I woke up completely exhausted today. I love teaching early morning seminary- I really, really do- but the early part of that equation has been extra challenging lately. I went back to teaching a little before I ought to have, but I was so eager to do something that made me feel like me again that I jumped back in, almost out of desperation. It really wasn’t from feeling overly-obligated; I had a very good sub lined up and she was willing to keep going. I just can’t tell you how great it is to start the day off with the gospel and the correct attitude and perspective on life. I’ve had a hard time keeping that perspective lately.
Today has actually exceeded my expectations. I over did it yesterday, so I really have been just drained- but I did several of those little, annoying tasks that I hate. Tasks involving paperwork and phone calls, tasks that jab like thorns until you finally get them done- I barely got off my bum, but I have several of those little things no longer hanging over my head. Of course, I also spent several hours just laying on the couch doing nothing, and that was good too.
I also washed my bedding, which was a big deal when you consider how hard it is to make and unmake a bed. I would really like to clean up my kitchen, but my energy for the evening is probably going to be sucked up by getting the sheets back on the bed and the duvet cover re-attached. I know, what an interesting life I lead!
On another note-Watson didn’t get neutered yesterday because the base vet’s office neglected to tell us the correct time to arrive. Now we are waiting another five weeks because they can’t get us in any sooner even though it was their fault. Why even tell us he is having 9am surgery when you want him to arrive at 8 am? Ugh. Frustrating, indeed.
The best thing is that I have had a good mood day. That may seem silly to say, but there have been a lot of unhappy days in the past week (all those crazy hormones) so I am grateful to have a day where I feel more like myself, proactive, sensible and able, even if tired and not yet completely well. I have my 6 week check up tomorrow- only two official weeks of recuperation left after that (although in unofficial weeks, we are looking at quite a few more of leveling out and rebuilding strength and stamina). I’m hoping all is well and that I can progress as planned.
I’m hoping I can move on to something a little more interesting to blog about as well ha!
