I can hardly wait to see this movie. One of my favorite directors, Sofia Coppola has made a movie about all of my favorite things: royalty, history, the colour pink, jewels, cake, bonbons, dresses, shoes, puppies, hairstyles, 80's music, parties and champagne!
I really think I need to see it. I need a pick-me-up. I try to keep this blog (and my state of mind) positive but things have been weighing on me lately so please indulge me, only for one post.
My health isn't the best and it hasn't been for several years. I have several pressing concerns, but lately I have been struggling with an aggressive rheumatiod arthritis with no success. Some of the medicines that I have taken this year caused my long blonde hair to fall out. Sometimes I feel grumpy, irritable and rotten. I really have to work not to be crabby.
Last week I started a new drug that is only available by injection. With all of the poking and prodding I've been through over the last few years, you'd think I would be okay with it, but it turns out I'm not. I'm almost embarassed to admit that I cried at the hospital when I had to give myself the first needle. I thought the nurse would let me practice with an orange but apparently this is not the case so if you ever need to give yourself a needle you'd better get your head wrapped around that idea pretty quickly. You just have to jump in and do it. I wasn't very good at it at all, so it's a good thing I'm not a nurse. This new drug makes me very, very sluggish and I sleep almost all of the time these days.
That being said, I guess it's time to get off the couch and do something. My sweet husband Ben brought me not one - but two bundt pans I'd had my eye on at Winners just to coax me back into the kitchen and get back to baking and blogging about it. We sold our house for a tidy profit so I'd best get looking for a new one. I have lots to do, I just have to find the inspiration. Do you ever feel that way?
Anyway, in the spirit of living positively, I think the Marie Antoinette movie has me thinking about all of the things I listed above and how much I love them. In keeping with that, let me list a few other good things and happy frivolities that I plan to turn to in an attempt to lift my spirits:
Ben is coming home from a week away on business.
I've been invited to Lolly's for afternoon tea.
The Tigers are in the World Series, as I predicted last year at this time.
Decorating another house might be fun.
Building another house after that might also be fun.
I should get back to baking and scrapbooking.
Pepper has a brand new puppy.
I love my family and friends.
I enjoy my blogging.
Christmas is coming.
Did I miss anything?
