yay!! thanksgiving has come and gone....and i can say it certainly had it's ups and downs.... the day began with a sore left foot....that is rare for me....so it put me in one of those "i don't wanna" moods....but with the bossiness of my friend Jenn...i got my arse outta bed and made it to the turkey trot on time!! Granted....because of my mood...i skipped breakfast...and didn't have time to eat before hand (if i eat any sooner than an hour before a jog or race i have SEVERE cramps) so...off i trot...and yes...i jogged most of it :) and with very little pain in my foot at the time!! The turkey trot is a 5k race in memory of Missy White so suffered systic fibrosis, she passed away about 12 years ago...and hence the begining of a wonderful town tradition in her honor! My 5k time? 41:30....not the 35 mins i'd been hoping for but heck...i hadn't trained in weeks!! what can one expect....this is where my lack of consistancy is very evident!!!
after the Trot and visiting with friends i headed home to start the meal preperations!!! Turkey in...house clean, potatoes peeled, pies being made...the whole shebang!! I just LOVE the holidays!! around 2ish i started to develop a small headache (rare occasion for me)....company comes over we enjoy our meal and i learned how to make gravey!! Company leaves and the headache has gotten worse.....It's time to pick up my nephew!! it was his birthday and he was comming black friday shopping with us this year!!! By the time I got home from getting him i had an extremely bad migrain....it seems it is very rare for me to get headaches at all..but when i do...they are most often migrains not just headaches....this was the worst one ever...it was so bad that it actually made me puke! that was not pleasant...and THAT was not the end of it...i couldn't believe it!!! Erik gave me something strong to take...and that helped eventually......though i feel better today it kind of lingers depending on what i'm doing ( perhaps i should check my b/p tonight) Despite that whole bunch of yuckiness we got up at 2am...and thankfully i was feeling better...headed out the door and faced walmart at 3am....scored a 50 inch tv to replace our broken tv!!! it will be so nice to have a tv in the living room again!!
That leads me to the here and now.....hubby and nephew went out for a bit, i just cleaned half of his truck out....and am just relaxing!! we are hopefully setting up the tv tonight when they get back and i must venture off to go get a bookshelf i scored for free from a friend! Psyched!!
phew....that was a whole lot for one little holiday.....and i didn't even get to the thankful part of it all!! I'm so thankful for all of my friends and family, for all of the chances i've taken and oppertunities i've been given....I'm thankful for innocent children, and for the hope they give me that some day the world just may be a better place. I'm thankful for the people who have always supported me....and the ones who said i couldn't do it...for they are the reason i don't give up! I have to say this past year i've experienced more "new" things than i have in past years.....and i don't regret a single one of them, for i have learned something from every new person i've met, ever new task i've been given, and every new adventure i've been a part of....i hope that is not something that is soon to change!
