So, this morning was a tad frustrating. After breakfast, I drove to an appointment with my GI doctor, but, unfortunately, I never actually saw him because of some health insurance mumbo-jumbo.
Basically, I didn’t have a referral from my new primary care doctor to see my GI doc, so my visit wouldn’t have been covered by my health insurance. Annoying, but I sort of thought this might happen— and it’s totally okay because I recently switched my primary care doctor to one at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), so I could get in with a GI specialist there. I actually have an appointment with my new primary care doctor on Friday, so, hopefully, she’ll work some miracles, and I’ll have a new super awesome GI doctor soon. MGH actually has a whole Digestive Healthcare Center (including a Crohn’s & Colitis Center) and does all sorts of great IBD research, so I’m hopeful a new GI doctor will help me manage my condition (instead of just prescribing me more and more drugs to deal with the symptoms).
Since I didn’t go to my appointment, I had a couple of hours to kill before I needed to be at NuVal, so I went shopping for new sheets. (I know, my life is so exciting.) The ladies from this weekend’s bachelorette party mentioned that Marshalls has a really great bedding selection (and I’m weirdly obsessed with clean sheets and some of ours were looking pretty grubby), so I popped in on my way home to check it out. And they were right—there was lots of nice, affordable bedding, so I’m telling you guys: Marshall’s has great bedding!
Marshalls was pimped out with all sorts of autumn décor, so I also bought a “pumpkin brulee” candle. I just couldn’t resist.
When I got home, my new candle looked sad and lonely sitting on the coffee table in our living room, so I decided to break out the rest of our fall decorations, which took me about 5 minutes to put out because don’t own very many. (Christmas is a different story!)
We own even fewer spring/Easter decorations.
So long summer! Hello, fall!
Have you put out your fall decorations yet? Do you think it’s too early to decorate?
A little while later, I headed to NuVal for a few hours.
It was lunchtime, so I packed some food to take with me: sliced cucumber, Sweet Potato Wedges, avocado chicken salad, and a fried egg.
I also brought some fresh raspberries.
My lunch held me over pretty well, but when I got home from NuVal, I sliced up a banana and added some sunflower butter and raisins for an afternoon snack.
Now, I’m off to walk the pug!
