Recap Day 1-June 2, 2019

My husband went to work early like he does most days and was home at around 10:00 a.m. since it is a Saturday. He went outside and a few minutes later he was outside the kitchen window with a completely broken Spade Fork.  It was my mother’s favorite garden tool.  She worried constantly about that thing when she first moved into the assisted living facility that I retired from as director.  She was afraid she left it out and someone was going to steal it.  I told her I brought it home and she seemed to relax after that.

After I finished with the kitchen I went out to “help”.  This consisted of me pulling weeds out of the area that DH was working on.  The plan was to place landscaping material down and go get some chips at our local nursery here in our small town.  Our neighbors next door came over to chat and ended up going into our backyard to see the garden area.  Their little dog chased back and forth at the chicken wire fence DH put up to protect our garden from our chickens, trying to find a spot she could get through to get our chickens.  It was hilarious.  We are really lucky that Lila wants nothing to do with them after one attacked her, springing onto her back with claws out, when they were adolescents.  The chickens have gotten better about not chasing her too. They peacefully coexist at this point.

So onward to the reason I am back.  My commitment to myself:  I decided I will do wall push-ups every time I go into the bathroom for any reason.  Just 5 wall pushups.  I kept that commitment yesterday. I cleaned the kitchen and made coffee.  I brushed, used the electric toothbrush and water pic.  I washed my now sunburned face and put on the Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid.  I put moisturizer on my face.  I tracked my points.  And here I am.

Commitment Journal: Write down a few things that you are discouraged about right now.  I wrote Money. The ability to get it all done, under control and maintain it (my responsibilities) with my fibromyalgia. My #1 thing I am discouraged about is my inability to keep commitments to myself.

Day 1 Prompt: Where do you struggle? Keeping commitments to myself.  What are you excited about? I am excited about the possibilities if I just could do that.

My plan for Day 2? I did not get down to see mom though we did finish the area in our front yard, I should say DH did.  After a few hours in the yard I was in a lot of pain, had to take another pain pill just to finish watering my flowers and garden.  So I am keeping today open to take mom to church and see what DH wants to do.  He works really hard so I will do whatever he wants to do.  We will probably do the burritos since we did not get them done yesterday.  That will take most of the day.

My daughter asked me to make two lasagnas for another fundraiser for my granddaughter’s theatre group so I make do the marinara sauce since it is always better the next day.  Fundraiser is Tuesday evening so I will assemble, bake and take them early Tuesday evening.

I was woken up on this Sunday morning by Verizon letting me know my payment posted.  I called them and asked how to make it stop.  I will do that today on line, changing the alerts.

Okay let’s do this!
