Day 3

It snowed! Boy, did it snow! We have a good three inches in the front yard, right now. The girls and I had a great time playing in it, my husband took some great pictures (so did I!). I have an army of snow blobs guarding my house right now. It’s great!

Then, there’s the rest of my life.

I am officially withdrawn from my Master’s classes at midnight tonight. All of the work and money I put into getting all of those classes finished… lost.

The outside unit for the HVAC is covered in ice and struggling to run, so we’ve had to turn the temp down in the house so it’s not working so hard.

I’m feeling rather sorry for myself. It’s resulted in 4 attacks today. I’ve learned that if I’m on my back, I thrash and potentially can’t move until the energy gets back into my extremities. If I lay on my side, I sleep for hours after a bad seizure. *sighs* Pick the evil, right?

My kidneys hurt, my head hurts like mad with 4 different headaches, my ankle was screaming as the front moved through, and my wrists and hands are not happy with anything I’ve done in the last two days.

Other news, My CRAFT:

Create- aside from the snow blob army, I haven’t done this much today. I’m going to try to knock out the stitching and doodle after I publish this, but I’ll be honest, I’m exhausted.

Read/Reflect: I tried to start the first Dark Tower book today by Stephen King. I downloaded some books that will require less focus because they’re free on NOOK and Kindle right now, so I’ll probably try those first.

Activity: Went outside to play in the snow twice. I still have less than 2k steps for today, though. I feel like using the weather as an excuse is just that… an excuse.

Focus: Enjoy this. I think I did pretty well with this today. I fought the exhaustion and went outside with the kids and husband when it was snowing… 3 times. When it first started to fall, when it started to accumulate, and then when it was finished. Started the dishes, but set them aside to go outside, too.

Treat Yourself- I made myself some hot chocolate with peppermint when we came in from outside. Nice big cup, too!

 

So, that’s where I am right now. The kids are out of school again tomorrow, my husband is home from work, too. I just need some motivation to get moving and I find that I am sorely lacking it, at the moment.
