Being sick Feed

Friday frenzy!

Yeah, not really. :P  It's been a pretty calm day.  I had to go pick up my prescriptions, so I did that this afternoon. My car did so well! I was so happy with it.  I had to run out again a little bit ago and it didn't do as well. :(  It turned off on me and didn't want to go like it should.  I was able to get where I was going though, so that was good.  I got the things I needed and picked out this year's pumpkin! He is a cutie and they had pumpkins for $1.99 so he was a good price too!  I, of course, took a picture to share.

I started on another puzzle today and it's pretty.  It's colorful, but there are distinctive sections, so it's easy to find pieces for each section.  I am going to do the rest tomorrow, but I got a good deal done today.  I have a migraine that is mainly in the sick on my stomach stages, but when I went out this last time, there was someone in line behind me that had enough cologne on to kill a cow.  They stuck and it made my headache come raging back.  Then I drove home and got two different people behind me with ultra bright headlights. I'm glad to be home and in my room!


Tuesday, right?

Yeah, my days are all screwy lately.  I really need to get my booty back in gear and walking.  I just have been feeling so cruddy that I don't want to go.  I keep hoping I'll feel better. I don't want to go to the doctor, dammit!  

So, what did I do today?  Well, I finished that puzzle.  All those tulips were hard!  It took me a lot longer than I would have thought, but I finished it.  It's a pretty puzzle.  I pulled out the Kindle last night and decided that the book I started way back when was never going to be finished by me. It just doesn't do it for me.   I looked to see if I had any zombie books in my zom folder on the Kindle and I had one I hadn't read yet.  I started it last night and it's been really good.  I read a lot of it before I went to bed last night.  I also found two books today to download to my Kindle.  They were books featured as free from one of the ebook discount/free emails I get.  Both sounded interesting, so I 'bought' them for $0.

Hopefully tonight, I can get to bed before 4am!  That is the plan, but we'll see if that works out or not.  Probably not as I've been staying up way too late.  I'm just not sleepy and if I lie down when I'm not sleepy, I just get irritated and toss and turn.  Hopefully tonight I'll be sleepy and can crash a little early.  I really need to get back to walking!


Hello, late night post!

No, I didn't forget to post today.  I just haven't been home to do it!  I didn't walk today.  I felt gross when I got up so I skipped it.  I laid in bed a lot longer than I planned to!  After lunch, I finally got going a bit.  I finished my puzzle that I was working on.  I called my friend because I really wanted Starbucks. lol I'm doing a streak to get stars.  She took me. Yay!  After that, I went back to her house and hung out a bit.  They ordered Chinese for dinner and I went with them to pick it up and helped eat it, too! lol . We played a board game for a bit and then I came home.

I got here and was putting things together and realized I was missing my Starbucks card.  That would never do! lol I texted my friend to see if she was still up.  She was, so I went up and she opened her car and there it was.  Relief!  I walked back home and then pulled out the MBP to type up my blog post.  I did my French in between getting home and realizing my Starbucks card was missing.  I hope to try to start walking again soon.  I just seem to have lost the will and the motivation.  I wake up feeling horrible and just don't want to do anything.  It really sucks. :( . Here is the completed puzzle.  This was a hard one!


Not too long.....

I am feeling pretty icky at the moment.  I woke up feeling bad and took another day off from walking.  I felt a little better this afternoon, but after eating lunch, having a frappuccino, and being in a stressful situation, I'm sick on my stomach. :( . I hope to feel better tomorrow and I plan to lie down after I post this and hope the nausea goes away.  I never ate supper and I don't think I'm going to!

I did get a new puzzle started today.  This one is going to be the hardest one yet, I think.  A lot of the pieces are similar in color and it's all in all an dark puzzle.  I'll get it done though.  I only go the outline and a little in the inside done today.  Here is what I have:


Not a lot, but it's progress!  I didn't get to start on it until late, so I was glad to get done what I did.  I changed the banner picture at the top of my blog. It's a picture of the outside of the ocean front Starbucks at Myrtle Beach. ^_^ I'm loving it at the moment.

Weird day...

When my Fitbit went off to wake me up this morning, I was so out of it.  I felt horrible and I just didn't want to move.  I finally did get up and fix my coffee.  I didn't walk! I should have, but I've felt so gross lately.  I decided to skip today's walk and perhaps go later.  I ended up not going later.  It's sort of a good thing I didn't.

My sister called (which is a rare thing indeed) and said she'd left some bags of groceries on my front porch.  I couldn't hear a lot of what she was saying, so I don't know why she was dropping this stuff off.  It was some good stuff, too!  There were three bags of almonds, two jars of honey, some quinoa, flax sees, basmati rice, and more!  I can use most of the things she brought except for some spicy sauces and several boxes of tea.  I don't drink tea and I never have! lol I can give the tea and sauces to a friend that will use them. I do not like to waste food.  Some of the stuff she gave me was organic, too.  It was some good stuff.  I don't know if someone gave her a bunch of stuff and she had too much or what.  Oh well, I can put it all (well most of it) to use.  What I can't will go to someone who can.

I finished my puzzle today.  I really liked this one.  It was a bit hard, though.  It took longer to do than usual, but that is okay.  I'll post a picture at the end of this post.  Oh, remember how my MBP was acting up last night and i had to do updates?  Well, it was acting up today too.  I went through and deleted a bunch of stuff that I don't use to help it run better.  That seems to have helped. I hope so, anyway!  Here is the completed puzzle.


La la la.....

Yeah, I totally forgot to post last night!  I was going to.  I did my French and then planned to post to my blog.  I got distracted and then realized it was after midnight. D'oh!  I figured I'd just wait and post today!  I walked yesterday on my regular route, but I did it in the evening instead of at my usual time.  It was hot out there, so I'm sure it was worse during my usual time.  I hope it isn't as hot tomorrow!

I skipped my walk today.  I haven't felt well since before I got back from the beach.  I don't know what is going on with me.  I stayed home today and relaxed.  I finished the puzzle I started yesterday evening and did another one!  At the end of this post, I'll share the picture of the one from yesterday where I left off and where it's finished today.  I'll also put the one I did today.  The humingbird one is the last from the box of six.  It was hard because so much of it was the same color.  I got out the other one this afternoon and decided to start on it.  The pieces were huge so I started it and then just finished it. :p . It wasn't too bad.  I wish all puzzles had pieces that size.  It made it much easier for me to see them!

So, here are the puzzles.  I hope to get back to walking tomorrow at my regular time.  I also plan to start another puzzle.  I'm not sure which one yet.  I still have plenty from the beach and I have two leftover from the batch I bought before I went to the beach.


Sunday Slowness.

Yeah, it's been a very slow day.  I did all my usual Sunday stuff yesterday, so I didn't have any of that to do.  I spent the day relaxing.  I am going to try to get back to walking tomorrow if it doesn't rain.  We'll see how it goes.  

I finished my puzzle.  It was hard to finish!  Pieces were so similarly shaped, that when I got done, I had two pieces left, two holes for pieces, and neither went with the other! lol I finally got the wrong pieces out and in the right places.It's a pretty puzzle.  I'm not sure which one I'll start next.  I only have a stack to choose from. :p

I did my weekly for next week in my bullet journal and I love the color coordination of the Mildliner and the washi.  This layout is my usual weekly.  I love it because I have plenty of room for stuff during the week and the right page is for anything I want to toss in.  Stickers I find, receipts from places I visit, etc.  It works out well.  If I end up not having anything to put on the right page, I'll do a text entry in it.  


Friday, again!

What a difference a week makes.  Last Friday I was at beautiful Myrtle Beach.  I would probably be typing this blog post out on the balcony.  Sadly, I'm home and posting from my bedroom.  I've seen a lot of it this week since I've been sick.  I'm feeling a LOT better today.  I'm not well yet, and I'm not going to overdo it, but I can tell I'll feel normal again soon.

I finally got those poor clothes out of the dryer from Sunday and started another load of stuff.  I also did something interesting. I adulted. lol . My toilet seat cracked before the beach trip.  It's probably been on that toilet since it was installed many, many years ago.  It was just starting to look worn.  It cracked where I could still use it but I had to be careful!  I have another bathroom that cannot be used so I just swapped out the seats on Sunday for the time being.  I went for a search on Amazon and found a nice seat for less than$18 on Amazon.  The one I had in the other bathroom was plastic and it didn't feel solid to me.  I wanted one like I had so I went looking.  This one was nice and it was a great price so I ordered it.  Prime shipping and it was here today.  I was able to clean the toilet and while I was doing it, I got an alert on my phone.  The seat was delivered. LOL!  Good timing all around.  

I put the new seat on and it's nice. It's sturdy and a lot like my old one, but it's so new and nice looking.  I love it.  Good old Amazon!  I remember when I got that plastic one, it was expensive so I was happy to see this one for so cheap on Amazon!

Okay so I mentioned this in the post that disappeared yesterday before I could posted it.  I mentioned how many puzzles I got at the beach.  How many did I get?  Twenty one!  Fifteen were individual ones and there was that one that had six in it.  All but three were brand new and still sealed and three are vintage.  Hopefully I can start one this weekend.  I'm going to wait until Monday to try to walk again.

One, because I want to make sure I am ready, and two it's supposed to be rainy and bad weather all weekend.  Sounds like a good weekend for coffee, puzzles, and reading!  Speaking of reading, I've gotten back into the book I'm reading.  I'm still not loving it, but it's getting more interesting and I hate to give up on a book.  I hope to get a lot more done on it or finish it this weekend.

Okay, I guess that is good for today.  I am copying this just in case I have another error.  I want this post to show.  I am not typing it up again! LOL!

Hopefully on the mend.

I have felt a little better today, but I'm not where near back to normal.  I mainly stayed around the house and didn't do a lot.  I did some work on organizing my Starbucks cards.  I got some new ones at the beach so I wanted to get those all sorted and put in my binder.  I also went through and found that I had some ones with pin intact.  I changed all the ones that I had in my collection that weren't like that.  I also had some 'special' cards and I put them in the other binder.  I was glad to get one task done today! 

I finished one of the books I was reading too.  I just have to finish the one I started on the Kindle waaay back in May.  It's sort of meh, so it's been slow going.  I might skip it and start something else. I haven't decided yet.  I'm just not getting into the story.  I'll give it a few more pages tonight and see if it picks up.

I do have a picture to share.  On the night of the storm at the beach, I walked to the SkyWheel/Pavilion area on the beach like I had been doing and went up on the boardwalk to the Gay Dolphin. I'm pretty sure I already mentioned that, but just in case. :P . When I left the boardwalk and got back on the beach, I took this picture of the Skywheel.  I think it's my favorite picture I took of it while there:




Sorry about last night's post.  I got to watching Adventure Time on Hulu and it was too late to pull out my Macbook Pro to make a post, so I just typed up a quick one with the Goodyear blimp picture!  It was in my city this weekend.  I saw it go over while on my walk and took several pictures of it.  I've loved seeing it since I was a little girl. My daddy worked at Goodyear when I was growing up. ^_^

Today I woke up and it was hotter than it had been yesterday.  Yesterday's walk was horrid because of the heat.  I decided today that I would just skip it!  I did, too!  The fact that it was well after 4 am when I got to sleep last night probably had a lot to do with it too.  I was just so tired this morning.  I'll get back on track tomorrow.  I just hope it isn't as hot.  I didn't do my workouts today either. ^^;  Yeah, it was a lazy day.  I haven't felt too great lately, so I think a day off of doing nothing might help.  I can't be sick now, I leave for Myrtle Beach on Sunday! ^____________^  I can't wait to -post from the beach.  Yes, the MBP is going with me.  We'll be staying at a place we've never stayed before, so I'll have a new place to explore.  I think there is a coffee shop in the hotel.  Not a Starbucks, but still that is cool!

Good Grief!

Yes, it's been over a month since I last posted.  I totally didn't mean for that to happen.  I am over my sickness, but I still can't seem to get the energy to do anything.  I'm behind on my letters and everything!  I really need to catch up on life.  I haven't walked since August.  I keep meaning to get back on track and it just doesn't seem to happen.

I have some personal issues that I can't go into right now, and that has been weighing on my mind, too.  The only thing I have been actively doing is keeping up my Bullet Journal!  I use my bujo everyday.  It makes me look like I'm doing something. :)  I promise to try to get on here and post more.  I wanted to do a daily post when I started the blog.  

If you look to the menu at the right, you'll notice something new.  I've decided to try Nanowrimo this year.  I signed up in the past and didn't complete it. I'm starting fresh.  New account at Nanowrimo.  I hope to get my novel written this time. I already have an idea of one that I've been mulling over for some time now.  I just need to sit down and get it on paper.  I figured why no join Nanowrimo to get myself inspired!

Well, now....

I know I haven't posted in a long time.  I'm still sick and not feeling my best.  I wish I could get over this crap already! I'm so tired of being sick.  I did get to go to the beach from September 5-11.  It was a nice trip, but I didn't feel well on the entire trip, sadly.  It was nice to be at my favorite place, however.  I hope to do a write up of my trip on here soon.

I have recently gotten into Bullet Journaling.  It's fun and it's bringing out the creative side of me that I didn't know I had! I actually started my bujo at the beach, but the planner I picked wasn't sturdy enough.  It began to come apart almost immediately.  When I got home, I was able to get a better one and I've been using it everyday.  I love having my bujo and I carry it with me all the time. I am journal / pen / paper obsessed, so this is just helping. :p I will post some of my pages here soon.  I am really new to the whole bujo scene, but I'm loving it.  I've joined some communities for bullet journalers and I have been getting a lot of inspiration from them.  If you haven't heard of bullet journals, check them out!  It's so cool.

Oh yes, I know!

It has been a very long time since I posted.  I've been sick since the 18th of this month.  I'm still not well, but this current course of antibiotics are working and I should have this licked soon!  The last day I walked was the 18th and the last day I did workouts was the 19th.  I'm hoping to get back to both by this weekend.  I'm not going to push myself to fast, too soon.  I know I feel a lot better today than I did yesterday!  I had one antibiotic and it didn't help at all, I was switched to another, but it wasn't for long enough so I didn't get better.

Yesterday, I went to Med Express and got a new antibiotic and I can already tell that this one is going to do the trick.  I hate being sick and missing out on life!  I have done nothing but lie around since I got sick.  I tried to walk two days ago and that was a mistake!  I got to the park and was going to just stay there and then walk back.l  I ended up calling a friend to pick me up.  I'm going to give myself a few days to get this new antibiotic in my system and then work on walking again.

I am going to a friend's house tonight for a birthday celebration.  There will be pizza and I plan to eat my share. :)  I am looking forward to that.  I need to get out and enjoy myself for a while!
