Today has been a busy day. A happy, productive kind of busy.
Got chores, laundry (including the bedding), and some homemade freezer meals completed. The laundry is currently air drying and so folding will be a task two days from now. The chores had been needing done for weeks and I finally buckled down and took care of them...and the house sparkles by comparison now. :). Pretty!
I got more cooking done today than I planned on doing, so I've got a bit more variety in my freezer meals thn expected. Although I'm so proud of myself for actually following through with my plans to cook and clean today that I almost don't want to eat the food and lose my reminder....lol!
Took care of my half oft eh property taxes today and then went out to buffet. Surprisingly ate a normal amount (only one plate and about a third of it veggies) despite starving. It always surprises me when I catch myself doing something "normal" out of habi that I wouldn't have done a year or two ago. (I guess that's part of growing up?). :)
Oh, and with regards to my previous post on finding the magic in the day...I.ve found that if as I'm falling asleep the night before or waking up the day of, and I take a moment to figure out what my priorities are for the day and what two or three things I need to do to make myself feel happy or successful (and actively reclaim the magic), it's a lot easier to wake up with a pep in my step and make magic happen. (Is what I said clear? Does it make sense to someone other than me?). Basically I'm finding that if I take just a minute or two to plan to make myself happy, I find it easier to follow through and actually be happy, and I find it easier to deal with set backs...because I'm not looking for any standard of perfection. Kinda like uofigirl said (I'm paraphrasing) stop and smell the roses, relax.
Oh, and using the advice of 1stateofdenial, I've been using a "medication reminder" app and on days that I would have forgotten, it's so far been enough to trigger my memory. So I'm taking the vit D and thyroid pills no prob. Unfortunately, the multivitamin I like to take, because it's organic will be unavailable until at least early February. However since it's he only multi I've been able to take without chucking it back up, I guess I'll just have to wait patiently. (Tap,tap. Tap). ;)
Anyway, I hope you all have had at least one good day in the past nine since I last posted. And I'm sincerely hoping you all will finder greater health and happiness in the days to come. Sparkies! (That sounds a bit awkward?)
