A Lot About Nothing

Happy Monday everyone! I'm looking forward to this week for many reasons. It's definitely going to be a fun one!!
My weekend was busy. I worked for my parents. I always say it's not really a big deal to work events but I'm always glad when they're over. Even though my parents were up here this weekend I hardly saw them. They worked baseball while I worked soccer and it's an all day, all weekend long thing so I don't feel like I saw them at all. Luckily I did get to see sweet Gracie and the girls were excited to be reunited again.
I felt bad on Saturday because it was Scott's birthday and I didn't get to spend the day with him at all. I woke up early so I could make him breakfast because he really enjoys a big, yummy breakfast and that's about all I did with him. Scott and a bunch of guys went golfing then he had dinner with his dad so he wasn't abandoned and alone on his birthday. Not that he really cares. Birthdays aren't what they used to be the older you get are they? Still though, I like to make them feel special for people!
Yesterday was not a fun day for me. I had the worst stomach pains and laid in bed all day. Before my Mom, Grammy and Uncle Wesley left NWA we ate at Abuelos for lunch and I had to get up and lay in Scott's car before I could even finish my meal. I had stabbing pains all over. I came home and crawled in bed with a heating pad and the stomach pains didn't go away until late last night. My Mom has been trying to get me to go to a Gastroenterologist for years now. I've had stomach troubles for literally as long as I can remember. I've had blood drawn and seen many doctors over the years to see if they could figure out what's wrong with me and nobody can ever diagnose me with anything. 
I am very sensitive to food but I don't think I'm full blown allergic to anything. I have to eat a very clean diet quite consistently if I want to feel good. For the longest time I thought I had celiac disease but I learned I'm just sensitive to gluten. I'm sensitive to dairy too. I can have gluten or dairy here and there and it totally doesn't bother me but if it's in my diet a lot for a week I start to have problems. Eating clean is the only thing I've found that keeps the stomach troubles away.
You were wanting to hear all about my medical history weren't you? Moving on....
We're supposed to have bad weather tonight which is always a little scary. We don't have a good place in our house to hide. Stay safe NWA!
