Lethartia

Lethargy and inertia. There are so many things I should be doing, but I just can't seem to get up the energy or motivation. I have laundry in the wash that needs hanging but don't want to bother. I have laundry hanging that needs to be put in the closet. I have a lost checkbook register I really need to find. I have coffee that wants heating. I have half a stack of Christmas cards but no address book. I have three presents to wrap, a new CD to rip to iTunes, a kitchen to clean, recyclables to take out, cat vomit to wipe up, three books started - my choices of activity are endless. I even have to pee. Yet I'm still sitting here with the television muted on some show I don't even recognize and staring at the computer semi-dazed fighting the urge to play another round of Word Challenge on Facebook. I'm not even scoring well at that. Possibly because I'm trying to use words like lathaertia.

I'm sleepy.

EDIT (case you're curious) clothes hung up and put away, coffee drunk, CD ripped, tv off, presents wrapped, and cat cleaned up. So partway there. I'm going to bed.

I have it stuck in your Christmas bag so that I won't forget it. :) I have to put the Catechism stuff in there, too. :) I'm burning the Weezer CD Mike got for me for Christmas. Oh - and Monkeys is ripping that other disk I told you about right now! Yay! :)

I can't tomorrow. :( I'm going out with my mom. We tried to go out today, but her heart freaked out. Of course, that freaked me out :( She's doing better now, but I want to keep an eye on her tomorrow PLUS we want to finish what we didn't get a chance to do today. I hate being reminded of my parents' mortality. Hate it hate it hate it. I'm still a bit on edge right now. I've called her twice tonight, and she was fine both times, so I'm sure it's okay. I think maybe it was us starting the day off with coffee and donut (Krispy Kreme!) plus us not eating any real food until noon along with her adjusting to a change in her medications. She got a bit better after eating and taking aspirin. By the time I left she was almost back to normal. Tomorrow I'm making sure she eats. :)

But I do want to go shopping with you - I want your advice on something!! I can meet up Wednesday or Saturday - are you free either of those days? Oh, also Monkeys wanted to know if we were going meet up for dinner before or after mass on Wednesday. :)

I'm free wednesday during the day time, but I have to be at church by 6:30 for the 7:30 mass. (The choir has to pratice and stuff.) If you wanna meet up around 5-5:30ish for dinner somewhere that'd be awesome. =o)

I'm sorry to hear that about your mom. I hate it when stuff like that happens. =o( I hope she's better today!

Today was a MUCH better day. I just got home. I'm sooooo much happier tonight!
It's weird - her heart just stops beating then starts up again in fits and starts. It's so scary. It used to happen a lot, but the doctors couldn't really do anything about it except tell her to take aspirin. Now they finally found some medicines that keep it more under control, so it doesn't happen as often. But you feel so helpless when it does AND there's always the worry - is this the time it's not going to start back up again?
But today there was no problems :) :) :)

Yeah, my mom gets the heart racing thing sometimes. It worries me when she can't get it to slow down. =o( I'm glad your mom is better today!

Yeah, lets do dinner at 5 before church. Where you wanna go? Sushi?
madladyred
Dec. 24th, 2008 04:03 am (UTC)
cool!! monkeys is good for anything. I am *always* up for sushi. always. i also have a $25 card for cracker barrel. I think sushi is probably faster and easier. :)

thanks!! today was an awesome day. she was feeling great. i'm thinking (hoping) it was food/coffee related. i forget she's approaching 70 sometimes.

sorry your mom gets it, too.

i hope we never do!

Want to do dinner at 5 so that we don't have to worry about getting you back to the church in time? I always worry about some odd delay. Monkey's has a doctors appointment tomorrow morning (his toe - he might have gout??? or it's broken???) so I'd want to go after he gets back to find out what's wrong with him. his appointment is at 8:30 am, so he should be out pretty early. what kinds of shopping you need to do? there are two things i want to pick up, but i can even get them next week, so i'm pretty open on stores.

i want to have an art project day, too. I want to paint something. i don't care what really.

oh oh oh - but if Saturday or Sunday would be better for you so that you don't have any pressure to be back by a certain time, we can totally do Sat or Sunday :)

I got brandon and caitie and brendan something today, but I still need to pick up a few more things. (I need to go tomorrow if possible, cuz I need to get something for my dad before Christmas!)

aha - what's a good time for you? i'm good for any time, really. Monkeys will call as soon as he gets out of the doctors office to let me know what they say if you need to leave earlier. i'm not sure quite when he'll get out. he was thinking around eleven, but of course you never know with doctors visits. so we can go earlier. i just need to make sure i have my phone. :)

i want to pick up a little something for catie and brandon, too. any ideas would be appreciated.

Gimme a call when you're done with the Dr's office. We can shoot for 11, just let me know how it goes with John. =)
I got Brandon a gift certificate to Sonic, cuz I think he eats there alot. Caitie likes anything to do with jewelry or makeup. She also loves anything camo colored.

cool! i'll call you if he gets out before 11, otherwise 11 at my place? we can go in my bug to give jugs a rest. :)

a little orange kitten came into our house today. :) we played with her for a few minutes before putting her back outside. hopefully she'll come back tomorrow so you can see her, too.

Amen. I'm not taking the time to list all the things I'm NOT doing that I should be doing... but the list would be impressive.
madladyred
Dec. 23rd, 2008 02:32 pm (UTC)
LOL yeah, i am sure I could have added more to the list, but i couldn't even get up the energy for that. i sat here in front of the computer for an hour before i could even post anything. i just kept failing at the word game. but at least i was failing with higher scores than last week. it's a cruel game - so far my vocabulary skills have been compared to a baby, a mime, a hermit, a school yard bully, and a drill sargeant. as you can see, I am getting better. I had one fluke of a good game and my official posted score for others to see is "cheerleader" - but i'm still really low score as compared to some of the others. Mine is 6000+, the other two are 9000+ and 24000+. How on earth did she get 24000?

anyway, i'm still not doing anything on my list. i'm going into town. :)

ugh , i know the feeling that was me sunday all day
first off i woke up late .... super late! ..... like 6pm late
no one was online or responded to my emails .... i had stuff to do but i just sat there all depressed and shit about i don't even know WHAT!

i think this year's just taken a shit loads out of most people and the "tiredness" was just inevitable!

so i watched "christmas story", "christmas carol" 1951 + 1999 version (1999 version is with patrick stewart so how can i not love it!!) ... each film twice!

so that was sunday! - and right now i'm awake at almost 3am with my stomach all cramped up posting this

i could really go for some whataburger right now : {

I haven't seen the Patrick Stewart one!

I actually *get* a little depressed when people aren't online at the same time as me (which is crazy, huh?) even though I know that's not how this interwebs thing works.

i'm so glad you like whataburger. :)

patrick stewart version is seriously kickass
it's made for TV but the atmosphere and setting is so well done you forget it's a low budget film ..... plus of course the acting is kickass

i hate being online when no one else ... so i understand

i like whataburger ..... some days i just crave it like stupid for which i have no reasonable explanation .... hehe ... i just go out, get it and eat it ... like i did 3am this morning :D
