The movie we saw last night was part of a UCLA extension class in which they see movies and have someone from the film talk about it and answer questions after the film. It was the remake of "The Flight of the Phoenix", and it was a predictable piece of fluff and I enjoyed it. The sound was SO loud that it had numerous members of the audience covering their ears to protect from it. I didn't do that, but it give more strength to my headache.
After the film we headed home and I was in bed by 10 pm, but couldn't sleep until after midnight. Not being able to get to sleep at a reasonable hour isn't going to help my headache go away.
Today is a Thanksgiving Day luncheon that is being thrown by one of my company's suppliers. Should be plenty of good food. Good thing, since I haven't been cooking much lately.
This headache just won't quit. It's been better or worse, but hasn't fully gone away. I'm not sure if it is stress-related, diet-related, weather-related, or what, but I want it to GO AWAY.
Aside from the headache, my weekend was good. The play Friday night was okay - some good acting, some bad acting, nothing spectacular. My friend's performance was the best of the bunch, and it was great to see her perform outside of acting class.
Saturday we went to the Queen Mary and some other locations to see about getting married onboard ths ship or at some other locations near there. The ship was clearly fantastic in its day, but is faded glory now, and just didn't feel like the kind of place we want to get married. Some of the other places we looked at look very promising, though. My head was aching something fierce Saturday, and when we got home I napped for over 2 hours to try to get rid of my headache so that I would be functional for Gordon's mom's party that night. Fortunately, it worked, and I was relatively bright-eyed for the party. That was a very good thing since Gordon and I were in the spotlight all evening - his mom announced our engagement at the party. All her friends were so kind - one couple offered to let us have our wedding at their home in Malibu (ocean view, and apparently a gorgeous home), another offered to give me her necklace when I admired it and said that it would go with my wedding dress (I told her perhaps it could be my 'something borrowed'). Everyone said what a great guy I am getting. It was a great party, and lots of fun. We got home about 1:30, and were asleep by 2am.
Sunday we had to get up by 9 or so to go to Anne's father's house for brunch. Traffic was light, so we got there in no time, and had a lovely time, but the three of us were so tired that we sat around the table and yawned most of the time. Anne's dad was laughing at us 'young ones' being so tired. After brunch, we ran a couple of errands, and then went home so I could do some paperwork. I HAD to take another nap, though - my head was aching again, and I just couldn't tackle that paperwork without some rest. After my nap, Gordon made some dinner - rice pasta with vegetables and chicken. Yum. I worked on my papers for about 4 hours total, and finally got it all done about 10:30 last night and was plum tuckered out.
This will be a busy few days - a movie at UCLA tonight, Anne tomorrow night, and my last acting class on Wednesday. Somewhere in there I need to get some groceries to make garlic mashed sweet potatoes, wheat-free stuffing, and chocolate pecan pie for Thanksgiving Day with Gordon's family.
I just hope my headache goes away so I can enjoy it all.
This has been quite a week. I've had this headache off and on all week, and can't figure out what is causing it. Not good. I'm hoping to be able to rest a bit this weekend and get rid of it once and for all, but it will be a busy weekend, too, so we'll see how that goes.
Gordon and I are going to see a friend perform in a play tonight, and that should be fun, and then tomorrow we are going to check out a couple places where we might get married. Tomorrow night Gordon's mom is throwing a party, and then Sunday is brunch with Anne and her dad, and Sunday night is book club. Somewhere in the middle of all that I'll rest. I hope.
Well, I ordered my wedding dress, and I found a lovely tiara on ebay for 20 bucks. Love it!
I'm still feeling kind of weird and blah. I don't have a headache now, but I don't feel like I'm all here, either. Didn't get much sleep last night, either, so I'll have to get to bed early tonight to try to get rid of whatever this is.
Went to dinner last night with a friend, and had chicken piccata. Yummy, even if it did have capers in it. As dedicated as I am to the BTD, I'm not going to worry about little things that rarely cross my path like capers. Then we went to see "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason". It was okay, and had some funny moments, but wasn't nearly as good or funny as the first one.
Went home and found my surprise from Gordon - a sweet note that he had wanted to sneak into my bag, but didn't have an opportunity to, so he left it on the keyboard at home. He's a keeper!
Had a protein powder smoothie for breakfast, and the rest of the chicken piccata for lunch. I'm going to the gym right after work and will get on the elliptical machine and then go to yoga class. I've been informed that dinner will be tilapia and green beans. Yum.
My headache is still lingering, but has lightened up considerably. It is probably 10% of what it was yesterday. I still don't feel quite like myself, but I feel vastly better than I did! Had trouble falling asleep last night - my legs were all twitchy and I just couldn't get comfortable. I took my potassium and PhytoCal, and even that didn't help.
When I get headachy or ill, I tend to reach for comfort foods, and last night was no different. I made macaroni and cheese - rice pasta, almond cheese, and ground lamb in it. Yum. Then I sat on the couch and watched three episodes of "Joan of Arcadia". Love that show! And now I'm all caught up. The last one was a tearjerker, but I don't want to give away the plot, other than to say that someone died.
Gordon was teasing me last night saying that he has a surprise for me today. Then, of course, he wouldn't tell me what it was. Grr!
Not much else going on today - just trying to stay out of headacheland....
Oh, and I'm ordering my wedding dress. : )
