CollyMP's Journal, 02 July 2013

Oh boy, really feeling like crap today! Aunt Flo is here and is being a right cow, really, and I think the spouse has graciously shared his cold.

Forgot my pills last night so didn't weigh this morning. Gonna be drinking LOTS of water today and pushing through getting some housework done so that the place looks decent for company on the 4th.

Have distributed some glow sticks to the new neighbors across the street for the girls that I believe are their grandchildren, but are there almost daily. Our street is very near the park where the local fireworks display is set up, and we get a lot of traffic from that, and people are usually not awfully careful about watching out for kids as they're trying to figure out where they are, which way they should turn, and honking impatiently at the people in front of them that don't know either. I like to light up the kidlets so people will see them coming if they head for the street. I still need to take some next door as well for their grand kids. I get them at the dollar store so it's really not a big bite out of my cash, and it's fun to see the kids all excited about them (not to mention the cost of them at the event itself is cuh-ray-zee)

The new neighbor didn't quite know what to think though. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?

Eating is going okay, still probably not eating enough veg but I've spent the last two weeks just feeling really out of it. Probably the onset of the monthly and the cold as well. This sucks.

Have friends coming for the 4th, we were going out to eat but found the restaurant will be closed that day. So we're doing the classic Suburban Cookout-burgers, dogs, baked beans, macaroni salad, potato salad, chips, pop...all that jazz.

Sorry, this is kind of rambling, I am still feeling very disconnected and spacey, not sure what the problem is. Gonna go guzzle some ice water now, see if I don't perk up a bit.

awww poor girl. I hope TOM leaves you alone soon. Tell Hubby that he needs to STOP sharing his germs. I really am worried about your spacey and disconnected issues.. Doctor visit maybe?

Sweetie I would but they never find anything wrong-took 'em years to admit that I wasn't joking when I said my joints hurt all the time. Probably just preparing to have another round of daily vertigo-nasty to deal with but really helpful for weight loss because you're too nauseous to eat! LOL!

Hope you feel better honey. Cookout sounds like fun but only if you feel better. There are so many things that 'spacey'feeling could be. You said you missed some meds yesterday? It could be hypoglycemia? It could be 'carb flu' where you need some salt or some potassium? We are women, goodness knows it could be anything and it is so hard to find a doc that gives a crap! Look after yourself 'cause no one else will :)

The Glow Stick Mafia will be breaking your knees for cutting into their sales :-) Nice gesture you - wish there were more people like you in the world.

Yep, missed my meds, it's allergy season, I've got a cold coming on, I've got periods from hell again after years of not having to deal with ''s just a grab bag. I don't feel bad enough to make an appointment and wait for six weeks to be seen, certainly don't feel bad enough for the ER-just really flaky and spaced out. You're right though-finding a doc that gives a crap is a long and difficult road. My hubby is retired military so we're seen on base, so even when you do find one, he or she will be gone in a couple of years anyway, and I can't afford to go off base.

LOL-Glow Stick Mafia! They don't scare me, I can hide, they can't! LOL! I felt bad last year because the kids next door didn't have any to play with and the kids at my house were having a blast with theirs (two teenagers and a prenager, mind you-even the adults were playing with 'em) so this year I bought a boatload. Also, last year, we had several near-misses with people walking into the neighborhood to get back to their cars and kids stepping out into the street and nearly getting run over. I want to prevent that if I can.

Excellent plan. Everyone needs to be lighted ~ and those blinky blink sneakers aren't enough.
