekend. I ... Read more
Sunburn, road rash, and other misadventures

What a long day! Hopefully I can move tomorrow. I had my first experience in a wave pool. Interesting, but my leg is nicely scraped up. Landed on the cement floor twice. Ouch. Of course it's the same side as the banged up toes. That's fun... Read more
Change in plans

My husband's best friend won free tickets to a waterpark and he is taking us tomorrow. Never been to one this big so I don't really know what to expect. I wasn't planning on going to a waterpark until I reached my goal weight, but that's okay.... Read more
I am way too soft hearted

I just found out that my supervisor's cat was killed by two pit bulls this afternoon and I can't stop crying. I babysat her two boys and the cat for a week in March and fell in love with him. He was a very sweet and patient cat (with two small... Read more

The toe(s) seem better. The swelling is down and the bruising is minimal so I don't think anything is broken. I did worse when I dropped a bowling ball on my foot a few years back, and before that I ruptured all the ligaments in my foot from wa... Read more
Did I really forget I was a klutz?
Thursday, June 21, 2012      8 comments

Somehow it slipped my mind that I am, and always have been, a klutz. The huge bruise on my leg should be a good reminder. No, apparently not good enough. I couldn't sleep last night because it was too hot so I decided to move to the couch by ... Read more

Thanks everyone, I'm doing better today. I got out of work early, so I came home and instead of just sitting and relaxing I immediately cut up a pineapple I bought and forgot about. It's very ripe and very sweet. I had to cut my husband off s... Read more
Where am I?

I feel like I am losing myself. I have always had a problem with worrying too much. I over think everything and forget to enjoy the present. I thought I was getting better when I started this journey, but these past few days I seem to have lo... Read more
Storms - external and internal
Monday, June 18, 2012      3 comments

Woke up during the night to a nice thunderstorm. We need rain so it's ok. Of course, the cats are hiding now that the evening storm is going through. Too bad the storms bring headaches. Time to let my mom know that we're going with the a... Read more
Father's Day 2012
Sunday, June 17, 2012      2 comments

For the first time I can remember since I was 8 I went to church on Father's Day. My husband wanted to go, and since that is a big change in him, we went. It wasn't bad at all. This church didn't make a big deal out of Father's Day, like I kn... Read more
Goosed by a goose
Friday, June 15, 2012      2 comments

Found a very hungry and brave flock of young geese today at the wildlife sanctuary. I wasn't feeding them fast enough so they decided to try to eat my pants, eat right out of the food bag, and then eat the bag. They were so intent on trying to... Read more
Father's Day
Thursday, June 14, 2012      4 comments

I think I have figured out why I am so down and stressed this week. I hate Father's Day. My dad died when I was seven and the following year at Sunday School I was forced to make a Father's Day gift. I remember telling the teacher I didn't wa... Read more
