I hope that everybody has a happy and safe Thanksgiving shared with your loved ones.
My Grandma’s favorite Thanksgiving song:
I’m a big, fat turkey
I go gobble gobble gobble
When I walk
My legs go wobble wobble wobble
Remembering you especially today
Pop Pop’s coming over today for Thanksgiving dinner. I know you know how much he misses you, but we’re taking good care of him. And Mom’s still “making” the turkey just like you guys did that one year
Well, unfortunately Melissa was right on the Day 5 comment. I did really catch something!
Luckily, I didn’t get the sickness my BIL had (so no throwing up…) Instead I got the illness my mom had 1-2 weeks ago. I honestly thought I was having a panic attack and going insane. On Monday morning, I had to call my mom to pick me up from work because I wasn’t feeling good.
Me: Oh man, you wouldn’t believe what happened to me the other night.
Mom: What was the matter?
Me: I seriously think I’m having a prolonged panic attack or some sort of axiety problem. My legs were shaking so bad.
Mom: Really? I’m glad to hear you say that because I thought there was something wrong with me!
So apparently we had the exact same symptoms! She said her legs were more twitching as opposed to the violent shaking I had.
On Sunday I ate 1 Eggo waffle and that was it. Monday I held down her recliner for about 8 hours until Shane came to pick me up, and all I had that day was about 4 slices of an apple. I had zero desire to eat or drink anything. By Tuesday I knew I needed to eat something, so I had 8 chicken nuggets from Chick-Fil-A (thanks again to my mom for bringing them to me!) but that was it for Tuesday. Finally today I’m getting a little bit of an appetite back. I had half a bowl of cereal for breakfast and now I’m having some chicken for dinner.
This is definitely the strangest illness I’ve ever had! I had no sore throat or congestion or anything, but I basically didn’t move for 4 days. I was going to bed around 8:30 and not waking up until 10 or 10:30 the next morning. I NEVER sleep in that late! And when I was awake, I was practically a zoned-out vegetable on the couch. My body just felt so heavy that I couldn’t move it. It felt like I had no muscles. I’m not very good at describing it, but suffice it to say I’ve been miserable.
But after missing 3 days of work, I’m glad to be going back tomorrow.
What I’m not glad about is that I’m behind on my 30 in 30. I was in no shape to do any of that, so now I’m going to have to do a couple a day to catch up and be done by Thanksgiving.
I’ve been such a bad friend… although any of my real life friends will tell you it’s very common for me. My best friend lives down the street and I only see her a handful of times a year. Bad, bad friend.
But what have I been up to? How have I been spending my time?
I got a little home office set up, complete with filing cabinet (so I don’t have to do all my bills at work anymore).
I’ve done a lot of online shopping… A lot.
We went out today and got Shane an Ipad. I have this weird thing about the Ipad because it bothers me to write iPad.
Shane feels like a sell-out.
And I have a few things in the works that I’m excited for and that I hope you will all join me on. I guess the details will have to come later… but I’m feeling maybe another contest or something.
