There are those days and weeks when it all feels like too much, and I'm there right now. I am not looking for pity, but hope that by getting these things off my chest, I'll feel a little better. And maybe someone going through something will read this and know they're not alone. Because it happens to all of us.
I injured my back, so instead of working out 4-5 days a week, I've worked out 5x in the past month. I've gotten sick a total of 4x in 2013. I am way behind on getting all my tax documents organized.
CrossFit is the thing I looked forward to at the end of a long day and I haven't been able to go on a regular basis for a month. This has been very, very difficult for me. I know I've lost a lot of strength and can't wait until my back is better and I'm able to return to my usual routine. I feel like I've lost a little piece of who I am. I need that workout at the end of the day. I miss it.
I'm sick. Again. Congested, exhausted, and just blah. I am so grateful for the fact that I am generally a very healthy person, but this week, my stupid cold feels like a lot to handle.
This may seem superficial to some, but these freezing temps are really starting to get to me. It's the first day of spring and is currently 17 but feels like 3. This feels like a cruel joke, and this California girl needs some warmth and sun. Now.
I haven't stayed on top of keeping all of my records for 2012, and now I have a week and a half to get everything together for my accountant. My own fault, so I suppose I can't complain. I just don't know when/how to get it all done. Taxes are my enemy.
Then there's work for TEG, graphic design projects, finishing my apartment for my upcoming home tour, trying to schedule a trip to LA (which means arranging care for Buddy, being able to borrow my mom's car etc...), and basic day to day things feel impossible right now. Sorry for being such a downer.
I promise I'll be back to my usual mostly positive self in no time. If I could just regain the ability to breathe out of my nose within the next 24 hours, have my back heal completely sometime soon, and receive a sign that winter will end one day, that would be phenomenal.
And it's not all bad. I am fortunate enough that I can work from bed when I'm not feeling so well. Commuting in this cold would likely be the end of me. Looking forward to date night with Gina, Lindsey, and our boys on Friday. And I have a feeling someone might make an especially delicious breakfast for me this weekend. ;)
Things are looking up already.
