I have been a bad blogger this week. Well, last week and the beginning of this week were totally insane at work, and I’ve spent the rest of the week trying to catch up with my regular work that I let slide in the meantime.
On Monday I had my appointment with the GI doctor. I made the appointment over a month ago so I actually feel much better now, though occasionally still get the chest pain and fast heartbeat, but I haven’t even taken my drugs for like a month now. So my options from him are basically: a) I’m crazy, b) I’m better, c) I may or may not be better but if I want to find out they have to stick a camera down my throat. So I’ll go with option B.
My mom came over on Monday night to bring me birthday presents! I hate presents, actually, but she didn’t do too bad. She gave me a very cool frying pan that I’m excited to use, I just haven’t had time to shop for food or cook recently. (The charming Ming Tsai designed this pan and demonstrates it in a video at the link above.) Then she and GG and I went out to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner, and walked around the mall for a little bit.
On Tuesday, the birthday celebration continued as GG and I went to Qdoba to use the birthday coupon they sent me. Then I came home and knitted a couple Waldo hats (already sold one!) before bed. Oh and of course I watched the Duggars. I twittered a lot during the show and posted on TWoP, so I don’t know if I’ll add anything more here.
Wednesday I worked from home, did a bunch of stuff around the house, and went to band. It was only our third rehearsal, but man, band is silly this season!
Last night I went out to dinner again with my mom, and my grandmom. We’re all very similar, it was funny. We all ordered almost exactly the same thing, and then we unrolled the napkins from our silverware packets and set up our place settings the same way… I watched the season premieres of SNL Weekend Update Thursday, Parks and Recreation, and The Office (all great!), and was going to switch to the Fringe premiere at 9:30, but then I decided to just watch Fringe all at once and instead watched the premiere of Community. I don’t like it. Will not be watching. Sorry Joel McHale.
Tomorrow GG, Jess, the baby, maybe Rob, and I will be going to do something fun and potentially silly. I will report back!
