Since I had stayed up past midnight and then didn’t sleep all that well I had a not-so-ideal start into the day. I’m suspecting that I have more hot flashes than I’m conscious of and that they disrupt my sleep but not to the point where I wake up all the way. It was just that when I woke up around 4.30 with the feeling of „Hot, hot, hot! Need to get the blanket off now!“ it felt oddly familiar.
I woke up at 6.50 with basically no energy. Part of me feels that that’s what I get from taking a weekend completely off. I have to say I find energy management completely puzzling.
Since I was so tired I did everything very slowly and skipped my whole morning routine because I didn’t want to push myself. The theme of not wanting to push myself continued throughout the day. And so I ended up skipping cardio as well. I woke the boy up at 11, then did the dishes, ordered takeout and picked it up and then we had lunch all three of us together at noon so that the boy could still get to university on time:
For once I did take the duck instead of the fried noodles:
The duck was very good but I’m not sure if Gung Bao sauce was the right choice. I sat there reading and playing games until it was almost time for teaching and only managed to do the dishes because my first student had canceled.
Teaching felt a bit uphill, I had the impression that both the students and I are ready for a week off.
After teaching I talked with my husband and the boy a bit, ate dinner, read some more, started writing this post and continued to think about what I wanted to talk about in coaching later in the evening.
Over the course of the day I had become super motivated to finish revision of book 2 until the end of the week which would have meant going through 30 pages per day but then I felt too tired and meh to actually do it. Which is what happens often these days.
I did try to reach someone at the IRS in the morning but couldn’t reach anyone. I’m starting to think the number on the letter they sent me is wrong. Anyways, I’m thinking of maybe not doing anything because the letter said that it was based on everything they had gotten up until September 29th and I sent my forms in on October first which was right on time. Though last year the exact same thing happened, they sent me a letter stating that I hadn’t sent the form when in fact I had.
That’s when you think that you’re reward for dealing with all the small, niggly unpleasant things is getting more of them.
Of course I went to bed too late again after a very fun and pleasant coaching call. Which means at least my mood is better right now. Yawn!
Today is an extra long teaching day and the day I go to the health food store and maybe the tea shop as well. And mail the gas meter reading and the wood shredding form. Being an adult is all I ever dreamed of…
