@LookUponMyWorks thanks! It's definitely been A Week. I'm looking forward to a super low key weekend to get everything back to normal :)
@LookUponMyWorks oh no! Awkward emails are The Worst. rip it off like a bandaid, you'll feel so much better after. Well, there might be pangs of awkwardness for like 5 minutes but then you'll feel great
@ThatJenn I really like that mentality! I think once I'm done with this roommate fiasco I'll try to change my "One Thing" mentality. Maybe one thing I've been putting off, balanced by one thing I could do to make myself happier healthier etc.
My One Thing last week was to do a bunch of things for my roommate moving in this Friday and I am super happy to say I did almost all of them! (I haven’t cleaned out our shared storage closet – that is going to be a project for like 2 weeks from now instead) My One Thing today is the last few things before she moves in tomorrow: - Drop off 4 bags to goodwill - Wash dishes that are sitting in the sink - Wash stove/counter - Wash that weird sticky thing out of the refrigerator drawer (everyone has that, right?) - Wash tub and change shower curtain Aaaand done. I also need to pick up my prescriptions for my root canal tomorrow. I’m not so much stressed about the root canal as I am excited to take a big valium and get a great night’s sleep tonight. Either way, this won’t be nearly as painful as the endometrial biopsy I had on Tuesday. Everything is a cake walk after that horror show.
66.67 and I am not surprised at all. In my planner (I still keep a color-coded paper book instead of using ical or google calendar) I have to write daily to-do lists that break down to the smallest bit and usually tap out at ten items/day. I probably should get one for work because sometimes I end up drifting aimlessly through the work day because there's a bunch of things I need to do but they're hard to pin down. And it's really satisfying to draw a line through a to-do item.
@ThatJenn so sorry about your loss - your family is lucky to have you. sending positive thoughts your way!
@andnowlights I love Smitten Kitchen! Her cookbook was the only thing I asked for last Christmas because she takes the most beautiful pictures of food. I think I've been feeling run down because my anxiety has been on red alert and wearing me out. After this week I think things will even out (an endometrial biopsy and root canal have been hanging over my head). I hope your anxiety calms down! Meditation and deep breathing sound corny but have really helped me, particularly when I need to go to sleep or have anxiety related heart burn.
@Heather F G happy birthday! I'm sorry you didn't see all the musicians but that's super fun that you're still going to see Jenny Lewis! Beck came to Boston and I was *dying* to go and no one else was interested.
@Stina thanks! I am so so happy and relieved that part is over. and this is a good first cleanse for when I have to move in 6-8 months :)
@andnowlights this sounds like such a lovely weekend! fantastic :)
