I survived my first week of Growler being out at work full time and me being home alone in the day time. It was definately more tiring (although I am on my period which always leaves me with less energy anyway). But G came home to fix my lunch Wednesday and Thursday. That meant Thursday I could stay in bed until I felt I needed to and not have to force myself to get moving in the morning and sort out my own lunch. Friday he left me things to eat for lunch upstairs so I had another slow day in bed until mid afternoon. It helped both physically and also mentally to know that the challenges do have some solutions to make life easier.
My productivity in terms of art and so forth has been quite good despite the extra things I’ve had for essentials (like making cups of tea and silly little things that mount up). But some things have slipped and gotten lost this week – like replying to emails and keeping up to date on blogs I read. I’ve found myself getting distracted by things and then doing short easy stuff like using Twitter to chat but neglecting some of my emails from friends and blogging and stuff.
But all of which is part of adjusting and part of seeing a slightly larger picture than a week at a time maybe.
Good news is that through G making up my afternoon D-Ribose in juice ready for me and an alarm set on my mobile I’ve remembered to take it every day. I’ve even remembered to take my multi vitamin at lunch time unprompted.
I’m weary this weekend and a bit fuzzy pre-migrainey headed so taking it careful. And my brain seems a bit jammed up with STUFF despite going back to making lists of things to do. It’s usually a sign that I’m trying to do too much (ha! you think?!) so some things are going to have to get loosened with my new home alone changes. I expect a lot of blog reading will need to go but we’ll see.
All in all not a bad week and I’m fairly optimistic (but still kind of expecting to get myself into trouble at some point and maybe get bitten by some payback for trying to juggle too much). We’ll see.
