I am feeling good which is both so awesome and so weird! I say weird because I honestly can’t remember a time I’ve felt this good mood-wise for this long. I’ve been feeling good since early December and it is wonderful. As for my energy level, it’s increasing slowly but surely. I took my last dose of the weekly Vitamin D treatment this past week and now I’m back on the small daily doses. If this trend of my energy level slowly increasing keeps up, I’ll soon be normal. How cool is that?!

Life isn’t perfect, of course. There have been a number of things this past week trying to bring me down and stressing me out. After eighteen years of successful selling on eBay, someone decided to throw a fit about something hilariously inconsequential last week which threw me for a loop. I actually cried! I had to realize that it’s not the end of the world and to remember all those successful sales and happy customers. I’m still upset as eBay hasn’t been handling it the way I’d like them to but I’m doing my best not to let it get me down. I also did a graphics design job where I stupidly gave them the images first and waited to get paid later. I’m still waiting to get paid over a week later. The pay is good (when I get it) but the stress of not getting paid when told I would be paid is trying to bring me down. I don’t want to be down and depressed again. I’ll have to figure out a new way to deal with that company in the future. (I was going to announce in this blog entry my employment with that company but, after this payment debacle, I’m not going to right now. I’ll wait and see how this turns out before I make any announcements.)

Bad stuff aside, I’m doing my best not to let it bring me down because I am feeling good and I don’t want that to stop any time soon. The stress greatly increased my anxiety level and I had to get a refill on my anti-anxiety medication for the first time in months. Still, I am dealing with it all and doing my absolute best not to let any of this bring me down. I’m going to keep on keeping on!

In case you hadn’t noticed in my previous posts, I’ve been renovating my Pops displays recently. I wrote about what I’ve been doing the following posts: Pops Renewal Part 1 and Part 2. I’m in the process of writing a third part now as I (hopefully) complete my renovations and such. That reminds me, I need to go practice my painting skills today so I can be ready to repaint that Pop that needs it. (You’ll be able to find out more about that in the upcoming Part 3 of that post series.)

My next big project, which I’ve already started on, is Project Cleanup. I need to cleanup and organize all three of my rooms. I’ve started work on this a few days ago but there is much, much more to be done. I really let things go for far too long (about three or four years) and now I’m paying the price. I’m too ashamed of how bad it’s gotten to post any “before” photos but I might possibly post some “after” photos. We’ll see when the time comes. On the bright side, I guess it’s good exercise to be picking up and moving so much stuff. Here’s hoping I burn more than a few calories! I just need to remember to stretch before working on this. I pulled some muscles picking up stuff the other day and now my arms, legs, and back are hurting. *ouch!*

After Project Cleanup is done, I may do something crazy like repaint my rooms. We haven’t painted them since 2002 and it’s really starting to show. Maybe some new colors would continue to brighten my mood. I like the thought of painting my bedroom in a bright shade of cerulean blue. I like the current dual colored paint scheme in my office so I may keep that but change the colors from pastel lime and powder blue to… I don’t know! I’ll need to think about it more. I still have to finish Project Cleanup before I can really start thinking about painting anything.

That’s it for now. Bottom line is, regardless of the shit being thrown my way, I am feeling good and I look forward to that continuing for a long time to come. I’ll see you next time and thanks for reading!
