Hey all! I'm indeed alive! Yes I am! Thank you so much for all your well wishes.. it was a rough couple of days because of my head, but I think I'm ok now.
I got some of these from the doctor- it's the ONLY thing that works on my head! Seriously, drug me up Scottie!
Sadly my appetite took a nose dive and I literally have been snacking my way through the whole weekend. It's not a great thing because I know I need to eat up to get better! I tried to eat a normal sized meal last night and ended up with tea in bed at 8pm because my stomach hurt so bad. I've had some good snacks though!
The Funky Monkey dried bananas are the only way I can eat bananas. The other day I mentioned that I can't eat alot of fresh fruit- here is the low-down on that. I have Oral Allergy Syndrome. You may think this is a get out of jail free card for "other things" (GASP!!!!! Did she say THAT?!) But really -it's more annoying than anything. Strawberries, grapes (red and green), blueberries, pears, pineapple, bananas, and raspberries, and apples with the skin still on all make my mouth burn and my lips tingle! Click on the link for the Wikepedia definition of OAS.. I try to avoid eating those foods if they are raw- cooked (or dried) is ok for me. It really sucks around holidays (pies.....) and in the summer, who doesn't love freshly sliced pineapple on a hot day? Or at any other time... ummmmm strawberries dipped in chocolate and whipped cream anyone?? I stick with the fruit that causes me NO issues! Cantaloupe. Watermelon. And clementines. Yeppppppp. That's it! Needless to say, this causes a lot of drama while food shopping!
Alright moving right along to the fun stuff! Two things from the weekend- I saw a baby and the Peanut kicked ass in a Pinewood Derby!
Remember when I went out with my friends and was going to tell them about my miscarriage and instead my friend announecd that she was pregnant??? (new readers, this was on my old blog) Well, here is that baby. Look at that face!
The Peanut is going to make a great big sister one of these days!
Moving along again!
Every year the Peanut's youth group at church does a Pinewood Derby. To you non- moms with sons in Boy Scouts (i.e. all my readers...) it's a car race! Here they carve out cars out of wooden blocks (a church member makes ALL of them after the kids design them on paper) and the kids paint them up and then race them down this fancy track.
The Peanut won ALL three of her heats her car was in, but it was not enough to place in the top three- her car was not fast enough! Sheesh! Darn rules! I would have let her win!
Here is her car- the green bunny!
Well that's all for right now I think! Tonight is dance class.. I'm signing up for a workshop in April- to learn more salsa.... whoooo! I'm getting back to work in this dreary awful rain. Seriously Mother Nature... send some sunshine to NE, it's been raining for days!
