    Never Ending

    I have been sitting here at the computer for about 2.5 hrs, and I'm not entirely sure what I've been doing all that time. lol I got up at 6 a.m. and by 7 a.m. I took my provigil so I wouldn't sleep all day. I layed down for about a half hour then got up and replied to my sisters email. I had intended to shower and start my laundry by 9 a.m.! The washer was broke yesterday! But here it is 10:05 a.m. and I'm STILL here fiddling around on the computer! I absolutely HATE it when I do this! If I take my shower first, then I usually do better about getting things done instead of getting "lost" at the computer. HOWEVER, lately, that seems like a monumental task! I get so sick of myself sometimes! When will I EVER learn that if I do my morning routine differently, it will affect the rest of my day in a better, more positive way?? Sigh! Sometimes I wonder if there really IS a brain in my head, you know?

    I will not get lost in activities!
    I will not get lost in activities!
    I will NOT get lost in activities!!!!

    Have great day, everyone! I plan to have a better day from this point forward!! Please join me! No matter how crappy your morning has been so far, let's not allow it to ruin our ENTIRE day, OK?

    I do that sometimes too and it sort of sucks your day away. I always end up feeling guilty about it. I hope your day got better for you!

    Hey I often wonder if there's a brain in my head too!
    My day's have all gotten away from me lately, I've been in this funk of anger and sadness...and boredom and frustration.
    I feel so busy all the time that when I'm home I want to do nothing at all but just create a groove in my bed and stay there all day, probably not the best day to spend a day when in reality there's still so much that's needs to be done around here.
    Hope your day got better for you yesterday doodles.
    When nothing's going right, go left!
