Busy Couple of Days
Already done this morning: the birthday cake is in the oven - the loot bags are done -- now if the parents would just RSVP to let me know if their lil ones are coming on Saturday !! (insert exasperated sigh)
I am hoping to have our birthday cake look something like the one above....... ohhhh in case I haven't told you - I always did themed birthday parties for my kids -- so I am continuing that tradition with the lil one. This year the theme is "Artist". So I have lots of artistic games/crafts organised ... and loot bags full of artistic 'junk' (grinning)
expect lots of pictures come Monday.........
I have been having some 'health' issues for the last week or so....... I couldn't figure out what was going on......... Tuesday was the worst. I went shopping and could feel my heart pounding - like it was gonna jump out of my chest...... I felt like I was walking through chest high water. And I was SO exhausted. Then yesterday I started having pain in my shins ... hips... feet.... to put it mildly I was scared.
Then I took a deep breath and realized I have not been taking my B12. About 4 years ago I was diagnosed with very low B12....... symptoms of low B12; tiredness, heart palpitations, pain in your bones.... OH and depression and feelings of helplessness. When had I last taken my B12??? It's been at least a month.......... slap me now!!!
So Tuesday night I took my B12 and again last night........ hopefully in a week or so I will be feeling more like my old self.
Here's to raising my B12 levels ... and to birthday parties for lil ones!
