Crash & burn

When i listed all the things i want to do this week, i was pretending i'm "normal."  Sigh.

I did go to the knitting group yesterday, but not the cooking demo.  Went to the bank, and then had lunch.  (Sizzler salad bar the best - the only - one in town.  Good choices, tho not organic, and the mixed salads have allergy info tho i rarely eat what they've mixed, anyway.  I think if you have a good choice of stuff for a salad, dressing isn't needed.  I never miss it, tho i'm sure their salad dressings are full of stuff i want to avoid, so i wouldn't want them anyway.)  Reading a book while taking my time over a salad is one of my joys in life.  :)

Got pizza for Duane on my way home.  Spent almost all the rest of the day in bed.  I felt like i'd been run over by a Mack truck.  I didn't think i was over doing things, but i was wrong.  

I am almost done with the baby blanket, however.  The art project is also coming along, but i'm realizing that it wasn't a good choice for me, energy-wise.  Too much work with it, while knitting can be done while i relax.  

Ah, well.  I'm spending most of the AM resting, too, for later today.  N is going to come and help some tomorrow, too.

You 've done very well Kathryn.

Nice to hav e Nina come along to help.

How did Duane do in his helicopter training?

Well, I think the fact that you're recognizing when you're done for the day is probably better than pushing yourself to the point of utter exhaustion. I mean, overdoing it to that extent would probably put you out of commission for more days than this, which I know isn't a consolation but I guess I'm hoping it is just a little bit.

Hi Amrita. :) I'm blessed to have Nina come help. Doubly blessed because it is a good thing for her, too. Duane loved the helitac training.

Rosemary! I love the new pic/avatar of you. You are simply so sweet.

It IS good that i can recognize the problem. Part of the problem, however, is that by the time i feel this way it is already "too late." I spent most the rest of Thursday, most of Friday, & much of Saturday in bed. I get frustrated a bit because i usually DO push too hard. But i'm thankful for where i'm at. So many people i know with this are much more limited.
