Rough Seas

Hi Friends,
How are you? Happy Valentine's Day. I'm not a super big fan of Valentine's Day; it seems like such a made up, commercial holiday. Maybe it's partly due to the fact that our anniversary is also in Feb, and in comparison to our anniversary, Valentine's Day pales considerably.

Anyway, I've been having a rough go of it. Really rough. I feel ill, depressed, overwhelmed. I had hoped that cutting out wheat and sugar would help. I guess I thought I'd magically feel better while at the same time dropping 3 or 4 pounds and it just hasn't happened that way. At all.

Of course, I haven't been very successful at cutting out wheat and sugar completely, either. I did great on Friday and Saturday. Yesterday I ate a scone. Yes, a freaking scone. And then I got super duper sick. I felt like I had the flu. This morning I woke up with a raging headache. It didn't help that my wake-up call was a few minutes before 6:00a.m. My boys are INSANE. We even kept them up til 8:30pm last night in hopes they'd sleep til at least 6:30 this morning. No dice. Up before 6. Bleh.

We get the results of my MIL's MRI today and I just have a sick feeling about it all. I don't think it's good news. I'm overtired and can't seem to catch up on sleep. I miss my husband. I feel unhealthy; like my body is full of toxins. I have an appt in March with a specialist to look at my prolapsed bladder. I'm not sure if I've mentioned it on here, cuz it's kind of embarrassing. But it's one of the rocks weighing me down. It's a burden I carry. My body is only 32 and yet it's falling apart on me. Does this sound familiar? :-P

Anyway, I'm just trying to hold it together for now. I will try to stay away from wheat and sugar as much as I can, but I'm giving myself a pass for today because my handsome hubby left me with a few surprises this morning.

First, there were the hearts on the mirror. We often write love notes to each other on the bathroom mirror.
I purposefully stayed out of the picture. I had just woken up and looked eerily similar to Donald Trump. Except not as rich.


Anyway, then I stumbled out to the kitchen where I found this lovely surprise:

Those little heart notes spelled out "I LOVE YOU". I do love my husband. He is very sweet and romantic and thoughtful. And it did brighten my day considerably. We're going to have chocolate fondue tonight with the strawberries, cream cheese danish and some oranges. So clearly I'll be eating wheat and sugar today. But I'm not gonna go overboard. And I'll be back on the bandwagon tomorrow.

I hope you all have a good day!
