Hey everyone! Hope you are all well! I wanted to say first of all that I’m so happy by the response my Pecan Pie Trio received yesterday. It was the first time in a while that I had experimented in the kitchen and was really happy with the result. I’ll explain my lack of food in a second but I just wanted to say that I’m really happy that you all liked the recipe
I’m sure you’ve noticed I haven’t been posting as many meals lately. It’s not because I’m lazy or busy or any other excuse like that, it’s mainly because I’ve just been having a hard time eating in general. I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been trying to get answers on why I feel so crappy all the time so I made another appointment with my doctor to try and figure out what the hell is going on. I walked in prepared with a list of symptoms and walked out with a prescription for extensive blood testing. She is basically testing for every autoimmune disease you can possibly think of lol. I went in to the lab to have my blood drawn at 7:30 am the following day to have a double digit amount of tubes drawn. That was fun, ha! I’m still waiting for the results to figure out the follow up tests that need to happen.
This all happened at the beginning of last week and I spent hours between the doctor and the lab. Wouldn’t you know it over the past few days I’ve been experiencing horrible stomach cramping and nausea. Then to top it off somebody hit my car on Thursday while swerving into my lane to avoid another car (I guess, I didn’t see that part because he was in an SUV). I’m fine and there wasn’t too much damage but it turned into an incredibly aggravating experience when he tried to completely avoid any blame in the situation. I understand it was an accident but at the same time he was making it seem like no fault when the accident between the two of us was his fault. It goes beyond that aggravation too but I’m not going to get into it in a public forum. I’ve said enough already lol.
So that’s what’s been going on and why my meals have been scant lately. I’ve been eating but nothing interesting or extensive so I just haven’t bothered to photograph it. However my inspiration and motivation has been renewed with yesterday’s success so hopefully I’ll be able to experiment more in the coming days.
Anyway, I can’t post this without any photos at all! I figured I’d beg for forgiveness for being a crappy blogger the past few weeks with some cute pics of the fur kiddies I’ve been watching for the past few days
I couldn’t pass by this scene without taking a pic of it! This is Eddie, one of the kitties. I don’t know how or why he decided to hang out in this position but he just stayed there for a while! I thought it looked so funny and I guess he was comfy. He’s such a handsome boy.
Here’s Tyler just hanging out and waiting for me to join him to snuggle. It’s been so nice being around him. He’s such a cuddlebug.
You have to love this face. It’s impossible not to. He’s the best!
Sorry to be a bit of a downer again but I figure part of the reason I have this blog is to discuss health. Sometimes the topic of health isn’t always fun but it’s life I suppose. I’m glad to have gotten the preliminary blood tests done though because hopefully we’ll be one step closer to figuring out what’s going on and one step closer to getting better. The car accident story was just a vent, sorry lol!
I hope that you are all doing well! I’m starting off this week feeling positive that the bad stuff is in the past and that good things are just around the corner. And hopefully the power of positive thinking will help me feel better so I can enjoy a giant birthday margarita on Saturday
Have a great night friends!
