Yesterday morning everything seemed normal until I got in the shower, started throwing up, and couldn’t stop. (Yep. Isn’t that a fun image??) So I had to call my Vice Principal at 7:30 in the morning (WAY too late to call in) and apologize for being late, and then call out. I laid around all day and slept. I didn’t throw up much more, but food was not appealing. I managed to eat a little something in the afternoon but felt rough all day. This morning I decided not to eat (which was a good call) and went in as there was a meeting I had to attend. Around lunch I ate a Lara bar and kept it down, but it wasn’t until mid afternoon that I started feeling human again. After school I had a snack of hummus and veggies while E was at a DI team meeting; She has a competition tomorrow so I had to take her to the meeting and pick her up. By the time I got her home we all decided to forage for dinner. The kids had their thing and Mark made his so I had to decide what I wanted.
As I looked through the fridge I saw the fake bacon I found on Wed. night when I was shopping for a snack for my book club. Breakfast meat has been something I missed but up until now I only found vegetarian versions, not vegan ones. Clearly it was a sign; I needed to have a blt. Yep. Some toasted white-wheat bread. Some vegenaise. Some sliced tomato (sprinkled with pink salt and freshly ground pepper). Some mesculum mix. Add some veggie booty as a side dish (no chips here – T is allergic to potatoes!) and it was a classic sandwich just like I wanted. To be honest I didn’t eat much of the veggie booty. It just wasn’t appealing to me tonight. But that sandwich is all gone.
