As usual, I woke up at 4:00. I'm not sure why my body chooses to wake up at that time, but it has become a daily thing. I mean, I know I go to bed early, but really?
I have found, though, that I get a lot done during that time.
This morning, I did my quiet time, wrote a blog post, made some banana muffins, and started making smoothie bags (that I put in the freezer). These contain mango, strawberry, banana, apples, and spring mix.
Problem is, once I take my meds, I am ready to go back to bed... and by that time, I really need to be getting up and moving.
Like I said, today was weird. After I got all that done, I decided to lay back down... totally forgetting that someone was coming over. In fact, she was coming over to bring me a painting. I woke up to her ringing the door bell/knocking... I felt so bad, but we ended up having an awesome conversation.
Here's a couple of pics of the awesome painting!
The one underneath is awesome too, and was painted by a friend of mine :-).
I should have gone running, but I didn't. Instead, I showered, threw my hair up, and started working on household chores.
I struggled through the day. I ran some errands, but I felt weird all day. Not sure what it is, but I'm assuming it's a cross between my new meds and being alone. All. Day. It's so weird. And yet, I need this time. I'm having to learn how to take care of myself. And not in a sleepingallday kind of way... In a schedulemakingandflexiblyfollowing kind of way.
I'm also trying to figure out how much I can handle right now... so far, not as much as I would hope. I'm working on it. I'll get into a groove and figure things out. In the meantime, I struggle. I guess that's part of the growing process.
Sorry about the randomness... welcome to my brain. :-)
Until next time...
