It’s So Cold!!!


This is south Texas. It is beyond belief that the temperature would be below 0 C and wind chills would make it feel even colder. Even the dog didn’t want to stay outside any longer than absolutely necessary. Now the weather guy is talking about possible snow for tomorrow? Yikes!I have the heat turned up and still I feel cold.Even the dog is lying up against me to keep warm. He doesn’t have a shirt, only a little coat, so putting the coat on him in the house is a little ridiculous. Maybe he needs a little shirt.

I wish it weren’t so cold. I really need to go to Best Buy and pick up the fax machine and go to Kinko’s to fax the stuff to Argosy. I am torn between The Chicago School and Argosy. I think The Chicago School is my first choice is I can get in. Argosy is second and Walden third. I base my rankings on reputation and relevancy. I think going for my certificate first is the best idea.

I slept late again today, but not as late as the other day. I woke a little after 6 a.m. That is late for me, since I normally get up before 5 a.m. I forgot my prayers last night (I think) so I said them this morning before Fajr. I was so tired when I went to bed last night and fell asleep not five minutes after my head hit the pillow.

I bought some things for my office area to help with keeping papers straight and things uncluttered. I had hoped to do some cleaning off the bookshelves or the dining table this week, but it’s Wednesday and I haven’t done anything yet. I’ve actually brought more things down to the living room. I want to do mosaics and I need my meds down here. I suppose I could put them in the cupboard. I also have to go out and get CD boxes (Brenda calls them Jewel Boxes) and something else. More boxes, I guess. But this is just too cold to want to go out and do anything, even the things I need to do. I took extra klonopin this morning because I feel very anxious today. It’s already 9 a.m. and I really haven’t done anything. Maybe I should start to do some cleaning. I did do so cleaning off the counter the other day. So I guess I’ve done something this week. I shouldn’t be so hard on myself, I guess.

I really don’t want to go out, but I need to fax that stuff to Argosy and get to CVS for prescriptions and the bank for money for Brenda. I need to take clothes to be altered, too, but that can wait a while. Maybe I’ll work on the bookcases or the table if I feel better. The allergies are really terrible these past few days. And I feel so anxious lately.
I guess i am almost “in” at Argosy if I have a student number in the campus portal (I have one at Walden, too). I think I’m nervous knowing I will have to take out more money for school. That makes me nervous and embarrassed. I hate to have to call Bart about that. I’ve put off calling until I know how much I will need. I will probably also have to take money for taxes. I am running through this money like water. At this rate I will have to get a job doing something to earn $4000 that I’m allowed to earn under disability. Now I get a call saying my flowers to Sabrina for Valentines Day will have to be shipped earlier because of how they ship stuff. Oh well.

The klonopin doesn’t seem to be doing much good. I am still terribly anxious, probably because I am thinking about all the things I should be doing and am not. Maybe doing mosaics would be a good idea. Maybe it would relax me. Maybe I’ll give it a try. Maybe.

I had more dreams about school but I don’t remember them. I remember the dream from the night before as I was falling asleep last night but now I’ve forgotten it again. Why did that happen?

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
