Holy Poop! How did it get to be Sunday already?
Freezing Cold Monday Morning
Monday kicked off DEEP FREEZE week in Nova Scotia. Every year we have a week like this but every year we seem to forget and it feels worse. Mixed with the snow and the bleak sky on Monday it felt like to coldest darkest LONGEST day of the year. Turns out it was ACTUALLY Blue Monday so I was well within my rights to feel crappy! As I have said I am having a much easier time this year with my S.A.D for which I am very grateful. I was worried that this would be a bad year because of Lulu, my leg and my brother. Instead I feel like I am calm and in control most of the time. I like it!
Tuesday was weigh in day and HuuuuHaaa!! I was down again. I am so happy, each success builds more confidence and makes it easier to keep making good choices. In the evening I got to finally go see Les Mis with some of my homegirls. It was SO good, I have loved Les Mis for more than 2 decades. I have seen productions of it in three cities, on two continents. I have known every word since the 9th grade. It is a passion that my brother Stephen and I have shared. I have always wanted to see a movie made that did justice to the work and I am pleased that this one did. In addition when I got home on from the movie I had an email from big brother Mike. Tuesday is quickly becoming my favorite day!
Wednesday was even more freezing than the days before. I spent most of the day battling a slamming headache and came right home after work and crawled into bed. That’s All!
Thursday the headache continued but I plowed through work and went to my physio appointment. Is it weird that I have actually started to look forward to these torture sessions? I work hard and I do everything that Julie says. Sometimes it hurts, more often than not it’s uncomfortable. But it is clearly working, Thursday she liberated me from my walking cast, at least at home. We celebrated that night with fast food. Some habit die harder than others. 😉
Friday was low key, work was quiet so I actually got some stuff done. I like it when I get to follow up on stuff that has been sitting on my desk for too long. I even cleaned my desk which, trust me, was very needed. It was so cold I drank about 4 cups of tea. I have been trying to slowly give up Diet Coke and it seems that I have been replacing it with green tea. I suppose there are worst addictions. Friday night I flaked out on Aimee’s sofa and we geeked out. It was a nice way to end the week.
Saturday I declared the day it SELFISH MEGHAN DAY! I often find my weekend totally eaten up by errands and social engagements to the point where I feel almost as burnt out by the weekend as I do on Friday afternoon. I needed at least one day of this weekend to do only exactly what I wanted to do. I don’t know what a day like that would look like for YOU but for me it meant sleeping in until 9am (yes, that IS sleeping in) and staying in my PJ’s for the whole day. I watched almost a whole season on Law & Order SVU (prepare for weird dreams) I had major snuggles with my pups, drank my weight in Diet Coke (oops) took a lot of pictures. I learned how to poach an egg, I cleaned out both hall closets top to bottom, I vacuumed the sofa’s and the living room floor. I found the lost treasure of my dining room table with was buried under a mountain of crap. I read several months worth of a cool new blog I found. I used some gift cards I won from work to order in dinner from Swiss Chalet. I was mean to my husband because he has a cold and my brand of tough love believes you can bully cold germs into submission. Then I crawled into bed early. It was a perfect day!
Today is Sunday. Because bullying cold germs is actually pretty ineffectual I woke up with my husband’s cold. That’s how we roll. Bwahaha! I had to cancel plans that I was really looking forward to but I was not up to much beyond the sofa but I did take the unforeseen opportunity to catch up on some much needed laundry time. I’ll be crawling into bed any moment now and tomorrow we’ll start it all over again.
