Feeling better lately. I'm waking feeling rested, though still struggle with the weekday routines. Allowing my body to wake naturally seems to work best, but means that I wake around 7am or 8am. Which is later than I need to awaken during the work week.
I do not take my meds regularly. I've been taking them on ...essentially alternating days. I slept with the CPAP last night for the first time in a week. I feel the same.
My brain space, is much better, it's amazing what a clean home can do for that. I've been able to maintain most of what the "tribe House cleaner" accomplished for the last week or more. And it's inspired me to get more done.
I went on a ...date on Friday night...which was interesting but he wanted to move significantly faster, in a direction I did not want to go. However, managed well enough when I informed him it was time for him to leave. Yesterday, there was beer tasting at Grand River Brewing company, and I found something I like!! The company for that tasting, and the subsequent coffee was pleasant and enjoyable. He's poly with a primary partner, so being friends is the extent of where that interaction will be going. We have lots in common, and talked well. I'm keen to meet his wife, as she has a Master's in Social Work and it seems we'd have lots to talk about. Today, there is a coffee date at 2pm, with a fellow who I'm quite keen on. Although, having run through the WTF report on OKCupid with our match, I'm seriously wondering how this is going to go!!!! zagatto
has fixed K's computer and it will return home with me, when I pick her up. I'm lookng forward to putting some effort into fixing my own machine!!
I still have the Jerker Computer desk available if anyone knows anyone who might be interested. I haven't gotten around to getting it on Kijiji.
Went to mylostmarbles
birthday shindig last night. It was wonderful to see people I haven't seen in a while, though I struggled with the volume and multiple conversations at one time. I can tell it's been a while since I was out to a full social gathering. I've been spending my time amongst smaller groups and that has impacted my abilitity to be comfortable in those larger settings. My anxiety goes up! That being said, I was able to take the moments I needed to get it under control and also get some lovely girl contact moments!! And I'm now officially considering hiring psychedelicbike
as my official hair puller!!! It's been so long, I forgot that could actually bring quiet to my chaotic mind....
This week is a short work week for me. I've booked Thursday as Vac, and Friday as well since it's a PA day for K. I have lots to do in that short week (especially since I haven't done any overtime work this weekend) but that's ok. I"m looking forward to going to utsi
's Wednesday night and getting caught up since I'm sure it's been YEARS since we've hung out. Then it's off to mom's for a visit.
Today - vacumming will happen before I go for coffee, and it looks like I have to shovel again!!
Overall - things are good. There's a few niggling, "requires closure" stuff at the back of my head, but I have to wait on those. I'm not in control of that, and those people with whom closure is required, do not seem to be ready yet. I'm ok with that. In the meantime, I am continuing to move on, in the same direction I was heading before the blast...One step, and one day - at a time.
