Bits and Pieces

Up at 4 AM today after 3-4 hours of sleep.  This not sleeping is taking a toll on me and not sure how much more I can take.

I am now completely off all medicine for depression and I will honestly say that the last week has been rough.  The ups and downs have been HORRIBLE.  I will give it a couple weeks and if not better will make an appointment to see my doctor.  I HATE to have to start taking anything again but if I don't feel better I will.  I sure was hoping that I could get completely off that type of medicine.
Have to go to town today for some yearly blood work.  The doctors office called the beginning of the week and said I could not have any more refills on my blood pressure or thyroid pills until I got it done.  I can't think of anything else I need to do in town so it will be a quick trip.  It takes me about 25 minutes to get there for a 5 minute procedure, a good hour and a half out of my day.  I asked for an early appointment and the earliest they had was 9:50.  I would have preferred earlier but that is all they had.  Boy am I being fussy or what.  Patience is not something I have ever been blessed with and right now I am worse than ever.

On a positive note; my Etsy store is going very nice.  I opened it January 6th and have sold 65 listings which was 40 orders.  I am not making huge amounts of money and can't quit my job, whoops, this is my part time job now since I retired but it is money I am putting back for vacation or whatever else we decide.  I also list several things on Ebay each month and also have done very well selling things there.

Can hardly wait until it gets and stays warmer.  I LOVE being able to get outside everyday and doing yard work.  I would mow grass all day if I could.  Being on the mower to me is so relaxing and rewarding.  You can see instantly a huge difference in what you have accomplished and being OCD I can control how it is done.  I also am anxious to get this years gardens in.  Ron and I also need to get the turkey coop built and get them in their own area.  Thelma should start laying eggs in a couple of months and want them in their own area by that time.  Right now it is so muddy out back and too cold to work out.  I looked at the forecast until the 24th and it does not look promising to get anything done.  Oh well it is still winter and that is to be expected.
