Sunday Post: January 16, 2022

Hello, my lovelies.

It’s Sunday evening, much much later than I usually write these. Somehow the day got away from me, lost in a haze of books and Bookclubs and cookie baking. And dreadfully disappointing football.

The week seemed to go by rather quickly, which is weird since I don’t really remember doing much. I paid bills, had a dentist appointment, found someone to remove the tree felled by last week’s storm.

Promised that I would read the bookclub selection early this month, and read it the day before, just like last month.

Still sort of sick, and really not sleeping well because of all the Sudafed. There is a reason that people use it to make meth. Just saying.

But it’s been a fair amount of time, and the vertigo really isn’t abating. I suppose I should call the doctor. It might just be lingering congestion. It might be a new MS thing. I might have some wonky crystals in there, like my mom does. But there’s no way to know until I know…but wow, I hate going into a medical facility during pandemic surges. I’ll start with a televisit…but I’m not sure that they will be able to treat me from that.

It’s snowing AGAIN outside my window. Turning to freezing rain here in a minute. I hate that the lovely roomie’s commute may be jacked up in the morning. I’m grateful that I don’t have to drive in it. I’m gutted that my doctors think I can’t drive at all.

It’s all so complicated, up there in my brain.

I read four books this week, three of which were extraordinary. I’m a little afraid of what to read next…this book hangover is gonna suck, y’all.

Never Fall For Your Fiancé was…dull. Boring. Pedestrian. I didn’t like it at all. However, this month’s Book Club Selection, Remnant Population, was amazing, as was the new Lucy Score book, Things We Never Got Over. Finally, I spent today with The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and…I mean, you guys know how much I loved Daisy Jones…and this one was, I thing, just as good. Transformative. Again, I find myself in the position of knowing that these characters aren’t real, that Evelyn and Celia and…oh, God Harry…aren’t real, never were, and having that completely break my heart. More to come soon on Evelyn Hugo, I suspect.

OK, that’s all from the sidelines, where things are not looking good.

Till next week, stay safe, learn to make your mom’s favorite cookies, take naps and read something that breaks your heart a little.

  1. I’m sorry to hear that things continue to be a struggle for you, Lori. I hope you’re able to see a doctor and get some relief soon! Looks like you’ve had some great book company though I’m sad to hear Never Fall for Your Fiancee didn’t work for you. Was looking forward to reading that! Evelyn Hugo is one of my all-time faves and ugh, it devastates me these characters aren’t real 😂 Hope you read some more great books next week!

  2. I have the same problem with Sudafed and it becomes a choice of not sleeping because I’m stuffy and headachy (because of the stuffiness) or not sleeping because I took medicine to alleviate those symptoms. Very frustrating. And I totally agree with you about drs offices. I figure that’s where people would be headed if they don’t feel well and don’t realize they have Covid. But then, I’m the person who always stays far, far away from people sneezing or coughing and use lots of antibacterial when I go for an appt even before Covid. 🤗

  3. I’ve been avoiding the doctor, but finally went last month for a check up and the poor Nurse practitioner I went to see was just so overwhelmed with so many patients. I hope you find some relief soon. I need to read the Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo really soon, I’ve heard so many great things about it.

    1. I have given in and will have a video visit tomorrow. I’m not sure how much they can figure out that way, but we’ll see.

      I found Evelyn…mesmerizing. It was…so real. I hope you love it!
