I did something on Friday I have never done before. I took a yoga class. Every single part of me didn’t want to go. But I used all the tools I could think of to get through it. I meditated for a half an hour before I left the house. I took deep slow breaths. … Continue reading Beginner’s Anxiety
My Temporary Withdrawal
I had a very hard day yesterday. It was so hard, in fact, I am still feeling the effects. I am reeling. I am off balance. I am emotionally hungover. I am not myself. I am not up to it, whatever it may be. And so I am withdrawing... Temporarily. I will be back tomorrow.
A Long Wait with a Big Reward
So first off let me say that I had a productive day and I spent no time at all zoning out on TV. For anyone who read my previous post they can understand what that means to me. The test has been administered and the results are in; I just needed a day off and … Continue reading A Long Wait with a Big Reward
Am I Resting or Just Being Lazy?
I don’t know what happened yesterday. I didn’t go to bed early the night before so I didn’t get up early to workout. When I finally did get up, I was nervous; sick and shaky, there’s a killer around the corner, nervous. I thought about what I had to do that day. I had to … Continue reading Am I Resting or Just Being Lazy?
And Now Some Relief
I did what I planned to do yesterday. I spent the day reading books about Egypt and then I did a bit of writing on my novel. It was my second day of 250 words (at least) per day for six weeks. I am going strong. The other side to that is this; I don’t … Continue reading And Now Some Relief
Cleaning is Good for the Soul
I. Am. So. Tired. Some big-time house cleaning happened yesterday. Halloween decorations finally came down (don’t judge me). The boys even put in their time by picking things up, vacuuming, and scrubbing down their bathroom. It was a lot of work and I am super tired, but I also feel really good about all the … Continue reading Cleaning is Good for the Soul
Just For Now

Looking Ahead to the Good Parts
I didn't get to try out my new shoes yesterday. But I did get to spend the entire day at home, alone, doing research for my novel. It was marvelous. I had a wonderful time. I learned things about Witchcraft and Ancient Egypt and Native American Prophecy, just to name a few. I spent the … Continue reading Looking Ahead to the Good Parts
The day after Halloween. I knew it would be a little rough. I had a really good time on Halloween. The next day... well the whole morning I felt like my skin was on fire, and then by afternoon it changed to a low grade cold. I had all the symptoms like fever chills, headache, … Continue reading Recovering
Happy Halloween!!! Yesterday was long and stressful but I made it through. The kids got out of school early and we had parent-teacher conferences. I, surprisingly, was not nervous. Maybe I will be feeling the effects later this week. I am going to keep an eye on that from now on. I will gather data. … Continue reading Happy Halloween
