Monday. Blech

Well, I've had a weird couple of days. I've had a lot of trouble with migraine headaches. Yesterday I got a bad one after dinner. I lost it all and then drank a little sprite and ate some saltines to calm it down.  I went over my calories by 200.   It was better when I woke up this morning and then this afternoon it seems to be back. I have trouble getting all my water in when I'm feeling queasy. I'm trying.

I am also having trouble with my left knee. I went to my son's boy scout dinner the other night which was actually at a nearby camp.  Walking to the car I twisted my knee a little in a hole. It was fine until I got up yesterday and I really could barely walk most of the day.  I didn't do much yesterday in light of these issues. It's better today, but I still feel it and I'm limping a little. This means I ended up canceling with my trainer again. GRRRR. And I don't know if I'll be able to do TKD tomorrow. I don't deal very well with this shit.

Other than that, I'm doing A-OK.

I'm nearly done with my shopping. I haven't wrapped a thing. Sigh. I was thinking I'd go home and try to do some of that while the boy is at his boy scout meeting. The girls love to "help" with it.  I used to love wrapping and getting my packages "just so."  Now, I just want to get it done and the girls enjoy helping, so who cares if they are perfect, right? Anyway, in light of my feeling so blechy, I doubt I get anything done.

Today I've had a bagel thin for breakfast and chicken noodle soup for lunch. I am still really nauseated and I think it is my migraine as it is back. I hope I'm not getting the GI bug going around. I don't have time to get sick. I am not hungry at all and I doubt I eat much tonight for dinner. I'll just try to make myself get down the rest of my minimum fluids.

I'm very boring today. Sorry. Hope everyone survived their Monday.


  1. I had to give up on my presents looking just how I want this year.....my 6 and 4 year LOVE to help and I won't even try to guess how much tape we went through this year!!!!

    Hope your knee feels better SOON!!!

  2. I had a migrane, too .
    From lack of caffeine.
    All better now!
    Get Well Soon, Doc!

  3. damn knees, we should totally get them made out of adamantium so they don't hurt no matter what we do!

    I don't know about you but at this point, I am just hoping to hang on with small losses through the holidays, so don't get too aggravated with this last stretch.

  4. Hope you feel better. Hey, what's the deal with the CB player who got Vick's autograph after the game? Dumb move on his part. I'll bet they're talking about that in Big D. BTW, I'm really happy for Jon Kitna, a Tacoma native, QB for lowly Central Washington University, where he was studying to be a math teacher. Amazing that he has had a 15 year career and started for four teams.

  5. Just tell people you hurt your knee kicking some serious ass in TKD. You don't have to admit you stepped in a tiny little hole at a boy scouts dinner when it happened. But hope you're better soon!

  6. Alan- yes that whole thing has been all over the news. Luckily for him Cliff Lee news will over take that today. He's just a young kid and I don't really care that he got the autograph. And, Jon Kitna has been fabulous and I really respect him. In some ways I'd like to see him start instead of Romo. The frat boy goof ball.

  7. Yeah, mondays suck. I had to go to my yearly appointment and that sucked, but I was also suffering from the last vestiges of the migraine that had me crawling on the floor sunday night. I think great mondays are just few and far between.


Progress to TouchDown and GOALLLL!!
