dani_meows @ 01:31 pm: I made it all the way upstairs and managed to make one whole icon, lol.

I'm still really tired and I don't know if it's the pill entirely or if I've got a slight cold/allergy thing.

I'll probably end up taking an afternoon nap, Ian's already promised not to wake me.

In the good news side of things I made an experimental dish in the crock pot last night and it tasted amazing. Tikka Masala.

My skin is still tingly with improved circulation and all that cilantro makes me want a big bowl of pho.

I also want to figure out how to prevent my pictures from becoming too small on dreamwidth so that I can type up a few recipes.
