I wish I could say this weekend helped get rid of my “funk”, but unfortunately it isn’t the case. I keep trying to push it aside but it’s not going anywhere. I think I know what’s causing it (okay, I lie… I totally do) but I just don’t want to talk about it right now. It didn’t help I dressed up Elmo in his Halloween costume and only got 3 groups of trick-or-treat-ers. Yeah, a whoooooole 3 groups. Elmo kept it original this year and decided to be himself.
Oh! And to top it all off… My brother’s neighbor decided to bring his girlfriend’s son a goodie bag which was really nice and sweet. What isn’t so sweet is her little scotty dog attacking Elmo. I have never witnessed a dog be so sweet than show it’s teeth in less than five seconds. Absurd. Riddle me this: Why bring your dog if it isn’t friendly with other dogs? The world will never know, I guess.
Friday and Saturday were spent laying around going from Little Miss Grumpy Pants to Little Miss Smarty Pants every hour. If it doesn’t scream, “Bi-polar!” to you, I do not know what will convince you. I did manage to continue my morning walk each morning because I am a firm believer exercise kicks colds. And mine is almost gone. My mom asked how I got rid of mine so quickly and I swear it’s because of exercise… I’ve believed it since high school because I barely ever got sick when I ran all the time.
Although I was not feeling 100% this weekend, it is always nice to see my family.
It was even better because my mom made me a special pot of vegetarian pot pie with whole wheat pasta. An entire batch only has one teaspoon of butter and one egg. I always thought it was bad for you, but it was in my deep eating disorder days. Looking at it now, it’s really not too bad at all!
Seriously, I love her a lot. It meant so much to me for her to do it. And it was stinkin’ delicious.
Now, I’m taking care of Elmo who snagged a piece of ham and some broth when my family was over. He is now spewing his guts from both ends. Poor little guy cannot handle people food.
Catch you later!
