Brr… it got cold this morning. I snuggled up with both the pets and enjoyed the cold and these drinks.
My drawing is still terrible. After learning that I was an INFP, I decided to revisit my artistic (lack of) skills. Nope, still don’t got it. —>Redirecting energies…— I’ve read that not all INFP’s excel in the normal creative arts, that their energy is better directed at unique creative energies, for example… (the memory stops there.)
After I gave my best shot to draw a picture for my mom (that I was actually rather proud of), and then realized it looked – er – less than desirable after sharing it with my family, I remembered Phoebe.
I’ve never really enjoyed making, drawing, or coloring art, anyway. Doing it is fun, but the results are a letdown – for one reason – I HAVE to put it SOMEWHERE!
Goaling to do this:
Discover more classical music. Any ideas/suggestions? I listened to a song recently and realized there is a lot of classical and opera music I haven’t heard and therefore can’t know if I like it or not. There is a lot of classical music that causes my body to stress – a credit to the composer for being able to evoke such emotion through such a medium, but something I would rather not listen to! On the other hand… there is a lot of fun, terrific and beautiful classic music that I haven’t heard.
Came up with this:
…advice. It holds true for me so far. When you are “intuitively eating” and not sure if something is going to be helpful:
If your sugar is low, just eat it.
If you’re gassy, have a headache, or otherwise in bodily distress, think about it and make sure.
This has held true for me so far. I often am wondering if a food is going to help, and have discovered it isn’t worth waiting when my sugar is dropping – I almost always feel okay after eating it. Kind bar (with protein) to the rescue! (and banana and peanut butter 🙂 )
Having to really discipline SP. Being lax on him has let him think he can ignore me. I don’t like it, but I know being strict about him listening is important. The nice thing is that after one hard episode of discipline (usually a “timeout” which is a lay-stay in another room, or a brief show of domination) he is like, “OH! I forgot I wasn’t alpha dog”, and I don’t need to do anything further.
Of course, I am so lovey-dovey with him afterwards that if he were a lesser dog, he could go right back to being dominant. Instead he takes the hint and I can hug him all I want to without him thinking that it cancels the lesson out. Yeah, I am not a textbook discipliner.
It wasn’t today, but it was noteworthy from this week. 😀 A family member and I thought it was awesome!
Am I the only one who gets shaky after a meal of eggs, (only)?
