I hope your week has been full of bright, sunshiney days! I've been feeling just a little unmotivated and overwhelmed. So, what do you do when you're in a funk? I have to admit that while cleaning my windows (inside and out) made my house sparkle it fill me full of songs of cheer. Ideas? Thanx!
Chaos abounds in typical fashion. And I've been doing good at sticking to my diet, but my bum is still sore from that 30 mile bike ride and exercise has been hard to fin this last week. I've only lost 1 measly little pound in the last two weeks! I find that frustrating and disheartening but I keep telling myself that it's okay and the pounds will eventually keep falling if I keep sticking to my program. Right?

Haden had a little red spot on his knuckle a few weeks ago. It disappeared after a few days but then about a week later it came back. We all assumed a bug bite, maybe a spider bite? We kept watching it, and trying neosporin and benedryl. Well over the last few days it has gotten worse, spreading into the second finger and getting redder and some purple. So yesterday I took him to the doctor. She did some blood work and he goes back next Tuesday.
So far, all we know is that it is not a bacterial infection or spider bite. It may be lymes disease or something else. She said some of the blood tests take 48 hours to get back so we really won't know for a few days. The immediate CBC showed low white blood cell count, low enough that they redid the count manually. . .not sure what that means. But it has me just a little bit stressed out. A momma always worries. His birthday is tomorrow - my baby, the youngest of them all will be 17 years old tomorrow. Wow I'm old!
Boy those birds look peaceful. Maybe I just need to be a bird for a while. I've had slooow internet, and did I mention motivation issues, bad hand kid, too much to do and not enough time to do it, headaches, taxes, chaos in my life, the last few days so I'm really behind in making my rounds, but trust me, I'm coming asap. Does it count as complaining is I strick it out?
Some days I would love to fly away.
Maybe find somewhere peaceful to hole up for a bit and rejuvenate. So, what is it that you do to conquer the blahs, lack of motivation, chaos, overwhelmedness, life? Can you share your secrets?
