emoticon Feeling a little better today, not good enough to work out, but good enough to not take a nap. The vertigo did a funky number on me last night, we were going to pick up the kiddos from church and everything went wonky. Hard to describe, felt like I was in a kaleidoscope at the end of a long tunnel. Lasted a good minute, then was just plain dizzy for a while. Don't know what to make of that. Hoping it was a one time thing, as I know I would not be able to drive like that. Going to the grocery store this morning and praying all is well.

Crochet class went great! I had only my two best students, which was awesome, made for a stress free class. I even had a mom come in and ask if I would teach her. turns out she crochets but wants to crochet better. I'm like... I'm not an expert just because I teach a class to kids, the basics I can teach, the harder stuff, not so much. But I told her I'd look at it if she wanted to bring it next week and I'd see if I could figure it out. We got to talking. I told her that I'm shy and she looked at me like I had two heads. I just didn't want to sit there not talking so I started conversation. Sometimes having social anxiety really sucks. Okay, it does all of the time, but people just don't understand that when I try to put for the effort, it really takes a lot of energy on my part and then I come off looking like I'm not anxious, so when I say I'm shy or have social anxiety, they think I'm kidding or making stuff up. I was told my personality type was one of the most misunderstood, and I believe it. Because I can come off sometimes looking like I'm not anxious and be just fine, but other times I'm so anxious I can't hold a conversation. It's weird, and I'm sure I come off strange to other people.

One of the reasons I'm cutting down to one cup of coffee:

Today I plan to CLEAN! I need to catch up on my cleaning for the week and get the house back in order! Amazing how quickly the kids can make a mess of things. Mainly I want to declutter. I want to declutter for a total of 30 minutes today. Doesn't sound like much, but I'll do more if I get done with that. It's hard to declutter. I figure 15 minutes in the living room and 15 minute in the dining room. Then if I have time I'll clean 15 minutes in each girl's room. I'm not going to overdo it, I'm going to do like every other hour, nice and slow. Or 5 minutes at a time if I must. I just want to get the house looking presentable again. I don't like when it's a mess. The kitchen will wait till tomorrow. It just mainly has a lot of stuff out, the crockpot, the dehydrator, stuff like that.

This is what kind of dog I want. A golden doodle. Supposed to be really smart and easily trained. DH read about a lady who adopted a 'failed mobility support dog'. I was like, what? What does that mean? The dog learned all the tricks, turning on the lights, opening doors, opening the fridge, he just did them whenever he wanted to, not on command. So the lady had to childproof her home as if she had a bunch of little kids running around because the dog would randomly turn off and on lights and open things and bring her bottles of water or what have you. I wonder if the story is true, you have to wonder with the internet today!

Well, off the the grocery store! Wish me luck!

Hope you have a wonderful Thirsty Thursday, and don't forget to drink your water!! emoticon

    If you're missing your 2nd (or more) cup of coffee, why not try the half & half blends? That's half regular and half decaf. You can purchase it that way or do it yourself. I know that helps with heart palpitations. Can't drink more than 1 or 2 cups "straight", but a good deal more blended. Good to hear you're doing better.

    I am glad you are feeling a bit better!

    Yes the stories about dogs that fall out of the training program are true. I know when I was involved in the service dog training program, the fall out rate is about 25%. But they are still awesome dogs! Since you don't have special physical needs, that may work for you.
    Golden Doodles are a highly sought after dog! They sure are cute! Funny thing, you will know when the right dog finds you. I never expected to find Ringo, and I couldn't be more pleased. We are working on a few issues- like staying out of the bathroom trash and learning to use his "inside" voice. LOL I love that I can take him anywhere and he walks so well on a leash. Although at Pet Smart, I have to watch him, he is a kleptomaniac LOL.. He finds something he likes and just takes it off the shelf. But that is the exception!

    Thanks for the reminder on the water, I haven't been getting enough lately- my bad!
