I woke up in a bad mood this morning. I was feeling pretty badly and was stressed about medical stuff and client stuff (as in, I woke up to three client emails giving me assignments for this week and had to remind them all that I’m off work for the rest of the year). I laid in bed for a while trying to wake up and then made myself get up, get ready, and make some tea.
At noon I had a voice lesson via FaceTime to make up for the lesson that, ah, didn’t go as planned last week. We briefly reviewed the song I’ve been learning and talked about what we’re going to work on in the new year.
When my lesson was over, it was time to leave: I had an appointment with a new dietitian today. The appointment was about 45 minutes away one way in an outpatient education facility associated with my hospital. I thought the dietitian was knowledgeable and nice; she didn’t necessarily tell me anything that I didn’t already know, but sometimes it’s just nice to get a fresh perspective and hear things from somebody else.
It was almost five by the time I got home and I was feeling pretty terrible. I made myself eat a small dinner, take a quick shower, and write a few letters. It’s 8:00 now and I’m feeling better and more awake, but I have an early morning tomorrow, so I need to get ready for bed.
Today I’m grateful for: Getting mail–including Christmas cards, letters, and the magazine pictured below! With the post office delays this month I haven’t been getting as much mail as usual, but things have picked back up the last few days.
