Top 2 Tuesday: Strange Addictions




Today is Tuesday & you know what that means...it's time for Top 2 Tuesday again!!
Today's date is 1/11/11. Am I the only one that thinks that's cool?
The only thing cooler will be 11/11/11 @ 11:11:11.
Anyway, today's topic is:



Top 2 Strange Addictions



note: this one was really, really hard for me for some reason! Anyway, I managed to come up with 2...although I don't think they're really that strange.

{1} I must have the windshield in my car clean. If Kyle is driving & a few drops of rain fall, I reach over immediately and turn on the windshield wiper...then I'll turn it back off. It urks me to have anything on the windshield? Why? No good reason.

{2} For my last Ulcerative Colitis flare, I was on heavy narcotics for 3 weeks in the hospital. So much so that I had to be weaned. I wasn't allowed to get any pain meds prescribed for discharge though because they felt that those might mask a problem that I would need to be aware of. Sooo, I started using my heating pad. I basically used it all day every day for ~1 month after discharge. I had one at work & at home. I eventually noticed that it was breaking capillaries & making my belly look funny. So, I started cutting back on how much I used it (per my mom's recommendation). I realized t that point that it was sort of a comfort measure. By no means do I use it every day anymore but I secretly get a little happy if my back is aching or my belly hurts now because I get to lay on it for a while. It's sort of soothing to me. Go ahead, call me a weirdo.
There you have it...my 2 strange addictions. Hop over to Taylor's blog if you haven't already and link up!
Today's another snow day off from work. I am so lucky to be spending some extra time with my sweet Kinsley Anne. The roads are seriously a disaster and I'm curious about the rest of the week.
Until Next Time..
Love, Jen
