My day in dot points [Feb. 3rd, 2010|08:29 pm]
[mood |tiredtired]

Just one of those days where I look at how much I've done and go, "So that's why I'm tired..."

* Lex slept until 7:45am! And I was so tired from yesterday, so did I!

* Watered plants, with Lex's help.

* I read a comic while I ate breakfast.

* Did two, half-hour exercise sessions on the Wii Fit.

* Vacuumed the bathroom.

* Washed a load of nappies and a load of clothes.

* Showered.

* Helped mum do her 15 minutes of exercise on the Wii Fit while Lex ate lunch (Helping mum involves picking exercises she can do, being ready to catch her if she over-balances, being someone she can lean on during some exercises, and effectively getting an extra half hour work-out by helping her, while giving Lex more food between exercises.)

* Changed four pooey nappies (total so far).

* Got Lex down for afternoon nap with minimum of fuss (Half a Dr. Seuss book, Pertwee's Venusian lullaby, and the Brunnen G fight song from Lexx.

* Watched episode 5 of Doctor Who - Ambassadors of Death and made notes for Swancon, etc.

* Watched half of Bourne Supremacy while I ate lunch.

* Made Lex breakfast, lunch, tea, and snacks throughout the day.

* Read several books to Lex.

* Played with Lex.

* Played outside with Lex.

* Brought in the washing.

* Made two loaves of gluten free bread for Sharon, while Lex wrangling.

* Successfully guessed that Sharon's problem with the car was that the starter motor had died. (The car doesn't like Sharon, she slams its doors.)

* Written this post.

I'm hoping to get to watch the other half of the Bourne movie tonight, possibly while I eat tea. I was going to try and finish something for the C6 conbook today (I got a chunk done last night, but it's not done and needs an edit), I doubt that's going to happen. I think tonight may become one where, once Lex is asleep, Sharon and I collapse and eat ice cream. Maybe I can finish the first movie, and watch a second. That'd be nice.

i love those sorts of days where you go "why am I so tired" and then go "ah wait, I did this, this and this".
There is nothing more satisfying.

It's also handy for the times when I beat myself up for not getting things done. Most days I'm still stroke-boy getting by on limited spoons, and basically assigning the vast majority to Lex's needs.

And then I have a day like today, where I had energy and so look how much I got done. When I can do a lot, I do, I'm just so often limited in physical energy, mental energy, or both.

That said, I've now had tea ( a Vegemite sandwiche, I wasn't really hungry) and watched the last bit of my movie, so Yay! I'm very happy with how today has gone :)

But only watched the first 20 minutes of another movie before I (sensibly) went bed.

Very good. Been doing it for three weeks, and the only days I've missed have been when I was in Cooma, and then I at least did basic stretching stuff.

I'm going to do a write up on it in a week or two. But the basic version is, between the hot weather and Lex, I haven't been able to get out and do walks, ride my bike, etc. So this was the next best thing, and it's working out rather well.
