My lack of Storm pictures has been bugging me but I think that is mostly due to the cold weather. I had some flowers in my possession (thanks to my kind neighbor) so decided to take advantage of them. Now, I realize my pictures are nothing too crazy, but I’m posting them anyway. 🙂
So mentally I am feeling better. I figure if my friends don’t want to be in my life, then I will just find some friends that care. Although it is somewhat difficult to do if you never go out and socialize. Ha! Most of the time I don’t feel well to go out. There are a couple writing groups that have had meet ups, but it’s usually only once a month and I tend to have more bad days than good in a month’s time. I will still try to go to future ones though, I’m not giving up.
At the beginning of the month my mom and I went to a showing of Cirque Du Soleil. I have never been to one before and it was BRILLIANT! Seriously, if you have the chance, GO. It is totally worth the money. Going to that with my mom really helped me get out of my depressed/negative funk.
Now how I feel physically is a different story. My Lupus is in a flare and has been mean to my stomach all of last week, making it feel nauseated and acidic. My fatigue has been horrible. I get about 12 hours at night then usually can’t stay awake during the day so I take a nap on top of the 12 hours. No, I’m not getting “too much” sleep. I listen to my body. Besides, with Storm wanting to go outside every 3-4 hours, I don’t have a chance. My Fibro areas have been painful and my Lupus has been making my joints ache. I know it will be fine though, the flare just needs to run its course.
Lately I have been obsessed with a book series about a demon chic that kicks ass! 🙂 The author is Pippa DaCosta and the first in the series is called Beyond the Veil. Seriously, it’s been ridiculous. It’s the only thing I do during the day and as soon as I finish one, I immediately go online and purchase the next in the series. It has been quite some time since an author has grabbed my attention like that. But it is possible that I can’t stop reading her books because I haven’t read any other demon series/books. I’m not sure if men would like it as it has some romance. But check it out! The prequel is a bit darker than the rest of the series, but the first in the series is currently free on Amazon. And that is how I became hooked. 🙂
I had a couple ‘snaps’ from Snapchat that I thought you guys might like. Here is one but I will make another post for a few more. I hope you guys are doing well and I will try to visit some of your blogs as I know I am behind! 🙂
It seems ever since I posted that I was going to work more on blogging, my life has been super busy. But that always seems to always happen, right? I had a handful of errands to run almost every day of the week and not only that but I felt GOOD. Occasionally something would pop up with my health to which I would get some rest, but the next day I would get up and be productive once again. I was so productive that I began to question it since that rarely happens in my life. Normally because of my fatigue, it can take some time to finally perform a full task. I usually do a little at a time and divide that time up between days. I’m not lazy, the act just exhausts me. So either it’s the nice weather, or the fact that I admitted to the world that I was going to work harder, I am happy that I am getting things done. 🙂
When going on errands (and if the weather is decent), I try to bring Storm with me. Not only does it get her out of the house, but it helps wear her out (hahaha!). She sits in the front passenger seat and quietly waits for me to return. People usually walk by and laugh as she sits like a human just chillin’. If I get an extra burst of energy I will stop by a park so she can get out of the cramped car and check out unfamiliar smells. One day, I stopped a bike trail location that had a bridge and took a couple pictures of her. I want to stop by again in a few months when there is more green showing, center the picture a more to my liking and take off her leash. I’m impressed she did well with these shots as there was a nearby runner she was trying to say hello to.
So yeah that’s it. Nothing exciting happening but getting plenty done. 🙂
