My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)

Back from Vacation

Hi everyone! Sorry I never updated last week after my endoscopy, but my vacation started a day early since I was unable to go back to work after the scope.
It turns out I do have a few small ulcers in my pouch, just as I had figured. The treatment is just the Prevacid and the Carafate, which I started taking when I thought I may have an ulcer. The doctor said they will heal up within a month or so, and they may or may not come back. Some people never get them again, and some have issues with them all the time. So hopefully I will be the former, not the latter!

My cousin Casey flew down from New York last Monday, but I didn't get to see him until Wednesday because he went to visit my sister for the first 2 days. We all had a fabulous time. Wednesday we went to the Astros game, then the Aquarium and the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner. Thursday, we went to Space Center Houston and then to BJ's Brewhouse for dinner. Lots of eating on my vacation! LOL Friday, we spent the day in San Antonio and then BBQ'd with some friends on Friday evening.. Saturday, we went to lunch with my mom, then bowling in the evening. Sunday was brunch at Baba Yega and then we had to take Casey to the airport. I cried. I love my family so much, and miss them all! It was great to see him though, and hopefully we can go up to NY to see everyone soon enough.. I'd LOVE that. :)

This week, I'm catching up on work and in the evenings I'm packing and purging stuff. I'm having a quickie garage sale on Saturday morning to get rid of a bunch of things, and then donating/freecycling the rest. It'll be great to get rid of things! WOO HOO!

I have a doctor's appt with a new OB/GYN that Jil recommended to me. Fun stuff! haha

Anyways, I'll try to post more regularly again, but it probably won't get to be daily until August or so, with all the packing I have planned. FUN! :)

Hope all is well with everyone.. will be catching up on blogs as soon as I can! I feel sooo out of the loop with everyone! :(

I hope it all goes well for you. And you heal well.
I love BJ's pizza very good, probably not for my diet though.

So good to see a post from you! I miss it when my bloggers don't update!
Glad to hear your problems are nothing more serious and wonderful you got to spend time with your cousin! Sounds like you had a blast!
I've been trying to declutter too...giving stuff for our church yardsale. but I have come to the realization that I have a clothing addiction. Yes, they are all second hand clothes, but I have tons and can't part with any that fit me! Guess it has to do with losing 109 pounds, huh? ;)
