Need to watch myself today–I was up late supervising the slumber party last night. We didn’t get to bed until close to 11. I normally go to bed around 9. But I don’t think I was awake long enough to get hypomanic or manic today. We have a quiet day at home planned for today, and we’ll have to see how that plays out,. I may try to nap this afternoon to catch up on the two missed hours. Those of you with bipolar know how important sleep hygiene is. Hopefully if I do get high energy I can channel it somewhere useful
Put together an awesome day of shopping yesterday. Bob and the girls went and bought Hallmark ornaments at half-price in the morning, and I scored a London Fog animal print mid-length coat at Belk’s for only $50, which I had in gift cards. So it was a successful day.
Have a project due for a local magazine I used to write for–Mississippi Christian Living. I asked if they would take an article on my bipolar experience, and they agreed. So I will write up a piece for them and send it in soon. I pretty much know what I’m going to do–I just have to write it out. Another outlet to try to reach the Christian community about this disorder and what it means to people. I’m excited for the opportunity.
I also need to redo my syllabus for my Comp II classes. We have a new book–I’ll use many of the same readings, but I have to change the page numbers, etc. for the class schedule. So that’s another project between now and New year’s.
So time to face another day. Hope it’s a good one for all of us.
