|It's Friday again, which means it's time for Friday Fragments (click the badge!), hosted by Mrs. 4444 (pronounced "Fours") at Half-Past Kissin' Time. So here's what's up this week:|
Hubs and I traveled to Iowa to visit his family for Christmas on the weekend before Christmas. I was pretty sick, but soldiered on! I only wish I could have played with my 21-month-old niece, but I didn't want to spread the germs. We stayed in Galena, Illinois, on the way there and back, where we saw some wild turkeys right outside our door! We spent Christmas Day at home together as planned, but sick, which was not planned. My side of the family, which consists of my sister and her husband (everyone else lives out West), will be celebrating this weekend. I hope no one is sick!
The Autographed John Taylor (Duran Duran) Autobiography
On one of my previous Frags, I mentioned that I saw this at a local, independent book store and crowed so much about it that I was afraid Hubs would give it to me for Christmas. Well...I was right! He got it for me as kind of a joke gift, but it was a surprisingly good read and brought back lots of memories of my early teenage years. A definite must-read for any Duran Duran fan, past or present. But Hubs really surprised me with a pair of shoes he knew that I've had my eyes on! I was totally impressed.
The light box seems to be helping quite a bit. I have more energy in the mornings, but this seems to wane as the day goes on. I guess that's normal, but I feel tired too early in the day. I suspect this is the side effect of the increased dose of my anti-depressant (Pristiq). I'll be able to tell more in the next week or 2.
Also, I came across this excellent article for people who have bipolar disorder: Coping Strategies for Bipolar Disorder. It's also a good reference article for family and friends.
Have a Happy New Year!!!
