It's been so long since I've posted!
Since then I've changed my medications and I feel much better. I'm even starting to travel more, something that I was unable to do this time last year!
My sister has tried taking me on daily trips so we can get out and see how much I can do. We've done a little shopping, eaten lunch at our favorite eatery, and even just driven. So far, so good. Haven't gotten sick once!
I went a little insane at our dollar store when I found they had a stash of Revlon, Maybelline, Milani, and Essie products. Usually things like that are an upwards of $5, but since it's the Dollar Tree everything is only a dollar. I think I spent an upwards of $50 on just beauty products that would have cost me almost $200 had I gotten them at a regular drug store. Insane, right?
I also got a fake septum ring to wear around, to test the idea of it.
I love how it looks! I tried to surprise my mom with it, telling her that my sister and I went to the piercing parlor instead of going shopping, and rather than being surprised she just told me it looked nice. Prank fail!
If you're in the US, how was your Thanksgiving?
I made my very first baked mac and cheese yesterday, and it was such a hit that my boyfriend's sister asked to keep the rest if she brought back my pan.
This is the only picture that my boyfriend and I took together. His sister manned the camera. If you're interested, you can find the rest of our pictures on facebook.
I ended up meeting a few animals yesterday at my boyfriend's cousin's house - it's like a damn zoo. I met some goats and a pig or two, but I was terrified of the turkey. It's huge and roams free!
He also had a little cage of guinea hens. They were so small and adorable!
Today has been incredibly rainy, and I've been recovering while watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. With chronic illness, even the littlest trips and events can tire you out. Yesterday was a pretty big event, starting with me in the kitchen from 8AM until noon, then an entire afternoon running around out in my boyfriend's dad's neighborhood eating and enjoying spending time with family.
My sister and her kids came over last night. The night ended up being so long, full of food and good times.
Tomorrow my boyfriend is off from work, so we are going to lounge around. My birthday is on Sunday and he works, so Saturday is our day to celebrate together ^^
I'm slowly but surely recovering. Hopefully I'll be back to my normal self, soon.
