Thank you for all of your holiday ideas! I will put the calendar together later in the day.
The other night I followed some advice in the book I have called “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff”. It suggests that I write down stuff that’s on my mind before I go to bed. That way there’s a transfer from mind to paper, which is supposed to make it easier to fall asleep without those thoughts in your head. Well it worked! Actually twice in a row, I think I wrote down some thoughts on Sunday night, too.
Now last night wasn’t so easy. I needed to back away from Facebook, because the wrong sort of thoughts were running through my head. I was taking things personally (just in my mind), I was expecting too much from others – ack. When I woke up this morning, I was tangled in my sheets and my cat was expecting me to get up and give her a treat. For a second I feared that I may have said something too whiney on Facebook and decided to check it out. Nope, nothing. My eyes were really puffy, but I had enough time to make them look less baggy before I had to head off to work. Now I’m feeling better.
I have a doctor’s appointment on Thursday because, for the past couple of weeks, my jaw has been really sore. It hasn’t stopped me from eating, but there is initial pain and then it goes away. Now I’m thinking that it was because I was clenching my teeth too much, and it was causing too much pressure on a wisdom tooth. Since I have health insurance, I thought I’d get it checked out that way first, in case it isn’t my teeth. If the pain is caused by my wisdom teeth, however, I will still have to visit the dentist. Thankfully, unlike the doctor’s office, they have Saturday hours.
Anyway, enough of that crap! How is everyone else doing?
