I'm having "One Of Dem Days". Remember that song by Monica? Her first album Miss Thang was pretty good. You may or may not, depending on your age. I haven't thought about that song for years, until I was thinking about the title for today's blog.

So yeah, I'm feeling kind of blah. Doing too much thinking about life, business, my mom, my future. And it's overwhelming me, but I will get through this. I'm taking time for myself and trying to be a better sister and friend. Although I don't think I'm doing a good job in those aspects. I'm a loner by nature, so it's a task no matter how much I love and care for a person, to be social sometimes.

~Work Breaks. This means taking a break when I need to. I've been taking most Saturday's off, for the last month or so and I kind of like it. The guilt of not working, is slowly going away.

~Walking. If I need to take a walk in the middle of the day to clear my mind, I do it. Exercise in any form is always good!

~Bedtime. Continuing to go to be in bed by 10 p.m. at the latest. This also means no social media, except listening to a podcast or audiobook, to lull me to sleep. It's a bad habit that I'm still on the fence about. Should I use it to lull me to sleep or should I fall asleep in silence?

~Baths. I'm back to taking baths in the evening. Partly because it's a great way to relax before bed and because I've had some high pain days, in the last week, from the fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis.

~Crying. When the tears want to come, I let them. I'm not a cryer in general, but since my mom died things have changed.

~Relationships. Just checking in with friends & family, with a simple text or message. If I can't call them up or see them in person. I'm working on this this.

~Positivity. Lastly, positive thoughts and words, to myself. No matter I rotten I may be feeling. I'm still not 100% convinced that it works but I'll continue to do this, in the hope that it will come to fruition.

I kind of forgot about that light thingy, for S.A.D, I was supposed to buy. I'll look into that today.

I'm relieved to no end.

Will I get time off? No, because I have tons of ideas & projects to get done. But that's okay.

I will make my daily list as usual & check off each task as they're completed.

I'm going to try embracing stress, just as I embrace being overly busy. A means to an end. Not always enjoyable but it needs to be done.

  • Get ready for another open house. So much fun...not so much.
  • Have the open house.
  • Get paper work together to do taxes. Possibly do taxes?
  • Work on longer meditation sessions. Needed b/c life has been throwing rocks fast & hard this past week.
  • Work on test recipes. Fun but annoying when they don't taste good enough to eat.
  • Continue editing short story/book. Yeah, I had to put this aside for a while but I'm back on track.
  • Work on website coding issues & blog.
  • Continue my search for more Freelance jobs.
  • Exercise on the weekend, not matter how busy I am. It's hard sometimes. Some weekends I have no desire to put on the sneakers and walk.

P.S. I actually won a book this week, from a goodreads contest. The Dead I Know by Scott Gardner & I will do a review of it. Well, it won't come in the mail for 4-6 weeks but hey, it's a book & it's free.

Are your weekends just as busy as your weekdays or do you get to decompress?

Song of the day:So Emotional (2000 Remaster) - The Ultimate Collection So Emotional, Whitney Houston, The Ultimate Collection, 2007, Arista Records LLC. See So Emotional.
