June 27, 2014 – #CelebrateTheSmallThings & #WriteMotivation

Always enjoy the beautiful colors that paint the sky.

Sorry I’ve been MIA these past two weeks. It’s been really hectic at work and by the time I get home, I’m exhausted. I’ve literally had to jump through flaming hoops to meet deadlines after they took my help away and kept piling the work on without giving me my help back on top of making the new deadlines impossible.

Monday, I broke my phone. Tuesday our TV died. So that didn’t help the pocket-book any.
I’ve learned I’ve gained 5lbs in the last month and I’m thinking it’s the medication the doctor put me on for RLS as it’s been that long. Now I’m wondering if I should experiment with going off the meds to see if it was coincidence that my pain lessened or if it was its normal cycle of on again off again.
TheHubs has been pretty bad off in the pain department but he’s been loving just the same. We are starting to think that the Botox is not working as it’s his 4th treatment with little to no relief.
We’ve hardly done anything, inside or outside the house. The house is getting pretty bad so I am hoping to do some cleaning this weekend. IF we’re not too broken from the Color Vibe 5K on Saturday. At least we have that family outing. I Hope it will be something fun and TheHubs isn’t in too much pain from it.

Seems all I do lately on here is combine the two posts but I’m sure that’s ok. Life happens and that’s all we can do, right?! 🙂

So, June Goals are kind of meh…

  1. FINISH WIP#1! Seriously! Finish it already! It’s only ONE MORE SCENE! —  Still inching. But had to put it on hold this past week because of the day job.
  2. Keep up with blog posts for both blogs – this one and my Caring for My Vet. — Yeah, no. Too much life happening.
  3. Comment/cheer on my fellow #WriteMotivation peeps on Twitter, FB, Google+ and their blogs. See #1 and #2
  4. Continue with my positive thinking. I am so rocking this out of the ball park right now. I know that it ebbs and flows. I just hope I never go down that dark road again. So I’m keeping up with positive! Even though it’s been a rough couple of weeks, and something just wanted to bring me down, I wouldn’t let it. I also made a move to help a fellow friend find some peace in her anxiety! I love helping people! <3
  5. Read another book. Finished ALLEGIANT yesterday. YAY!

  6. Ping from Rebekah Loper:

    *hugs* I’m sorry about the phone & tv. That really sucks for the finances. I’m trying to start slotting savings aside for a new tv on our end, too, because ours is probably going on 10 years old. It was used when it was given to us right after we got married, and that’s been 6 1/2 years. And it’s still a regular old tube. No flatscreen, HD, or even an HDMI input. We’re practically living in the dark ages, lol.
