Chit Chat

Wednesday, our pet sitter came by and said goodbye to us.  She and I got teary not only about me moving out of state, but because of Princess passing away.  After her visit, our buyer had his final walk through.  He did it a week early due to a death in his family.  It was a bit difficult for Mark and I only because we are sad to leave our little house.  Our realtor put a sold sign up and it made things seem final.   The boys did not like it when I brought them home from school and that sold sign was up there.

Wednesday was also the day that I talked to my endo doctor via phone.  I told him the situation with my eating problem (I no doubt had frustration in my voice) and said that the PT has helped other issues, just not the problem with eating.  So he said that it is time to take a look inside and see what it going on.  Neither of us wants surgery, it has just gotten down to that.  Unfortunately, I cannot have it until June.  That means I have to live with this pain for 5 more months!

Thursday, I had lunch with two girlfriends.  Oh, it was so nice to get together with them.  Unfortunately for me, I had a light breakfast and I started to feel like I was weak.  Eating lunch made me feel better, but after doing so my tummy pain flared up badly.  I never let my girlfriends in on the matter, did not want to ruin a perfectly wonderful time.  Tomorrow, (Friday)  I am having lunch with another girlfirend.  I am probably going to have to skip breakfast in the morning so that I have room for lunch.  This whole senario is not helping the issue with my weight.  Do you see red flags going up?  I do, especially since I keep losing weight.  This is a situation that calls for the amazing wonderful work of God!

This weekend we will begin the task of packing clothing and various items for our plane trip.  None of us are jumping up and down for joy about the task.  In fact, I do not know how much is going to get accomplished as far as my DH is concerned.  As the day draws nearer, Mark has taken to sleeping.  There he lies on the couch snoring in front of the flickering light of the TV as life goes on around him.  It is his best way of dealing with stress.  Wish I could do that.

that song i posted probably isn't your style of music, but i bet the words would encourage you. Keep laying your burdens at Jesus feet. The stress and anxiety are so hard on your digestive system. Please purpose every day to posture yourself in a state of rest for your tummys sake. God be with you :-)

My husband has the couch-sleeping-TV-on thing down, too! I'm with you - that would be a great stress reliever, but it's just not an option for me. Praying about your health. I am so glad you got to have a fun lunch with girlfriends - that type thing is my free therapy :)

Outdoor Mom, I did try to listen to the song on your blog, but was having trouble with my DSL. Ugh! Thank you for the advice about my tummy, you are right.

Susan, thank you so much for your prayers. Your words are so comforting to me.

Becky, praying for your health and your move. God knows the plans he has for you. Jer. 29:11 is one of my favorite verses.
