This is the first day in ages that it's not raining, and we're forecast to have more rain from Sunday onwards, so I want to have an outside day today.

* curl up under tree and read?
* plant flowers?
* potter in garden?
* get damp washing outside so it might actually shocked DRY shocked for a change

Other than that,

Basics:

* drink HEAPS of water
* shower and dress
* exercise
* stretch - done some; will try to do more
* make bed
* spirituality stuff - done some; will try to do more


And try to do at least some of these:

* marinate meat
* cook meal
* some / all dishes
* call someone?
* strip & air bed; wash sheets?
* spend some time tidying in this room
* check paper to see what's on this weekend - done
* do a bit of decluttering


That's it for now. More later, maybe.

Have a good day, everyone.

Saturday TLC

* get dressed
* do dishes
* keep eating - appetite is going down quickly
* clean up after the dog - done

just a short one for today. Felling pretty tired and my appetite is really bad at the moment. I just dont really want to eat at all. On the plus side, i have gotten everything done regarding my ESA claim so its in the lap of the gods now till i hear back from them. I'm fairly sure they will want more info and will send me a massive questionaire to fill in about my medical problems.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, Choc.

I'll admit that I got my disability pension a while ago, but back then being on an anti-TNF seemed to automatically clinch it: it was so hard to get on a med like that, that they automatically recognised how very, very, sick we had to be. I hope the same will be true of you, and that they'll recognise what your being on Humira means.

How are your teeth, btw?

So sorry you're feeling rotten. How long until you see the dentist?

Spent most of the day outside, fixing up the garden and just enjoying the fresh air.

Bed is made, dishes are done, meal has been cooked, water has been drunk, gardening = pretty protracted exercise, and Ivy is tired.

A bit of stretching & spirituality stuff for me, and then bed.

'night all.

Have a good Saturday.

Teeth are niggling, but i'm at the dentist on wednesday so hopefully after the lecture the dentist will sort them out. I should be able to get the ESA, you need 15 points to qualify and they give you 15 points if you have accidents at least once a week. Currently i do, so i should get ESA.

I think i'm just totally wiped. i'm overdue on my humira shot. should have done it on thursday, but since my teeth are bad i cant.

Have a good sleep ivy

I hope to continue my daily ritual of walking some everyday. Since it is Saturday, I think we may go to the swapmeet and walk around a bit. I need to shower this morning as I didn't feel like it lastnight. I would like to make some oven fried potato's this morning to go with whatever my hubby makes for breakfast, so lets see if I can do that. Nothing too exciting today, but looking forward to tomorrow, as we are going to visit my husbands niece and her family tomorrow. Its been awhile since we have gotten together with family, and I am looking forward to talking to other folks. Hubby and I have been pretty tucked in at home, and getting together should be a good time. Plus I have missed the kids:)
