What did I do this Christmas weekend? (December 23-27, 2017)

Heya’ everybody! It was a rough holiday for me because of my health problem, but I still managed to do some stuff! I have included Monday’s, Tuesday’s, and Wednesday’s adventures as well since my weekend was the total pits. : ( However, I will not be including what I spent this weekend because I spent all of my money on my health problem that had to deal with constipation and frankly, it would be embarrassing to post the medicinal stuff I had to buy for it on the internet… So no spending updates for this Weekend Update.

But come see what I did anyway!

On Saturday, I ended up staying home because I couldn’t go to LOCAunt’s and LOCUncle’s to join them and my cousin’s for Christmas dinner. But LOCMom managed to take a wooden salad bowl I bought at Goodwill for LOCAunt and LOCAunt liked it a lot! So that is always good. ๐Ÿ™‚

On Sunday, I went to the hospital for my constipation and the doctor diagnosed me with Fecal Impaction. I looked up this condition on the internet and I KNEW that I had it because the symptoms of it sounded like my own. And what do you know, sometimes the internet can help you identify medical problems, haha. ๐Ÿ˜› So, I got treated for my medical problem at the hospital and I have been taking the drugs they prescribed me ever since. I think my fecal impaction is gone now, but I have to get cleared by my regular doctor first. Which I won’t see him until next week. *sigh* I just hope my colon is all clear of any obstructions and I am not constipated anymore after this. : (

After my hospital visit, I went to LOCCousinC’s house and joined my family for Christmas Eve dinner! You could say I ate a lot of twice baked potatoes, haha. ๐Ÿ™‚ “A lot” of twice baked potatoes were only 2 though and leftovers for the next day. ๐Ÿ™‚ After dinner, we then did a White Elephant gift exchange like we always do and it was a lot of fun! I came home with a picture frame that was pretty. โค After visiting with my cousin’s, LOCMom and I went home and relaxed for the night.

On Monday, LOCMom and LOCBrotherA were at our house for opening gifts! LOCBrother A got me a really fancy shirt that was made in Italy where he is stationed at in the Navy! The shirt has cactuses on it and is very fluffy and white. ๐Ÿ™‚ Will have to wear it sometime to something special. โค I also got a Laugh/Cry Emoji Bluetooth Speaker from LOCMom and CANDY GALORE! See’s Candy to be exact! Can’t eat it at the moment because of my health problem, but when my health problem is gone, then NOM NOM NOM! After opening presents, I just stayed home all day and finally got on with treating my fecal impaction. And… I think the medicine worked. Like I said earlier, just have to be cleared by my doctor that I am absolutely cleaned out! Oh man, this whole thing has been a nightmare. : (

On Tuesday, it was Goodwill’s 50% Off day sale and WOW, have I never seen Goodwill so crowded! When I was in Goodwill, I bought some gently used glass cups that had nature stuff on them for the spring and summer time. I love themed glasses that you can use year round. โค I also bought two plastic Sterilite shoe boxes for OCC gifts for $1.19 each. Score! I also bought a book cover sleeve for an OCC gift as well. Not a bad day if you ask me! The most painful part of my trip to Goodwill that day was the liiiiiiiine. Oh man, there was so many people in the line to the checkout counter, but my stuff was worth it, so I waited. : )

And on Tuesday, my mom wanted to go back to Goodwill to browse and I bought a Talbots shirt for 8 bucks and Jones New York sweater for another 8 bucks! Check out my Goodwill outfit!

Pants not included, haha. Not the best picture of me either, but I must say my new Goodwill clothes look snazzy! The sweater is kind of different, but I think it looks good on me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Then on the same day, something AMAZING happened! LOCCousinJ texted me wondering if LOCMom and I were home and I texted them back saying we were at Goodwill. LOCCousinJ then traveled to Goodwill and handed me a present! And inside this present was an ESSENTIAL OILS DEFUSER! I couldn’t believe she bought me one! I was so happy and thanked her. ๐Ÿ˜€ She got me one because at the White Elephant gift exchange at LOCCousinC’s, I managed to steal one from LOCAuntV, but it was stolen from me by LOCCousinC herself during the game since she wanted another one. ๐Ÿ˜› So LOCCousinJ felt sorry for me and bought one for me! Isn’t she the greatest? ๐Ÿ˜€ I tried out the defuser tonight and it works wonderfully! LOCFriendT was also with her and it was great seeing her again! LOCFriendTย and I are going to go thrifting at Goodwill sometime in early January and I can’t wait! It should be fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

After saying goodbye to LOCCousinJ and LOCFriendT, LOCMom and I went home and just chilled for the rest of the evening. ๐Ÿ™‚

So all and all, it was wonderful holiday weekend despite my health problems. It is nice to know that there are people all around us who love you and only want happiness for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

How was your holiday weekend? ๐Ÿ™‚ย

  1. Hi! Happy to hear you got your problem addressed๐Ÿ˜Šlove the outfit,it looks great! I love thrift stores,especially on Mondays when it’s buy one get one free๐Ÿ˜Š Happy New Years to you and your mom๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰


  2. I hope the meds work for the constipation! I’ve never had it to the extent you did, but it was horrible enough. The diffuser sounds really nice. I see the oils in Whole Foods or much cheaper at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I’m waiting for a few of my gifts from Target and Bath and Body Works. Since they were for me, I waited until the 26th to get the best deals, and I used gift cards as well. Have a great New Year!


  3. My goodness, that was a rough Christmas eve with your health problem and hospital visit. Glad to hear you are on the mend. Hope you get cleared by your doctor.

    Glad you were able to enjoy the holiday anyway and have fun times with your family. How nice that your cousin gave you an essential oil diffuser. I have one and I love it.


    1. I just wish my appointment with my doctor was earlier. : (

      Yay for defusers! I used mine last night and it was very nice! I think it needed more lavender in it, but I will be sure to remember to add more in the next time I use it. ๐Ÿ™‚
