Giraffe Report

So, today was pretty much forfeit. *sigh* I could probably blame it on everything I did yesterday, which might be true, but it’s also possible that it’s random.

Yesterday, I got up and my blood sugar was a little low, so I went to Starbucks for breakfast. I came back home and danced around the living room for a while. Then, I got to meet a friend who has been living out of state and celebrate her little girl’s first birthday with the family. I’m *so* excited they will be moving back soon! We were there about 3 hours or so, and then it was time for her daughter to take a nap. I was ready for a nap, too. My stamina is nothing like it used to be!

But, I had a whole list of things I intended to get done, so I went about my day. First, I stopped at Home Depot to get some supplies so that I can fix the window in my bathroom shower. I wandered all over the store and had about 5 different employees help me, but I think I finally left with everything I needed. I was *exhausted*.

Grocery store next. I had made up a grocery list and was determined to get everything I planned, although I felt so bad that I was sagging on the cart as I shopped. So thirsty! I think I got 15 different beverages, just because. I had a caffeinated energy drink in the parking lot.

Once home, I put away the groceries and started tackling the window. I knew that if I stopped then, nothing would get done. I quit after applying the caulk, since it needed to dry for a while, and resolved to finish tomorrow (today).

I talked to a friend on the phone, took a short walk, had dinner, watched some TV, then went to bed.

Today, I also had a lot of plans. However, I wasn’t feeling well, so I stayed in bed later than I had anticipated. I got up around 10:30 am and made lunch, and ate it on the couch watching TV. Then, I went back to bed. I got up again about 5 pm or so, feeling awful. Just exhausted and hurting and really bad arrhythmias. Everywhere from freezie cold to super hot; I don’t *think* I”m getting sick…

This blog post is about the extent of what I’ve done today. I have *so* much more that I need to take care of. *sigh* At least now, a few hours later, I only feel mildly exhausted and a little nauseated. I can work through that. My priorities right now are to finish up the bathroom (so I can take a shower in the morning!), and write my paper. If I have any more time, I’ll get to work processing my images from this weekend. Then, you’ll get to *see* what I’ve been up to!

Jennie Giraffe!

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone is feeling well today!

Does anyone remember those giraffe toys? Where you push up on the bottom and they collapse?

Well, I’ve taken them to represent me when I’m sick.


In looking for stickers and such for my EC planner, I found these adorable giraffe stickers, and figured that I can use them to mark when I’m feeling particularly bad. That way, when I look at my planner, I don’t see a bunch of depressing pages, but a whole herd of cuteness!
