Woke up from the alarm and still felt without energy. And that translated into me not writing and not meditating and not writing morning pages first thing. Boo. Which was a mistake because I’m sure I would have felt better if I had done all of these things.
Then breakfast and meditation and knitting. Talking with my husband. Who told me to go and write right away after breakfast but I declined and thought it would be a better idea to go grocery shopping first to get it out of the way.
I walked all the way and went to the hardware store as well to find the right screws for the trellis my husband wants to install for the apricot tree. There is a lot of insulation between the brick of the annex and the plaster which makes it hard to fix anything to it. I did find special screws and anchors but they were quite expensive.
Then the grocery shopping and when I came home and had put everything away it was time to have lunch. We didn’t have to cook because we were eating leftover lasagna and some red beet salad that my husband had made the night before:
And then I had a long list of things I wanted to do before teaching but – the boy and I got to talk about getting him a new rain coat and some other clothes and things and so we looked at lots of ugly and boring rain coats online and the ones that were nicer were out of the price range. I don’t want to buy a 250 Euro raincoat for my 16 yo. son who will probably grow some more. (Though it might be a good idea, if he grows out of it my husband can inherit it. They’re wearing the same size at the moment. But nah, too expensive for us adults as well.)
So there went most of my lunch break. I did the dishes and was waiting for my first student. This is the last month he’ll be taking lessons with me and his father hadn’t paid for May yet (payment is due in advance). We had emailed back and forth and he had told me he’d send the money with his son in cash.
I was a bit disappointed when the son knew nothing about the money. So I went with him after the lesson and talked to his father.
Not a fun conversation. I might have raised my voice. We were both pissed at each other beforehand anyway. He said he’ll send the money to my account. Yeah. Sure.
My next student was already waiting when I came back. The rest of my teaching day was delightful as always. I do have a lot of very nice students. No need to get hung up on the outliers.
Then there was bodyweight training. And I still had most of my to-do-list ahead of me. Including trying a new way of making pizza dough.
I did turn the lights out on time, so that was good.
Today there will be cleaning and the aforementioned pizza and lots and lots of teaching and then knitting and Star Trek.
As I said. Phew.
