Mon. 8 Jan. 2007

I unexpectedly had the day off of work today. I was grateful for the time to stay home and attend to my house. I barely got half of what I wanted to do done, but I feel very satisfied about the things that I did do. Among some of today's highlights were vacuuming and eating.

Fall semester was so stressful that I didn't edge when I vacuumed. When you run the vacuum up to the wall there is an inch or two right along the baseboard that doesn't get the full cleaning effect. Edging is going along the edge of the carpet with the vacuum hose (without the carpet beater part) and getting all the dust and cobwebs in the corners. Not having the time or energy to edge has been bugging me for a long time. Today I edged. And I vacuumed really good. (Oh, and I mopped too.) And now I feel really good.

Everyone will be pleased to hear that I had three meals today. Count them: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. They were very small meals ... but they were meals, and there were three of them, and I exceeded my goal of eating two meals today, so I feel very pleased with myself. Don't ask me to repeat it tomorrow. We will just focus on the sucess of today.

Every moment

"Every moment must be different. Different feelings, different happiness, different pain."

The language of my mind

"The language of my mind is insufficient to express the movements of my soul."
