Busy busy busy.... haha, not really.
So my sister sent me this text today: "YOU DIDN'T BLOG TODAY YET! I'm literally crying because I don't know what's going on in your life!!!!!" I love my sister <3 My response was, "I didn't know I was required to blog every day. I don't know if my life is that interesting..." But she assured me that, yes, I will find SOMETHING to talk about. So here it is. Just for you, lil' sis.
Today I had a fairly busy day, considering that I have been sitting around recently. I was supposed to wake up and go to this knitting thing, but it was optional (duh) and I just couldn't drag myself out of bed. So I slept in a bit longer and woke up at 10 am. I had lunch with my best friend at noon, which was fun. We talked about our planned weekend.
Which reminds me - my 21st birthday is this Sunday! For those of you non-Americans, you can (finally) drink legally at age 21 in the US. My best friend and I are planning to go out on Saturday night so that I can order my first drink at 12:01 AM on my birthday. Should be fun! Then we are going to have her parents pick us up, so that we don't have to drive after drinking, and have a sleepover.
Anyhoo, after lunch, I had an appointment with my psychiatric meds prescriber. She upped my Lamictal to 300 mg (from 200 mg) after I told her that I had been depressed for half of the semester. I guess that I'm so used to being depressed, that it didn't seem out of the ordinary for me. I will pick up that prescription tomorrow. Then I came home and went to the gym.
It's been pretty good having a gym membership so far! Yesterday I went for the first time. I just biked a little and used the stretching area. Today I biked and did the elliptical (mostly because they have ellipticals with TVs attached to them!!), and I did some arm weights. I did a lot of exploring of the facility today, and got a feel for what I like to do. I am trying to focus more on how I feel and less on how many calories I'm burning. Lucky for me, I no longer remember how many calories biking burns. Thank goodness for my Dory brain! I am sore today from yesterday's workout, and I will definitely be sore tomorrow... Since my workout, I have been vegging out in front of the TV. Lame, I know.
My toe is doing well. It doesn't look as gross as it did the first day, which is good, and it's not bleeding anymore. It doesn't really hurt either, unless I touch the spot where there is no toenail anymore. The soaking and re-bandaging twice a day is getting old though... and I have to keep doing it for two weeks! Grr. I hope it heals nicely, so I have something to show for all this.
Ok, I really, really need to sleep. I need to stop staying up late and actually get to bed at a decent hour. Good night :)
