Earthquakes, Sushi, and Cheers to Better Health

Mr. Bee and I celebrated the beautiful Easter weekend by spending the day in Old Town and having dinner at our favorite sushi place. We've been going there since we started dating 6 years ago and used to be able to walk there, sake bomb all night and stumble home. Even though we're older and slightly wiser, it still has some amazing food. Plus, I had my first Diet Coke in 6 months. Straight from the can baby! And I have to say, it was probably one of the best Diet Coke's of my entire life.

Love the little tags on all the menus

Thanks for all the kind words about the earthquake - we're fine, just shaken up (sorry, couldn't resist!), and we're all safe and sound. Ellie is slightly grumblier than usual, but that's to be expected. When I was younger my house was very close to the Northridge quake, and this was a cakewalk compared.

On the health front - I'm actually driving again and back in the office for half-days! I'm so grateful for every single thing I've been able to do lately. I've definitely been working hard trying to recondition my body and push through everything, but I'm hoping that all of my hard work is paying off. Now if I could just get my body back where it was pre-illness. I know that body shape is one of the last things I should worry about when I'm trying to get better, but not fitting the way you're used to in your clothes is just not fun. 

Also, I have a very dear friend who is going through a major rough patch I can't even imagine. She's a very strong person and someone I've always looked up to and admired, and it truly breaks my heart to know that she is going through this. Any prayers for her would be appreciated.

Hope everyone is coming out of their food comas and had a wonderful Easter!

  1. Those sushi pictures are just precious. I'm so glad to hear that you are doing so much better, too! How exciting!

    I don't think it's silly to be unhappy with your body shape. You're ready to go "back to normal," and shape was a part of your old normal, not to mention looking healthy makes you feel healthier. I hope you get it back in good time :) (Not that you need to, you look great! Just because you want to.)
