Day 567 Exactly why I ask that question....

Thursday, March 03, 2016

My Spark friends helped me again. I was sort of feeling like I was the only person in the world that had odd thoughts about things that might be kind of important. Today was not a great day. I was home all day. I got up late and was thinking I sort of had a little schedule going that would work just fine. So I set off on the path in my head.

1. got up ate some breakfast, read emails, checked fb for grand kids, paid a couple of bills and made a couple of phone calls.

2. went up and sewed for about 2 hours came down and fixed lunch.

then this is where it fell apart.

3. was supposed to be spend an hour picking up or cleaning or decluttering....well I was very cold and felt off. So I curled up on the couch. 4 hours later I woke up when the 6 pm whistle blew.

back on track

4. fixed some dinner (light) crochet on the temp blanket, make a granny square or 2 and come in to spend some time on the computer.

Now I'm feeling a bit guilty about that nap. Part of me says I must have needed the rest and then there is the part that yells at me that I was only escaping doing what needs doing.

I'm going to work on the schedule. But I did promise my mom I would take her out on an adventure tomorrow. It says we might have showers so she might not want to go out but then I'll stay home and try to follow my schedule.

    I find that if I do even a LITTLE of what I intended (OK, I didn't do all the laundry but I DID pick up all the dirty clothes!) it helps me feel like I accomplished SOME of what I wanted to do. And then I remind myself that I'm retired now and it's not like I'm going to be fired for not getting the laundry done TODAY!

    Sometimes you have to do it. You were cold and feeling off, so a nap was called for. You have to take care of yourself.

    I took a nap today too, but I got up way to early this morning so I needed the 45 minute nap and more. I am still fighting with all my clutter. I ran away from it tonight by going to my book club at the library. I did make some headway though this afternoon.

    Your day sounds good to me. Your nap might have been a little long, but you're a busy person. I think you must have needed the rest.

    I have to wrap my grandson's birthday present and get it in the mail tomorrow! That's the first thing I will do in the morning, and then I'll work on the kitchen table some more.

    We have slushy wet snow tonight. Not fun... Keep Sparking!!!

    I agree with Miller. Sometimes our body tells us what we need the most. Though your activity level wasn't what you wanted you still kept yourself busy and productive. 😉

    When I have chores I don't want to do I make myself do it first, the one I really dislike, and "earn" the fun stuff.

    It sounds to me like you needed the rest, so don't be hard on yourself. Schedules are good as planning tools, but they also need to be flexible to meet our needs. Since I suffer with depression, I sometimes only plan to declutter or clean for 10 minutes at a time - or I'll choose to do a very small task. Some days, that's how I keep from getting overwhelmed. I think you had a fine day - you got some things done and also got some needed rest.
