Thursday Thoughts

I am on Day 18 of whatever evil sinus crap is going on with me. I finished the Sudafed and Flonase that Urgent Care prescribed two weeks ago. I finished the antibiotic my doctor prescribed a week ago. I still have sinus crap and ear whooshing. It might be time for another doctor visit. Ugh.

Thanksgiving was one week ago. We were cleaning up food crumbs and other messes for 3-4 days afterward! I felt terrible and didn't even have a wee sip of wine because of all the medicine I was taking. I didn't have much of an appetite, nor could I really taste much, so I didn't especially enjoy the food on the holiday itself, but I have been enjoying leftovers, especially mom's stuffing. Thanksgiving is all about the stuffing for me.

Of course the day after Thanksgiving we moved on to Christmas! I really didn't feel like hauling out the Christmas decor, but the 4 day weekend really is the best time to get it done. Our tree is up and all the other assorted decorations are in their places. Now we just have to figure out gifts and I have no idea what to get SP!

And which cookies to bake. Provided I recover from this evil illness in time to bake. Right now, there's no way. Holiday decorating day wiped me out - I was frequently out of breath and my ear was whooshing like crazy so I'm definitely not feeling like a baking binge or even much like celebrating.

What We're Eating:

  • Thanksgiving leftovers
  • Beer Braised Pork with roasted cauliflower or steamed broccoli
  • Dessert: leftover pumpkin pie, apple pie, cookies

What We're Watching:

  • I've joined SP in watching the last 2 episodes of Dr. Who. They are the only episodes of Dr. Who I have ever watched. I must be really infected with sinus crap if I'm watching SP's shows.
  • We watched The Meg (that kind of movie is hilariously entertaining!) and Crazy Rich Asians, which we both really enjoyed.
  • Our local television channels had some issue with Dish for a couple hours one night so we didn't get to see the fall finales of Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, or Grey's Anatomy. I have since watched Grey's on demand (please no Meredith with Deluca) but I can't seem to find the other 2 shows.
  • We also still have no HBO with Dish so we've been trying to keep up with some shows (like John Oliver) on YouTube. 

What I'm Reading:

  • I was so proud of myself for finally finishing the September issue of Smithsonian yesterday afternoon. Then SP brought in the mail and the December issue was in the pile. Great. Back to 3 issues of that.
  • I read the new Jack Reacher book. I didn't think it was quite as good as usual even though I enjoyed finding out a bit more about Reacher's father. The other plot line was just so-so.
  • I'm not having much success reading because of my sinus crap and ear whooshing. I just cannot focus on the words. I read a page, turn, and have no idea what is going on and have to go back and re-read.
