So last night I tried this new recipe, that I had to adjust cause I didn't have all the ingredients, and oh my goodness me, they seriously are DELICIOUS! They are mint chocolate chip cookies. And they are...GLUTEN FREE, SUGAR FREE (besides choc chips..there are recipes for home made ones but i just haven't gone there yet), DAIRY FREE, EGG FREE...seriously- they are sounding disgusting right? But somehow, with magic- they are delicious! It's still hard for me to believe. I will share the recipe soon I'm sure.
This Thursday is my next exam. If I pass this, I'll be half way there! I'm pretty fuuureakin nervous. I don't feel ready, to be COMPLETELY honest with you- but I'm pretty good at cramming like crazy and then brain dumping. It's pretty much how I got through college! I dunno...we'll see. Please if you remember, keep my stressed brain in your prayers this week that I will pass and remember everything!
Today I'm hoping that when Clay wakes up, he'll still want to do what he said he would a few days ago. I want to go to "Mesa Falls"...they are an hour or so from here, and is supposed to be a REALLY easy walk. The pictures show pavement and everything. So anyway- I really think it'd just be fantastic. I'm not gonna lie, I woke up this morning and my ankles felt stiff and not the best...but I'm so dang sick of staying IN THIS HOUSE. We need to get out more. Especially since it's like 70's today!
Last but not least, have you seen "Under Our Skin"?
This movie is about Lyme Disease. It's VERY informative and gives a way better picture than we are capable of giving you about what patients and doctors go through that are involved with Lyme Disease. Clay, me, and Clay's parents went to this presentation by a Lyme specialist that tours the states, and we watched this movie first then he answered questions and stuff. This movie is on Netflix Instant Play- so SERIOUSLY, if you have Netflix...you should watch it! I just want everyone to watch it so that they are aware of this HORRIBLE disease and what it can do to people. Please watch it. It would mean a lot to me and Clay. Oh, and when you watch it- they talk about Dr Jones, who is still being prosecuted today...anyway- our doctor worked with him for 7 years. You can actually see her in the background of one of the scenes at one of his trials, but it's way too hard for me to describe. I will warn you- this is a pretty depressing movie! I cried a LOT at one point. But the point is...it's just so important. And I feel like I need to say this since it's becoming hiking/camping season:
1. If you get a bulls-eye rash, this means you GUARANTEE have contracted Lyme Disease. Go to a doctor IMMEDIATELY and you MUST get treated with 4-6 weeks of antibiotics. If you do this, it will go away and you will be fine! DO NOT WAIT!
2. If you find a tick on you, and you don't have a bulls-eye rash...this does NOT MEAN you're safe. If within a month of finding that tick you have any of these symtoms, you probably contracted Lyme:
- Flu-like symptoms
- Joint Pain
- Fogginess of brain
- Basically, you will just feel "different"
So...do you all want to go camping now?! haha...sorry if I'm scaring anyone- but seriously, this stuff should be known. I just wish there was a way I could reach more people about this.
Well, it's time for me to study...BOOOO. It'll all be worth it. I will soon be a CPA! A Certified Public Accountant! That's pretty cool. Aight...cya!
OH yeah- one more thing. I'm kinda thinking of combining all three blogs. I'm so annoyed of updating each one...or whatever. I dunno. It's just annoying- and I bet it's annoying for any of you who follow each of them. Why not just have them all on one?! Sounds good to me.
