I fell off the wagon- no I am not an alcoholic.
I fell off the wagon of DOING.
I mean I DID but only the barest of the bare,
only the most necessary of the necessary,
only the most pertinent of the pertinent.
And that was all.
FOR THREE WEEKS.
I ate (too much or at least too much of the wrong thing LIKE PIZZA ROLLS)
I drank (again not alcohol- just diet coke)
I slept (actually NOT at night and NOT very well--- I more laid in my bed)
I washed what we NEEDED- like panties and pants for hubbie to wear to work.
I cooked- like pizza rolls. :)
I schooled- ONLY WHAT I LEGALLY HAD TOO and even that was pushing it! :) Really I am calling it my fall break!
I went- when I HAD to, where I HAD to and for only as LONG as I HAD to.
But I am on the track to recovery. I am still hanging on by a thread, bouncing around on the back of the wagon... but heck on I am on it!
What started the downfall to nothingness was sickness, the kids being sick and me getting generally as close to depression as I usually sink.
We started a round of sickness in early October and it lasted for three weeks... I rallied for the most part and kept up. Even though everyone else was better I just didn't seem to GET better... I had serious allergy issues and couldn't not deal. SO I took allergy medicine.
BAD MISTAKE... this sent me into a 2 week spiral of panic/ anxiety attacks. IT was really bad!
So we finally got to Garner and I seemed to be on the mend.. I was rejuvenated and refreshed. We had an awesome family time... it was great.
Then we got back.
I just didn't do. I AM A DOER!
I maintain that it was a combo of all the above, along with stress over finances-- not like where is my next gallon of milk coming from, just ME stress for not handling things as well as I should.
DAVE RAMSEY would slap me upside the head. :)
This combined with too many changes... too much cheese being moved! TOO FAST.
So I coped, I tried to adjust but I couldn't seem to get a handle until yesterday morning,
I slept- minus the Internet at 3:00 am...
I ate an egg, apple and oatmeal for breakfast.
I walked the track at her volleyball practice.
I took a B12 time release pill (thank you for these little pills God.)
I smiled at my kids and had a fun evening.
I cooked three sides for hubbies Thanksgiving feast at work.
I started laundry- not just the NEED TO WEAR kind.
I had the kids do their chores--- the right way.
I read my Bible-- guess that should be top on the list.
I don't feel totally up to par- I've got some kidney infection issue going on and I don't feel the greatest.. but I feel SOOO much better than I did!
And last night. Again I slept from before 10:30 - 7:20!
Like I said I am back on the wagon.
In the background.. I hear the dryer going, my fridge is full of food (fruits and veggies), my kids are wearing clean clothes... from a closet full of clean clothes, I returned the Netflix videos, I got the library books together, I worked on my lessons plans for two days next week (we have missed too much already!), I cleaned off my desk, I made my bed, I returned phone calls and texts.
Its a good day to be on the wagon.
How have YOU been the last 7 weeks?
