Year Two, Day 128: "LOVEYOUBYE!"

I had a incredible workout with my friend of the male persuasion today. Two days in a row!

I guess I will just call said male "R" from now on.

R led me through an intense workout. He really knows his stuff. I think I will be in a world of hurt tomorrow. But it will be a happy world!

He had me do some serious weight lifting. With free weights. He said he was quite impressed with my strength. So was I, for that matter! Maybe I was just showing off, but I did 120 lb. toe raises, dude!

Afterwards we had lunch. He had packed really yummy homemade ham sandwiches.

And to think just a week ago, I questioned this man's intentions.

He had the good manners not to bring up my terrible, horrifying faux paus from yesterday. Thank God!

So, I always say "Love you bye!" to my kids when we part, or hang up the phone.

It comes out like one word: "LOVEYOUBYE!"

I bet you can guess where this is going! My face is already reddening as I recall...

So, yesterday R called me to say hi. I was waiting for a bus. Just as we started talk, my bus pulled up.I was trying to board and tell R at the same time that I needed to hang up.

But in my distracted stated, I just blurted out, "LOVEYOUBYE!" Then I hung up the phone!

 And then just sat there. Staring in horror.

Of course, then I made matters worse by texting him, "OOPS!"

And then,  saying out loud to no one in particular, "I cannot believe I just said,"LOVEYOUBYE" to this man I hardly know!"

But R is a true gentleman. Not a word was spoken of this unfortunate event. Or perhaps he did not even hear me?

On that note...

Happy Wednesday!

LOVEYOUBYE!

Year Four, Day 31: Sleep Business

I did it! I survived my sleep study.
It was quite intense. I think my expectations were a bit skewed. I was envisioning more like a mini retreat.  
It was all business. Sleep business.
And the minute the lights went out and the door shut behind the sleep technician as she whispered, "good night", I went into full panic mode.
Luckily I was really tired.  She had asked if I wanted to watch a bit of television before I fell asleep. But I declined. I knew to take advantage of the heavy lidded, dull brained feeling I had when I was really sleepy. Television might wake up my brain.
As she was attaching my electrodes, I watched a show on Animal Planet called "Lone Star Law", about Texas game wardens. I was hooked!  It was fascinating. I rarely watch tv, and we don't have cable at home, thankfully.  But this show drew me in. In retrospect, I should have continued to watch it until I fell asleep.
Something about being hooked up, tucked in, lights off, door closing, fel…

Year Four, Day 41: The ER

This morning about 4 a.m. I woke up with severe stabbing pains in my jaw.  My whole head, face and neck felt like someone had it in a vice. And was turning the lever.

I had already taken a dose of Thera-Flu before bed. Since Wednesday morning is my time with Gracie, I wanted to make sure I was well rested.  I didn't want to be groggy on Gracie duty.
But with the pain I was experiencing, I was questioning how effective I would be at all. 
I was wide awake, holding my jaw as everything throbbed.  I made a decision to take another dose of Thera-Flu.  The package said I could take one dose every 4 hours.  
So I boiled some water and sat hunched over the kitchen table.  I poured the hot water over the powder. As I waited for it to cool, I put my face close to the cup. The hot steam gave my poor face a bit of relief. 
I was wondering if I had a sinus infection. My throat was sore and raw.  I was congested. Had a bit of a cough. The jaw pain was troubling. Last week when my allergies we…

Year Three, Day 308, 309 and 310: I'm Back...

...from the brink of death.

Most dramatic am I.  But I feel like I went to hell and back this weekend.

One mistake was to take over the counter medication (Tylenol, Thera-Flu and Ibuprofen) and drink massive caffeine in order to make it through teaching classes on Friday.

I felt really good until early evening. Then it felt like my head was going to explode. My cough returned with a vengeance, dragging along massive sneezing and nose dripping.

Then like a big dummy I downed another mug of Thera-Flu before bed. I didn't even consider cancelling Saturday breakfast with my mom. And definitely could not afford to cancel anymore piano lessons.

Oy, I felt miserable Saturday morning. But I managed to get up and stagger down the road to the bus stop just in time. I was halfway to our regular restaurant before I remembered it was St. Patrick's Day. I looked down at my outfit. Not a speck of my favorite color green. So, before I joined my mom, I stopped at Rite Aid in search of a little…
