I am sure glad it’s Thursday.. mostly because yesterday sucked… and today is going to be a fun day. We can talk more on that later. I realized that while I’ve been posting a little bit more regularly – they’ve been some general posts and I haven’t really discussed much of what is going on in my life (besides the fact that school is almost over)..
So – let’s talk about my life.. lately.
Yesterday, I had to take a sick day (which I REALLY didn’t want to do because time is a tickin and I want to hang out with my cool kiddos and teach them lots of new and exciting things in the short time we have left). I’ve been feeling terrible lately. Exhausted – lacking energy.. just not myself. Since Saturday, I’ve been feeling lightheaded and dizzy fairly regularly. It got pretty bad on Tuesday – and I had to leave work early. I was at first told I was dehydrated – which really surprised me because I pride myself on my liquid intake.
Then, yesterday – when I knew I couldn’t stand and teach.. or drive to work .. I went to Urgent Care and was told I am currently having symptoms of Vertigo. The doctor could tell there was a problem with my inner ear by the way my eyes were twitching when I followed her finger. Who woulda thunk it. I’ve been drinking lots of fluids and planted my butt on the couch for almost the entire day yesterday. While I am feeling better, Justin is driving me to work this morning (but for a totally different reason..it just happens to work out!)
Justin is dropping me off today – because I am going to the Yankee Game tonight with about 30 of my coworkers! We hare having a surprise retirement party for one of our staff members who is a die hard Yankee fan! I am super excited for the evening! With Justin dropping me off, I can just hop on the train at the stadium – and we will pick me up at the train station in our town tonight!
In other areas of life:
My workouts have kind of sucked lately…lacking intensity and what not. It is likely because I have been exhausted. So the extra rest I am taking will likely help!
Colby got his summer hair cut. I am not a huge fan of his short locks, but I will get over it. He looks much more brown.. and less black with short hair… not to mention 10 times smaller!
The new piece of furniture Justin and I ordered from Bob’s arrived! It looks awesome in our eat in – and matches the rest of our kitchen set perfectly! I am really excited to have the extra storage space! On top – is a crystal bowl I received from on one of my aunts at my bridal shower.
“It is a tradition in Ireland to get a newly engaged or wed couple a crystal bowl symbolizing happiness, health, and wealth. Legend has it that as long as the bowl is safe and secure, the family will be blessed with the laughter of children, the health of a lion, and coins in their purses.”
Speaking of bridal showers.. and weddings.. the big day is rapidly approaching!
63 days away to be exact! Agh! Our invites have been sent out – and we’ve been getting a good deal of responses already! My mom and dad have a system set up at their house – but I call every night and ask for the run down! We are both filling in our spreadsheets with RSVPs and meal choices. Although my parents could have easily done this themselves, I couldn’t relinquish complete control (HELLO CONTROL FREAK).. and have to document the same information myself.
Things are starting to pick up – as far as tasks go. These will be a part of our favors:
And these will be a part of my wardrobe on our honeymoon!
I couldn’t resist the purchasing two new suits when I got the Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual catalog in the mail. While these suits are a little expensive – they last for a long time. I still have (and wear) a Vicky’s suit that I purchased when I was a junior in HIGH SCHOOL. Yep.. that would be in 2003. That is 8 years. Damn. Maybe it is time to retire that suit!
So – that is my life lately…
What is going on with your life.. lately?
Where do you buy your swim suits?
