Well I made it to everywhere I needed to be today, and I feel good. I prayed and my prayers were answered. I love it when I’m reminded that God does care about me as a person and wants me to know that I’m precious to him. It usually happens when I’ve about given in to the depression and decided I hate myself. He never lets me sink that low, thankfully.
Yesterday I tore apart the lower cabinets in the kitchen and cleaned them out and painted them all. So today I need to put everything back together and do the dishes that have been piling up since Thursday. I’m thinking of doing it in fifteen minute increments – set the timer for fifteen minutes and see how much I can get done, then move on to folding clothes for fifteen minutes, then clean another room for fifteen minutes, and at the last fifteen minutes of the hour take a break. Then start all over again. It has worked for me in the past and it tends to motivate me to see how fast I can get things done, so it’s worth a shot.
Tonight I’m imposing a new rule in my house – bedtime! Right now we all just crash whenever we feel like it. Well, for the last two weeks I’ve been staying up past two AM and that’s not working for me. It makes me feel way more depressed, I’m realizing. I want to sleep too late in the day to accomplish much and then I tend to fall asleep sometime around three in the afternoon, since I’m just exhausted. So tonight, it’s ten o’clock for the little missy and eleven at the latest for me. I plan on sewing after I put her to bed. That way at least I accomplish something useful that has to be done before the baby shower on October 13. I still wish I knew if the baby was a boy or a girl, but I am running out of time, so for now, everything I make will be gender neutral and I’ll have to live with that. There’ll be time later to get more specific colors going on, and I have to get started now or I’ll run out of time, I know myself too well, lol.
So that’s my serene Sunday. For once there’s nothing too pressing that I have to do, so I can concentrate on catching up on the stuff I’d like to get done and have some fun. I’m feeling pretty good about it all, so here’s hoping you guys are having a good Sunday too!
