Amazing what happens when I feel better.

So, I finally think I’m recovering from canning weeks ago.  Slept pretty well last night, woke up this morning and didn’t even think, just started doing things.  As of 2:30 pm, I have washed, dried and folded four loads of laundry, washed, dried and put away two sinks full of dishes, updated the Tour de Fleece group on Ravelry, and even worked on my room a bit.  This is quite a change from the last several weeks, during which time I was too sick, fatigued, and in pain to wash a dish, cook anything grander than scrambled eggs, or focus enough to read email.  I even had the energy to nag the kids about their chores. Oh, and I’m dehydrating onions too!  (Jola Gayle, you could have warned me about the fumes!)

The only problem with all this energy is that I want to use it while I have it, so I overdo and set myself up for another crash.  I feel so badly about all the times I can’t do things I want to make up for it.  Balance, again.  So hard to find.  Especially when there’s so much that needs doing.  It’s still very hot too; and I haven’t been responding well to heat; it magnifies every symptom I have.  I’m thinking about maybe investing in an air conditioner for my bedroom; while we can’t really afford it this room is the hottest one in the house.  I have two fans going and with the problems I’m having with my ear, I can’t hear a damn thing in my room.   I have to turn the volume up so high to hear the TV it’s ridiculous.

Anyway, after all this activity, I still feel ok; so after this respite, I’m going to head back into the fray (meaning work on the officially declared disaster area known as my room.)  More later, if I’m still up for it; and hopefully pictures of my first bobbin plied!

    How wonderful to be feeling better!! But TRY not to overdo! Balance is A Good Thing …and having one good day every two weeks is just not a happy way to live.
    I hope you make major progress in your room while this good feeling lasts — it would be such a blessing to your state of mind 🙂

    I am also spinning in the TDF on several teams. Climbers, Fluffybottom, Bosworth, Ashford, Schacht, Louet, and Fiber Optic. I’ll check in on your Team to see what you are spinning. Too bad we didn’t have a Sheep Thrills team.

    Jessica, what’s your Ravelry handle? Some how, you’re not on my friends list. I’d love to see what you’re spinning!

    Fumes? What fumes? Didn’t you read Potty’s post about not dehydrating onions in the fleece room? (ducking and running)

    Seriously, however, I didn’t even think about the aroma enough to mention it. I loved the smell of the “roasting onions.” Drying a tray of garlic with the onions on one batch was a bit strong, however.
