Yesterday was a funky day. Today, I wanted to be comfortable, but get some energy back from liking my outfit. 😁

Busy, busy week on the road. Wednesday was a day full of Shakespearean comedic blunders (letting my GPS get me lost not once, BUT TWICE), so all I wanted yesterday was to lay on the bed and watch Star Trek movies and eat fast food. Today, I wanted better food, but I also wanted to watch the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions (no cable at home! Priorities!!!). So, I compromised and got some Punkin’s BBQ to go.
That mural! ❤
I got a sliced brisket sandwich and housemade chips, and I booked it back to my hotel just in time to see Journey.
Tasty brisket, and a lot of it! Moist, flavorful, not too fatty. Great sauce! Zingy and sweet, not too hot. I had to shoo myself out of the chips on the way to the hotel. Crispy, not too oily. Yum!
Next time you’re in town, get to Punkin’s. It’s on Grant Avenue, go east from exit 72. 😋
Well, it looks like rain here today… my curls think so too! They were starting a mutiny on my head this morning. 😁
Today’s outfit is crazy simple, but I would rather have a sturdy outfit on when that Oklahoma spring weather gets crankin’. ⛈

This week, I am working out of town in Garvin county, Oklahoma. I felt like lunch needed to happen sooner than later today, so I stopped at Wiley’s Sweets and Eats in Maysville.
The food is good, and a very reasonable price. I paid $7 for a burger, chips, and drink.
It smelled so good, I had to have some before the picture! You can tell when a restaurant makes their burger patties, and Wiley’s does.
Wiley’s is at 6th and Williams in Maysville. Go enjoy a summer day on a shaded picnic table, in a lovely little town. ❤❤❤
So, I have always had allergies and wicked postnasal drainage. I have also always assumed that the two were related. Back in 2009, during a very stressful time (divorce), I had a long bout of drainage, coughing, mild heartburn, nausea and vomiting in the morning. Fast forward to 2013, same scenario. This time, I was so anxious about my job and personal debt, I assumed it was contributing to the symptoms I was experiencing, like before. Fast forward to a month ago (new job!) and here we are again. Over all this time, I have tried a number of different approaches: reducing dairy, talk therapy, yoga, PMR (stands for progressive muscle relaxation), every allergy remedy under the sun… In March, I went and got checked out, thinking it was allergy related. After a month of Flonase, I was still having problems 3-4 days a week. I was doing some research online about my symptoms, and an article about reflux came up. I had many of the symptoms listed, but preferring to have a real medical professional’s advice and diagnosis (sorry, Dr. Google), I contacted my doctor and made an appointment. Sure enough, he thinks it’s reflux. Now, if I can get the reflux under control, maybe I can work on my responses to stress. 😂
Now, on a more pleasant note, here’s my outfit for today. Please excuse the potatolike quality of my photography.
- Blouse: originally Old Navy, thrifted
