Nothing crazy happened this weekend, other than that I wasn’t feeling well. Somehow, though, I still managed to accomplish what felt like a lot. I did not, however, accomplish any blog posts, so here’s the update on the weekend.
Friday: After work, I dropped Jon off at gaming, went to the gym for another treadmill session, then went to Forsh’s for some dinner, wine, and The Sound of Music. I love the original movie, so I was interested in seeing the remake with Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer. Before I saw it, I read mixed reviews. After I saw it, everything I read talked about how horrible it was. It wasn’t better than the original, for sure, but I actually liked it. Underwood is cute and Moyer was…well, it was fun comparing Captain Von Trapp to Bill Compton. It was also fun to just goof on it with Forsh. I picked up Jon when it got late. He took second in the FNM draft, so it turned out to be a good night all around.
Saturday: I slept in on Saturday, which I thought would be good for some extra rest, but I was feeling rough when I woke up, both physically and emotionally. It wasn’t my normal depression. I wanted to go do something but I didn’t want to deal with the cold, so I stayed in and figured that was best to try to make myself feel physically better…that and a few cold pills. I started feeling restless a little later on, so I channeled my energy into finishing a few knitting projects I’d been working on and watching American Horror Story: Asylum, which finally came on Netflix. Later in the evening, I did venture out for a short walk with Jon to the corner store. It was chilly, but I found my headband and gloves, so it was bearable. The walk itself felt good. I hate being cooped up all day. Before the day ended at around two in the morning, I watched all of Asylum.
Sunday: I woke up feeling better, so I thought I was out of the woods. Even though I got to bed late on Saturday, I set an early alarm so I could get up and finish an editing project. We ordered lunch, and I watched some Christmas shows to get the answers I needed for the mystery geocache series. Even though it was cold and snowy, I didn’t want to be cooped up again, and since we had to go out for gaming anyway, I suggested we brave the cold and snow and go pick up some geocaches. The roads weren’t horrible, though there were a few snags in our plan. First, some of our coordinates were wrong due to sticky keyboard fingers and typos, so our first two caches took us to private land and someone’s driveway…hence, we knew we’d done something wrong. We also ended up on a really horrible back road and almost dumped ourselves into a creek. My mad driving skills got us through it, but that was a pretty intense trip. We managed to grab four of the mystery caches before heading over for our Pathfinder game. It was around that time that I started feeling sick again, worse than Saturday. I couldn’t focus on anything, I had a weird headache, and I kept running hot and cold. I also thought I was going to fall asleep a few times because I felt so exhausted.
Once the game was over, I managed to perk up enough to do some grocery shopping, but I was sore and tired and really glad to get home. Jon made me some chicken noodle soup and I picked up some OJ at the store. I’ll be heading to bed shortly after this post to try to get some sleep, and hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow. I go through this every other month or so, so I’m going to rely on my immune system to kick into high gear and not let me get super sick before Christmas.
Here’s to some cold meds and rest and a good upcoming work week.
