You look hot in that mask

So it's been like 3 weeks since I've posted anything--the days have just sort of been flying by.  Mostly in a good way.  Here's what's new with me:

I had an endoscopy 2 weeks ago to see if I have hiatal hernia, which means my stomach sits too high in my abdomen or something like that.  I do have it, and my surgeon said he would take care of it when he does my surgery.

A friend and I started a new website last week, based on a conversation we have been having for a while now, about how we don't feel like real adults.  For example, I think most adults probably don't shove trash in between the couch cushions when they don't feel like throwing it away.  You are most welcome to visit out site and contribute!  It's called Grownups Don't

I did a sleep study on Monday night and found out I have SEVERE OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA.  I don't think it's supposed to be in all caps like that, but that's how it sounded to me when the tech was explaining it.  So now I get to sleep wearing a CPAP, which sort of looks like a gas mask, only it has pink straps because I'm a lady even when I'm sleeping, damn it!

Feelin pretty and sleepin through the night!

I found out my surgery will at the beginning of April.  My surgeon will be out of town for a whole week in March and wouldn't be able to get me in until the last week of the month.  My BF and I are going to Chicago April 1 for a concert so that won't quite work, so post-Chicago it is.  Waiting to hear back about the exact date; they had to look over the results from my sleep study first.

I'm saying goodbye to bread, and it pains me.  The past couple of weeks I've been baking dough, focaccia and my ultimate favorite: soft pretzels.  With a cheddar-beer sauce.  the pictures:

That about sums it up...I promise I won't wait another 3 weeks to post.  I'll have my date soon and I'll definitely want to shout about it. 



  1. I had a severe hiatal hernia that was fixed during surgery too. The difference, for me, has been AMAZING. No more heartburn, no more reflux, no more going through a huge bottle of Tums in two to three weeks. I hope you have the same results! Oh, and nobody told me beforehand that fixing the hernia meant I would have an extra scar, right between the boobs, and right on my bra line. So be prepared for that. It was the most annoying scar to heal for me because it constantly rubbed the bottom of my just so you know, that's a possibility! :)

    1. Oh wow, I had never even considered that! Wonderful... Thanks for the heads up!
