Wow. I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted. My mom has been bugging me to post an update, but it has been a massive week for me in terms of school work and the only thing I have used my computer for is school work. But, on the plus side of that, I got another test grade back....96%! And my grade back on a huge bugger of an assignment....A+. I didn't even do that good in high school! Or in my first two years of college! So I guess all the hard work is paying off! I just hope with the economy the way it is now that I will be able to get a job when it's all said and done. I hope this isn't all for nothing!
Anyway, back at the subject at hand. Earlier this week I had a mild panic attack....or anxiety attack, whichever you want to call it. I'm not sure what it was. My mom attributes it to withdrawl, but I was already a week and 3 days in when it happened, so I am not sure I can blame it on that. I attribute it to events that occurred over the weekend that have to do with things I am dealing with personally. Needless to say, it was not pleasant and I felt incapacitated for a day or so. I don't know how I got the school work done that I needed to do. But I did. And I survived.
I have another new addiction (beyond watching L&O SVU)....I have been craving water like no other the past week or so. I got myself a big water bottle that I fill with water and stick in the freezer for an hour or so (I do NOT enjoy luke-warm water), and guzzle it down in no time flat. I am definitely getting in my 8 glasses a day...if not more. And oddly enough, I am hardly drinking any soda anymore. Weird. Still drinking a lot of coffee, but when I am thirsty for something cold, I have been reaching for the water instead of the pop.
I am hosting a major dinner tomorrow at my house for my sis's b-day. I have had a turkey in my freezer for a couple of months now that I really need to get rid of and I didn't think she should have to cook for her b-day dinner. So I am making turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, rolls and salad. Her hubby is bringing the cake and his Dad is bringing the soda. Everything else is on me. I've only ever cooked a turkey one time before and I'm nervous to get all of this done by myself tomorrow, but I'm looking forward to it, too. She has been so great to me over the past 10 months or so, so this is my way of showing my appreciation for her. I also special ordered a t-shirt for her with a "super woman" logo on front and on the back it says:
I hope she likes it.
Anyway, all is well. Just thought I should update you all. Two weeks, two days. Hoping my skin looks 5 years younger very soon. :-)
