Two more gifts to buy and I’m done with my Holiday shopping.
It’s been a hectic year but the Lord is turning things around for his glory. As he always does.
•This past week has been a lot of family fun. We started baking and watching Christmas movies together. We see also going through the Under the Dome series with my three teens. They are so in to the storyline.
•We will be heading to the Mall tomorrow to check out what’s new and then find it cheaper online. 😁 It’s just fun to browse.
•My best friend is coming back from Texas at the end of the week. She’s been gone for a month. Then In two weeks, we will be off to Pennsylvania for a Thanksgiving get together with some old friends. We have not been up that way in years and are really looking forward to it.
•The weather here has now dropped to the 20’s. We got some flurries earlier but that is about it.
Time to break out all the winter coats and attire. I bought myself four new sweaters this season and a pair of cashmere gloves. I’m really making an effort to look put together again. I feel as you age, you tend to slack off with whet you wear, and in return, it makes you feel lazy in other areas of your life. Working at home does not require me to get dressed up, do I generally throw on some yoga pants and a tee. No shoes or makeup. I’m trying to find a balance.
•I have been so much more productive since changing my ADHD medicine. My doctor doubled it completely. It has been a full month now and I have pleasantly surprised. It is hard to believe that one can feel this good.
I was taking one that just took the edge off and made me tired all the time. But after much prayer, I decided to give something else a try and I’m so had that I did.
I remember in third grade a teacher told my mom that I definitely had ADD, but my mom disagreed, and that was the end of that.
That said, I’m glad that I was not put on this medication at such a young age.
I think that is when the body has more side effects. Not to mention that a child’s brain is still developing and then adding a medication that messes with the brain…
So I’m happy to have made the decision myself as I’m adult.
That is basically my life update for this week.
Everything happens for a reason, and I’m trying to focus on the bigger picture to see what the Lord has planned next.
