Today I Love Feeling Somewhat Better

pie fixings and coffee
It’s an ambitious day

Today I love feeling somewhat better, or betterer, or besterer than the way I felt yesterday. I love that no news is good news and I love that there is little likelihood that the malady in question is the one that has swept the globe these last few weeks and months. I love keeping myself busy and this day is no exception. I love that I have plans to bake more things than I am likely able to bake in a day. I love that we are making plans for the weekend and they do include negative test results so come on Ontario lab result reporting. I love that my head is still fuzzy at times and my nose still causes me to sniffle, because I love being reminded to look after myself. I love that the fuzziness and sniffles are not really much of anything and no matter what I have I suspect I have only a light load of it. I love that home made bagels were spontaneously delivered here yesterday, that’s some pretty good delivering. I love that I’m contemplating payback as no good deed should ever go unpunished, but again, this would require a negative test result first. I love how simple it is to bake something great.

Today I love that I may cut the back yard lawn today on top of all my other crazy wild plans for filling in every spare second of my time. I love that we have the ability to walk around our downstairs like a circuit or track and last night when we discovered we were very short on steps we fired up the Wii and got it set up for 18 holes of Wii golf and walked the circuit for 200 steps between each hole and before you know it we had both attained our step count goal for the day, and I slept very well, thank you.

Today I love people moving closer to home when they’ve been away for a while. I love that my cousin Michael, though still not completely conscious, is moving to the hospital where his home is and his immediate family will have him so much closer and with a little luck might be able to catch a glimpse of him, and he of them. I love that, though still in somewhat of a fog, he has managed a couple of thumbs-up gestures when asked and that is very encouraging. I love that we have reconnected, though only via social media, after years of wandering our separate paths and I love that perhaps with a little luck and some time at our disposal we might all meet again here to talk about parents and past times and current connections and future plans, that would be good.

Today I love drinking coffee while I contemplate whipping up a couple of pies.

Today I Love Feeling Somewhat Better

Kelly Babcock

I was born in the city of Toronto in 1959, but moved when I was in my fourth year of life. I was raised and educated in a rural setting, growing up in a manner I like to refer to as free range. I live on the traditional lands of the Chippewas of Nawash in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or 7 generations and my First Nations friend's families go back hundreds of generations. I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 50 and have been both struggling with the new reality and using my discoveries to make my life better. I am a freelance writer and I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about living with ADHD and one that is a daily positive affirmation that acts as an example of finding the good in as much of my life as I possibly can.
