Grumble, grumble, didn’t get enough sleep again. And it would be understandable at my age if I had slept badly or something but no, lights out at 11.30 again.
I did do my full morning routine even though I didn’t feel like it at all and that made me feel a little better. There was breakfast and such and then time just passed any which way until I was late doing the breakfast dishes and was completely sure I couldn’t get the things done I wanted to that day. In between I was feeling rather sorry for myself with the aching feet and the voice that doesn’t work properly. I did start the day before the morning routine by researching laryngeal pharyngeal reflux. And later I decided that I needed a wedge pillow and ordered that. And I found a pretty good article on GERD for singers.
After the dishes I changed the sheets on my bed and then lunch was early:
The zucchini was getting old, there was leftover ground beef from the day before and all in all this meal was lovely. I played all the iPad games and felt bad for not cleaning the house but then finally gave myself a kick and vacuumed the old part of the house. I changed all the towels but skipped putting the recycling outside, dusting and cleaning the mirrors.
Then I taught my first student of the day who was wilting and clearly in need of Christmas break, then vacuumed the annex and cleaned the washbasins and toilets. With the last bit of toilet cleaner. I thought I had bought a new bottle but apparently not. Taught two more students, talked with my husband and son in between, folded laundry, started a new load, ate dinner, went online, started writing this post, did the dishes real quick, watched the next part of the Agatha Christie mystery with my husband, did Duolingo, watched a bit of C-drama while crocheting, found the knitting needles I need to lengthen the sleeves on my husband’s sweater and went to bed.
I think today I’ll just do nothing in particular. Bonus points for wrapping the two presents I have and setting up our minuscule Christmas tree.
