The Price One Pays For Eating!
Last night was the Blue and Gold dinner for our cub scout pack. The theme had something to do with America....I can't remember, all I know is I was painting stars onto flags made out of blocks of 2x6 wood for what seemed like forever! (Mark is the cub master, so I get to help) They were the centerpieces for the tables. Anyway, the night before Mark and I made a large potato salad to take, and Chase and Eli had to decorate a cake. (I think we put too much mustard in the salad....that is the way Mark likes it, but we brought a lot home with us!....Mustard Potato Salad anyone?! Mark and I are the only ones that eat it at our house, and I can't eat anything right now...so it is going to go to waste!) We were pretty much ready for the evenings events, thanks to a wonderful cub scout committee chair, Pam, and all of the help from the leaders, there really wasn't all that much to do. Thanks ladies!! : ) But something I ate at the dinner didn't settle well, and I have been sick ever since! I have a very sensitive stomach, and irritable bowel syndrome....no fun! I have been in such agony that I have decided eating food just isn't worth it! I never know what is going to set it off...well, that's not totally true, I know lettuce is not my friend....but I haven't nailed the other triggers, so I never know. I just hate feeling this way, and after being sick all night, I am exhausted! I long nap, and no food for the rest of my life sounds about right! Ugh! Meanwhile, there is work to do (thanks Jen!) and laundry and dishes and my family will want to eat tonight, double ugh! Somebody shoot me and put me out of my misery!! Unless you have ever had your gut turn inside out, you don't know what I am talking about....can you say PAIN!!
