Captain’s Log: Day 8

Today was the first day I’ve felt genuinely good all day (so far). I slept like crap last night, but really well the two nights prior. I don’t know what was up with last night. Time change? Cat biting my elbow?

It’s funny. You don’t realize how bad you’ve felt until you start to feel better. It’s like being sick in any other capacity. Once you start to get over a cold, your body readjusts to normal. I’m trying not to get ahead of myself. I’ve got this right now, I’m enjoying my Sunday afternoon, and that’s cool. It’s difficult to rein myself in, but ultimately necessary. Like everything else, just takes a little practice.

The daily report:

Shower or have a bath: This will happen tonight. I have, however, brushed my teeth. I’ve been washing my face religiously and my skin looks so much better. I’ve given my skin a break from makeup over the weekend. I don’t really pile it on, but breaks are always needed.

Be Creative: I worked more on my novel. I’m also writing this right now. 😛

Exercise: No go so far. Though the weather is finally nice, so I may go out for a walk or even a jog. Last night I cranked up some music, danced around the room, and scared the hell out of the cat in the process. I guess my moves weren’t her style.

Reconnect: I’ve started counting texting under this category. The goal was to reconnect with people I don’t talk to regularly. I’ve put several people on that rotation. It’s not the ideal scenario, but it’s better than nothing. When some of my friends live halfway across the country, I can’t just up and invite them out for coffee.

Today is a good day. I like good days. Now time for my obligatory Sunday afternoon nap chased with kitten cuddles. May everyone enjoy the rest of their afternoon, regardless of what your internal clock is telling you.
