    Mundane Monday

    Hi friends and Happy Monday!

    Weather: cold and rainy

    Sleep: 3 hours, Boo!

    Mood: anxious and uneasy

    Plans: My tdoc has me doing this social rythm therapy so starting today I am following a fairly rigid schedule. I have to write everything down in my daily routine and also keep a thorough mood chart. So far, so good. We will see if it helps to make and keep me stable. Praying.

    Hello dahlings

    Weather: very nice, sunny and warm

    Sleep: ok

    Mood: it could go either way

    Plans: I need to call my pain specialist, try to get transferred to the surgeons nurse, ask her to ask the surgeon if HE will please write the procedure report so I can get it done ASAP. If I have to wait for the Dr. to do it, then I have to wait till April. Totally ridiculous. That would be just more days of my life wasted while Im in pain. So we will see how that goes. Thats what I will be doing today.

    Love to all. muahs

    MOnday can suck it as far as I'm concerned!

    mood: bad, angry, grumpy, grouchy, totally and completly aggravated

    sleep: a few hours maybe

    weather cool and overcast, warming up later i think

    plans: went for a jog to try and get out some of my negative energy, have to get dressed and take my son to his science lab for school, take my recycling in so i can have gas money, pick up kids from schools, make dinner and just try and be calm today, i feel just really angry and fed up with everything....ok off to get dressed now

    When nothing's going right, go left!

    Monkey, never heard of social rythym therapy - could you explain it?

    Cookie, I hope you can get that procedure done ASAP! That's so rediculous you having to wait so long!

    Michelle {{{{{{{{{{{Michelle}}}}}}}}}}}}} I'm sorry you are feeling so depressed and grumpy - I hope you feel better soon!

    Weather - looks sunny out there, prolly in the upper 40's

    Sleep - not too great until i finally took something to help

    Mood - not great, btu could be worse. Having a hard time getting going this morning

    Plans - need to go grocery shopping, was going to do some volunteer work at the dentist, but not sure now cus it's getting late for that. Try to stay out of bed the rest of the day
