Dog's been sick lately. Won't eat much. Getting me nervous! I worry about him!
Horrible night's sleep. Weird headache gave me lots of thoughts about my own mortality in middle of the night. Felt thankful to wake up, and doing ok this morning, just tired.
Glad you made it through the weekend ok. Was hoping the visit with your parents went well. Sorry about the other stuff though. Hope you feel better soon.
I'm glad my parents care about me and support me. It's just hard because I'm alone so often, it's difficult to function with other people. And I cope by maintaining my own routines, which are hard to break.
I'll hear about how messy my house is (it's fine) and other things I SHOULD be doing, and I'll get less sleep and eat worse. And then they'll be gone and I'll feel lonely again without that time to myself to recharge from the work week...
I'm sorry, Jeff. I can see the conflicting feelings. I wouldn't my parents to visit. It would drive me crazy even though I love them. Plus, whenever my routine is broken, it all goes to ***. Good luck!
I sometimes experience the same. I like to see my parents but they stress the **** out of me. And it's your choice what you do with their suggestions? They probably don't want you to feel lonely ^^
Sounds like there's a lot of awareness there. Would it help to hold that and play with choosing different responses? Ex: I practice an intensity exercise w/ mentor. If SHOULD is trigger, he'll say that. I connect. Talk it through.
We keep going until I have enough resilience and practice to respond to trigger in a way that meets my needs.
Didn't need that last beer, but the bartender gave us a free round, and how do you refuse that? Don't think as clearly when you've had several. Knew it would bother me today. Blah.
I always feel this way after drinking more than I intended.
Can't pass up a free round. At least it's Thursday! Do you have plans for the weekend?
My parents are visiting, which will be nice and stressful. I have to run 19 miles (according to training schedule) Saturday morning.
Ugh, not so relaxing. Wishing you the best!
Sorry you are feeling this way. Hope the visit with your parents goes nicely.
Hope those feelings pass soon Jeff. Have a good day. Best wishes, Noel
The radio show is always a nice couple-hour break...fun to play my music for people. I do wish I brought a beer though...Craving beers.
Yep! Spinning some tooonz!
Glad the insurance went smoothly. What kind of songs do you play?
Mostly indie rock, Manda. Lot of stuff from my collection is older (late-90s, early 00s), but some newer indie music too. I try to do a different theme each week.
Nice! My kind of music.
Jeff, I'm a big fan of indie rock. Do you have any mixes available online? Or drafts of mixes?
Yeah, I know you can listen to Tasha's BF radio station online. Can we listen to yours?
You guys can listen. It streams online and I archive all the old shows. I'm just trying to figure out if I want to share it, because it will kinda break the anonymity here! Again, wish we had private messaging!
Ah, I see your hesitation. Don't feel pressured into anything you don't want to do. We think you're cool for listening to it anyway! =)
Ugh, adult stuff. Good luck with that!
Right? I hate adult stuff. I hate making calls to set things up and deal with questions and payment commitments and all that. I tend to put them off. Bad habit, but easier to ignore hard things, I guess! Blah.
insurance is a pain! good luck! <3
Most adult stuff sucks. I still haven't called to doctor's office to set up a new patient visit & I had another one of this chest & jaw pain attacks while BF & daughter were gone. Going to just keep putting it off.
Guess I miss having family at Easter time, but I should get used to this being alone thing on holidays.
Aww big hugs. Thinking of you xx
I wish I had alone holidays. Too much stress. But maybe I would say different if I was actually in your shoes. Without blister of course. Those hurt! Hope it heals soon.
Thanks pandas! It does hurt, Manda! But it will go away soon...get 'em pretty often, I guess. wet, muddy socks to blame, I think!
Yeah, I'd blame it on anything that involves mud. Yuck. I hate the stuff. Luckily I have one pair of trail shoes I don't mind getting mud on, but I have to look like an idiot & kick them all around & shake them in case a spider has crawled...
...in because they are kept in the garage & there are lots of spiders in the garage. Sometimes big, nasty ones. *shudder*
I am ga that
I am glad that you ran 20k race today
Thanks, pandas! 20k feels short (I'm training for marathon and 50k), but this one was really hard. My feet are all blistery, but still was a good time! I was anxious about it, but it was a fun race!
20k is definitely a big deal. Well done, not many of us could do that (and I'm actually fit)
Woooohoooooo+!+ I wish we could go for a run together!!! So proud of you for managing. Xx enjoy your beer and food!!
20K is amazing! You deserve many drinks & good food. Well done, Jeff!
'We'll done, J,' says panda sitting on furry bottom chewing bamboo.
Yes, I echo, Love. BF & daughter call mine soggy buns because all I do is sit all day . =(
Ha! Thanks, pandas! I appreciate all your support more than I can express!
Happy weekend to you too
Good luck with the race Jeff, let us know how you get on. Best wishes and Happy Easter
You'll do great, Jeff! Hope you have fun & enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Goodluck and have a good wkend
Go you good thing!
Thanks, pandas! :)
Good luck and enjoy your race!!
Good luck Jeff!! Enjoy the race x
Good luck with the race!
