Better than the alternative - without my mom's house, I'd be spending an entire day using WiFi at Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts and pounding lattes. I still feel way too presssured to get things done though, and it's making the animal crackers and chocolate she has here in the house way too appealing.
I had hoped to get back to morning running today before work - I'm not sure how much running I'll be able to do this weekend while travelling - but I didn't sleep very well last night. Among the issues:
- I had everything on my "to do" list running through my mind.
- I haven't figured out the programmable thermostat in the new house, and it got really hot. Ah, Florida.
- Zelda - our feral rescue kitty - was really anxious about being given free range of the house. She and Kirbi had been living in one room until we completed moving stuff in and out, and we opened the doors yesterday for them to explore. Zelda would get nervous whenever she couldn't find Kirbi and start whining pretty loudly.
|Zelda currently holds the high score in "cat fishing" on the iPad. Maybe I'll put this out for her if the meowing continues.|
So I think I logged about 4 hours of sleep last night and decided to skip the run. And skipping a planned run just adds to my anxiety.
I know what I need to do to get myself off the ledge. Meditate. Eat good, healthy (preferably low carb) food. And remind myself what I've already accomplished while continuing to chip away at the "to do" list.
It just feels so overwhelming right now.
