Sleep, books and an appointment

1. I enjoy the first restful sleep in weeks, and wake with little neck pain. All thanks to a new, extra-firm pillow. It's amazing how it's often the little things that matter.
2. After weeks of not reading and feeling restless and antsy as a result, I place a reservation at the library for several books. The long weekend shall be spent immersed in other worlds.
3. I get an email confirming a health appointment in a few weeks. A little bit of anxiety rolls off my shoulders.

Recovering, some cash and peppermint tea

1. I wake up a little breathless, but by the time I head into the office, I'm feeling quite a bit better than I have in the past few days. This flu bug is a tough one but I think I'm finally getting the better of it.
2. First day back at work after the long Christmas weekend, and I'm running late. There's no choice but to take a taxi...thank goodness I happen to have some cash in my purse.
3. A nice cup of hot peppermint tea soothes and calms me as I start the work day.

Ill, gifts and Christmas packages

1. In a month where I've been ill almost every week - and scared and anxious because of it - I'm thankful for the feeling that I'm recovering and that things might actually be OK.
2. Holiday gifts await me on my desk as I step into the office this morning. I spend a happy half hour opening them and thanking colleagues.
3. I get news that the package I ordered for a friend has shipped and is on its way. She'll get it in time for Christmas.

Sunday tea, migraines and weekends

1. After many months of silence, I text a dear friend to see how she is. We end up arranging to meet for tea on Sunday.
2. My migraines seem to have gone away. For now at least.
3. It's the weekend so there's time for afternoon naps, reading and catching up on all the TV I've missed this past week. Criminal Minds, here I come!
