Ok I spoke too soon, I am no longer okay with the amount of work I need to do. I guess it is just going to ebb and flow. But in positive news, I got myself a weighted blanket and I really think it is helping with my middle of the night anxiety! 10/10 recommend getting one if you ever wake up with worries.
QOTD: Would you have survived on the Oregon Trail? I used to love that game!!!! I don't think of myself as much of a great adventurer, so I don't think I would have liked it in real life... but I am a good organizer/planner and I think I would have done a good job keeping people on the plan that kept us alive and going (no dysentery for my crew, lol!).
Oh god, my self care was just non-existent yesterday. I did not eat or drink enough to stay alive and have no idea how I'm here to tell the tale.
B: Protein Coffee
S: Costco Egg Bite

Good mornin JB and everyone. I hate to hear you're having such a rough time with work JB. That just really sucks...you deserve less stress!
Not much planned here today. I have an appointment with my psychiatrist and to update financial stuff there too. Yesterday became pretty horrible pain wise. I had to have my mom try to rub my left leg as it was throbbing. It's weird, the skin is kind of numb on the back of my leg but the rubbing hurt...a lot. The massage didn't last long lol. I did put some muscle rub on it and it helped a wee bit. I had a pity party for one yesterday.
The shot in my left eye went well. The worst part is the cleaning of the numbing gel out of the eye. That liquid is sooo dang cold. I found a nice little chair to put in my room at the thrift store...in really good shape. It's lighter weight and can fit a cat too. When I switch to a twin the cats are going to have a hard time adjusting. There will still be room as I'm not a bed hog but they prefer a little space. They want to be close to me but not to close. My mom found a bunch of Halloween decor. One little figure ended up being worth over 70 bucks but it's so cute I doubt we ever sell it. Kind of a retro Halloween cat thing. If I remember to I'll share a pic Friday.
Speaking of the adjustable bed...the base should be here by this weekend. The mattress hasn't shipped yet but says it should be here this weekend. The sheets & mattress cover shipped this morning and the topper was shipped last night(it's just a fairly thin egg crate type topper).
QOTD: I'm not made for that type of thing. I am thankful to live in the time of heating and A/C. I was good at the game but would suck real bad in real life!
B: JUST egg, cheese, chicken sausage and coffee before it
L: PP shake
D: I'm thinking pad Thai cauliflower veggies with some chicken added in
S: L&F yogurt, pear and maybe popcorn
Sometimes life is like sunshine and rainbows ... other times it's a big steaming pile of . . .well you know what.
Just keep swimming!
Well i live to die another day. Sometimes that's all I got. Work was supposed to slow down this week because the person I was covering for is back....it's all lies! The dog is still of her game so we were up late and back up before bright and early thirty.
QOTD: no. I'm terrified to camp. Enough said
coffee with sugar free white chocolate Mocha
geillwd chicken and shrimp? We are going to Texas Roadhouse so that's what I'm thinking.

today is my thursday. I'm off friday to get a tooth cut /removed out of my mouth. its a big molar and then they are putting in bone graft material to help fill the hole. Its not until 3 pm but there will be valium involved the night before so working and leading calls may not be an option. it would be fun though- wheeeeeee
QOTD: I would be good at 'getting' the things needed for the expedition but wouldn't want to actually participate. I could be the 'liaison' and be the equivalent of amazon back then. maybe run a general store that wasn't very general.
egg whites/cheese/joseph pita
leftover chicken/shiritaki noodles
shrimp i think
Happy Hump Day all!
Yay for the weighted blanket, I love mine, it doesn't make me sleep any longer but sleep so much better...I did finally switch from my pre-surgery weighted on to one that is lighter more aligned with my current weight. Much easier to move around underneath it now, lol. Did you get one of the cooling ones? I sleep with all the things so I didn't need the cooling aspect. Have the kitties gotten under it? I had gotten my nephew one and his dog loves to snuggle under it.
Only ONE person showed up for the library book club yesterday (plus my librarian friend that had to be there)! It was great chat but I was laughing at how over prepared I was for it.
QOTD - I look around Colorado and I think "nope, would have turned back here" frequently. Even being further north, I would have turned back. If it had been up to me to settle the country, the family would still be in Scotland. I never played the actual game though.
I am going to a work lunch today, very exciting....like I'm up and dressed in work clothes and everything (casual work clothes but still).
Menu today - coffee plus half and half X 3
either lettuce wraps or Thai chicken salad
taco meat with cheese
last of the scone from Scots fest
Have a fantastic day everyone!
