Some days things get mixed up. It seems like this is such a day for me. I overslept, feel tired and not well:

My new plan for this day follows here:

- One hour to make a budget plan
- Dinner
- One hour to watch a program at Internet
- Make the plans for tomorrow
- When the plans for tomorrow are made, I allow myself to study something that interests me ...

Hope you all are OK, and of course I hope this alternative plan will work for me!

I took out the trash this morning and started cleaning off my workspace. My work area is a big task. It may take me a couple of days. I'm dressed and ready to go to the pharmacy. I'm just waiting on a good time to put my cat up. He's sleeping. Can't leave unless he's gated. I might cook while I wait on him. Hope everyone is doing well.

I opened more packages and cleaned the litter box. I also went to the pharmacy. Today I plan to clean the other litter box and open more packages. I hope to cook something too.

I did everything except "Swish and swipe in the bathroom". I washed instead of shower. The long walk took a lot of my energy, but glad I did it.

Plans for Saturday:

- Swish and swipe in the bathroom
- Put the dishwasher to work while I eat my breakfast
- Gymnastics
- Shower
- Grocery (write a list first)
- One hour of work in the home
- Free to enjoy the weekend

May you all have a good weekend!
PS. I found this: Energising vs Draining Activity
Exactly what I needed. Perhaps it can inspire some of you as well.

I cooked red beans and rice, cleaned the other litter box and opened packages. I also spot cleaned the carpet. I've had a pretty productive day. I'm going to relax now.
