Good Evening wonderful people-
Today is a gloomy Saturday, so in my humble opinion that is perfect blogging weather..and I’m sure Bridget Jones and Harriet the Spy would agree with me if they weren’t stuck in the 90’s. Did Bridget Jones come out in the 90’s? I think so…at least the books anyway. Oh well, let’s move on.
The tiredness that makes me all crummy feeling is still hanging around- but this week I think it’s because I didn’t sleep a lot. My water craving kicked up a notch again so I get up every few hours..and I’ve also spotted ants in my kitchen a few times so spend a lot of time in my bed thinking about them crawling around and then get up to look around the counters just to make sure they aren’t taking over my house. They are not, but you never know. Nothing super duper eventful happened outside of work and daily routine. I’ve been doing a lot of deep scrub cleaning recently, and also trying to be more lax in my time schedules that I’ve given myself. I’m trying to get to the point where I’m not so stressed out at the end of the day about finishing a certain task by a specific time, getting dinner started by 6 and just holding myself up to such high standards in general. In case you aren’t aware- I am definitely my own worst critic and judge myself way more harshly than I would just anyone else in the world. I don’t think this will ever really change, but I can hold myself highly accountable for everything without killing myself in the process. True story!
So I want to work on the following: Successfully having a lazy day where I do not feel the need to work out. Especially if i’m sick or, like in recent times severely lacking blood and exhausted. I’d also like to be okay with eating more than usual if I feel hungry- I don’t do this. Ever. I eat what I eat and if I feel hungry at the end of the day because I was more active then I just either deal with it, or have something to drink to trick myself. This is an old habit from my eating disorder days I haven’t really been able to fully part from yet- though it is by no means as bad as before.
Back to the present- I had someone come by yesterday to look at my spare room and I think I’m going to go ahead and rent it out to her. She seems really nice, has a good dog that is normal and likes cats- so hopefully that will work out well. Cross your fingers (and toes, eyes, whatever else is crossable).
The most exciting thing that’s happened since my last post happened this afternoon after work. First let’s go through the morning though: I woke up to my outlets in the kitchen being all out of whack so I had to put my coffee maker on the floor and just make breakfast on the stove (gasp!). Actually before that I got stuck in the rain again on my morning walk, so ended up going for an unplanned morning run. Motha Nature, you trickster! So I went to work- prepared for battle since I knew it was scheduled to be a busy day; but it wasn’t too terrible actually. Until a client came at like 1:10 and stayed for over 20 minutes talking about her trip to the dentist…we close at 1:00 woman- while your tale is lovely, please go home.
NOW FOR EXCITEMENT: Let me preface with this– you probably won’t think this is nearly as cool as I do. Okay I warned you. So after another walk in the rain, and lunch I met with a commercial real estate agent to talk about looking for space to start my very own business in the area! yay! She’s giving me names of bankers to contact for loans and such and then we are going to officially start hunting 😀 weeeeee, but also eeeeek! I’m scared/really happy/overwhelmed.
I hope you all have an amazing rest of the weekend- please bask in whatever summer you have left! It’s fading fast! I have my clinic follow up on Monday with the endocrinologist so will probably write something early next week 😉
