All in a day/weekend

Saturday, October 12, 2013

I had planned to work on paring down things in the house today but my parents decided we needed to go shopping with them. On the way there hubby got himself some food at Burger King. I had eaten on my three hour schedule already, and can't eat much of anything there anyway due to gluten and nickel and other allergies. I told myself I can remember the flavors and enjoy it that way-just the memory, being grateful for that.
We ended up getting Christmas gifts (Yeah, can you beleive it?) for a couple kids in the family- and I got a birthday gift for my neice. As we were leaving the first mall, I realized it had been three hours since I'd last eaten, so the guys went and got me a Subway salad (I should have had them get me an apple from there too), while my mom and I shopped at the store we got the kids' gifts at. Great sale too.
Then we went to a bigger mall, where mom decided she didn't want to look any longer, that she'd just send my neice money for her birthday. She also decided to get some Auntie Anne pretzels. She got some for my dad and my husband and herself. She knew I couldn't eat them (again-gluten/nickel allergies I just recently found out I had).
We went and got something we had needed, and found it was both on sale and we got an extra 20% off. Pretty nice. :)
Hubby and I got a drink each (3 dollars for each drink- crazy), and we all had those things in the food court. I was remembering what the pretzel tastes like (I've only ever had about an inch or so piece of one), but again, I can't have wheat, so that's that. I had a moment or more where I wanted to feel sorry for myself, but I had already eaten something, wasn't hungry, or really interested in it anyway, and especially since it would make me break out and itch, so I could be content in having them enjoy it.
We walked the dogs after the sun went down (due to having to watch the movie as soon as we got home, because we didn't know how long it was and he was supposed to go to his friend's), and at one point I suddenly slid with my left foot, to the right real fast. My body balanced itself nicely (kinda wonder if I had some heavenly help there!) and I did not fall. I am feeling like my back isn't quite right now, but I probably need only stretch it.
I had planned to try and start a list of foods high in nickel and foods low in nickel this evening, so I can get trying to figure out what I can eat so that I stop being so itchy and these break outs can totally heal, but plans got changed (hubby didn't go to his friend's after all, and he wanted to watch another movie).
Now I have some family coming over tomorrow too, so, lol, I will focus on enjoying them and when I get to it all, I get to it. :)
I did ask hubby if we could possibly take all the books and papers off some shelves before he heads back to work Tuesday- and go through what we wanted to keep and make plans to get rid of the rest. He actually sounded like he would do that with me. YAY
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend thoroughly.

    Wonderful job resisting all those foods! Congratulations! Now that you know the cause of the itchiness, making a list of foods you can and can't have is a great idea.
