Waking Up At 7 AM On A Saturday

Today ended up being one of those days where I accomplished quite a bit... my typical Saturday has me waking up early for a short time period and then going back to bed until almost lunch.  Which leaves my day short and I rarely get anything done.

Well, I woke up... Valentina came in to cuddle with me and then I just decided out of the blue to color my hair, have a shower, go shopping to two stores, did two loads of dishes in the dishwasher and did a load of laundry.  I feel good that I completed all this but I know I pushed myself a little bit more than I should have.

It's because I have been so laid up with my leg injury from the medication that everything started falling apart again. I had everything organized, I was on top of it but when I had no strength in my legs to walk, cleaning was far down on the list.  I finally felt like putting out a little effort to get back in the mode, I won't do so much the next time but I am going to put out a little effort everyday, when I did that I had my house in order.

I am pretty sure I won't wake up early every Saturday as I do enjoy sleeping in at least one day of the week.  For a number of years I worked practically every Saturday of my life and these days I am awake by usually 4:00 am from Monday to Friday... I just need to decide to only sleep until 9 am instead of 11:00 am, then I would have two extra hours to spend time with Valentina and do things around the house.

So the great thing that came out of today was that I am now prepared to cook tomorrow, I am making chili, fettuccine Alfredo and I am finally going to make the candy I am sending to my David, I haven't been able to stand for more than 15 minutes at a time for almost a month, that makes it hard to do anything that needs you to stand.

My goal for January is one of course to write in my blog daily, I know this one is later than most but I have finally had time to sit down and write.  Two I want to exercise a little each day and three I want to work at getting my house organized by the end of this month.

I am making small goals, weekly and monthly so as not to overwhelm myself.  As long as I am able to complete these, I will be able to get to the end of this year completing even bigger goals.
