Hi Gill - I'm okay. I have just been going through a combination of significant fatigue coupled with overdoing it and way busier (busy overdoing it that is...!!) Thank-you for checking on me. That is really sweet. I am yawning as I write!
Somebody needs to send some sunshine Karen's way. You have any over there Gill? I can't recall if we had sunshine today even though I was out of the house for seven hours. lol! I know it was mild though. I was out all and I mean aaaaalll day doing errands. I don't like the long drive into town, and I get tired so easy. Well, I thought I was pretty smart because I spent the past four days plus making my lists to do my errands all in one shot. Pushed through some major fatigue last night to prepare myself lunch and snacks and got up 'early' go to. Did one errand and then had to come home due to an unforeseen circumstance. That was not in the plan! So I was tired, and hubby had to drive me for the rest of the errands, only we were too late now to get to all the stores before closing. I guess the lesson is I need to learn to accept pain and inconvenience better than I do. I always try to plan things in detail so as to use up the least amount of energy due to the fatigue I experience, but then I can spend so much energy planning it wears me out. lol. And then when things don't go acc. to plan anyway, it is rather deflating. BUT it was good hubby came. He helped to make it far more fun, and he found some neat things I would nto have found otherwise. So that was good.
I should mention I probably won't be on the forum every day like before because my lifestyle has just changed. In Tennesee I had NOTHING to do every day and hence, lots of energy and time to write too. I still enjoy coming here, but now with the move and adjusting etc. I feel like I can't hardly keep up most days with things. And so it's harder to get to the computer to write and to find the oomph to do so. I'll still be popping by, just don't worry if it takes me a little longer sometimes to reply kay?
I am still yawning. I meant to take a nap even though it was 11 pm!! Because I hadn't had a chance to get on my computer yet today and I wanted to nap and get up with some energy to come online. lol. I rested, but couldn't sleep. My legs are still cold from being outside so long. I cannot find winter boots that fit me. There are hardly any places that sell half sizes, so I'm wearing my running shoes in the snow and my feet and legs get chilled. That is how I crashed the first time I was home - after walking in the snow in my running shoes. So I will need to get some hot water soon to thaw me out, and then tuck myself in nice and warm. I'll be fine. I'm just rambling on some more. lol!
Gill, you really sound like you are doing well these days. Your boys are real blessed to have you for their mom and I'm glad you've got family around you and fun things to do.
Karen - you are bigger than these damp winter days, and you always put a smile on our faces here!
Still yawning. So happy to be home after a long day. You two take good care of you, and stay warm now! I'll try to do the same! Till next time...
love you guys, Kimberly aka Embers
