That should scare me, right? I'm not...No one seems to understand why I'm not nervous or scared. *I* don't even understand why I'm not..lol I'm anxious to have it be here already and excited to start this new lifelong journey! And I'm THRILLED to be done with this awful liquid diet...lol I know I'll still be on liquids for a while, but with the change in my stomach and the adjustments of the diabetes, hormones, hunger, appetite, etc, will make it much more tolerable! At least that's what I've been told. Perhaps everyone has been lying to me all this time....lol
The liquid diet, actually, isn't absolutely horrid...I think I'm handling it ok. Only had 2 breakdowns over the last week. Generally, I'm able to satisfy hunger pains even with warm broth or something other than just water and I've gotten very creative creating my own..um..liquid substances...lol Boiling broccoli and cauliflower until mushy, then pureeing them and the water they boiled in into it's own soup, maybe adding a little chicken broth and it's pretty darn yummy and like 30 calories for 1 cup! So not bad at all!
I really hope to have the house fully clean before I go in for surgery so I can not worry about it for awhile. Things have not gone so smoothly..things keep interfering! I've gotten most done and actually have a closet floor again...lol Hopefully today I'll finish up the bedroom including washing the drapes, which need it so badly! The laundry is neverending! I'm going to start living a nude's life so I don't have as much laundry anymore... :P
Today will be a busy day, however, besides the cleaning...I have 2 picnics to go to. UGH! Why am I putting myself through this? Well, one is to see my uncle who is visiting from across the country and two is to visit friends I haven't seen in over a year! I'm planning on arriving at both picnics AFTER the main cooking/eating is done! lol I do really miss the social aspect of food right now...
Ok, enough dawdling...these curtains aren't going to wash themselves.
