  • Mood:

I think my drugs just kicked in.

I have had the most amazing day! Woke up today feeling bleurgh but got on with life anyway - and look what I've done!

  • Work for money (1 hour).
  • Emptied the clothes drying rack & put the contents away.
  • Loaded up the dishwasher & set it running.
  • Put a load of laundry on.
  • Folded up the entire contents of the laundry basket so that later in the week I can just pull out a pile & bung it in the washing machine.
  • Emptied the dishwasher (assisted by meeping).
  • Made dinner for 4 people (assisted by gerwinium).
  • Put the clean, wet laundry on the clothes drying rack.
  • Hoovered the bathroom, landing & half the bedroom.
  • Tidied up the front room - it's still an expletive deleted tip, but you can see floor and table now!
  • Hoovered all the accessible bits of the front room floor.
  • Sorted out a load of video games to sell on eBay.
  • Filled the recycling bin. (wuzzie put it outside).
  • Talked to artremis on the phone.
  • Filled in my accounts book so it's up-to-date.
  • Did 2 invoices for the tuition agencies, wrote the cheques & envelopes, ready for wuzzie to take to the post tomorrow.
  • Wrote all the information in my paying-in book so I can just take it to the bank tomorrow without needing to faff.
  • Photographed all the stuff for eBay.
  • Had a shower.
    and, most excitingly of all,
  • Completed three songs on the Insane mode of Amplitude for the first time ever!!


I know it might seem weird that I'm spelling out every stage, so Emptied the clothes drying rack, Put a load of laundry on and Put the clean, wet laundry on the clothes drying rack are three separate items, but on a bad day, each of those would take one of my metaphorical spoons.

I have something of a confession to make. I think that I must have stolen several other people's supplies of spoons. If you have been exhausted and apathetic all day I'm sorry! I'll give the spoons back as soon as I have some spare! On the other hand, maybe a bunch of you were hoping and praying that I'd have a pain-free day one of these millennia, and if that was the case - thank you. I enjoyed it.

The reason I've put Completed three songs on the Insane mode of Amplitude for the first time ever in bold is that for several weeks now, I haven't even had enough concentration to be able to play the game, let alone get half-decent scores on vaguely difficult songs. Today I sat down and played REALLY DAMN DIFFICULT songs fairly easily. (Yes, my scores sucked - but I completed the songs!). It is exactly 2 weeks since my antidepressant dosage went up - it looks like it's actually had some effect. Hooray!

I'm happy :) Even if I have a totally crap rest of the week, at least I got a lot of useful things done today.
