Today I took a friend out to lunch, tried out a new restaurant.  (This week was my turn, next week is hers!) The food was great, the service spectacular, and we had a grand old time.

Today I cancelled Grey's class.  I was too exhausted to even understand the lesson plan I had prepared for her, dropping and reversing words constantly.  So I cancelled.  She was totally okay with it-- her first words to me this morning were "Are you okay?  You look tired..."

 

Grey is a blessing to me, and our classes are a blessing to both of us.  And next week I'll just have to work her twice as hard!  MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!  *cough*  'scuse me...

I recognized when the pain & nausea got to be too much with my migraine and, instead of trying to tough it out like I usually do, I let myself take my meds. Then I took a nap. Both were things I really needed to do for myself today.

I realized that going to the day program today would probably result in me either screaming at someone or having an epic meltdown over something stupid and trivial.  So I stayed home!

I managed to stay away from all of the things that stress me out, for a whole day, it's such a relief :) Just need to walk my lovely dog, then I've succeeded, a day just for me.

I sat at the table and drew while my dinner was cooking.  And let said dinner sit a while so I could finish what I was working on!
