Seriously, I got nothing...

Ok, tonight is going to be a short one (or maybe just random - I say short so often and then end up writing quite a bit once I get going!)... this has been a long day, and I'm honestly ready for bed. I started my day by getting my fasting blood work done for my doctors appointment on December 4th. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal - except it took 45 minutes for them to get 22 vials of blood out of me... 22!

So after having the life taken out of me - I could finally eat... and for some reason I was famished today... I had three meals before 1, and then another at 2 and another at 5... which really isn't that bad, but I just couldn't get satisfied - and it's been a long time since I've truly been scavenging around for food. (At least that is one benefit of being in an office rather than at home!)

I talked John into going out to dinner tonight, and boy - that didn't go as well as it could have. We tried a new mexican restaurant (for us), and John was less than impressed. Overall it wasn't bad, but I've had better in terms of the actual meal... but something went haywire in me with the chips and salsa... I went nuts! Now, that's relative because I can't exactly eat as much as some people... BUT I ate a lot of it... and I don't even like salsa... what's up with that?!

I think I ate a total of 5 bites of my meal... but the waiters couldn't figure out that I was done - so we sat there for a while waiting for them to realize that I wasn't "still working" on eating. We got out of there, and I immediately crashed on the couch in a mexican food coma for a couple of hours...

The sad thing is that I'm now ready to go to bed for the night!! Oh how this allergy/sinus thing is kicking my butt!! I seriously feel like my 70 pound lab is sitting on my chest right now... and I have a cough that sounds like a smoker... NICE! I'm praying that a good night's sleep without an alarm waking me up in the morning will do the trick!


  1. I hope you're feeling better tomorrow and that you get a good night's sleep. Maybe your body was just craving something salty and spicy tonight and that salsa just hit the spot. I've done that before with a couple of foods. It's strange what your body will crave every now and then.

    Twenty-two vials of blood? Oh my! You deserved a dinner out!

  2. Rest up! Chips and salsa are hit and miss with me too... ONE too many, and I'm a carb coma for hours.

  3. 22 vials-- is that literal??? I didn't know they could take that many at once.


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
