I spent Sunday with my family and complained to both of my parents that my face hurt, specifically right above my sinuses and near my left eye. I figured that my sinuses were very backed up because I cried so much the night before. (I'm totally fine, just had one of those "I'm all alone" moments and had a nice, cleansing sobfest.) I took Advil PM on Sunday evening and slept like a rock.
I woke up yesterday morning with a more intense pain around my eye. I touched the skin around it and it felt raw. I ran to the mirror to discover a very puffy (and painful) eye. I spent an hour and a half waiting at the doctors office for him to spend exactly 60 seconds with me and determine that I have a stye (not Pink Eye, as I'd guessed).
Despite my discomfort and general unattractive state, I actually managed to check everything off of my Monday to do list:
Buy Dad a birthday gift - Done! He turns 55 on March 30, and we're cruising to Mexico to celebrate! I can't say what I got him, but I will say that I put a lot of thought into it and I think it's the perfect pressent.
Make Easter Brunch reservations - Done! We're going to Norma's. I have Easter brunch every year. I even got to go to church a few times and they were all lovely experiences. I do miss living in Dallas this time of year and seeing "HE IS RISEN" signs on peoples' front lawns. Yes, I'm Jewish and I like Easter. Judge away. It's fine.
Write a Thank You note to a dear friend's parents - Done! On my favorite Vera Wang Thank You stationery. Her birthday was on Sunday and her parents took her closest friends (including yours truly) out to dinner.
Read "Shoo, Jimmy Choo" - Done! Finished it in the waiting room at the doctor. It's a book about personal finance for young women. The author is speaking at Junior League Headquarters on Thursday and I'll be attending. I highly recommend this book to my female readers!
Okay, clearly this was far from a strenuous list, but I feel content that I was somewhat productive despite my pitiful demeanor.
