Yesterday, I did something I always mean to do on Sundays and never actually get around to. I prepped my meals for the week. I'm not sure why, but I woke up with energy. Granted, my intent had been to use that energy to tidy up my living room, so I can take photos and … Continue reading Food Prep Day!
TGIF. This whole week has been an endless slog through horrible exhaustion. The clocks changing seem to impact me differently than others. I don't understand it. I was more tired each day than I was the day before and I'm desperately hoping this weekend will allow me to fully adjust to our new time zone. … Continue reading Time change lag and executive dysfunction
On Wednesday night, I was supposed to meet up for drinks with an old friend I hadn't seen in many years. We had texted on Sunday about it. Wednesday evening, we said. Neither of us could think of where to go, but we agreed we'd think on it and get back to one another. I … Continue reading Failure to Connect (AITA?)
ADHD, depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, recurring headaches… It's understandable why my home is generally not very clean. Tidying up quickly before friends come over is something I can do. Knowing there is a deadline puts pressure on me, and I perform well under pressure. (ADHD and Cleaning) It's an adrenaline thing. My mind and energy … Continue reading Cleaning House Without Distractions
The doctor's appointment to discuss the heading disorientation I experienced a few weeks ago is today. I'm nervous. If I'm being honest with myself (and her) my head doesn't feel quite right. It feels like my hold is fragile, but my hold on what, I'm not sure. Past posts on this topic:* That’s me in … Continue reading Dementia Fears
I'm so glad someone found a way to monetize the Tide Pod idiocy of a couple of years ago. No ice. No stirrer. No glass. We're redefining how whisky can be enjoyed. Introducing The Glenlivet Capsule Collection #noglassrequired pic.twitter.com/F4MGErsfZM— The Glenlivet (@TheGlenlivet) October 2, 2019 I love whiskey, but I think I'll stick with sipping … Continue reading My First Sheet Pan Meal
How the hell do you keep an exercise routine going when you feel like utter shit most of the time? I have sinus headaches that I've been getting since I was a kid. I don't know what causes them. In the past, they were thought to be sinus infections and I was given antibiotics anytime … Continue reading Not enough spoons for an exercise routine
Me: This is it! This is totally the week I'm going to start going to classes at the gym more regularly. I remembered to bring my gym bag with me to work and I'm ready and excited. Let's do this thing! Yeah! Gym: Hahahahaha sucker we're closed this week for maintenance. I was all excited … Continue reading Life’s crazy coincidences…
Thoughts on exercise, one month ago today It's 6:00 AM. I have my coffee beside me and my cat, Abigail, curled up on my lap. It's cool in my house, far cooler than it's been these past few days. When I rose out of bed I ditched my lightweight summer nightgown and threw on a … Continue reading On exercise, depression, anxiety, and laziness
I'm incredibly nervous about meeting Christopher Gorham. I'm convinced he won't want to get to know me, primarily because I have become so fat.
Some of the guys who contact me on OKCupid are hilariously awful. Many are not. But the awful ones are usually more fun to talk about...
Desperate for creative inspiration, I turned to Google and searched for inspiration. Literally; it's what I typed into the search bar. I found the following quote on the website for The Chopra Center: “There is but one cause of human failure and that is man's lack of faith in his true self.“ - William James … Continue reading Narcissistic Recovery: Ready to Start Dating?
One of my neighbors on my cul-de-sac is retired, but she doesn't seem to have gotten the hang of taking it easy. We got snow for the third day in a row here, and it's quite icy out. Schools are closed and everyone who can has either taken the day off or is working from … Continue reading Random musing: The energetic neighbor lady
