Where in the World is Leah Peadiego?

I’ve been busy. Doing……stuff. Like making lists of things I want to do. I’ve been just a little manic for the past weeks and I’m just doing and doing and doing. I took some photos to show you, but the light is really bad today, so pretend you like them that way, k? And so, in list form –

FUN FACTS

I had 6 doctor appointments and spent $2154 on office visits and medications in six weeks

While decorating, I spent about 120$ on everything including fabrics for the house and saved money by using a table cloth, a sheet a few tapestry panels and 2 window panels I already owned.

Haven’t had any alcohol since April 26th

  1. Oh, Leah. I need to turn into some version of that for the next 10 days so that I can get my house organized before this baby comes. Right now, I am the opposite. There are six baskets of clean laundry lined up in my bedroom.

  2. We just moved. I will pay you to come to my house. Or pay you to invent a method of mania transfusion, b/c I desperately need some.

  3. Wow, what is going on with you health-wise? I freaked out when I read this: I had 6 doctor appointments and spent $2154 on office visits and medications in six weeks.

    Girl, that sucks, and I totally understand. I have medical issues myself and can relate I hope you are doing better.

  4. I am speechless and impressed and love my lamictal. I have had some naps and planted some flowers and posted like twice while you have been kicking ass and taking names. I love you lady.
    xo

  5. Wow, when I have mania this is never what I do…dang. I need to channel that mania somewhere else.

    This is SO AMAZING.

    I LOVE the neurosis calendar. That alone might be helpful…Hmmmm. Maybe I’ll do this. I’m not sure how, though.

  6. Wow, you have been busy. I thought I got things done in the last month. Your list kicks my lists ass. Glad you posted though. I was getting worried.

  7. can you bring some of that productivity to my house? and your cake plate- mine shattered and yours is cool and I’m making a strawberry banana cake today

  8. Thanks, y’all!

    @The Girl from the Ghetto – I’ve been trying new meds and had to switch to a new psychiatrist and had to have a bunch of tests done, add that to regular therapist appointments and it adds up. I have no insurance.

    @jenB – Love you, too.

    @Ozma – This is new for me. The lamictal is really helping me focus. Plus, I start the day with a short list of To-dos and try to complete one before starting the next one. Sometimes it helps and sometimes not. : ) But writing down everything has really helped keep me moving forward.

    @Fidget – TJ Max!

  9. Is it awful and insensitive to say I wish I had some of that? I have so much to do and can’t seem to get out of my own way to do it half the time…I’m sorry about the doctor visits & all the $$ spent on meds. 🙁
