Hustle bustle...

I'm overpacting and aiming to get as many of these done as I can. What doesn't happen today can be bumped over to tomorrow's list:

* get methotrexate injection
* basic chores - do dishes, tidy the house, vacuum my floor, 15 minutes gardening
* Friday chores - change sheets on bed (bedding is airing right now)
* cook breakfast cereal
* either go to or cancel gp appointment, depending on what the district nurse advises.
* devotions
* Crohn's & fibro care - exercise, stretching x 3 (I really must do this; I haven't stretched for days); strengthening; meds.

If left with no energy after mtx injection:
* prepare for Monday's appointments
* paperwork
* apologies to church for an activity next week
* make list of things to do while sick and housebound
* clean out purse
* make list of recipes to photocopy

If I have some energy:
* photocopying
* books to library
* errands
* grocery shopping

And try to - make muffins, make pureed soup.

Whoa Ivy thats quite a lot to do!
Im going to look lazy now lol.
Im helping pack my daughters room up as she has found a place to live closer to work :( My first child leaving home - very sad.
I did have fun early today buying the necessities for her kitchen with her, got some real bargains. so spent the money we saved on little extras.
The rest of the day i will rest as I work pm.
Have a great day everyone

Do I have to do any pacting for Friday?
I have to teach tomorrow and due to the idiocy of the staff in my gps office I ended up with an active infection and no antibiotics for three days (on immune suppresents). I finally got hold of the doc herself today and she had my script at the pharmasy in less then twenty minutes so I now have meds but I am tired. I teach tomorrow then have to take my methotrexate,
I think my only pact for tomorrow will be to take a nap after my class.

Oh, sj. You've been through the wringer lately. I'm so sorry. *hug* Feel better soon. I think pacting to look after yourself and rest is a good idea!

Jo, it must be bittersweet, packing up for your daughter. I hope it's a nice time, though. I really bonded with my mother when she was helping me settle into my very first flat. We were stressed and busy, but it was a nice, meaningful time that I'll always remember.
