I woke up around six, got out of bed because I had decided to do yoga first, took my thyroid meds, thawed a handful of blueberries, sat down at the kitchen table and did the whole ‚stare into space‘-thing for half an hour or so.
Decided that movement was not going to happen, got dressed and had breakfast. Then opened my laptop and started writing on my novel. Win!
My husband showed up when I had only one minute of my pomodoro left and yelled at me for leaving the porch door open. And the heaters on. Basically, the poor heaters in the living room tried heating the outdoors for 45 minutes or so. Oops. No idea how that happened, I usually make sure to close all the windows about four minutes after opening them. And I did, all the other windows were shut.
So my husband expressed the deep-seated feeling that the whole house would fall apart if he didn’t supervise everything. It made for a fun hour first thing in the morning.
I have to admit I’m even more confused than usual. It’s not that I’m not trying but there is a reason I am reading yet another book about organization for people with ADHD. There is also a reason why I live by lists and checklists and my bullet journal. On the other hand while that was a bad mistake nobody died. Everybody makes mistakes from time to time. For someone who is scatterbrained I’m usually pretty good at taking care of all those tiny moving parts.
I started crocheting the border on the Meadow blanket and am liking it very much. I played Duolingo for a bit, did the dishes, sorted the recycling and restocked the fridge with alcohol free beer and soda. Put a load of laundry in. Then I went for my run. The plan was to do 5.8 k of intervals. Slow and fast running. In reality I ran for about 400 meters and then lost all will to live. Walked for about 2 k and turned back around. I just couldn’t be bothered. I forgot to take a picture.
Walked back home to a husband who was still stressed out and refused all help. Took a shower and then waited for lunch:
Hung up laundry, couldn’t be bothered to do the dishes. The friend I had wanted to hang out with over video chat couldn’t make it, so I made big plans of more writing and doing all the things. In the end I spent most of the afternoon reading stuff on the internet, crocheting and watching Youtube videos. Practiced Chinese a bit more.
Then the boy and I watched and episode of ‚Eternal Love‘ while eating dinner. This one was rather good again. Things are heating up. We’re only four episodes away from the end.
Then the boy and I did all the dishes, I started writing this post and then watched an episode of ‚The King’s Avatar‘. I managed to go to bed on time, even.
Today there will be the weekly phone call with my mother, more crochet, the planning of the week and the next month and maybe some more writing.
