I had a peaceful sleep, and I struggled a little bit to get out of bed, which I believe it is because I was up a little bit to late last night. I really enjoy hanging out with Christy and watching movies late, but it is harder for me to get to bed early, because I have a routine when I get home. I always take a long shower, turn my TV on, and try to read a bit, before I really go to bed, so if I get home around 12:30 a.m., as I did last night, then I am lucky to get to sleep by 1:30 or 2:00 a.m.
Of course, Mekong loves it when I lay in bed late. She is all for it. LOL. Luckly, my morning routine is pretty short and it doesn't take much to get me ready for work.
Work was really much normal, as it usually is for Tuesdays. It was semi busy, and I was happy. I like to keep busy. The less time I have to think about myself and my own issues -loneliness, wondering about the guy, etc.
The newest thing I have been doing is putting all my activities on my cell phone's calendar. I think I will enjoy doing this, as it will allow me to focus on my cell phone in a different way, other then wondering when someone is going to text me. I helps me keep busy that way as well. I can put events on my phone like “call my Dad” on Wednesday and Sunday. I have a little schedule for Wednesday already. I am all excited about it. During my lunch on Wednesday, I will do my taxes. After work, I will go to Christy until 6:20 p.m, where then I will go to church at 6:30 pm. After church, I will call my Dad. I have even started to put “Pray” and “Read my Bible” on my schedule as well. I find that this way of using my phone is a bit more healthier for me then focusing on certain old texts from the guy. I really need to erase them. I have been trying to find things about my town that I can be doing either by myself or with Christy and her son. That way my week is more productive then it has been in the last couple months. I am finding ways to fill up my life doing things even if it is schedule like “clean fridge”, it least gives me more purpose and drive, then I had before.
I don't have anything schedule for today, other then spending time with Christy, and reading my Bible, but at least it is something.
After work, I went to Christy's again, but I waited a while before going there. I sat in my car and read for a bit. Since I go to Christy right after work, it doesn't leave for any time to “eating”. Christy has known in the past that I have packed my lunch, so this is a way, I can fake her out in a way, if she tries to feed me while I am there. I have eaten over there in the past, so I don't want to raise concern when she never sees me eat anything anymore. It is away that I can keep my water fasting under the radar.
The 12th day of my water fast is coming up and I am curious how I will be feeling and if I will have to revert of juice fasting in order to continue. I am really determined to see this Lenten Season through, regardless that I kind of drop the ball of my daily read that I was following early on in the Lenten Season. I am not beating myself up about it too much, as something just don't work as well as I would like them to, so I move on, and try to do something else. It is all about growth and learning, so regardless if I fail on doing one thing it doesn't mean that I can't try something else that will work for me.
I wasn't over at Christy's for very long. I was feel a bit run down and I thought it would be nice to turn in earlier then I have been in the last week or so. I went home around 8:00 p.m., which Christy noticed it was early for me. I told her that I really needed spend some time with my kitties, and I probably would turn in early for once. She laughed at me.
When I got home, I got ready for bed and then relaxed for a while watching/listening to a movie and reading a book. I looked through my Bible and read thought my prayer list a bit. I did a bit of praying for those that I cared about. I was amazed on who was on my prayer list, because it had been a very long time since I looked at it. It was hard because I came across the guy and his family on it. I prayed for him and his family (His mother, his son), but it felt a hollow point in my chest, which caused me to stop praying all together and pick something else up to do for a while. It was hard, even thought I was trying to do something productive. I hate that he still affects me so very much.
I even spend a bit of time playing with Mekong. Playing with Mekong consists of talking to her, petting her, and just making her happy. She loves to have her belly rubbed, so I spend a good amount of time paying attention to my lovely kitty. She loved it. LOL I was up pretty late, even thought I was lounging in bed. I thought I would fall asleep early, but I didn't. I didn't get sleepy until around 2:00 a.m. I guess even when I am not around Christy, I still have plenty of things to do to keep me up and busy. At least Mekong was happy that I was home earlier then normal. It gave her more awake time with me. LOL Not that it matters much since she sleeps with me all night as well. LOL
I am finding that I don't like to sleep on my side much any more or my stomach. I don't know if it has to do with my fasting, since in the past, I have found it hard to “settle down” in a good position to sleep, and found that sleeping on my back was the only comfortable spot. It is funny that I get “waves” energy and “waves” of odd-ness during the day. I know it is my body flushing out ketones and getting rid of toxins, it is just weird of they come and go, like I am on some roller coaster. At least it isn't too unbearable for me so far. That is a plus.
