Today has been a pretty good day. I received a very sweet message from a friend, received my final two bras in the mail.Bra TMI Again )

Michael and I watched the first hour of The Lord of the Rings final movie. I don't have much attention span for movies or television so we're breaking it up into four parts instead of just two. I read more of the Philip K Dick Exegesis book and checked out two more books from the library on the topic of obsessive love (I've read the books before, but don't clearly remember them).

I had to take a Klonopin around 5pm due to anxiety, but at least it's only been 2mg the past two times. It's really helping... My brother brought me home a giant hamburger with pesto sauce, green peppers, and tomato, but I'm too full to eat most of it:( I will eat most of it tomorrow. My mother also bought me a cherry Arctic Rush from Dairy Queen. My mother had to go to Dairy Queen to get her boyfriend Dilly bars because he feels really sick and is craving them. I hope he feels better soon...

I will probably try to go to bed early tonight so I don't wake up so late tomorrow.

Bleh. Just read something depressing related to my eating habits/desire to get back to my personal "natural weight" when not hypothyroid -- go to bed on an empty stomach. I can't do this! If I am not quite full when I go to bed I will eat in my sleep. Or at least, because of insomnia, periodically get up and eat whatever convenient crap I can find. If I have healthier, but filling, foods right before bed I sleep better and am less likely to sleep eat. And I don't have a big enough appetite to eat a giant breakfast, like recommended. Mornings I often feel nauseated, especially since going on Zoloft. I'm lucky if I can just make it through the morning without Zofran (anti-emetic med).

Did errands today. Probably won't get around to painting, but I will at least find a reference picture for the rabbit for the baby shower painting. Maybe I will paint the outline of the rabbit. For errands we went to ALDI (a grocery store) for bottled water, then Caribou Coffee where I bought Michael and myself a frappuccino (yay! I finally spelled that word right!). Then we went to Comcast to return the cable boxes. That was kind of a long drive. We went to Target for Michael and I bought Chobani yogurt. They were out of vanilla, which disappointed me. Then I noticed they sold pomegranate Chobani yogurt! I had never realized this! I love anything pomegranate! So I bought the last three. And that is what I will try eating today. I am excited:-)

Also now I really want to win that Jason Wu auction. It will never happen and I'm sure there will be a bidding war at the end, but I can dream:P I swear next month I will go on a financial fast. No shopping, no new books. I have plenty of books and libraries. I have plenty of perfectly good clothes. I want to save money so I can go on trips and so forth.

Today has been a good day:-) No anxiety at all so far, yay! I read Shadow and Evil in Fairy Tales, spent time on the personality forum I frequent, and went with Michael to Teal and Eric's apartment to watch Beastly with Teal. Then we stayed for dinner! I'm always so hungry due to Zyprexa and can't cook, whereas Teal can. I've found that because Zyprexa makes me so hungry I will eat almost anything. I used to be a very picky eater. Teal made noodles with chicken sausage, zucchini, onion, and tomato. I ate three bowls! I usually don't eat onions or zucchini. Zucchini and onion really doesn't have much of a taste when cooked and were completely palatable, tasting like the seasonings. Michael ran out to the nearby Whole Foods while the rest of us ate dinner to get me Luna Bars. I'm going to try and keep only healthy foods in the house so I don't binge eat on junk food, but I will eat when I'm hungry. I'd like to lose a few lbs (literally -- not that much), but I'm not going to weigh myself and will be patient. I gained mainly in my chest and thighs/butt.

My brother bought me a very expensive sandwich today! I requested he and my mother buy me one after my brother got off work because the deli is near there. I thought it would maybe cost $4, but it cost $8! It was just a chicken sandwich with pesto, tomatoes, and bean sprouts (and cheese, which I removed). It was really good... I was so hungry by the time I got it. Now Michael and Dan are out dropping off a couple prescriptions for me and going to the grocery store. I need more Chobani vanilla yogurt. I'm glad I get to stay in. I've been spending a lot of time talking to the people in the forum I frequent. Some of them are very wise... Especially this one girl whom I thought was at least in her 30's, but she's only 19! She's way more mature than me. I like her.

Bleh, I had a (big) chocolate chip muffin in the middle of the night and ate another today, during the day. I'm going to try to eat mostly protein and fruit the rest of the day... I don't have any vegetables and there's a blizzard going on now, so no going to the grocery store. I'm going to exercise soon. I also want to meditate today. I intended to do that yesterday and didn't. I want meditation to be a daily thing, like exercise.

Today is my first day without Ritalin LA and my appetite is insanely huge.:( I have more healthy foods to eat now, though. Michael went to the grocery store without me since it's huge sensory overload for me (he's mostly fine in a crowd as long as nobody is chewing gum or typing). I'm having the desire to eat when I'm not even hungry. I just ate an apple and a bunch of tomatoes... I will be having a hamburger for dinner, with ketchup. Michael is making the hamburgers now.

Despite all the eating, my stomach is still a bit upset. I don't know if I will complete The Thirty Day Shred tonight. If I don't, I will at least do stretching exercises.

I also really want to do a tarot reading tonight. Painting and editing my poems went fine. I've watched all The Facts of Life other than their trip to Paris, though I will check youtube, etc. for it later. I also would like to catch up in the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic series. I'm also going to do more reading. I have the latest manga of Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Raising Shinji Ikari Project to read. Not to mention several books from Christmas...

Today has been a pretty good day, though not productive. Michael and I returned to Hobby Lobby to buy me more canvases for 40% off. I started a new painting, though I haven't yet finished my former painting. I'm watching Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, given to me as an early Christmas present. I've read a bit and edited some poems. I watched more Facts of Life. I dropped my obsession books off with my psychologist. Zoloft is still working magic and my anxiety is mostly under control and I'm not at all depressed. I have decided to take Ritalin LA in the early evening instead of the morning because it helps with my night anxiety (my day anxiety is totally controlled by Zoloft now) and suppresses my giant appetite and cravings that make me binge eat at night. Tomorrow I will paint the head of a dragon and a parrot. I might just outline it and do the scales. I tend to paint in short spurts now. It seems less overwhelming that way. Despite my healthier diet, I'm debating getting Chinese food tomorrow (just 2 egg rolls and a small fried rice) and eating a little bit of it for several days. I was able to find some caloric information, though I know that won't be completely accurate from restaurant to restaurant. I've been reading From Girl to Goddess and will probably watch Project A-Ko with Michael tonight.

A soup that no longer seems to be sold. It was by Campbell's and had chicken, shell pasta, and vegetables.

One slice of pizza, potato salad, and two Luna Bars (the caramel nut brownie ones). I have had a stomachache all day and had to take Zofran before even eating anything. Though potato salad and pizza were bad ideas>_< I think I made the right decision to not get Middle Eastern food tonight... I think that would make me actually vomit:( I will wait until after church and book club on Sunday. I'm probably going to have an apple soon and I've had some apple cider today.

I don't know what's wrong with me. I feel like I'm going to faint. I'd felt cold this morning and fine in the afternoon, but suddenly felt very hot and sweating. I just turned the air-conditioner on. I don't think it's due to lack of food because I ate a hamburger earlier and just had half a bagel with peanut butter and I still feel sick. I had a small mocha earlier but that was hours and hours ago and I felt fine when drinking it/in the first few hours following it. I'm wondering if this is another one of my random hot flashes with no real explanation. I'm so tired...

200: whatever suits your fancy.( a picture, random facts, what you did today, your plans for tomorrow)

Today Michael and I went to The Little Red School House, where he had gone on field trips as a child and my mother did, as well. I don't think I've ever been there. There was a "house" with lots of geographic and environmental details, information, maps, and models. There were some live and stuffed animals native to our area. Then we went on the nature trail where we took some pictures. It was about a 2 mile walk. It was mostly in the shade, though, due to all the foliage.

After that we went to Walmart and Target and then to eat at Michael's favorite pizza place. Then we went back to Walmart to buy me nectarines, bananas, and a half-gallon of vanilla almond milk. I'm going to try to make the almond milk last as long as possible because I love it and we can't afford to buy it regularly. I wish I liked soy milk, as it is cheaper.

Michael mowed some of the lawn and it's raining now. I'm trying to unwind and then Michael and I will watch something together.

I know my bloating/distended abdomen is not just due to lactose intolerance (but IBS, I guess, which is a label covering all sorts of things). However, I got really sick after having a big milkshake today. I took Lactaid with my granola and milk this morning and that was fine. Then I was super hungry when I got home and wanted a big milkshake. Forgot Lactaid at first, but did take it early on (but just one pill). Drank way too much and almost vomited and still have a lot of stomach cramping, bloating, and nausea. I'm only going to ingest small amounts of ice cream and milk at a time from now on. Bleh... Feel so sick:(

Today was a pretty good day, though right now I'm quite depressed, partly because I didn't buy more water for my cats and partly because Mrs. Bates still doesn't seem to be feeling well. She seemed to feel fine yesterday, but we think she's constipated again... And she only wants to eat the dry food, not the wet, which makes her more constipated.

Today Michael and I woke up early (after going to bed very early) and we took the bus to Japantown. There were performers all throughout the day for Japan relief and we donated some money. Also there was a garage sale nearby for Japan relief and I bought a used copy of Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame on dvd. Michael bought a J-pop cd. Japantown was much cleaner than Chinatown, but things were also much more expensive. There were lots of neat stores, though! I had chicken teriyaki and rice for lunch. It only came with chopsticks, which I don't know how to use, so I think I used them upside-down and sometimes I just resorted to my hands:P In an anime store Michael bought us a not too expensive stuffed Totoro. He also bought me a little zodiac dog figurine (my Chinese zodiac animal is a dog) and a little print thing that has Japanese characters and the English translation under it -- it says "Dreams come true." There were a variety of sayings or words to choose from.

We also ate chocolate-filled tai yaki (a fish-shaped pastry) from a stand. It tasted like chocolate chip pancakes and was pretty good. Later while exploring the outskirts of Japantown we shared chocolate frozen yogurt (there was no vanilla and I wasn't sure I'd like the "original" flavor, though we should have tried it).

The bus ride back to Fisherman's Wharf was quite crowded. Afterwards we bought Michael and his mother sweatshirts similar to the one I just bought yesterday. Then we went back to the room for a little bit. Then we went to Fisherman's Wharf again and walked down the streets, ate dinner at In n' Out Burger (which we don't have where we live), and we walked further down the wharf where you could see Alcatraz well. We forgot the camera, though, after returning from Japantown (where there are cherry blossoms in bloom!), so we'll go by the wharf another day and take pictures there. Michael and I walked through some of the surrounding streets, browsing, and we bought sliced pineapple and watermelon from Safeway (a grocery store). The staff of the hotel just brought us up a refrigerator free of charge so we're keeping the fruit there. Michael was going to buy me Ghiridelli dark chocolate filled with mint or raspberry filling (we also passed the Ghiridelli building/restaurant on the wharf), but I decided I would rather have fruit instead. I'm still quite full, but will eat more of the fruit for breakfast. Tomorrow we plan on going to San Francisco Zoo. I think I'm going to get ready for bed now.

Overall today has gone well, though it's been thoroughly exhausting. I tried to go to sleep at 4pm yesterday because Zyprexa makes me need 10-12 hours of sleep a night, otherwise I vomit when I force myself up. The flight was at 7:15am. I took 15mg Zyprexa, 1mg Klonopin, and 2 Benadryl pills and still couldn't sleep at all. I took Zofran at 4am and some Ritalin LA at 4:30am and then I felt good. My mother drove Michael and me to O'Hare Airport. The line wasn't too long and security went fine. They checked my purse because I had a roll of quarters in there. While killing time before boarding Michael and I bought an orange Hi-C from McDonalds (and that's what I drank to take Dramamine (motion sickness medication) right before the plane. We also went to the Dunkin Doughnuts stand where Michael bought a doughnut and I bought a blueberry muffin for the 4+ hour plane ride. The plane ride was uneventful. There were lots of empty seats in the back, so the person who had our aisle seat left to go sit with husband in the back and Michael and I were able to spread out. We played an incredibly long Uno game that I eventually won. I also did some reading. I only really had motion sickness during take off and I didn't vomit (yay!)

Then we went and got our luggage and found the BART line heading in the direction we needed. We just made the train! Then we found our connecting bus and just made that, too. Unfortunately on both the train and the bus it was very difficult to hear what was being said over the intercom, which was unnerving. And the signs at the BART stations weren't as clear as the ones in Washington DC's metro. We made it to Fisherman's Wharf, though, which is where our hotel is located. Our room was ready when we arrived. It was also super hot here. I'm lucky I wore a tank top under my sweater so I could take my sweater off. I didn't even bring sunblock because my moisturizer has spf30:( I hope I don't get more freckles and moles... My mother told me it would be cold, so I basically just packed sweaters. I have one t-shirt I added last minute. But it did get colder this evening and it's supposed to be colder tomorrow...

We decided to walk to Chinatown (1 mile), but we got lost several times. It was very tiring. Chinatown was nice, though! Interesting shops and food (though I'm not adventurous about food and there was a lot I would not eat). And everything there is so cheap! I bought myself a large cream puff, 4 pork dumplings, and 1 large pork bun for $6. I was stuffed and when we left to go get Michael pizza I only had a small bite of his and didn't want any for myself. But then as soon as we got back to the hotel I was no longer full and desperately wanted the pizza Michael had!:( It's a long walk, but maybe we will do it again before we go home and I can have that pizza. In Chinatown I also found a pale pink polar fleece zip-up sweater for $10. It didn't have the same logo as my mother's sweater (she also bought one in San Francisco and I've wanted one since then) -- it has "San Francisco" embroidered across the front. Later when walking around the streets neighboring Fisherman's Wharf I saw other pink fleece sweaters that just had a small logo, which I would have preferred:( But I still like my sweater and will wear it tomorrow!

This evening we returned to the hotel for a short while then walked over to Pier 39 of Fisherman's Wharf. There are street performers blasting music full of bass and it's really bothering Michael's OCD. We saw the sea lions and Alcatraz in the distance (it's funny that in the mist and from a distance Alcatraz looks almost like an enchanted castle:P). We looked around the shops and took some pictures. We ate Ben and Jerry's ice cream -- two smalls cost us $9.50! What!? The small was *really, really* small, too. I'm also rather craving IHOP now (it's next to the hotel). But I'm going to try to control myself.

Tomorrow we will probably go to Japantown via bus. Michael wrote down some directions for that. I will try to have some kind of Japanese food there that is cheap (maybe some noodle dish or something). Then the next day we will probably go to the aquarium right on Pier 39 (very close to us). We also walked around the area tonight and saw a whole lot of seafood restaurants. And Hooters. And McDonald's.

Now I think I'm going to write a couple emails and read and take my medications and go to bed. I hope everyone is well:) I'm quite sore from all the walking today because I'm really out of shape:(
