Knock on wood!
The change from an outdated php version to the new one was probably what did it.
Yesterday was a really full, busy and satisfying day.
I got up around 7, wrote morning pages and did yoga, woke the boy up, made breakfast and ran out of time for meditation. Had breakfast with my husband and with the boy, and wove all the ends in of the last two blanket squares.
In between my husband asked for my help with a mobility survey. He had been picked, probably randomly and we had answered a few questions which had resulted in a link to a longer survey asking everybody in the household where they went and how on Wednesday. Which was somewhat funny because that day the boy was the only one of us who had left the house. Husband and I both had skipped exercise and didn’t do any shopping.
There were a lot of questions like „how often do you have access to a car“, „do you have a driver’s license“, „how often do you use trains“ and on and on. Took me about half an hour to fill everything out. I had to look up how many kilometers it is to uni for the boy (34), 15 by train and the rest by subway.
I also liked the question about how far our workplace is from home (0 km) and how we get there (on foot). And if we work from a home office. Husband wanted to say no because we don’t do office work but I said yes because, well, that was the only option for working from home.
After that I actually opened the manuscript and revised for 30 minutes. Then hurried up with the dirty dishes, then went to the doctor’s office to renew my prescription and get the flu shot which took another 30 minutes, went to the small supermarket for the nice yogurt, then off to the big supermarket for all the rest and to the pharmacy for my pills. Came home at 1.15 to a husband who thought I must have had an accident or something because it took me so long.
I packed half the groceries away before finally eating lunch. I had been hungry for more than an hour at this point:
This is rice noodles with chicken, egg, bell pepper and all the herbs. Very good!
The boy came home while I was still eating and we talked a bit. Then I ate some chocolate while trying to read „The Misfit Mage and his Dashing Devil“ by MN Bennett. I do like the book and will probably read book 2 but it won’t become my favorite book ever. I did finish the book after dinner and started reading „Poet“, the latest Aubrey Faye.
I had to rush again after that short break because I still needed to take a shower before work. Managed to shower quickly enough that I could even trim my toenails. Phew!
Taught two students, had a break that I used to figure out how to sign up for the annual wood shredding thing. Taught three more students, ate dinner, finished the book, ate more chocolate, talked with the boy a bit, finally did the dishes and started writing this post.
Then I watched an episode of „No Doubt in Us” and did my daily Chinese even though it was already a little late.
Today will be super busy with all the housework but not much teaching and then – the weekend!
