I woke up yesterday morning feeling better than I have in weeks. Maybe I’ve actually been sick. For the past few weeks, I hurt all over. I’d sleep for a few hours in the morning and a few in the afternoon. I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I had to fight to open my eyes when I woke. There was nothing overt. I thought it might be the change in the weather from cooler to warmer and/or allergies.

Then I woke up feeling like a person, instead of feeling like something the cat dragged in or like I’d been pulled through a knothole backwards. It lasted all morning and into the early afternoon. Then… BAM! I had to lay down, fell asleep, and struggled to wake up after two hours, hurting all over.

And the whining is done for the day. What was good about yesterday?

I added a couple hundred more words to the new story, The Blessing Basket. Yes, I meant to have it out in time for Easter. Life happens. Not giving up or giving in. Never quit. Okay, there are times when you need to walk away, but that’s a whole other story.

I walked two miles okay. I’ve had to cut my physical therapy down. Yes, I can do more, if I don’t want to have the energy to do anything else. Then again, the energy problem might be related to whatever this not feeling good thing is. Adapting to what I’m able to do right now.

I ate pretty well, for me. Not complaining and actually pretty proud of myself. I didn’t binge. How’s that? Yes, cheering myself for not bingeing.

Did a little fun reading. Stopped in on social media. Handled emails. Cheered for my friend in the Boston Marathon, though I didn’t see them. I knew they were there and hoped they did well, despite the rain.

Called a friend, something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, and made plans to go to lunch later. Visited with other friends online.

Watered plants.

Brain is feeling a bit scattered. Trouble focusing. Not beating myself up over it. Go me. One day is all I’m required to tackle, one minute at a time.


  1. Bummer, Judy. But you are quite productive for an unwell person. Hope you feel better soon.

    • Thanks, Beth. God is good.
