What a fucking weekend. I’ll spare you a few of the details. I will say that so many things have “happened” recently with regard to my body/health that I started spiraling down the deep end on Friday.
The trigger though, was that I had an eye dr. appointment Friday around lunch time which was supposed to be fairly routine. It wasn’t. Turns out the blood vessels in the back of my eyes are “tortuous.” And she said my blood pressure was borderline high – it was 130/70 (my blood pressure is literally always 120/70). I would need to see a retina specialist and talk to my primary care doctor about my blood pressure. WTF.
I let panic take over. I might have had thoughts like “well, now I’m just going to drop dead” going on in my head. No, I really did have that exact thought. I felt terrible the rest of the day Friday and quite light-headed; I was afraid I was going to pass out again like I did in December when I fractured my jaw. I went to the doctor on Saturday and long story short had some ultrasounds done. All I know for sure now is that I have a complex ovarian cyst that needs to be re-evaluated in 8 weeks.
The weekend was actually great though, in spite of all the goings on. Leo is a trooper when I need his help and feel bad, so he was incredibly supportive. He went with me to one of my favorite restaurants, Flower Child, on Sunday for lunch and LIKED IT. LOL. And we watched a couple of good things together: the documentary on Andre the Giant on HBO (loved it) and Battle of the Sexes (the Billie Jean King vs. Bobby Riggs match). I also started watching Wild Wild Country which is RIVETING and so fascinating.
I feel great now – just trying to stay steady. It is what it is…no more, no less.
But shall we talk about clothes now for a minute??
Specifically Elizabeth Suzann?
I sent back my ES/Alabama Chanin order, but I’d love to hear from any of you guys who have received yours. What do you think? I think I’d really love the black dress in a size smaller, or even that plum color, but I didn’t love the ochre.
I had a chance to try the clyde culottes in a size 6 over the weekend, and I cannot believe I didn’t trade my size 8’s out for a smaller size earlier. Oh, and also, they were the tall length and CLAY. The clay color is amazing, and I am now leaning towards getting the culottes in size 6, regular length, in clay for fall. The fit in the size 6 was a million times better.
I also got a pair of navy linen clyde pants in size 6, tall for slowre. Of course I tried them on, and I love the linen clydes!! I would probably get the size 4, regular in those though.
BUT, if you haven’t heard, the lead time is now 6-8 weeks. And there are more than a few complaints going around about quality issues when orders are received lately. I don’t know….those are not total deal-breakers for me, but they’re definitely making me seek out alternatives. Of course, I wanted the Black Crane linen carpenter pants to be my “linen florence pants” alternative, and they weren’t. So…
Hope you had a good weekend 😉
