Good morning all. I was so busy yesterday that I didn’t write. I did around 27 different things that I had on my to-do list. It was a lot. I was also so tired by the end of the day that I couldn’t think well enough to blog.
This morning I slept two hours longer than I usually do, and I honestly could use more sleep. A nap may be in order today. I am super sluggish, have a headache, the tiredness and fatigue are real. I might actually take it easy today. I have things I need to do, but it may end up being a bare minimum day. That’s fine with me. I’ve accomplished a lot over yesterday’s 12 or so hours of being awake.
I worked a lot in my shop yesterday. I needed to do a lot of reorganization of my work desk. Drawers we’re out of hand, finished pieces here, unfinished pieces there, sold items over there…it was a mess. It had quickly become a disaster zone since opening my shop. But! I got it organized to my satisfaction, and it functions a lot better than it did. I’m kinda proud of myself for everything I accomplished. It was a long day for sure. Aside from re-thinking my desk, I did many other things including: new wire wrapping, pictures, listing stuff, editing listings (which I’ll probably do more of today), printing labels and packing slips, packaging up products, arranging for USPS pick-up, and demolding a few new pieces. Yeah…a lot. I feel good that I did all of that, now I can rest today.
I did all of that stuff on top of my normal chores, and a couple of extra chores. I also didn’t go to bed until 10:45 PM. It was overall a good day, even though an exhausting one.
I have been going to bed later at night – between 10:00 and 11:00. I’m finding I sleep better, and that’s a nice thing. I also enjoy being able to stay up later, and I don’t really know why. Maybe it’s because I like the night; the calm, still air, the shroud of darkness and blanket of stars, and of course the moon if she’s out. As much as I enjoy the night, I love the sun in the morning (if there aren’t clouds like today). The sunshine and moon glow seem to energize me. Sometimes I still need to go to bed by 8:00-8:30, but that’s fine.
Which do you like more – morning or night, or somewhere in between?
Today I’m hoping for more of a rest day. Depression and anxiety are present, kind of like they always are to some extent, but being so tired is making it worse. Of course it is. Feeling unmotivated because we’re tired is a normal human reaction. So I can rest easy knowing I’m experiencing a normal human thing and it’s not all just madness.
I need to feed all of my plants today, which will be a bit of work but they need it. My plant babies are so important to me, and I love all of them dearly.
Hope you all have a great day.
Stay insane, friends
