Ill Communication

17 Jul

Ma Bell,  I’m not feeling too hot right now and it hasn’t been too exciting the past few days but will do a little recap of food, drinks and other stuff.

Egg white, turkey, white american cheese and avocado breakfast wrap

Finally got “Heart of The Matter” from the library after three months of waiting!

Yoplait was handing out free yogurt on Thursday and I tried the vanilla. Since I am a fan of the greek yogurt, I was not impressed because it was thin and tart compared to the thicker stuff.

But then got a free Espresso Monster and it was frickin great! I would actually buy it in the store, it reminded me of Starbucks Double Shot. Click here if you would like to get a coupon for BOGO Starbucks Double Shot + Energy Coffee

Sweet Basil Pesto Chicken Sausage with grilled mushrooms, artichokes and spinach over brown rice

Drunk dog

Sober dog

Chocolate Chip Bagel with cream cheese—thanks work for the free breakfast!

Blueberry Juice Infused Craisins

I was off to meet up with some friends for happy hour last night, thank God 1Baby Girl was leading the way. I cannot stand personalized license plates (sorry if you have one–we can still be friends) and had to look at this the whole way but I guess 1Baby Girl was no going to get her drink on. My friends send me texts of random ones they see b/c they know this and when I see one I can’t figure out, it drives me mad.

We were meeting at San Antonio’s, which is a newer restaurant in town with an awesome drink special–$1 Margaritas, $2 Sangrias, $3 Beers. That right there is how you can reel me in! Little did I know, I would soon be calling it San Antoni—noooooo’s.

The Sangria—it was what you would expect a $2 Sangria to be but drinkable. They brought us a big platter of chips and salsa and sadly, the salsa was runny and bland. The service kinda sucked—our waitress was a bit clueless. I waitressed for six years so I have a lot of patience when I go out to eat but I felt like it was her first day or something. One of my friends ordered a mojito and the waitress had to ask how that was spelled. Whatever happened to menu knowledge?? Oi. I made the mistake of getting a margarita after the sangria to see what the $1 hype was all about it. The nice thing is they give you the option of adding a shot of tequila for $1 extra which made it a tad strong but it just did not taste good. And it was weird—after sitting out for awhile it separated into two blocks of ice within the cup. I wish I would have taken a picture because it looked like a margaritas science experiment gone wrong.

Pollo Nachos. Look at all that gooey cheese and jalapenos–yum! These tasted great however when I was a few bites in, something weird happened. I had a wave of nausea come over me, was light-headed, sweating, started seeing spots and couldn’t hear anyone talking to me but had an intense ringing noise in my head. The girls at the table looked at me because I did a 180 in mood and they were talking to me and I just couldn’t hear them. I grabbed my water and chugged it and I’ve fainted, had strep, mono, you name it but had never felt like this before. I wanted to go to the bathroom to get away from all the noise but feared if I got up, I would faint. One of the girls gave me some tums and my stomach settled down a bit so that was one less thing to worry about. Eventually it went away and I could hear and see normal again but then it came back. They were suggesting perhaps an anxiety attack which I’ve never had and don’t know why I would have since I was in the company of food, drinks and friends which are some of my favorite things. Then one of them mentioned a migraine. Now I’ve had headaches before and I thought I’ve had migraines but apparently not. I got home ok and felt like crap the rest of the night. I laid on the couch with Lincoln in the dark and watched tv at a very low volume. I couldn’t fall asleep because my head was pounding and my stomach was cramping.  I just felt horrible and felt bad that I was being a Debbie Downer of sorts and ruining the evening for everyone (and only finishing a 1.3 of the nachos, I think that is a first for me)

 I woke up early this morning still feeling off but I was ok to get up and move around. I took Lincoln out and while he was dropping the kids off in the grass, he started scooting on the grass so doo-doo all over his butt. Beautiful. This is exactly what I want to deal with at 6A after a horrible night so I had to take him in the yard and hose his booty off and make sure it was all gone. This right here? Is how much I love this little dog (and my new rugs)

I was starving afterwards and made an egg white, white american cheese and tomato sandwich on a honey wheat sandwich thin

I wasn’t feeling the sandwich at first but then I saw this cheese oozing out and knew it was meant to be

I always feel like, somebody’s watching me

That being said, I still don’t feel well. My stomach hurts, my head is aching a bit and I am just feeling off. I hate not feeling well when it is beautiful out so I am hoping the day takes a turn for the worse and it gets cloud and rains again. Off to curl in a fetal position with Lincoln! Hope everyone’s weekend is off to a better start!

    I’m sorry about the little episode! Ugh… they do seem to pop up at the most inappropriate times, right?

    And I think we’re gonna have to start a blogger book club that is all things Emily Griffen… she seems to be quite popular!

    It really does sound like an anxiety attack of sorts. Maybe you were relaxed and with safe nice friends so you were able to let it out.
