December 26th I could not stay awake. I fell asleep several times while sitting up so I did lay down on the sofa...which I never do...and slept for another three hours. Still, I had no problem falling asleep at bedtime.

Yesterday I was fine, did some grocery shopping and I noticed I didn't have all the pain I was experiencing the past few weeks! Today I'm heading out to lunch with a friend. 😊

Like Sherrine, I was very, very sleepy--but it was on the evening of Christmas. I was watching a Hallmark show with my husband, and though I enjoyed the show, I dozed off. Hey-- I never do that! It's so dark this time of the year though, and that, along with cold air, seems to take its toll on people.

Yep, showering and dressing for dinner is progress in my book, Lj. At least you're moving!

I think it just takes us longer to recover from all the things we do during the holidays. Fun stuff, for sure, but oh, so tiring at times.

Have a better day today! yeah

Definitely.

Weather is unseasonably mild so the pressures dropped to 99...by tonight they will reach 102. Insult to injury. I had a wicked cold right before Christmas... had to sleep sitting up a couple of nights. Add a mixed up schedule and a mixed up diet and maybe I'm not doing as bad as I could be !

Definitely missed stretching and moving as much as I should. Ugh. Could not stay asleep last night.

My little 13 month old granddaughter was here from San Francisco but there were 2 times when I had to lay down for an hour nap. I hated leaving her but I knew I'd feel so much better after a rest. I'm more assertive about my needs now. My one daughter "doesn't believe in" fibromyalgia.

I had 9 people for 5 days. My husband was a BIG help. It was crazy.

Today I slept late and am quite sore all over. Gotta get the tree down. Simple tasks are huge tasks for us.

Its so easy if you do not have it ,not to believe it exists..

9 people would make most of us a little nuts..you will enjoy some quiet soon...

I usually leave my Christmas tree up until January 6th (the 12th day of Christmas). I do so for religious reasons, and as a bonus, it seems to make cold January a little cheerier---and the month seems shorter. smile

Company coming this weekend, so nothing is put away yet. Everything stays, but I'll probably very slowly put away the outside decorations later next week--starting about Thursday. It sure is much more fun to put up the tree and decorations than to put them away, isn't it?

A few weeks into January I bring out a few Valentine's Day decorations. One more way to brighten up winter! I definitely live in the wrong climate, but well, at least it's cozy inside.

I got 4 seed/nursery catalogs in the mail so far! Dreaming of Spring already, LOL. A long ways to go!

Luvs, I use to love the seed catalogs!!! It meant spring was around the corner.

This Christmas was Wonderful! Our first grandchild was born! Even though we are in the cold Midwest, this is the best Christmas ever.

Congrats puppylover on the new grandchild!!!

ThAt is fun!

Our daughters seem disinclined to reproduce,,oh well..they were raised to make their own decisions.

Someone may have prayed for their birth control to fail, lol .

Grandson!!! I think cuddling up to him made me feel better.
Most of my friends have grandchildren so much older- college age or getting married.

At 71 I love finally having a grandbaby!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was a blessed Christmas.

Congratulations, Pupoylover! I'm sure happy for you. I dreamed of that but it won't happen for me. Most of my friends have older grandchildren and my best friend has three great grandchildren and she is only five years older than I am so I do know what you are talking about.

I wish you many great years with your little fellow. I'm sure you kept the camera busy this Christmas!

Congratulations, Puppylover! A grandson - how exciting!

I am beginning to think I'll never have grandchildren either, Sherrine. My older daughter is getting married this Spring, but I can't quite picture her slowing down with work for quite a while. Well, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.

My pain has been awful since Christmas! I keep thinking it's amping down, then it kicks back into high gear. Just too much ignoring my body in the days leading up to the grand finale, I guess?

I'm going to the pain clinic a week early this month, just because I don't know what else to do. Blegh.

I'm glad most of the rest of you are recovering, though!

Barb, my son doesn't believe in Fibro, either. It hurts, doesnt it?! You'd think they'd know who we are, but sometimes not so much. My daughters are good about it, though they can't actually relate (and that's good.)
