Did You Accomplish Anything Today? Anything At All? If So, Post Here!

Recommended Posts

Confirmed my store transfer and that I am in fact getting a raise (not sure how much yet, but it will be more than the standard yearly COL increase). Jan 19 is my first day at the new location - looking forward to being able to walk to work, come home for lunch, etc!

Also got a much-needed haircut...

It's so good to work close to home. I only have a 7 mile drive after driving 30 miles for years. But walking to work?! AWESOME!!!

Thanks, flasquish..yeah, I'm really happy about it...more exercise, a much smaller monthly gasoline budget, less wear and tear on the car, coming home on my lunch/dinner break.. And it is a much nicer store, with a manager who isn't a nitwit, lol..

ETA: more money doesn't suck either!

I managed to wash the clothes and take a shower. Tomorrow, I will go shopping and go to the library. I might even manage to sweep the floors today or tomorrow! I don't really like going out until I get there, but once in the car, it's fine... When I get where I'm going, I see all the other people who are worse off than me (I live in a retirement town, basically), and I feel a lot better about myself. It helps -- but just getting the energy to get up and go is often hard. (It's so easy to say "Aw hell with it, I'll do it tomorrow.")

Replaced a door casing for a needy family, built a prototype desk I'm hoping to sell at our local college outdoor market. I'll try almost anything at least once. Lol. Well almost anything. Lol.

Went out to eat with my parents. Got a little triggered of course when I seen couples together since I'm all alone. Nothing too bad, compared to the last time. Still sucks knowing I'm likely going to be alone for quite a long while yet.

After staring at it for two hours piled on my lap, I finally folded a load of laundry and made dinner for my family.

Considering the thought of getting out if bed this morning made me cry, I think I did well.

I resisting giving in to a request that would have led to worsened anxiety and depression if I had agreed to it. I guess you could say that I did something nice for my little brain.

Been going through a rough patch. Did manage to do a load of laundry and get it in the dryer, but left it in there. Also did some groceries. I am so sick of depression. This is not what I call living.

I managed to exercise for the second day this week :)

Shoveled snow

Picked up groceries

Showered

Changed sheets on my bed

Cooked dinner for tonight and prepared a casserole and a crock pan meal for the next two days, and I'm super thrilled with myself for planning that out. I don't usually plan meals in advance and then I scramble to throw something together after getting home from work.

I had to call in from work today. I didn't get any sleep tonight discussing painful topics with a guy I was on a date with. I had to take NyQuil just to sleep a couple of hours today.

I did clean my kitchen counters to have done SOMETHING today.

I went to my therapy appointment and then to the library to prepare for an interview I have tomorrow. AND I made the decision to quit smoking!!!! Wish me luck! I smoke when I am nervous, and I know I will be nervous tomorrow for my interview. But I am resolved to kick this nasty habit. Plus, I have a terrible chest cold.

I have wished to improve my coordination and body control for a long time now so I attended my first gymnastic lesson today. It was quite enjoyable.

I FINISHED KNITTING MY GAWDDAY'UM SOCKS. ^______^ It only took 4 months (instead of 2-3 weeks like normal). They turned out super purty. The yarn is a myriad of blues, because the yarn is hand-dyed merino/llama wool. And it has mini-cables in it. I hope my grammie likes her new socks.

I was feeling very ill today but I managed to do the following:

- drive my sister to the doctor

- buy groceries

- pick up my medication and the pharmacist offered to check my blood pressure so I let him do it

Late in the evening I went out and had coffee with my friends and chatted with them for two hours.

I went to the market and bought some good, healthy food. Didn't eat any of it today though.

I made an inforboard for my pupils.

I read one Franzen's essay.

That's it for today, I am not feeling all too well today.
