Strangely tired tonight...

Monday, August 04, 2014

I think TOM is dragging me down hardcore today. It has been going on for 35 days now. I'm so tired of it, but there's nothing I can do except hope this Pill stops it. Le sigh.

Despite being tired I did get a little bit done today. I woke up a little earlier than normal and made one of my frozen breakfast burritos. It was super good. I was afraid the shells might taste weird or something after reheating them, but it was perfect.

After that I put my nose in a book. Then put my nose in another book. Then did some work on for a while. Basically a lot of butt sitting. Then I woke dh up and we hung out for a little bit until it was time to make food. I made baked pork chops, mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. Really good, and really easy to make. I just haven't been in the mood for complicated recipes lately.

After we ate, we got up and headed to the bathroom to do some chores. Dh cleaned the mirror cause I can't reach it. And that's a pretty big task because that mirror is ridiculously large. Then I scrubbed down the counter and the 2 sinks and got everything all tidy and organized while dh cleaned the potty. After that my back was bothering me for some reason, I was tired, and neither of us were in the mood to clean. So we left the bathroom half done. We'll finish the rest over the weekend.

Once we were done in the bathroom, we came back to the living room and sat down. And have done pretty much nothing since then. I made one of my frozen meals and a salad for dinner and ate. I played some more on and read some more. So... a lot more butt sitting.

For some reason my back is still a little ouchy tonight, but nothing bad. Just enough to remind me it has an ache. I took some Ibuprofen earlier and that seems to have taken away most of the pain now. And of course it helps that I'm doing a lot of butt sitting.

Tomorrow I only have one major task -- make more kitchen cleaner. I make {most of} my own cleaning products, and we are almost out of kitchen cleaner. So making up a new batch of that is going to be necessary. Otherwise I'm going to try to do a little work in my room maybe. I need to find some things to do cause I'm not going to the gym, but I don't want to sit on my butt all day. Maybe I'll clean out a kitchen cabinet that seriously needs cleaning out. After dh wakes up we have a couple errands to run.

For the rest of tonight, just relaxing with my book and hopefully going to sleep soon. I've been yawning all evening, hopefully I'll still be sleepy at bedtime.

Hope everyone had a great Monday!

    I have to agree with Steven. I was going to say that about your back pain being connected to TOM but he beat me too it. emoticon Especially if you are still having cramping with TOM. I hope you feel better soon. And you could be strangely tired because your hemoglobin might be low due the continuous visitation by TOM. You might want to try some natural sources of iron, dark green leafy veggies like spinach and collard greens, beans and lentils, dried prunes or raisins (I know like yuk!!), egg yolks and iron enriched cereals and grains. Cream of wheat is usually enriched with iron and is a good source. Those might help with your feelings of tiredness.

    I have a call out to my oldest daughter about the Crohn's website for your friend. Hopefully she will call me back or text me the information so I can send it on to you.

    emoticon Feel better soon!!!

    What is emoticon for nutrition and emoticon for exercise, heavy housecleaning!!! Did you know you can use newspaper to clean windows and mirrors to save on paper towels? It was great that when your back began to bother you, you did not push it! I wonder if TOM is adding to the pains you have your back.

    I hope the pill FINALLY works with TOM!!! emoticon

    Good job. My back is bothering me tonight too. Think it's from working so hard at the Legion. Have a great Tuesday!
