Usual tlc:

* shower, wash hair, dress
* make bed
* some / all dishes
* appointment
* meds
* eat as healthily as I can (upset gut and d)


And try to do some of these:

* clear some space on answering machine
* work out when thing is on, and whether I can go. If yes, go. If no, send apologies.
* tidy my bedroom. tidy my bedroom. tidy my bedroom. tidy my bedroom tongue
* do some exercise, because I haven't been doing "enough" lately and feel flabby
* spend some more time sewing up rug
* try to declutter five things
* order cards etc
* random bits of cleaning
* rehang shower curtain
* open parcel
* put op shop books in car


And if gut and fatigue allow:

* take back shredder
* buy a better shredder
* (find pen?)
* (get pen fixed?)
* take some stuff to the op shop
* buy some fruit


I might come back and add more later.

Have a lovely day, everyone. And Vixen, three cheers for your son!

Today I've already:
*called GYN and gotten (-) test results-I have to celebrate ANY test that comes back negative, so YAY!!!
*cut grass-got the side and back yards done before the rain came in
*showered, dressed, a little makeup on

Will try tonight to:
*clean bathroom (countertop at least, bonus points if I get the tub cleaned, too!)

I'm gonna try tomorrow:
*cut front yard
*vacuum my room and bathroom with my sad Dyson that you have to hold down the on/off button for it to work :(
*take sad Dyson over to Dad to look at and see if he can mend
*reschedule dentist appointment
*make some plans and see friends after they get off work, or go see nephews since I haven't seen them in a couple weeks (very sad seeing as they live 4 miles from me)

Hope your day is going well Ivy! Oh, and I seem to be more productive since I have someone to answer to, if only because I "report back to" you and tell you what I've accomplished! Do you find the same thing? By making a list and posting it, you have purpose and motivation to accomplish something, even if only little things?

Oh, yes. And even thinking about it as tlc instead of chores makes a big difference.

My big problem at the moment is that I'm still just getting through the days instead of building a happy life for myself, but the tlc is helping. A bit. At least where paperwork & mess is concerned. Ultimately I want to have more friends and a better social life, but I suppose that will come with time.

Do you have any long-term ambitions that you're aiming for through the tlcs?

I'm still feeling quite unwell here, with v upset gut, but am going to try to get through the appointment anyway. Sadly for my social life - but also happily for my gut - appointment clashes with the "thing" I referred to in my original post today, so at least I don't have to go out and eat and drink in public and deal with the toileting afterwards :-/.

* shower, wash hair, dress - yes
* clear some space on answering machine - yes
* work out when thing is on, and whether I can go. If yes, go. If no, send apologies. - yes
* tidy my bedroom - done a lot of it.
* try to declutter five things - yes
* order cards etc - yes
* open parcel - yes

Sorry about your Dyson, Becky. It's so annying when that happens.

It's a catch 22 sometimes, isn't it. I find myself weighing going out and eating vs dealing with it later, and sadly for my social life, many times I choose to stay home and eat safely.

Ultimately, I want to be working again, but until I can go back to school (which I can't this semester because all of my transcrips didn't get sent and I was in the hospital and unable to check on them in time to do anything) I can't do much except keep looking for work. Xray is pretty exclusive, and in my area, is a pretty flooded market unfortunately. I had the interview last week, and have applied whenever I see anything I qualify for. Once I start back to school, I'll be working toward a nursing degree since it has so much more job security. I think I'll be so much happier once I'm working toward something! Right now life is very stagnant. I try to just stay busy and keep doing things, rather than dwell on it.

I did manage to get the vacuuming done (finally) despite the button being an issue
Also got the side and back of yard mowed
Talked to sis and made plans to all have dinner Sunday

Will try to get up before noon and continue on list!

How old are you Ivy? My group of friends has changed a lot in the last couple years. We used to all get together at least once a week, sometimes both Friday night and Saturdays, but now with people being "married off" and having kids, our group has fallen apart. I still talk to them, but we don't spend as much time with each other and I feel alone more. Not getting out of the house as much (not working especially) makes me feel so isolated. Unfortunately I cannot control a lot of it, so like I said earlier, I try not to dwell. Hopefully with a new job will come new people to do things with.

Sorry to vent, it's been getting to me lately.
