Don’t Get Excited

Don’t have a lot to share with y’all tonight. My appetite is better this time around. I have taken the nutritionist’s advice and have eaten the following in the last 24 hours:

  • Protein drink
  • Baked sweet potatoes and cauliflower, twice!
  • Chicken breast
  • Scrambled eggs

Here is what I didn’t eat: candy. And that is a huge feat, considering a special old family friend brought this over:

I am in the low-grade fever portion of the party. It takes a lot out of me to even get out of bed while my body is fighting the demons inside. Fever just hovers around 99.7.

I make sure to drink my Natural Calm magnesium cocktail, which another good friend recommended for these restless legs. (Fizz a tsp. of the powder in a little hot water, then pour over ice + lemon sparkling water.)

In exciting news, my huz came over today with my #1 subordinate, Dante the wonder dog!!! He is our first baby and knows exactly what to do to make his human family feel better. Such a treat to get to cuddle with him while I’m on Exile Island.

After my mom made us a delicious (I think?) dinner, I am back in bed and my sister and I are digging in deep on trashy television and I am proud of us. Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Auditions? Yes, please.

    You resisted the temptation of a giant jar of Starburst candy? I would’ve lasted about 23 seconds – I love those things. By the end of the day, there’d be a mountain of wrappers around my bed, and just the cherry ones left in the jar. 😝
    I love that photo of you and Dante!
