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.
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?
