Ah, that's better. :)
Thank you to everyone who weighed in so positively about the situation I posted about in my last blog. I really appreciated your advice! I have also run the situation by some other friends, and they agree that the critics are being ridiculous fo... Read more
People tire me out sometimes.
Nothing anyone here has done. I made a post somewhere else, asking about two different cleaning-related issues, and a few people jumped to a whole crapload of conclusions about me, my husband, and our relationship based on that post and a few ot... Read more
I'm not sure the Adderall is really a good idea, but I'm willing to give it a bit longer. I had a lot of trouble with distractions in the morning, and then for whatever reason the dinner didn't work out quite right, which made me cry in the end.... Read more
Okay, going to try again tomorrow. And, of course, 100 Days Challenge update (day 4).
I'm going to try the Adderall again tomorrow. Since my brother was sick for two days before we came, and since J had a bit of indigestion today as well, some of my troubles yesterday could have been due to a 24-hour version of whatever it was my... Read more
Experiment is over. Also, Day 3 of REVOLUTION 100 Days Challenge.
I am calling an end to my meds experiment. Today was just horrible. I couldn't change activities when I wanted to (something the meds are supposed to help with), I didn't get hungry and ignored my snack alarms so I didn't eat enough, and I curre... Read more
The weekend, my experiment, and a new challenge!
This weekend was good, though it got off to a rocky start.
Thursday night, I smashed the transmission pan on my car, so I had to take the truck babysitting. On the way there, the truck started overheating. It took me three hours to get home... Read more
The Saga of the Bird in the House (wrote this yesterday but didn't get to post here)
This afternoon, I was trying to get some housework done. (I should have been editing a report, but that's beside the point.) I ran the dryer and folded all the clean, dry clothes into my laundry basket, and brought the full basket upstairs (I ra... Read more
Fun with truck hitches
Nothing about my health today (though I'm doing well off the Adderall so far; will write about that tomorrow, I'm sure). Instead, I bring you...
THE SAGA OF OUR TRUCK HITCH
We live on an acreage and have no well (yet). We use a cistern... Read more
Trying something a little different...
This isn't so much about Spark and exercise as it is about my mental health.
I concluded, after another really useless day yesterday, that it's the Adderall that's causing me so many problems. It could also be my carb intake, but I'm not to... Read more
Wednesday and Thursday were not great days at all. I didn't eat right on either day, and on Wednesday my anxiety immobilized me to the point that I quite literally did nothing all day except play with a new file I created in Excel and play card ... Read more
Eventually my brain will be full, yes?
I keep learning new things. Like today, I learned that if I keep putting off going for my run, I won't get to go because by the time I "have time" it will be too close to sundown to be safe to go for a run down a deserted country road.
That... Read more
I am NOT a farmer.
Not yet, anyway.
Yesterday I hauled water from the house (the tap outside) across the parking area to where J is planting the hedge, so I could water them. I got positively SOAKED, I worked up quite a sweat, and my frustration levels were k... Read more
Okay, first, I haven't tracked my snacking yesterday or today. It's been bad, I can tell you that for sure, and I can guarantee you that my calories were well over the 800-something on my nutrition tracker for both days.
But today I woke up... Read more
Apparently my side was the wrong side this morning. I have been cranky and irritable all day.
Though that could be because my neck has been bugging me again today, and my jaw definitely feels weird.
I didn't eat right, either - I seem ... Read more
I figure slow progress is still progress, right? Right.
Well, my slow progress is visible in my kitchen. Every day I do a full drainer of dishes and leave them to dry. Every day I put away the clean dry dishes when I get up in the morning. ... Read more
