I’m writing right now because I can’t sleep. So I may ramble a bit. There will probably be some interesting information here…but some of it will probably just me running off at the mouth…or at the keyboard really…..
Of course, I make an appointment with Dr. Gray to have another lumbar puncture, and I start feeling better. (Isn’t that always the way?)
My hearing is still way down in my left ear, but I don’t feel as dizzy, as off-balance, and no mini spins for the past couple of days. *shrug*
As you probably know, today was my birthday. (well, seeing what time it is, perhaps I should say, yesterday was my birthday.)
I had a very nice day. I normally, really like my birthday, and want to do something special. Something exciting, with friends….the whole sha-bang! This year, I was feeling pretty low-key. I don’t really feel like it was by birthday. But it was a very nice day!
The hubby and I went to the mall and I did some shopping! I haven’t shopped at all this year. We’ve been trying not to buy anything new. So everything I’ve been buying has been second-hand. But today, I decided to do a little shopping. I needed a new bra. No, I was not going to buy a used one! Ew. I’ve gained weight since I bought the last ones, and they have stretched out….well you get the picture. I’ve noticed when most women gain weight they get bigger boobs. I don’t. My band size gets bigger, but my bust size is the same. For example, I’ve worn a 32DD, 34D, and a 36C. So as you see, my boobs stay the same. (If you are a man reading this you will not understand, but I think most of the women will.) Bra sizing is so weird. The way you are supposed to measure it is just strange to me. I measured a 38B today, and the first bra I tried on that size, fit. But I wasn’t crazy about it. The next one, the band was too big…so I ended up with a 36C.
I also got a lovely dress! We were shopping at Macy’s, both of the items I got were on sale, and I had a $20 off coupon if you spend $50 or more, so my total came to about $34! hehehe!
We also went by the game store, and picked up a couple of used Wii games. I love the fact that if you buy pre-owned games you can try them out for a week…or is it two? Then if you don’t like it you can take it back! I will never buy a new game. We’ve been having a ball lately playing games. I used to hate playing any type of video game, but I really like the ones that make you move. I told Stuart last night that it was the first time I played a video game where I didn’t feel completely inadequate. I was keeping up with him! That is saying a lot!
I’ve been working on losing weight. I think I mentioned I’ve lost 6 pounds. I stepped on the scale a couple of day ago, and it was down a few more pounds. But for the past couple of days, I…well, I’m going to be blunt here…I’m so constipated. I do not get this way. I’m so uncomfortable. I broke down and took something tonight to try to help it along…I hope it works. I didn’t cut down on my veggie intake. No I haven’t upped it, because of the fructose intolerance. I haven’t been eating any grains though, and I’m thinking that’s what is going on. But if I add any back in, I stop losing weight. *sigh* Guess, I’ll have to start taking fiber. (I must confess, today I completely went off my diet! I had some Gluten Free carrot cake, and some ice cream….Hey, it was my birthday!!)
I was thrilled that I got Just Dance, for the Wii. I got it a little early, so I’ve been playing it for about a week now. It’s so much fun! And what a work out!! My husband also got me exactly what I asked for, a back scratcher. There are just too many times I have an itch I can’t scratch!
My birthday was a good one. I spent the day with my hubby. I received 56 Happy Birthday wishes on Facebook, and still counting….(funny though, nothing from my father or my sister…hummm. What a supportive family I have.) Stuart and I played games on the Wii for hours…..it was a nice day.
Now, for tomorrow…I need to go to the grocery store, do some chores around the house, and I’m getting a massage! Yeah, it’ll be a good day.
Some day soon, I’ll be getting my darling husband to take me out to dinner…we didn’t do that today…and I can wear my new dress!
