Oh Goodness!! What a WEEK / WEEKEND!!
Well, today is Monday and it is a marvelous one. Let’s celebrate a new beginning of a new week with the Healthy Diva!
But I need to whine a bit now. Ok, so I have to start on Wednesday night – I was out with Sylvia and even though it was a warm summerevening, I was freezing. This weirdness resulted in me waking up in the middle of the night drowned in my own sweat (sweet, I know) – with a fiever. Ugh. I can not even remember the last time when I was sick. I think it was at the last break up, which is 8 years ago. It’s like a law that I get the flu when I go through a break up.
So, Thursday and Friday I spent all day in bed. The few times I made it to the kitchen to make tea and then back to bed, I had to sleep for at least 2 hours cause I was so exhausted🙂 I couldn’t handle any food except bananas and chocolate covered rice crackers. I slept 3/4 of the time and when I didn’t sleep, I watched trash tv, had pity on myself or called Momma 5 times in a row to whine at her. Don’t tell me I am the only one who does that. As much as I try to be the perfect daughter, Momma needs to take care of me when I am sick. She knows everything, so she also knows why, when and how I will feel better.
Thank God for Skype I got the chance to exchange some real words with my Canadian Bestie Jen from over in Vancouver. Don’t worry, she can be a normal person, but most of the time she is crazy. That’s why we are best friends. She’s an improve comedian so of course she had to be silly when I took a pic of her. Well maybe she was just shocked about my appearance = messiest hair on Earth, sweaty face, unshowered ( I think for 3 days or so?) and wrinkled pj’s.
I finally took a shower and a highly needed pedicure. Time to feel like a human being again.
In the afternoon I was craving PEOPLE, fresh air and some fun. I joined the Dragonboat Race in Sandro’s hometown. It’s a huge event every Summer with races and party. So fun. I even dared to fuel my body with a Martini/Prosecco Drink that was as huge as my face. Believe me, I felt better after that. Maybe my body just wanted booze.
It was good to see all the faces again! I missed them. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see all I wished for, the event is just too big. At least Nicole’s husband had fun to take 78 pictures of the 2 of us holding our goblets.
Sandro was there too and I am so glad we are on good terms. It’s what makes it possible that I can still see his friends too and we can be together at events like this.
Late afternoon I felt exhausted and made my way home to Basel. A scary thunderstorm came up and I was happy to be home and safe. Dinner:
Sunday morning I went to the gym after 4 days of doing nothing. It felt good, but my body was definitely weak – lack of food and the fiever took their toll. But it was good to finally move again!
I went for a loooong coffee date with a friend who I haven’t seen for way too long and it was so nice to catch up and update on each other’s lives.
So I am back on track with my health and feel a lot better. Though it is always interesting that my body forces me to lay down and rest when a lot of emotional stuff is going on. The move, my solo-life – it’s a challenge and I have days when I feel lonely, overwhelmed and godawful and am convinced that I will die alone and forgotten. But ya know what? These days come and they pass. There is no way I lose my smile even if my hair is frizzy and I smell.
I hope you all had a great weekend and are off to a good start!
