When you’re falling behind, but don’t seem to care…

I don't know what it is, but I've let so many things slide this week. Things I've absolutely had to do, like coursework and finals (which I'm going to try to take tomorrow, hell or high water), house-cleaning and exercise. I did get quite a bit accomplished outside, I have to admit. I spray-painted my … Continue reading When you’re falling behind, but don’t seem to care…

Operation Upgrade was a success for my feathered ones…finally. I’d crack open the wine to celebrate if I wasn’t so tired.

I fully expected my new cage to arrive around Friday and figured I had a few days to get some other stuff done. But when I checked my e-mail this morning, I was amazed that it was already on the truck and showing up today. Thus started a long morning of grocery shopping, getting some … Continue reading Operation Upgrade was a success for my feathered ones…finally. I’d crack open the wine to celebrate if I wasn’t so tired.

My Garden Weekend: saving time & running ragged all at once.

I'm still trying to figure out this weekend and what all I got done or could do. Then again, intense sleep depravation doesn't help recollections all that well. I just hope I got enough done that I can look at in the morning and be satisfied, and come up with a fair-weather plan for the … Continue reading My Garden Weekend: saving time & running ragged all at once.

Being generally tired for not much reason…

My Christmas tree looks pretty sparse this year. I just pulled out the musical instrument ornaments I went crazy over last year and put them on, and I'm getting some of those "s'more" figure ones in the mail soon... but I left the colorful plastic multicolored bubbles on hooks in the box. I just didn't … Continue reading Being generally tired for not much reason…

When depression makes you stupid, & dealing with it…

I know, I know. The Holidays (dun-dun-DUN!) bring that out for a ton of people. But really, it isn't so much that. I haven't been depressed in the sense of feeling sad; it's more that feeling where things are pointless or you've mentally checked out. I recognized the depression after three mid-afternoon naps again. I … Continue reading When depression makes you stupid, & dealing with it…

Never had a surgical procedure done before… boring & interesting in turns.

And by surgical procedure, I mean anything that puts you out entirely with anesthetic. I've had locals shot into my mouth to make it easier to fix fillings or yank out teeth (my dentist has probably made a small fortune off my mouth). I've been to a few specialists about my core area issues (digestive … Continue reading Never had a surgical procedure done before… boring & interesting in turns.

Sometimes, you just have to let yourself be lazy.

I'm stuck in a situation where I have to work open to close several days in a row. I've got two more (thankfully shorter) days of this to go, and the list of things that I should be doing is ever increasing. Storm violence led to a lack of sleep (which I'm itching to get … Continue reading Sometimes, you just have to let yourself be lazy.

My New Baby Steps Toward Healthier Eating…

I've been out of it all week. Work, sleep, work, clean, sleep, work, sleep... and all along, eating the worst things each day. I had a few good days, but they taught me a few things I should've figured out from all the other times I've tried and failed to get off the fast food … Continue reading My New Baby Steps Toward Healthier Eating…

Overhauling my life choices again, but with anemia this time…

Well, that was an enlightening sucker-punch by the doctor when I went to visit yesterday. I'd done blood-work a month and a half ago (and had a hard time getting a follow-up appointment because of all the stressful crap going on), and went in yesterday. I was told a couple of things: First, I'm pre-diabetic. … Continue reading Overhauling my life choices again, but with anemia this time…

Haven’t had my head screwed on straight in over a week, & boy has it showed…

I should still be in bed dozing a while longer on my day off, waking up slowly. Instead, I'm sitting here at 6:30 a.m. with my first cup of coffee, trying to figure out how I could've oh-so thoroughly screwed up my week (and month by extension). I should be sitting out on the porch … Continue reading Haven’t had my head screwed on straight in over a week, & boy has it showed…
