After the wedding has become something I think about a lot. For a long time, after the wedding seemed way off in the future and not something that I thought about. There were a million day-to-day things that I had plenty of time to do before the wedding. But now, after the wedding is a mere 25 days away! After the wedding, I’m going to do this, after the wedding, I’m going to do that. In reality, after the wedding, I’m going to my honeymoon in Hawaii, so I guess I mean after the wedding festivities. Don’t get me wrong, I am absolutely 100% looking forward to my wedding day and my honeymoon. But a part of me, and I know Jason feels this way too, just wants to get on with our lives.
That was a long-winded way of saying that after the wedding, I’m going to make an appointment with my doctor to discuss my stomach issues. I had a really bad stomachache last week. So bad that I could barely sleep and I had to keep leaving the room (uh…so Jason wouldn’t suffer, if you know what I mean.) I actually know what triggered it too. I’m constantly trying to give up Diet Coke (another trigger, but not what caused my pain) so I decided to buy some soda water and mix it with a splash of POM. Tastes good, tears up my stomach. This has happened before. I’m really going to try to make a list of foods that hurt me and give it to my doctor. I’m pretty sure it’s IBS. My mother was tested for Celiac Disease (she didn’t have it) and thought I should be too. I hope it’s not that. I don’t think it is though because these are the foods that I know give me pain.
• carbonated beverages
• fake sugars
• beans (I need to buy some beano because I’m not eliminating beans from my diet)
• alcohol (although that might just be a hangover)
Recently, I asked Jason if I seem to have more stomach aches than the average person which he responded to with a resounding YES!! I’ve eliminated soda since the bad tummy ache last week and have felt better, but still a little bloated and gassy.
I made my first home cooked meal in my new house! Check out this counter space! There’s way more than you can see in the picture!
I love it! If you knew how little counter space we had in our old kitchen, you’d totally understand why I’m using so many exclamation marks. Seriously, Jason and I couldn’t both be in the kitchen without getting in each other’s way.
I made a Mediterranean Frittata. It was pretty good but took a really long time to cook.
Bad lighting and bad dinnerware. I had the bright idea of getting rid of all our old plates during the move because I saw that someone had purchased new ones for us on our registry. Except that they haven’t come yet. And I ate the frittata with a spoon for the same reason. OOps.
