Happy (Belated) Thanksgiving

Happy (Belated) Thanksgiving

I would like to wish everyone a very Happy (belated) Thanksgiving! I hope you all had a great day! I meant to blog yesterday, but I spent the entire day eating and binge-watching Netflix with my boyfriend. Thanksgiving turned out great for Mike and I. I was a little worried about how my mood would be, but yesterday was a happy day! Woohoo for me! Lol. Mike cooked a big meal for us, and it tasted excellent. It is rare that we spend the entire day together, and I loved every minute of it.

We watched this movie called Truth or Dare, which surprisingly turned out to be a pretty good movie. Then, we binged watched the show Weeds. I want to try to get our Christmas tree set up this weekend. I wanted to do it yesterday but we were both so tired for the rest of the day after we ate dinner and dessert. I ate so much yesterday, and now I just ate the last of the pumpkin pie too! I have no idea where I put all this food!

I started my new med, generic Tegretol, Wednesday night. It knocked me out for 12 hours! I was supposed to take it again Thanksgiving morning (Thursday) but I didn’t want to sleep all day, so I skipped my morning dose and took it again last night. I knocked out for 13 hours. I took my first time morning dose today, and I have been feeling drowsy all day. It’s almost only 6:30 at night and I am ready for bed, or a nice nap at least. 

 Thanks for reading! Until next time…

  1. Hey sweetie, sorry I haven’t emailed back yet. I will! I’m so glad you and Mike had a great Thanksgiving!
    I used to watch “Weeds” and I really loved it! I haven’t seen “Truth or Dare” – is that the Madonna movie?

    The Tegretol sounds superpowerful – wow. I hope hope hope it helps you!!!!!!!! I’m praying for that to happen tonight. You totally deserve a break! Keep us posted and let us know the latest book news – woo hoo! ❤️And hope you got your tree set up or that you get it up soon. Trees are so beautful to have and we want to get one this year, too.

    • Hey hun, it’s okay no worries. Thank you so much! Your encouragement is very much appreciated! I love “Weeds!” I was so sad when it ended. “Truth or Dare” is a newer horror movie. Kind of reminded me of “Would You Rather” if you have seen that one.

      The tegretol seems really powerful! I am feeling almost baseline because of the drowsiness it gives me. It’s about 7 am and I have to take my morning dose in about 2 hours. We didn’t get our tree up yet… hopefully soon! When I do, I am going to post a pic or at least email you! 😍
