So Clay had the feared herx reaction. Ohhhh it wasn't nice. In fact, it was horrible! I hated it. I felt SOOOO helpless. He was in pain in a way he is not normally. I'm used to him feeling crappy but this was like...torture. He would get these pained faces that are so OBVIOUSLY not faked. And all I could do was stuff pills down his throat. Thank heavens, it only lasted a few days. He still feels crappy, but the intense pain is gone. We have pills to give him when a herx happens...but we still had to give him all his normal pills too...and so it literally felt like he was taking pills like every 5 minutes. Anyway- I'm happy to report that he is beyond the herx and on to work again.
I'm finding grocery shopping to be almost a daily thing for me these days. And I hate grocery shopping because I'm turning out to be one of those people. You know the ones. Who stand in the middle of the aisle looking at the back of the item for what feels like HOURS until you can figure out what is in it. Then sadly put it back on the shelf realizing you can't get it. I'm finding that just about every product in America has sugar in it. I'm also realizing this is why most foods taste so good. I had to make homemade spaghetti sauce last night for the first time cause guess what? Every spaghetti sauce has sugar in it! So I got tomato sauce- which doesn't taste like spaghetti sauce...and I pumped it full of Parmesan cheese, basil, and garlic salt. It didn't turn out too bad. In fact, after the first few bites I forgot that it was not as good as normal!
Also, is there ever such a thing as sugar-free yogurt? No. Or sugar free anything? Basically not. Wheat/gluten free has been a whole other challenge.
I'm hoping to experiment with agave, stevia , and honey. And a bunch of other grains and stuff.
I've been thinking something lately. The past few days. There have been some controversial issues regarding one of the talks in General Conference...and I am so grateful and PROUD that for me, no matter what the topic, once the Lord speaks, the debate is over. And in my world, that means once a Prophet or apostle speaks, the debate is over. People may call this blind faith, but it's not. Either you believe in Prophets, or you don't. I am so proud that I do and that for me, there is no confusion. If a prophet or apostle says something, I know that it's coming from God. I feel so blessed to have that knowledge and guidance in my life.
There was frost on my window today. I had to sit in the truck and wait. It wasn't a good start to the day. But I'm getting to that point that I always do in mid-october when I feel like...it's just time for Christmas already. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! I want to decorate and listen to music and watch movies. The only sad part is I probably wont get to make any yummy Christmas treats. Not too often anyway. Oh well. I wish I loved Halloween more. It just doesn't grab me like it does a lot of you. Maybe someday.
Oh yes- I'm happy to report that Dante survived the neuterization (real word?). He was so silly after he got home and was still on anesthesia. He just seemed....lost. That's really all I know how to expalin it. But it was cute.
Does anyone feel like Glee is like...inching and inching every week more towards ickiness? I keep feeling uncomfortable. And I don't like feeling uncomfortable. So unfortunate. And soon they are doing rocky horror picture show? From my knowlege of that, I'm thinking next episode they will be dumping the ickiness all over.
Aight. This was kinda boring. Oh well.
