Better In Some Ways

My friend L. and I finally went for Sushi last night and it was so GOOD!  On my Gosh!  I’d be talking to her and in the middle of my sentences I’d  say “Hold on”  and take a bite of my Crunch Roll.  I know that was rude but it was almost like if I didn’t keep eating, the food would simply disappear by itself and I only get this once a year.  My favorite dish Uni had been devoured the minute it arrived.

As for my stomach issues..I guess it doesn’t matter what I eat.  Originally, I thought it was from gaseous foods but now I am not so sure.  This has been going on for a week or so and my stomach noises are embarrassing.  Of course I remember being in school and my stomach always made embarrassing noises especially when we all had to be quiet like during tests and I just wanted to hide under my desk.. but this time I’ve had diarrhea with it on and off as well and obviously it isn’t from the Sushi since this started long before.  I’ve tried changing my diet for the past few days and that isn’t helping anything at all.  I think it’s just made my system madder since it just seems to make my stomach louder and more obnoxious.

I must say it is good to be feeling a bit better.  I finally washed and changed everything on the bed and cleaned the entire room.  I am getting tired of being sick and  laying in stinky sheets.  I finally got out of the house two days ago for the 1st time (I think) since the 24th.

Lastly, (for this one) I’ve decided to term myself Christian verses Baptist.  I’ve actually been baptized Catholic and Baptist now.  I could keep going I suppose and be extra confident that I am a child of God.   I am at a point now where I am better off not as part of a denomination however I still have my beliefs.  I have been attending some on-line services.  One was from a local non-denominational church.  It was their Christmas Eve Eve Telecast.  I really enjoyed it and I still was able to fast forward through some of the songs, etc.  I wasn’t interested in to get to the sermon.  The other is one of my online sermons I usually listen to at Twickenham Baptist in Twickenham, New Jersey (I think).  The Pastors are awesome and the messages are fantastic.  Once again, I can fast forward some of the music if I want to however their choir is pretty good and the focus is on the message.  With on-line, you don’t have to drive anywhere and you don’t get sucked into the drama crap.  In this way, I keep my relationship with God.

A Bit of Stress

Yesterday was quite upsetting.  I am only allowed sushi once a year so I have to find a restaurant that serves Uni (Sea Urchin) which is my favorite.  My friend B and I had it all set before discovering the place we usually go to has closed.  We tried two more places that didn’t have Uni and wound up at Del Taco, my phone stopped working except for telling me per message that we hadn’t paid the bill.  My husband said we have not received one.  I called the company this morning (Virgin) and it turns out we/I will not receive a written bill and will have to Top Off every month on a certain date.  So, S and I will just work out the payments.  The phone itself was a bit expensive (not to bad) so I can consider that my B-Day/Christmas gift.

  Then, while driving home my right leg (Driver’s Leg) decided to get that terrible pain I get periodically that can get almost paralyzing so I had to pull into a parking lot and sort of march around for a bit before continuing home while praying the whole time.

This week is stressful as we are taking care of a dog for my husbands’ boss and it is a 1 and a half your old puppy mixed with Pit, Lab and ??  She has had no training and nearly knocks me down when she jumps on me.  She is like a child and  into everything and we have to keep her separate from our animals.  She spends most of her time in the back yard and I feel guilty because it is cold however she does have a heated doghouse.  She is constant ly chewing on bark or something.  Plus, i am walking my dog approx 2x per day now and he is getting worn out not being used to this.  This visiting dog is going home on Monday and I am on count-down.
