* Basic chores - make bed, do dishes, shower and wash hair, tidy the house (which needs it), 15 minutes gardening if it stops raining.
* Sunday chores - clean the kitchen (half done)
* Crohn's and fibro care - exercise, stretching x 3, strengthening, stay on track with meds.
* and - go to the plant show
* and - do church at home and keep listening to uplifting stuff on tape / radio.
* and - cook breakfast cereal
* and - fold and put away the laundry

* Bonus points - grab a few groceries, do extra-challenging exercise. Talk to someone on the phone.

Once again, Ivy, I look to your posts for validation and support. I read each pact. Today (Saturday), I was so frustrated with myself b/c I had so many things to accomplish. But after reading your post I realized I did accomplish a few: changed the shower curtain liner, did 2 loads of wash, went to pharmacy for tylenol, cleaned up company's breakfast and lunch dishes, set out all that lunch stuff to begin with, changed the sheets. I did sleep a lot today though--and I spend so much time on line. I'm in so much pain--too much "Real" eating this week. It's so hard to give myself credit for taking a shower (which I did do)---I feel so useless sometimes.

Had to go to a big dinner for my husband's job the other night. Just kept lying to folks and saying I'm fine. Sure, I'm miles better than when I saw them in June, but I still feel like crap. Answering all their (very kind) inquiries made me realize I really thought I'd be "Back to normal" by now. Ha--it's a good day if I can get off the darn couch.

By the time the speeches came that night, I was whipped and holding back some serious D. Ran home, took care of business, and went back for the after party--lasted all of 20 mins before I had to "go" again. Then, spent the next 2 hours running to the bathroom.

Anyway, thanks for posting---again, I appreciate it.

Sammies! Why did you run all the way home to go to the bathroom!!! I could never do that. It makes it a lot easier to go out when you start using what ever bathroom is available!

(((Sammies))). It sounds as if you've had a rough day. *hug*

I'm all for starting a new health movement. Let's encourage healthy people break the connection between socialisinig and eating. It shouldn't be too hard, given the current fascination with the "obesity epidemic". Let's tell 'em that they should be concentrating on talking, not eating, and then it might be easier for people like us to get through social events. Hey, we could start a new world-wide fad: called "friends without food", or something like that.

*another hug*

Such a good idea! I even had my parents in town recently for my brothers college move in, and I kept telling them, "come by for dinner, or lets go out to lunch." I think its just because people need something to do when they hang out. My friends and I will go hiking or walking or swimming instead of out to eat. I can generally find something to eat out most of the time but when I am at my worst it just seems the world is so food focused.
