I have to do everything in five minute blocks today because everything hurts; even writing and typing are hard. Anyway, I'm overpacting again and will try to get as much of this done as I can. My main priorities are to put the stock away and get the house tidy, and to get some groceries if I'm mobile enough.

* basic chores - make bed, do dishes, tidy the house in 5 minute blocks, shower, 1 floor, 15 minutes gardening
* Saturday chores - paperwork
* and - consolidate the few missing items from the last few grocery shops into a new list (I wish the grocery shops would keep a regular supply of basics instead of telling customers to come back tomorrow - it isn't always easy or possible to get there!!)
* and - put away the stock I made last night
* and - cook breakfast cereal
* Crohn's and fibro care - exercise, stretching x 3, strengthening, meds.
* devotions

* bonus points (optional activities) if I'm too tired to move around much - go through my inbox and make a folder of all unanswered emails; read; add a page to the letter I'm writing; give myself a manicure / pedicure; get hair off legs; read newspaper; do some pricing.

* bonus points (optional) if i have some energy and mobility - grab some groceries; go to the video shop; post letters; make some sago (mmm, nursery food *sigh*).

1.45 pm and I'm dragging myself around in slow-motion and feeling horrid. I won't complain about the mtx because I need it, but the side effects can be aggravating.

I've put the stock away and made the cereal, made the bed and done the paperwork, the shopping list and a bit of tidying. Still have lots of tidying to do, though.

I really shouldn't be here now... dishes are calling...

Jo, I'm glad you're feeling more rested now. Good luck at work this afternoon. (btw have you used the training you did last week yet?)
