Bah. eyes

Basics:

* TRY to feel more enthusiastic about today, because I don't right now
* make bed
* exercise or stretch
* drink water
* eat veg
* spirituality stuff
* appointments

Try to:

* be washed and dressed by 10.45
* get house reasonably tidy by 11.30
* dishes
* give the kitchen some extra tlc
* give my legs or eyebrows some extra tlc
* moisturise
* write to someone or, if I feel a bit more alert this afternoon, ring someone
* do a load of washing
* open ISP letter
* write to case manager
* think about what I'm trying to accomplish this week, because I feel like I've lost the last few days in a haze of pain & messed up appointments


That's it for me. Might add more later, once I wake up properly.

I think I might grab my iPod and put on some happy music to start with.

Ivy -- thanks for your concern on the vax. Finally doing better. DTaP is Diptheria, tetnus, and pertussis. There've been pertussis outbreaks near family we visit often and caregivers of those who can't be vaxed (my newborn) have been urged to get boosters. Monday's school was pretty good. Visited a Montessori today and didn't like it. There was a biter. He really bit into another boy and it was basically accepted behavior. Not sending my girl there.

Weds:
work on sleep schedule for son
oil change for car
pick up remaining Rx
return library books
wash diapers
make a list of items to pack for weekend trip

That's terrible about the biting, Inflamed. How can they get away with accepting that sort of behaviour? Don't other parents question it?

Weekend trip? Wow! Are you going anywhere special?

Still in pain here, but appointments are over. Hooray! I'm sitting here browsing the net and darning socks which (amazingly enough) is something I quite enjoy doing, so I think I can say I've justified a bit of enthusiasm about today, and that's more than I was able to do this morning.

Two loads of washing are done, but I've only hung one (no room on the line!). I've opened the ISP letter and done most of the dishes.

I'm having a week where I'm completely fed up about how much longer it takes (and how exhausting it is for) a chronically ill person to accomplish even basic things, but am trying to keep plodding on...

I'm keeping up with the housework but falling behind on everything else this week. *sigh*. Oh well. Can't do everything, right?

To everyone who is waiting on emails from me, I'll try to get back to you over the weekend (or next week).

'night all.

Thanks for the backup on the biting. They pulled him aside and talked to him, but that has little impact on a 2 year old. Maybe they work with parents on it? My daughter's old daycare had a clear policy on it. If it happened once the kid was separated and parents warned, a second time and the kid was out. I got the sense it was not treated as seriously there.

My trip isn't too exciting, but will be nice for us. Going to the beach for a picnic with the extended family. We live out of town so it's an overnighter. Also the first trip with two kids. We need to bring beach and picnic gear, but have little room in the car with two car seats. Planning and packing will be tricky.

Ivy -- glad the enthusiasm improved. I get further behind each day, but just prioritize. As long as I get what I have to done I count it as a good day. Then I have the rare day I almost catch up.

Choc -- hope you get that letter. I hate having to chase things down like that.

So far today:
up and dressed
kids fed

we have bad thunderstorms, so I might need to change our plans.

Thanks Ivy. We still don't know what's up. I'm going in a couple hours and taking my littlest. Got the car cleaned out and the bags mostly packed. Just send healing vibes.

Thanks!
