Whatever “normal” means. I’m finally feeling better, only thanks to time and not the medical profession, but I’ll take it.
Sleepy today. Out late last night with a friend. Thanksgiving lunch today with kiddo at her school. Work. Home to crash in a bit.
Not really in the mood to write today so that’s all I got.
Today’s doctor visit was very, anticlimactic, to say the least. I got a lot of “hmmm”s and “I see”s. And then he gave me some random sample meds to try, said “good luck with that” and sent me on my way. Thank you Dr. Decisive.
I got a nice nap in today and then took kiddo to get her flu mist. That was a stressful adventure there and back as I battled horrendous traffic caused by a fatality wreck on the interstate. Very sad. Managed to get her back to dance class, albeit late and one of her dance shoes was missing. She’s already lost one set of leotards and pants. Kids these days…can’t keep up with anything.
Sweet cuddles tonight while watching Pocahontas II, in which the Indian princess totally ditches John Smith for John Rolfe because girls are fickle. Tomorrow we have a playdate with her bestie at some place filled with trampolines. Here’s to no broken bones. There also needs to be some shopping for winter clothes for kiddo and maybe a library trip.
File this under most boring post ever. But sometimes, boring is good.
Doctor appointment tomorrow because apparently, it is important to be able to eat.
So this eating thing is not going so well. Since Friday night (that’s approximately 4 and a half days ago) I have had one can of Chicken Noodle Soup, a handful of pretzels and saltines, part of a frozen Smart Ones, and a portion of a Zaxby’s combo meal. That is it. I am living off of water and Sprite and fat reserves, of which I have plenty. My eyes look at food and my tummy starts chanting “hell no, food won’t go” and gives me a not so friendly stab in the gut. And yes, I am HUNGRY! At this rate I will be 20 lbs lighter by Christmas.
I’m also dying to get outside and go for a walk or ride the bike but I have no energy because apparently you need food for that and my body is rejecting all such crazy notions. The Accountant is on me to go to the doctor and I keep saying I will if it’s not better tomorrow. Then I say the same thing the next day.
Hubs thought he had caught it but it turned out to be a very light case, so far at least. But hey, he traded that in for a nasty sinus infection so he wouldn’t be left out of The Great Plague of 2013. Yay equality. Kiddo, the initial carrier and spreader of germs, remains steady at this point.
Anywho. Y’all hang tight, I’m about to try a banana…
…but people keep dying and getting sick on me. Since my last post two more grandmothers have passed, this time on The Accountant’s side, and also within a few days of each other. Its been sad and exhausting. Four deaths within less than three months…too much. Kiddo has been sick with a stomach virus, then I got it and still have it, and now I think hubs has it but that remains to be confirmed. I have missed so much work I’m surprised I still have a job to go to. I felt like crap today but managed to drag myself in anyway and have felt better as the day has worn on. On the bright side, I’ve lost 5 pounds.
It hasn’t all been bad of course. Halloween fell in between sickness and it was a good one. And my kiddo…come on….the cuteness…she had a great time trick or treating in the neighborhood and giving mom all her candy because, junk food. Her father has brainwashed her with healthy talk.
Kiddo continues to do well in school. We made it past her first report card and parent teacher conference with flying colors and she still loves going every day. We are ramping up for a holiday season full of dance recitals, Thanksgiving school lunches and fall festivals so its going to get busy quick!
I’m anxious to get back on the bike and into the gym as that’s fallen apart due to life’s madness. All our big toys are currently residing in the unused breakfast area because that makes sense right? That reminds me that I need to take the two bikes in for check ups. Random brain. I’m still holding steady weight wise but I’d like to just FEEL better and I know getting back to being active is key for me.
I’ve got a notion to try indoor rock climbing here soon so we’ll see. There are two great local facilities just waiting for me and my weak arms to embarrass themselves.
And birthdays!! Brother, sister-in-law, dad, niece all had big ones over the past couple of months. Mine is next. Ack. Then mom and grandpa’s. And my sweet friend Nora. Plus my parents’ anniversary. Party party party! Or maybe just, getting older. Woo.
And now that I have successfully held down a can of soup, I’m calling it a good day. Till next time. Ciao.
Sometimes when it’s late and I should be sleeping, I just sit and stare at the screen or the tv or the ceiling and think. I’m a weirdo. Anyway. Haven’t felt much like writing the past few days but here are a couple of pictures.
Went to a cool sushi place with my friend Dani the other day. The sushi goes by on a conveyor and you just grab what you want. Different, and yummy. And yeah I took a photo because I am a complete dork. Counting on lunch at my favorite Indian place with The Accountant this week. No conveyor belts there however. Just yummy naan and all the spicy!
Bike ride last weekend on the greenway. A crisp, somewhat soggy fall day made for a nice 10 miler. Not sure what I’m going to do when it gets really cold. I can say I’ll still ride but will I really?
I think I need something else to look forward to. Something that’s just mine. The 1/2 marathon was sort of that over the past couple of months. I’m not sure what now though. I could register for another race I guess but that doesn’t really feel right somehow.
Pictures and things to relay, but no motivation to do so. You are all crushed, I know.
Here’s a funny because, hipsters.
