Pacting now, on Friday night, so I don't get tempted to come here and waste time tomorrow morning.
* basics - make bed, do dishes, do a bit of tidying, shower.
* curl up in armchair (I'm always woozy on Saturday mornings because of methotrexate) and write letters / Christmas cards OR fix another parcel OR start dealing with hems.
* write deposit slip and address envelope
* exercise and stretch
Things I want to do:
* 1 floor
* 15 minutes gardening
* read the newspaper
* go to library and newsagency
I'll check in a bit later in the day with more pacts.
For the people who are struggling at the moment, I'd just like to give this little bit of encouragement: even five minute bursts of activity add up over time. I've been hauling myself around, feeling horrible, this week, but I've only just started to realise how much I've accomplished in my down-time. The house is a bit tidier, I've written two letters and half of my Christmas cards, I've wrapped most of my Christmas presents, done the ironing and a few loads of washing, done a few jobs that have been sitting, undone, for months ... and I'm starting to feel a little less stressed and overwhelmed by everything.
So, everyone, chin up, and keep the pacts coming...
