Show And Tell

This weather is killing me mood-wise. Jordan woke me up this morning just after six and when I looked out the window at all the snow that fell overnight I immediately felt so blue. I didn't even want to think about going outside and wished that the schools would be closed. I think it was only a couple of inches but still...

In the past I have experienced that SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) aka winter blues/winter depression, but I've had a wonderful reprieve the last couple of years. I don't think I will be so lucky this year. I try to combat it by keeping the blinds open to let as much light in as possible and on overcast days I keep the lights on. Still... it sucks. I don't enjoy the winter much at all.

I did make it to my mom's today after my mini-meltdown and was so pleased to see that she was experiencing very little back pain at all today and was able to move around rather easily. I was so thankful. She felt so good she was all set to shovel the driveway!

!!!

She didn't, in case you were wondering!

Lately I have been wanting to eat spaghetti but no one else eats it in my house. Today I could hold off no longer and so I cooked some. What a letdown. I didn't realize I was out of Parmesan cheese and it wasn't nearly as good as I imagined it was going to be. Very disappointing. So disappointing in fact, that at this very moment I never want to eat it again.

So there.

Here's Jules, earning her keep. ;-)



Cindy picked me up just after 7 and we met up with Jen at our usual hangout - Tim's. Our usual table was taken (grr) and so we had to wait for the couple sitting there to leave. If it's the three of us, we always sit at one particular table. If it's just Cindy and me, then we sit at a different particular table. It is my OCD people..things must always be the same. Always.

Tonight I am going to show you these dear friends of mine.

Here is Cindy...



And here is Jen...



I love these ladies so, so much. I just love being with them.

There was a couple at the next table making out which bothered Cindy immensely. I couldn't see them but Cindy was rather grossed out. I am not one for PDAs (Public Displays of Affection) so I didn't make it a point to look at them. Holding hands or a hug is fine, but if someone shouts "get a room!" you can be certain that you are crossing the lines of what is acceptable in public.

Lately I have been experiencing pain underneath my right arm, on my side. Anytime I moved I felt this sharp pain. Of course, I was certain it would turn out to be something horrible like a tumour or something so I have been feeling quite anxious about it. But I discovered today that I do not have a tumour... I merely require a new bra because the wire is sticking out of this one, and into my side.

Oops.

Jen was shamelessly laughing at me tonight. I was wearing my stretchy pants that I would wear to the gym and they are a little....short. Well, she couldn't stop laughing at my "floods".

Darn you, Jen! Never again will I feel bad for making fun of your "baby hands"!

Seriously, friends... she has little baby-looking hands. I love them.

I had a terrific blonde moment tonight, just as we were leaving Tim's. I saw something painted on the ground just in front of the store, and I stopped to look at it and asked the girls "What the heck is POTS?" and then I walked around and realized it said "STOP".

Sigh. I know. And I admitted it here, to all of you.

Love me anyway, people. Love me anyway.

Oh I am tired. Tomorrow is Coffee Hour. I hope I have the energy for it. I'm looking forward to seeing my other friend Jen. She is due in just a few days and I can't wait. I have become that annoying friend that constantly asks "anything? how about now?" I'm just so excited for her.

Still reading The Shack and I'm enjoying it. It has such great imagery in it and I've had tears more than once.

Enough babbling for one night... See you next time.

  2. LOL at POTS! You are so cute!

    I'm so glad to hear your mom felt great yesterday, and that she DIDN'T shovel the driveway.

    See you soon!

    Well I for one have to say that "SAD" or not, I loved the victories I saw you have yesterday, helping your mom, the kids, and definitely me. I think you're the best and I'm very proud of you.
    In the meanwhile for the rest of the winter, I prescript lots of tea, cozy nights, Christmas music, with occasional bouts of silliness.
    Don't argue with your doctor!
