it’s a good thing i took vacation so i could get poison oak and not be able to go back to work the day i’m supposed to. instead i went to the urgent care for a cortisone shot. hope it kicks in soon. i feel like a zombie with a flesh-eating virus.
i have soaked myself in baking soda paste, apple cider vinagar. taken hot showers. used calamine lotion, hydro cortisone ointment, tea tree oil, etc etc. my reaction is pretty severe.
it is definitely time for me to start making some changes. should i wait til the new year? haha. i feel guilty every time i eat, now. i know that i am FAT and having my abdomen all swollen from the poison oak is only making that more obvious to me. i caved to this today because i had to wait for two hours at the urgent care. it’s no excuse. i had other options. this type of food comforts me, duh. i’m gonna change my habits really soon!!!
so, my mom and i took a trip to go visit my sister in socal.
my sister made us turkey dinner. neither i nor my mother really helped much. my sister made it look so easy, like help would only get in the way.
it was all delicious.
sweet potatoes, green bean casserole. i really didn’t help make any of this. i feel bad about that, can you tell? i just didn’t have any energy and i think it’s because i was busy coming down with an epic case of poison oak. oy!
also, nobody really understands me and it’s like i am from another planet or something.
life can be awkward.
my mom took me to eat at in n out. i wasn’t hungry but i wanted to eat in n out with my mom, so i did. isn’t it lovely? so picturesque. i already facebooked it and made it my profile pic. saying there that the best part is the crispy inside part of the bun.
that must be why she is in much better shape than i!? plus a lot of other reasons.
had to borrow her flip flops because i forgot mine at the hotel.
no excuses! it’s prescribed. must fit it in! mandatory. required. and i must begin to show some restraint and responsibility when it comes to what i eat. don’t indulge the bulge.
peep my toe shoes.
those pants are weird.
they are a size too big for me.
earlier i’d been wearing a really cool thai vest, but i got too warm from doing tai chi, which IS actually a workout, in case you thought it was just all namby pamby b.s.
i am watching Anna Karenina right now. it’s not bad. not bad ‘tall.
i’m lovin’ it.
now it’s in my new apartment’s bathroom looking all dapper.
can’t even figure out how to get pliers to do the trick.
not bad for a chronic book hoarder, eh?
it’s fun. there’s a lot of joking that goes on. at first, that got on my nerves for some reason. i guess i wanted everyone to be quiet because that is how i picture t’ai chi… but you can do it and still have fun. who knew?
