On a different leg... I've realized I've gotten very happy with my deal purchases. Thus far I've purchased $60 to BluWater Grill, $30 to Tenyaku, $20 to Downbeat Diner & Lounge, a 75 min massage with scalp treatment at Apeautique, a mani/pedi at Beautiville (one for me, and one for my girl Natasha--although somehow it got mixed up and sent both of them to her as a gift...), and a cut & highlight at the Beauty Bar. I am looking forward to driving and taking advantage of these beauty ones before I go back to work. You know, like a makeover!! Except for half the price ;) Today PlayHawaii is offering a 2-hour pikake oil-infused Swedish massage from Kapononui LomiLomi for only $65 (an incredible deal considering it's normally $167) plus the fact that it's 2 hours. I definitely want to take advantage of this, but it's a little more than what I like to spend on these deals...plus I have an awesome masseuse that I'd like to use regularly at Calm Studio Spa, and you know how that goes :) I feel bad enough I'm cheating on my hairdresser...
Anyway. Today was a lazy day. Mother Nature paid her monthly visit, which I think might have contributed to my overly tiredness, or the fact I went to bed at 3am last night, or the fact that I have this weird lingering coughing up stuff/clear liquid coming out of my nose relatively constant. Either way, I slept, woke up took some codeine, went back to bed, woke up, actually Shredded Level 1 today, paid for it in pain, took some ibprofeun, took a shower, laid down, went to midweek, then here I am. So...lots of sleeping. Sadly, I missed going to visit my coworker in the hospital as she was discharged around 2, but I didn't wake up until 230. I haven't heard a lot from her, except this morning, saying the pain was sucky, then I missed her responding telling me she was awake (alas, I wasn't!). Oh well, guess I'll have to visit another time at her house, once I'm legal to drive.
Time for some reading before I head to bed...it'll be nice to sleep before 3 am :)
*edit* (after reading, which was an awesome reminder that God heals in his time, and that I am called to simply obey.
But I forgot some of the food highlights :)
-Tomato soup is a nice change to blending food. I can simply drink it in a cup, without having to use a syringe. It's nice.
-In the season of monthly addiction to chocolate, I have gotten creative...because quite frankly, chocolate milk just doesn't cut it for me. I can actually fit small pieces of chocolate into my mouth, through the hole on the right side where I'm missing my three back teeth. Totally awesome. Successes: mini reese's peanut butter cups and whoppers. Failures: reese's pieces (the hard shell is not delicious as I wait for it to dissolve).
-Oddly enough, I crazy love strawberry milk, generally with 1% (somehow not as good with fat free). A little cup of milk with a squirt of liquid nesquik...sooo....yummy. I'll let you know how it tastes with 2% since the hubster accidently purchased that today.
