and now we wait

Both for my test results, and for my stomach to calm the hell down and stop backflipping in my body.

I was at the lab services clinic at 7:30 this morning for my blood test that was part of my yearly physical. After discussing my celiac concerns with my doctor, he ordered a celiac screen as well. But, I gave up eating wheat in October (remember?) so last night I indulged in some gluten-y goodness.

Just me drinking a beer. Very exciting

All of last night, I felt fine. A little tipsy from drinking two beers, but quite alright. I went to bed feeling fairly normal, and even when I woke up this morning I was okay.

Given that it was a blood test, that meant fasting from 7:30pm to 7:30am. I grabbed a coffee on my way to work after the test, and made a bagel with cream cheese once I arrived.

Because my digestive system is just a theme park of fun, that’s when it decided to start acting up and reminding me that wheat is indeed still a bad idea. Ugh.

In other news, it’s strange to be back at work already; since Thomas and I were sick, and then my parents were in town, I feel like we didn’t get much of a break. New Year’s Eve was also a small bust, since Thomas was at work until after 1 in the morning so I didn’t get my midnight kiss either. (But, I did give him a big ol’ smooch at 9 the next morning!)

Starting to think of creative ways to get, well, creative. I want 2013 to involve more photos, more writing. The biggest question is how to best facilitate this — for me it’s usually a conundrum of time-but-no-supplies, or supplies-but-no-time. Thinking about carrying around my older camera body with a fixed lens in a messenger bag that will double as a purse. I always carry my phone and notebook with me, so the writing part’s not the challenge. Sitting down and writing is!

How do you invite more creativity into your life?

  1. With working from home, I did take a break during both holidays, but still checked in. I worked more “legitimately” today, but still haven't quite thrown myself back into things. Eh… tomorrow!

    I definitely suggest taking your camera with you everywhere! That's one of my goals for this year, too.

  2. There's always tomorrow ;)

    I figured taking my older body and an old fixed lens would be the easiest way, and definitely worth a shot! (hehe, shot…) My photos are crap lately, and the only way to get better is to take more.

    Man, looking back on this entry there's no FLOW! I hope that'll get better with practice too, yikes.

  3. I'm planning on making this a year of more creativity, too! Some of that is going to be more photos (mostly with my iPhone—the best camera is the one you have with you—but a couple of photowalks with the ol' DSLR might be nice too, maybe we should meet up for one?). I'm also hoping to do more knitting and cross-stitch and to learn some new tricks for both. I'm definitely hoping to add some creative, fiction writing to my regime too.

    Claire, Josh and I have talked about meeting up at a coffee shop for the occasional writing/reading/creating session. If you're interested, I'll keep you in the loop!

  4. A photo walk would be great! Text anytime after 5:30 on weekdays and let me know if you wanna go out :) I also want to do more knitting — I know exactly one stitch lol.

    Definitely keep me in the loop for the creativity coffee shop sessions! :)
