-Working from bed today. Yesterday was a bit nightmarish. I had either a 24 hr flu, or a severe fibro flare. After going to bed at 9 last night, I feel mostly better today. My back just feels like someone threw a cement block at it. Normal for me unfortunately. I'm pretty sure stress & a crappy nighttime routine are the cause, this time. Although, I've been on a strict light's out by 10:30 pm for the last 5 or so days.

-So the hustle continues from bed. I don't know if I'll be able to work out today, it may just be a yoga day. Maybe. I hope everyone is having a better time than I am. If not, rest if you can and hopefully, you'll feel better tomorrow.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week. Mother Nature you are such a tease. Fooling me with warm air, sunshine and a multitude of bugs, buzzing around all weekend long. 🙂

Things are good with me, for the most part. Aching all over with the return of the cold weather but that's expected and each year that passes, I seem to be getting used to it (is that even possible?). But really what else am I going to do? Pain is a part of my life and unless there are drastic changes in research and cures for arthritis and fibromyalgia, that's how it will be. Acceptance and not stressing about being in pain is a big part of survival. One good thing about being in more pain then usual, is that I lose my appetite. I had water, half of a protein bar and my last vitamin for the day for dinner last night. No need to fight off the chocolate cravings. 😉

The writing is coming along. The freelance work, not so much. I keep going on because quite frankly what other option do I have, if I'm going to have success in my chosen field? So my days are constant adding to and editing of my work.

I think that I'm caught up on my missed sleep, from the losing the extra hour. I've been going to bed between 9:30 & 10pm and that has made all the difference in the world. It's a little odd to wake up to darkness again though. I was able to gauge the time pretty accurately by the light, now that's all thrown off. I really don't think that there's a need for time change any longer. There was a purpose back in the day, now not so much. The disruption in sleep, work, technology etc, is just not worth it to me. How have you been adjusting to the time change?
