Well, my most recent attempts at being more organized are failing. Granted, it was one of the weirdest weeks I’ve had in a while which didn’t help. But still, I didn’t accomplish what I wanted to, though. This week is a new week, though, and I’m working hard to keep my ADHD issues from getting in the way. Not sure if I’ll make it, but if I don’t try, I know I won’t. I am proud of myself in that I managed to beat back more of the clutter in my house this weekend. I have determined clutter happens when three ADHD people are all living under one roof. As I mentioned, though, more of the house is de-cluttered and I don’t do too bad at keeping it that way. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that as the de-cluttered bits expand, I’ll still be able to keep up.
I had another hint that my stress levels have been higher, and my week was weird last week. My headaches are back. I ended up with one for two days straight this week. Gotta love cervicogenic headaches. As soon as my neck and upper back muscles tense up, here come the headaches again. I’m hoping my go-to yoga routine will be enough to loosen them back up again, or it’ll be back to the chiropractor for me. Which wouldn’t be a bad thing. It’s been several months since I was last there. I want to beat my old record, though. I went nine months without having to go in because I could manage the cervicogenic dysfunction that triggers these headaches. My trick is my yoga—which I have not been as consistent at as I need to be—and the hot tub while my son is in swimming lessons. Then life seems to be good.
My son and I are trying an experiment. We were at a local dollar store, Five Below for those of you who may recognize it, and I found a couple cute plantar kits. The one I bought for my son is a miniature tin wash tub with a sensitive plant, mimosa pudica. I figured he would get such a kick out this one if we can get the seeds to grow. My plantar is a white ceramic skull with a couple cactus seeds. I’ve never tried to grow a cactus from a seed before, so this could be a rather interesting experiment. If it works, I’ll post pictures. Otherwise we’ll move on to find other things to grow in these planters.
