One more day

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Husband's coming home tomorrow morning.

That is GOOD.

I'm at the end of my metaphorical rope here. I'm just out of energy, out of strength, out of patience.

I'm turning what energy I have to the dining room project. It's a big one; I decided I wanted to surprise my husband by cleaning up one of the largest clutter zones in the entire house, the dining room. It's a gigantic mess (and when I'm done... yes, I'll post pictures) but it's something that's been a huge mental and physical barrier to good health in our home. So I figured I'd help him with his stated goals of decluttering our home by giving him a major boost to getting started. I haven't been sleeping well anyway, and I don't anticipate tonight being any different, so it'll be good to be productive instead of lying in bed watching late night TV.

The girls have been a little aggravating today, but I suspect that's my own depression rearing its head. I really, really need to get to the gym; but that's not in the cards for at least the next 24 hours. I'll try and figure out a way to workout here at home. Maybe I'll inflate that exercise ball I bought a while back and actually use it. There's some ball workouts on Sparkpeople, afterall.

I wish I could stream those on the XBox.

Alright, so back to the grindstone.

    Clutter is a weird thing. It takes no energy to make clutter, but the energy it drains from you when it is present is awful. My bedroom and bathroom are my next project. I walk in there and instantly get stressed out, just from the clutter. Your blog has motivated me to get that "party" started!

    Catching up on your blog, what a week! Awful and fantastic!
It's like I lost a week of September somehow. I keep thinking we're in the teens. I guess we were up until yesterday.

    Breath in...

Breath out...

Breath in...

Breath out...


then once you have allowed yourself to find your centre. moving out into that very busy, thing called life, and allow yourself to enjoy doing one thing at a time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Take Care.

    I hope the cleanup went well, and today was a good day for both of you. We're all pulling for you.

    You can do it sweetie, just take one area at a time and don't stop until you've reached a good ending spot. Then pick it up from there the next day. I have faith in you.

    Hang in there, it will get better. I think your idea about the dining room is a great one, but maybe you don't have to have it ALL done when your hubby gets home. Maybe just showing you've started on it will be the best thing and you can work on it together.

    Oh hunny. If I lived closer I would come and monster sit so you could go to the gym. But all I can do from here is tell you that I am here for you, and if you want to talk I am happy to listen. You are an amazingly strong woman, never forget that.

  I often read your blogs (and don't often comment), but please remember that you continuously, well... continuing where I might have otherwise crumpled is a definite motivator for those who don't have to deal with the same things that do you.

I urge you to remember that as much as your are here for us, we are here for you and will continue to be so emotionally. I may not be a real life friend, but I always appreciate hearing your story
