Yesterday I felt great at my 5:30am wake up, a plus for a Monday too! It started snowing and wind blowing around 6am. I trudged through the snow and fed the horse, then work. Yesterday was a particularly hard day at work. Monday’s and Tuesday’s where I clean is a more “industrial” clean as it involves hours of using a shop vac and filling/dumping a string mop bucket countless times. As I worked another 4” of snow came down.

When I got home my hubby said he will be working later. I figured I’d make a nice dinner of pork chops and oven potatoes. With him working later that means I need to go back over and feed the horse before dark. ( Usually he helps with night duty and I do morning duty but he’s been working longer hrs lately so I have been doing night feeding too .)

I fed our bunnies and got geared up to go feed Gray. ( That’s our horse’s name ) My mood generally changes for the better as I go over there but last night I wasn’t having it. All my shoveling had blown back in and then my shovel broke. I fell a few times even trying to get over there.

You can guess what I was saying on my walk over there. 😂😂😂

Dinner was good but I was too tired to clean up from dinner. I watched The Bachelor and went to bed. Well, I think I made a step record for myself in one day. Felt a bit more positive after seeing that and then I fell asleep. Woke up countless times from night sweats and this morning I’m feeling very blah. We are supposed to get another 3-4” starting at 8am. I guess gusty too so visibility will be impaired. I usually leave my house at 8am but I’m going to try to get out a tad earlier to miss it. News said by 1pm it should stop and I don’t leave work today until 2:30pm so I’m hoping my drive home is just fine.

Anyway I am rambling but I plan on turning my mood around. Yesterday was yesterday and since I didn’t drink I know I can turn my mood around. If I had drank I would have felt yucky today and not able to turn my thoughts around.

Have a great day everyone! Thanks for reading my ramble-bamble! Oh and ps-Claire, I have learned where to add pics in! Remember before I would just add them and wherever they ended up, they ended up! 😂🤣

    Oh I’m a little sad about the photos. I loved the randomness!!! 😍
    Glad you felt positive again today though boy, you do have some challenges. Makes me feel a bit of a wet fish for refusing to go outside this morning because it was a bit breezy 😂. You are one awesome lady … I’d have lay in the snow sobbing when the shovel broke. Love you 😘

    • You’re awesome! You cracked me up with the breezy part. I did get to work before the snow started so I’m happy about that. I’m right now miffed at the project I have to do so I sat down criss cross on the floor and went on WordPress. Glad I did! 😍 I did say a lovely random selection of swear words when the shovel broke! 😂 Have a great day, Claire! 😘 Thanks for your great comment!

    I agree with Claire whole-heartedly… I feel a bit of a weather-wimp these days in comparison. Broken shovels are the worst! Sorry not time for longer comment but main thing is, sober feels so much better doesn’t it. For me it definitely does, all factors considered. Rock on sister!! 👯‍♂️💖🙌

    You are tough.
    I’m not sure where you live, but it’s cold and wintery here in northern alberta as well.
    I’m glad I don’t have outside animals! Lol I am a whimp!

  4. Yes, you are tough!
    I sure couldn’t do all of that!
    Take care, Jacquelyn!

  5. Wow there’s snow, and then there’s snow. As everyone else has said…. you’re tough. I didnt leave the house for 3 days in Jan due to a light sprinking 😂😂. You really motivate me xx

    • You make me laugh! We are used to times of getting a lot of snow here! It’s just been tough with little to no help with the horse with hubby working OT. Last year my hubby went away for a couple weeks in the winter and I remember it snowing but not quite this much at once. I had to close this one long gate to a paddock last night and I was pushing on it so hard but I did get it closed. I did feel a sense of empowerment after that. I’ll take it as a good workout. Thanks for your compliments!! 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

  6. Please share your tips on how to insert photos I seriously can’t figure it out! I use wordpress only on my laptop though, not on my phone!

    I love that awareness that since you didn’t drink you will be able to turn your mood around! Hope everything got better! 💕

  8. It did! Getting a new shovel today after work. ✔️ I’m also happy this morning as just 2 more days of work this week! 😃
