Rolled out of bed slightly too late but managed yoga and five minutes of meditation. Made breakfast. Didn’t hear anything from the boy so I went upstairs while the tea was steeping. For once he was already up. The way he looked I asked him if he had fallen asleep in his clothes but apparently that was his ‚freshly dressed‘-look.
Breakfast. Video games. Feeling awful for no apparent reason.
Talked with my husband, poor thing, who couldn’t help me. Did the dishes and went to the health food store. Still didn’t feel well and I wasn’t even sure if it was in my body or in my mind.
My husband made lunch:
We did two load of laundry. The boy slept through lunch, I woke him up around 2.30. And then I hung around doing nothing again until it was time to teach my students.
While singing along with my first student I suddenly had an epiphany about the novel-in-progress. I need more thinking time but I might be onto something and it might explain why I am so super-stuck on this book. Hm. A silver lining is shimmering on the horizon.
One thing that I did get done in the morning was trying to use a school photo of the boy for renewing his ID. Because of the pandemic we don’t really want to go somewhere to have his photo taken so I looked into places where you can get your photos online. It didn’t work but now I know what needs to be done and I have a note with all the info he needs for the whole process of getting the photo and getting his ID. Phew.
It still all needs to be done but at least now I have a plan.
After teaching I started writing this post, had dinner, watched some TV, looked at the dirty dishes sideways and went to bed.
Today is there will be running and my usual Wednesday teaching marathon, then nothing, I guess.
