Monday, October 14, 2019 (a pretty typical example of a day in my life right now!)
This morning I got out of bed at 10 A.M., ate a few waffles, and spent too much time on hold with my primary care physician trying to get my pain medicine refilled. Then I got to work! First I filmed a video tutorial for an email marketing client; I had a little too much fun designing an Alaskan travel-themed email to use as the example for said tutorial. Then I sat on my balcony in the LOVELY weather, tried not to fall asleep because I was SO exhausted, and smiled at the cute dogs on an adjacent balcony as I wrote my cycling newsletter (subscribe here–it comes out three days a week).
Appetite (meaning lack thereof) has been a big issue for me recently, but thankfully today I was coming off of a (relatively small) GI flare-up and I was very hungry! I had a big salad with French bread and a dairy-free chocolate pecan brownie for lunch while watching a YouTube video. After taking a shower, it was back to work for a couple more very sleepy hours to write a blog post for a pet insurance company and work on one for an Instagram growth service, then watch a few more YouTube videos before I had to leave.
Late afternoon, I headed to the theatre for rehearsal; tonight I was only needed from 5-6 to go over two numbers. We rehearsed our Razzle Dazzle tap dance and then a slightly different group of us worked on our Grecian Urn (from Music Man) skit. I love going to rehearsal and it’s crazy that this show is so soon.
When I got home at 6:30, I wanted to go straight to bed because #chronicfatigue, but I forced myself to stay up and make oven-baked tacos (mix refried beans, ground beef, tomato sauce, and taco seasoning and bake it in tortillas). Pro tip, it’s easier to make this recipe if you have a can opener, which I didn’t. Lol. But I figured it out.
I finally ate dinner around 7:30, caught up on dishes, and was in bed with a book (The Weight of Feathers) by 8 and had the lights out by 9:30. As days in my life go, this was a pretty good one–and productive, too, because Monday is the day of the week when I have more energy than normal after resting all weekend!
What does a day in your life look like right now?
