A nice day today

August 28, 2017 Monday

The NyQuil helped last night and I fell asleep fairly easily and stayed asleep until about 5. I had a long “coughing up stuff” time but it wasn’t as bad as the morning before.  I was able to go back to sleep for a while.

I got up, gathered what I needed for Dudettes and headed out.  I took bananas, applesauce, crackers, Sprite and cough drops with me.  It was not the best breakfast I’ve had but it was okay.  For lunch, I had the last thing on the BRATQ list – quesadilla.  It was very good.  (It isn’t really on the list, but don’t tell Rachel that!) Thankfully, I’ve had no real problems with digestion today, just some queasiness.

I was able to do some sewing at Dudettes, but I left early as I was quite tired.  I came home and rested a while.  No nap, unfortunately.  Then about 5 I left for Book Club.  We had a nice meeting and a wonderful supper, but I was totally worn out so I left early to get home.

Now, it’s almost 9:00 and I can barely stop yawning long enough to type.  I will be going to shower and bed very soon.

So today was a nice day with my only complaints being getting so tired so easily and the coughing – I just don’t seem to be able to really quit coughing.  I have to make a real effort to get a deep breath sometimes – I’m very tired of this.

Morning weight – 217.0  I knew the pizza would add pounds to my weight and it did.  That’s just what happens when I eat pizza.  (I broke down and bought a single layer coconut cake while at the store today.  It is all the fault of ?? who has agreed to accept the calories since it’s her fault I was in that store to begin with!!!!  Not really, it’s my fault!) oh well.
