It was a fairly productive day yesterday. I got some cleaning and laundry done. I worked on the altar and the Who to Call List. I stopped at the store and got something to make for dinner for Tim.

I did get some sad news. Betsy King is going into Hospice Care, which means the end is near. I knew that it was coming soon, but I still didn't expect it. When she first got her diagnosis, the doctor was so sure he got everything. So much for what doctors know sometimes. Other than the Davis', she was the first to become a friend in Alabama. I miss her already. She will truly be missed when she's gone.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I was busy yesterday doing laundry, sorting Avon, helping the secretary, going to get ashes, helping mom and going to the store. Today I just have to help with the altar. It shouldn't take too long. I have to go back to church in the morning to get the bulletins printed. It took the secretary longer this week to get things done. I'm beginning to question if she's going to work out. I told her that I was going to sit back and let her print everything tomorrow. We'll see how she does.

I actually had a quiet day yesterday and it was nice. I did have a medical test early and stopped at the bank for Sherry. It was hard for me to get up and I was about five minutes late for the appointment. I came home and did some laundry and house work. I took the rest of the classes for church. It's only taken me a year to do them. I worked on the scarf a bit. I'm almost done with it and want to get it done so I can send it before winter is over. I was thinking about it and figure I should wrap Sherry's birthday presents and send them with it. I hate how it costs so much to send stuff but want her to have things to open. I just wish I could buy her more.

I spent some time helping Sharon at church yesterday. She's still a little unsure of herself and a little unorganized. She forgot to do the music the week before. Will have to keep an eye on her and see how it goes.

I stopped at the library to renew my card only to find out that the computer goofed when sending out the notices. At least I got the info on the Detroit taxes and got mine done. Now all I have to do is Antonio's.

I had trouble falling and staying asleep last night. Tim was talkative. I took half a sleeping pill about 10:45 and am definitely sluggish this morning. But I have to be to the ENT doctor at 9:30 so I must get the lead out. I've been doing my exercises lately in the afternoon. But at least I am getting them done. Trying to get in 5 miles on the bike. Ive been pulling the multi-tasking thing and reading while I'm on the bike. I finished a couple books that I will send Sherry as soon as I get the scarf done. I'm almost done with it. I really need to kick it out so Daryl gets it before winter is over.

Busy day yesterday. A couple people didn't show up for their assignments at church. I had to quickly find replacements. I have instructions for next week's collection. I went to the movies with Barb. Another strange movie about someone one medications....I guess I'm over sensitive about them. I just didn't enjoy it. I didn't sleep that well and woke up with a sore throat. Lovely. Not a good time to get a cold. Haven't had one in a few years. Yuk!

Dave was able to help me update the who to call list. I am grateful that he is so involved with the every day workings of the church and knows a lot of the answers.

I was able to to Antonio's taxes really easily yesterday. It did remind me that I need to go to the library and renew my card and see if it has any Detroit income tax papers.

I thought I had a dentist appointment yesterday. I got there and found out that I was a month early. Oh, well, it got me moving early.

Got a bit of walking in yesterday, which was good and I spent some time doing stuff with Tim. I was glad for that. Sometimes we're just both here doing our own thing.

I worry about remembering all that I need to remember. I am going to have to start making my daily lists again and checking the stuff off as I do it.

I was busy again all day yesterday doing paperwork and housework. At least I got some walking and cycling in. I found out I should have updated a name on the who to call list and this morning I found out I had a typo on Sharon's email address. I've got Marlene checking into the correct name on the list and have already sent out an email on Sharon's email address. I am definitely learning as I go. I got Tina's minutes from the meeting and was glad that she took such good notes. I need to email and tell her so. I will start working on the vestry meeting layout for next month sometime this week. I also have four more classes online that I have to take. I will feel better when I get a system going.

Busy busy yesterday. Hoping today will be more laid back, especially since we got about 4 inches of snow last night. I am so glad it started after I went to bed. I had a doctor appointment first off and gained another half pound. I am perplexed. I have been riding the exercise bike the last week and a half hoping that would help. It probably did, but just not as much as I had expected. I know that I am more sedentary doing paperwork. Gotta get into a routine where I can be more active.

Met with Judy and got a lesson on doing the altar. I couldn't believe only 3 people in the whole church did it.

I did two loads of laundry. I took Barb to get her car. I stopped at Walgreen's and got my prescription.

I made it through the vestry meeting. They mentioned that I seemed very prepared which made me feel better. I think it was a productive meeting and it only lasted until almost 8:30. I was home by nine.

Tim was wound up when I got home. I just wanted peace and quiet, but what's a girl to do. I think he had been worried about Sadie and was glad to find out that she just has an infection.

It was a crazy busy day yesterday. I started off by helping the church secretary do the bulletins for church. She didn't remember a few of the things although she had done two weeks worth. I am hoping she will remember more next week. I made some copies for the vestry meeting and ended up getting a paper jam. We had some guy come to the door asking for money. She told him the right thing, but thinking about it afterward, we could have probably handled it better. When I finally got home, I was going to do my exercises. I got a call from Barb saying she needed a ride home from taking her car in. Then she needed to go to CVS. Then she needed me to help her with her hair. Got home from that to find a letter from DHS. They want verification of my rent payments. I have old records saying that I am renting from Sherry and old condo dues coupons. Luckily I have the last check that I wrote Sherry and the deposit slip. It asked for Sherry's address and signature. I had to put Sarah's address down and told them it would be awhile before I could get Sherry's signature. I hope it works. Needless to say, I didn't get to my exercises yesterday and feel funny about missing them. It was just that kind of day.

I may have to re-do the agenda today before the meeting. We'll see how the day goes. I've got a doctor appointment and I'm supposed to help set up the altar at church. Oh, boy!

I had a good talk with Sherry. She said no wonder I was so busy and crazy and stressed with all the doctor appointments and things for church that I'm doing. She said that there would be no way that I'd be able to keep a job right now and she's right. I worried about being forgetful and she assured me that I was not, which made me feel better. She said she talked to my mom who asked the same questions a couple of times. This is the first time she's really heard it from my mom and I think it made her a little sad. I know I stopped by the other day and she was having trouble moving.

I've got to make a schedule for myself. X amount of time on the computer, x amount of time going over and helping mom, x amount of time for church, x amount of time for Tim. I can do this! Friday should be an open day. I know I will organize Vestry notes a little and probably stop to check in on the secretary. But other than that, I should have time. I want to put something on the computer that I can put into a calendar. I can do this!

I was two hours at the doctor's office yesterday. I found out that I have arthritis in my back. There are shots that I will be taking to see if they help. I am grateful that I don't have to have surgery.

Other than that, it was an uneventful day. I did pick up some stuff for my mom. She seemed to be struggling with her leg and it has me worried. I need to check up on her more.

Made it through my first church services giving announcements. I got some information from Barb and am feeling a little better about the vestry. I haven't heard from 5 of the members so I don't know how many are coming to the meeting. So, I will have to call them. More work and worries. My stomach is still not the best. My back acted up last night. I ended up taking a muscle relaxer and slept in a little this morning. I'm a little nervous about what the orthopedic doctor is going to say today. My internet didn't work when I did get up, so that set me back a half hour.

I can't believe how much my life has changed this past year. A year ago, I was still searching for work every day. That took up so much of my time and was such a worry. Now I'm involved heavily in the church and can't believe how much time that is taking up. But I think I am going to like this better.

I finished my taxes and had Tim look at Alicia's. My stomach was so upset from the stress that I passed on going to Lisa's. If I don't get a handle on things, I'm going to end up with an ulcer.

I somehow lost a paper I had re-done for vestry - aggravating. I think I am a little more organized. I slept better last night and feel like I have a little more energy this morning. Barb wants me to take her to the movies to watch one that I really don't want to see. We're supposed to get 1-2" of snow today. She was razzing me because it took me a minute to find the times for the movie. She doesn't have a clue how to use a computer and it aggravates the heck out of me when she puts me down. Shouldn't let it get to me but it's easy this week because of the stress I have placed myself under.

Stressful day yesterday. Found mistakes in the paperwork that I printed for vestry. Had to print one twice. I had no luck with Alicia's taxes. I have no clue what the lady last year did. I hate to give up, but may have to. I feel like I will be disappointing her.

I am still busy with paperwork for church and Alicia's taxes. I had to go into church today to help with the bulletins. The weather got bad while I was there and it was hard to get home. Now to start on paperwork...

I had another busy day that didn't look like I accomplished much. I did take about five things of garbage out, so that makes it look like I did do something. I'm getting there on getting ready for the vestry meeting. I still want to touch base with Barb and see if what I am doing is right. Hoping she can spend a minute with me on Sunday. I'm already having anxiety attacks. Tim says don't worry. I don't think he understands the importance of it. I am hoping that after the first Sunday and the first meeting, I will feel better.

I have to sort Avon today. Hoping it's my last sorting. I am just not into it anymore.

I was busy all day yesterday but can't say I accomplished anything. I did some re-writing of a vestry paper in the morning. I had my therapy appointment. I stopped at Wal Mart and got a mouth guard, a walking video and some file folders to help me get organized. I then went to church and we interviewed people for the secretary position. I got home a little after 6 and finished the one vestry paper and screwed up my stapler. Good thing Tim had one so I don't have to buy another one. I'm feeling a little guilty about buying what I did, but...the walking video will hopefully help me get some of this weight off, the mouth guard was $1.50 and I do need to organize my paperwork. I've got some in big and little totes and some in the book case and some in a file. I am just feeling the need to get them organized. I'm wondering how long it will take me to do it. As it was, I had those books from the library sitting on the table way too long. I finally returned them yesterday. Oh, and I also sent Danielle's present to her. Tim says she probably won't appreciate it and Barb says I won't get a thank you, but I still felt the need to make the afghan and send it. I made one for her when she was born. I wonder if Shannon will even mention it to her. I'm not worried about it though.

I am Senior Warden on the Vestry by default. I am in a little bit of panic mode as I am trying to get ready for the first meeting. I know I will probably try to meet with Barb once before the meeting before hand to make sure that I've got all the bases covered.

I stopped at Wal Mart and got some things to get my paperwork organized. I'm not sure when I'll get to all of it with trying to get ready for the vestry, but I hope to at least get started this week.

It took me a few hours, but I finished the afghan for Danielle. Now I just need to stop at Wal Mart and get a box to ship it in along with a card. I started to pick up the scarf for Daryl and found out that it somehow got screwed up. I had to take out quite a few rows and tie the yarn together. Not sure how that happened. I got the old pictures in an album also. Two things done from my want to do list. But I didn't do much else yesterday. Other than the scarf, it wasn't a stressful day. So that was good.

I felt like I accomplished a little more yesterday. I went through a tub in the closet and know that I have to work on the pictures that are in there. I still want a file cabinet but that may have to wait awhile. There are many papers that I'd love to put in one to get them out of the way and organized. I figure it will run about $60 to buy a two-drawer cabinet and the hanging files. But it would make the bedroom so much more organized....I'm hoping it will give me a little more room in there, too.

I finally decided I had looked at those library books long enough and went through the last one. I typed up the notes from it that I wanted. Now I can return them today and get them off my table.

I worked on Danielle's afghan for at least an hour. It's getting there and shouldn't take but a couple more days to get it done. I realize now that I will more than likely have yarn left over. I would like to buy another tote for the closet to put all the yarn in. But I may have to make sure to get rid of at least one of those TVs to do that. At least I know that Harry can use them. It's just a matter of getting Tim and a friend to take it over to him. I will ask Tim about that today when he gets home from work.

Tim finally told me that he has to get the hernia operation. He thinks he'll only be off four weeks. I'm thinking more like six. At least his work says he can claim workman's comp so we will have some money coming in.

I have to start working on taxes. I will feel better knowing that's done. I am still debating whether or not to claim the little bit of Avon that I earned. I realize that I will only be able to claim through August, but having a home office may be well worth it. It was so much more worth it when I had people under me and was getting $25 checks from their first four orders. The people that have expressed a desire to sell under me have fallen through the cracks. I did have one girl signed up. She even came to a sales meeting. But I never got a check. I don't think she ever put an order in. Another girl gave me a non-existent address. Now she wants me to come to Dearborn to sign her up. Not going to happen. Another girl was such a weirdo. She first told me she didn't have her driver's license. Then she told me it said she was deceased. When I told her that it had to be current she got mad at me, told me deceased was written in marker, and hung up on me. I just don't have the desire to sell that I once did. It's beginning to be a pain in the butt.

Organizing that closet and getting rid of some of the Avon stuff would make me feel like I've accomplished so much. I am looking forward to doing it.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I am still spending too much time playing games on the computer. Hoping I will be better today.

The printing of the bulletins went fairly smoothly. The refrigerator page printed too small at first and it took me a minute to figure it out, but I did.

Life Cycles went well but lasted a little longer than I anticipated.

Tim says I'm still a little out of it when I take the medicine although it's not quite as bad. But then he tells me to get off it slowly. I'm really confused as to whether or not to take it. I definitely had trouble with sleeping and anxiety on the couple days I didn't take it. Am I doomed to a life of taking them forever?

I got a little bit accomplished yesterday, but I still spent way too much time on the computer. Gotta stop that! I took my prescription in to get it refilled. She said it would be an hour and a half. I went back and the other girl said that I didn't have any prescriptions to be picked up. I told her that I had just dropped it off. Because I got four pills the week before, they hadn't even started getting it ready. I could feel myself getting anxious as I stood there. I know it's small and it shouldn't have gotten to me, but it did.

I slept pretty good last night. I was having a good dream and woke up in the middle of it. I hate that. I'd love to be able to go back to sleep and pick it up where I left off.

I had a bad day yesterday. I did mom's hair in the morning. She asked me to start her car and I couldn't get the door open. Harry came down and got it right open. Go figure.

I had an appointment with the new doctor. He did me no good at all. He gave me a prescription that he said was both for depression and to help me sleep. When I questioned him he told me that there were other doctors I could see. When I asked about the ADD medicine, he told me I would just have to get it from another doctor.

I had an appointment with the ENT doctor that took forever. Really didn't tell me much other than I have major TMJ issues and a crooked tongue. I have to go to a neurologist and go back for another test.

I did go late to my old psychiatrist appointment. That went a little better. He gave me prescriptions for lower doses of everything and I will go back in one month.

I am in a quandary as to what to do with this medicine issue. What I've been told and what I read says I have to go off gradually. The new doctor says I can be off it now and that there's no side effects. What do it do?

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I picked up Barb from the auto place and took her to the Salvation Army. It was snowing like crazy and the roads were slick. Didn't quite make a turn and she commented on how I didn't know how to drive in the snow. Duh! I had no desire to look through clothes as she took her time looking. I don't like this feeling of having no desire to do anything.

I didn't go to my therapy appointment. Didn't feel like it and made the excuse that my car wouldn't start. She's not really been helping me and I didn't see the point. I did go to the funeral home for Barb Cook's mother. She seemed pleasantly surprised that I took the time to go.

It's been bitter cold yesterday and today. It's zero right now with a wind chill of -12. I have to go take Mom to get her hair cut then dye her hair this morning. Then I have 3 doctor appointments this afternoon, first with the new psychiatrist to discuss an antidepressant. The one he gave me I honestly only took one day and it made me way too tired. They told me to keep taking it and give it a try, but I couldn't. Don't know if I really should be taking something or not. I don't know if my lack of energy and desire is a result of the weather, the fact that I'm weaning off the old medicines or what. Then I go to the ENT doctor. Then I have an appointment with the old psychiatrist. Don't know what the insurance company is going to say, but guess I will find out. I'm anxious to see if he will lower the dosage in any of the medicines. This will be the last time I see him, I presume.

I hate getting off medicines and hate the side effects even more. With what I read, I heard it was hard. But I also heard that I should be okay in a couple weeks. I hope so.


God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Didn't do much to speak of yesterday either. I did stop at the grocery store and Michael's to get some yarn to make Danielle an afghan. Got it going pretty good. Was watching Law & Order marathon where many of the people had mental issues. It really made me paranoid about getting off these medicines. I slept lousy. I was hot then cold. I'm freezing during the day. I have to call the psychiatrist and make an appointment for this week. I don't know if I really need to be on an antidepressant while getting off or not. And I only took the one he gave me one night;. It made me too tired. Too many questions and too little energy. Not good.

I had a really lazy day yesterday. Only did some of my exercises and a little housework. Was on the computer way too long. Did take a walk with Tim and looked at the file cabinet that Sherry has. She's got it pretty full. So now I have to decide if I want to buy one or not. I really feel that I will be a little more organized with my papers but I really hate to spend the money. I will have to think about that one.

I must go to the grocery store today. And I have to stop at Michael's and get some baby yarn to make an afghan for Danielle. I forgot to save the envelope with her address on it, so I will have to get it from Barb or Shannon. Kicking myself for that one.

I got some things done yesterday that I had been putting off. I got my Bible reading done and my Avon done. I tried to deliver the last two orders. One had a disconnected phone and the other one, the girl had completely forgotten she ordered it. So, I did a return on it all and will take the box to the UPS Store today or Monday.

I am hoping that I will get some organizing done today. Will see how it goes. I couldn't get moving this morning, so I don't know how ambitious I will be.

I decided to write in my journal how I am feeling while trying to get off these medicines. I know I absolutely hated how I felt on the new antidepressant. I was way too tired and out of it just taking one pill. The doctor's office wanted me to keep taking it and see how I do in a week. I stopped and will call them Monday and make an appointment to get something else.

I haven't been sleeping well, but I expected that. I took a sleeping pill after I laid there for awhile last night. I know this is not a solution and I really don't want to get dependent on them. I will continue to try to sleep on my own. But I know I need my sleep...this one could be a vicious cycle for awhile.

I realize that my time management isn't very good right now. Gotta work on that especially since the doctor wants me off of the Adderall. Gotta get more organized. At least I know I have a mission in the next few weeks.

It's nice not feeling so out of it at night. I'm not feeling like I have a lot of anxiety or mood swings, so that's a good sign. I will watch myself and re-evaluate this in the coming week.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I actually had some energy yesterday. It was good to have some. I cleaned Sam's house and came home and did a little cleaning here. I had to help Mom find her phone. We looked everywhere in the house. We finally found it in the garbage. She was grateful to find it and angry at herself for losing it. I did a little reading. I really need to do some more today. I want to finish the ADD book and have to read a Bible book by Tuesday. I just haven't penciled in the time. Another one of those ADD characteristics - wanting to do something but procrastinating. I have to be more aware of what I do or don't do and plan some form of attack. Otherwise, it will definitely be very hard to not be on the medicine. If I'm like this with the medicine, how bad is it going to be without it?

It was a quiet day yesterday. I really didn't get moving until late. The new medicine made me really tired. I tried to talk to the doctor's office about switching it. He wants me to try to get used to it. I didn't take it last night. I will call back today and make an appointment for next week. I have to remind them to return the call to the pharnacy anyway because there is no such think as 30 mg Geodon.

The Avon order was actually correct. That really surprised me. There is one thing on back order, however - the ring that Mom's friend ordered. I am getting burnt out on Avon. I think I will start putting any orders I get through Paulette. I have to talk to her, though.

Got some of the orders delivered last night and got my hair cut. Other than that, I didn't accomplish anything. Gotta start being a little more ambitious and not sit at the computer all day.

I waited forever for my doctor appointment yesterday. When I finally saw him, the first thing he said was that my meds were wrong for me. Hooray! But he put me on an antidepressant that made me incredibly tired this morning. I must call and get that changed pronto. I have too much to do every day.

It was another frustrating, stressful day yesterday. I went to the therapist appointment only to be told that I had a $227.00 balance. They told me that they didn't accept Medicaid. Knowing that the person who made the appointment told me they did, I was quite angry. I left messages when I got home with the ombudsman but never got a phone call back. The people in the therapy office made phone calls and got it straightened out, thank goodness. I have a call in to the insurance company. They are supposed to get back with me about who in this area takes the insurance. I'm not really happy with the therapist. It was my third appointment and she finally started talking with me as opposed to filling out paperwork - after about a half hour into the appointment. I only have two more sessions with her and then am supposed to have "group therapy" - whatever that entails. I don't see how that will help me at this point in time. I do have an appointment with the doctor today and am hoping at least he will give me lower doses of my medicine. This will definitely tell me a lot about the place.

I have a call in to the place I was going to and haven't gotten a call back yet. I will run out of my medicine before my appointment with the doctor and really want to move the appointment up. But, like I said, no call back yet.

I tried to call Michigan Bridges to find out when the money goes on the Bridge card. I got a recorded loop that would only tell me what my current balance is. It said that if I had any questions to go online. When I went online, it told me I didn't exist in the system. Of course, I got my caseworker's voice mail. I really doubt if she calls me back. So I went all the way to the DHS office only to be scoffed at because she didn't think I called the number on the card. At least I found out that the money goes on the card on the 15th of the month. I still don't know how to correct going on line to find information out.

Then when I got home, I had a letter from DHS. The IRS reported that I got $100 interest income from Chase Bank in 2011 and that I would be getting a call from them. This is the $100 that the bank offered if you opened an account for x amount of months. I'm not sure what to tell them on this one. I guess I need to go to Chase Bank and see what kind of information they can give me. I will tell them the truth - that it was an offer if an account was opened. I'll tell them my daughter used the account and I gave her the money for rent, which I did.

This year is only two weeks old and I've had nothing but stress for the whole two weeks. Not a good way to start the year. I keep remembering what Justine told me when I went for a reading - that I would be getting a job that starts out part time. I don't know how accurate she is. Am I going to have to start working again? Or maybe is it the part time work that I am doing for the church? I really need to find the tape and listen to it. Maybe I'll call her and ask some questions.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I talked to Ray before I went to church yesterday morning and it was actually a nice talk. I got a couple book titles to read from him and his other phone number. I copied the titles onto another paper and realized this morning that I threw away the phone number. I will have to call and get it from him again. He doesn't always carry the business number and there might be some times when I need to contact him.

This is a reminder to me that I need to read the books on ADD that I wrote down. I know the doctor wants to decrease my ADD medicine against my better judgement and I want to have some resources on how to concentrate better.

With me not doing all that much, I realize that my concentration is not what it should be and it does bother me. So I will go to the library and get some books out. I see the therapist today and just maybe she will be helpful today and give me some information or possibly a support group. I don't have high hopes with this one, but just maybe...

Yesterday was definitely a regroup day. Took the dog for a nice walk outside. Went to bed early and slept okay.

I've been busy this morning with church and grocery shopping. Spent more than I intended, but was able to save in doing so. I did splurge on myself and bought a wreath. It's a cranberry wreath that was originally marked $19.99 and was in with the Christmas stuff at Rite Aid for 75% off, so I got it for $4.99/ Looks good on the door.

Now to do stuff on the computer that I didn't do this morning...

It was a bad day yesterday. Ray had me in such knots that I had an anxiety attack in the lawyer's office. It was a long day. I finally got hone about 6:30 and poured myself a glass of wine. I hated to talk about it and felt sorry for anyone who had to listen to me.

It was a gorgeous day outside and I hardly had the chance to enjoy it. (A couple walks in it will have to suffice.) It will be another gorgeous day today. I'm hoping to take the dog out and enjoy it. Get some fresh air and exercise...

I gained another three pounds when I went to the doctor. I told her how unhappy I was because I haven't eaten any differently. She ordered up some bloodwork to see if my thyroid might be off. She gave the go ahead to stop physical therapy and ordered up a MRI. Then I get to go to an orthopedic doctor. She also gave me the number to a psychiatrist. I left a message but haven't heard back yet. Meanwhile, I have a therapist appointment on Monday. I am hoping this one goes a little better than the first two. All she did the first two times was ask questions to input stuff into the computer and put words in my mouth. I tried to call the first therapist to schedule an appointment but ended up leaving a message for her. My luck, they will call back when I am in court today.

I am not happy with Ray right now. I don't like to be threatened. He won't cooperate and meet ahead of time to get everything in legal terms. He wanted it all written up and sent to him for review by last night. I meet with Shelley a couple hours before court and can hopefully get it written okay for him before we have to be at court. I can't help but wonder how long Ray will hold this stuff over my head. In one breath, he tells me he's out for my best interest and in the next breath he's threatening me with prosecution over joint accounts. But that's Ray = always looking out for number one and not looking at other people's points of view. I can't wait for today to be over.

It finally dawned on Tim how nervous I am about the court date tomorrow. I can picture Ray and Shelley getting into it and then Ray will go through with his threat with me and go through with the charges. I've got to get a message to her today.

It's another long and busy day today. It starts with an 8:30 doctor appointment in which I can hopefully get some medications straightened out a little bit. It will end with a Life Cycle session that will last until 9, so I won't be home until 9:30. Then tomorrow is another busy day. I look forward to this week ending.

I woke up so tired this morning. Gotta get moving. I actually have a little time this morning to get caught up on some things. I'm just trying to remember what things there are that I'm supposed to be doing. I wrote a couple things down. There were others that I thought of yesterday that I didn't write down. For the life of me, I can't remember what they are. It drives me crazy when I do that.

My second busy day of the week is done. I slept better last night but I think that's because I broke down and took a sleeping pill. Now I've got my third busy day ahead of me today and am already realizing I'm not going to get done what I wanted to get done. I wanted to go to the class at church this morning. But I know that I have to get gas, go to the grocery store and go to the bank for Sherry all before noon, along with my exercises and cleaning up.

It seems that whenever I plan to do something for me, other things tend to get in the way. Like I was supposed to go to dinner with the ladies from the church tonight, but mom mentioned that today was the day she planned to go to the casino. So...I guess I will just have to wait until next year. I really feel the need right now to get more involved with church and it seems that things always get in the way. Just maybe if I kick butt I can make it to the class at 10. But I'm not going to hold my breath. We'll see.

Stressful day yesterday trying to research medicines and then Ray called wanting an answer. I couldn't fall asleep yesterday night. Ended up taking a sleeping pill about 2, so I had a hard time waking up. Now I'm running late on this busy day.

I had a nice day overall yesterday. There were a couple uncomfortable moments, but I dealt with them.

Barb and I went to the movies to see "Silver Lining". A couple of the characters were having emotional issues and were talking about the different medications that the doctors put them on and how they hated them. I couldn't help but squirm at this as I recognized most of the medications and know all too well the side effects. I know what it's like to want to get off them and have doctors who tell me to keep taking them. It made me think about whether or not I need to still be on them. Do I act like that? Did I act like that? Well, I know I did at one point and it makes me feel bad for those that I love that had to live through that. I really hope that I am at the point where I don't need them anymore. I am glad that I am being proactive and have taken it upon myself to investigate what I am taking. I am glad that I had the courage to cut the one dosage in half. Tim does say that he sees a difference in me and that he's glad I'm doing it. Now to start skipping days, Then I can completely get off of them. I know that my early morning sleeplessness is probably a direct effect of cutting down. I really want to believe that this will regulate itself. I know that if I ever feel that I am going through an anxious time, I can always take one and get a good night's sleep. I'd rather not, but know the option is there.

I've been going to physical therapy for my back. Even the therapists mentioned how tight my muscles were in my back. It occurred to me that I have muscle relaxants. So I took one for a couple nights. The combination of the two seem to have helped my back. So, there are times when medications can be a wonderful thing.

Tim and I went to Applebee's for dinner. We got a gift card from Sarah and Randy for Christmas. We didn't get to go out on my birthday, so we decided to go yesterday when we knew we could take our time and enjoy the evening. We were almost done eating when my phone rang. It was Ray. I just looked at Tim and said that I wasn't going to answer the phone at that time. I didn't want anything he had to say ruin the evening. But the call was still disconcerting.

He left a message. I put off listening to it. When I finally did listen to it, he was just asking if my lawyer and I had talking about the offer that he had emailed all of us the other day. It's the holidays - I haven't been able to talk to Shelley yet. He's getting anxious. I think he is starting to realize that it could go very wrong for him if this goes to court. He's trying to be very nice to me. He forgets that I know him well now. Yes, he can be very nice and helpful to people when it suits him. I fell for that side of him without knowing the full person. He is trying in his own way to be fair to me. He just doesn't get or doesn't want to get what he put me through and what exactly it is that I am entitled to.

But, I am not going to let Ray get to me anymore. I have to let it go. This is the reason that I did have so many emotional problems. I internalized it all and took everything personal. I let him beat me down and I know that I won't let him or anyone else do that anymore. The years of therapy and trying to get better has shown me that I don't need to let anyone do that to me.

I am uncomfortable with my new therapist. I've only seen her twice and she just kinda hurried through the sessions asking me questions to put the answers in her computer. She was trying to put in her own words what my issues were and where I wanted to go. I agree with her in the fact that I want to be more assertive. But she completely missed the boat when I told her I wanted off of the nighttime medications that I'm on. She thought that I just felt like I had no energy when I took them. I had to tell her that if there was a fire when I first take the medications that I would be in trouble. I'm still not sure she understood. She was in a hurry the last time I saw her. It was New Year's Eve and she wanted to go home. I will have to make some phone calls Monday and see what I can come up with. Maybe I can go back to the other therapist that I saw when Sherry was in town. I can use my Blue Cross Insurance. I got a good feeling from her. There's always the one that I have been seeing, but I think she's not really doing anything for me. She talks about her family more than she talks to me and what my goals are.

Definite ramble today. Sometimes I just need to do that. I think the movie really hit home worse that I originally thought.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I woke up yesterday and today tired. I am ready to go lay back on the couch like I did yesterday. But it gave me a late start yesterday and I really have things I'd like to do today.

I went to Macomb Mall yesterday. I returned the blouse I bought Mom and found another one for her. I went into Victoria's Secret and used the whole gift card I had plus $5.03. But I came home with 5 pairs of underwear, 2 bras and some lip gloss. It was a great gift from Sarah. I got one of Sherry's gifts. It's a fan for my new computer. Very cool!

I am hoping to get some Avon delivered today and to go to the bank. I need to do some house work. Maybe tonight Tim and I will go to Applebee's for dinner and use the gift card that we got for Christmas. I can tell Sarah's been too busy - she gave a lot of gift cards. I wish she wouldn't work so hard.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

It was a busy day yesterday. I helped mom, went to therapy, did some Avon returns, went to a vestry meeting. No time to sit and play on the computer like the day before. Today will be a little busy, but I should have a little more time to myself. Sarah sent me a Victoria's Secret gift card for $75. I have to take mom's shirt back to Sears today, so I will probably stop in the store and see what catches my eye. Should be fun. Got housework I want to do today. I did take a muscle relaxer last night for my back. So I was tired this morning and got a later start than anticipated. So I am off to catch up.

I got a lot of well wishes yesterday, which was nice. Barb didn't call me because I didn't call her on her birthday. I had just been over 2 days before and gave her the card and present and told her to have a happy birthday. Now I know better.

I spent entirely too much time on the computer playing spider solitaire. I need to be more active today. I've gained a few pounds and am determined to get at least some of them off. I joined the January Jumpstart Challenge and am determined to do it. An extra 10 minutes of exercise and cardio 5 times a week is not unrealistic.

Can't say I accomplished much of anything yesterday. I even forgot to watch the Rose Parade. I did go through a couple folders and got rid of some papers. I went to the Salvation Army and looked through the clothes. They were all half off. I got a pair of pants and 4 shirts for $6.32. Not bad. I washed the clothes when I got home. I am hoping today will be a little more productive.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

It was not an exciting New Year's Eve. I had a therapy session that accomplished nothing. I did go through my paid bills container and put them in the appropriate columns for tax purposes and got that cleaned out for the new year. We fell asleep early - didn't make it to midnight.

I am looking forward to the new year. I want to eat healthier - cut down on the frozen dinners and make more fresh healthy meals, eat more veggies and fruit and work on my water more. I want to improve my exercise habits - change things around, start walking more like I was, maybe take an exercise class. I want to nurture my creative side - learn something new, do new projects. One thing I want to do is knit a blanket for Sherry and Daryl. It will be a lot of work to get it done before Christmas - I think it took me over a year to do mine, but I really want to give it a try. I've got big ideas. Now to put them in action.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I had trouble with my Reynaud's Syndrome all day yesterday. I couldn't do anything with my right hand. So, the day was spent trying to warm up - not productive at all. I did get things off my old computers. That's about it. I am hoping today will be more productive. I know there are things I want to put into my SP notebook. I want to work on my goals for the new year.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I took down the Christmas decorations yesterday. The place always looks naked when I do that. But, I am always determined to not do it on my birthday.

The Avon order came in. Of course, I'm missing stuff that they said they sent, I got stuff that they said was out of stock, and there's out of stock stuff on all my orders. Granted some will come in two weeks, some will come in four weeks, but it's aggravating. I've got one order for campaign two. If I don't get any more, I will call Paulette and add it to her order. I've reached my tolerance level and just don't want to be bothered. It's to the point where it's costing me money to continue, with the cost of books, gas, etc. and not to mention my time.

We went to Dave & Busters last night. It was the first time I was there. It was an expensive evening but fun. I ended up spraining my thumb on a bowling game right at the end, though. Bummer. But now I can say that I've been there and that we actually did something while Tim had the time off during the holidays. It had been awhile since we actually went out and did something. It's actually been awhile since we even got a movie and watched it. At least with the holidays, I can say that we watched some good holiday movies that were on TV.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

It's snowing again. I hate this weather.

Tim had the week off and we really didn't do much of anything besides go get the new computer. I'm hoping today to go to Dave & Buster's. To do something, especially something I've never done before, would be nice.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.
