Today has possibilities and hope...
of being productive by:
Finally vacuuming. I put this off and put this off and put this off by:
sweeping. All the time sweeping--the wood floors, part of the carpet and area rugs. With a good old fashioned broom and one of those power broom thingys...that run on a rechargeable battery. Over time they lose power and that is where this one is now.
Vacuuming kills me...my back my neck. Ugh. But it has to be done, sometimes. And today is that day. Plus the pain in the afore mentioned places can't be much worse than it currently is, so no harm.
And I am only about halfway finished with the sewing project that I began a week ago and I want that out of my hair. It hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be.
I went over to help Janelle and family move yesterday, and there was little for me to do. She is one amazing woman when it comes to this --- she gets in there, and gets sh** done! So, I did a little of this and some of that, and then it was time to get out of her way and let her put that cute little place together the way she wanted it.. I knew there was no way I could put things where she would want them...and she had it all well under control. So I did the shopping that had to be done and came home. I was an alright day.
Friday night, I had plans with a friend for dinner and drinks. I had to cancel. I could not go out...I was in no kind of shape to go out with someone that I know but not too well. He is just a friend, but does not know or understand the magnitude of my problems and I just can't sit and tell him all about it, omgosh, who wants to hear that? He is a great guy and would certainly try to understand, but I so don't want to have to go into all of that with him. So, I had to cancel and then I cried. I could hardly walk by that time of the day, and while that happens to me often, trying to explain it is difficult at best. I am used to it, my family-Mark-even my coworkers are getting the drift but a new friend? No...I was taking high amounts of pain killers and was afraid I would act goofy or something. But I am so tired of missing out on life. I was really looking forward to a "normal" evening out. A few laughs...time away from home that is not necessary but actually wanted and enjoyed.
But today is a new day and I am going to be productive, even if it harelips the governor. (Yes-- I know, that saying is so non-politically correct..but I have used it all my life. When I was growing up, my best friends mother always said this, and I have used it ever since.) No harm to the gov meant in any way...
So I am going to vacuum, do laundry, sew and make a big salad. (Seinfeld flashback here...LOL) And be happy. I am going to be happy, dammit.
So this is happy me, signing off. I'm gone. :)
