Well now, there's a great picture of my toothbrush holder and matching drinking glass, my new jar of Tums and a piss-poor picture of my new dress! At one time I knew how to turn off the flash, but in my haste to catch the bus, I couldn't remember this morning.
Today is promising to be a better day. It is, however, a very windy one. Probably not the day to wear a dress that "swings". Good thing I'm wearing the world's best panties that stay where you put them. While this dress isn't short, it is a skosh above the knee and it feels rather daring! Anyway, I was disappointed to look down (after I got to work) to see that I'd chipped my toe nail polish after this weekend's home pedicure. Ah, well. What are you going to do?
Walked to the store last evening to do my shopping. I need to remember that I am not Chrissie and am not used to taking long jaunts in for more serious shopping. I should have brought my backpack instead of my eco-friendly shopping bag. I ended up buying too much stuff (canned tomatoes, etc ) and it was far too heavy to carry comfortably. Next time, I'll bring a "rucksack" :-)
Also did some journaling regarding my mood as of late. Got really honest with myself and got a bit of clarity on a few things, and thus, feel better. I do need to remember that when I'm most "in the feelings" is probably when I'm being most reactive. And if I recognize it and can get to the bottom of what's triggering or causing such a reaction, then I have the opportunity for growth and understanding. Feeling blue isn't a bad thing. Feelings like I was experiencing are just signs that I have some more work to do. I am grateful that I chose to deal with them rather than ignoring, numbing or glossing over.
Plans for the rest of the week include lunchtime workouts, gym tonight, musical tomorrow and another potluck gathering on Friday where I won't really know a soul. Saturday brings a fun day with Pebbles. I've decided to ride the train over to see her and I think we are going either to the zoo or the aquarium, plus a picnic. Sunday is still undecided. I'm thinking about logging some miles on the bike, which means an early start and missing meditation/church. Or I may do the church thing and then head out of town. There's a little town about an hour and half away that supposedly serves the state's best chicken fried steak! So my choices are to clean out my arteries by getting in a long bike ride or clogging them right up with a CFS from Mary's. Decisions, decisions. Or I might do something completely different.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Get back into the swing of things.
