Is “de-stress” an actual word? Regardless, the stress has been bad enough that my PA is flaring and I’m reaching for the scotch for pain relief too often so I needed a stress-free Hallmark Channel and crochet day.
I did take a Xanax to help but only because it’s better for me than a pain pill. So far it’s working but it also helps that I get to watch Jack Wagner today and tonight. I ❤️ the Wedding March series and it’s sad that tonight is the finale. He and Josie Bissett have great chemistry onscreen. And not just this series but when she played AJ on When Calls The Heart.
Last weekend I went out on the golf course with my husband and I’m tempted to go tomorrow too.
I was so hoping to get my second ever birdie but it wasn’t meant to be, lol. BUT… next weekend we’re having a
putting green put in at home which means I’ll be able to practice. 😎 I also lost 20 lbs as of yesterday
so things are good enough that I shouldn’t let things stress me out so much. It’s easy to do though.
Tonight I plan to render an ocean scene and work on this render from last week.

My version of Brave. Rendered in Studio and it was a good way to experiment with multiple d-force clothing items on a single figure. The hair prop is also d-force compatible but I left it as it loaded onto the figure since it already looked exactly as I wanted it to. I'm just really happy with the way this turned out.
I feel like spending the weekend doing nothing but rendering, It's a great escape from... well, the sheer stupidity that's going on right now.
But, we have something to look forward to. Our Mexico trip is booked. We all need to just get away and the plan is to not leave the resort at all. I could really use a week of late breakfasts, cabanas next to the water, drinks and good restaurants. No work... no news... just vitamin D, salt water and some Don Julio and a rum runner in a coconut.

So March is Autoimmune Awareness month. I know I've spammed my Instagram with memes on the subject but even as I do the minimum and simply post a few memes, it's brought a little bit of awareness to what I've been doing lately. I've been down on myself for not feeling up to being the person I want to be. The person I think I should be, if that makes any sense at all. The fact is that it is difficult, at times, to have the energy for exercise, housework, etc. Throw in my ADD and it's no wonder I feel all over the place. I don't always want to go out. I love being at home whether it's enjoying my river and deck or sitting at my computer rendering whatever comes to mind or working on a crochet/craft/writing project. Living above the snowline, my year tends to be half in absolute pain due to the cold affecting my arthritis and half in less pain but still with little energy due to the other half of the year. It sucks.
But.... this is me. I'm going to do me so you do you.
That's it. That's the post. :) #AutoimmuneAwarenessMonth
