Happy Cyber Monday. Today’s Special more sarcasm since it’s always my gift to you and the gift that just keeps on giving.
How was your holiday weekend? Did you eat Turkey? We did. We ate all the turkey and I am so over turkey that I don’t care if we have it again for like a hundred years or until Christmas. Same difference, might as well be anyway.
So let’s do a brief recap of the long weekend shall we. I tried really hard to run as much as possible last week and I did manage to bang out around 25 miles but they were half assed and I wouldn’t call them great by any means. About the most impressive thing about the miles I ran last week was when I happened upon a music video being shot in the park.
I tried to get a close up but when I actually stopped and tried to zoom in, they stopped filming and the camera guy actually turned around and glared at me. Don’t worry, I glared right back. I’m not easily intimidated. Lucky for him I had no idea who the artist was or I may have stuck around.
Thanksgiving was low key for MacGyver and me, we had dinner around 3 and invited a good friend of ours over for the day. We floated around the pond for a bit on our floating dock and hung around the house for the entire day until around 6 in the evening and then MacGyver and his friend decided to go do a little shopping and I know you’re going to find this hard to believe but I opted out and stayed home.
I did finally go out shopping with MacGyver for a while on Saturday afternoon. We hit up the home improvement stores and went to the mall for about a hot minute. I just haven’t really been in the mood to shop this year with the kid in Columbus and I haven’t been feeling all that great. I just don’t really have the spirit.
And since I’ve brought it up I suppose this is probably the easiest and most effective way to reach the largest amount of people in my inner most and outer most circles so if you happen to be reading and this doesn’t apply to you then I apologize and skim over this part as quickly as you can.
I’ve been having a hell of a time lately just keeping up. I’ve been in a fog. I’m sure a lot of it has to do with my thyroid which has been really out of whack lately but things that typically would take me 15 minutes to do have recently been taking me an hour and a half or more. It’s daunting. I’m so far behind and I’m frustrated and anxious and depressed. I’m forgetting things. I’m angry. I’m snapping at people and I’m not very pleasant to be around. I’m not myself at all. My medication isn’t working and I’m sure my levels are off and need to be adjusted and my doctor is no longer with the practice so I am looking for a new one.
All that being said, it’s also my fault too because even though I’ve been very careful to listen to the GI doctor and eat gluten free I’ve also been eating all the starches and all the sugars on the planet. All of them.
For those of you to whom it might be important, if you’ve recently emailed, called, written, left a voice mail, sent smoke signals, and you haven’t actually gotten a reply, I’m sorry. It’s not intentional. I promise. I’m working on it. I’ll get to it. I’m working it out. I’ll be back to my old self soon.
Anybody else out there with thyroid issues?
