Today is my pre-Humira flare day, so I may need to sit more than I stand.

* basics - make bed (half done), do and stay on top of dishes, tidying, 15 minutes gardening.
* exercise (done) and stretch
* devotions
* meds
* make some more Christmas gifts (one is finished; if I can do three I'll be really happy)
* make some phone calls (done)

Try to:
* vacuum / sweep / wash another floor
* freeze mince in fridge
* bring in bins
* do another thing from my wish list

Bonus points (only if I'm mobile):
* go to the library and the newsagents and the post office

Today's fun thing is making Christmas presents. Bonus fun points if I ring someone and chat.

Some evil, horrible person is having a barbeque nearby (at 10am!) and it smells *so good*. It's making me hungry. There should be a law that nobody can have a bbq without inviting the neighbours nono tongue.

Have a good day, April. I hope you feel less blah soon.

How is work going, April?

I am so evil. I decided I wasn't mobile enough to do the morning chores yet, so am sitting here, unshowered and in pjs making Christmas decorations / gifts. Oh well. I'm being productive, so it could be worse. Let's just hope no-one rings the doorbell.

I can SO relate to that Ivy. I was in pjs yesterday for too long. But, you are being way more productive than me on that.

Weds:
Clean the house
Laundry in preparation for the holiday trips
Bake cookies
Send out the last of the holiday cards
Anything that keeps me inside. We're getting snow here too. 3 inches so far. Makes that BBQ sound extra good.

I am in the midst of finals and just had a horrable day today. I don't want to reveal too much info but I was supposed to be in two court rooms and a final exam at the same time. One judge moved it one didn't and I had no one to cover for me. And this is for a program through my school! You would think they would have plans for this. I ended up having to go to my dean (in tears) and got my exam moved until tomorrow! I was willing to do it later today but she knew I was really really stressed and upset and decided to give me until tomorrow. So now my goal -

It is 9:44. I need to let go of today. I napped. I showered. I ate dinner. I need to use this opportunity and study my butt off for tomorrow! Yet my brain (and gut) are still dwelling on today.

I got so upset that I immediatly got D - because I wasn't expecting to be in court today (and only planning on being at school 2 hours) I didn't bring my big bag w/ all my meds. I had to run to CVS and buy immodium. Luckily it worked immediatly.

I walked around the block a few times, called my hubby, got a hug from our receptionist, and eventually calmed down. I guess I just reached my stress breaking point. It just embarasses me so much when I get so angry I end up crying. It is so unprofessional and rarely happens. There is a lot more to the story and I don't want to give out too many details but basically I was blamed for things beyond my control and expected to fix things that I had no control to fix. But hey, I worked it out.

Ok - I have vented and am now going to study. I will not come back online until midnight! And if I do lol shame shame shame.

I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

Fitzy, I've had those cry moments too. One particular (but very nice) professor seemed to bring that out in me. I cried in front of her 3 times in one year. I think it happened then because she was always the person trying to help me and I would cry in relief.
