Really, I need to change my schedule to make more space for things that matter. Like sleep.
I had turned the lights out at midnight, slept until the alarm, was slow to get up because of not enough sleep and decided to skip the morning routine in favor of reading. By the way, I finished that book by mid-morning. I had plans to at least do yoga but the boy came downstairs for his breakfast exactly when I was debating whether it was too late for yoga or not…
After breakfast I stayed seated a little longer because I only needed two more squares on the blanket so I did finish one of them. As expected my husband had forgotten that the oven was stinky and gross and needed to be cleaned before we could make lunch and was completely thrown when I mentioned the fact so I let the oven soak while I was doing the dishes, then scrubbed the big black stains off and now we have an oven that is usable again without giving you instant cancer fumes.
Somehow everything was late and so I did not open the manuscript or exercise but instead helped making lunch. The potatoes could have cooked a little longer and there wasn’t enough salt but other than that it was very tasty:
I know it doesn’t look like much.
Then my new slippers came and are wider than the other ones. Which means I need to grip them more which is bad but I’ll wear them anyways and try to get used to them. And that on a day where I felt everything was itching and being touched in any way hurts. I guess I need some sleep and rest.
We started eating lunch forty minutes before I needed to teach and then the boy wanted to sit and show me things on Twitter until I rushed off. I decided that I also couldn’t stand it anymore that my two pairs of jeans are way too tight and so I caved and ordered a new pair a size bigger. Even if I manage to lose weight I’ll be able to wear those for a couple of months.
I taught all the students, texted the one who I thought would cancel and, yep, she did want to reschedule and now we have a new regular time slot for her. Which means I’ll never ever get the house cleaned on Fridays ever again because her new slot was the one break I had left on Friday afternoon.
After teaching I started writing this post, did the dishes, Duolingo and then sat in front of TV crocheting the last blanket square. Next up will be crocheting the border and weaving in all the dozens of tiny ends. Yes, I’m already regretting leaving those for so long but I just couldn’t.
I’m hoping for a restart today. On the other hand my usually pretty chill Wednesday got an additional two students including one who is sort of new. But who knows, maybe I will manage to exercise anyways.
