However, I could not stand one more minute inside the house. My husband is watching the play offs in baseball, so it was not going to bother him that I went out. So, I did.
But first, I decided to play with my makeup--lightly applied, but something different.
Why feel like we have to look sick? I have an invisible illness, and I wanted to use what I had to make me look better. Wearing makeup was a treat!
I went for my favorite summer t-shirt and a pair of earrings with a little bling.
I'm home now. I have on a brand new pair of pajamas that got that special smile from my DH. I bought a soft robe I have been looking at for almost a year. Moreover, I got two of my grand-babies outfits.
I went to Walmart after I went to Bealls Outlet and rode the electric cart, only shopping for things that interested me -- things I don't always look at. No -- I did not buy everything I looked at. I even put a couple of things back. One does have to make choices.
One of those neat choices was something I just learned exists. It's a Belkin Cooling Lounge. You put it under your laptop computer, and plug in the attached USB cable to your computer. It has a fan and keeps your laptop from getting so hot. It has a fan, and the shape is designed to give increased air circulation to your computer. Also, it has a cushion and is not heavy in my lap. I am impressed already. My usually hot laptop is cool.
Yes, I'm still sick and still fatigued, I smell like a Whopper from Burger King now, and I did something I enjoy. Sometimes, those of us that stay in our houses too much need to break out and do something different.
I cannot wait to see what tomorrow is like.
