SuperIma Sunday Check-in

Hey SuperImas!  It's that time of week again, where we check in to report on what we've adjusted in the past week to bring a little bit more sanity to our lives, and what our plan is for the coming week.  I really believe that without a plan to accomplish something, it will never happen.  So, this is my self-imposed accountability.

This week was the first week of Winter Break, which means that the boys didn't go to preschool.  At all.  Which is kind of insane if you think about it, but also kind of a relief because I wasn't schlepping to and from preschool 2 hours each day like normal.

I did have the frozen chili on the menu for this week instead of making something else, and it made it possible for me to escape to a coffee shop one on Tuesday night where I got about 1000 words of writing for fun done.  So, that was a win!

For the past couple months, I've been experiencing some unpleasant health issues, mostly food related.  I eat something, I feel miserable.  Two weeks ago, coffee and chocolate started really bothering me, and in the past week, scrambled eggs have caused me some SERIOUS discomfort, as in, I need to lie down from feeling so sick after eating them.  A couple of things make me think that it's a gall bladder issue - there's a family history, basic symptoms seem consistent with what I'm hearing/reading, and certain foods, mainly whole dairy and fatty ones, seem to be a trigger.  I've been dealing with it for a couple months now, and calling it the stomach flu or even food poisoning, but I think that the time has finally come for me see a doctor.

 This week, my commitment is to do whatever it takes to see a doctor and get a referral to someone who might be able to help me, because, you guys, this is getting pretty ridiculous.  I am afraid to eat because I don't know what will make me feel bad.  It's truly debilitating, taking me out of commission for hours at a time.  No one should feel like this unless they're in their first trimester - which I'm not.  Yeah, I checked.

Okay, enough violin-playing from this end.  Time for your SuperIma Sunday checkin - what are you going to do to make your life a little more sane this week?

You're doing an awesome job.  Way to go.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your stomach problems--ick! I hope you get to feeling better ASAP.

    Good job on getting away for a bit to do some writing. Keep it up.

  2. Definitely sounds gall-bladdery. Did you got to the doctor yet?

    Frankie yelled at me yesterday - like actually RAISED HIS VOICE -- because I don't take care of myself enough. I routinely skip breakfast, b/c I "don't have time". I stay up until 2 or 3 in the morning writing/blogging and them am a complete mess in the morning. Etc. etc. I was peeved at him for yelling (and may have yelled back), but he said, and I know he's right, that nothing else will get through to me. I need to make me a priority.

  3. Thanks for your comments, ladies. <3

    M- I got an appointment scheduled for Monday, B''H. In the meantime, yesterday I made some buttercream and tasted it - I mean, seriously, just a fingerful - and I felt horrible for hours. Same thing with peanut butter, or any fat, or eggs. So I hope they find something.

    I would be peeved at him for yelling. (Frankie? Raising his VOICE?) But he's right. I'm trying to ignore more house things and take a little more care. Check in here on Sunday. ;)



Thanks for your comments! They make my day.
