Daily 5 - Day 209

To be honest, the last thing I feel like doing right now is coming up with 5 or more things that made me smile or that I'm thankful for tonight.  Mostly what I want to do is bawl my eyes out, and wallow.  Deeply and miserably.  Since that doesn't seem like a productive option, may I present, 

Today's Daily 5:
  1. Blackberries and raspberries as part of my supper
  2. Skype chat with A. tonight.  Was so good to catch up a bit. To share what's going on in our lives, the fun stuff and the challenges.  We know the questions to ask, and since our time is precious, we talk about the important stuff, celebrating the good and promising to pray for each other through the challenges.  (Definitely having one of those, all the people I love and who love me live way too far away moments, though.)
  3. Managed to arrange a ride to house church for Thursday night - doesn't seem like much, but in my current carless state, that ride is a lifeline, because it lets me be at the house church gathering that I've come to appreciate so much.
  4. Got through the day without melting down, even without my supplements.  That's a pretty big victory.  (It also helps to know that part of how I'm feeling right now is because I had a third of what I normally take in the supplement that deals particularly with anxiety and mood regulation.)
  5. It felt so good to shower tonight.
  6. Sort of managed to keep the obsessing about a particular, hard situation/conversation at bay.  Sort of managing that is a victory for me.
  7. using the pillows my roommate left me.  hers are much nicer than the ones I had been using.
  8. Caught up on "The Amazing Race" online tonight.  Totally cheering on the cowboys - loved the line from one of them in the episode I watched tonight where they found themselves outside some strip clubs in Germany, looking for a clue, and one said to the other, "We ain't in the bible belt no more."  Made me laugh.  Plus, I couldn't believe his cowboy hat stayed on when he bungee jumped.  Now that's a tight fitting hat!
  9. still really enjoying the audio book I've been listening to, though it's challenged me a bit at points.  I'm nearly done now (will likely finish it up tomorrow) and then I'll post about it.
  10. Got a chapter read in the book I'll eventually be reviewing here.  I'm slogging through this one, and it always feels like an accomplishment to mark another chapter off the list as I count down towards being done.  Let's just say that I'll be picking a shorter book for my next free review, just in case I manage to pick another, um, "challenging" read.
  11. Oh, and bonus - Banana cream pie.  So good.

Oh, and while I'm not watching TAR right now, I love Jeff and Jordan who are on it (from another show) :-)
