Female issues - I know, lucky me, right? The f*cking steroid cream isn't working anymore. I might use some of Hulky's hydrocortisone cream instead. There's plenty in the tube and he hasn't been needing it. I'm so fed up with this. I have no idea what I could be reacting to and why it would be ONLY there. The gyn was so nice, but I think she is just as clueless about this as everyone else has been. I'm supposed to get my period within the next couple of days and that is bound to make things worse.
Gut issues - Between the tortilla chips and the sour cream, my gut stopped up from Sunday till yesterday evening. I took mag citrate mid-day and it was very effective, so many my gut was just taking its time? I took it again at bedtime. The chips are gone and the sour cream has nothing else to go with, so I'll ditch that and continue to avoid dairy and now corn. I don't feel like I had that much sour cream, so that's why I'm considering that corn could be an irritant for me.
Mood - Overall, my moods have been decent lately BUT I keep getting INCREDIBLY irritable in the evening. This could be PMS, but I don't know why it's only that time of day. Maybe it's because I'm not eating much. I guess step 1 is resuming breakfast.
I didn't go grocery shopping last night so now I'm stuck going tonight while everyone else stocks up for the incoming weather. Right now, the forecast is 4-6", but a high of 38°F so I think it's going to be wet and heavy. Loooovely. I want to get mushrooms, onions, red potatoes, stew meat, water chestnuts (is that going to be totally weird in a beef stew?), beef stock, garlic, and asparagus. We probably need some more meat to stock the freezer too. Tonight, I want to make some kind of white wine sauce with some chicken breast, which I'll serve with oven fries & broccoli. I hope it comes out okay. Valentines Day dinner is going to be beef stew (with some of the leftover red wine). I had wanted to make pot roast since that is Hulky's favorite, but I think that requires more maintenance than I can provide since I'll be working most of the day.
I don't know what kind of coat/jacket to bring to London or shoes. How rainy is it (drizzly, just wet, or actual accumulation)? Will I want something to cover my head? I don't like getting my head wet in the rain or snow, for some reason. It doesn't bother Hulky at all. I need to re-waterproof my shoes.
Because I'm a smarty-pants, I got $16 cash back from the tours & things I booked from viator.com by using a cash back site that I signed up on ages ago. That will help make up for the extra-large electricity bill we got this month! I guess the PS3 drains a lot of power.
