Oh boy, here we go again. I overdid it and now I'm paying. I'm trying really hard to relax my angry muscles and walk by everything that needs doing withoug paying any attention to it. As everyone knows, it's not easy! Trying to breathe steadily and let my negative thoughts roll by like clouds.
But I just returned from a normal person's house, and that makes it harder! It's not the clean house I envy (well, that too) - it's more the ability to decide to DO something and be able to see it through to completion in a reasonable amount of time! And then have it done!! I started painting a bookshelf 3 days ago, worked for about an hour (with breaks), and since then my whole left side has been mad at me...aching, burning, throbbing - you know. The bookshelf still needs another coat, but I don't dare touch it again until my body calms down. My house is full of such things that never get done for the same reason. I've taken 3 Darvocet in the past 2 days, very unusual for me. That keeps the pain bearable.
Sorry for the poor-me rant. Hope you all are having a better weekend.
