Childhood Friend!, Sick Day ...

February 5th, 2018 at 05:02 pm

I was feeling a bit run down yesterday when I woke up, but powered through it because I had so much I wanted to accomplish.

This morning I was still feeling ugh, and barely made it through my daily smoothie.

Got to work and started off with the standing desk up, but after ten minutes, had to put it down because I just wasn't feeling it. By 9:30 I realized I wasn't going to make it through the day.

I got home just as the snow started up again, and slept through most of the snowstorm. We got another inch, maybe two inches. Glad I didn't have to drive home in it!

I'm still feeling blergh, but hopefully another nights sleep will help.

I get so frustrated with my body sometimes. Why doesn't the stuff that make other people feel so healthy and full of energy do the same for me??? Eating the junk doesn't make me feel healthy or full of energy either ... so guess keep on keeping on, and at some point it will get better.

So anyway ...

When I woke up from my 4 hour nap (sweet!) I was looking on FB and saw a childhood friend posting about needing an air bnb room because she was going to be in my city!! Wait what? So I messaged her to find out when it would be - she said Tuesday, Feb 27? I think - she has a job interview here and in O town the day before!

I told her I needed to check with DH, but if she hadn't already booked a room she could stay here.

I haven't seen her since I was 13 years old! She lived in my neighborhood in Albuquerque. We would play at each others houses, walk all over the neighborhood talking about many things including the latest Days of Our Lives episode Smile, ride bikes all over, etc. One time we even tried to get a job at a local fast food place together (but were told we were too young.)

When DH got up to go into work, I surprised him by being here. Smile Then I told him about my friend's post. Surprisingly, he seemed okay with it (after asking me where we'd put her Smile ) Unsurprisingly, he said he was okay with it as long as he didn't have to do anything extra for it. Urgh.

I told him that beyond not leaving his clothes all over the kitchen when he got home from work, and making sure the cat litter boxes in the basement were clean smelling I would take care of anything else.

So many times I have to remind myself that he is not my dad. He wasn't raised in a home where the dad did much at all, and his mom pretty much expected NOTHING out of him. So yeah, moms of little boys - please expect them to do stuff so they turn into men who do stuff as a matter of course!

I'll probably take that Monday off from work so I can do whatever last minute cleaning that needs to be done. On the 19th I'll probably rent a rug doctor to try to get the carpets clean..er.

My friend has multiple pets, so hopefully she won't be too put off by the house.

It would just be beyond cool if she got the job, and moved here with her family! I might have someone to go do things with once in awhile! Maybe invite her family here for dinner sometimes or something.

Even if she gets the job in O instead, I'll still have someone within reasonable distance to get together with once in awhile.

I really, really hope she gets one of the jobs she's interviewing for!

I heard the stock market tanked today. Haven't checked since this morning. Sounds like a good time to make my ROTH purchases for the month. Smile

    Sorry to hear you are under the weather and hope you feel better soon!

    How nice that you will see your friend and she may move nearby! I've had a couple of get-togethers the past two years with friends I hadn't seen in 30 or more years and it has been very fun. It definitely doesn't feel like 30 years!

    About the health stuff not working for you like it does for others--have you had your thyroid antibodies tested and a cortisol test run? It might be worth asking your doctor to have these things tested to see if the numbers are in range. Anyways, I hope today is just a temporary lull.

    Tanks Dido - Yes, I have low thyroid regulated by meds - but haven't had my cortizol checked. 30 years ... yeah, it has been that long. Wow!

    Research fats (the good ones) that provide our bodies fuel. Lots of science backing up the need for the medium chain triglycerides (fatty acids).

    Hope you are feeling better. Hope you have a nice visit with your childhood friend. Nice of you to put her up.

  5. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    ccf - I eat lots of good fats - nuts, seeds, sometimes avocadoes. I probably indulge too much on the nuts ...

    Thanks Rob. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Have you been tested for auto immune diseases? Or gluten sensitivity? Or a dairy or legume or bean allergy?

    Unfortunately, some vegetarians never feel right eating that way and I think it has to be genetic. Why else would some people feel great on it and others feel crappy? Why do some people lose weight while others gain eating vegetarian? Maybe try a week of eating ethically sourced fish and chicken and see how your body responds. If it isn't positive, you can rule it out as the source of the problem.
