Well, I don't know what the deal was, why I was so wired but yesterday was like a bi-polar manic. I was totally off the charts all day, starting from 6 o'clock in the morning when I woke up until I fianlly collapsed in a heap at 9 o'clock last night. And as I totally expected, I woke up this morning with a migraine and now I feel like I was drug through the hedge backwards.
But it was interesting. I went to lunch and shopping (wildly shopping, not just shopping shopping.) And that was after singing all morning, breezing into the hairdresser's, getting my haircut, jabbering endlessly about my trip to Florida and making the rounds in Target (but not buying anything in record time.
I had lunch at Cracker Barrel with CrazyFriend. She bought lunch which was nice and I was still wired. I don't know if my coffee had extra caffiene in it (I only had my regular two cups) but I was WIRED> We went to Penney's. I wanted a pair of new brown dress trousers (my linen ones I had for the summer finally died). I found a pair but I couldn't bring myself to put them on my charge card so CrazyFriend bought them for me for my birthday which is on Monday. That was fine with me. Birthday present seems like a valid reason and I did want new brown dress trousers.
After Penney's, we went to the drug store (like I needed drugs....) and I got a prescription filled. while we were waiting for the script, we stopped at the Goodwill Store. I bought a Swedish army jacket (I kid you not) which I love and two books, one for CrazyFriend and one for anther friend who I am having brunch with this morning. (Oh I did give CrazyFriend a really nice cookbook and a box of tea so that balanced out the trousers...) I love my Swedish army jacket.
We went to Wally World where I somehow managed to buy $33 worth of stuff (I cannot figure It where that $33 worth of stuff is....) AND I bought a little Mr. Coffee coffee maker for another friend who has been complaining that I got him started back on coffee when he stayed with us out here for a couple of days last summer when he had knee surgery. It's a very cute little coffee maker, just enough for one or two cups. He's a single guy who lives alone and I think it will be perfect for him. I also bought a bunch of other stuff ($33 worth) but don't ask me where or what it was....)
And after Wally world, we went back to Target. I wanted to get a DVD of Little Miss Sunshine to send to cousin Suzie but I couldn't find one. But I did get a pair of Halloween socks with skulls on them and some shoe laces with pink stars on them. I like those too.
We were in the jeep and is was cool and breezy and a gorgeous day. I was still wired when I picked up Cookie from day care. I don't know what the deal was. It was a crazy, crazy day for me. I KNEW I would be crashing and waking up with a migraine this morning and I was right. I feel like crap right now. I took an Imitrex this morning at 5 a.m. and I had some toast and coffee.
Hopefully, today will be a quieter day. At least not a frantic, manic roller coaster like yesterday was. Damn. It was almost scary. But I think I'm okay now;..This morning I am supposed to have brunch with my friend who also broke her ankle. She went to the Blue Ridge Parkway the same time I went to Florida but her trip got rained out. Bummer. They came home early. Oh well.
Okay.....got to get everyone fed and get ready to go.
I HOPE I am not a raving lunatic today.
(I haven't been singing at the top of my lungs at 6 a.m. so maybe I'll be okay...)
AND...I have decided that this is the year I am going to buy a Missy Good hat.
Finally. After years and years of thinking about it.....
This year I am committed to buying a Missy Good hat.
