Your comments were SO funny yesterday--honestly, people. And now I'm sorely tempted to get this summer's manny to dress up in a big furry costume and scare the begeezus out of a pack of little boys this Saturday morning. Mr. D has a huge fake fur coat from way back in the day--it would work to great effect on overactive imaginations. Or I could just go out in the woods wearing my bathing suit--I have't grown a full winter coat of hair on my legs yet, but if I don't shave for the rest of the week I would resemble my Sasquatchian ancestry from a distance ... Thanks for the brilliant idea, Shelly!
Today I'm off to the doctor's office to finally get these injuries checked out. It's probably a bad thing when the pain begins radiating to areas outside of the original injury. Plus, I like to make sure I have full prescriptions for my asthma meds before all the holiday traveling. Heck, if I can get my pap smeared and my mammos grammed while I'm there, I should be good to go for another 7,000 miles.
In other news, I'm continuing to whittle away at the stuff bogging me down. On the physical end, I have a goal of culling one pile of stuff per week. We have all these random corners filled with things of no use or value. Old catalogs, books I've read but will never read again, missing parts to defunct toys and games--the kind of clutter that impairs my quest for serenity. Today I dug around the edges of our bedroom and chucked a good-sized pile of junk. I know I go through life unaware of these things, they aren't pressing matters, but I do believe they subconsciously register as "One More Thing To Do." By clearing those piles and putting things where they belong (gone, in drawers, wherever), I get more mental clarity.
I've also deleted a few websites that I used to read daily. Eliminating that sort of mental clutter is good--it gives me more quality time and reduces the amount of negative or useless information I'm packing into my brain.
I went grocery shopping without the boys yesterday and bought a lot of good, healthy food. I'm making an honest attempt at eating more vegetables and fruits, more whole grains, less dairy and meat. Not a radical change, but if I eat better, I tend to feel less sluggish and more positive.
Spill it, reader. What devious plans do you have up your sleeve today?
