Hi, guys! Just checking in to let you know how things are going with the colitis stuff. I can’t say I’m better, but, thankfully, I’m not worse either.
I ended up canceling my plans for both Friday night and Saturday so I could relax, get better, and hopefully prevent a flare. Although, I have to admit I really suck at relaxing. A few times yesterday, I tried to lay on the couch and watch TV, but I could not sit still for the life of me. I actually ended up cleaning the entire house, doing laundry, changing the bedding, going grocery shopping, and working on blog/freelance stuff for 3 hours yesterday. Eventually, Mal told me to take a chill pill, so I headed to bed early to read. My friend Kim let me borrow her copy of Fifty Shades of Gray, so I got comfy in bed and read for a couple of hours. When I first starting reading it, I didn’t understand what all of the hype was about, but now that I’m further along in the story, I really like it.
My eats this weekend have been pretty boring—lots of bananas, chicken, and sweet potatoes—so I didn’t snap any photos, except one of the super delicious sweet potato pancake that I made using only two ingredients. (Ok, technically, three if you want cinnamon.) It turned out so well—moist and sort of cake-y.
2-Ingredient Sweet Potato Pancake
- 1/3 cup mashed sweet potato
- 1 large egg
- Cinnamon to taste (optional)
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl or food processor.
- Heat pan (or griddle) over medium-low heat; coat with non-stick cooking spray.
- Pour batter onto the pan/griddle.
- Cook until the batter starts to bubble before flipping.
- Serve with your favorite toppings.

This morning, I felt a little bit better, so I decided to attend Elizabeth’s bridal shower. I really didn’t want to miss it, so I ponied up and went. I’m so glad that I did because it was a wonderful event. Elizabeth looked so happy and her bridesmaids did such a great job with everything.
Here I am with the bride-to-be and Bridget!
Even though I’m feeling a bit better, I’m definitely not out of the woods yet with this potential flare. I still need to take it easy and be nice to my (very angry) colon to make sure it heels. Hopefully, I’ll have good news to report soon!
Question of the Day
If you had to pick, are you generally a more high-strung or laid-back person?
