Trying to Not Lose Hope
I haven’t talked this week about my “issues”. That is about to change. Except for the little taste of smoke salmon on Sunday, I have been meat free, and I know I have been gluten-free. But I have had a horrible week. A few late nights, a few days sitting quietly and then not quite making it to the bathroom. When things calm down, I am left with open sores that make it difficult to move and do anything. I am not ready to give up on giving up meat. I know it takes at least a couple of weeks for a body to adjust. But I am feeling a bit down.
At least this morning……after a brief session of running to the bathroom, I was able to go to Woodburn to pick up my mom at the hair salon. We then went to a couple of stores so I could get things for tomorrow.
Tomorrow is the Miller Christmas. My LL’s brother’s and all the family, getting together for a bit of fun. I bought a few things for gifts and ingredients for food to share. So I am hoping to bake in a while, but I was thinking. I bought ingredients for cookies and know if I start having problems….Bailey makes great cookies and can take over for me.
I am really looking forward to tomorrow. My nieces and nephews have been busy over the last few years making babies. I haven’t met a couple of them, so it is really important to me, to be able to go. The party is a couple of towns over in Gervais, so if I have problems, it should not be a problem being a little late or having to leave a little early. So, Again,……..wish me luck.
