Feelin' dodgy, so keeping things slow and sedentary:

* basic chores - make bed, do dishes, shower, 15 minutes gardening
* get the house tidy, because it's a mess this morning
* Sunday chore - clean kitchen (if I can. If not, just do the obviously dirty bits)

* I'm not very mobile today, so here are some optional productive jobs I can do while sitting:
- do some Guide stuff (done)
- devotions
- file while watching tv / listening to the radio
- catch up on ironing while watching tv / listening to the radio
- catch up on newspaper reading
- get hair off legs
- watch the churchy videos I rented
- read
- write letters
- meditate

Bonus points if I make some pureed soup.

Hoping on your thoughts folks. These great pacting posts always ground me. Thank you for that and the great support.

I'm carrying a full time job and then some. Can barely get household stuff done in addition to that. Yesterday, I went shopping again for clothes b/c of the weight loss and change of season---felt ok and then poured poo out the front and back for hours. Weakness and dehydration this am.

Am I trying to do too much while I'm waiting for the humira to truly kick in???? It's the beginning of my fourth month. Do I need to cut back and wait for this stuff? Or do I need to try a new treatment? I told myself I'd stay on committees, etc through the end of Nov before making the decision to change my roles.

I just don't know what to do.
