OK, now I'm tired. Amazing how exertion catches up with you 36 hours later.
Am working in five minute blocks, as that's all I can get the energy & motivation for today.
I left the house messy and the dishes undone in my mad dash to the city on Tuesday, and I'm still trying to catch up. My big pact for today is to put everything away so the house looks tidy again. This is important, as I can't get on and vacuum etc until things are off the floors.
Daily chores - do dishes (done), make bed, shower and wash hair. No gardening because it's so bleak outside.
I'm supposed to do a load of washing, do the mending and do the ironing today, but I'm going to make these chores optional because it's more important that I get the tidying done.
And - chase up a tradesman who's been procrastinating calling me for weeks now
and do 15 minutes pricing.
If I'm very good and get the house tidy *and* if the Crohn's is back under control (I'm in a mini-flare as I'm almost due for my Humira) I can reward myself by going down the street and buying myself a book and pottering in the craft shop. No tidying = no treat.
Super bonus points for doing things like reading the newspaper (Saturday's paper is still sitting on the floor, unread), getting hair off the legs, giving my neglected hands some tlc.
Oh yeah, and exercise, stretch x3 and get back on track with meds.
