The Post-Valentine's Day Crash
I went into the weekend already feeling a little off. I stayed up too late on Friday night preparing for my boyfriend's visit, and that didn't help things. I had a great weekend. My dad and I picked the boy up from the airport around 11 am, and after my dad went home, the boy and I went to see Valentine's Day. Cliche? Yes. Cheesy? Maybe. Entertaining and completely cute? Yup!
We went to a nice restaurant for dinner. It's in a huge, renovated barn near my house, which sounds weird, but is actually gorgeous. We had an amazing crab dip appetizer, and I had a glass of Malbec with my steak. Mmmm...
Stayed up late on Saturday night, slept in Sunday, then went to see Wolfman in theaters with the fam. I can't remember the last time I saw two theater-movies in one weekend, but the boy loves movies and we had a lot of fun.
Mainly, it was just nice to see my boyfriend. We're long distance, and due to a bunch of different circumstances on both sides, it had been four and half months since we'd seen each other, which is way too long.
Unfortunately (wrapping back around to my original point), Valentine's Day weekend has an unwanted effect on us chronic fatiguers. I'm missing class for the first time this semester (excluding snow days when class was canceled) because I just can't do it today. I'm exhausted, my head hurts, my tummy hurts... did I mention the exhaustion? Urgh. It's just so frustrating sometimes. I feel like instead of an equal reaction, every action has a ridiculously disproportionate reaction. Chronic fatigue syndrome goes against the laws of physics. The Newtonian police should arrest this disease immediately and dispense justice!
Okay, I'm just getting ridiculous now. I hope you all had love-filled weekends and that your relapses are nonexistent or short-lived!
Love, love, love,
