How was your Thanksgiving? I hope it was great. I caught a few of you on Instagram and Facebook and it looked like everyone had a great time with family and friends.
I don’t know what happened to me but I had the week off and spent the entire week battling some unknown infection. When you have Lupus, doctors typically blame everything on it so I don’t really know what I had. I just know that I was down for the count. I was able to pull the meal together but I did not have an appetite for it. and had trouble eating, which kills me because it’s my favorite holiday of the year.
I am very thankful to have had the time off though. I didn’t plan to spend it being sick but at least I had the time to stay home because there was no way I could go to work in that condition. I spent most of it on the couch watching movies. The weather was sunny but crisp which made for some nice couch time. I just feel as if I lost the entire week. It’s a weird feeling. Very much like falling down a rabbit hole.
Yesterday, I didn’t feel all that great but I had to get out of the house so we drove to Santa Barbara, did a little shopping and had a nice dinner out. Also, somehow all the decorations went up so we are set in that department.
The beach was just so gorgeous. Look at that view!
I’ve got a cup of coffee in my hand and it’s the first time all week I’ve been able to enjoy it. I am listening to my church’s service online and debating whether I will make it to the service today.
My son had to go to Hollywood to shoot some promotional stuff for the show he’s doing right now, The Cat’s Meow but he did not pick a good day to do it since the streets are shut down for the parade. Sigh. The Hub went with him. The Girl is still sleeping. The sun is streaming through the window and I am just loving the quiet.
I am off on Monday and I am so glad I decided to take the extra day because it is going to be a busy week:
Monday: Rehearsal for The Girl and Teen. Two different shows.
Tuesday: Doctor’s appointment. Unrelated to my current issue.
Wednesday: Rehearsal for The Teen.
Thursday: Hair appointment, Book Club Holiday Party.
Friday: Opening night of The Cat’s Meow, Middle school leader Holiday party.
Saturday: Working concessions and seeing The Cat’s Meow this night. It also runs the following weekend so if there’s not enough help I may wait until next week.
Rereading Kafka on the Shore. I am at 50% right now. Wasn’t able to do any reading this past week so I hope to finish it up tonight and tomorrow. I am about 60% into Irving’s Avenue of Mysteries and it’s grown on me. Such a rough start but I am enjoying it now.
Oh my goodness. I’ve watched so much this week due to my time on the couch. I watched Birdman, Singin’ in the Rain, Home Alone, loads of The Twilight Zone, Miracle on 34th Street, Little Man Tate, Elf on the Shelf, episode after episode of Seinfeld and Roseanne, and I’ve got a lot recorded to watch today.
Let’s not forget tonight’s mid-season finale of The Walking Dead!!
I honestly haven’t a clue. We have tons of leftovers so maybe it will be a leftover night.
I am grateful that the pain has subsided and that I am feeling more like myself today.
