"Strange things are afoot at the Circle K!" Yes, yes I did just quote Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. More importantly than things being afoot at the Circle K though, things are definitely afoot in my intestinal tract!
I started my new job yesterday and things are going well so far. I'm tired, hate the drive there because of traffic and I'm still not quite sure of everything that I am supposed to be doing yet, but all in all I can fairly say that at the completion of day 2 - I love it!
But back to my bowels. For the last couple of weeks my intestinal situation has been, dare I say, normal. Not just "me" normal which consists of about six to eight mushy to watery bowel movements a day, but "normal" normal like I go twice a day and that is it. No pain. Nothing. And my diet has totally sucked lately too which always causes more problems. Weird, I know.
It is hard for me to deal with this normalcy because I keep thinking I should be going to the bathroom more. Food shouldn't stay in me this long. Why have I not been to the bathroom five times yet? I honestly think I don't like it at all. I don't like that I feel full after eating. Not bloated, just full. Usually, because I go so often and always right after I eat, I am never really full feeling. But now I just feel normal. How weird is that? It probably won't last long and once all the stress and excitement of the new job settle down I am sure it will be back to many more trips a day to the bathroom. For now though, I think I am going to try and enjoy the reprieve from the potty.
