Life, or something like it.

Hi there.

I’ve had an email or two from people who don’t follow me on Facebook wondering what’s going on since I’ve been quiet on the blog of late.  Let me try and share a bit so you don’t put out a Silver alert for me as of yet (although, my sanity?  Go ahead and issue an APB for that, kay?).

It’s back.

On July 9, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

I suppose if I were more awake, I’d find a picture of Ahnold, the Govenator, and make some crack a-la Terminator.  But I can’t due to the fact that my brain cells are pretty much dead right now.

If you’ve not read about my knife-in-gut problems, you can catch up on the main problem here.

Last night, it came back — completely out of the blue.

The strange thing is that it pops up while I’m sleeping.  Very odd how it pops up.  But whatever.  At least I brought one of my meds with me, but not enough to help quell the pain of lunch today — which was out and about because, of course, I’m on vacation.

Shit.  I hate my fucked up guts sometimes.  I really want the knife out of my guts right now, though.  Because they feel like I’ve swallowed a Kabar.

I have some Xanax called in.  Maybe that will help — or at least I won’t care.

Blogging from the road

The beautiful Nessa

The last couple of days, I’ve been out of touch in DC at a Swedish “thing.”  The nice thing was that I got to meet up with Sue C. and Nessa during my down-time.  I didn’t want to pay for the $13/day internet, so there wasn’t any blogging during those days.

I’ve only been home for a full day and we leave tomorrow.  This time, I get to bring the kids on a long drive (12 hours or so) to visit the grandparents in Kentucky for one of the last visits before they move out this way.  In the process, I’ll be getting together with a few other WLSers along the way — really my favorite part of the road trips themselves.

It has been requested that I do a post about what I eat and do while I’m gone, so I’ll try to do so.  I’m not really a heavy food blogger.. so I’ll do my best.

Take care, and take your vitamins while I’m gone!  I’ll be around to check emails, so that is likely to be the best way to keep in touch for the next week and half.

Sugar Management

Mary: The doughnut hut? What’d you do?
Marshall: Eat first.
Mary: You can’t sugar manage me.
Marshall: Then you should have no problem staying surly as you masticate.

From In Plain Sight

This past week has been pretty hard.  In fact, I think we can move beyond “past week” and include a few days beyond that.  A few migraines, stolen bank cards (which have left me very reliant on bank hours), police reports, sick kids, a birthday, planning for trips.. there’s a point in which the stress becomes too much.  Coping becomes paramount.  Exercise can only do so much, and you can only run when you feel well enough to do so.

June Challenge – Week 1

On June 9, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

So I knew my daily posting wouldn’t last.  At least I’m honest with myself.

And really, I should have posted this yesterday, so I suck even more than usual.  Sue me.
