Something Funny Is Happening

When I got sick last Sat. night, I wasn't *too* alarmed; obviously something I ate disturbed my insides.  It's nothing new (though I haven't reached that level of being sick in quite some time - I had to call in to work the next day. I also checked the ingredient list and nothing posed as any red flags).  But things haven't been the same since.  I still can't eat very much at one sitting and sometimes when I do I get pain in my abdominals.  I've had this before, but I can't remember why; I don't think my doctors and I could deduce anything from it at the time.  The funny thing is, even though I'm not eating much, my sugar hasn't severely dropped or have been having many bad spells.  When I feel I need to eat, I have a bite of something, or snack on a few nuts... and that'll do me.  It's like.. I'm changing.  I'd rather not be changing with pain, but whatever.  I wasn't able to make it to Mass this morning, which upset me a bit.  I was out the door and at the bottom of the stairs (I was quite defiant on going, despite the pain I was having) before I realized I wouldn't be able to go.  When I went yesterday at the 12:10 Mass, there were all these.. old people.  Heavens, there's more younger people at the 07:30 Mass than there is at noon.  Don't old people get up at like, the crack of stupid?  I didn't get it.  I was the minority - I felt so weird! Lord knows what we'll do when all the old people die in our church - they make up 3/4's of the congregation!

No-meat Lent is going well...until I sat across from a co-worker yesterday who was eating a burger.  Red.  Meat.  *wipes up drool*  I seriously couldn't look at her.  I'm like, "I'm not being rude, I just can't look at your burger".  lol.  The swearing?  Well, I'm making a conscious effort to reduce it, not quite eliminate it completely.

It's dreary here this morning, overcast with rain.  Supposed to clear up this afternoon and I'm looking forward to that as we attempt to reach 7*C.

I have a friend coming in from out of town today and we're going to (all you can eat) sushi.  Heavens, I don't know how I'm going to do "all you can eat" when I'm barely eating.  But, I love my sushi and it's vegetarian, so I'm all over that.

Next week I have some vacation time I'm using up and since I can't afford to go away, I'm staying home.  I have a TON of stuff to get done around the apartment, though.  Papers to file, old papers to shred, more things to get rid of (maybe) and perhaps some good old fashioned spring cleaning.  I can't tell you the last time I really got in and washed my windows, never mind my floor (don't judge - it's one of my least favourite tasks, but the OCD in me is starting to get a little twitchy).  I'll be doing some accounting and trying to figure out some numbers about my brothers car/leasing a car.

Babu's curled up on the ottoman, snoozing away.  I have some classical music playing and we're just vegging out.  I think I'll go tackle some dishes.

I hope you're feeling better now. And don't worry about the Lent slip-up with the chicken. God knows that your heart is in the right place and I'm sure He will forgive you if you go right back to the diet now!
