    Moody Monday Daily Bipolar Post/ Poss. Triggers
    bpcookie posted:
    Hello Dahlings, I usually hate Mondays but not this Monday because its my Birthday. Im 49 yrs old. I look 60, due to the stress of my pain and all the pain meds, but I am very proud of my age now. Since I cant go out to dinner, I will have Chinese delivery for dinner and me and the hubby will watch the new Star Trek movie that he bought for me. wwwwoohhhoooo.

    Weather: not bad. Its been cool in the mornings and evenings

    Sleep: good

    Mood: good

    Plans: I received a birthday card and gift from my hubby this morning. My father calls me at 7:00 to wish me Happy Birthday. He wanted to be the very first person to call me. Im so happy that he remembered and even happier to talk to him while he was sober. Even my dog jumped on my chest, held me down and gave me a birthday slobber kiss. If Im able, I will play LOTRO, perhaps do some crafts, perhaps watch tv or perhaps I will do what ever I want.

    Love to you all. muahs

    ((((Birthday hugs)))) cookie, birthdays are the BEST days! I whole-heartlessly agree you still look 29 to me you foxy lady you! *hubba*hubba* I hope your day is wonderful and Chinese sounds awesome! On my birthday, I spoiled myself like crazy, lol, I think everyone should do that. So you celebrate all day and night love!!!

    So let's see if I remember all this... I slept pretty good, mainly because I finished off a leftover bday bottle of Merlot, but also did dream lots.

    My mood is good today, much improved from yesterday

    Our weather has been quite nice, sunny days but cool nights which may be what's contributing to my better sleep lately

    Plans: go to the gym, run to costco for a fee things I need, clean up the kitchen, try to figure what to have/make for dinner, not sure what bit pretty sure it will include ground beef somehow.

    Hope everyone has a great Monday!
    I had to fight like hell and fighting like hell has made me what I am.
