I love Fridays. I feel like a kid let loose from school on Fridays. I swim then go in to the shop today to sort goodies then do books. Afterwards I post pictures from the store to Facebook. Then I’m free. You can see me racing around and waving my hands yelling, “Free, free, free.”
Usually I come home to catch up with you all. Sometimes I play an online jigsaw puzzle at Jigzone, and I’ve been known to play solitaire till I win one game too. Then I grab a book….yesterday a new sci-fi, today a new co-authored non-Plum Evanovitch.
I figured out what made me so very ill on that last cruise. It wasn’t the water, like I thought. Tho one night it was a reaction to the food, the rest of the days it was either caffeine or the sweetner. A month or so ago, the same reaction happened here at home. Once I stopped drinking coffee and diet cokes, I immediately began to feel human. I did have a cup of weak tea in the late afternoons before dinner and had no adverse reactions.
If you have allergies and sensitivities like I do, you become your own investigator. I didn’t want to give up cruising, but I was really sick the whole cruise last year. Now decaf at breakfast. I can do this. Some days now, only one diet coke. I alternate with tea, and the continual, sometimes horrific, nausea is gone. Free indeed.
So if you want me, I’ll be curled up with a new book and a weak cuppa. Probably laughing since I am reading Evanovitch.
