I tried sleeping in but failed.
Had like an ongoing argument – or rather discussion – with my husband all day. He is obviously unhappy and we were basically debating how much of that is my fault. Or something. It was the kind of day where he complains about people always getting in his way and objects being unwieldy.
Interestingly, the boy started speaking up at dinner time. He never does that but it was clear that he was completely done with the complaining.
I did do most of my morning routine, so that was good. (Writing? What writing?) I walked to the supermarket and bought all the cheese. Came back to a husband who was completely stressed out about making lunch and hearing that I was supposed to teach at 2.30.
So we had this scrumptious meal:
Arugula cultivated in a pot in my husband’s studio and parmesan cheese. We did not make the cheese.
Stuffed bell pepper. There is rice and olives and pine nuts in there somewhere. Also cinnamon, thyme and chili. It was very good. And yes, that is wine. We’re still on Easter break rules.
We did not give the boy wine yesterday because he apparently went to bed at about the same time that I got up in the morning and after waking him up three times he finally managed to get up in time to eat lunch. Oops.
We have now changed our rules, by the way, it used to be that we insisted on him getting up at 9.30 on days without school. Then the time slowly creeped to later until I was going upstairs some time between 10 and 11.30 to wake him up in person. And yesterday we decided that since he is technically a grown-up now that maybe we’ll just go with not setting the breakfast table for him and if he goes to bed late enough that he doesn’t want to get up before lunchtime that he maybe just sends me a text telling me so. Please.
He asked, „How am I supposed to text you when I’m sleeping?“ and my answer was, „You just text me before you go to bed when you realize that you won’t get up on time.”
We’ll see how that goes.
I did get myself some roses at the grocery store. Roses are my favorite and I adore this shade of red and they were only 1.99. Win-win-win.
After lunch I ate some chocolate (the idea of that chocolate tasted better than the chocolate itself, by the way) and then I taught two students. I had a break where I thought I would do all kinds of things but I ended up watching a talk about productivity systems, as one does.
Then I taught one more student, my last student of the day canceled, we had some more discussions about personal incompatibility while making dinner (yes, this is a bit exhausting, thanks) and the boy and I watched a delightful episode of ‚Torchwood‘ while eating dinner. Then I finished watching an episode of ‚Accidentally in Love‘. The series is starting to grow on me.
And then I watched an interview that Jessica Abel did with Austin Kleon while starting writing this post. And then I did the dishes, wrote in my bullet journal, did some yoga and went to bed. Not too late.
Today is cleaning day and who knows, maybe the stars will align and I will write a few new words or something like it.
