Today is the first day of the rest of my life

This is a mantra I'm trying so hard to live by. What happened yesterday is over and done with and cannot be changed. What will happen tomorrow is still a dream. But today... today is what I can make happen.
As I blogged yesterday, I felt horrid and didn't get too much done. Thanks to Nyquil, I got a bit more sleep. I'm still coughing (a LOT) but at least I feel like I have a bit of energy. After I dropped my boys off at PDO, I decided that I needed to get a few things done. I'm hoping to have maintenance come by to fix a few things, so I made sure to straighten up a bit. The living room and kitchen aren't something that I'm ashamed to have anyone go into at the moment. (Which pleases me to no end!) I got my new coffee pot set up (in the hopes that having one at home will induce me to make iced coffee here instead of paying $5 a pop at Starbucks). I haven't set up my new printer yet, but that is on the agenda for today as well. I've also got strength exercise scheduled for later on. And I've even got one of my Swaps with Swap-bot off. And I'm getting ready to work on the second one. So I've been accomplished.
I've had Powerade zero to drink and banana and cottage cheese to eat so far. I gained weight this last week (no real surprise, considering the amount of eating out and birthday stuff), but I didn't gain as much as I'd expected. And, as I said, today is the first day of the rest of my life. So I'm going to restart today on the healthy eating and exercise.
Today is such a beautiful day and I'm enjoying it. It's what I'm here for, after all. It's what we're all here for.
