Today I had big plans to go to church, the fellowship lunch, and the gift exchange, but that did not happen; my body was informing me we needed to rest today. So unfortunately, I had to miss everything at church, which was really sad. I stayed in bed all morning making a grocery list–looking up Christmas cookie recipes and researching a low FODMAP diet (one website informed me kangaroo meat and foie gras are both low FODMAP, which was a big relief).
Eventually I got up, did some tidying up, and bought my last few Christmas gifts for friends. Buying gifts for people is just SO much fun to me! I worked on Diamonds social media tasks for a while and then did some more tidying and getting things in order. Late afternoon I went over to the house to let the dog out (because my family was out of town for the day) and practice voice (because I feel self-conscious belting in my apartment with neighbors on the other side of the wall).
I came home and almost fell asleep at 7:30 while snuggling with the kitty trying to journal, so I believe it’s time to call it a night. I am exhausted and my stomach was not kind to me today!
