Thankful That It's Friday!

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 day:

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 love?

 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!

I am really surprised that you like instant mashed potatoes :) I am not a big fan, unless they are from KFC and I have KFC gravy to accompany.
I hope your medicine kicks in quickly - No time to be sick this holiday season.
Gooooo Mustangs!
Have a good weekend.

I seriously get so excited when my doctors suggests a steroid shot, a DosPak, and a round of Cefdinir. That means I'll get tons of stuff done because the steroids give me so much energy. The Cefdinir doesn't make me sick so I can take them anytime.

Nina LOVES Funyuns, and no, they never go on sale.
