I've really been lagging on the posts the past few weeks. I haven't had the energy to post, which is not a very good excuse, but all the time, preparation, uploading, and typing just hasn't been very appealing.
About three weeks ago, after eating some popcorn chips, my stomach starting hurting. I don't really have stomach problems, so I brushed it off and went about my day. Well, that 'stomach ache' never really went away, so I've been in and out of doctor's offices for the past three weeks trying to figure out what's wrong.
So far, nothing has been determined. I'm waiting to see a gastroenterologist this week, so hopefully I will finally have some answers.
Needless to say, I haven't been very comfortable, so I haven't been cooking much. I also haven't been exercising, which is driving me crazy, but I just don't feel right. On top of that, it seems that different foods seem to upset my stomach even more. It feels like a giant side ache, on both sides, and the pain radiates to my back. Occasionally it feels like my intestines are being twisted around and stabbed with a knife. Fun, right?
So while that has been going on, we also have been in the process of relocating to Los Angeles. My husband recently got a new position in LA, so we've been busy with that whole process. Last week we stayed at the Beverly Hills Hotel (we stuck out like a sore thumb in my tiny honda civic) and looked for a place to live.
It was a fun experience, we'll probably never be able to afford that place on our own, so we took full advantage of our stay there. By 'full advantage', I mean I ordered coffee from room service. LIVIN' LARGE!
We found a place to live, a cute little duplex in Silverlake, and we will be moving the first week of June. It will be a fun experience, though I'm sad to leave San Diego. My job, friends, and comfortability of our life here.
Anyways, that's the reason why I haven't posted lately. So this week I'm going to try and do a post or two, from recipes I came up with before I got sick. Hopefully once we find out what is wrong, I can get back to my normal eating routine.
