So What Wednesday

Tonight I am participating in "So What Wednesday"...

So what if...

I had grilled cheese and soup for dinner. Two nights in a row.

So what if...

I throw my whites in with my color laundry.

So what if...

I have an obsession with polka dots. Put something polka-dotted in front of me and my heart beats a little faster.

So what if...

I hate talking on the phone. I think I stopped enjoying long phone conversations when I was about 14.

So what if...

I love junky magazines. Like In Touch or Us Weekly.

So what if...

I woke to the upstairs neighbors having a screaming match. With a lot of "F*** you's" being thrown around. At 7am. For a few minutes I thought we were living in the ghetto. I was trying to imagine what they could be angry about at 7 IN THE MORNING. Maybe they ran out of toilet paper. Or maybe one of them forgot to start the coffee. Just sayin...

So what if...

I sort of have a "blankie." No it's not a ratty old baby blanket and I don't suck my thumb still. It's a down throw that my mom bought me when I left for college. It's so comfy and it's been with me all years through the ups and downs. Just wrapping myself up in it makes me feel better. I don't think I'll ever get rid of it.

So what if...

If the Kohl's commercial with the baby "Daniel" turned "Danielle" makes me sad and jealous. Also, the time warner cable commercial with the preggo lady moving from room to room trying to get comfortable. Yup, jealous. They're just actors, but still jealous...

And that's all folks. My first "So What Wednesday."

Went to the GI doctor this morning. My mom came with me for an extra pair of ears. He's not convinced that I have Crohn's yet. Some labs came back showing "Crohn's like" evidence and other tests didn't. He said it'll be trial and error for awhile. Great. I have to have a small bowel series done in April and a couple more labs done. He wants me to try that over the counter Align stuff too. So we'll see. I'm starting with a new GI doctor in April anyways, so at least things will start looking up. I asked him if he knew anything about a link between endometriosis and stomach issues and he said it's definitely something to look into. I'm going to call my RE tomorrow to try and get an appt with the doctor. I need a PLAN! I like plans.

So what if...

I'm type A and always need a plan in place :)

Well hello kindrid spirit. I too throw whites in with colors (sometimes), have a sick love for polka dots, and even have a "blankie" of sorts. Shamefully it's something that I made earlier this year - but it's with the left over fabric from a blanket I made Dan - so it's sort of like even though we're apart we both sleep with the same blanket. I dunno...I'm a huge nerd.

I hope you get some answers soon!!!!!!

Did they test you for Celiaic Disease?

Lol, you're a riot!

Plans make me feel warm and fuzzy, too! I absolutely have to have them to feel safe and secure. But both of my children came in ways I never would have planned, so I now view "planning" in a different way. Just sayin':).

It's amazing how much doctors DON'T know!

I hope you get an answer--and a solution!--soon.

1. You've made me REALLY want a grilled cheese sandwich, which is bad because I'm not supposed to eat dairy

2. I LIVE for Us Weekly. I'm actually happy when there's a huge line at the grocery store so I have time to read it.

It sounds like you're finally getting to the bottom of this GI stuff. Hopefully it will be resolved by April...

I love your list of so what's. I think you should do this every Wed!!! So fun. By the way, your 7am wake up call not at all ok.
I am exactly like you and need a plan as well. That is the worst part of all of this, no planning ability. Hoping you get some answers and relief soon...
