For the first time in almost six weeks, I didn’t walk today. It feels like I’ve broken the law.
I woke up with a migraine but really, I need to go back to last night… because… here’s what happened. I was watching a YouTube of the backlot of Warner Bros Studios. I loved watching one about the backlot of Universal and wanted to see the Friends set and whatever else was filmed there. When I watched the Universal tour, it was professionally filmed. This one was NOT. I get motion sickness ***really*** easily. Especially when I’m intently concentrating.
The last time this happened, I was watching a tsunami video and also, my dad was dying at just about that moment, but I didn’t know it yet. I suddenly felt very ill and blamed the video, though in truth I was kinda confused because I’ve watched dozens of videos about tidal waves without affect. Point is, I’ve wondered ever since if it was Dad, sending a message. But I digress.
Last night, it happened again, though I felt very strongly that I knew what it was… that darned video. Still, I have some concerns with my children right now and Mom is always on my mind but she seems, for the most part, fit as a fiddle. I’ll tell you what! Her brain is completely on-point. Her joints maybe haven’t gotten the message but she manages pretty-darned well. And again, I digress.
So, I turned off the video that I (quite honestly) wasn’t enjoying much anyway. I didn’t recognize any of the shows they mentioned and some guy was taking the video from the touring tram so the sound was in-and-out and the tram was up-and-down… *ugh*… and as goes the road, so went my stomach.
When I woke up this morning, I still felt like the dog’s dinner. Or a bag of shit. Or both.
Hubby had a couple of early appointments that I was to take him to because of the poor location of one – along with no parking. I took one of my big-gun meds. Haven’t had to do that for weeks. Also, no coffee for us because he was getting fasting blood work. We would pick it up on the way home.
The headache lessened up in a half hour or so but I still felt off. The weather was overcast and gloomy and so was I.
But, we went about our business and ended up at Starbucks because I still had some money on my card there. Mistake. I wasn’t in my right mind. I don’t even want to tell you what I ordered because it was all wrong, wrong, wrong. There was caramel involved. Say no more, right?
We came home and I went up to bed. When I woke up, I felt utterly unrefreshed. And my stomach is STILL churning, hours later.
Yeah. Today’s a wash.
But I feel guilty. Not like a life-sentence kinda guilty, just a ticket kinda guilty. I’m paying for it… and can hopefully put it behind me.
I’ll be back to my active self tomorrow. I have some of my own appointments, one with a friend who makes soap. I’ve talked about her before. I always enjoy her company.
Did I tell you I also cleaned my cupboards yesterday, including a cursory clean of the junk drawer? Things are shaping up… and that counts almost as much as steps do. Right? No? LOL
Still, I found lids to Tupperware I no longer have! And got rid of things – oh boy, yes, another purge! – I no longer use, including an electric sandwich maker that we bought five years ago and used LITERALLY once. I love how much better the kitchen feels!
Yay, me! <<<< Knock off the forced self-accolades, Sher.
No, screw you, voice in my head.
See, I’ll be okay. Everything is perfectly normal here.
PS: The featured photo is actually a church building but I thought it looked kinda legal-y. So sue me. Hahahaha. Get it?
