day one

I have almost completed the first day of my "routine".

I awoke. We walked. We shopped. I slept.

I got up this morning at 9:00 - beep, beep, beep, cried my alarm. I padded down the stairs in a bit of a fog. I had just slept for ten hours, and wanted more. But I pushed through, eating my cereal, feeding Nike...all the while wondering if I should go back to bed. I felt a slight wobble in my world.

When Jason got home from work, we went for a quick walk around the block. It was already getting hot out, and when we returned, I had worked up a sweat. I really despise my damaged thermostat. I am always hot - it's a bit of a joke around here.

Anyway, I'm not going to bore you with a play-by-play of my day. You just need to know that I napped from 1:30-3:30. And at 3:30, I curled up on the couch, and watched two hours of television. Then tonight, I dead-headed the flowers, watered the flowers, and watered the new sod. Right now, I'm tired. A normal tired, not fatigued.

It's two minutes to needle time...gotta go.

Wow Em - good for you! That's not easy, to make yourself do something when you don't even know what you might get out of it - to do something just because you're tired of nothing else working. I admire you. And I think this is a great idea, trying a new routine. You're inspiring me to try a new routine myself...let's keep each other company!
Love and hugs,
Annie

I agree. It's so easy to talk myself into climbing back into that bed. Kudos to you for getting up. What's needle time?

Yes Em congrats! It isn't easy to change your routine. There is a reward however, Satisfaction. Pride. Not letting IT keep you down even though IT seems bigger than yourself at times. You have inspired me to walk around the block to that little store I was too chicken to walk to yesterday because I was afraid of getting soaked and hit by lightning. As for A. we don't know how she could change her routine other than go to work and leave the children in bed.
