Black Daiquiri is Wonder Woman!


Recommended Posts

So, after taking a month off of NF to get moved into our new house, I think we're settled in and I'm ready to get moving again - just with less packing boxes!

  1. Do the PT exercises.
    My knee's been acting dumb, so I have to do my PT exercises so I can avoid paying a lot of money going to physical therapy (even though I love my physical therapists).
     
  2. Drink the water.
    This is not to eliminate other beverages, but to bring my water consumption back up (from almost zero because I'm horrible at drinking it even though I actually *like* water…)
     
  3. Go for walks.
    The temps are getting more moderate and enjoyable during the day, and though the neighborhood we live in now is "smaller" (we're sided by two fairly busy streets and don't have sidewalks, so it's kind of a super bummer for just up and leaving the house for a walk…), I *DO* have a car and I *DO* have a stroller and there *IS* a good park with paved walking trails and playground equipment that I have been wanting to go explore. I have been making excuses though: I want to go with husband (valid, but difficult since his work schedule is more strict and he works later in the evening); temperatures have been high, but now they're falling; my knee is dumb, but walking will help. NO MORE EXCUSES. Plus bebe can use play time outside and fresh air. :D 
     
  4. Be creative.
    The past week or so, I have been doing so many things with my sister and it has been sparking creative sparks that have been lying dormant for too long, so I need to tend to that. Sketching things, digital arting things, pulling out my bujo for the challenge and making bujo pages - those all count.

Each of these should be done daily, though, for the walks, my minimum is 4 in per week.

 

LET'S DO THIS THING! ^5

Well, today was kind of a shite day.

 

I did some PT, but not for my knee. For my back/shoulders instead, so I'm counting it. :P I'm drinking my water. And I sketched out my bujo and then drew a goofy sketch that wasn't all that great of a red panda. I mean, it was ok, but I wasn't really feeling createy... I was just trying to find something to do while rocking my son so he would hopefully fall asleep for his nap (which *never happened ever today...*).

 

Didn't get a walk in. It was rainy this morning and in the afternoon when husband wanted to go out with the bebe, I just wanted a break from the bebe, so they went out together and I had some quiet and time to sweep. Then, after husband got off work, I had planned to go for a walk or run or something to get out and get another break (it was a *really* rough day) but husband hasn't been feeling well, bebe had been onery all day, and husband ended up spending the time replacing an outlet for me and my office space which meant I needed to observe and contain bebe.

 

Long, long, day.

 

But, I think bebe is finally going to sleep so in a few minutes, he will be in his bed and I am going to take a fizzy bath bomb bath and just forget about today and it's stupidness.

Bath was great! :D 

 

But the stupidness continued. As I drained the tub, the sewer drain in the basement said "nope! don't want it, you can have it back!" /sigh

 

But, but. Called the plumber this morning, they were available fairly quickly and it was just tree roots (which won't be an uncommon issue since we have two fairly massive oaks between the house and the street), and it wasn't super expensive. But, but, but, our stack pipe from the main floor toilet also has a small leak, which is not good. We have a tentative quote which is more expensive, but this isn't something husband can fix himself and it is something that needs fixed. So. There's that. /sigh

 

Today, so far, I've left the house, which was good and, I think helped bebe finally take a good nap (yay!), supported daughter while she talked to the school about financial aid and books and start of classes and stuff, bought groceries, and just about everything *not* on my challenge. :P  I also put a couple of reminders of some recurring activities that go on at the local library for children bebe's age (or thereabouts) to take him to. He needs kid exposure and, since I can't yet sign up for the Y, this will be a good way to do that that doesn't also cost money. (kinda triggers a bit of anxiety about being around stranger peoples and kids and strange situations and stuff, but nothing I won't be able to deal with once the "anticipation" part is past and the "doing" is happening)

 

Going to spend a bit of time finishing up my bujo so I can actually, ya know, use it this week... and go from there for the rest of the day.

 

(Also, I love how the weather's cooperating with my plan to add in walking since it's so freaking humid out right now. THANKS FOR THAT, WEATHER!)

I shall do this once I've had the chance to wash my hair (which didn't happen after the bath last night because of aforementioned plumbing issues). ;)

 

Probably not in costume, though.

Duh!

 

Yesterday, I took peanut to the library and he had So. Much. Fun. This was his first real outing being around other kids and it was a lot of fun watching him around other kids. Then when we got home, he fell asleep while eating his lunch. It was so adorbs. While he was napping, the plumbers came by unexpectedly to work on the repair which was fine and he slept through most of it, so that was also good.

 

 

Today, I took him to the park (two actually... kind of disappointed in toddler sized playground equipment here in new-town...) but he got to swing and play in wood chips, so he had some fun, then I went on a 1/2 mile walk, so I got that in today too.

 

Still fighting with my knee. Strangely, it felt ok walking, but it hurts like a bitch after I've been sitting for a while, or when I sleep, and doesn't seem to matter the position (or rather, it will hurt *more* in certain positions, but always hurts regardless). Doing my PT and hoping it'll help the more I do it. It's gonna have to do for a while since I can't go back to PT for a while what with the unexpected plumbing costs. :P 

 

Anywho. The past couple of days, knee notwithstanding, have been pretty good. Need to keep it up.

I haven't been doing a great job using my bujo to track my challenge. I'm having desk issues related to a bad resin job and a baby that likes to get into every thing, so every thing ends up on top of my desk. Those are the main reasons. Other reasons are more emotional. I've been having a lot of emotions. Not sure how much are hormonal because, hello shark week. *sigh*

 

Emotional crap:

Spoiler

But I've been noticing a higher outcropping of anger lately, usually self-directed because I know that no one else is doing anything to deserve anger for whatever reasons, so I'm doing the "I'm angry about X thing, then getting mad at myself because I have no reason to be mad in the first place" thing. Basically, I've been angry inside a lot about a lot of things and I don't really like it, but I am having trouble drilling down to the whys of it to move past it.

 

I'm pretty sure I'm on the downward slope of my 3-5 year depressive cycle, and it kind of sucks. Considering setting up an appointment to talk with my doctor about this because I don't really know what else to do.

 

Good things, because I always try to remind myself about the good things when I feel like crap:

  • Yesterday, I fit into another, smaller pair of jeans I couldn't fit into last May, so that's a thing. This is making me feel a little better for this upcoming fall/winter time period because I may not need to buy new pants to wear in order to leave the house. :P
  • My sister and I have been collaborating on art stuff and that makes me feel good

This guy:

 

Challenge stuff:

I *have* been on a few walks. I am drinking *some/more* water each day, but I am not meeting the goals I would like to. I have been doing my PT, just need to keep up on it. I think the only thing I have going for me is the creativity one, which given the emotional bullcrap is actually surprising - it's good this one dovetails into the project I'm working on with my sister.

Sorry to hear about the anger issues, that's an frustrating cycle to be stuck in. I would highly recommend talking to a professional about it; the insight and suggestions they can provide are amazing. 

 

Hope things are still going well overall for you. This challenge has been hard to keep in touch with people on. Still making progress?

I also agree that talking to a professional might help. I also suggest writing down the incidents when you do get angry. Note the day it occurred, the time, what is going on around you in your life and the world in general. This might help you find a pattern or see if something is triggering the emotion. Also if it happens a week before or after that time of the month, it could just be your hormones all out of wack. I know that happens to me, I'll be angry the same way you are. It's no fun!

 

You got this lady.  Those emotions you can't touch you!

Thanks guys. <3 That's an awesome WW gif, @Jonesy :D 

 

I did talk with my doctor today. It was a good talk and we're going to address things, so I think things will be swinging upward soon. Plus, she had me get an xray of my hands and my knee to make sure I'm not dealing with bone issues in my joints and that it's just connective/soft tissue stuff, so there's that too.

 

In other news, I put our old house up for sale last Wednesday and got an offer on Saturday for more than we were asking, so that's happening! 

 

For the challenge: 

 

PT gets a solid C. Did some, could have and should have done more, but did some, so that's better than none.

I definitely A+ drank enough water the week I was sick, but C- the rest of the time. >.>

Walking is a B-. I didn't do any real walking at the parks in town, but I did a buttload in my old town the one day my car was in the shop (the day I put the house up for sale) and I've gone out of town to the mall which had lots of walking going on. There were other smaller walks, but nothing spectacular enough to mention.

I don't have anything to show off for creativity, but I think I get a B for this one too - but only thanks to @tourennatrix because she's been creating all over the place and we've been collaborating on some stuff that's pretty awesome.

 

So, not too bad, I guess, especially given the emotional everything. Imma give me a hug because I deserve it. *hugme* :D

As you say, some is better than none. Grats on pushing through and getting things accomplished, and good luck on moving forward with the doctor and addressing stuff. Hang in there, you've got this. /hugs.
