Favorite Bathrooms

  • Home Sweet Home
  • When I'm @ someones house: the one farthest away from the crowd
  • @ the Mall: Macy's (as public bathrooms go this one is very nice)
  • If I can't make it to Macy's...JC Penney's will have to do (they recently remodeled so it is better than it was. I don't know why they didn't ask for my input???)
  • Monterey Bay Fish Grotto in Monroeville has a great bathroom
  • Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, My fav place to vacation, their rooms have the most wonderful bathrooms

Gee Thanks Crohns

So you all know that I have been having a lot of nausea and fatigue yadda yadda yadda, and baseball season is always a difficult time for me. For me Crohns and baseball just doesn’t go well together. As I’ve said before I don’t do porta johns unless it’s an extreme emergency. So I avoid extreme emergencies by not eating. As you can imagine this makes even a good day turn bad very quickly. So I’ve been struggling through the season going to all of B’s games and most of J’s home games. This week however I was just worn out and feeling extra nauseous and fatigued on Tuesday so I decided not to go to B’s game. Now my kids are wonderful and they completely understand if I can’t make it to a game. As a matter of fact when they know that I’m not feeling well they encourage me to stay home because they want me to feel better more than anything. It’s me being stubborn and not wanting/letting Crohns interfere with any part of my kids lives. But I do know my limits (most of the time) so I stayed home and it felt good to stay home until I hear “B hit a homerun” his third one this year and I missed it. I missed it because of you Crohns. You are such a pain in the butt Crohns (pun intended). All I can say is it’s a good thing I got to see the first two. I am very thankful for that!!!

J’s team is doing very well! They qualified for the Quarter Finals that will be played on Sat. at their home field. If they win they move on. GO TEAM!

I got my Cimzia shots last night and I hope its kicking your butt Crohns. Blood work today, ugh more needles. Hoping she can get it on the first stick this time. I’ll be sure to let you know. So until then

Love, Laugh, and always know where the nearest bathroom is
