I Can Eat Again!

I can eat some normal food now, thanks to God, everyone's prayers, and a little evil drug called Prednisone! Woo hoo! So glad for this after 7 days of mostly liquids-only. It gets soooo monotonous.  Yay for Costco rotisserie chicken and white rice for dinner! I'm hoping to continue on the path to getting over this flare-up and being able to eat more foods again, although I am still pretty limited in the foods I can eat even when I'm not flaring. Now, if this stupid new kidney stone will pass so I can get on with my life....

I saw this little survey on this blog, and it looked like fun so now I'm going to fill it out too!

 Survey Says.............
 1. What time did you get up this morning? 
Well this is embarrassing... but I've been having sleeping issues... I got up at 1:24 p.m. Yes. But I couldn't go to sleep until around 7 a.m, so I'm still really tired.

2. How do you like your steak? 
I don't eat steak. In fact, I've never even had a bite of steak. Not joking! I was raised eating vegetarian and certain meats just don't appeal to me, probably since I wasn't raised with them. My closest thing to steak would be eating an In 'N Out Burger, which I had for the first time a few years ago!

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema: 
Ummm Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.(My hubs
reminded me just now, lol)

4. What is your favourite TV show? 
It seems like all my favorites are either on break or have been cancelled, or the main actor has left (Steve Carell, nooooo!) but it was The Office, 24, The Middle, Modern Family, and White Collar for now. I can't pick just one! 

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? 
Probably here, because I wouldn't want to be away from my family & friends. But, if we all moved to San Diego or Hawaii, I don't think I'd be upset! :-)

6. What did you have for breakfast?
Cream of Wheat. First solid(ish) breakfast in 7 days! No more Ensure for me!

7. What is your favorite food?
I love most italian stuff like eggplant parmesan, fettuccini alfredo, pizza, and peach cobbler a la mode, and so many things... I can't choose one. This seems to be a recurring theme in my survey. I can't ever choose just one thing!

8. Foods you dislike?
Raw onions, bell peppers, all seafood

9. Favorite place to eat?
Broadway Heights, Old Spaghetti Factory, Olive Garden, P.F. Chang's, Crush

10. Favorite dressing?
Well, since I can't eat salad anymore, it doesn't really matter... but I used to LOVE the italian dressing from Olive Garden! 

11. What kind of vehicle do you drive?
'02 Toyota Camry. So smooth & comfy to ride in (usually my hubby drives when we go somewhere, I don't get out as often with my health these days)

12. What are your favorite clothes?
Honestly, my sweat pants and a tank top. If I am at home, you won't see me in anything else! I hafta be comfortable.

13. Where would you visit if you had the chance?
An amazing tropical island like St. Thomas, also Hawaii, and Italy

14. Cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full?
I think it's funny when people say "overflowing!!!" so I'll say, "overflowing!!!"

15. Where would you want to retire?
Wherever my family & friends are, but I wouldn't mind having some amazing scenery around too!

16. Favorite time of day?
Anytime besides waking up in the morning. ;-)

17. Where were you born?
Angwin, CA (Napa Valley area)

18. What is your favorite sport to watch?
None! Well, only the superbowl because I try to find out about the players and that makes it more interesting. Oh, and maybe some gymnastics once in awhile.

19. What is your favorite fragrance?
It's kinda weird, but I love the smell of the plasticy blow-up rafts and toys in the summer, and the smell of my cats, and freshly washed sheets! lol

20. What is your favorite face cream?
I just realized that I answered this earlier as my favorite "ice cream" and then question #35 was that, so I went back here and had to change it! haha, I just use Cetaphil face wash and face lotion, works for me.

21. Favorite baby/kids products?
Don't know, I don't have kids yet.

22. People watcher?

23. Are you a morning or night person?
Afternoon & Night.

24. Do you have any pets?
Yep, my two kids (kitties) Leila and Louie.

25. Any new and exciting news you'd like to share?
I'm able to eat a lot more regular foods now, after 7 days of  mostly liquids!

26. What did you want to be when you were little?
An astronaut, piano player, or a nurse.

27. What is your favorite memory?
Our wedding day and honeymoon week. best.time.ever!

28. Are you a cat or dog person?
Both. But cats are easier and dogs need daily walks and a yard, so we only have cats right now.

29. Are you married?

30. Always wear your seat belt?

31. Been in a car accident?
Ugh I don't like to talk about that kinda stuff... I feel like I'll jinx myself or something... but I just trust in God to keep us safe every day and keep crazy distracted people off the roads!

32. Any pet peeves?
When people chew REALLY loud at the movie theater (or anywhere really...), drivers who cut you off just to get one car ahead

33. Favorite pizza toppings?

34. Favorite flower?
They're all so pretty, and the good smelling ones are the best. Roses and star lillies come to mind right now.

35. Favorite ice cream?
Right now, vanilla soft serve, and that last bite w/ the plain cone and the ice cream, SO GOOD!

36. Favorite fast food restaurant?
Ehhhh Subway I guess, or Chipotle... can't eat a lot of fast food stuff... grease hurts me, and I can't have lettuce, tomato, etc so I have to be creative.

37. How many times did you fail your driver's test?
No times

38. From whom did you get your last email?
I actually just got a reply e-mail from a blog friend, Hannah, how nice!

39. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?
Geez I haven't been out enough lately... how about Target!

40. Do anything spontaneous lately?
Went outside and walked around for the first time in a week... it sucks to be sick!

41. Like your job?
Fighting this wretched disease is my job at this point. And I'm not very fond of it!

Can't have it now. Sad. I used to looooooove steamed broccoli w/ mayonnaise... I know, sounds weird... but it's goooooood! I miss it! :-/

Honeymoon in Santa Cruz & San Diego!

Wow, it's been a long time since I haven't been able to eat real food... ummm... my hubster!

I love teal blue and deep purple right now.
