Friday Follow Up: 3 in 30

     I feel like February is taunting me. Not cool, February, not cool at all. Today is the first day I have felt human in I don't know how long. I actually showered AND got dressed! I went shopping and to lunch with my daughter and it was lovely. I 'should have' been doing different shopping but I can't want to care. (Yes, I said it that way on purpose.)

3rd Friday of each month: "Encouraging words"
Let us know what quote, Scripture, or encouraging words got you through this week? 
     How did this past week go? What did you get accomplished? What did you not get accomplished? What do you still have yet to accomplish before the end of the month?

     I think the encouraging words which got me through this week were "What doesn't kill us makes us stronger." Because when I came through the other side of sickness and weakness I would be stronger and ready to accomplish things. 
     The week was mostly a waste, but there is progress. I have done well on the stop eating when I'm no longer hungry thing, except for Valentine's Day. I didn't go crazy, but I did eat more than I would have if I it had not been Valentine's Day. I have continued on the kitchen beautification project and made further progress. I still need to get those cabinets painted and the doors hung. I still need to come up with the solution in the kitchen. I thought I came up with it three days ago but yesterday I realized it was just a fever-induced stupor talking, and my brilliant idea was rather dull. 


  1. I'm so glad that you are feeling better this week!! Slow and steady, remember?? Take it easy and try not to do everything at once!

  2. I totally agree with that quote! I've lived it (quite a few times). And I agree with Aurie...don't try to do everything all at once. Baby steps, baby steps... ;) You're doing great!

  3. You can't push yourself too hard after being sick. I have tried to do too much just when I thought I was better and ended up sick again. We all have another week to get those goals accomplished, don't be too hard on yourself. Have a great weekend!

  4. Don't you just hate it when you think you've had this amazing idea, and then in the morning (or when your fever breaks, lol) you realize it wasn't nearly as clever as you thought?! :) Happens to me lots - I'm REALLY smart at 3am!

  5. I'm glad you were able to have a GREAT day with your daughter. Isn't it amazing how things like Showering AND getting dressed feel like great accomplishments? Being sick is NO fun! I'm glad you're feeling "human" again.

    Give yourself some grace, life happens and what's most important is that we take care of ourselves and give ourselves grace.

    Good luck as you finish out this last week. =)

    Keeping it Personal,
