There is not a lot that’s exciting going on right now, which is fine by me. I have cleaned out my personal e-mail inbox and caught up on my written to-do list for work, trying to create a clean slate for the new year. Work continues to be very busy and I’m a bit frazzled- I need a nap and there’s just not enough caffeine in the world today. I am slowly improving how I deal with stress in general- today is just not one of my better days. It’s amazing how trying to simplify actually seems to complicate things in the short term until the transition is made.
Speaking of frazzled, I think I’m due for a deep conditioning and a trim- my hair has been ridiculously frizzy with the humid weather lately. Maybe tomorrow after work (today if I get out of the doctor’s office early enough).
My feet are very unhappy with me. Over the weekend I foolishly thought that since it was winter the ants would be less active. Silly me- if it’s warm enough for me to pull weeds then it’s warm enough for ants to crawl up my shoes and bite my feet. Only two bites on the left foot, but a major reaction. Go-go overreacting immune system! But the yard looks *much* better now that all the edges are trimmed- go us!
Then Monday I noticed an orange cat in our back yard with an injured leg. I stuck my feet in new shoes sans socks without thinking about it. After much drama that cat was still roaming free and I had ripped open both my heels without realising it. It’s sneakers at work for a few days while they heal. The cat is doing okay- he’s a neighbourhood stray and a few of us are keeping an eye on him. This is why I don’t let my cats out- it breaks my heart.
Lots of crafty things happening over on that side of my blog.
There is a chance that my citric acid sensitivity is kicking up again. I would be very sad about this, because I loves me some oranges! One of the things to talk about with my doc today.
Good grief- I know that I had other things to write about but can’t think of them for the life of me. Ah well.
