This, That and Coffee

United States
July 11, 2018 9:34am CST
Good morning/afternoon or evening to all my friends here in the myLot world. It's Wednesday and we're already mid-week. My daughter is working today so I'm home and doing some things around the house to keep myself busy. When my daughter is home we tend to do things together so a few days a week I have to myself. This morning I threw towels in the wash while I showered and got dressed. Then I ran a quick vacuum through my bedroom and will leave the dusting for tomorrow. Towels went from washer to dryer and now I'm downstairs for the rest of the day. My knees hurt too much when I go up and down the stairs so I try to do everything upstairs before I come down. The dogs went out and it's hot. I don't know why I'm surprised when I open the door and hot air hits me in the face. It's summer!! The dogs got their treats and I steam mopped the kitchen floor especially where they eat since one dog is a very messy eater. I already had coffee #1 earlier but now I'm ready for breakfast and coffee #2. I feel very accomplished today and it's barely middle of the morning. Wonder if my energy will last throughout the rest of the day. What's going on in your neck of the woods?

I'm exhausted just reading all that! I haven't been sleeping well. I would have hoped my early mornings would make me more productive but I'm just too tired. I do have to get the weekend's laundry put away and my daughter is going away this weekend and wants some clothes that are dirty so I'll probably do a couple of loads tonight. I really wish I could focus on my novel. I am such a procrastinator... or depressed... or something. Just not motivated.

I go through periods like that too. Today I woke up feeling better than I do most days. Hope you can get your mojo working again

@Marilynda1225 My husband says I'm tired because I'm not doing anything. I'm not doing anything because I'm tired from not sleeping well and.... well, fibromyalgia.

Today was a good day and it feels good to be productive. Most days my energy starts lacking by mid afternoon. I didn't even need more coffee...woohoo go me

It is hot and humid here too. Did a few errands and was glad to get back to the AC in my house.

I'm stuck because my daughter went to work and she takes the car. I'm happy to enjoy the a/c and my errand day will probably be tomorrow

I got up and posted a few discussions here. I took Harley out twice. Fed her and Turbo. I am going to pull out the plastic totes today or tomorrow and pack away clothes that I wont need for awhile. And then I will probably clean the bathroom tomorrow as well. My arm is hurting me a little bit today, so I am trying not to overdo it or anything.

You sound busy busy busy today. I'm not half as energetic as you but I'm happy with what I accomplished. My friend called so I got side-tracked from doing the few other things I had on my "to do" list for today.

I am returning from office. It rained a bit here. You can do some exercises to get relief from your knee pain.

Good afternoon! That's quite a day you had! deserve the accomplished feeling. maybe try some tea or oats with cinnamon and honey. will give you energy. the coffee is fine but what it's doing is give you X2 energy but after a while, you gonna feel X4 tired. have a great rest of a day

My energy is highest in the early morning to midday hours. So I try to do most of the heavy chores then.

You have been super busy. My day has been quite a bit tamer. I went to pick up a prescription. Other than that I have been inside finishing a jewelry order and writing..
