Whistle While You Do 1 Thing

Thursday is a great day to do that 1 thing you don’t want to do but also don’t want to continue thinking about doing.

I’m sick and grumpy and sick and am 100000 positive I have a fever because I have all the symptoms of a fever and also I called my mom and she said, “Yes, you probably have a fever, you would be able to know for sure if you still had the thermometer I got you and we wouldn’t even be having this conversation if you had gotten a flu shot like I told you to.” So: All signs point to fever.

So my 1 thing today was to get out of the disgusting nest of blankets I’m in and put on a coat and leave my apartment and walk down some stairs and then walk 100 feet to the corner store to buy some Advil. And I did that. Success. $8.99 for 40 liquid gelcaps. The clerk just made up the price. That’s fine. The less happy part of the mission was that I also bought double chocolate Milano cookies and just ate 12 of them and now also have a stomach ache in addition to a whole body ache and a head ache and did I mention that when I don’t feel well I revert to a tiny little whiny child because that is 1 fact about me.

My one thing was calling my health insurance company to figure out what the hell is going on with my plan, my HSA, some surprise bills I got, etc. It wasn’t that bad!

Wrap a hot towel around your head.

Feel better Logan!

I think I’m going to finally start my food blog today, because, you know, why not. Everyone’s doing it. [ inspiration: http://www.theawl.com/2013/01/the-sunday-night-facebook-cooking-club ]

I DID IT! This is my one thing from 3 months ago, but now I have all my doctor’s appointments set! Yay health!

New one thing: get curtains for the living room. This was not a pressing issue until we discovered that our neighbor is INSANE. I never want him to be able to ever see me ever.

I made an appointment for a new lady-doctor in the city! I am taking charge of my health!

Next I will make a dentist appointment (which is complicated), and then after that it is time to find a therapist to help with all of my feelings.

Renewed my library card and my state ID!

I did two 1 things — set an automatic transfer to my savings account each week, and adjusted my 401(k) contribution to 1% instead of 2%. My employer doesn’t offer a match, so nbd.

I called to get my old boxspring, which has been sitting by my trash for well over a month now, picked up & taken away! Now I just have to track down the plastic they require me to wrap it in.

I have done a LOT of things over the last week and am feeling a little burned out, so… my one thing (today) is to go to the freakin’ gym again… it’s been over a week since I ran and two weeks since I did any lifting.
