I'm not in a very good frame of mind.
Haven't been all week really.
Hot flushes have ramped up a notch or three.
It doesn't help that I know why.
1/ I'm eating too much crap
2/ I'm stressed out and crabby
3/ I'm eating too much crap some more
4. I'm mega crabby cos I'm eating too much crap, which is giving me hot flushes over and over again.
AND MY BLOODY BACK IS KILLING ME.
While we were out grocery shopping last night I picked up some panadol gel capsules... hopefully they are easier to swallow so I can keep on top of the back ache. I shall also check out that link Surrey sent me.
I'm about ready to try anything that will help cos having a sore back is ... well.... SORE!
Something tells me I should be trying to strengthen my core. It's shoddy to say the least, which won't be helping me back at all.
I'm getting a new necklace soon. Amanda has bought me a belcher necklace to hang my two silver pendants off. Apparently the chain I have been using is the wrong sort... she said it is not good for the pendants, wrong shape of links of some such thing.
She should know ... she manages a jewellery shop after all.
*sigh*.... probably somewhere 'safe'... so safe I've lost it!
Today? Might read some blogs. Then OMG, I might actually do some sewing!!!!
I've been saying that for how long? Must be a week or two.
Funnily enough, other shit gets in the way.
NOT reading blogs.
I'm going to slowly make my way through the house, vacuming, washing floors, cleaning bathrooms etc. It's got to be done, the house is a pig sty.
Bex and Dante have gone out with a friend from Playcentre, so I can get on and get it done before they get back hopefully.
I just took 2 gel cap panadol's ... so hopefully my back will hold out until it's all done.
So far this morning I've:
Re-organised the spare bedroom and tidied it up.
Washed and hung out three loads of washing.
Cleaned the kitchen bench and everything on it.
Cleaned the gas stove top.
Cleaned the laundry.
Put everything up off the floors so I can vacum and wash them.
Moved some furniture around.
and.... get this.... it's 11 am and I still have to vacum and wash the floors!
AND.... I'm still in my pyjamas! I could see no point in having a shower, getting dressed and then getting all hot and sweaty doing the housework.
NEARLY DONE.... just the vacuming to go I think!
It's been a long morning.
And pffffft.... I know I'm only doing housework... but a quick hello wouldn't go amiss sometimes all you lurkers. Not feeling the love, nope, not at all.
Lacy, Kelly... say hi to ya Mum. Bex...., Steve.... anyone???
I'm now taking a well earned break, and having a spa. That should help the back for sure.
OMGosh the spa was WONDERFUL. I really enjoyed it, sipping me diet coke and munching on some Caramel Corn.... I shared it with Bex and Dante, so I didn't go overboard on it!
After everything was done, I sat down and watched 2 episodes of Home and Away with Bex, then I tried to have a 'Nana Nap', but that didn't work. I just kept thinking of stuff I'd rather not be thinking about.
So, I'm up and just got the washing inside. It's starting to rain, so I got it in just in time.
End of Day: and the waiting continues on the job front. I'm just about 'done' with the uncertainty of it all.
