Thanks for all the kind words on Wednesday.  I know I was a bit bitchy.  I felt bitchy.

Yesterday was very low-key.  I got up late.  Chris made waffles.  Later that day we went over to the Nautilus Diner and I had turkey and stuffing and cranberry sauce, and I felt better.   I couldn’t eat a whole portion but maybe that is a good thing. My appetite has been off all week.

Last night I had an unrestful sleep so I am feeling a little tired today.   I woke up several times during the night and at 5:30 I woke up with my head completely clogged.  I found the nose spray and it worked but about an hour later I had to get up for real to get ready for work.

And I am not sure if it is my allergies, or what, but my taste buds seem to be acting up and nothing tastes right today.  I had some microwave mac and cheese and it tasted funny so I threw most of it out.  and then I had some ginger ale, and THAT tasted funny, too.     So, I have this odd taste in my mouth and I am tired but at least that stops me from being worried and that is a good thing, right?

Oh, and I basically said “to hell with it” to all the teen books today and started an adult novel, called In the Dark by Mark Billingham.  I really like Mark Billingham and I have had this one on my desk and it really won’t take me that long to read and I only have two more teen books to read anyway, so I am going to spend the weekend reading an adult novel.   I really need it.   Even if it is rather tense and involves a drive-by shooting.   I guess I don’t mind tragedy when it happens to other people!!!

Oh, did you see on the news this morning that a store clerk was crushed to death when a crowd pushed their way into a Wal-Mart?  Can you believe it?  What could they be selling that would cause something like that to happen?  I would rather pay a couple of extra dollars and have my life, thank you very much.  If this is what black Friday has turned into, I am glad to be at work.   You won’t see me at a mall this weekend!

And, as I do most of my holiday shopping online, you won’t see me out, anyway!  I really only have Chris and my mom and my sister to think about and we really don’t exchange all that much, so I can do it from my living room.   And I like it just fine.

Anyway. Thanks again for your support.  It keeps me blogging.  And be safe if you go out to meet the crowds.   I don’t want any of you getting crushed!

Have a good weekend.

    I didn’t know you were a fan of Mark Billingham? Well, I’m glad you had a low-key holiday. Sorry bout the taste bud situation, though. Anyhow, you’ll have your project done soon enough!

    Sounds like your Thanksgiving was nice and relaxing.

    You won’t find me at the malls, either. Online is good for me, too.

    I agree, that was a stupid, tragic loss of life. I hope that man’s family sues Wal-Mart!!!

    I’m glad that you had a nice low-key Thanksgiving. 🙂

    I am glad to hear you are better

    I concur – no malls for me! On line is more civilized.

    I saw that too Doug and what a loss. Honestly I’ve only gone out once for the sales and guess what? I didn’t buy one thing all morning, not one. What in the world could have been so important that they took the hinges off the stupid door to get in faster? geesh.
    We had a low key thanksgiving as well. But by five thirty I was beginning to tremble and vibrate so It was a really good thing we just had the four of us here and not any extended family or friends. Hope you continue to feel better.
