I’m doing very well, I’m only a bit tired all the time despite going to bed earlier. Or maybe because going to bed earlier, no idea, will see.
I had another full day, did what is now becoming my usual extended morning routine including blogging and novel revision, then dishes and such, rode my bike to the supermarket, went to two shops to get everything we need (turns out it was not everything we needed, I will have to go out again for mint tea and parmesan today), came back a little late for lunch but lunch wasn’t ready yet:
I still didn’t have enough time to put all the groceries away. The boy actually showed up for lunch and we ended up talking afterwards which was nice but also the only break I had all day.
I taught my usual students plus a potential new one. I was so out of it that I didn’t even know her name without looking it up while she was right there but they still decided to start lessons next week. Because one of my students was fifteen minutes late I also managed to make a new student list for the upcoming year which was good and print out two contracts.
I had had vague hopes of doing bodyweight training in the evening but was way too tired. I had started changing the BRITA filter and de-calcifying the water kettle after lunch but then had to hang up some laundry which meant after teaching I came back to unpacked groceries and a water filter that was clean but otherwise untouched. I could not jump right into that, though, because my husband was busy making another red beet salad. On the upside he also was busy doing all the dishes so I won’t complain.
I finally realized why Thursdays are often extra hectic for me: apart from the supermarket run that takes more than an hour and is pretty stressful on its own Thursday is also the day where my husband only has two students and doesn’t start before four. So that’s the day where he always cooks extra elaborate meals and starts all the loads of laundry.
Good to know.
So I watched another episode of „Storm Eye“ first, did Chinese while almost falling asleep over it, then took care of the groceries and water filter and still managed to turn the lights out at 10.30.
This morning I woke up at 6 and was wide awake. Since then I’ve been yawning constantly.
I’m looking forward to all the cleaning, changing the sheets, walking to the health food store, only teaching three students and in between watch another 90-minute Zoom call. Fun!
