A quiet Christmas at home!

Saturday, December 24, 2011

Well, it's Christmas Eve today and I was supposed to go to Church for the Christmas Eve service followed by the dinner afterwards. I was looking forward to this for weeks. But somehow, God or fate or whatever you want to call it, had other plans.

I went to brunch with a friend on Thurday, all I had was some nachos and a quarter rack of BBQ ribs. Then I came home and had some frozen pizza which I toasted in the oven for 45 minutes, a small bowl of rice and a few pieces of savory pumpkin cake, it may not seem like much but I was violently ill afterwards, in the night, I threw up 3 times, I think I must have emptied my stomach of everything I ate!

That was not the end. After I threw up, I had chills. It was even worse the next day (Friday). I shivered the whole of the 4 hours on dialysis on Friday. I felt so bad I couldn't even finish the 4 hour treatment and ended 30 minutes early.

Fortunately for me, after a few phone calls, I managed to sell my Christmas Eve dinner ticket to a Christian woman with a Buddhist husband. The ticket that I sold was meant for this man, I really hope that he gets saved, then that will make my sacrifice more meaningful.

Well, I started on a course of antibiotics last night. The doctor just happened to be in the dialysis center on Friday. I feel better today but I still have not enough appetite for the Christmas dinner. I so afraid that if I eat too much, I might throw up again.

It's like I wasn't meant to go. It was like preordained by God. I mean, the doctor only comes to the center once a month, and he just happened to be there on Friday. And my Dad, who's a pharmacist, just happened to have exactly 5 days worth of doses of the prescribed antibiotics, as prescribed by the doctor. I didn't even have to go and buy the meds!

Weird huh? Maybe God really wants to save that man, (the husband of that lady). Who knows?

My day at the mall!

Thursday, December 22, 2011

A friend of mine treated me to brunch today, and it was a sodium fest! I'm still thirsty now, and the bad news is, I think I overloaded in fluids because of the sodium!

We had cheesy nachos and half a rack of BBQ Ribs. We shared both. I also had 2.5 slices of frozen pizza for dinner. I don't feel good right now, like I'm bursting with sodium and fluids.........

I hate to think what will happen tomorrow at the dialysis center...........

Then, there's the Christmas Eve dinner, hopefully, I'll be ok once the festive season is over........


Printer Woes!

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

I think my printer head, which is located on the printer catridge itself is clogged! I was refilling the black on the other day when with a slip of my hand, I spilled black ink all over the catridge. I think I just need to clean the head with a proper printer head cleaning liquid that I'll have to purchase and my printer will work again!

I wanted to go today to buy it but I'm afraid I don't have the courage to compete in the mall with last-minute Christmas shoppers! Maybe after Christmas!

Today must be my lucky day! :)

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

I went to my hairdresser to trim my fringe, it was getting over long and poking my eyes, causing me to rub them unnecessarily coz it itches. He told me earlier the fee for fringe trimming was RM10. I've already gone to him twice for overall trimming, which cost me RM65 per trim.

He's a little pricey but the cut is good. I've decided to just let my hair grow for at least six months before the next trim.

Anyway, back to today, he trimmed my fringe nicely, but when I went to pay him, he said it was free! That's why I said today is my lucky day! I bought myself some coconut jelly and some snacks with the money I saved. I also bought a chicken and mushroom bun. I had RM3 left over and I put it in my dialysis centre purse in case I need to pay for my own lunch next time.

I feel so good! My hairdresser is sooo kind!

One of those days again.....

Sunday, December 18, 2011

I find it really hard to explain what I mean by that, so I'll just give it my best shot......

I felt blue, just plain blue, and nothing I did would chase it away, it was like this black cloud hanging over my heart. I took my simplest cross-stitch project (a little bookmark for someone's birthday) and started stitching away at the coffee table while my Dad watched "The Quantum of Solace" (I thought I'd have company and feels so alone by doing it downstairs) but still, the blue feeling persisted.

I'm glad to say that I don't feel blue right now but I felt it this afternoon. I felt terrible. Any suggestions how to chase the blues away?
