I am so grateful that Friday has finally rolled around. For whatever reason, the week after a holiday seems to drag on and on and on with no end in sight. So, after a seemingly long week in which I have not been in the best of moods, I am really so very happy that Friday has arrived and I can soon start enjoying the weekend.
Here are some random notes for you on this fine
I did, in fact, end up going to the doctor today. I took some Alka
Seltzer Night Time on Thursday night at 7:15 and am not joking when I
say I was asleep by 7:45 and did not wake up until the alarm clock went
off Friday morning. When I woke on Friday, my throat was sore and so as
soon as my doctor's office opened at 8:00 a.m. I called and made and
appointment because I wanted to hit this thing head on and knock it out
before it knocks me out. Thankfully, I am not contagious and I
apparently am just having more sinus problems. I blame it on the
weather. I know you supposedly cannot get sick from the weather, but
seriously, wearing sandals on Thanksgiving and a wool coat two days
later has to factor in to the sinus issues some of us Huntsvillians
face. I'm convinced of it. Anyway, I am picking up an anti-biotic this
afternoon and hope to be feeling much better soon. By the way, I think a
sure sign that you go to the doctor way too often is when you wait with
baited breath to find out what he is going to prescribe. I always try
to guess in advance. Another sign you go to the doctor too much is when
you get really excited about being prescribed a strong anti-biotic that
you haven't had in a while. Both of these happened to me today.
Why do Funyuns never go on sale? Am I the only person who enjoys Funyuns
on occasion? I wouldn't want to eat them every day, but they are good
every now and then; but they are never, never on sale and they are kind
of pricey for a junk food.
As someone who loves to cook, I almost hate to admit this, but I really
like instant mashed potatoes. I'm sure this goes back to my sorority
days when, I'm sure, they were served whenever we had mashed potatoes;
but seriously, it is amazing to me how good they are. Am I alone in this
Season Three of Downton Abbey starts five weeks from Sunday!
Five Weeks! Oh, I can hardly wait. I mean, I don't want to rush the
holiday season, but I also really want to know, will Matthew and Lady
Mary get married?
My brother got his one year of sobriety coin last night. I'm super proud
of that guy and pray he is able to stay clean. He is also going back to
school in January to work on his Master's degree in counseling.
Tonight is the semi-finals of the football playoffs. It will be the
toughest game to date as Madison Academy will be taking on Lauderdale
County. LC's only loss is to MA so they will be out for revenge. I'm a
little nervous about this one and also very excited and also very
grateful that I'm not contagious so that I can go to the game.
Dry skin in the winter is my nemesis. I heard on the news the other
night of sesame seed oil that Neutrogena makes and it is supposed to
help with dry skin. I guess you put it on when you get out of the
shower. I can't seem to find it but when I do I plan to give it a go and
will let you know what I think about it.
Alright, I suppose this is all the rambling I will do for now. I hope everyone has a great, fun and healthy weekend!
