01.03.17 – End of Day Notes

What I did today:  I slept in this morning, something I haven’t done in quite a while. I just kept hitting that snooze button over and over again. When I finally woke up fully, I had a sore throat and a coughing fit. Ugghhsss.. I have the crud that my sister brought into the house. Mine isn’t as severe (yet) as dad and brother’s is, but it’s there. I feel it. That meant going to the store and getting cold meds. Spent most of the afternoon catching up on my posts and trying to work on Andromeda Dreaming, but since I feel like crap, the creative flow just isn’t there. It will probably be some time tomorrow before I get the next part of my story finished. I am just too exhausted tonight to finish it.

What I learned today:  I read a post over at Judie Sigdel’s blog about creating vision boards and I think I will give that a shot. It’s a good way to visually create intentions for the upcoming year. 

What I am most proud of today? I didn’t panic while dad was driving today. He kept going over to the shoulder of the road and while it was scary, I didn’t lose it. I think he should have waited another day before driving after that over-medicated scare yesterday, but we made it to the next town and home again all in one piece.

01.02.17 – End of Day Notes

What I did today:  Today was a worrisome day. My dad isn’t feeling well. He has a bad cough and a bit of a cold. Last night, he took two different cold medicines and went to bed. They had a negative effect on him, left him weak and dizzy. He fell in the bathroom and it scared the hell out of me. My brother helped him downstairs and I’ve been sitting vigil most of the day, keeping an eye on him. He’s finally able to walk on his own without falling. 

What I learned today:  This fasting thing is always so hard during the first few days. I’ve been using the rubber band method to keep me from wanting food. Day 2 is almost over and I know tomorrow will be another difficult day. After that? Smooth sailing. 

What I am most proud of today? I’ve allowed myself to sleep off and on, in between watching over my dad. Normally, I would have forced myself to stay awake with something this important and end up sick from it myself.. Sleep when he sleeps, awake when he awakens. It’s worked out well today.

01.01.17 – End of Day Notes

What I did today:  Today was a bit busy for me. I spent the day getting used to my new routine. Yes, there are always routines with me and then I grow to regret them, but for now, a new routine. Writing – there will always be that. Lots of journal writing and drabbles. Trying to hone my skills. Also started a new writing course. That should definitely help with my writing.  A cleansing fast – did a 7-day a few months back and rather liked the feeling of emptiness at the end. I am shooting for 14 days this time. 

What I learned today:  That my great-niece Skylor loves to read. That thrilled me beyond tears. I now have a young mind to expand, even if it isn’t my place to do so. Her sister, Autumn loves art and Hot Wheels. Her grandfather is encouraging the Hot Wheels part, which also thrills me. I hate gender specific toys. 

What I am most proud of today? I’ve been gentle with myself today. Not over-doing anything even though I have this burning desire to exercise. I know that isn’t good on a cleansing fast, so lots of pampering and resting. The exercising can begin once I am finished with the fast.
