Before I start what I really want to talk about, I feel I need to give clarification on my gut issues. The problems I am having wasn’t due to what I was eating, I eat really pretty clean, I have for many years. The problems started when I was under a great amount of stress, I started having heart burn, which I had never had except during pregnancies.
I went to the doctor and he said oh just take over the counter Nexium. Not really interested in finding the root cause, so I did, and it went on.
The longer one takes these types of things the more it creates havoc in your body. The Nexium suppressed the stomach acid, creating a barrier, as time went on it created such a barrier that food could not get to the acid, which it needs to for your body to break it down. So the food is just sitting there and my body isn’t getting the nutrients and there is more heartburn because of the food sitting there and more Nexium is needed. It is a vicious cycle.
What my nutritionist is doing, working with me to change up some of the things I currently eat, is to build up natural acid back in my stomach. Then we will wean me off of the Nexium, as you cannot quit cold turkey, it is very bad that way.
I hope that clears some things up, now on to what is on my mind.
First off, I read or heard, I can’t remember, someone’s goal for the year is to do one thing they are passionate about. I am passionate about words, writing them, reading them, hearing them, all of it. I have also heard, many times, especially during Mary Kay meetings, is find something you love so much you would do it for free.
Well folks, here I am doing what I love for free, actually it costs me money to bring you this lovely mess I call, whatever is in my head.
I can’t promise to write every day, but I can promise you I will either read or write.
Ok, so, I did something today that leaves me shaking my head, at myself. I totally blame my cubemate, I won’t say her name, because I don’t know if I am supposed to put her name in the public stratosphere.
Anyway, we were discussing some of the more difficult aspects of our job, she said she wished she had a contact in engineering. A lot of what we do is put on hold due to engineering issues. I said oh I know someone in that department. I think you know him as well. I said his name and she immediately remembered him, I said I’ll see if he still works for the company. I haven’t talked to him a few years, hold on. So I found him, he still works there, I chatted him with a hello how are you. He responded immediately, with hey I was just thinking about you last week.
I said oh wow, great minds and all of that, we made small talk for a moment, just when I thought I had buttered him up enough to ask if he could help us, he says he is single and did I have a man in my life.
I sat there for a moment, answered, I met Dean Cain, I’m hopeful. I can’t even type that without bursting into laughter, because it is exactly what I said.
I seriously hope no one ever shows this site to Dean, I’ll be getting that restraining order for sure.
Anyway I quickly ended the chat with it was nice catching up, my shift is over, bye.
And just like that I avoided any semblance of an embarrassing conversation. Have you ever had anything like that? I honestly don’t know if the hitting on was going to happen, but I didn’t want to stick around to find out.
He is a really nice man, but he comes with a bunch of baggage (I know, we all do) but 4 ex-wives is a bit much for me. For someone else he will be perfect, but not for me, before you ask, I am not friends with him on any platform of social media.
On another note, I have begun training the husky to do Alien Hunting. You know, like Kryptonians, Vulcans, Klingons, Martian Man Hunters or even Asgardians. Now wouldn’t that be something, I am very excited for this new adventure. We will be going to Roswell and I am positive she will be able to ferret out any Alien being.
That’s all I have for now, I hope everyone’s new year is going as well as mine. As usual any comments, questions or criticisms can be left here or sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
