You better be good, Monday

I returned to my house and family yesterday afternoon and went to bed at 6:00 o’clock. I woke up the next morning a quarter after 8:00 a.m. Frankly, that’s too much sleep.

I did not sleep well. The pain in my neck and shoulder is still here, although not as bad as it was before, but I’m getting fed up now. I canceled the last two massages but I will go on Wednesday because I think part of the problem is my back is really tight. I will continue to stretch, maybe up the time a little bit, and hope I can finally get rid of that pinched nerve or whatever is challenging me. If by April things haven’t improved significantly I’m going to book a physio session.

Intermittent Fasting for health and weight management

Thursday was a day of carbs. The entire week was carby, the worst kind too – white flour and sugar – and I knew that bad feeling would hit me soon.

It did. Thursday night I felt bloated, heavy, ugly, icky, lethargic, itchy, tired and moody. Not to mention my stretchy leggings were feeling snugger than they should.

Challenges during stay-at-home lockdown

Disclaimer: I’m going to describe a family situation that irritated me. I’m only doing this because Toronto’s strict lockdown measures are getting us all beyond frustrated, plus the weather has turned much colder making outdoor activities a little less enjoyable, meaning we spend even more time inside together. I’m just saying, we’re all feeling the strain of being together so much in this small house for so long (10 months and counting). Read with a grain of salt. Don’t pity me, I’m fine. And be nice with your comments. 😉

The look of surrender aka frustration aka acceptance

If you’ve read here a while then you know I like to write fiction. Some of you know I write erotic/romantic fiction. Lately, I’ve been on a roll with a particular story that is now into Chapter 10, and I’m not done.

I write at the dining room table facing the open concept kitchen in front of me. The living room is to the left of me.

The family is not here for the most part – the husband teachers his college students in his basement office, the kids are plugged in to their virtual classrooms in their basement rooms.

I take those moments when they’re schooling to focus and write. All good so far, right?

A perplexing matter to occupy my brain today

I returned home to the family today (after spending a few days at mom’s) with a car full of groceries.

The puppy went berserk. 😄 Good thing I left the bags in the car at first, since I was getting mauled immediately upon entering. 🙄
