Recycler CI Dec 25 7am


Best wishes to everyone, today! :)

my CI, chronologically: yesterday the 6-Hour Energy Extra lasted 8+ hours, so that is good. That + PA helped me get 90+% of everything done. But, then late afternoon after visiting a friend, I became very tired and never got any energy back. I went to bed around 6pm or 6:30. I did get up at 9pm, & a few more times during the night, but never had the energy to make the jello salad.

6:30am. Up, take puppy for a walk. Feed puppy. Bring hidden groceries to kitchen.

7am. Toss back 1/2 of a 6-Hour Energy Extra. During the year, I don't take 6 Hour Energy that much, but this weekend is the exception to the rule, so down the hatch it goes.

7:30. Stage 1 jello salad is in the refrigerator for a soft-set. I have to wait 10 minutes before being able to add the fruit & marshmallows, so now I'm doing my CI :) Timer going off as I finish typing this :)

8am. Jello salad is in refrigerator. It will be ready in time to have with the meal at 12 noon. Puppy very excited. Puppy knows something is going on this weekend, but isn't sure What. Soon: take puppy to warm, sheltered car so I can do a quick vacuum of the entry-way. (She likes the car 100%, especially compared to being closed in the bathroom, even for a short period of time). I will try to move fast so she won't have to wait long to come back in.

8:15. Puppy was in car for 10 minutes, then I took her for a walk before bringing her back in. Vacuuming entry carpet took 3 minutes, so that is done :) Put borrowed vacuum back in car to return to friend. By the way, puppy is 4 months old. Once a week she rides 3 hours each way in the car to visit Granddaddy, so the car is her friend and she starts taking a nap right after getting in. Now I can rest a bit before taking my shower around 9am. :)


7:30pm. Today turned out good. Jello salad was good. Carpet was vacuumed & looked ok. I didn't take a shower but went back to bed & had a nap before company arrived. I DID put on a clean t-shirt and brush my hair. Everyone had a good time, even though my condo wasn't PERFECTLY clean. It was good enough, thanks to PA being here yesterday and this morning to keep my motivation going. Thanks everyone and I hope you had a good weekend, too!!! :)


Thank you, gals & guys, for being here! :)
