Today has been interesting. I started this morning off conducting an interview with my town's two doctors, then headed down to the store and had lunch with Lynn. When I got home, I had a chat with my editor in regard to the interview this morning then headed onto the treadmill for a workout. The … Continue reading Pushing through the fatigue and keeping busy…
Today was the first real "day-off" I've had in a few weeks. The bad news, a chunk of it was playing catch up around the house. The good news is, even with the housework I worked at catching up on, I still managed to get in a couple hours of 'The Outer Worlds' on the … Continue reading Enjoying down-time
Well today was a mix of good and bad. The good news is that the rotator tear I was previously diagnosed with in my right shoulder is no longer an issue. The bad news is that the ultrasound apparently showed the development of bursitis in the shoulder, which explains the ache. They opted to do … Continue reading A change in perspective
I am looking forward to sleep tonight. It's going to be in my own bed. It's been a busy, but productive week. I'm glad it's over though, because it was too much time on the road. The second day of my second course was definitely better than the first. It was more defined, and explored … Continue reading Slowing down
Well, today went sideways. My plan for the day involved writing and working out, instead my brain fried itself, and I ended up covering the store for Lynn as she has been feeling unwell most of the day, so I didn't manage to get a workout in. As for the brain frying itself, I've been … Continue reading Don’t quit; rest, then keep going.
I've been swamped the last couple days. Lunch with my editor yesterday afternoon, meeting last night, and a meeting and event this morning., and more tonight. I'm glad to be busy, and definitely happy to take advantage of the busy-times, because I know July was really slow. I have another couple of days with stuff … Continue reading Priorities
I have to admit, when I first saw the trailers for Hobbs & Shaw, I wasn't going into the movie with high expectations. The entire super soldier trope has been overdone, however the movie surpassed all expectations. The chemistry between Johnson and Statham is undeniable , and manages to grow throughout the entire two hour … Continue reading Movie review: Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw (No spoilers)
Two pieces of good news for today! The first is Lynn finally made it to her mom's last night after her unexpected stay over in Unity, SK, and the second is I got home from the store last night and found the fence done! Brian and his guys have to come back when the wheels … Continue reading Busy, busy.
It's amazing how much sleep helps my moods. I actually slept pretty good last night, despite waking up a couple times through the night. Mood-wise, today has been mixed. I have been doing tons of journaling since I've been here this admission, including some poetry which I will upload once I get discharged. The outcome … Continue reading “Winning is winning”
I can't believe it's been nearly a week since I wrote last. Things have definitely been busy around here. Between running between events for the paper, theatre, and the dogs, I've been on the go pretty steady. A year ago, I would not be maintaining as well as I am. A year ago, the last … Continue reading Growth in the last year.
Today, I'm struggling. I'm starting to feel like I'm spinning my wheels, and going nowhere. I know it's the illness whispering in my ear, and telling me lies. I know I have to fact check the thoughts that flood through me. I know I am better than I have been in a long time. I'm … Continue reading Celebrate the wins
