03.04.16 – End of Day Notes

What I did today: I took it easy today. Did my writing, but also relaxed with a couple of movies. I’ve done a bit of reading today too. A late afternoon nap was probably not my best idea, but my blood sugar was high and so I took some insulin and went to sleep. Feeling a bit better now. I just need to remember to eat because when I don’t, my bs rises on me for some odd reason. Most people have a drop in bs when they don’t eat, mine just climbs. Then I get sleeping and irritable. I also avoided phone calls today. Two of them. From good friends. Not my proudest moment, but I was in the middle of downtime watching movies and didn’t feel like talking on the phone. I get that way sometimes. I just really hate talking on the phone and one of these friends could talk for hours.. every day.. I just don’t have that much to say every day.

What I learned today: I need to stop stressing out over things. I worry and get all anxious over not reading enough emails and posts each day. I am not avoiding it so I don’t know why I am so stressed. I do what I can when I can. But the stress is causing my body to ache and I think the insomnia too. My brother keeps saying to me, “does this blogging thing give you a paycheck, no.. then stop stressing.” He is right of course.

What I am most proud of today: I took time for me today. Movies and sleep. I do feel more relaxed. And I am proud of myself for realizing that I did indeed need that downtime.

What did you do today? Learn any lessons? Have a reason to be proud? Share your thoughts with me in the comments!

Celebrate the Small Things – 03.04.16

Celebrate blog hop

Today I am celebrating…

Truthfully, I don’t have much to celebrate this week. I am just busy writing. I guess I could celebrate four successful days on my WhoDunIt. So far, the story is progressing along nicely. No hiccups. No writer’s block. I would say smooth sails ahead, but as surely as I did, Murphy would come visiting and it would all go to hell. So I won’t jinx it.

I would like to be celebrating Spring, but it snowed yesterday. About 4 inches worth of that white stuff. And it is cold. So nothing to celebrate about that. Although, the weather man does promise 70 degree weather next week. *fingers crossed*

I can’t even celebrate about staying rested during all of my writing excursions because I have been plagued by insomnia off and on for over a week now. I will celebrate getting 6 hours of sleep night before last and another 3 yesterday evening, but I am awake again and sleep is alluding me tonight/early this morning.

What I will celebrate is my muses, Catharine and Evelyn, as they are staying on top of things and keeping the ideas flowing. Thank you, ladies!

And right now, I am going to go celebrate my coffee pot. It looks like another long day of writing ahead of me.

What are you celebrating this week? Feel free to share with me in comments.
