Good Morning! Happy Sunday!
I spent Friday and Saturday in the
I had to get myself together, though, it IS Justin’s Birthday Week, after all!
I spent most of the day reading up on how to get rid of my cramps. I am surprised there are still articles out there that I have not already read! I have yet to find the correct concoction of Young Living essential oils to get me through this tough time, so ibuprofen it was.
If you have been sticking with me for a while, you know I have a major sugar addiction and a lot of my problems with digestion and my menstrual cycle point to: grain, dairy and sugar. #thestruggleisreal
The Plan: get rid of grains, dairy and sugar
We will get through this together!
We had reservations at The American Restaurant. This is Justin’s FAVORITE restaurant, or at least it was until we went to Justus Drugstore on Thursday night! We both were not feeling like indulging in another huge meal so I canceled the reservation and we ate mexican food and saw a movie!
I was not in good shape. I stayed in bed most of the day and made bad decisions. The worst decision was not going to see my NEW NEPHEW!! My brother Chaz and his wife, Becky (remember Becky?) had their baby!
Here is the order of bad decisions:
- I was dressed and ready to go to the hospital as soon as they said they wanted visitors, but undressed and got back into bed when I remembered we had a sitter coming and Justin and I could go to the hospital together.
- We didn’t leave our house until late.
- I INSISTED we stop and buy them “new parent” gifts.
- We had already purchased tickets to a movie which I thought started later than it did.
- Neither of us had eaten all day.
- We skipped the hospital to eat and see the movie!
I know. I feel ashamed of me too.
On the good side! I will be heading to the hospital as soon as they let me know they are ready for visitors today and since most people went yesterday, I will have them all to myself!!!
And I will bring extra gifts. And food. And 1 million dollars. (just kidding, I don’t have any of those things.)
The two movies we saw in the past two days were
They are both excellent movies!
Denzel Washington does not disappoint in the “The Equalizer”. He gives his normal top notch performance and I was filled with both anxiety and the feeling of “YES!” throughout most of the movie.
“The Maze Runner” is evidently a book series which neither of us have read but it didn’t ruin the movie for us. I left there exhausted. It’s a cool movie because it makes you try to figure stuff out and, since we saw it in the Prime theater where the seats vibrate, it had me jumping and jerking around in my seat!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
