Well, I went to vacuum a floor yesterday and discovered that the vacuum cleaner doesn't work eyes so, if I'm mobile, I'll need to get it up to the shop so the problem can be investigated. Such a pain - I thought I'd finished all my running around.

* Basic chores - make bed (done), do dishes (done), tidying, 15 minutes gardening, shower
* Wednesday chores - do as many floors as I can (luckily I have a smaller, lighter vacuum that will do a light, if not thorough, job)
* Crohn's & fibro care - exercise, stretching x 3, meds, strengthening
* And - cook lunch
* And - put stock away, as well as the meat I bought yesterday
* And - devotions

I could pact more, but I'm still feeling as if I've been hit by a truck, so mega Brownie points if I do something worthwhile for me today.

Ivy, I hope you feel better.

I can't remember if I pacted yesterday-in a fog. Today was the exit interview for the CARF survey and the agency survived as did I. Major stress relief.
Tonight I still need to put clothes in dryer, get house ready for house keeper.
Put kitchen back in order before going to bed
Walk dog the long way
Prepare outline for seminar.

1.15 pm. I've made the bed, done the dishes, cooked lunch and had a shower. Have vacuumed and washed one floor and have hours to go before that job is done.

The fog is lifting, but now my hips are going. You can't win!!!! Not sure how I'll go with the rest of the floors, but I'll keep on trying...

Ivy, is it the MTX that does this to you, I know it leaves me feeling crappy for a few days after taking it.

:-0 I've done it all, save the gardening, the stretching and the bed-time meds, which I'll do shortly. I think this is the first time in forever that I've done most of my pacts. Oh yes, and I have a few small patches of floor to vacuum, but that can be done in spare moments over the next few days. I've done the big, hard ones.

Jo, I have *no* idea what's wrong with me. Yes, some of it is the mtx. I'm in a similar situation to you and your headaches - I no sooner start to feel half-way human before I have to take the next dose. But the rest of it, *shrug*, I don't know. I'm a total space-cadet these days. I have no concentration; I struggle with conversations; I walk around like a zombie until early afternoon, if not later. It's really, really frustrating. I'm thankful for this forum, because at least the people here understand. I rather suspect the people in the outside world think I'm just being reclusive and lazy and uncommunicative and rude.

What are you reading?
