I was sitting here feeling uninspired to write. So I decided to count through my blog posts and when I realized that this post would be number sixteen, I flipped! Mentally. I’m toobe tired to physically flip right now. Plus there’s not enough space to do that here in my room.
There’s a podcast called The Inner Tube that I used to listen to all of the time. Over the course of the show’s run, several inside jokes have developed, and one of the most prominent ones is the phrase, “we’re up to sixteen now!” The hosts also turn anything that sounds remotely like “tube” into “toobe”, hence the title of this post.
So there’s that!
Let’s just do an update.
I’m still not doing completely well, but I am doing better. Some really amazing friends hung out with me in the past few days, and that’s helped. I am completely thankful for their time and love and I’m so blessed to have them as close friends.
I’ve been really pumped about making food again. A fact that is very apparent if you visit my Instagram feed! 😛 It hit me super suddenly yesterday when I woke up, and it’s still in me today. Although, today I lacked the energy to actually do anything super creative with what I ate. Unless you count mixing peanut butter into the vanilla icing on a slice of cake. That was good!
One of my friends is forcing me to visit them this weekend, so I’ll be taking a short weekend trip in a few days. I’m excited about that! And I will see the doctor on Friday, which is a little overdue. But it’s happening. Yay for Crohn’s!
This week has been fairly crazy.
For the first couple of days, I woke up in Clarkston, Washington. I was visiting some friends for the weekend and having a wonderful time! Although, I was a bit short on sleep. So we slept in a bit. But once we were up, we got straight to doing stuff and making the most of what little time we had together.
Once I got back home, I recorded a new episode of The Aux Cable with Ryan, which was to be released the following day. On that Wednesday, after sleeping in a tad, I drove to Penticton to meetup with my brother and his girlfriend. Last week we made plans to surprise a friend in Kelowna for her birthday. So that’s what we did. It was great! She really got a kick out of it, and I got to see her again after a whole year.
That night, we stayed up watching horror movies until the wee hours of the morning. I love horror films! But I prefer to watch them with people as I think it’s more fun to be scared in a group. Spending time with this group was so much fun, and it brought back a lot of memories. I hope we do something else soon!
And on Friday and Saturday, I finished out the week with some TV, movies, and lots of naps. (Yay for The Crown and Your Lie in April!) I needed to catch up on sleep, so I did my best to accomplish that. Yay! Also, I got my popcorn fix for a while. My cousin and I went to see Doctor Strange in the theatre, so of course popcorn was involved!! 😉
Overall, an amazing week spent with good friends and family.
This coming week? Well, it’s gonna be interesting. I will officially be starting my job search and figuring out how to navigate the healthcare system down here. It shouldn’t be too different from the North, but I don’t know quite where to start. I’ll be getting some help with that though.
Wish me luck!
