Being thankful for future evil scientist

For the last few days, I have been vegging. I started some new meds and am adjusting well to them. I am just in a mood to be lazy. I have posted some pictures from my early birthday celebration with JJ. My favorite is the duck. I don't have many photos of me as a child. JJ can never say this.

I had at great Thanksgiving. I did absolutely nothing. The most work I did was heating up the turkey, the dressing and green bean casserole that I got from the grocery.

I watch a 10 hour Law and Order marathon. Thanksgiving has always been my mother and I holiday. This year, I just needed to be alone and reflect. I did this in my pajamas with plenty of Law and Order and tons of magazine.

I am thankful that I am doing okay mentally and physically. I  am thankful that I have son who is healthy and sweet. Of course, he has decided he wants to be an evil scientist and take over the world. Mommy will be allowed to keep control of all bookstores. He has created a laugh for himself.

I had appointments Wednesday with my new doctor, who got me an appointment with a therapist. I am also back on medication. I think it is for the best.

The visit to see JJ went very well. His father and I are pretty nice to each other. He told me he was worried about my ED and if I looked healthy. This has not been a good year for me. When I got sick in June I weighed 115 pounds.  I now weight 106. With everything I have went through, I still managed to do okay without constant meds and therapy. But I need help because I feel myself slipping.

Daily Dose

1. Watching the Sci Fi channel.
2. Found the best chicken salad in the world at the local butcher shop. It is good and worth the money.
3. I am thankful to have such a wonderful little boy. He doesn't know how much of a motivation he is for me.
Super JJ

  3. Vegging seems to be the thing to do during the holidays after someone special passes on. May your Christmas be warm and filled with other loved ones.
