I slept in because I forgot to set my alarm. Woke up at six and did my full morning routine, yeah! Including spending half an hour with the novel-in-progress. Not writing but reading and thinking. Had a good breakfast and some pleasant conversation with my husband and then the boy. When I was about to go grocery shopping the boy brought me a list from my mother-in-law.
I walked all the way there and got all the groceries. The list didn’t look all that long but the shopping cart was full. I seriously doubted I could carry all of that home by myself. Later the boy told me I should have called him on the phone. He could have come to help me. That didn’t even occur to me.
I did carry everything, resting every ten minutes or so. I’m sure my arms are a few centimeters longer now.
Came back home where my husband was right in the middle of making lasagna. So I put the groceries away as fast as I could, washed my hands a couple of times, assembled the lasagna and helped to make salad. Lunch was late:
The boy and I did the dishes and talked some more, then I sat down to get some things done. Well, I didn’t. Sat there, did some research for teaching in person again and that was it. I then watched some video, talked some more with my husband, had a sandwich for dinner and watched the „Mrs. Reynolds“-episode of Firefly. I almost feel like we should ration the episodes because there are so few.
I did manage to get to bed on time for the second day in a row, so that’s something.
I think I have such a hard time moving anything forward at the moment because it all feels rather overwhelming. The boy is having the same problem with two things he needs to do for school. He has been procrastinating for days now.
So I better take the advice that I gave him and start with something small.
Today there will be the weekly cleaning, the changing of the sheets and some other things.
