Tres Pathetique

No, I have no idea if my title even makes sense.  Tres Chic means something is good, right?  Where are my French speakers? Anyway, I wanted to insinuate something being pathetic.  
Yesterday, Dan and I decided to get out of the house and just go tool around because I was feeling somewhat OK and I knew I could sit in the car and not be dead.  HA!  I was so freakin' wrong.  Even just cruising around in the car was too much for my patheticness!  By the time we got home I was in agony.  Today is even worse.  But, I am glad that we did go drive around and enjoy the beautiful day even if it firmly kicked my ass.  I don't know if I'll be able to do that again before all this crap wears off. So, I did get out and savor the fantastic sunny weather. 

Today, I'm toast.  Absolutely beyond pathetic, toast.  I cannot believe how I feel.  It's insane.  We went to Costco this morning (still not sure why ... we didn't even really look at anything) and then when Dan pulled up to Trader Joes, I couldn't get out of the car.  So ... I didn't.  Until I remembered that I needed more plain greek yogurt.  So I schlepped myself into the store to get my yogurt and it took absolutely everything I had to get into it.   I couldn't believe how much this sucked.  But, I did get my greek yogurt so I don't have to go back out to the store. 

Dan got inventive last night and decided he wanted to make corned beef and cabbage today.  Since I have had this dish a grand total of like twice in my life, this was all his thing.  We got a brisket, cabbage, potatoes and carrots and he found a recipe.  He was up first thing this morning getting it all in the crock pot. We sent out a text to my brothers and stepmom to see if they wanted to stop by and then knew we would need a lil something extra.  We found Irish Soda Bread at Olivers (seems the only place that had it) and got a small cake, some chips and dip.  I also managed to get a few cupcakes from Sift because this is the only time of year that they have the Irish Car Bomb style cupcakes that Dan likes so much.   I got myself something different. 

And now, I can't move.  I am couch-bound and I can barely even sit up to type this.  All I wanted to do was ride in the car today.  All I wanted to do was be out of the house on a day I still felt somewhat-ish OK.  Why did it have to do this to me?  I know, I'm supposed to be resting but ... I didn't think being a passenger in the car would be such an ass kicker.   Lesson learned.  I will now remain close to my little cave and couch because apparently anything other than surfing my couch is too much. 

I got the most awesome gift in the mail yesterday and now ... I am headed off to the world of Amazon greatness to get some new reading!!!!  I LOVE BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!  Thank you so much to my darling Colleen!!!!!
