Gold Star

My gold star for the week has to go to ginger candies. For three days I has such a sour stomach that I went home early twice and worked from home once. I tried all the home remedies but chewy ginger candies were the only thing that gave me relief. I’m feeling better now but luckily I have a leftover supply for the next attack of sour stomach.

My demerit is for allowing my sad mood (and upset stomach) overtake my healthy routines. I allowed myself to justify not keeping up with my household chores and blogging schedule. Not only did this put me behind where I want to be, causing me to have to play catch up, but also it only served to deepen my sad mood. Rather than getting up and doing things that I know will help me get over my funk faster, I let myself wallow in feeling blue.
