Missing out and Making up for it

The most annoying part about being sick is missing out on things that you want to do. I have always been a planner through and through. The kinda girl that has a to-do list for everything and never is too busy to say yes to more plans. Unfortunately, this just isn't the case anymore.

Last week was extremely rough symptom wise and I spent most of the week in bed trying to avoid the inevitable fainting spells. I was hoping that after my IV Infusion I would start feeling better because I had plans for the weekend.My little brother had to go up to University Reno Nevada for a baseball camp to show off his skills to the University coaches ( basically, he's a stud !) and I had planned on going up with he and my mom so I could visit with my cousin and her sweet baby girl who live in Reno. Well, infusion day came and went and no improvements in how I felt. A few months ago I would have pushed my stubborn self to go but I have learned that sometimes it just makes for more of a hassle for everyone and I would end up feeling even worse. So instead I decided to stay home for the weekend. At first I was bummed out of course but thanks to my amazing friends I was still able to have a great weekend.

When I decided to stay home a few of my friends came over to have sushi and watch movies for the night. Plans changed a little bit when the UPS guy showed up with my latest Scentsy order which included 5 different parties! We definitely had our work cut out for us lol. So we created a little assembly line and cranked it out while watching Law & Order SVU re-runs(all three of us are pretty much obsessed and yes sometimes I think Olivia and Elliot are my friends).One of my girls decided to spend the night and the next morning we layed low since I wasn't feeling too hot. By afternoon I had enough strength to grab lunch and take a quick shopping trip in my wheelchair. I was on a mission to find some scarves that would allow me to cover up my port without sacrificing fashion and of course I ended up at MAC and snagged a gorg new lipliner "Currant" to match my current favorite lipstick "Rebel".


Sunday I got out my Cricut-an absolute must have for the avid crafter or scrapbooker!-and worked on my brothers junior scrapbook .He's a senior now and it's almost baseball season again so I gotta hurry and catch up! Even though it wasn't exactly what I had planned I was able to still have a good weekend without pushing myself to the next level of sick.

Moral of the story : staying home doesn't mean you have to miss out completely
