I was up early today. Earlier than I thought I would be since I was up till the wee hours of the morning not able to sleep as is the usual lately. I really have to find out what’s causing that and put a stop to it. But Quay was up at about 8 or 8:30 and then I couldn’t go back to sleep after he got out of bed so I got up at 9:30.
We had errands to run today. Well, it was more that my brother had errands to run, we would just be along for the ride for the most part. But he was in bed until almost 11, so we got a late start. He wanted to go to New York to buy cigarettes at the Indian reservation and Plattsburgh wasn’t that far away from there so we went there for our errands.
The cigarettes were cheap. He bought three cartons, so that should last him a while. Then we went to the mall to do some Christmas shopping. Quay found a pair of dress shoes for work at a decent price at Target. For $25 we don’t expect they’ll last forever but his old ones are falling apart so…
Then we went to Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch. I can’t believe that Chris ate 20 wings. I don’t know where he puts it all and stays so skinny. I ate half of my chicken wrap and took the rest home.
The next stop was Walmart. He got some random things and an orange fish to put in his fish tank he’s setting up today. This fish is for his girlfriend. Oh, and he bought a bunch of decorations for the tank for the fish to swim in. A sunken battle ship, a sunken battle helecopter, and a temple idol thing. We bought dog food and dog treats, too.
The last stop was Petsmart where he got some things for his Leopard Geckos and then some more fish.
The tank is all set up now and it looks awesome. He just needs more fish for it, since it’s a 55 gallon tank. And I am exhausted after all that walking around and being around all those people. I got so anxious.
When we got home and were putting the tank together, I went into the bedroom (my bedroom, I should say, since my brother’s bedroom is where the fish tank is) to take my shoes off and I ended up having a seizure. I woke up to the dogs freaking out and my mouth tasting disgusting like the dogs had been licking my face or something. I remember calling to Quay, but he didn’t come, and then when I finally told the dog to stop whining, he came in and found me on the floor and helped me up onto the bed. If it is the stress and anxiety causing these seizures, I am just glad that this seizure didn’t happen while we were in the middle of the crowded mall or while we were out to eat or something.
Oh, and you may have noticed that the blog has a new look! I wanted something simpler and with a pop of color. Something that wasn’t black and white. So what do you think? All of the pages on the other style didn’t have anything on them except for the About Me page anyway, so here’s the updated look!
