karalianne, in the Orange Bracket, played Friday June, 7th for 59 points, following 50% of her 6 rules. She lost 3 life points for missing the following: exercise for 30 minutes at least 3 days a week, get at least 7 hours of sleep at least 5 nights a week, write a scene/edit a personal writing project at least 2 days a week. Her public review of the day was…

Friday I:

1. made breakfast for me and my husband;
2. packed my husband’s lunch;
3. made the tea;
4. fed the cat and the guinea pigs;
5. ate my breakfast while reading my book and snuggling with the cat;
6. finished my book (Acacia: The War with the Mein, by David Anthony Durham – very good, you should read and give it a few chapters as it is a bit slow right at the start);
7. attempted (and failed) to solve the challenger Sudoku in my puzzle book (numbers 1-16 and this was my third try, I think I’m giving up now);
8. started dinner, turned on the dryer, and watered the plants;
9. cleaned the guinea pig cages (Batman and Squeak are now sharing; we’ll see how that goes);
10. ate dinner;
11. started working on the leaflet for Sunday; and
12. put some Asks into the Queue for the ADHD blog.

I finished the book at about 10.00 a.m. and started making dinner at about 5.00 p.m. I took my Adderall at 9.00 a.m.

I am 1000% done with my life at this point.

I’m not sure how to read this report. You mean, you’re fed up?

Hang in there, Janna. This too will change.

And look at all that stuff you did before the book, and from dinner & onward.

Janna, I think you should come here and coach me! Sounds like non-stop get-done. I can’t do Sudoko for Dummies level puzzles so you’re already one up on me.

Janna, if you plea for fruit, we’ll top you right up and give you a little boost. :-)

I really enjoy the Sudoku from http://krazydad.com/sudoku/

I print the hint pages. You do not get the answers from the hints, just a suggestion of which square to try to figure out.
But lately I do the easy ones on the Nook.

Tuesday:

Spent the morning hyperfocusing on reading and my Kobo. Finally got down to business and then along about three o’clock had vicious brain fog (wherein I only knew what I was supposed to be doing because I had a list, I couldn’t follow my own train of thought for more than two seconds, etc.) accompanied by nasty indigestion. I think the hyperfocus in the morning was my Adderall and the stuff in the afternoon was rebound after it wore off. Which is ridiculous considering the fact that I’ve been on this dose since November 2010 and this hasn’t happened before (the indigestion yes, but while it was in my system). Also, if it’s wearing off at 3.00 p.m. after taking it at 8.30 a.m. that is a really short time (6.5 hours; it’s supposed to WORK for 10 hours and be out of your system completely in 12) and I might as well be taking short-acting twice a day instead as it would last longer (about 4 hours per pill, but I can take a lower dose and don’t have to take it in the morning if I don’t want to). sigh Time for a doctor’s appointment, I guess. (Similar problem with hyperfocus on Wednesday but headed off indigestion by drinking a meal replacement shake for lunch. Brain fog not in evidence but still definitely no meds functioning anymore.)

Still dealing with the fallout from the time management issues I had last month. Next week I’m helping my mom with a retreat and so things will get further behind, I’m sure. Mostly feeling overwhelmed but trying to find ways around or through, as usual.

Hey, I have new piggy photos up! That always makes me smile! :) I believe the new ones start here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/karalianne/8920502458/

Sorry you’re having a tough run with the meds and effects, Janna. That’s got to get so very frustrating, even with your excellent around-or-through skills and lists. Hope the doc can help.

The first pic that popped up — Bubble photographed from the top — looked like someone’s hair piece fell off! lol…and then I saw your own braid photos next and thought ’there’s a theme here’. The piggies’ room is so organised! (Would you come for a visit and organise ME??)

karalianne, in the Orange Bracket, played Thursday May, 30th for 107 points, following 85% of her 7 rules. She didn't lose any life points and therefore got 1 piece of fruit for the hard work. Her public review of the day was…

Thursday:

Mixed up some dough for sugar cookies to bake later; need some larger mixing bowls!

Finished the hymn I was writing for a hymn competition. I wrote new music to #519 in the old blue Anglican hymnal. It’s a weird one; great lyrics, but the meter is nasty and it doesn’t really scan. I had to mix my meters, which you aren’t supposed to do with hymns, but I seriously had no choice. Final result is decent. Probably won’t win the competition, but it was fun to get some choral music out. It needs to be postmarked no later than June 1, and then winners won’t be chosen until September or something (concert of winning pieces on October 6). Mom found me two more composition competitions to enter, so there’s another choral piece on the horizon as well as a piece for solo bass clarinet.

And that has been my life for the last little while, too.

Monday:

Ran some errands. Tried to get work done but kept falling asleep. (Sitting up at a table in the food court at the mall.) Took a nap in my car after finding a nice outside location to park in the shade. Did more work at a Starbucks and did much better (possibly due to caffeine). Got groceries. Picked up husband from work. Had dinner at A&W. Church meeting. Home. Watched With Honors. Bed.

Sunday:

Trinity Sunday! Opening (Processional) Hymn was my favourite: #1, Holy Holy Holy! Lord God Almighty! :)

Saw Fast & Furious 6 in the afternoon, then came home and watched Tokyo Drift. That was the third movie made, but chronologically it happens after 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6. Now 7 will happen after 3 and the Easter egg at the end of 6 indicates that it will be absolutely amazing. (What can I say, I like action movies and especially explosions and pretty cars and pretty faces make it all even more fun.)

Saturday:

Writing meet! Had a lovely time at the coffee shop. Finished writing the words to the hymn for the contest. They are bad but they rhyme and there are a few good ones. I’m going to write the tune and then have at the lyrics a bit more, see if I can tweak them at all. And then possibly write alternate tunes to another hymn or two (I can enter as many times as I want, it all just has to be postmarked by June 1).

Didn’t get anywhere near enough sleep the night before so the day was pretty touch-and-go. It’s okay, just annoying.
