Overwhelmed by Hunger.

Should curiosity beseech you, treat yourself to The Hunger Games. It would be selfish of me not to recommend this amazing book that I picked up this week and finished in less than 24 hours. While it had moments reminiscent of the Goblet of Fire, it was a quick, riveting read. The moment that I finished the book, I headed straight to Amazon to buy the next two. 

Other than that, I will be the first to admit my absolute and utter Daniel fast FAILURE. After a successful, water-filled Monday and a painful Tuesday, my migraine and my nausea had completely taken me over. I left work a little earlier than usual; barely able to keep my eyes open. By the time I walked through the door, I was in full zombie mode. I groaned (cried) all the way to my bedroom, shut the door, and fell face-first onto my cloud. David called and offered to make dinner, which, at that point, sounded much better than anything I was facing at that very moment. I tried to sleep. One hour. Two hours. Nothing. I woke up feeling even more nauseated and dizzy than I had before I laid down. I knew caffeine had been the culprit, and had ultimately gotten me where I was. So I made a quick cup of coffee and chugged it as fast as I could without burning the roof of my mouth. Still nothing. I took an Excedrin, two Vicodin, and drank some water. Again, nothing. I straggled to the couch, eating up his delicious spaghetti and meatball dinner: grain, meat, sauce, bread, something...anything. My nearly forgotten about hunger had certainly been quenched, but I was still dizzy; still a throbbing mess. 

When I woke up on Wednesday morning, I felt much better. Decidedly, I knew I couldn't continue my fast the way I had been going on. Whether it's postponed or simply moderated, I'm not sure, but I've tried to continue eating fruits and vegetables, and drinking my water...and my cup of coffee, of course. 

Today, David and I made it to the much anticipated Jason's Deli for lunch. Simply wonderful. David and Jason, if you were wondering. Have I mentioned that I love this boy? I've noticed that I've had trouble sleeping over the past few days, as well. I'd like to attribute it to rarely sleeping alone. The past few days have contained a much too much empty bed. Thankfully, I've convinced David that his similar recent sleep trouble is related, and I currently find myself in good company. He's finally started up his blog again! Check it out here. It's got a fresh new look (you're welcome). I'm hoping that this means that he'll have the opportunity to guest blog for me sometime in the near future (thank you, Brittany, for this awesome idea!) Speaking of Brittany, I'm hoping she and I will be trading eachother's territory for a guest post, as well. 

Other things...Lynn and Mallory and I will be sharing Mallory's bathroom for the next few days while David works on the other bathroom. It's in need of some serious TLC and remodeling. Thank God for men who do manly work. Otherwise, that bathroom would stay this way forever. Oh! And I'm hoping to segue into the technologically-savvy world of Apple products (as if my iPod touch counted for nothing) by purchasing my very first iPhone. That's if I can find a feasible plan, or get together with someone else and their family plan. Being a Boost Mobile customer has spoiled me. I'm quite comfortable with my $53 a month for unlimited everything, thank you very much. It will be an eye-opening transition. Yay responsibility!

Good night, for now. Wish me well as I continue this strangely satisfying pseudo-fast. Check out David's blog, and read some of his ridiculously blessed life. If luck be the lady, he is my lady. Ok. Good night.
