Straight Outta Spoons: Managing Life as a Spoonie

straight out of spoons

straight out of spoonsThis weekend was my birthday and I received a straight outta spoons tank!  What an amazing time it was!  My best friend sent me this tank and it’s a perfect way to describe me after the celebration.

After traveling, staying out late and having (gasp!) a few celebration drinks I was Straight Outta Spoons!  I just wish I could go through an event without being totally depleted.

With this said, I’ll use my spoons on family, fun and celebrations any day!  It’s the days that I use up my spoons for doing mundane things that gets me really frustrated.

Not familiar with the Spoon Theory?

Here’s how it applies to my life and explanation on how it may applied to yours.

Thank you for all the presents, texts, calls and social media messages.  I’m so lucky to have you all in my life and looking forward to another year filled with joy and discovery.

To Kanye West and the all the media reporting “it’s just a headache” Please stop saying “just” when referring to Kanye West’s hospitalization for allegedly having a migraine.
