Fate, Don't Listen

Fate, don't listen to me, because I'm actively not tempting you right now.  The nausea has been improving.  So long as I eat something small every 1.5 - 2 hours, I seem to feel OK.  Bathroom issues also seem to be under control.  (Hey Fate!  I'm not tempting you or counting chickens or anything similar, so go somewhere else, OK?)

If things keep going like this, we're going to start weaning me off the pump this coming Monday.  We're going to wean really slowly, so I'm hoping that will minimize my body's need to feel vomitous 24/7.

Since things have been improving, I'm also trying to get back onto vitamins.  We're going with 2 Flintstones a day -- today I had Fred and Wilma.  Flintstones are especially appropriate in my case as, when I was growing up, I believed that the Flintstones were based on my parents (minus the talking prehistoric animals).

In cleaning the house progress, we removed two plastic shopping bags from the Room and went through them.  I designated what should be given away, trashed/shredded, or kept.  Those piles are currently in the living room.  This seems terribly inefficient.  We used to have two shopping bags full of stuff in a room -- now we have piles of stuff all over the living room.  I'm unclear as to when exactly we'll be removing these piles, so I'm thinking this ain't as good as it could be. 

Going to go put in a load of laundry, then we're going to get a new cooling pad for the laptop.  It's an exciting life, people!

When I needed to get W's room ready (& it was basically a catch all room full of stuff/junk) I wanted to dive in and give everything away and trash what we clearly could not pass on to others. My Mother was not so on board with that. But I went all, "don't negotiate with hormones" on her and we agreed that if she had not done what she needed to do by X date that I would then be allowed to swoop in and do what I needed to do to get the room ready.

basically? I hear you.

soooooooooooo hoping that the removal of the pump goes smoothly.

YAY for feeling better and making some progress on the room! I always, ALWAYS thought that Fred was based off of my dad (not that my dad is as dimwitted as Fred). When The Flintstones movie came out a friend of mine's dad took and he asked if we could imagine what have Fred for a father would be like ....I said my dad is Fred.

I'm SO glad to hear that you're feeling better! Hoping you just keep improving!

As for the room, you'll get there...it just takes time.

Glad you are feeling better!

The piles in the living room is the best, because if you have to look at it all of the time then it might actually get taken to it's destination. At least that's what works for us.
