Internet and Batching

Hello, Readers!

So, I’m running a test on this blog to see if maybe my internet in the back office is the reason why I’m having so many issues with WordPress. I’ve known that it was bad back there for a while, but haven’t yet come up with a solution on how to fix it. I will have to discuss that with the hubby man.

Not only that, but I’m going to attempt something new with my schedule. I find that I spend most of my days scattered in tasks and honestly, it is pretty exhausting. I jump from one type of task to the next and the constant switching means I’m using different parts of my brain.

Instead of continuing on that path, I’ve made a list of everything that needs to get done in a week and grouped them together by similar tasks. I’m hoping by doing that, not only will I not find myself so much without energy, but I will get a lot more accomplished and have time to spend with the family.

As we are at the end of a week that will begin on Monday. However, today I need to finish up the cleaning spree I went on yesterday. I can’t tell you how great it feels right now. My lower dose of medication allows me to think once more. I’m no longer zombified throughout my day. By being able to think it makes it easier to not only get tasks done, but I don’t sleep all day either. Thank heavens, that was getting more than a little annoying.

Also, I quit taking the other med that the doctor had originally put me on. I didn’t notice any sort of benefits to it at all. I am taking a different type that is supposed to do the same thing. I cannot explain the amount of energy that it gives me, and because you take it 3 times a day, my energy stays great all day long.

Which is probably why yesterday I spent the entire day cleaning closets and scrubbing down my house. It felt so incredible to have so much energy and today, while I’m sore, it is a good type of sore. Not only did I manage to get rid of a lot of things that were cluttering up the house, but I organized things so that others fit in better. I just have a tiny bit more to do that shouldn’t take me more than an hour if that. I could have finished it yesterday, but we all wanted to spend family time instead.

Today will remain a bit scattered as I polish off the tasks I didn’t get finished during the week as I transition into the new way of working. Also, on Wednesday we are getting a brand new dishwasher, which will be fabulous. It has been years since we’ve had a working one in our apartment. While they easily would have come replace it at any given time, it has taken me a lot to get my own mentality under control to be in a position where I am okay with letting them into my personal space.

Maybe next I’ll go get my license back. What?! I know, huh? Most probably can’t even believe I don’t have one, but honestly, that is proof of how low I fell. I didn’t want to have attention drawn to me or stand out. I was perfectly okay with blending into the woodwork.

Now, I’m starting to build up the confidence in myself and my life to be okay with such things. I have to admit, it has been a lot of fun learning about this side of me once more. I’d forgotten how good it felt to be my goofy self, and I am goofy. It’s part of my charm. Haha.

As it is 7 am here, and my entire family is still sleeping…I suppose I shall find something quiet to work on to get my list going. Maybe save the noisier things for later.

Until next time, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.

One thought on “Internet and Batching

  1. Awesome! I need that medicine lol. I was on Zoloft and it made me a zombie. I just couldn’t do it so I dealt with my depression myself and it helps that I have several supportive friends like you that pulled me from the mire.
    Getting your listeners will be scary and freeing whether you choose to drive much or not.
