Life’s Happenings

I am so tired today.  I tried to start my 50 grams of Protein yesterday but that didn’t even come close.  I developed a horrible Migraine Headache with nausea plus I was up all night in the restroom.  To much milk and cheese, I think.  So, excited about eating cheese again I went a bit overboard and I am Lactose Intolerant.  Even with Lactaid, I have issues.  I hope it is just the type of protein that is causing me problems and this won’t become constant because of the amount.  I don’t need constant/excessive headaches again.  They were really starting to even out.

I got a call from a Surgeon’s office yesterday saying that my referral was approved.  However, I don’t drive freeways and the office was to far away in location. so I called the insurance company and had it changed to another Surgeon who is closer to home.  I need to call today to confirm the change has been made.  I can hardly believe they actually put a rush on something!

My poor husband is going crazy at work as they heap more and more work on him but the good news is: he just got another bonus which means he already received two bonuses this year alone.  I said “Good. because another large bill is on the way.”  Yep, just the way the cycle goes round.


Acting Weird Without Drinking

I went to a party on Saturday with a lot of people I went to High School with.  Some I’d seen at a party last year however to make it more confusing this time, a lot of people who showed up were from 2-3 graduating years back.  I have always been terrible at faces and names.  I can barely remember my neighbors from a few days ago.  If you are not in the expected setting  I just don’t recall who you are.  An ADD characteristic, perhaps?  Anyway, I wound up having a conversation with someone I thought was someone else,  (Luckily, they would be drunk by the end of the evening so hopefully won’t remember it.)     having a conversation with someone of whom I had no idea who they were until someone came up and said “Hi So and So” and introduced themselves. and hugging someone and saying, “Oh, It’s good to see you” when the person I hugged wasn’t the person I meant to hug at all, but somebody told me they were.”   I did not even drink at the party and have not had a drink in about a year.  I have simply had no desire to and I think I have been nervous of the possible reactions of drinking due to all the medications I am taking.

I love to help people at Christmas (or anytime actually) and someone posted on the main Operation Christmas Child Facebook Wall that they may not be able to provide Christmas for her 7-year-old Grand-Daughter so I called and talked to the lady before going to Walgreen’s and buying some gifts: and mailing a box of stuff along with all the other gifts I sent out today.

  I pray the bills won’t be to high this month but I believe God put this on my heart so he will provide.  I mean we will be able to afford the bills.  I just hate the thought of having overspent especially when I am usually so good about buying most everything early.  Most of the extra spending on Christmas this year went to help other people with only a few last-minute gifts I had not bought yet and postage was a bit but could have been much worse if my sister wasn’t coming and picking up her packages.  I am thankful this year that postage goes by weight.
